Default Man Nintendo wasnt the second coming of Christ.

But according to the old CEO of Nintendo they were. This company/and guy has a got lot of audacity in his opinions/beliefs and this mentality that killed nintendo IMO.

In the console market? Sure they have the hand held market and the pokemon franchise. But their console is hardly worth writing home about. It has a few good games. But I cant see a reason to really buy one over the options available.

And with the PSP they'll probably loose the only niche market they still control

Well they still have pokemon, unless digimon or monster rancher suddenly become popular. (actually come to think of it I think both of those are exclusively playstation titles)

Fakedy fake fake fake...

besides MUYA posted it 3 days ago in the open forum

I got my hands on a PSP yesterday btw, in a local game/import shop here in Leeds. Only for about 30 seconds, the guy in the store was giving me funny looks and looked nervous. The buttons felt a little small compared to the dual shock, but my GOD that screen is nice.

I meant they sold enough units to turn a profit. There are many good titles for gamecube as well, though im not a console gamer, Metroid Echo's got huge acclaimjust recently, there where quite a few big releases in oct/nov/dec. Many even said Echo's was better then Halo 2. The handheld market.. we'll just have to wait and see. I don't see many parents buying timmy psp's, just too damn expensive and big. Like it or not, kids are the majority of the handheld market.

The Gamecube also has better profit margins then ps2/xbox, nintendo makes more per unit sold.

Mike

Thats because Xbox's certainly and possibly the new PS2's although I'm not sure, are sold at a loss, and the difference is recovered in software sales.

The GameCube is great system just like the N64 but just like that system only games made by nintendo and few others have trully done the system justice. The other systems have for more varity and games. Also some would miss out on a great system because they think it's for kids but I dont. One of my favorite system with the best exclusives. Also I remember reading Nintendo loses nothing when it sells a cube and could sell it for $50 and still not lose anything.

Yeah people under estimate the graphics processor in the Gamecube, if you look at its top games its right up there with the other consoles (well maybe stuck between Xbox and PS2 so its kinda the mid graphics console) their only problem is bad development of games. exclusives like RE4 and the Metroid series are what keep people interested, and surprise hits like Viewtiful Joe help too.... its very affordable and who cares if it doesnt have online play, the good games are still fun.

eh? if your refering to the cube's graphics performance (somthing i was not even talking about) it's squarely above the PS2 in power, but below Xbox. This dosent have anything to do with the thread though.
