I still have several Game Boy and Game Boy Color systems from 10-20 years ago (yes I'm the original owner), all of which still work great. AA and AAA batteries aren't difficult to come by. Has anyone thought about what will happen to the NDS in 5-10 years? The rechargeable batteries in the newer consoles will not last forever, and I doubt Nintendo will keep making them after the console itself isn't sold anymore. Will we still be able to use our NDS systems in 10 years? With the huge ROM collections that some people have, not being able to use them would be something to think about. I'm curious if anyone has thought about this, or knows what Nintendo's plans are for the batteries, since they are custom for each console.
