News on the GameCube’s demise had gone back and forth with no less than Perrin Kaplin, Nintendo of America VP of marketing,
saying that production of the ‘Cube had ceased. But that statement has been overruled by
an official statement from Nintedo: “We are continuing to manufacture and sell Nintendo GameCube, which is an ideal entry-level value system and has a strong library of games.”
So if you’re looking to pick yourself up a nice game system on the cheap, you could do worse than Nintendo’s “last-gen” console.
