...and that's the shoulder buttons. A lot of Nintendo's later handhelds have had awful shoulder buttons that stop working fairly soon...the SP, the DS Lite, and from what I've heard, the GBM and DSi...all of them have shoulder button issues...and the problem seems to be very common.

Also, maybe it's just me, but I've found the shoulder buttons on every handheld system except for the original GBA and PSP to be a bit uncomfortable, and to make my fingers ache after continuous play. Hopefully they'll fix that, too...

My ds phat shoulder buttons are crap, but no matter how I use my sp's shoulder buttons, they just broke, unlike my phats shoulder buttons >_>

Battery Life is all that's on my mind at the moment, but this is Nintendo were talking about so I'm not too concerned.

My DSi shoulder buttons work just fine. So do my DS Phat's. Maybe I just got lucky?

Yeah, my DS phat's buttons work just fine, but they start to get a bit uncomfortable to use after a while. Haven't had a problem with my DSi's yet either, but I think I'm just lucky.

And I've had a grand total of FOUR SPs, and ALL four of them have had one or both of the shoulder buttons die on me at some point. And the same thing happened twice with the Lite. I'd thought it was just me, but there are so many topics on the DS board about "HOW DO I FIX MY DSi/LITE'S SHOULDER BUTTONS?", so I'm figuring it's a pretty widespread problem.
