Why Nintendo Made A GameCube With A Cartridge Slot
Nintendo Made A GameCube With A Cartridge Slot. What’s Inside?

In today’s episode, I’ll be taking a look at an interesting and very RARE piece of Nintendo Hardware, the NPDP Reader. This device, which looks very similar to a Gamecube, has a very unique feature. It has a cartridge slot! Instead of just taking a look at the exterior features of the device, I’ll be taking it completely apart to show you the inside and what makes this device so unique!
