TalkBack / RE:Washington Post Says GameCube is

I found a link at the bottom that said "Contact us" so I did, sent them this:

this is in reference to the following article

which was about game consuls for the holidays. The author makes a comment that the Nintendo GameCube is obsolete. I would like to counter that argument.

First, the GameCube has better graphics than the PS2. With integration with periphials such as the GameBoy Advance, the new Bongo controlers and Wavebird, the only first-party wireless controller, the GameCube offers a wider variety of game play than any of the other systems.

The PS2 and XBox are basically clones of each other. There is very little reason to have both. The GameCube offers several exclusive titles such as Zelda, Metroid and the Mario games, that are not only great games now, but come from a gaming legacy that both young and older gamers can appreciate.

As for the diminishing titles comment, do not mistake quality for quantity. Metroid Prime 2 Echoes, Tales of Symphonia, Resident Evil 4, new Zelda and Mario games on the horizion, all exclusive to the GameCube, the amount of quality games for the Cube has and is only going up.

From a purely finacial standpoint, for $99 a buyer can get a GameCube, two controllers and Mario Kart, a deal that none of the other consuls can beat.
