I just bought the new metroid special edition 3 days ago. The first few days, I could open and close it with the usual snap the console makes. But now when I open/close it makes this squeaky creaky sound. Here's exactly how it sounds from someone's video:

I've been searching and searching, turns out a lot of people have this problem as well. But I can't seem to find a straight awnser to the question, " Will it get worse or is this something I'll have to accept and live with?" Just wanna make sure before I do anything else. Thank you.

So after even further research, I've come to a couple conclusions. Either its fine, could possibly go away with time, or very well could be something I'll be stuck with, or this is beginning of the end for the hinges.

The squeaking is probably a good thing, when I first got my new 3DS XL it had a squeaking noise as well when you open and close it, I made a topic about it and people said that it's fine, the squeaking noise is probably because your hinge is stiff, which is a good thing because you wouldn't want a wobbly hinge.

Well sounds good to me then. You know how you start to freak out a little bit when you get something new (that's also expensive) and it starts to do weird stuff. I'll probably get the warranty just to be safe though. Thanks for the reply!
