Realizing that a mere half-megabyte of memory-card data wasn't a whole lot, Nintendo also unveiled the SD-Digicard Adapter, a small addition which could be connected to the 4-megabit Digicard to allow Matsushita's standard Secure Digital SD Cards to work with GameCube. SD Cards, which are already established around the world and used in such devices as digital cameras and MP3 players, offer a data storage capacity beginning at 8MBs and running up to 64MBs currently, with even bigger cards planned. So what is the purpose of all these memory cards? Does anybody need more data storage capacity than what the basic 4-megabit Digicard delivers?
IGN reported that the system was "designed from the get-go to attract third-party developers by offering more power at a cheaper price. In particular for GameCube, we spent three years working with Nintendo of America and with all sorts of developers, trying to understand the challenges, needs, and problems they face.
First among these is the rising cost of development. On top of that, it is rich in features, and we worked to include a dream group of technical features that developers requested. By comparison, the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, also sixth-generation consoles, both use 8.
Like its predecessor, the Nintendo 64, GameCube models were produced in several different color motifs. The system launched in "Indigo", the primary color shown in advertising and on the logo, and in "Jet Black".
However, the feature was never enabled outside of development.
When the power is activated with the "Z" button on the Player 1 controller held down, a more whimsical startup sound is heard in place of the standard one. With four controllers connected, holding down the "Z" button on all four simultaneously produces a " ninja -like" tune at startup.
Nintendo released three official memory card options: A few games were known to have compatibility issues with the Memory Cardand at least two games have save issues with any size.
This suggests that 5 save blocks are devoted to some sort of system information. In addition to vibration feedbackthe DualShock series was well known for having two analog sticks to improve the 3D experience in games. Nintendo and Microsoft designed similar features in the controllers for their sixth-generation consoles, but instead of having the analog sticks parallel to each other, they chose to stagger them by swapping the positions of the directional pad d-pad and left analog stick.
The GameCube controller features a total of eight buttons, two analog sticks, a d-pad, and an internal rumble motor. The primary analog stick is on the left with the d-pad located below and closer to the center. On the right are four buttons: Below and to the inside is a yellow "C" analog stick, which often serves a variety of in-game functions, such as controlling the camera angle.
Each essentially provides two functions: As the trigger is depressed, it emits an analog signal which increases the more it is pressed in. Once fully depressed, the trigger "clicks" registering a digital signal that can be used for a separate function within a game.
There is also a purple, digital button on the right side marked "Z". Having been the primary action button in past Nintendo controller designs, it was given a larger size and more centralized placement for the GameCube.
The RF -based wireless controller is similar in design to the standard controller. Powered by two AA batteries, which are housed in a compartment on the underside of the controller, the WaveBird lacks the vibration functionality of the standard controller.
