The 3DS is an expensive, beautiful piece of gaming hardware. Because it's so expensive, owners might be prone to notice the smallest things.

One gamer in Japan apparently has a paint issues with the Dpad and a button on the Nintendo 3DS. The paint on the Dpad looks warped; a line of some sort appeared near the A button. Uncomfortable buttons and Dpads can make for unpleasant gaming.

The machine is still under warranty, so this will (hopefully) have a happy ending. But is this an isolated incident? Anyone else out there with similar paint issues on 3DS buttons or is this owner just being hypersensitive?
