Thanks to GameSpy for its article charting the progress of Nintendo's GameCube console from launch to the present day
, as part of an ongoing series that has also included
the Xbox. The piece starts with the bold statement: "Despite being the wrong product at the wrong time, Nintendo's durable GameCube game console has demonstrated lasting power in a market for which it was not well targeted"
, and ends by noting: "GameCube will certainly end this generation in second place internationally -- the virtual shutout that Xbox received in Japan settles that part of the race, and it may yet challenge Microsoft in the U.S. and European markets."
What's your view of the success of the GameCube and its software titles in the current console generation?
