I have never seen any purple Gamecube cases all I have ever seen are black. Were these games new or used when you bought them?

Maybe because the launch color of the gamecube was purple?? I'm not sure honestly.

Are you sure it's not just a replacement case you got? You should take a picture if you can.

Maybe this was region specific or a reprint when a game sold well but I think that was a silver cas.

It's either real, or all the Mario Sunshines on UK eBay are fake :P

I never saw a purple one, or maybe I did? I don't remember. But it coud have to do with the fact that the original cube was indeed purple? So I wouldn't find it that weird to be honest.

Am I color blind or is that blue to me? Maybe I'm just not seeing it well.
I have to respect you though for creating one of the most random topics, and me participating in it makes me really think about life and so on...
