You think the shoulder buttons will fail this time?

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.




I think the DSI have less reliable R and L triggers if you ask me.

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

They really need to fix that design problem. Also the hinge is needs to be a lot more sturdier. And scratch resistant screens!

I've had problems with handheld shoulder buttons since my first GBA.

I've never had this problem with the original DS, but with my DSi, the R button stopped responding. I'm currently getting it fixed. :D

I hope the 3DS is even sturdier than the original.

My phat has broken shoulder buttons. I have to blow into them every time I want to use them. Not to mention the hinge is cracked and the top screen is about to come off.

Ummm... My shoulder buttons are a crapshot and the worse I've done was put my Phat and Lite in my pocket. If that's really rough, I love to see what you think of Iwata's "endurance tests" for the system.

Sounds like someone never paid attention
