"A fun machine, but just can't compete."3.0 starson by jgzeidan
Pros: Portable-esqe design; multiple colors; quality games; easy to use interface; cheaper than competing systems.
Cons: Disc format is inferior; no online play; no multimedia features; lack of game releases; not marketed efficiently; has a younger demographic, which can alienate older gamers; doesn't compete sales-wise
Summary: The gamecube offers the familiar fun factor one will come to expect from Nintendo. However, the fun factor is limited, since it's game lineup isn't spectacular. And it's lack of online play, a growing craze, and multimedia playback, now seemingly an industry standard, puts the gamecube at a disadvantage in technological capability. Plus, sales charts show that the Gamecube is not selling very well, primarily because of it's image of appealing soley to a younger age demographic. Overall, it's lack of features is disappointing, but for anybody looking for a good time, and is a little short on cash, the gamecube should be looked into, but don't expect a masterpiece.
