Geeze, reading threads about broken ds lites and different problems, scares the s**t out of me. My DS Lite is fine, no problems that i can see, no dead pixels, faulty buttons or touchpad and i don't mind the d-pad, it gets it's job done, it's fine imo. But now i'm afraid it will break. I treat mine like it's from porcelain and i love it too much, i think. Let me explain why: This is my first nintendo console ever and i ABSOLUTY LOVE it. I've only tried Metroid Prime Hunters and Kirby Canvas and can't stop playing them. And this comes from a (old, i might say ) PC gamer that got tired from all those crappy games with zero originality and gameplay that plagues the pc market today. Anyway, the DS Lite is like a revelation for me, playing these games feels like back in my days when i played Doom and Descent for the first time, it's incredible . Don't know what more to say, i love the thing. That's why i'm so afraid it will break, reading all this bad things about the ds lites. I bought it from Germany and i don't have any warranty for it because i don't live there. ps: sorry for my bad english skills.
