I'm still on my first DS...

Nearly six years, it's lasted me, and it's finally starting to go slowly downhill. Sometimes, the bottom screen flickers, or lines of contrasting brightness dance across the screen, or it doesn't read the game card, or the top screen freezes white when I start a game. But it works fine for the most part.

I just hope it can hold out 'til the 3DS is released. And I hope the 3DS is as durable and entertaining as the DS was.

My launch Phat is still working perfectly, and is the only DS I've ever had.

My pet peeves include ill-maintained eletronics and bad parking.
