    I'm just curious. I've had cosmetic cracks on my DS Lite's hinge that naturally form from stress and Nintendo tightening the hinge to much, causing the battery light cover on the right side to break off and the hinge to break. Now I know there are other causes, like falls (in combination with sucky protection in some cases) and just plain old tampering with the system.

    Is this a huge problem with the DS Lite? Has this happened to you? I use my DS Phat most of the time that I bought used at Gamestop for 80 bucks because my Lite doesn't seem so durable. Share your experiences. I had to send mine into Nintendo TWICE for the same problem, and I'm short 70 bucks (shipping and repair costs) because of it.
