Gamecube Hacked Already -According to a number of sources, Nintendo's new console "GameCube" has already been hacked in Hong Kong and is able to play pirated games. If true, this will be one of the fastest hacks for a new console and a serious blow to Nintendo. -An add-on is required to play pirated games due to the physical size of the GameCube CD Drive being too small to accommodate normal CDs. The add-on is simply plugged into the GameCube's expansion port and has its own DVD/CD drive built in. -Similar add-ons were manufactured for the N64 and SNES in Hong Kong and became widely available claiming the devices were for "back-up purposes only". It remains to be seen how hard this will hit Nintendo after the overall failure of the N64.
