Apparently we all missed it in the Perrin Kaplin thread, but she confirmed that production on Gamecubes has ceased.
"Are we producing any more GameCubes? No," said Kaplin. "But do we have the inventory there for people to still purchase? Yes."

It'll probably be a while before the cubes vanish from store shelves, but yeah, the end is in sight. Alas, poor purple cube, I knew ye well.

    Nintendo has denied reports that the company has stopped production of the GameCube and its software - stating that it still supports the console on a global basis.

    Speaking exclusively to our sister site Eurogamer.net, a spokesperson for Nintendo UK said: "I can confirm that globally, Nintendo is still continuing production of GameCube hardware and GameCube software."

    Looks like we might've used up a perfectly good eulogy on Nintendo's might-not-be-dead-yet GameCube. Nintendo of America VP Perrin Kaplan has been known to, erm, miss the mark, with some pretty notable quotes in the past (anyone remember that whole region-free debacle?), and now a Nintendo UK spokesperson has stepped in and contradicted her statement: "I can confirm that globally, Nintendo is still continuing production of GameCube hardware and GameCube software."

    Oh goddammit. That was JUST posted, so I missed it.

    Ah well, let's point and laugh at Perrin now.

    So, it's not true?

    Okay, good.
