  • It's Nintendo Day!
    Nintendo spouted off a variety of interesting news today, announcing that Gamecube sales had quadrupled in the US since last week's pricedrop, with 61k units being sold in 7 days as opposed to 15k each week all summer. It seems they liked that, as they also mentioned the imminent price drop from €199 to €99 (?79) in Europe which should spur another couple of thousand people to finally get the purchase over with. The company also had some bad news, dropping its first half projections from a profit of $117M to a loss of $23M due to losses in foreign exchange rates. That economy, eh?

  • Nintendo takes Gamecube to China
    As the first console maker to do so, Nintendo is launching the Gamecube in China under the pseudonym "iQue player", in an attempt to battle the humongous amounts of piracy there.
