Video: How much stress could a DS take if a DS could take stress?

Unlike conventional review sites, which are broken on a fundamental “what’s-the-difference-between-an-8.0-and-an-8.1” plane, Broken Reviews breaks stuff in order to review them. It most recently abused the Nintendo DS, subjecting to all sorts of weird shock tests. The video linked here shows a DS being dropped onto various surfaces from around wait-level height. Other fun tests include throwing it off a speeding motorbike and down a flight of stairs.

What have we learned? That the DS is fairly sturdy, and that some people are truly gods among men.
