I'm afraid that repairs will be too expensive. A case replacement will be required, plus, most likely, the cables are torn, and 3-5 pcs pass through them. (depends on model and place of breakage). This is if they broke off the upper part of the console from the bottom, and not across somehow.

  • Action replay
  • Action Replay MAX Duo

The second version not only is for hacking, but also has a second slot for powersaves for Nintendo DS games.

  • Action replay
  • Action Replay MAX

Both versions offer codes for hacking games as well as the FreeLoader which bypasses the regional lockout on the console to play import games. The MAX version's extra features include a 1019 memory card and more codes. The original Action Replay's dongle could not be used for saving games, but for codes only. These products also worked in GameCube mode on the Wii before the second firmware update.

Nintendo DS

  • Action Replay DS (1)
  • Action Replay DS (2)
  • Action Replay DS EZ
  • Action Replay DSi

The original Action Replay DS came in two versions, the first one was a simple card with no slot that involved you to boot the system up, select the game and codes, and when prompted to hot swap the corresponding game to start. The second version as well as the DSi version has an extra slot for the game cartridge and worked just like the previous versions of hacking device. The first two will not work in a DSi or 3DS due to their newer firmware blocking the use of unauthorized and unlicensed devices. The newer version will and features more improved firmware for newer games such as Pokémon Black & White, which the older models could not support. This model to this day is the only one that still has codes being made for it.

An Action Replay was made for Wii (called Wii Action Replay Powersaves), but was disabled after a firmware update preventing its use. A newer Action Replay for the Wii, simply titled "Wii Action Replay", has not yet been disabled, and is unlikely to be disabled due to it being released not too long before the Wii U.
