The Game Sphere is the fifth platform release by Ninvento. The Game Sphere was Ninvento's second release in this console generation. The Game Sphere's real-life counterpart is the GameCube by Nintendo.

The main rivals to the Game Sphere were the Playsystem 2 by Vonny and the mBox by Mirconoft.

The most popular releases for the Game Sphere include Legend of Selda, the surprisingly popular Mega Mash Sisters, the player frustrating Bario Kart, and the outstanding Pokomon.

The Game Sphere had a disappointing launch with mediocre market share. It did not outsell any of its main competitors.

TriviaEdit

  • The name Game Sphere comes from the look of the console. The console is a reference to the real-life console, the GameCube, which looks like a cube.
  • It is possible that the Game Sphere is a reference to the Comedy Central show South Park . In the episode "Towlie", the boys receive an Okama Game Sphere from Stan's Mom in return for keeping a lemon safe. 
  • It is also possible that the Game Sphere is a reference to a recurring gaming system mentioned in the hit TV show "Drake and Josh" which shared the same name, the system was favored by Josh. 

Technical Specifications Edit

  • CPU: 64-bit FPU
  • RAM: 43-MB Onboard RAM
  • Sound: Dolby Pro Logic II Stereo Sound

Industry News Edit

  • "Today, Ninvento announced the new Ninvento Game Sphere, with which it will try to compete with Vonny's market leading Playsystem 2 and Mirconoft's strong alternative, the mBox . The curiously shaped console has similar hardware specifications as other consoles. The Game Sphere is Ninvento's first console to have an optical disc drive instead of cartridges. However, instead of using full sized CD and DVDs, like its competitors, the console features a mini-DVD drive. Game Spheres will start rolling into stores next month." - Year 12, Month 10, Week
