I just threw my 3DS off the Sears Tower and it broke. What a flimsy piece of sh*t.

Why and seriously? [Height x weight = Smash!]

This may be a little off-topic, but I know for a fact that DS games are extremely durable.

I once went swimming and didn't realize I had 2 DS games in my pocket. One was Mario 64 and I think the other one was Mario Kart. I swam in the pool for a good 15 minutes before I got out again (I was alone, so it got boring). About another 15 minutes later, I was ready to play my DS again when I realized I had forgotten to take my games out of my pocket, and then I noticed they were missing.

I went over to the pool and saw my two games just lying there at the bottom of the pool. Keep in mind that by now they had been in the pool for at least a half hour. I rescued my games and let them dry for a bit. When they were dry, I popped them into my DS to see if they worked, and lo and behold, they did!

Nintendo makes some amazing stuff.

Water should do nothing to your games or systems as long as they are not receiving power.

Fun tip for if your games/system gets wet (I have used this on my iPhone successfully, but it works on any electronics).

Fill a tupperware container most of the way full with uncooked rice. Then put your wet portable electronic device in it (dry the outside first, of course). Leave it in there overnight. The rice will absorb the water from the system. In the morning, turn it on. It should work. If not, leave it in there and try it again at night. I dropped my iPhone in a toilet (after being flushed!), and did this after it wouldn't turn on, and it still works perfectly a year later.

Honestly, if you're worried about it breaking - get a case. I have a sturdy leather case for my DSi. I don't carry the DSi in my pocket, I carry it in my purse, so it works. You could also get a silicone case that goes on the DSi all the time in case you drop it (though it's usually not a problem to drop Nintendo stuff from most people's body heights). Screen protectors for the screens are musts for me, though the clamshell design is nice and the plastic is much more durable now (no screen protector on the iphone and barely any scratches).

If my system weren't matte, it would look like new (stupid discoloration from hand oils near the buttons - if someone knows how to completely get rid of that, it would be sweet).

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

I'm bummed. I just got my family a second 3DS on Friday night to take advantage of the Pokemon Promotion, and before we owned it a week our system developed 2 stuck pixels near the middle/bottom of the top screen. Here's the problem I'm in, if I had not already received and downloaded the Pokemon game, I would just take the system back to where we got it from and exchange it for a quick solution; but if I do that I'm pretty certain that I will lose out on the free Pokemon game. I guess I'm going to call Nintendo but I'm willing to bet that they will tell me all they can do is have it repaired. Which sucks because we just got it and having it repaired will take weeks to a month until we're back to gaming on it. If Nintendo can't help me, I might try to see if Target will exchange it and allow me to do a system transfer which should save my purchased games?????
