Same thing happened to me but they replaced mine no questions asked
Well it was inevitable, the dog's tail knocked it off the side table, dropped about 2 1/2 feet and got this. What the hell, my kids have literally used their DSI Xls as hockey pucks and nothing has happened to them. I babied this controller to no end, and now broken
$105 USD to repair, Nintendo refused to quote a new one to me, said not available. I told them I was not pleased with the durability, and they just gave the canned "sorry but" speech. photo.jpg
not happy camper
That's about as bad as my DS. I should probably be getting a screen protector for my GamePad.
