Why?

I actually would really like a gamecube right now, but WHY can't they just have a simple gamecube for sale? Why do they have to bundle it with a ton of stuff that not everyone may want right away? This kind of sneaky marketing makes it a lot more difficult for those who have smaller budgets to work with, to get a game system, and not just Nintendo is doing this, Microsoft and Sony are just as guilty. Come on you guys let the little gamers have a chance to play too!

For starters, Nintendo has quite clearly made this a game-only machine. It doesn't try to play your CD collection, run your movies, read your e-mail, or store your MP3 files. The company has concentrated its efforts on games. The prelaunch titles we've seen play uniformly smooth, with bright, fast graphics and great sound. Nintendo says its engineers have removed traditional "bottlenecks" that have, in the past, slowed down processing. New components designed by IBM and MoSys, as well as a large-capacity secondary memory cache, keep instructions moving through the system's microprocessor (MPU) at peak levels.
