    Not trying to be funny but I use one of the cloth NEXT glasses pouches:)

    The DS Lite fits inside just perfect & of course you don't need to worry about the screens being protected anyway. The thing I like about the pouch being used as a case is that the DS still fits in your jeans pocket which is pretty handy if you ask me.

    Give it a try if you have one lying around;)

    No stickers.I suppose it is saying that you are customising it by using the mario case?

    Nope.I see no point tbh,as long as you treat it correctly then the screens should be fine.Also screen protectors can leave a nasty,sticky residue on the screen that is a real bitch to remove and could possibly ruin the screen.

    I use a PDA screen protector cut to size on my bottom screen only, only cost a couple of quid from ebay and the quality is far better than the specific DS ones I've seen & used previous.

    Had it fitted for about a year now(even transfered it over from my old chunky DS) and still doesn't have a mark on it, even after frantic Zoo Keeper scratchings:eek: That game killed my previous DS screen protector in a matter of weeks.

    I dont use a protector theres no need if you arent an idiot. Ive had a few DS lites and never scratched any of the screens. I did put a scrath on my original ds though getting a bit overexcited on monkeyball.

    Well I don't use one on my PSP as I have a Playgear Pocket which seems to protect it very well. The main reason I was wondering on the Lite though was because the second screen is touch screen.

    I think I may do as Tetlee has done and just protect the second screen so I don't have to worry if I get a bit 'energetic' on it! :D

    what the soft Hori case holding my ds in? If it is, it's the best, it holds my ds with a GBA game sticking out of it, 3 ds games in each of the little pockets plus the ds GBA dust cover & one more ds game in the longer pocket. Can't beat that, oh & it looks sweet! ;)

    Thats one long link....... They look like they might be, but probably not. Also, they look like a homosexuals handbag, but maybe thats the look you're going for :rolleyes:

    errr... yeah I think so or maybe it was off Ebay I can't remember tbh. either way it's a great case & I've had it since the DSlite launch. Thinking about it, the one for my ds was off Ebay & came in the original packaging. I think it was the other one that came from playasia. both are great but IMO the soft Hori case is better for the ds.

    Do you know where you are going to get it from yet? The only place I can find is the American Ebay.

    I bought those (there's two different designs) for my nephews this christmas & they absolutely loved them esp. the strap to carry them. I hooked the little mario hats on as well which just finished them off perfectly.

    Well I thought I was going to get one from Play Asia, but that is until I realised they were sold out! :(

    eBay may be my best bet now...

    I found the Hori cases in stock(I think, as they don't list wether they are in stock or not, as far as I can see) at http://www.renchi.com/index.jsp I don't know anything about them though, as I have never even heard of them before.


    I quite like the look of the multipouch one they have on there.
