Goodbye Gamecube *tear*
We knew it was going to happen sooner or later, but now Nintendo has officially stopped production of the Gamecube.
Are we producing any more GameCubes? No. But do we have the inventory there for people to still purchase? Yes.
– Perrin Kaplan
UPDATE: A spokesperson for Nintendo UK today spoke with Eurogamer, stating “I can confirm that globally, Nintendo is still continuing production of GameCube hardware and GameCube software,” thus contradicting Kaplan’s previous statement.
The Gamecube provided lots of good times for the last 5 years, and I will miss it. Good thing I can still play all the hits on the Wii for cheap.
So long Gamecube—thanks for Wind Waker, Metroid Prime, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and other great titles.
