a new solution for the scratching of the top screen is a lot better than putting a cloth between the screens. you'll need an Xbox 360 (im not sure about the slim ones). yank 2 feet off the bottom of the 360 and put them on the top screen edges of your 3ds to add extra length between the screens. it should look like this:Untitled

Or you could just buy little pads and let your 360 remain nice and level. :S

the feet on the 360 raise it about 2mm off ther ground and after you yank em off theres a layer of plastic feet.

It looks nice, too! I might take them of of my cousins 360 when he isn't looking =P

But does this leave the system more vulnerable to dust and dirt entering the system while it is closed? How much more room in now available between the screens for stuff to enter?

its only like an extra 1mm of space and ive had the 360 feet on mine the past week and there is no extra dust at all, the only thing you have to be wary of is if they fall off, which they wont do if you close your 3ds and push down where the rubber feet are (trust me i pushed down on the feet really REALLY hard and nothing bad happend) also if for some reason you wanted to take them off just pull them off and they leave no residue behind. and if you mess up you can do it again as there are 8 feet on the 360.

I don't get it... what is everyone talking about??

I've owned my black 3DS since launch, never used screen protectors, and thrown it various bags or briefcases without anything protecting it. My top screen hasn't been scratched in the slightest, and I've even tried to hold the system tightly and see if there's any pressure or effect. All that happens is a smudge on the top screen from the edges of the lower screen, but one strike of my finger and it's gone. It doesn't seem capable of scratching, and I just can't imagine that ever being a problem based on the design.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

I get smudge lines too, not scratches. But I always close my 3DS carefully. Maybe the people who are getting scratches instead of smudges are closing their 3DS too hard.

im betting it has to do with the plastic of the screen more than slamming it shut (which most people who have this issue dont do).

I don't know how everyone's is, but mine only marks the right side of the screen. So if it has to do with the lower screen's rim marking the top screen, why doesn't it mark both sides of the top screen?

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

I do seem to be lucky or something, as I've also never seen the black-screen-of-death error, nor has the 3D ever given me any discomfort. Yay for luck!

Ok, This problem is NOT due to slamming the system or treating it too roughly. Trust me, I likely have one of the most overly-protected 3DS systems out there. I'll freak about even a fingerprint on the top lid. Yes, usually it is just streaks that can easily be cleaned away. Eventually though, you may have the misfortune of a small scratch being landed on the top screen along with the normal smudges. I went months with just smudges until I just recently realized a tiny scratch. It will happen eventually if it hasn't happened yet.

Well I put 2 of the rubber feet from my 360 on the screen. It works fine but it doesnt close all the way. I might try to check out my local ACE to see if they have thinner rubber nubs.

thats what is supposed to happen, it leaves about a millimeter of more space between the screens so they dont touch. if it closed all the way then it would be scratching the screens.
