Nintendo has stopped according to Perrin Kaplan (Vice President, Marketing & Corporate Affairs, Nintendo of America) in a recent interview with GameDaily. “Are we producing any more GameCubes? No”.
It’s a sad day for those who supported it. Gamecube was my first console of last-gen. I loved it so much, and find myself replaying some Cube games on the Wii. That could be a reason as to why this happened. Gamecube compatibility on Wii.
We’ll miss you purple lunchbox. I still have a lot of games I need to play on you though…
UPDATE: It looks like Perrin is wrong. Eurogamer has the story:
“I can confirm that globally, Nintendo is still continuing production of GameCube hardware and GameCube software,” a spokesperson for Nintendo UK told us.”
So, back to the lunchroom I guess!
