    anyone elses n64 still run superbly weven after like 8 years ( or w.e. ;) ) of gaming on it?
    its strange how like 3/4 of the xbox 360s pooped out and had to be sent in for repairs after a years.

    n64 has a lot less moving parts
    xbox 360 has a a bunch. to name some major ones: hard drive and a disc drive.

    nintendo makes very durable things. you'd be suprised at what my brother's ds has gone through and still works. lets see... hes dropped it in water, knocked it off the table an uncountable amount of times, and other things.

    Nondisc based consoles tend to last longer

    The N64 was pretty awesome.
    Both of mine still work after so long.
    Actually.
    All of my systems still work.
    So I don't really know what it has to do with Nintendo durability.

    Yes mine is still in working condition, after a bit of blowing that is. ;) I was just playing Banjo Kazooie the other day.
