Game Cube on sale for £39.99 in the UK

Last year, a number of British retailers dropped the price of the GameCube dramatically in an effort to clear stocks of the console before dropping it from their ranges; however, sales of the system jumped significantly enough at the lower price-point to convince several chains to continue selling the hardware.

Nintendo later dropped the price of the Cube to £79.99, the promotional price which the retail chains had offered, leading to strong sales of the GameCube in the run up to Christmas – although sales declined rapidly once more in the new year.

While it seems unlikely that the Index sale precipitates a drop of that magnitude in the Cube’s official price later this year, a Nintendo spokesperson was keen to emphasise that Index has shown no signs of dropping the Cube from its range.
