Sometimes electronics break in funny ways. My gameboy advance sp broke when it fell in the toilet, and my ds lite had chocolate milk spilled on it. Well, that stuff happens when you let little tykes play with your stuff. if anybody else has any stories like mine share them here!

I had a video I shot while on a roller coaster of the guy in front of me accidentally dropping his mobile phone when the train took a sharp turn. I doubt he's a member here, so I share that story on his behalf.

may I suggest changing the name of the topic to just "how gaming systems break"? I'm sure there are some people who have funny stories about their home consoles.

Me and my phones are cursed, I've done the 'phone falls out of shirt pocket and into toilet' before, that one sucked. My favourite though, was when I was walking one day in the rain.... I dropped my phone and with my stride kicked it about 20ft ahead of me, it stopped in a tiny little puddle, the only one around. Having rescued it and realizing it was toast, I raised my fist to the sky and shouted 'damn you!'. D:

The only consoles that have ever broken on me, were the Xbox and it's sequel. All I did was buy them and they broke, crazy huh. Grrr!

My original N64 was bulletproof I'm certain. It got dropped down a full flight of stairs at least twice, accidentally jumped on, and catapulted across a room into a coffee table when some one walked through the controller cable at speed. Still worked fine.

Rawr!

I've never had a console system or a computer break on me. I did run over a cell phone with a forklift once. I picked it up off the ground and pushed the power button and it actually booted up! The LCD screen and glass were fubar'd though so I couldn't make out a thing.

Well growing up back in the days of the NES me and my brother fought a lot over who got to play. Well one day we were arguing pretty good over the controller and we were both pulling it and yanked it off the TV. Smoke started coming out of the back of it and yeah needless to say it didn't work anymore. Lol my Dad was pissed when he got home from work as he is the one who paid for it and we both got quite the spanking that night.

THERE... ARE... 4 LIGHTS!

Did you shout "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!" when it happened?

No I didn't actually. Everything went slow-mo, as I watched the phone slide towards it's watery destiny. It was an awesome twist of fate... which cost me a really nice phone. :/

Rawr!

I'd have been gutted, man. But seeing as you managed to hit the only puddle in sight, made it seem like more of a challenge - you know? Hence the "goal" thing. Or perhaps "heshoots'heSCOOOOORES!"

No, I blamed God. I don't beleive in God, unless something bad happens, then I like to imagine him sitting atop a cloud laughing at me. Perhaps it was he who shouted... "GOOOOOAAAALLL!"

But you still have enough respectful class to capitalize His name. Even after He smote your phone! You're a good soul, 'Chu.

Never had anything break on me; I take good care of my stuff and I'm not particularly accident prone. One time, though, I was playing Super Mario World back in 1994, or somewhere around then, so I would have been about 6, and the SNES froze up and the image started glitching somehow. I don't remember how, all I remember is being scared because I'd never seen anything like that happen before, so I ran outside because I was afraid the TV would explode or something. My dad came out and got me and told me it was okay, so I sat down in front of the TV and played Super Mario World for hours as if nothing had happened. Funny how that works. I think I actually asked my dad, "is it going to explode". When he denied my fears, I wasted no time in getting back on.

A few years ago I worked for a rental company that provided entertainment packages for after-prom parties. This was right after the Wii came out and was super trendy, so they advertised a setup with Wii Sports with a projector and a 20 ft. screen.
So one night my coworker and I were tasked with taking all that along with a bunch of other stuff, and figured that the Wii would be least of any problems we encountered.
Well, the system was packed in the box its sold in, but was loose inside, with no packaging keeping it secure. My coworker was carrying it and held it at an angle and the console came sliding out of the box, and fell about 3 feet and struck the hard floor at a corner, then landed flat. I thought "Its a Nintendo product, it can take a bump..." Nope. The damn thing was BRICKED.
The people who rented it were not happy, as they had a whole Wii Sports contest planned with prizes to give away. Oh well, s**t happens. Luckily my boss had gotten talked into the extended warranty when he bought it so we got it fixed.

I'm pretty sure the prom-goers found alternative ways to entertain themselves after the dance.

My little sister lost the stylus to my DS Phat and decided to use a knife instead....

All these water stories...
Usually electronics work just fine after you let them dry out.
At least that's been my experience.

**I went through quite a few PS1's: one time, I was playing a racing game on it, and then the system suddenly stopped working, and then it turns out that my little sister drooled in it. :/
**also, when I got a DS, I was going to give my little sister (same one) my GBA as a gift, but when we opening it, the screen was cracked. D:
**This one was about my DSlite. And when I was playing Megaman Starforce 1, I saved right before a boss, and I had one HP left, so during the battle, I tried to get a healing card, but I kept on loosing, even when I tried to get a healing card in a random battle, I couldn't get one. I normally am careful with my games but I was so frustrated that I shook my DS and the hinge broke. D:

I was sleepwalking one time and I took a sledge hammer and smashed my PSP.

To this day, I've been unhappy with Sony and their cheap, breakable products.

My PS2 earned a succinct lesson in gun safety when it played Russian roulette with a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol. It apparently did not realize that a semiautomatic pistol, unlike a revolver, automatically inserts a cartridge into the firing chamber when the gun is cocked. It's chance of winning a round of Russian roulette was zero, as it quickly discovered. I always knew it was a little blunt
