Lucky for you pricedrops for N3DS are very near. Like - $50+ pricedrops all around - even before extra black friday sales.

N3DS officially got price cut to $100 starting Nov 25

 

Do you guys think I should get a new one or just send it for repairs?

Even before you factor in extra discounts that are bound to happen BF/Holiday, buying N3DS may only be an extra $10-20 more expensive vs getting this fixed. It may even be cheaper. Gotta believe that fixing the 3D screen is no trifling matter. Quick google search on the cost for that repair is around 75-85 dollars.

Getting the N3DS XL instead may be a little more expensive - maybe only $30-70 extra.

When I went from 2DS to N3DS XL, I noticed a pretty big jump in load times. The c-stick nub made Smash 3DS way, way better too.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Thats true. I guess I will wait for Black Friday then.

Damage to the inner screen is usually caused by overheating i think. 

Thats true but its like, I live in canada and its pretty cold these days. So its just odd T_T

I wonder if it would be cheaper to get Nintendo to fix it or just buy a new one.

I wouldn't recommend trying this, but you could easily break the inner screen without cracking the outer part.  The outer part is somewhat flexible, so if you apply pressure, it will bend but not break.  The actual screen however, is not flexible, and it will crack.  

When I had to replace mine, it was something like 80 dollars.  Course, that may have changed.  So, definitely cheaper than buying a new one, specially since you have a special edition.  Unless you want to upgrade to the new 3ds of course. 



Ugh that sucks.That reminds me the PS2 era, that my PS2 broke so many times due to tripping on the wire or younger brother mayhems, that by the end I had bought 3 different PS2.

See how much Nintendo charges for the repair, and if its cheap, go for that.But seeing how the screen itself broke and itself needs replacement, I dont see it being cheap XD(If i had to guess, they would need to dismantle the whole upper part of it just to put a new screen.That cant be cheap).Otherwise, wait for the black friday and find the cheapest deal you can find.I know that stuff in Canada are generally more expensive than in the US, but it shouldnt be hard to find a new 3DS for around 120 dollars(the equivalent of it I mean).

But yeah, it sucks.And having a younger sibling myself, I can understand the pain!

Break something of hers of equal value. Justice must prevail.

Loll I am not that mean xD

Did you at least yell at her and call her out for it? If not, you should.

Not really but I think she knows what she did and she can't play those games anymore so... I think she learnt her lesson.

Mhmm thats true. I guess calling them wouldn't hurt either. I will call them after my ps4 pro comes.
