If i play for more than 45 minutes my joints on my hands start to hurt and for the longest time I couldnt figure out why.

Picking up the DS lite, they're both about the same dimensions. The stick is weirdly placed but it's not THAT bad.

It's the weight of the top screen pulling down and forward. It makes it so your fingers aren't just supporting the system, but its top heavy, pulling forward and straining your fingers to hold it for extended periods of time.

Really hope this gets fixed if they do make a revision for the system. :/

Hmmm, ever try stretching your hands/fingers once in a while?

lol you guys act like you've never played marathon sessions on anything you own.

I can play 360 all day without pain in my hands. Same with a DS. Seems silly that it should happen so quick when playing a 3ds.

Except I have done 12+ hour marathons with my 3DS just fine with no pain or cramping.

the only time my hands cramped was when i was playing monster hunter freedom 1 (it was my first time clawing and my index finger hurt like hell for the next few days)

nowadays clawing is natural (no cramps or anything)

I'm with ya tc, the 3DS is not comfortable to grip. mostly because of the top screen, as you mentioned, but also it's a very angular and small system.

You're so right...the top screen is ridiculously heavy! It must weigh...like 50 grams! I don't know what kind of muscle men they think are using these hefty machines, but surely they can't expect men like you and I to do so comfortably. How inconsiderate, Nintendo!
