not at all surprizing that this happened. what, with there mini discs, kid games and still blocky graphics, it was only a matter of time. the worse thing about this is the fact that there not going to be anymore zelda i love that series, owell.

Thats cuz you are afraid the XBox will destory your PS2.

Cube was a mistake. It died because they made it purple. If they were smart it would have been platinum. Nintendo's marketing sucks. Their gaming strategy sucks. But it would be perfect if they were a non console gaming company.

Xbox is a pretty capable gaming machine, even with the drawback of not being able to view dvd's with the remote + uplink thingy. the ability to store game files on the actual machine is a blessing as well, in stead buying 8mb memory sicks (which cost about as much as a game). not to mention the proness of the graphics

wow, im really tired of hearing about how bad the xbox is. its a damn good system. sure it doesn't have as many good games as PS2 but remember that PS2 already had an entire library of games from PS1. most of the new games for PS2 are also made for xbox.

plus, i don't think PS2 could even handle the game HALO. it would have to be toned down for PS2 to even be able to play it at all.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

the only thing that keeps me from buying the games is that they are so damn expensive.

another reason it failed is becasuse they put out all these kiddie games, but you have to have a fraknig PhD to figure them out, all teh damn puzzles and stuff, adn did anyone else think that "windwalker" was ass-ugly?

THREAD HIJACK!
No MORE CONSOLE WARS, there are threads for that. And this is not one.
As for being on topic, this is sad, Nintendo did screw a lot of things up when they did the marketing and decisons on games.
They could have done much much better. I know it, and they know it. They better as hell get it right next time, or I fear they are going to go bankrupt and such.
Dlink, the games are equal to or less then $50, the same with EVERY OTHER CONSOLE OUT THERE!

you dlink. would you like me to get you in contact with my friends friends dad who is a huge gamer and moder. he buys the hardware, mods it, and downloads isos to his boxes 140GB hd.

what makes me sad is developers still wont make exclusive games, but exclusive content still comes to the box

wtf are you talking about?
a) I never said any other system was better
b) I own a cube, hel, I own every nintendo system except for the virtual boy. I own three of teh 4 types of gameboys (we skiped pocket).
c) 50 bucks is too damn expensive, no matter what consol it is for.

I never said YOU did the hijacking, sorry about that.
I agree, $50 is a lot, but I live with it, I just dont buy many games.
At least the Gameboy line is doing damn good for Nintendo (I have all but pocket as well). And here we can find cheaper games.
Oh, as for cheap games, I dont know if Eternal Darkness is still like $15 or not, but if it is, just buy that one, its cheap and well worth it.

wind waker is the reason why cube failed?
...then why did it break the pre-order sales record?
and i also thought the game also had a nice graphical style.

when a video game system fails, it usually has little to do with sales outside of japan.

its also a known fact that the system that has dragon quest and final fantasy is gonna win...thats why nintendo already lost...sony owns part of square-enix.

I didn't say windwalker was the sole reason, the cube was dead long before that. The thing that turned me off to that game was the fact that it looked like shit. I was expecting a metroid prime type look, not the kiddy flat graphics. It looked wose than the old NES versions. The main reason why it failed is simple, lack of games. While PS2 is getting Tony Hawk 4 and 5 ready, TH3 is a "brand new game" for the cube and 64. It seems nintendo gets eery decent game about 6 months after sony does. By then the hype is dead. Also the Cube's controler was shit. It was made for 7-year-old hands. I have small hands and I hated it even. My hands go numb after about 45 minutes of SSBM, and I played SSB on 64 for hours at a time with no problem. Nintendo is a great company, but it is not for older audiences. Its most matuer game is Resident Evil, and it took how long for that to come out? All ni all, nintendo died because it just does not have the games to support it. I used to be a die-hard nintendo fan. Like I said, I own every system but virtual boy, but when the next generation of consols come out, I am going to have to go with sony.

Well, I could give a rat's ass about what other people say of Nintendo. I did my part and bought another GameCube earlier today. Y'all talk like Nintendo is already dead... That's far from true. And even if Nintendo were to go under two weeks from now, I'd still be playing my Cube when I turn 50.

I have SC2, and it is Fuggin' Amazing!
The Cube is far from dead, Nintendo just fucked up on a LOT of things this time as well. On the 64, it was the cartrage (I like the cart, but I guess Devs didnt...). And this time, it was marketing (NO ONE wants to buy a purple console in the US, got that?).
Personaly, I have large hands, and I LOVE the cubes pad! it is by fat better then the PS2, so I dont know what you are talking about dlink... And about TH4, it has been on the cube for a long ass time now, I dont know where you have been... Oh, ya way down south in aussy land... must be odd to game down there.... just import US games/consols, buy from amazon or something.
Nintendo better get things fixed for the next gen of consoles, or, well I dont know, they may not last too long.

What I was saying is that it takes forever for a game to come out on nintendo. and I still hate the control pad.
