Guys, check this thread out over at the IGN message boards:
http://boards.ign.co....01&replies=151


Some guy with an import has been posting pics of his GC compared to various everyday items. It's a great little thread and gives you a good sense of the size of the thing. Make sure to look at all the pages of the thread since he posted different pictures several times throughout.

WOW.

Talk about ultra-tiny! Definately a road trip-worthy system. Posted Image I can't believe the game discs are even smaller than floppy disks.

One comment about his "backyard" picture... I would never want to bring my Gamegube even close to a yard with that poor upkeep! Posted Image Maybe he should've put it on his front door step instead...

The GCN also has that handle on it because Nintendo wanted to give it that "so small you can take it anywhere" feel. Has anyone else seen the boxes that it comes in? TINY!

Thanks for the link, Aaron!

I think I'm actually becoming physically attracted to this thing. After all, I like them petite and... indigo? Posted Image

Keep in mind that America gets indigo, black, and orange for the launch.

Where on earth did you hear that orange would be available at launch?? So far I've only heard that orange GameCubes would be available at a later date in North America...

Cheers.

I like tall and black.

We're still talking about game consoles right?

I remember reading that orange and black will be available for the American launch and then soon after will be available in Japan. Black I'm sure of, and I'm pretty sure I read that "spice" would be out.

Jet Black and Indigo are the two launch colors.

I'm sure we'll eventually see a Spice-colored Gamecube, probably sometime next year, but it won't be at launch.

There is a Spice-colored controller due out at launch, though. . .

I don't about the rest of you...but who really wants a gaudy orange "cube" in their entertainment center? I sure don't. I'll be sticking with black.

Aaron-

I agree. Orange is a strange color, but some people will go for it.

You're right, it was the controller and not the console itself that would launch in orange. The console comes out in orange in Japan in November, so it will probably be here around Christmas.

If you can't get black or indigo, people will go for orange and then just trade it with someone who has black or indigo.

I've seen a real gamecube, not in action, but i've seen the actual one at an import game shop...

the thing is tiny!!! Its like 5x5x5 inches! The width is almost as wide as a normal sized CD... or if you glued 6 CDs together to form a cube... it looks real nice...

Actually, its dimensions are closer to 4x4x6, and you can probably find the exact dimensions somewhere.

The controller is around the size of the console's width, which is smaller than the width of a GBA I think.
