Thanks for the Round-Up Mav. Cheers

I will probley rent F Zero and Mario Kart, cause i can afford to run the xbox too. But it wont get much use as its just sitting there at the moment. Ive kept all my consoles previous, but this time i might as well sell and put money towards the Xbox.

Skies of Arcadia: Legends is a fantastic RPG to complement Zelda, and Lost Kingdoms 1 & 2 are solid games. All three are 'Cube exclusives. There are also three new Zelda games coming out for GameCube next year; Tetra's Trackers, Four Swords and a brand new adventure. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and Tales of Symphonia are also looking like excellent RPGs.

> SSX Tricky

1080: Avalanche has more of an SSX look this time round, with impressive interactive environments and a fluid trick system. Amped and Amped 2 are the choices on Xbox, but they're more realistic simulations, so you've got to decide which style you prefer. As you probably know, 1080 games have always been a bit of both SSX 3 is also coming out, but that's multiformat anyway.

> Madden
> BMX XXX

Don't know about these - all major sports games will be multiformat really, except for the few exclusives; you can import the Winning Eleven series from Japan on the GameCube - the best football games made.

> Tony Hawks 3/4
> Agressive Inline

Again, these types of games will always be multiformat so you can expect to see other titles in the genre/series on GameCube, Xbox, PS2, GBA and PC alike.

Perhaps you might want to stick it out for a bit and give those a try - Mario Kart is excellent fun without fail, so you really ought to give it a rent and see how it fares. F-Zero GX is being hailed as the fastest game ever, surely that deserves a chance? Rebel Strike will have MUCH deeper gameplay than it's predecessor, in terms of tactics and variation.

Have you tried the other Nintendo games aswell? Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pikmin, Animal Crossing and the rest are all great. It's up to you; if you are REALLY into console FPS and realistic racers, then I expect the Xbox is for you - but give your GameCube a proper chance (perhaps don't sell it straight away when you get the Xbox), and maybe pick up a magazine or something. It's best to be sure.

Zelda
SSX Tricky
Madden
BMX XXX
Tony Hawks 3/4
Agressive Inline


Most of them are Multi Format anyway.

Im not a massive Ninty Fan, thats why im not really interested in Mario Kart, F Zero X, Rogue Leader, 1080 (i still have first one on n64). I got my GC soley because it was cheapest console at the time which had Tony Hawk
and Madden.

If people sell their Cubes they're gonna miss out on a good looking selection of upcoming titles in the next few months. Mario Kart, 1080, Rogue Leader 3, F-Zero, Viewtiful Joe, etc.

Right, Why people are selling their Gamecubes I don't know. What do you get? 80. You may aswell keep it for that price. You can buy two extra games for the money that'll last you less than a month. O so pointless. Keep it, I have mine for the Gamecube exclusives because to put it simply, they have the best exclusive's.

Ok, you seem unsure about selling it. Personally, I think you're mad to even consider it at this crucial point, but it's up to you. First though, tell us what games you own for the 'Cube and what genres you like and then we'll see if there's a decent future ahead for you and Nintendo :D
