This is incredible, I even think it deserves to be posted here as news.

Written by Emily Rogers from dromble.com this massive post tells the full story of our loved purple (or not) cube!

Thanks for the share, I am still in the middle of reading it.

Though it is a ton of information to read up on about Nintendo
and the birth of the GameCube.

Good read. They were struggling quite a bit. Unfortunately kiddy image was so true, most of my friends owned PS2s and Xboxes. What annoyed me the most they had no idea about anything being released on the cube. It was all crap to them

4 days to find enough time to finish reading the article....

...and the only thing i took out of reading this article is game quality now suffers because the braindead market needs titles that are not too complex or too lenghty

Thank God they chose NOT to use motion control on the GC. Most of the stuff I play on my Wii are either GameCube games, Wii games with GC controller support or Wii homebrew that supports the GC controller.

I also see that Eidos is to blame for third party devs pulling their support. Now I'm glad Square bought them out.

Long live Nintendo. I've loved the GC from the day I played one at Wal-Mart. The original platinum version we have no longer reads discs thanks to my stupid "experiments". I would have tried to eventually get it fixed but it was thrown away by one of my parents. (pretty sure it was my dad)

Now there are three GameCubes in the household. Two purple and one platinum that my dad bought for himself.
