  GameCube hits the shops in May
Updated 28 January 2002, 17.05
GameCube game
The long-awaited GameCube will hit the shops in Europe on 3 May, Nintendo has announced.

More than half a million of the new games consoles will go on sale and they'll cost 150 each.

That sounds a lot but it's cheaper than its rivals - Sony's PlayStation 2 (200) and Microsoft's Xbox (300).

Focus on gameplay

There'll be about 20 games at first but later in the year there'll be about 50.

The focus of the GameCube is on gameplay and there's a wireless control pad which means they can play from up to 10 metres away.

Gamers will also be able to connect to the GameBoy Advance so they can transfer a character from one machine to the other.
