A fan recently visiting the Nintendo World Store in New York found and shared a fascinating relic.
it looks like it just wants to die haha
Nintendo consoles are the strongest even stronger than the PS4 and Xbox One. I don't believe neither of them can survive even being near a firework, now imagine that this Game Boy survived BOMBINGS. Wow just wow, how strong will the NX be then ? :D
Have you tried blowing up your PS4 or XB1 to see if they survive it?
There is a video on youtube showcasing people hammering the PS4 and Xbox One and they don't take a lot of damage.
You don't really GET technology, do you?
I do to the extent that you don't have a clue. I understand that the stronger the console has nothing to do with anything but it's a good thing to make your console to endure some hard hits.
It's a heck of a lot easier to break a console with several moving parts. That's the point. Nintendo builds good stuff, but so do the other two. The Wii U is just as easy to destroy as the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. The 3DS is a lot easier to break than the GameBoy, too. Advancements in technology do not change the laws of physics.
I wonder how much damage the Wii U can take? Probably not a lot XD
All about that japanese quality :3.The fire might not have been hot enough to burn the inside of it.
I had a kid come in to the store I work at a few weeks ago. He had his 3ds with him, and it was all taped up like it had been severely damaged. Turns out it had fallen out of a car going 70 miles an hour on the interstate and the only damage it had received was cosmetic. Talk about your durable technology. Nintendo handheld systems are built like tanks!
They do, and that is only ever a good thing. But they have to because they are for kiddies.
Maybe even harder than tanks. I am not a Nintendo fanboy but when I see good effort put into making a handheld or even a console to be this durable then you have to appreciate it.
Haha, I used to call my original DS a tank... That thing wouldn't break if you dropped a house on it...
If my GBA sp still had consistenly working shoulder buttons I would still play it religiously. I have had that thing for over a decade and for the most part it still works like it's new.
I swear they used to make stuff a lot more durable back in the day than they do now.
Cellphones come to mind.Yesteryears phones could ttake a beating. Todays barely take one.
Heck, nowadays phones get bent out of shape just by being in your pocket.
If only they had continued to make things that well. I have a GBC that has a half failed B button just from sitting in a drawer for 10 years. Need to press it down 5x harder than normal to get it to register.
My sisters GBA colour survived a house fire too! It didn't look as bad as this one, but the plastic was entirely melted. Really transformed the shape of the system as it became concave pretty much everywhere (as the plastic melted into the inner areas of the device). Looked pretty awful afterwards but she kept using it. Worked fine, even the sound.
See that's durability right there
Nintendo thought of WWII
