Free GameBoy player with new GC

Nintendo has announced plans to offers new purchasers of a Gamecube a free player for Game Boy games with every console.

The offer gives Gamecube owners access to more than 1,200 available Game Boy games on their TV screens, and will be available in North American from June 23, with a June 20 launch in Europe. The player is a thin platform which sits underneath a Gamecube - cartridges slot into the player, and games are controlled using the Gamecube controller.

"This offer builds on the incredible momentum generated by our Game Boy Advance line, which has already sold 35 million systems worldwide," says Peter MacDougall, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America. "Once we saw the enthusiastic reception given to the debut of Game Boy Player here on the show floor at the E3 trade show, it was an easy decision to move ahead with our plans to combine these two products."
