I retired my launch day Cube when I got the Wii. After 5 years of heavy-duty service, she earned her downtime. The only time I'd use her now is if I want to play Doshin, which would require me to use the Free Loader.
And for the record, purple is the only color a true Cube connoisseur will have. Anything else would be uncivilized.
