    Why would the 3DS be more fragile than lite? Its only a screen with parallaxes installed, nothing much of an unusually fragile parts there.

    At least if the shock force isnt too big.

    Also, there is no movable parts like lasers, and thats a big + for 3DS. But yeah, you could break your camera protection glass, as well as could the screen break if it fells on it.

    Try running it over with a car.

    It's obvious we are dealing with a nervous gamer here, he learned he can smash his joystick into the wall and he is hoping to do the same thing with 3DS.

    But as you say, it really is pointless. Why drop it? I mean, i understand if it fells accidentally, but drop it... nah.

    When the 3DS is finally released, go buy it, try to break it, then send us photos, please.
    I, on the other hand, will buy actual games for it, they are just a little more entertaining than bashing an expensive piece of hardware.

    You mean amusing yourself by throwing the 3DS to the ground or bouncing it off a wall? No, it probably won't be that resilient.

    I think it might survive if it's closed.

    It's invincible! It's made out of pure diamond so NO MATTER how hard you throw, steamroll, smash, shoot, run over, burn, cook, freeze, shock, hammer and pee on it, it will NEVER break! It's indestructible! So what are you waiting for? Get your 3DS today!

    Note: Repair kit and medical equipment sold separately.

    Bouncing off the wall should be fun. Get few rubbers onto it and throw it towards your family member [​IMG]

    I didn't say that it was indestructible. It just has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any bulk material. But it means "unbreakable" in ancient Greek. [​IMG]

    Nowadays, they can make diamond sheets of diamond that don't have the weak places that natural ones have.

    Here is how to test how strong it is...

    1) get a ds phat and a 3ds
    2) tie a piece of string to each of them
    3) play a game of ds conkers

    and there's your answer.
