Wavebird[edit]

The Wavebird was an interesting device at the time. But I do not believe that it was the first Wireless controller as is being said in the article. The 2600 had wireless controllers, the CD-I had wireless controllers, the Tandy/Memorex VIS had wireless Controllers, there was a wireless controller option on the Commodore 64GS since it could use accessories from the original Commodore64. That's just a few examples. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leeroyhim (talkcontribs) 23:09, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I believe the operative word here is gamepad. The Atari 2600 had a wireless joystick and the CD-i something resembling a remote-control with a small control joystick. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.145.121.151 (talk) 17:28, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Commercial Failure[edit]

Many in the industry have called this a commercial failure, including Microsoft. Why is there no section to this being known as a commercial failure?2602:304:CFD3:2EE0:80C7:890E:F43:CF74 (talk) 05:04, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

It isn't. It sold 22 million units, Microsoft's Xbox sold 24 million units. How does that make the GC a 'commercial failure'? While it didn't get as high as expected it wasn't a flop like the Virtual Boy or N64DD, they're actual commercial failures... --DixieKongJD (talk) 22:08, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Redirects to this page on other articles[edit]

Hello. According to how the page is named simply GameCube, could I get help on using the same name on other gaming articles that says, 'Nintendo GameCube, adding a redirect to GameCube.

For example: On Shigeru Miyamoto's Wiki page, with the timeline with 2000-2011, the link pointing to Nintendo GameCube is a redirect of simply GameCube. There are obviously many other articles with the name 'Nintendo GameCube', and I want them named to GameCube.

The reason why I want any of your help is because I want to reduce the number of redirects to 0 possibly.

Thanks for any help. I really appreciate it. Zacharyalejandro (talk) 20:01, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

I wouldn't worry about this to be honest, it's not a big deal. Redirects are fine, assuming they go to the correct target (which it does here). I did a quick filter on AutoWikiBrowser, and there 1331 pages linked to Nintendo GameCube, so it would take quite a while to change all those links to GameCube. I don't think worth spending that much time changes something that is rather minor and cosmetic. --The1337gamer (talk) 20:31, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
