    DS Lite-Polar White hinge cracked?!

    I own 2 DS lites, polar white color. If you close the cover and look at the left hinge there is a hairline crack on both systems. What the hell? Apparently this is a well known problem w/ the DS Lites. Anyone else having this issue? I didn't believe it myself til I found another forum with people complaining about this.

    Yup, this was a huge problem with the DSs. Alot of people's hinges completely broke so you got lucky. I have heard even though it is a manufacturer defect, Nintendo still charges $50 USD. I have a white DS as well and luckily have not had a problem. I baby the damn thing though.

    HAH. If Nintendo wants me to continue to own their products, they better well fix it. LOL. I'm getting two Wii's as it is too. We'll see what they say when I call them

    I don't have that for myself. I own two DS's, one for myself, one for my girlfriend. I will be purchasing two Wii's, one for myself, and one as a Christmas gift for my brother.

    How will you be able to get 2 Wii's if they only allow one per household?

    Oh wait, you can just go to a different store. xD

    Well, since I'm 24 years old, I don't live at home. My brother, who is 17, lives with my mother yet. .

    yeah i just returned my DS to the EB games here, (with the receipt) and they took it back and gave me a new one.... if this one happens too, im just gonna go get a black one and hope they dont have the same problem... anyone know if the black ones have the same problem or was it jsut a limited number of the white ones?

    Makes me glad I got me an oldschool DS

    Is there any significant hardware difference between the DS and DS Lite apart from the four different brightness levels and new physical design? By this I mean does it use any different networking protocols, enhanced hardware features (like texture filtering) and the like. I have never had such problems with my DS (hope I didnt just jinx it).
