@ludist210 Nah when I contacted Nintendo they said $80 to look at it with no guarantees of it being fixed or them not erasing my data. So I decided to just wait until New 3DS came out. And then I decided to just wait until it is on sale or something. Koovaps did generously lend me one of his many 3DS so I have been playing a bit on there, but I wouldn't buy games on his 3DS.
Mine still sort of works though, if you don't move. I can probably at least buy Xeodrifter on sale now and then play it when I get a New 3DS and transfer to it.
There are a couple of free songs for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy - Curtain Call available now for those that are interested. Even better, the song 'Corridors of Time' from the best RPG of all time - Chrono Trigger - is also available for download for $0.99 now.
