  3. Part of my 3DS broke, and Nintendo honestly deserves praise

the circle pad on my New 3DS XL came off. it'd been a bit loose for a while so I figured it was inevitable.. Turns out the pad itself wasnt broken. the plastic plate connecting the circle pad to the console had snapped in half .Half still connected to the pad, the other half connected to the console

For months Ive been playing with this thing effectively broken, and I didn't even realize it. and I slipped it back into place and it works just as well as it has been. Obviously I have to fix this, but the fact that for months this was going on and I had zero issues is just really impressive.

Nintendo has always made really sturdy hardware, and the 3DS just continues that. Ive dropped this thing feet onto concrete before, a few times, and still it holds up great.

So yeah. Thank you Nintendo, for not putting out a bunch of cheap crap that falls apart when one thing goes wrong.

Yes. Nintendo is the Apple company from the video game industry. Their products might not be mind blowing but they're very high quality

Uh, the DS/i/l had a high chance of hinge and trigger failure.

The good thing is that, unless youre a total klutz, the circle pad is a pretty easy DIY fix.

Clearly, you never got a hold to an N2DS. Felt cheap, and top screen cracked in less than three weeks.
I don't care if an item is useless - it exists, so therefore I must get it. xD -Peter_19-
