I just ordered a Japanese GameCube with 3 game releases, 2 of them Japanese exclusive:

Game Cube Console - Spice Orange (Japan, NTSC J)
Kururin Squash (Japan, NTSC J)
Nintendo Puzzle Collection (Japan, NTSC J)
Wave Race Blue Storm (Japan, NTSC J)

The big problem with GameCube importing.... there is nothing to import. Literally. There are maybe 6 Japanese imports worth owning, with the rest being 10 or so TV spinoff games based on kids TV shows.

I threw Waverace in there because Play-Asia had it for super cheap (6.90!) and I don't own the North American release of this game yet. Plus, I need to put this system to good use. So a game like Waverace is a pickup and play game that I can put chill time into. Nothing like splashing around the water in timetrials.

Oh btw this system is orange. Whooooooooooooooooo!

Nintendo Puzzle Collection looks interesting because those are very addictive games at a special price and even brings a Gamecube to Gameboy Advancelink cable, which allows playing these games on the GBA Shocked very interesting. About Kururin Squash look its a party game, so must be fun when playing with other people. Good purchases ^ ^.

The Orange colour is good because I don't think it was released in both US/EU Smile .

Orange was an interesting color for Nintendo to choose. I'm looking to get a second GC as well and it's a toss up between the orange and indigo since I already have a black. I'm not a big fan of the platinum colored 'cube, but I used to own one when I picked up the Metroid Prime bundle back.

I would like to pick up that Nintendo Puzzle Collection myself, since it comes with a link cable

I dig the platinum one. If I weren't broke I would've bought one w/four wavebirds and set up a second TV for 8-player MarioKart.

yea that's actually a sweet set-up. four wavebirds and the platinum 'cube go great as a complete console combination. the wavebird was the perfect compliment for gamecube altogether, but now they can be very expensive. myself, i'm kind of on a spending budget right now so i havent been able to get my japanese gamecube yet, but i did get an extra gc console for $20 so i can use it for replacement parts, as a backup console or to have practice if i want to mod my own systems some day.

i think i would like to get an orange colour gc, or if i could ever get some of the other japan-only gc models i would be happy with that too. there's the red gundam, twin snakes, tales of symphonia, hanshin tigers editions and i think there was a white one also.
