GameCube nets $100 million on its first day, with an average of 2-3 games per unit sold. Launch numbers inside.

Perrin Kaplan told Reuters that Nintendo netted $100 million in revenue on the first day of Nintendo's GameCube launch, surpassing Harry Potter ($90 mil.)

Though 700,000 units were shipped, she did not say how many were sold. However, Kaplan did tell Reuters that sell-throughs were "over what we think Microsoft's allocation was."

100,000 more units per week are expected to reach retail stores through the end of the year, reaching 1.2 million -- ahead of their original forecast. If you missed out, you have more chances.

The top selling title was Luigi's Mansion, followed by Rogue Leader, then Wave Race.
