Power Station was the first home console developed by Power Team. The console was release in 2000 with 20 launch titles including the best selling game on the Power Station, Ultra Mario, as part of the Power Mario series.
The console has an "Owner" section and a "Guest" section. The Guest section offers less options such as no online features or saving.
The Power Station was quite revoloutionairy for its time, as it allowed up to five players to connect instead of four, it was the first video game console to use over 100 colours.
Like the Dreamcast, it had online capability. The online service was called Power Global Network, and allowed players to play online.
One unique feature of the Power Station was that it had a Record button, where players could record gameplay of games and save it in a section in the main menu called The Record Room. Recordings could only go up to 20-40 minutes (depending on the console's memory).
The console also used discs instead of cartridges for its games. The discs were about twice the size of the GameCube's discs.
