I'm pretty sure that video speaks for itself.  I won't spoil the end for you.

I think we probably all know who wins though.  And who loses.  Oh well.  I can still play more games on my PS2 smile

After watching that guy drag his Gamecube behind his car for half a mile, and then still plug it in and play a game on it I had a pretty good feeling who would win as well... smile

I dunno, hard drives are shock sensitive.  Not as badly as in the past, but still...

The Gamecube that wouldn't die. biggrin

See, Nintendo has always built their consoles Ford Tough, and movies like this show that.

Yeah, I dropped my DS out of a car onto concrete and it still works just fine.  Got a few little scrapes on the outter shell and that is it.  A PSP, would have shattered into tiny little microfragments.

I wish they had let the games load up. Not much you can do with a console if the DVD players is completely busted.

Where was the guy who dropped his DS into the spa and have it survive? I would've expected him to post here by now. biggrin

Thats what I was thinking... that Gamecube wasnt going to boot a game up.

My kids dropped the Gamecube on a concrete floor... killed the drive, the cube still booted up, but wouldnt load a game.

Nintendo is the king of quality as seen in my DS-JACUZZI stress tests.

Well considering the lid wouldn't close on the gamecube, we already knew it wouldn't load a game.  At least it still posted though!

I agree 100%.  Her normal voice is already annoying but that accent makes it 1 million times worse.

Who wouldn't have thought the GC wouldn't have won?

Its compact, its small, its a perfect solid square.

PS2 isn't even a shape, its like.... weird.

Xbox is just a tank, but the pieces arent glued on good I guess.

I wonder what it would be like with the Slime PS2?

The weight test would probably break the Slime right in half.
