Hmmmm...I hope a new GC add on will come out improving the Cubes performance. Just a small boost in power will make it powerful enough to create any game they want. The Cube is almost the perfect console, it just needs some more power to take away the almost.

The GC has plenty if power no doubt. What I think it may need is a disc with a little more storage capacity. Something at least 4.7 GB's like a full size DVD.

I dont think that they are gonna announce any new hardware, but i suppose that they might share info about Mario kart gc, pokemon gc, and the release schedule for 2003.

so third-party can put more FMV ? The actual GC disc seem alright to me. More storage capacity seem useless knowing most game using more than 2gig are moslty for cut-scene.

There isn't a need for that. Factor 5 has develop a new DIVX compression tool for GC, and the disc can hold a two hours movie. So developer that uses a lot of video can benefit and dont need to use a second disc.
