    I have PS2 (with about 25 games) and Xbox with 2. My wife loves to say "I told you so" about the Xbox, even though I dont agree with her and I still have faith in Xbox.

    Anyway, this new batch of games coming out for Gamecube has me more impressed than I initially was with Xbox, making me now want one. I really want Mario, Metriod, Zelda, and Resident Evil. My birthday is coming up in September, and I think it would make a really great gift.

    But, how do I convince my wife of that??

    Get the Gamecube, two wavebird controllers, SuperSmash Brothers Melee and Super Monkey Ball. Then make her play with you.
    My fiancee got my a Gamecube for Christmas last year. We've played those two games to death.
    I just beat her longstanding high score of 1000 in MonkeyTarget over the weekend. Go me! [​IMG]

    This falls slightly outside of the date range you're interested in, but supposedly Nintendo is going to bundle a GameCube, Mario Sunshine, a controller, and a Mem 59 card for $189.95 in mid-October.

    You said yourself that you want one. That's justification enough.

    Morgan, if only that were enough....:b

    After checking the release dates for some games, Im thinking that a better idea is for me to get one for xmas, this way I can hopefully get a few games thrown in the mix too (if I get one now for my bday, a bunch of other games and xmas will throw a wrench in any plans I had of getting any cube games.)

    xmas it is then. I better start spreading the word now, so everyone can go in together and get me the whole 9!!

    woohoo!!

    Thanks everyone!

    I just bought a 251 memory card and noticed that the price difference between the 59 and 251 is only $5 at the local Wal-Mart. If (and when) you get your GameCube, DEFINITELY grab one.

    Whats the deal with the Silver Gamecube? This is the first I've heard about it. Can anyone post any links or pictures?
    I don't plan on upgrading to change the color, but it sounds intruging. Maybe I'll get one for my mother in law. She's been a good girl this year [​IMG]

    its not necessarily the approval for the 150.00, its the approval for 150.00 like every other weekend. im what some may call a "Spend-aholic". hehe

    by the way, I believe its going to be called a "Platinum" gamecube, and ebworld.com has "Artist rendering" of one with a controller.

    You could just buy a GameCube and then get it painted. There is a company that does it for you.
