DVD cube

The Nintendo GameCube game console is already available in Japan. Unfortunately, there is no way to play DVDs. Matsushita now offers a modified version of the GameCube with the name DVD-Cube under the Panasonic brand.

One has heard a lot about the DVD cube in the run-up to the GameCube release, but it was doubtful to what extent the rumors were true. Especially since it was unclear for a long time whether the normal Gamecube could also play DVDs. But now it is certain: Matsushita is bringing the DVD cube onto the market under the Panasonic brand. This basically consists of a normal GameCube with a few modifications. The design was, for the most part, taken from the original GameCube. The two handles and the additional display on the top of the device as well as the completely silver finish are new. In addition to the DVD playing time, the display also shows a few other things that one is used to from normal DVD players. Anyone who knows the GameCube will wonder where the discs are inserted when the handles and display are on top of the device. The DVD cube is a front loader, which means that the disc drawer extends to the front. The device supports all current standards from normal music CDs to video CDs and DVDs. In addition to Dolby Digital, dts is also supported. You don't have to forego convenience either, because a remote control is also included with the DVD cube. Unfortunately, the device is currently only planned for the Japanese market, at a price of around DM 700, where it should appear this year.
