Only PAL Game Cube's support RGB natively. NTSC GameCube's
support S-Video, which still produces a good picture. If you're a big fan of the GameCube, or would like to use the
GameBoy Player attachment, please read on, as this page should contain everything you need.
Information on playing GameBoy, GameBoy Color and GameBoy Advance games on your GameCube.
My Life In Gaming recently uploaded an excellent video explaining all the output options of
the GameCube, along with lots more information. I highly recommend that any GameCube fan check it out:
- If you want the best quality from your GameCube, you'll need the official component video
cables. They're extremely expensive, but produce a really high quality image and can even be
modified to output VGA.
- If you're only a casual GameCube user and don't use the GameBoy Player Adapter, I'd strongly
recommend just using a Wii, as early models are fully backward-compatible, including the actual
controllers. Also, the Wii opens up an amazing door of opportunity, as described in the Wii
section of this site.
- The S-Video (for NTSC) and RGB (for PAL) outputs should be good enough for anyone that's not a die-hard
GameCube or GBA fan. It's worth giving them a try before dropping a lot of money on a component
cable. For NTSC, try a good quality S-Video cable. For PAL, buy one of these RGB cables.
