Nintendo GameCube WILL Use DVDs

Following on from yesterday's announcement regarding the GameCube, I've been pointed in the direction of an article that suggests the stupidly titled machine WILL indeed use DVDs, but not quite as you'd expect. As with CDs, the DVDs standard allows for an 8cm sized disc that will hold around 1.5Gb on a single side and it is these discs that the Ninty machine will use.

So, whilst the GameCube will use DVDs, it won't be able to play back your regular 12cm movies. Boo.

Thanks to Joober for the tip-off on that one.
