    I recently bought a ds lite at gamestop and I noticed, that some things were off about it namely the overall backing of the shell itself and the non glossy touchscreen. Also the L button feels a bit loose with a sound. Otherwise it works fine for DS games (I don't have any gba games to test it on)

    Yeah looks like a real DS Lite to me ^_^ Not all of them were made to same way (IE: case, finish on them, etc etc)

    Because the back of it in the writing looks different compared to all the others which say Nintendo DS lite and usually CE at the bottom. Mine does not which is why I am worried lol.

    I've seen fake ones from eBay which can't load NDS games at all. They are just Game Boy Advances reassembled to look like NDS.

    If you can play fine with it your DS games, do worry not.

    Quickly compared the photo to one of my DS-Lite (I have 3 lol) It's 100% the same, don't worry ;)

    Thanks guys :) I just thought having no DS lite on the back meant it was a knock off or maybe it was replaced shell.

    The "Nintendo DS Lite" writing is actually under that big sticker near the Slot-1 :P that sticker isn't normally here.
