More Info on the Nintendo GameCube

While the GameCube didn’t sell quite as well as other Nintendo consoles (i.e. the Wii, NES, and SNES), it is still highly regarded by many as a great system.  In fact, we here are Free Emulator liked it so much that it was the first console where we did emulator YouTube videos of every North American released game using the Dolphin emulator!

GameCube games came on somewhat strange discs called miniDVDs.  These miniDVDs were only 3.15 inches in diameter and only held 1.4GB of data on them.  This small size (both physically and space wise) did not stop many third party companies from releasing games on multiple platforms (PS2, Xbox, and GCN), even  though PS2 and Xbox used standard sized DVDs that were capable of holding up to 4.7GB of data.
