What are you waiting for? I've had great success with their refurbished stuff in the past, and, for this price, it's worth a shot.

If you're waiting for the same reason as me, it's payday. But seriously - someone buy one and trade it to me.

I've been playing my Gamecube lately. Great console. Metroid Prime 2, currently.

I've been looking every day for my Melee disk and can't find it. I even found the box, but with no disk inside. What? I always put the disk back.

So I went on eBay thinking I could just buy a replacement for a reasonable price since it's an older game, but no. That game is selling like it's fresh off the shelf. Shit. I just want some Smash Bros with my girlfriend ;_;

Mine is the black cube.

I bought a Gamecube for a dollar this weekend at a random yard sale.

I didn't really need the fourth Gamecube. Yeah I did. Just good sense to back up your backups.

I have a GameCube in my closet that doesn't have a power cable or AV cable, so I think this would be cheaper than buying the cables I need.

Not natively. If you get a freeloader disc or a mod chip, you'll need to separate your memory cards by region too.

I routinely run into gamecubes at goodwills with multiple controllers for $20. The controller is worth that alone now.

Years ago, their refurbished GameCubes were literally new units directly from Nintendo. With their Xenoblade/Metroid Prime Trilogy thing...maybe is the same this time.

That, plus you also don't need to get a Wii remote just to start up a game! I really wish that you could control the Wii menus with a GameCube controller. You can do it with a Classic Controller, but not a GameCube controller. :/

I think I still have a Japanese Platinum GameCube that is modified to play NTSC games as well as NTSC-J. Only the Japanese consoles could be modified in such a manner. It has a switch in the back that allows you to select U.S. or Japanese games.

It was great, got it along with a Japanese copy of Wind Waker. Beat the game in three days without knowing a sliver of Japanese. So good.

Are the component cables still like $150? Also, is there an easy way to tell if a system has the digital out, other than looking at the back of course. Just wondering as I am hoping to score one off kijiji but I want to make sure I get one that will support the component cables.
