Ill get one, always had Nintendo's, if they can produce more games like Mario 64, a wicked mario kart, zelda etc then it could do really well, the gamecube has been a dissapointment but I still thinknintendo produce the best games

Nintendo confirmed several months ago that it would be under $250, so $230 sounds bang on, and it absolutely has to be released before Thanksgiving in the US (23rd November), by a week, minimum.

So, $230 and 13th November for the US.



If that is the case then $230 = 122 at current exchange rates.

Going on past experience, round up to account for currency fluctuations, add a 10% premium and then VAT and the UK price should be around 170.

169.99, put your granny on it.
24th November would be a sensible date for a European launch.

149 sounds very reasonable and I might actually get one.. I wouldnt consider it if it was higher.

What are some of the games? I dont much like football but Goldeneye, Mario Kart, 1080 snowboarding were killer on the N64.
The controller is the selling point mate! Basically uses some sort of technology to work that hasm otion sensors. I think in the morning I will be better prepped to tell you about this.

Zelda is going to be out on the GC too (not that that's going to stop me getting a Wii!).

Details can be found To view the link you have to Register or Login - looks amazing! I think it'll take me a while to get used to it, but after that, I can see how I'll find it hard to imagine using anything else.

I cant make up my mind about the controller, one one hand I think it will be great for shoot em ups, but at other times when it slate or whatever I dont really want to be swinging the controller about, too energetic

I did think the same but it is apparent that their will be other ways as well rather than just swinging. And you can plug the gamecube controller in as well.

Remember it is backwards compatitable so all GC games will be available (and you can pick some classics up for dirt cheap) and they are putting 100's of downloads of old classic games as well for some retro fun.

Yep. It really has covered all basis. all it is missing is the graphics but as I have debated many times on here that is one of the least important things when the game play and innovations are so amazing.

I agree. And using all the different movements is awseome.

Their is also an attachment to make it look like a gun for FPS's. As I said as soon as they go on preorder I will be getting one.

The GameCube controllers are also going to be compatible with the Wii, so you don't always have to use the new one - the Wavebird will be at least, so I assume the ordinary cabled version will be too.
