The Nintendo GameCube is a console system developed by Nintendo, and released late in the year of 2001. The GameCube's preproduction codename name was "Project Dolphin" and was originally a console that used cartridges, as noted references appear in games such as Super Mario Sunshine.The GameCube has room for two memory cards and four controllers. It has three buttons on top: Open, Reset, and Power. It has two serial ports and one hi-speed port on the bottom.

The Nintendo GameCube uses game discs that are the size of an MP3 disc. Also, when compared to the Nintendo 64 game cartridges, GameCube game discs can hold more memory; up to 1.35 GB (1,459,978,240 bytes).

There are four main colors to the Nintendo GameCube: Indigo, Black, Orange, and Silver. Indigo is the original color seen in advertisements, the trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and other places. Silver was released after the first three colors. Orange was not available in the U.S., but controllers matching its color were.

Many popular Mario games were made for this system, including: Super Mario Sunshine, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Superstar Baseball and Luigi's Mansion.

An add-on accessory for the Nintendo GameCube known as the Game Boy Player was released in 2003. The Game Boy Player allowed people to play Game Boy Advance titles on their television screen through their GameCube.

The GameCube was discontinued in 2009 due to the leaving of Hiroshi Yamauchi. It sold about 22 million units during its lifetime.

The original version of the Wii is mostly compatible with GameCube hardware and software. The Wii has 4 GameCube controller ports and 2 GameCube memory card slots which support all controllers, like the dance mat and microphone. The LAN adapter and Game Boy Player are not supported. The Wii Family Edition and Wii Mini have no support for GameCube hardware and software. The Wii U is not compatible with any GameCube games, but Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is compatible with GameCube controllers through a special adapter.
