    I made a similar topic last year so I figured I'd do it annually. As you all know, it's less than a week until we are 2 years away from the end of the world 2010. I would like to know the state of y'all tempers' gaming devices? Please answer the poll and please state exactly which console you own.

    Also, if you chose 2 or 3, what was the reason it broke?

    Have a prosperous New Year guys! [​IMG]

    Had to get my DS Lite repaired near the start of the year. It used to turn on and off by itself. It didn't happen often at first, then started to happen more and more. Was out of warranty, though Nintendo fixed it for free anyway. [​IMG]

    Right side hinge on my DS has been broken for a year, and has to be held in a specific position to keep the top screen's image viewable, but it's not so bad if you stick the child-resisting strip of of a regular size Bic lighter into the gap between top and bottom screens. (Holds it in position just right.)
    Not the prettiest fix, but it beats holding the top screen in place manually.

    My right hinge on my DS has been broken since last Christmas, too lazy to get a replacement shell just yet. No problems really since my snap on hardcase acts as a nice makeshift hinge, although it's hard to play an fps or something that really requires the l and r shoulder buttons to be pressed when I'm holding my DS on an angle (Not the DS horizontal) as I usually do because then it will just flop around (The hinge is loose so no fixations as the normal hinge).

    DS Phat - Still working, screens looking a bit fuzzy these days. Thought that could just be my old man eyes!
    GameGear - Still working, sound and everything.
    Dreamcast - Tip-top condition.
    Sega Saturn - Perfect.
    NES - Finally bit the bullet a month or so ago. It's a front loader and suffers the flashy black screen of death.
    Super Famicom - Perfect condition.
    Xbox360 - Still working, can one ever be in perfect condition though?
    N64 - Still in perfect condition, although I can't find my SM64 cart anywhere. [​IMG]
    MegaDrive - Perfect condition.

    Had to sell a couple of consoles this year though, including my GameCube. [​IMG]

    PS3 - Perfect
    PSP - Perfect
    Wii - Perfect
    DSi - Perfect

    Older stuff, NES->GC, Coleco Tabletop arcade games, PC, etc all working just right. I'm sure had I been a 360 owner, the list wouldn't be as rosy.

    PS3: perfect
    Xbox 360: I have had 3 RRODs

    NES: perfect
    N64: perfect
    PS2: perfect
    GCN: perfect

    It's amazing how a 25 year old system can work perfectly while a 3 year old next gen system has broken down 3 times.


    Are you trying to start a flame war?

    Xbox 360 - 2 Years old, one RROD about 6 months ago, no problems since
    Wii - No problems that haven't been caused by me to start with
    NDS Lite - Great
    PSP-1000 - Great
    PS1, PS2 & Xbox - All work like a charm once the dust is cleaned off, but the controller wires keep confusing me!
    Gameboy Pocket - Seems to work, munches batteries for fun, but other than that it's good.
