The Nintendo GameCube became the first Nintendo gaming console to use optical discs as its primary storage medium. All Nintendo GameCube systems support stereoscopic 3D display.Generally competitors to Nintendo GameCube are Sony’s PS2, Microsoft’s Xbox, and Sega’s Dreamcast. In contrast to its competitor, the GameCube uses mini-DVD-based disks instead of full-size DVDs.
This results in lacking of DVD-Video playback functionality. This disc was the software storage medium for GameCube console, and was created by Matsushita.This disc was based on Nintendo’s first non-cartridge method and was chosen as a fact to prevent unauthorized copying seeing that mostly with a single DVD containing access to copy its data is preferred by players which certainly affects its stock-selling.

4 Mbit/512KB (gray card)
