  The Nintendo GameCube (GCN) is the fourth home video game console released by Nintendo.


The GameCube was launched in Japan on September 15, 2001, in North America on November 18, 2001, in Europe on May 3, 2002, and in Australia on May 17, 2002. It was the successor to the Nintendo 64. The GameCube competed with Sony's PlayStation 2 and Microsoft's Xbox, and to a smaller scale, Sega's Dreamcast.

The GameCube was succeeded by the Wii in 2006, and discontinued in 2007.

On Game GrumpsEdit

The Game Grumps seem to prefer the GameCube over any other sixth-generation console; they have only played a few games for the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2. Despite this, few series exceeded three episodes while Jon was still a part of the channel. Since Danny joined the channel, some GameCube games were played for somewhat longer series, such as Super Mario Sunshine, Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic Adventure DX, Super Monkey Ball, and Ribbit King. The GameCube's Game Boy Player is used by the Grumps to play and record Game Boy Advance games. Mario Kart Double Dash!! holds the distinction of being the only GameCube game (as well as one of two non-PC games, the other being Super Smash Bros.) to be featured on Steam Train, albeit as part of the St. Patrick's Day spin-off Stout Train.
