    Yeah it is a beast since it is probably pretty rare outside of Japan.
    Also I like the logo better than the normal gcn one

    isn't there pictures from the back? i wanted to see how the connections looked like
    also, it has inbuilt component converter? (the normal gamecubes require a cable with a converter inside them)

    i gave a like to this post, because there is no hate button.
    such butthurt :'(

    anywho, is the dvd and the game output diferent? because here is that gamecube video out, with the game in parenthesis, and there is a yellow rca\s video on the side
    you will have to switch the channel on the tv\input to use the dvd function or gamecube?

    One thing being more outlandishly priced than another doesn't justify the price of either.

    I know but at least the Panasonic cube is rare outside of Japan and has some collector value while the ps4 is just a normal 400 dollar ps4 with a once was free game removed by the company for be reasons

    well. you know the saying, the price is whatever someone is going to pay for it.
    even if they got a price tag of 1000, doesn't mean someone will purchase them, and if they do, its their own problem and regret after some years when that demo doesn't worth a dime. (cuz you know, you can dawnload and pley with cfw)

    I saw one of these in person on display in a game store in Singapore when I was on vacation one year.
    It looked pretty and I wanted it.
    Still, nothing really sets this apart from other gamecubes as far as playing games go. One could argue this is what the GC should have been and I agree with that. DVD support and a subjectively slightly prettier design is nice. (although somewhat cheaper looking due to how the chassis is stitched together and personally I don't like the bulge)

    The original GC was solid as a rock, even though it was made of plastic. And the games work just the same, so I really don't see any advantage to having this compared to a regular GC.

    Added to my watch list, however. I will see how this turns out :)
    If it sells at a low enough price maybe I'll pick it up.

    How big is that thing? If it wasn't for the referential remote control and gamecube controller, I would've thought it was the size of a vacuum cleaner.

    Other than that...I honestly have to give this a slow clap. Bravo: it's what the gamecube should have been but wasn't. Right now, it has "FOR FANS ONLY!" slapped all over the cover, as the die-hard nintendo fanboys probably have no way to play DVD's...or music CD's (I assume that's that 3rd option of this 3-in-1? :unsure: ).

    For everyone else...I don't see much point in buying a 3-in-1 device if the price for the 3 devices by themselves adds up to a cheaper total.
