I once stomped on a spare GC controller of mine to see if it would break (stupid, yes, I know). It took a while to cause any visible damage, but it was still functional for a few days afterward.

Meanwhile, Sony seems to somehow be making products that at least feel solid. Is this what success or loss does to you?
What? Also, every Sony console I've owned has broken, except my PSP. I dunno what to think about the PS3. I imagine they might be durable, considering they weigh like 20 pounds, but you have to wonder about their long tern durability. PS2s slowly lose the ability to read discs until you void your warranty to turn that small white cog. I had to do that, and it still doesn't read discs very well. Also, my first PS1 was destroyed in a lightning storm, and the second was destroyed when my sister knocked it over. Also, my small white PS1 with the screen still works, but the screen is mangled, it won't stand straight up.

I've never lost a Nintendo system.

It DOES sound pretty stupid.

I don't really get why people intentionally like to test the durability of Nintendo's products. I'm sure they do enough of that in NCL.

If it was first-party, I'm mad.
Anyway Solid, the PSP light (as opposed to heavy) is a pretty slick little piece of plastic. And PS3s are pretty substantial.
That was a joke.

Yes, it was first-party. In fact, it was a Wavebird. If it helps, it was originally my brother's.

I second Chup.

Really, WHY would you (or anyone, for that matter) wanna destroy something that was money well spent?

I pondered the same thing whenever someone said they'd go buy an Xbox just to destroy it.

Well, that's clever.

And here comes the part where people scold me for talking about injuring awesome Nintendo hardware in a thread about injuring awesome Nintendo hardware.

So? It's not like it's your controller, or anyone else's. Honestly, I don't see how calling me stupid because I broke something is good for anything. If I hear that you did something dumb, would it do anything useful if I called you stupid?

Well uhh, none of this changes the fact that you're stupid for destroying the wavebird, when you could have given it to me. :D
