Nintendo Addresses "Cracking" DS Lites.

Recently there have been some blog posts and forum rants about small cracks on Nintendo's DS Lite. Gamers who have noticed this are concerned that the crack will lead to a broken hinge on the handheld. Nintendo today addressed the situation, stating that it's a cosmetic issue and only a very small number of DS Lites are experiencing this. The official Nintendo of America statement reads as follows: "In the U.S., the reported number of small cosmetic cracks in the plastic hinge of DS Lite systems represents less than 0.02 percent of the total units sold. This cosmetic issue in no way impacts the gameplay or integrity of the DS Lite. Nintendo stands behind the quality of our products and encourages DS Lite owners to contact our Customer Service Department if they are not happy with the functionality of their systems".
