with the gamepad costing that much i really don't even want to think about scratches on the screen.

are you guys getting a screen protector? which one are you getting?

do you think the nintendo official one is a rip off?

what about Hori?

Out of those 2 whichever one is cheaper is the best bet.
EDIT: Yeah i'd go with the Hori unless you really want that stylus form the Nintendo one.

You could say that or think that about tons of threads.

But anyway, no, I am not getting any screen protectors.

I don't use them for any electronics which is odd as I am very anal about stuff like scratches and whatnot, they just seem to be more trouble than worth and I take very good care of electronics and even if it's not true, in my mind it will be compromising the quality of the display.

I thought everyone got it. I personally hate screen protectors, but I'm using one on my 3DS because of that scratched screen issue. I see a line from time to time on the upper screen protector, so I'm pretty sure mine has the issue. It also suffers from a yellowish screen(the lower screen is fine, which makes it really obvious). The 3DS is really a step back from what I'm used to from Nintendo. :( Wondering if Wii U pad will also suffer from the yellow hue issue.

do you guys think a screen protector can actually hinder the experience?
this is a resistive touch screen after all, so i don't know if another layer could actually effect its performance.

i never used screen protectors on my DS/3DS, any insight would be helpful.

The Hori one on my Vita is pretty awesome. I can't even tell it's on there 90% of the time so you should be protected well and not compromise the IQ much if at all.

I'm thinking of it, but the price is probably stupid and I almost have a phobia and general anxiety of applying them without getting one spec of dust under the screen...


So probably not.

I don't think it should be much of a problem since it'd be pretty thin and the screen is resistive.

I use a protector on my Vita, and it's absolutely fine. I'd imagine it affects input ever so slightly, but as a pay off for never ever scratching your screen (unless something stupid happens), it's worth it IMO.

except with my original 3DS but that was due to a design flaw, not my negligence.

I do but I'm paranoid about screens I actually have to touch. My PSP is scratch free and I have no screen protector on it and just put it into my soft pouch whenever I stop using it.

I dunno, but it has to be some kind of scratch resistant material, right? Everything is scratch resistant nowadays. The only scratch I have on anything is a scratch on my phone from where I accidentally knelt on it. My entire body weight caused a scratch that you generally can't see.

I also just realised that it can't be Gorilla Glass, because resistive screens are plastic.

Same here, I tend to be very careful with all my screens but I'll probably get the screen protector just in case :P

the only concern is that it seems like something you spray on glass, not plastic.

My latest attempts to put protection films on my 3DS have been total failures with dust and cat hairs stuck under it. So I guess I'll just be cautious with the pad.

The only problem is when you have friends playing the thing, some can be very brutal. I had a friend of a friend wrecking havoc in the living room while playing Wii Sports tennis, crashing into a table and nearly launching the wiimote in the T.V.

Blaming RROD on users is a bit much. I'm really careful with all my consoles and accessories and I certainly won't take responsibility for Microsoft shitty hardware.

My launch PS3 is still alright and is seeing a new life with its brand new 500go HDD, Sony almost redeemed for my 2 broken Ps1.

Check my post above this.

Probably for glass? That site I linked, doesn't look like they were sure if it would work on plastic (or at least, work as well).

I'm probably going to order some of this stuff later this week, so I'll post some impressions. I plan to use it on my phone, Vita, nexus tablet, and the eventual WiiU Tablet.
