    though it wasnt the most popular in the states, i really liked the GC...and with Zelda (getting ported to the Wii) and Super Paper Mario moving to the Wii, it was inevitable...it was the system that i had the most games for.

    as for the 360 hits...Table Tennis....damn, that actually did good.

    Eh who cares about the NGC? The Wii is completely backwards compatible so I'm not concerned....

    Yeah. at least one new title I know of (but can't remember the name) has a "Wii Compatable" notice on the cover. how odd is that?

    I was going to trade in my Gamecube, but due to the Wii's full backwards compatibility the trade-in value for it is abysmal. $20 for the system.

    I love my Gamecube and I still think the controller is one of the best ones out there. The only thing it lacked was an extra button and analog stick buttons (I.E. PS2 L3 and R3). Many games weren't ported over because of it's "basic" controller and I fear the same fate for the Wii.

    Yep. It should've done much much better than it did.

    True, but what about some people who want the Gameboy Player for their Gamecube? That ain't compatible with the Wii.

    As for the Gamecube officially ending, well, it's inevitable. But I'm keeping my Gamecube as a reminder of how great Nintendo was with that system.

    Perfect system for the kiddies. Plus it's still selling well enough for them to manufacture, I assume.

    Then you already have both since the Gameboy Player is hardly in production either... Or buy both used for a paltry sum....

    Seriously this hardly big or significant news...

    So far this year, only Final Fantasy VI Advance pops up on my radar. :O Although last year there were some things, like Yggdra Union, the Summon Night games, the Super Robot Taisen games...

    RiP Gamecube, the only console Nintendo has done since the SNES that isn't a POS(yes, the N64 and Wii are both POS IMO)

    They seem to be more popular too.
    Only in the way a Pentium is basically a 386. I wish people would quit saying Wii=Gamecube, because it's incredibly misleading.

    It annoys me too. Just because of the graphics, the Wii has the stigma of being considered "just a Gamecube." There's so much more to it than that, not that the graphics won't get better from here. And what's so bad about the Gamecube? >.>
