take a look at the video of nintendo rebirth from the gamecube (2000) http://www.youtube.com/results?search=nintendo+rebirth&search_type=search_videos&search=Search great stuff, wish we had some of that gameplay on the Gamecube. I heard the gamecube was only used to about 20% of its power? Aside from RE4 and a handful of others.. It would be really awesome to see what the Wii can pull off if that's what the Gamecube could do. Really nice stuff i bet, Anyways, enjoy the read. http://www.codenamerevolution.com/ CR Analysis: A look back at Flipper and Rebirth June 17th, 2006 We know already that the Hollywood GPU in the Wii is considered to be more or less an extension of the Gamecube’s Flipper GPU. According to the IGN specs, it runs just a tad faster then the Flipper. Regarding Flipper however, the question we have is was the GPU truly used to the max? It is well known that 85% of third-party Gamecube titles were ported games (mostly from PS2) and unfortunately most third-parties threw alot shovelware on the platform, a platform that used a mini-DVD and was considered to be in ‘third place’. However games like Resident Evil 4 pushed the graphics on the system beyond what typical games delivered and there were some games that looked nearly as good as the Xbox counterpart. Fight Night Round 2 is a good example of a title that looked like just the Xbox version. Back in 2000, Nintendo showed off a tech demo to show off the power of the Gamecube. The demo was known as “Rebirth”. It simply blew everyone away at the time although some portions of the demo were pre-rendered, most of it was actually in real-time. It showed off alot of potential of what could be done with the Gamecube. If you take a look at most of the images from Rebirth (Click Here) you begin to see the Flipper in a different way. If the graphical capabilities were as good as was shown in Rebirth could it just be that what we have seen at E3 was only just Gamecube’s graphics? Mario Galaxy was possibly the most impressive visually, it seems as though that the Flipper could handle the game’s graphics. But does this mean the Hollywood is the same as the Flipper? Ubisoft admits it is more powerful then the Xbox and as ATi puts it, all we have seen is the ‘tip of the iceberg’.
