    There's quite a few new things to the Plaza, when I opened it I got 23 Accomplishments (cough Achievements).

    I like the map of where the people you street pass are from.

    3D video recording is a nice option shame the camera is so crap.

    I opened the eshop and there's no sign of any demos yet maybe tomorrow.

    It seems to be adding people you've played online (Mario Kart) as well, so you should have loads. You're in my Plaza now. :hiya:

    Edit: you can only use people you've street passed in person on the quest and puzzles.

    If you carry it in your pocket then put something like a glasses lens cloth between the screens when it's closed, as pressure on the case can cause the lower screen surround to scratch the top screen.

    That's a load of rubbish, I've been carrying my 3DS around with me for months and my screens don't have any scratches.

    Mine does they're only light scratches and they're not really that visible when playing games but they are there (on mine and many other peoples) so continued ware would presumably make them worse. Look at your screen in a bright light when it's off, the scratches appear in line with the two sides of the bottom screen boarder.

    A whole thread on the problem...
    http://3dsforums.com/questions-answers-40/3ds-scratching-itself-24601/

    Perfect example...

    I've just returned mine today due to having 2 scratch lines on my top screen, and a circular "print" from my analogue nub...very common issue, and annoying if you have the scratches, as they only get worse.

    I'm going to check my new one later on, and I will be placing that piece of foam you get when new, back inbetween the screens when not in use.

    Quality control missed this one, and nearly a year on, still no fix, as with the linked thread, people still have the issue.

    EDIT: I'm gonna put 2 foam "feet" in it, as I found a sheet of them that came with my old speakers, for use as feet for them.That should stop it.

    Looking at my 3DS now, I don't think there's any clearance between the screens at all when closed, if there is then it's only 1mm. The rubber stops have either sunk into the lid a bit or were never big enough in the first place.

    My screen is spotless, no scratches: http://i.imgur.com/bQcMv.jpg All my handheld systems have been like this that I've ever owned, I always make sure the screens are clean.

    Japan was the only region to get demos in the eshop yesterday, they were...

    Monster Hunter 3G
    Dead Or Alive: Dimensions
    Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic
    Crayon Shin Chan
    New Love Plus
    Puyo Puyo 20th Anniversary 3DS

    Each game demo can only played a limited amount of times, between 5 and 30 times.
    There's no word yet on when we will receive demos or what they will be.

    I just thought what I'd love to see implemented in the next update: flash player! I love the QR function in the 3DS (using the camera to scan special codes found in magazines etc to quickly gain access to various websites showing videos/pictures etc) but unfortunately because the 3DS' web browser doesn't support flash, it's pretty much useless.

    Wouldn't it be great to be able to watch YT videos in the palm of your hand?
