Default I wish everything was as tough as my nintendo...

controllers....

So the other day I was getting stuff out of my trunk and I pulled out my bag with my nintendo advantage controller, four score, rf modulator, and 1 regular controller and set it on the ground next to me and then grab what I was trying to get out of the trunk. Just then it starts to downpour so I shut the trunk and run inside. Later on I head out for my friend'* birthday, have a good time and then head home. I get home and pull into my space and as I am pulling in I hear *CRUNCH* and think WTF?!?! So I get out and walk to the back of my car and see it... the white bag my nintendo gear was in... I ran it over

I grab the bag and head inside as it was sprinkling still. I get to my room and open the bag expecting to find bit of plastic and wires. To my surprise there is none. Looking it over, the only think broken was the joystick on the Advantage, but it can be fixed, and some scuff marks from the drivewat on the back of the advantage and hte four score. plugged them in and they work still. Now that is quality engineering.

I agree I tried to bust my Super Nintendo controllers and they just wouldn't bust! I even hit the darn things with a hammer! They still worked! I can't beleive there life span and even the abuse they take, they were designed right... Prolly in Japan it figures!

Physically tough, yes, but if you ever owned an NES:

Too bad the original Nintendo game cartridges aren't as durable.

Those things would get toasted so easily.....then the "fix" was to blow on the contacts. LOL.

Indeed. I found that sometimes the snap-down connector thingo would be the culprit too, jiggling it up and down would sometimes work also.
