Nintendo GameCube Consoles
The Nintendo GameCube was the successor to Nintendo’s highly popular N64 console and was released in Europe May 2002, making it all the way to 2007 before manufacturing was stopped.
It was the first Nintendo console to make the move away from the traditional cartridge based games and instead used discs. These discs however were not the regular CD/DVD size and instead were more closely related to the miniDVD format and at the time were very distinctive compared to the rivalling Sony PlayStation 2 and Microsoft Xbox.
The GameCube console was described by many as one of the greatest consoles of its time, filled with features that enhanced even the best of retro games. It came with the ability to allow online gaming with selected titles through the use of a broadband or modem adapter and was even compatible with Nintendo’s handheld Game Boy Advance (GBA) when connected with a link cable. Game developers were quick to get in on the act and take advantage of this by offering bonus content when using the GBA as an extra controller and mirror screen.
The console shipped a respectable figure of almost 22 million units which is even more impressive considering the enormous popularity of its competition. Thanks to the GameCube’s great collection of retro gaming titles such as Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pokemon Colosseum and of course the return of the Super Mario franchise, many people worldwide instantly fell for the charm that the smaller, alternative console delivered.
