Right so my mate offered me his Gamecube, 2 controls and a memory thing [don't know if they are 'sticks' for the 'cube]

At £25 new what should I be paying for this if i choose to get it?

Also, what other consoles are hot at the moment? [Not the next gen and Wii and stuff, things like Dreamcasts and stuff.]


Tell me what you think I should get [Only getting one] and the reasons why,
for example Gamecube because of Super Smash Bro's and Link.


Cheers. x

Spent a couple hundred pound and get an Xbox 360 Premium or a 360 Elite, they own. Or a Wii. PS3 are getting better, but me as a 360 owner, I have to say 360. If you like shooters, you'll love 360. halo 3, Gears of War, Rainbow Six vegas, GRAW, COD, they all rule. And we have good RPGs like Oblivion and Assasins Creed is coming sometimes.

Dreamcast FTW! The first Soul Calibur, awesome, even though it's the second in the series.....

To be honest I hate XBox in general [Too multiplayer]

Currently on a PS2 and I am looking more into the Retro side, i.e Gamecubes and Dreamcasts.

At least get an Xbox instead of a Gamecube. Xbox has soooo many great games for it, like Halo and Halo 2, Crimson Skies(i luv that game), Oddworld series, and a whole lot of other great games that the GameCube falls no where close to having. I have a GameCube, but i got it for free. Im getting rid of it ASAP for a 360.

My bad, didn't see the no next gen. Well, get on eBay and get yourself a NES or a SNES, damn they owned. Nothing beats owning Mario when I was two. But seriously you'll have so much fun on a NES/SNES now, or a Sega Megadrive or something a like. Also, maybe a N64? (Golden Eeye ftw)

Will give you a tenner for it if you're in England =]

New rule. NO ONE SAY XBOX.

Thanks for the suggestions but I really am XBox racist. I hate them, never played one game I have enjoyed.

you'll get nothing for the gamecube from places like Gamestation or Game, why not just keep a hold of it? it's a great wee console with plenty fantastic games out for it in my opinion

and TS, get the Sega Saturn!

Gamecube and Dreamcast are now retro? Eh? I'm not that old :S

If you want to get a decent old console, I'd suggest a SNES or a Megadrive. At least get an emulator for them. So many awesome classics like Earthbound, Sonic, Mario, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy, Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine etc.

Out of Gamecube/Dreamcast though, I'd choose Dreamcast. I had one in my early/pre-teens when they were first released, being the first console to be online, and it blew my mind. I loved Sonic Adventure, Powerstone, Panzer Dragoon, Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, Chu Chu Rocket, PSO, Soul Calibur, Grandia, Skies of Arcadia, Shenmue and games like that. I have a Gamecube now, with loads of games, and I'd gladly trade it for a Dreamcast.

Does anyone that had a DC remember the VMUs? Those things were kickass, I wish they kicked off more.

****, I need to buy myself a Dreamcast again...

-EDIT- Someone for the love of God buy this. It's a tenner (though expensive P&P), for a LOT of fun:

Man I wish I had £30. It's like one of the demo pods you used to get in shops.
