A Platinum Nintendo GameCube
The Nintendo GameCube (officially abbreviated GCN, NGC in Japan) is Nintendo's sixth-generation console. The console was released on September 14, 2001 in Japan, November 18, 2001 in North America, May 3, 2002 in Europe, and May 17, 2002 in Australia. It is a powerful system, with a compact design, 4 controller ports, a controller with an ergonomic design, small but large-capacity discs, a large game library, connectivity with the Game Boy Advance and a form of online play. In 2006, it was succeeded by Wii, which also features ports for most GameCube hardware as well as compatibility for its software.
The controller for the GCN had a strange design with four main buttons(A,B,X,Y, a control stick, a start/pause button, both an L and R button, a Z button located near the R button, a D-Pad, and a C Stick(which replaced the N64's four C-buttons). Many different versions of the contoller have been released including a miniature version, one with a built-in fan, and a wireless version.
The GCN does not have built in memory. Instead it uses Memory Cards that hold the saved data in a "block" format. You Can move, copy,and delete data from the memrory cards. These memory cards are needed to play GCN games on the Wii console. The memory cards come with different memory capacities and are mainly made by third-party companies.
A special version of the GameCube was released by Panasonic with the ability to play DVDs and audio CDs as well as GameCube games. It was named the Panasonic Q and was only available in Japan.
