If you held off on purchasing the 3DS until the recently released 2DS, do yourself a favor and don't break the screen. As one unlucky girl found out after dropping her new system down a flight of concrete stairs, it would cost over $65 to have it repaired. For those who don't know, the 2DS system is comprised of a single large LCD screen unlike the clamshell design which is made of 2 separate screens. The girl contacted Nintendo and they quoted her a $65 repair cost which didn't include shipping and handling so be sure to keep your shiny new 2DS safe and secure. Since this story has begun to spread across the web, you can expect a flood of third party shells and guards to become available to protect the system (I have no doubt that a NERF shell will become one of the best options).
