What exactly was nintendo thinking when they tacked on that thing? Never since I got the gamecube on release did I even considered using that handle-thing.
>>
>>273928982
Its so kids can take it to their friends house.
>>
Got a lot of use in my highschool, tons of Melee matches during lunches and afterschool.
>>
So you could take it to school and use it as a lunchbox.
>>
So you couldn't put it up against a wall.
Same reason for those fins on the side.

To prevent overheating
>>
>>273929049
op doesn't know what friends are, he speedruns
>>
>>273929049
>>273929054
But you still need to take cables with you, might as well take a bigger bag and put in the GC as well.

>>273929207
Sounds way more reasonable than using it as a handle.
>>
the idea of bringing it over to friends' houses... wouldn't they not want that and want everyone having their own, instead? so the handle seems counter productive.
>>
It was created for the Japanese. They could easily move their console in their small homes.
>>
It allows it to be used as a weapon and lets you carry it to your friend's house.

What's the matter Anon, didn't you have any friends?
>>
>>273928982
So you could whack your friend with it when you lose.
>>
>>273929405
Maybe when you go to your aunt or uncles house and they don't have any vidya.
>>
>>273929049

Not buying the official carrying case
>>
To make hitting people with it easier. Nintendo also made sure to make the thing durable enough to still play after a beating.
>>
>>273930082
This. That handle is great to hold on to when you're whipping the gamecube around into someone's face.

Very sturdy.
>>
You're suppose to stick your dick in it.
>>
>>273929230
Wow, look at those shots.
>>
>>273928982
Their philosophy at the time was being a kid again. So this thing resembles a lunch box you take to school. Only, you can't put food inside the GameCube to take to school for lunch.
>>
I am a tourneyfag and I use that handle almost every day.

So you could carry it around, bring it to a friends house and show it off like a cumdumpster.

I remember seeing a bunch of hipster fucks carry this thing around campus

Remember these people?

I remember some bitch was turning old gamecubes into tissue boxes

I forgot Paris Hilton even existed. I remembered her obvious homage character in The Suite Life of Zach and Cody more.

Wayne Brady's cool, though. Good Whose Line stuff.
>>
>>273929586
This and to prevent overheating. Small electronics like the GameCube got the Japanese aesthetic. In fact the XBOX Hueg's unwieldily size was one of the reasons that console flopped in moonland

Why do manlets love nintendo so much?
>>
Holding a gamecube without the handle would be awkward, prove me wrong
>>
>>273932815
because they never learn
>>
>>273932889
hold under arm like with wii
>>
>>273929207
this, also can you imagine how much you could fuck someone up by swinging that nintendium brick at their face by that handle?

Nope.

Clearly I was correct.

I remember magazines giving away free replacements for that black circle on the disc lid.

I got a ballin MGS one, and the next day, my sister sat on the Gamecube and pushed it through with her fat ass, destroying the laser head. I was super fucking pissed.

I didn't bother getting a replacement and just stuck with my PS2 from then on out. Never finished Crystal Chronicles because of her big ass.
>>
If half you manlets ever had long car rides
you should have had a portable screen that Nintendo pimped for these things
it connected into the back
also
>not knowing the glory of full on LAN/multi console parties

should've known
>>
>>273933470
more like
oh yeah, this will ruffle some non retard's feathers".
You were indeed right .
>>
>>273932352
Gamecubes are a dime a dozen now, and completely replaced by the Wii. Might as well use them for arts and crafts.
>>
>>273933624
I hope you reminded her of this at Thanksgiving the other day

Didn't they sell a screen accessory so it can be played without a TV?

Was she using it as an actual seat? Or do it you leave it on the couch like a tard?

How's that independence going?
>>
You never boxed someone with gamecubes?
>>
>>273929207
Aaaaaaaaah, that makes sense. I carried that shit that way though. Was so cash. I even scrapped out the old parts when I got a Wii and made it my lunchbox.
>>
>>273933079
Shit, at least Nintendo consoles have a minimal failure rate.
I can't remember how many ties I've dropped my Cube and still worked.
>>
>>273932784
Literally who?
>>
>>273933079
And yet Nintendo consoles have the lowest fail rate 100% of the time. Enjoy your red rings and yellow lights, I know my friends didn't. I was one of the lucky few to not lose their original PS3fat.
>>
>>273934168

It was on the floor next to the TV stand. I had loads of consoles back then, and I was always swapping them out to play new shit. She decided to sit on the Gamecube one day for whatever reason, and broke the damn thing.

>>273934272

Can't believe all those people voted no. There's obviously going to be hardcore no voters, dedicated to the idea of the stupid Union, but those who were swayed by fear into voting for the "secure" Union, all of them are idiots.

The Smith Commission on "new powers for Scotland" will likely get glazed over, and not even passed at the next General Election. All the recommended powers are useless anyway. Just the powers to increase tax on ordinary people, meaning any government in Holyrood who doesn't use the powers risks the integrity of Holyrood, but if they do use them, they'll be hated by the people.

Fuck Westminster.

I dropped it from a shelf like 2 times and from lower places a few more, thing never broke. The playstation sits on the floor all day and then gets random problems, magic.
