Now, I know this hasn't really happened yet, but usually on a general game board it can happen. The inevitable Console Wars. Fanboys will claim that one system is superior to another, and then a fanboy of a different console disagrees, and what usually ensues is a flame war. I don't have a problem about you guys just arguing over which one you think is better as long as flames don't start flying. If you do want to argue about consoles, please do it in a nicer, friendlier way. With this in mind, we can make the board a HAPPY PLACE! Yay.

some reasins gamecube is better than all the rest
(dont worry, theres an exbox section to)

More Comfortable controller

BASICALLY PORTABLE

games with awsome characters! (mario, donkey kong, samus etc.)

Cheaper (sure it doens't include a dvd player, but my family got one FREE from this contest!)

Better 2003(q4)-2004 launch lineup

Extra features including gameboy cables!

gameboy player

Recieve a FREE game and FREE demo disc when bought

Cordless controller!



Some reasons x-box is better than all the rest:

built in hard drive

halo

good graphics (not that gamecube doens't have them)

FINALLY a smaller controler

x-box live

dvd player

music player

Reasons that Patrick is wrong.

1.  Its not portable, because you still have to plaug it into a wall.  Any of the consoles can be unplugged and relocated easily, so GameCube doesn't have anything special there.
2.  Every system has it's awesome characters.  PS2 has Solid Snake, Xbox has Master Chief.
3.  Gamecube costs $150, Xbox and PS2 cost $180.  The added hard drive and built in networking are worth the extra $30 for an Xbox.
4.  GameCube barely even has a lineup for 2003-2004.  Now that Zelda and Metroid are out, theres basically nothing left.  Xbox on hte other hand, has Halo 2, Fable, Splinter Cell 2, Half Life 2, Counter-Strike, etc.
5.  Why would anyone want to play Gameboy on thier TV.  The idea of it is portability.  There are much better games to be played on consoles instead if your at a TV.
6.  The free game and demo disc deals were during the last holiday season.  They aren't around anymore.
7.  The cordless controller part is true.  I'm still wating for Microsoft to make one.

I'm just anti-microsoft. My only reason for getting an X-Box would be doing something i'm not supposed to with it.. :mf_type:

oh, Cmonkey, u r wrong about some parts and I, am wrong about some parts.

a) Actually, it's small, so if ur bringing it over to a friends house if ur walking or biking or something, just store it in a backpack.

b)there is a metal gear solid game for gamecubr coming out thats called metal gear solid:twin snakes

c)u were right, but if u save it on the hard drive, it slows the load times, and gamecube still has the fastest load times, actually, it doesn't have one

d) U r wrong, first of all, gamecube has splinter cell, with extra features 2)Gamecube has an awesome lineup: Final fantasy:crystal chronicles, F-zero, Kirbys air ride, Mario kart:Double dash, mario golf:toadstoal tour, viewtiful joe, metal gear solid:the twin snakes, Wario world, bily hatcher and the giant egg, soul caliber 2, metroid prime 2 (tentative title), wario world, Sonic adventure dx, Phantasy star online episode 3, pikmin 2, animal crossing 2 and way, way more!

e)Gameboy player has the same features as gba sp, IT"S WAY BRIGHTER, bigger, and better

f)it is going on for a while on now because a friend of mine bought a gamecube a couple days ago and they got a free game

Shall i say more? :closedeyes:

1.  I've brought my xbox over to friend's houses dozens of times.  I can easily fit an Xbox, 4 controllers, and all my games in one small backpack.
2.  There's also a Metal Gear Solid game for Xbox, MGS2: Substance.
3.  I don't know where you thought up this one, but its insanely wrong.  A hard drive speeds up load times by far.  Have you ever played Halo?  It loads the entire level onto the hard drive at the beginning.  You can then play through a huge 2 hour long level without having to load again.  It's only possible on Xbox... and PC.  Last time I checked, Gamecube load times were slower, because the optical disks are slower than DVDs.
4.  Every Title you mentioned there is either on Xbox or is not even close to as good as the games that I mentioned.
5.  The idea of SP is portability, not being "bigger"  In fact, it is smaller because of the clamshell design.
6.  It must have been a special at that store then, because the official Nintendo offer ended a few months ago.
Go ahead and say more, Falco is right, it's useless.

Well, lets see, Zelda IS really easy. But Skies of arcadia legends, GREAT GAME very long. Also Nba street 2 is very good as well. Also, my main goal is to get 100%in metroid prime (very difficult). And Cmonkey, what ru playing now?
Im also playing my gba, very good system!
