Coming soon! A completely redesigned version of the HDMI Gamecube mod, with the following new features.
- Much neater fitting (see pictures)
- Uses a custom designed FPGA board just for the Gamecube
- Cost reduced (price still subject to change, but price given above should be close now)
- Original digital video connector no longer removed
- Use both Nintendo Digital Video out and HDMI out at the same time if desired
The Nintendo Gamecube HDMI upgrade powers up your classic console with a fully digital HDMI output port that supports both video and audio. All Gamecube screen modes are supported, 240p can be line-doubled to 480p for full HDMI compatibility, while interlace modes can be either line doubled or sent directly to the display. All line-doubling is done on the fly, there’s no frame buffer and therefore no input lag.
Fully compatible with modern HDTVs or analogue 31khz displays by using a simple HDMI to VGA converter. For a full run-down of what this mod can do, see this page.
Get both the region free and HDMI upgrades at the same time and we can give you a small discount (plus you save on postage costs too!).
Remember, in order for your Gamecube to be compatible with this mod, it MUST have the “Digital AV Out” port at the back of the console. Later model Gamecube consoles that do not have this port are unfortunately not compatible.
Please note this is a complex mod and this is reflected in the price and turnaround time. It also requires a cosmetic change to the rear of the Gamecube, as you can see in the picture above and on the left. While we will do our very best to get a neat cut, please remember we only have access to off the shelf Dremel type cutting tools and not an industrial cutting rig.
This mod provides audio and video through the HDMI cable, but a very small number of TVs may be incompatible with audio/video mode. In this case, audio can be disabled through HDMI and routed through the consoles analogue output to a suitable receiver as normal.

For quite a long time I was eager to improve the picture quality on my GameCube and living in the UK it's easier said than done. I decided it would be far too costly to achieve so I gave up on it eventually. That is of course until Nintendo Life reviewed this newly released mod and gave it top marks, so I decided I would have to try it. I can safely say that anyone who wants to up the ante and upgrade their GameCube should buy this mod. The picture quality is astounding especially when you compare it with an RGB scart cable, the two simply don't compare! I tested a number of PAL region games such as Soulcalibur II, Super Mario Sunshine and Skies of Arcadia Legends and all of them showcased enhanced detail and cleaner pictures overall. Not to mention the improved audio fidelity which is instantly noticeable on first hearing. Customer service was exemplary, all my emails got a quick response and I was given regular updates too, top notch! I am also very pleased to see that the price of the mod has also come down in price substantially making this the definitive option over the component cable (which tend to go for some pretty high pennies on ebay). Yes if you live in the UK or anywhere else where your GameCube games don't support 480p then invest in this mod, you won't regret it.
Thanks for the kind review! Please note that this mod only performs a simple line-double for 480i games so it's no substitute for actually running Gamecube software in 480p.
Recently my friends and I have been on the quest to get the best image from our old game systems. I was introduced to the XRGB Framemiester and scart cables, which was totally foreign to me. The pictures are great, but the use of these enormous cables and extra switchbox for the amount of systems I have is a bit of a hassle. Enter the Gamecube HDMI MOD. I can't even remember how I heard of this, but the moment I knew it was available I had to give it a go. Of course, the price and the early pics of the mod, did make me think twice. But I just had to give it a go. All I can say it was totally worth it! the picture output is truly a sight to behold. Not only does it look great but sounds great as well. I also want to mention that the service and communication that I had with Matt from Videogameperfection was also something I rarely ever encounter. He responded to all my emails, kept me updated on the status of my mod and treated me like an old friend that loves videogames and took everything very seriously. Just an awesome experience as this was my first time to get any of my systems modified. As mentioned before, if your on the fence on doing this and your an avid retrogamer, just do it. The only thing that was less than perfect, but I knew this going in, was the actual look of the mod. Yes, it looks a little diy, but its not like your staring at the back of your Gamecube all day long. Although I do know its there. Hopefully they'll improve the look of the mod and maybe I can get it fixed to look nicer. Thanks again for this awesome mod!
Thanks for the review and the kind words! Please note that since this review was published we've improved the fitting significantly and the new mod is much tidier looking.
