what

the

fucking

hell

are

you saying?????

god damn that pisses me off! I'm on a game console forum and EVERYONE that doesn't know nintendo very well has the same opinion.

I own a game boy advance with RAYMAN. oooooh rayman hahahaha you big baby!! LIKE NOT!! If there are ANY games that are fucking hard to finish it's rayman, or mario, or ZELDA, any of those would do! So don't say nintendo is dead, 'cos they ain't, da gamecube will rock the world!!!

(btw I also read an article about sony saying their own console is crap, and bill gates spitting on his X-box)

Well sony, have planed PS3 and PS4 already.
Microsoft is really trying to push the X-Box, but the Jap's don't like it (Which is a shame, because it much better value then the PS2)

The N64 was a vectim of under-marketing.
The PS2 is a victim of over-marketing.
The N64 was technicaly supiour, but arrived later.
The PS2 is technicaly inforour (GC,XBox), but arrived earlier.
The N64 has very little thrid party support
The PS2 has lods (although almost no "exculisive" brands, even Square has signed-up to be a GC developer)
--
Only problem the N64 had that the PS2 had is development costs.
The N64 was hard to develope for, mainly due to its weird "Vector" processor arrangment.
The PS2 is having simerlar problems, its supposed to do X million polygons a second, but the developers have so far only managed 0.00X.
The GC and Xbox on the other hand are EXTREAMLY easy to make games for.
Some developers esimate the cost of GC production to be 1/2 of PS2 games. (Xbox even less [because microsoft are paying them ])

DarkFlame: the GC has a fan in it.

(so what? - well, earlier in a X-box vs GC thread DF told the GC didn't need a fan...)

If already seen inside, I think about 90% of it is heatsink
--
That aint a fan (unlikely), or its an old pic, or they changed it at the last minute before it was released.
If it is a fan then it must be very silent, because all the testers at the Spaceworld show said they couldn't here anything. (unlike the PS2/Xbox).
The NGC is still the only console to use Copper chips.

Oh and MAJOR score for nintendo:
