just to offer my two cents i think it was be a disaster if the gamecube will be cracked. im kinda hoping it dosent happen. remember when the ps2 was cracked? i believe sony wasent going nuts on it cuz they are making huge profit and can afford to sustain the loss caused by these modchips. same things with xbox since Microsoft is a rich company they will not go up in flames like sega did though they need to start selling some games or their in trouble with their investors lol sega had such a huge loss thanks to groups like utopia. Nintendo is like sega sure they are richer then sega was. if nintendo is barely making a profit now look what will happen when the modchip comes out. Nintendo will go up in flames like sega. Dreamcast was Sega finest hour in my own opinion.im sure very few people actually use the modchips for this so called devlopment but more for piracy.
