Hi I was wondering why some gamecube game boxes are purple and some are black?

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.

I never knew there was purple ones...
Are you sure it's not just a replacement case you got? You should take a picture if you can.

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

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...

I think some UK games are purple because mine is the UK version and I don't see any black uk versions
