However, the real fun can only be had while playing, as the GameCube Vision camera is completely useless because it doesn’t have any processing power left

Not only was Mario’s first Nintendo globe trot forgotten, but Nintendo was left looking a little blank in the wake of GameCube’s disastrous launch. But don’t worry, Nintendo is not taking this lightly, as it’s awarding a whopping six awards, including one for Nintendo’s new console. The biggest prize of all the awards is the Nintendo Power trophy – the GameCube’s fourth hardware launch title and the first since the Game Boy. But Nintendo is also giving away some very cool stuff in the shape of Power Power Medals (four of which are no less than 10 points), which can be downloaded, purged and displayed in your game’s character menu. One example of how cool these Power Medals are is in action is in Super Mario Galaxy, which gives you the option to download a new level of Mario as a blue shell, or a purple shell, or a white shell, or a red shell, or a black shell. Nintendo also confirmed the exact order of the Lifetime Achievement in Super Mario Galaxy. This is a special achievement in the game that’s completely separate from the normal Achievements you’ll unlock in the regular story. Wii Fit Plus, which has been available for Nintendo DS for ages and is a staple of the Gamecube’s games for years, is also on the list. The other big surprise is the absence of the GameCube Vision Camera, which some people believe was scrapped because it simply didn’t work any more. We believe it’s just because the GameCube Vision Camera was always aimed at a very different audience, which is why it wasn’t scrapped – the market is now completely different. Nintendo has even managed to get the GameCube Vision Camera working perfectly, online with Gamecube Vision on Wii Fit Plus. However, the real fun can only be had while playing, as the GameCube Vision camera is completely useless because it doesn’t have any processing power left. Nintendo is promising to reveal more details about its GameCube Vision camera soon. If you’re still crying, check out our original story .
