Item Description

Though it looks like a toy and comes at a relatively low price, don't be fooled: Nintendo's GameCube is a powerful video game console that rightly deserves its place among the other next-generation game systems. The GameCube doesn't try to play your CD collection, run your movies, or read your e-mail. The company has concentrated its efforts on games, and the titles are uniformly smooth, with bright, fast graphics and great sound. The console is optimised to push speed up while pushing costs down, hence its position at the lower end of the price spectrum. The GameCube is the first Nintendo video game system to use a disc-based media--in this case proprietary 3-inch, 1GB discs--rather than cartridges for its games, which means lower game development costs, ie: lower prices for consumers and a higher likelihood of new game ideas. The controllers (one is included) are ergonomically designed and comfy to use even for long periods; there's a built-in rumble feature and two analog control sticks complement an intuitive series of face and shoulder buttons. The system comes with four built-in controller ports, a built-in carry-handle, and two memory card slots--plus there's the capacity for future expansion into the world of online gaming. Of course, the main advantage of the GameCube is that it's the homefield of one of the world's premier game designers--Nintendo

If you are familiar with GameCube Console - Purple/Indigo, why not let others know?

Please note that opinions expressed in any review are those of our customers and do not necessarily match those of the Playasia.com team.

Comments: This is the revised version of the initial released console. The Digital Output is missing, so it cannot support progressive scan anymore. Also notice that the package box is different from the initial released, as they look more compact now. However the box provide very little protection now as it no longer a cube shaped box. Handle with care when transporting the console using this box. The package comes with the console itself, one controller, one power adaptor, instruction booklet but AV cable is not included. The console menu is only in Japanese.

A steal for console collectors!
First of all I want to say a thank you to PlayAsia. It is practically impossible to get a brand new piece of the gamecube and the ones that are available are unreasonably priced. I collect consoles and actually have a secondhand gamecube, but I just fell in love with the new one on PlayAsia. I ordered the gamecube and receive the console in 2 days flat, PlayAsia + FedEx = Awesome Combination!
