    the original gba's START/SELECT button is made of soft rubber right?

    i'm curious is all. i remember it felt very rubbery to me when i first held the gba in my hand back in 2001, so i was just wondering if i remembered wrong.

    ah i see, i was wondering why they're so durable if they're just regular soft rubber, i guess its made of a better material than i thought.
