This morning, we proclaimed that the Wii was totally superior to the GameCube based on a comparison of each console's first year. But now we aren't so sure. While the Wii has enjoyed mainstream attention, a mega-hit pack-in game, and a fantastic early lineup, the GameCube had Gamer Ade.

Can the Wii compete with a console with its own energy drink? We don't see how. Gamer Ade was handed out to "Nintendo publication employees" (which we think must mean Nintendo Power) and no one else, presumably because too much Ade could be dangerous.

Luckily, the Wii is not hopeless. One lucky Wii owner (or non-Wii owner, eBay doesn't care!) can harness the power of one long-expired can of this limited-edition drink, for only 99 cents (as of right now!)
