This System has many advantages over the other systems. It has an extremely small footprint, thus it saves an extreme amount of space compared to contemporary consoles of its time.The controllers are extremely durable. Thousand of hours of game play and it still works wonderful. The games that were released for this system are more family oriented. If your into violence in your video games then the Gamecube is not your cup of tea. If your into quality game play,( which is the purpose of videogaming anyway), then you hit your mark. The Gamecubes version of Resident Evil 4 is probably the best port of the series. Its a quality product, and this is why I stock so many of the Gamecubes. I just love it and I know you will also be pleased if your purchased a system. Brand new and never used.
