The Nintendo GameCube focuses on gameplay and is "the ultimate TV game machine and the first of its kind." 

The Nintendo GameCube (ニンテンドーゲームキューブ Nintendō Gēmukyūbu), officially abbreviated as NGC in Japan and GCN in other regions, is Nintendo's fourth home video game console and was part of the sixth generation console era. It was the successor to the Nintendo 64 and predecessor to the Wii.The Nintendo GameCube was the first Nintendo console to use optical discs as its primary storage medium, after several aborted projects from Nintendo and its partners to utilize optical-based storage media. In contrast with the GameCube's contemporary competitors, the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, the GameCube uses miniDVD-based discs instead of full-size DVDs. Partially as a result of this, it does not have the DVD-Video playback functionality of these systems, nor the audio CD playback ability of other consoles that use full-size optical discs.In addition, the GameCube introduced a variety of connectivity options to Nintendo consoles, and was the fourth Nintendo console, after the Nintendo 64DDFamicom Modem and Satellaview, to support online play officially, via the Nintendo GameCube Broadband Adapter and Modem Adapter (sold separately). It also enabled connectivity to the Game Boy Advance to access exclusive features of certain games or to use the portable system as a controller for the Game Boy Player.

Nintendo GameCube was created with the purpose of realizing the highest level of performance and to enhance the productivity of software development. Instead of going for the highest possible performance, which does not contribute to software development, Nintendo decided to create a developer-friendly next generation TV game machine that maintained above-standard capabilities. In order to accomplish this, designers have painstakingly removed the "bottlenecks", which hinder an efficient system. They have introduced 1T-RAM technology, which has a minimum of delays, into the main memory and the Graphics LSI Mixed Memory. Also, secondary cache memory with a large capacity was implemented in the MPU. With this combination Nintendo has succeeded at creating reliable functionality that can be used with actual games.Nintendo has been creating a world in which the player can enjoy the feeling of actually touching the "world" created by the software. In addition, the player can benefit by building a bond with the game and characters in it. The Nintendo GameCube carries on the "DNA" of Nintendo games and gives birth to a new kind of entertainment that surpasses existing concepts of what great gaming is.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Game Cube
Product Information
Nintendo's thematic action-adventure sequel to Ocarina of Time takes the series back to its more cartoonish roots. Utilizing a completely new look with cel-shaded graphics, the game casts players in the role of a familiar young boy, who sets out to save his kidnapped sister. Gameplay is vintage Zelda, only that the game's overworld is covered by water. Players have to control the direction of the wind to sail across the ocean and find dungeons, towns, and plenty of secrets. A special Game Boy Advance link-up option lets another player join the quest and give hints and assistance via the handheld.
