Nintendo GameCube Isn't Dead Yet

We're unsure what Nintendo will do with its next console, but a recent price drop for its GameCube video game console has breathed life into the dying system. The new $99 price has produced a dramatic increase in sales for the console. Last month, GameCube outsold Microsoft Xbox, grabbing 37 percent of all video game console sales, compared with just 21 percent for the Xbox. Sony PlayStation 2 still holds the top spot with 42 percent. Many game companies and analysts considered the video game console war a two-company battle, but the resurgent GameCube will require many game makers to reconsider their decision not to support the GameCube.
