When playing for example Mario 64, I can feel the right part of the
touchscreen to be a bit looser than the other side which is placed firmly
against the screen.
Do you think buying a screen protector might solve this problem? Or is this
just common and shouldn't I worry about it? (it doesn't interfere with
gaming, but maybe one day, in an agressive mood, I unwanted might put my
stylus through)

Are you saying your touch screen is loose?? Take it back. If your are going
to swipe that screen (like Mario Ware-up/down motion) it would seem that
it's just a matter of time before it gets even more lose. My screen is in
pretty tight with no movement of looseness.

It's not loose, but it's somewhat looser than on the other side... It isn't
noticeable if you just look at it or play with it, but when you look at it
from the side and just push your stylus in it.
No real problems, though. (taking it back is not an option for me...)

Not under a rock, I just don't bother reading many off-topic posts.
