    GC: Sweet-Looking GameCube that plays DVDs

    Hey guys,

    I mentioned in my intro last week that I am a big Nintendo fan but never ended up getting a GameCube as I was not actively gaming during high school and the beginning of university. I thought about picking up a Japanese GC so that I could play import games, and I as I was looking around trying to find a cheap one, I happened across something you might find interesting.

    Did you know that Panasonic came out with a Panasonic-branded combination GameCube/DVD Player back in 2002? I think it's pretty sweet-looking (and useful if you need to play region 2 DVDs), and even my fiance, who is not much of a gamer, agreed.

    Check out the attached pics for details. One of these can be had for between $100-$300 at various internet auction sites. I actually placed a bid for one but the bidding exceeded $200 which is more than I am willing to pay. What do you think of the looks of it? It's a little disappointing that the Nintendo logo doesn't appear on the controller, but I think it looks pretty sweet.

    It's in Japanese, but if you think I'm faking it , check out the product's official page below (on Panasonic's website).

    Maybe I misunderstood your comment

    So I guess you're saying that the GC should have looked like that in the first place ...I wasn't thinking straight so for some reason I thought you were suggesting that I add the text "GC" to the beginning of my post ...oh well!

    It's would make sense though, because all the other systems at that time had built in dvd players. Like the others said though, its a shame it never came over here.
