Question about Nintendo GameCube Console
If you do it for an extended period of time, yes, it will hurt it.
Most newer video game systems, including the GameCube, use lasers to read the discs which hold the games on them. Whenever your system is on and the game is reading, the laser is working. Unfortunately, we are all learning that lasers have limited lifetimes. As a result, leaving your system on pause can cause wear and tear to the laser.
The gamecube has been the most reliable system of its generation. Big reason is that you cannot play DVD movies on it. When you use your Playstation or XBox as a DVD player, it prematurely burns out the laser.
