So ive had my fat DS since the day they came out and never had a problem with it. I have dropped it numbers of times over the years and without damaging it. Its very sturdy. Not too long ago I noticed a little crack on the left hinge plastic piece (if youre looking at it from the back). Yesterday at school it fell out of my backpack about 6" to the floor and the plastic circle part (on the top that loops around bottom) where the crack was broke off. It all still works, its just broken on the one side. The screens only wobbly if you pull on it, but is there anyway to repair this?

I will post pictures later.

dealextreme.com still sells replacement shells for the original ds.

just be aware that when re-assemblying it to take care and make sure that the lower lcd display doesn't touch the pc board and short the fuse. the design of the original ds is such that there is a lot of metal to metal contact if you're not careful.
