The Wii, released in 2006, was the successor of the GameCube.
In the previous generation, the Nintendo 64 used ROM cartridges which put it at a disadvantage when compared to its CD-ROM-based competitors as cartridges were more expensive to produce than optical media.
For the follow-up to the Nintendo 64, codenamed Dolphin, Nintendo opted to use optical media. Nintendo partnered with Panasonic to produce the GameCube Game Disc, a proprietary format based on MiniDVDs which can contain up to 1.46 GB of data.
