Yeah, I think Xbox is outselling GC all over Europe at the moment too though, but I can't be sure.

And that Metroid Prime bundle apparently contains a MP2 demo disk, which would be a great bundle for anyone interested in Metroid, and should sell very well if advertised properly. A Resident Evil bundle would be a good idea too... throw in a RE4 demo and it'll go flying off shelves.

Numbers for June should be out within the next week. I predict Driv3r will be on top, not sure how Four Swords would have done, but I don't expect much.

Well it does have the 2D disadvantage. As for system sales I expect the usual GBA > PS2 > Xbox >>> GCN.

Well MC no one really bought all the other Xbox games beside halo, tom clancy  games , random shooters, KOTOR, Ninja Gaiden,and the random Xbox Live!(or !eviL by KDR's book) games you get my drift....   As I heard the Xbox software sell rate is pretty crappy comparing to software sales of GCN,PS2,GBA.

True dat. The reason Xbox sells more games though is that is has so many games in that middle ground. The ones that sell 100k+ but not a million. With gamecube, it's more like you sell great, or you completely flop.

Erm.. According to the most recent EGM in their Nintendo E3 section, the average number of games in a GC owner's library is 12.8 games.  Or do you mean something different?

True.  And Nintendo states they forecast sales of 20 million gamecubes (total) by the end of this fiscal year according to that same issue.

Man, I wonder how much better the GameCube version would've done if it wasn't the inferior "cheaply tossed together" version, with deliberately screwed-up controls.

Or if Capcom hadn't delayed the GameCube version along with the PS2 version, until they could get the PS2 version working properly.

ruby: Sony demands enghancements for late ports. If they released MMAC for the GC first Sony would demand additioal features in the PS2 MMAC. Okay, there ARE such features (though Sony might have decided they want them exclusive despite the port not being late...) but that difference wasn't deliberate (at least, that's the official story...)

nooooo no no no

that can't be right

is that the total sales of all GC games overall??? that just doesn't sound plausible. Viewtiful Joe sold much much much much much better than that...i mean...

good grief, if it didn't then Iwata is dead on correct...the industry is dead and all people want to do now is shoot and maime things...

*looks at sales again...contemplates suicide...*

no! must...hold on....for RE4... where shooting and maiming is the right thing to do...

"Man, I wonder how much better the GameCube version would've done if it wasn't the inferior 'cheaply tossed together' version, with deliberately screwed-up controls."

It probably wouldn't make much of a difference since most people who bought it probably didn't know the controls were goofed.  Still I'm quite surprised the Cube version sold better considering it's not only the inferior version but the PS2 userbase is just so much bigger.

'good grief, if it didn't then Iwata is dead on correct...the industry is dead and all people want to do now is shoot and maime things..."

Yeah just look at the top ten for the month

1 PS2 SPIDER-MAN:THE MOVIE2 Activision
2 XBX FULL SPECTRUM WARRIOR THQ
3 GCN ZELDA: FOUR SWORDS Nintendo
4 PS2 DRIV3R Atari
5 XBX SPIDER-MAN:THE MOVIE2 Activision
6 XBX CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK Vivendi
7 PS2 SHREK 2 Activision
8 XBX DRIV3R Atari
9 PS2 MVP BASEBALL 2004 Electronic Arts
10 PS2 HARRY POTTER: AZKABAN Electronic Arts

We've got 5 movie games and one sports game so right there 60% of the top ten are generic licenced titles.  Of the four non-licenced titles two of them are Driv3r which completely sucks.  So we're left with two titles that are actually good and Full Spectrum Warrior is a generic war game that focuses on realism over creativity. So out of the top ten only ONE of those titles is one with any sort of originality or innovation and it's a Zelda game and thus probably sold more because of it's name than the innovation found within (and Four Swords is quite innovative).  Yeah I'd say it's fair to think the industry is dying.

Though in Japan Zelda is the only one of these titles that would even have a shot at making the top ten so things aren't totally hopeless.  If generic America product keeps dominating it might bring more Japanese third parties to Nintendo's side since that's really the only place where they don't have to compete with casual gamers in the North American market.  As long as Nintendo can tough it out and survive for the next few years we may see a complete split where hardcore gamers play Nintendo almost exclusively while all the casuals play Sony and MS.  There's enough creative developers out there that if they all teamed up to support one console they could survive.
