    It sounds like it's dyin. Get a new ds lite. I got one and I love it. Nintendo made a red one and black one, these are the 2 newest kinds. Go try one from toys r us.

    You could get another phat DS, saving money, therefore reducing the burn if they release another version in the next year or so...

    I actually think the phat is sturdier.

    And does the lite have clicky buttons?! Of course not.

    I doubt they will come out with a new Handheld within the next year... usually we get about 6-9 months notice if not more when something new is about to hit so they can hype it up before sales... DS lite is acctually fairly new, although its not way different from the original DS its an update and will continue to be supported for a while...

    With the success of the DS/DS lite, specially in japan, i would actually guess you got a good few more years untill an update...

    They seem to release a handheld to match a console now usually comming up with a new one a year or so before the console. Nintendo loves to make money..lol and no better way then making exclusive gear for owning both the console and the handheld, like mini games and downloadables...

    GB 1989 SNES 1990
    GBA 2001 GC 2001
    DS 2005 Wii 2006

    The only exclusion to the rule was GBC, i think they tryed to stick out the gameboy as long as they could based on market controll instead investing to improve it...
    There were many handhelds "better than the GB, like Sega GameGear" they just didnt bother competing because they still had the majority of consumers

    GBC 1998 N64 1996

    but based on trends and how well sales still are i wouldn't guess you would have to worry about a new handheld till probably 2010 or later... Go get another DS and this time take it easy, when you can't beat a level put it down instead of chucking it across the room...lol

    LoL.

    But the thing is, you could buy a brand new lite, and then this summer they could announce something. and from this guys post it sounds like he would get annoyed by that.
