Turn your broken DS Lite into a GBA Lite - mod genius!

Found 27th Aug 2014
This modification sees the top screen of the handheld completely removed, leaving just the Game Boy Advance side of things behind, with several alterations to smooth out the gaps left behind.

what? I don't get it.

you can buy replacement DS screens for about a fiver, replacement touchscreen film for 2 quid, hinges for about 1.20p etc. DS and DSlite have gba and ds compatibility so why muck about wasting time making it gba only when it only costs a few quid to get it running both gba and ds games again

Maybe because they want to?? I can see it being a wee project for someone if that's what they wanted to do.

Just because you think its pointless,doesn't mean others have to.

I wouldn't fart about with it myself but it does look pretty cool especially if you have an old one lying around

Ds lites are worth nothing these days so doing this is a great idea .

Where the heck can you buy that from?

Or is this all a ruse?

Nope, seems to be real. Just seen a game cube one.

It's a mod by 'Bacteria'.

He dismantled a N64, added the screen from a PSone, also batteries and speaker and squeezed it all into a new case.

Google "bacteria nintendo 64" for instructions and some YouTube videos.

I see the merchant page is presently marked as "(Banned - Do not post)", but not having any prior knowledge of any dispute with the site, I am guessing a combination of education, consistent moderation, & copyright issues (see the few links I have provided below).

Although in recent "Deals" listings, members would comment on how bad the retailer's customer service was, mention "Blaze", or find some fault with their product, so they may have tried self-promotion tactics.

Try asking the site's staff in the "Feedback" Forum.
