A Dolphin's Tale: The Story of GameCube
The company discovered that many gamers became personally attached to their consoles. They would take their consoles over to a friend’s house to play, or they would move their console from one room to another. Nintendo decided to include a handle on the GameCube to give it portability and a more personal, friendly look.

So you've spent the holidays playing games, but now you have to be back at work. How to get your gaming fix during commutes and lunch-hours, whilst keeping up with that resolution to Learn Something New this year? Well, you could make a Sack-Boy.
You can keep your portable games device warm with a Zelda cosy
. You can knit up a Pacman scarf
or a Space Invaders bag
if you're feeling retro. Or you can make a pocket ninja
, an invincibility star
to get you through the afternoon, a maqgnetic Katamari ball
to spring-clean that desk, or a friendly companion cube
. (and if you're too cack-handed to knit, you can sew a friendly cube with the pattern here
and tutorial here
