Nintendo GameCube (Black)


Some expansion underway Unlike the Xbox, the GameCube has neither an internal hard drive nor the promise of one in the near future. Instead, you'll need to buy extra memory cards to save your progress in games. No card is included, but it is worth...

Tiny, nearly portable; less expensive than competing systems

No DVD or audio CD support; few online titles

The most affordable of the current game systems, the Nintendo GameCube offers great graphics and good performance but few extras.

Nintendo Game Cube [PAL]


The dust has well and truly settled from the last console war. The Sony Playstation emerged vitorious, beating off the eccentric architecture of Nintendo's N64, and two generations of Sega (one deserving of failiure, one deserving of greatness)....

Product Specifications

The Nintendo GameCube focuses on gameplay and is "the ultimate TV game machine and the first of its kind." Nintendo GameCube was created with the purpose of realizing the highest level of performance and to enhance the productivity of software development. Instead of going for the highest possible performance, which does not contribute to software development, Nintendo decided to create a developer-friendly next generation TV game machine that maintained above-standard capabilities. In order to accomplish this, designers have painstakingly removed the "bottlenecks", which hinder an efficient system. They have introduced 1T-RAM technology, which has a minimum of delays, into the main memory and the Graphics LSI Mixed Memory. Also, secondary cache memory with a large capacity was implemented in the MPU. With this combination Nintendo has succeeded at creating reliable functionality that can be used with actual games. Nintendo has been creating a world in which the player can enjoy the feeling of actually touching the "world" created by the software. In addition, the player can benefit by building a bond with the game and characters in it. The Nintendo GameCube carries on the "DNA" of Nintendo games and gives birth to a new kind of entertainment that surpasses existing concepts of what great gaming is.
