Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the more frequently asked questions about the Game Cube.  If the answer to your question is not here, click the E-mail me button on the side frame and I'll see if I can answer your question.

Q: Are there any pictures of the Game Cube?
Yes, click here to see them.

 

Q: Will it be more powerful than the Next Generation Playstation?
Nintendo is consistently claiming that Game Cube will exceed the next Playstation's graphic capabilities. Specifications that have been released show clock speeds 33% higher than Playstation 2's chips. Whether or not this will actually translate into more polygons per second and floating point operations per second is not known. Since Nintendo only claims better graphics, it's possible the new Nintendo will be similar in power to the situation between Nintendo 64 and Playstation.

 

Q: Why don't they make it 256-bit and blow the competition away?
We're at a stage in technology where bittage doesn't matter much anymore. Remember, the Pentium II is only 32-bit, and it certainly outperform's Nintendo 64's 64-bit processor. What's important is that the hardware can push a large number of polygons and handle huge amounts of floating-point operations.

 

Q: Will they go with DVD? If so, will they offer DVD playback?
It will use Mini-DVD but I believe that there will also be a DVD based system which can use both Mini-DVD games and also playback full size DVD movies.

 

Q: When is the new machine coming out?
July 2001 in Japan and October 2001 in the US.

 

Q: How much will it cost?
Nintendo says the machine will be very affordable (at least the same cost as or less than Playstation 2). By teaming up with IBM to produce Dolphin's CPU, this goal looks very attainable.
