    Im getting the GameCube today and Im not sure

    which color to get. I was originaly thinking

    Jet Black, but since Im getting XBOX this christmas

    and Playstation 2 next year. I think it would be

    nice for something different. So maybe I should

    get the Indigo version. I'll probally just get

    Jet Black. Im posting this anyways for suggestions.

    Anyways what do you think.

    Purple! You know it makes sense!

    I think it looks really nice; why should a console have to be black? Still, the iMac-style see-through turquoise N64s are possibly a bit too much...

    I think the black ones look rather dull. I'll probably get purple myself, but if they release one in the meantime that matches my ice-blue translucent GBA I'm all over it.

    I have a purple one as well and I agree that the color is really fitting for the console. I don't know why really. Would I like a purple DVD player? Or how about a purple receiver? Probably not. However, a purple GameCube looks absolutely fine and surprisingly sharp.

    Whatever you decide to get, the important thing to remember is that you'll be able to play the same games either way.

    Indigo (which I have) is lovely, I also really like the Spice Orange one.

    I have a black and it makes it look badass.

    If you're sticking it in a HT, go with black. If you could care less, go with whatever there is. If you want something different, go with indigo.

    You could get black and make it match the PS2 and X-Box...

    black matches all my other components. I remember how out of place my dreamcast looked in that sea of black..

    The purple one will give you great big hugs whenever you want.

    HAHAHA how can a different colour gamecube load games faster? They all load the same time.

    Prior to my MDD tower I had a Blueberry iMac Rev E (slot loading). I loved that machine, but it suffered an unfortunate accident. Last summer, I had the A/C blasting. I woke up one morning freezing so I turned the A/C off and opened up my bedroom door. All of the heat from hallway came in and condensation ruined the iMac. I was stuck using a PC for the few months in between the death of my iMac and the purchase of my G4 tower.
