|Rants 'n' Raves : DS broke again! :(|
|OK, yet again my DS has inevitably broke, the same way every other DS breaks. The right shoulder has cracked. I managed to catch this before it broke off, and as I still had that green case I got that time, I replaced the lower inside plastic. So it's gone from a partial case replacement, in which the outside was white and the inside black (looked kinda cool if I do say so myself) to white on the outside, see-through green on the inside.|
You can see a couple of scratches already on the green, but as of yet this is nothing to worry about.
What really needs to be done, is someone to make a new case with a super strong corner, perhaps the middle plastic should be metal instead, as the whole left corner is full of holes, with not real strength to it, even though it is the part of the case that needs it the most.

|I have the answer |
BUY A PSP. Had mine 2 years(almost) still in good condition. They are great for dev too.

|It reminds me of the Amstrad days... Good gear with bad cosmetics.|

It's always that corner that goes first!

|Do any of the NDS owners ever report that to Nintendo ?. Feedback should lead to more refined products !.|

|I've heard about the screen hinge cracking before, but none of the 5 DS Lites in my family have experienced it. My mom has played hers so much that her touchscreen is all scratched up and unresponsive in places, but no cracks.|

|I'm sure hundreds, if not thousands, have reported this to Nintendo. ..|
Easily fixable, and I'm not sure why they haven't...

|All they would need to do, is make the right corner strong enough, I would think it to be a very simple fix, however, people are happy to just buy a new ds when it happens, and Nintendo are making plenty money so replacing damaged ds's under warranty is probably cheaper for them.|
