    Cracked hinge got you down? My DS Lite has a cracked hinge. I figured I'd super glue it, to give it a little more stability. It worked, for a while... And I take really good care of my DS Lite too... Too bad it's out of warranty... bah... What to do...

    My son's DS has a cracked hinge too. Well... to be honest, maybe cracked is not the right term. Let me re-think this... My son's DS has a MISSING hinge... I checked the warranty on his too, what a bummer, it's out of warranty too...

    Well, pondering my options I have come up with two workable solutions.

    1. Duct tape... sure it's good for fixing just about anything, but it would some how take away from the sleek look of the DS lite.

    2. Replacement case. I've not found many, and the ones I have found have been kinda expensive. I did however find one at a good price, that even comes with the tool needed to open up the DS to transport it from one case to another. twenty bucks, for a whole new lifespan for my DS, sounds like a good deal.

    Here's a link to the article:

    Is this better quality than the Shock! shells? If so, I might get it.

    Are the Shock! shells of low quality? I've been thinking fo getting a clear one; they look so good!

    Clear cases usually look cool, this just looks tacky and takes away from the cool design of the NDS lite.
