You think the shoulder buttons will fail this time?

I have heard many different occasions where people have had problems with their L and R buttons on the DS lite and DSi... I have a DS phat and haven't had this experience and I play Call of Duty which if you don't know, you use the L button quite a lot..

Do you guys think Nintendo will bring us more durable buttons. I would love for them to do whatever they did with the DS phat because I've had mine for 5 years and it's still in perfect condition.

Never had a problem with any of my buttons, and I've owned EVERY Nintendo handheld.

My shoulder button messed up once on my DSi, but it works fine now...

My Ds Phat is fine. I've heard the shoulder buttons fail much easier in DSlite/i/XL's than the original. I've seen several topics about the failed shoulder buttons on Lite. My cousins own a DS lite, and neither of it's shoulder buttons work.

the 3DS looks like a DSlite. So I would assume the same crappy button failures will occur. Hopefully not though.

I hope not, on every ds I've owned they have broken, except my DSi which failed once but then I blew into the buttons then shook it alot and they worked.

I hope not. My DS Lite works okay, but my DSi buttons don't work if it's in my pocket for a day or is untouched for a day. >_<

My Ds.lite started to have problem with the shoulder buttons(at least the Left one.)

I've had a Phat and a DSi and the R trigger on both are messed up. The DSi's R trigger started messing up just a week after I bought it, too.

Something needs changing as far as I'm concerned.

My A and B buttons would trigger the power button if held for too long.

i have never had a problem at all on my ds phat or my ds lite,
maybe you guys are really rough with your systems, because mine had been dropped and other things and it's in great condition
