I was looking at my 3DS today and the hinge was starting to bother me. Mostly because I bought my GF a 3DS and hers has no play at all. Kinda bugging me today.

In my opinion, the 3DS can make pop-tarts.

No one has a response, because it has been settled that the hinge is suppose to be loose. I apologize if I come of rude. Mine has been loose since Day 1(March 27).

Mariofan15 did respond to your question.

Yes, yes I do. Sometimes when I slap it hard, it closes on me.

Oh well, at least I got some reassurance about the hinge on my own 3DS.

Too tight of a hinge leads to cracking. However much it bothers you it is far better than the end result that its parents suffered from:

Mine never separated, but it has a very noticeable crease. It was probably only a matter of time.

To be honest mine is a mix of the original DS and DSi. It has a smooth feeling to it when I open it, but it's not wobbly or loose feeling, but at the same time it gives an impression of being loose from when I open and close it since it's so smooth compared to the DS Lite.
