Pretty sure it was. But lack of people thinking nothing was wrong such as YOURSELF would be one of the top reasons by default.

Oh and for those that are probably readin my opening post wrong I said "Disaster" not "Failure." 2 different things.

The Gamecube wasn't really a disaster for Nintendo. It actually did well.

The only Nintendo console that was a disaster was the Virtual Boy.

The only reason why it did well for Nintendo was because they had other money coming from somewhere else (some of it was from the GBA.) to hold up the lack of money and sales they were getting, especuially in software, having the same result with a high power console the next gen would have stabbed them which is why they went Wii. Also notice I said "Disater" not "Failure" and by that I meant in the market with the competition.

But still, the Gamecube sold decently and got better third-party support than the N64.

Which all suffered from software sales. Also the GC did poorly in NA and Japan (odd) and had decent software sales in PAL (odd) The N64 sold more, they were way to overconfident with brand name, that hurt them with the GC and thus is why they suddenly started being nice to developers. The GC by itself with none of Nintendos arcades, GBA sales, and other products would have had them start loosing money into the red around the late 2002 early 2003 period. The GC never actually met any set expectations (or well at least ones publicly announced.) The question is thugh, what where the leading causes to this? or that' what I am asking you, the consumers. or, well eh, Gamespot gamers in legacy platforms.

I'm surprised people are saying the GC did well in this thread. The console not only finished in last place in terms of sales last gen by a very large margin (ignoring the DC obviously), but it did so poorly that it nearly killed Nintendo (or at least nearly pushed them out of the console market and into handhelds exclusively). The GBA and DS were what kept Nintendo above water last gen, and the Wii was what gave the company a second revival. Anyway, OP, it's pretty well accepted that the reason the GC did so poorly was because of a complete lack of third party software. Most 3rd party games would come out on PS2 and Xbox, but it was rare for GC to get them. Nintendo and Capcom were pretty much carrying the GC by themselves. If you want to go deeper, the reason for the lack of 3rd party support was both Nintendo's arrogance (shown in both their attitude toward 3rd party publishers and their demands for licensing approval that made them unacceptably costly for a lot of publishers) as well as their decision to go with a bizarre media format.

Why are so many people trying to turn Legacy forum into System Wars 2:roll:

It wasn't a successful as some of their other consoles, but it was far from being a "disaster."

What is "Close" to a disater for you? When they are already bankrupt? They had like 4 things that held the Gamecube up, by itself would have stabbed Nintendo HARD. THere's a reason there was a Wii - Notice, GC, overreliance on FP which almost killed them, bad acts toward 3rd party started hitting them N64 gen but they didn't improve, and they changed the GC era but it was pretty much too late, restricted space CD which added to the already high Dev cost for games and how to make them on a console more powerful then the PS2, wasted support on online without actually using it, the GBplayer bombed (you really needed another CD to use it? Really?) etc. etc. They were no where close to being far from Disater.

I don't consider 21 million units sold a disaster, not even close.

I agree, the Gamecube was not a disaster...but the reason many of my friends and myself didn't use it as our main console, more or less a secondary. No online when online started getting bigger. No DVD player, and there in the begining of its life the games weren't all that impressive. NOt as many hardcore games like GTA, Halo, and no solid racing games to suck me in.

I did buy one though for the Nintendo exclusives (mario, zelda, etc) and the main main main reason to own one. Resident Evil (all of them!)

YES! RE for the win! I actually bought a Gamecube just to play RE:Remake; still one of my all time favorite games :)

Disater and Failur are 2 different things. Also Shenue and Warrior Emeraldy seriously? It was clealry a disater for Nintendo, people like you guys thinking everything was fine is why the GC just sunk so low. Most likely, most people here didn't buy a GC during its time. Also Shenmue 21 selling is good? If you are on some drugs that make you ignore things like profits, investing software sales, making up for hardware and other thing which they all failed at and would have been in the red if not for like 4 other Nintendo objects that held the Gamecube up. Selling doesn't mean crap, look at current gen with the PS3 and Sony.

This was last generation's disaster:

As to the Gamcube: Some of the best games of the last generation and sales of 21 million I'd hardly call "a disaster". 3rd place, sure, but they were far from bankrupt or anything. Metroid Prime 1 & 2, Super Mario Sunshine, Zeldas, Eternal Darkness, Star Wars: Rouge Squadron 2 & 3, StarFox games, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and especially the Resident Evil remake. Definetly some great exclusives.

Stop it just stop it. Please just stop it. Oh holy lordy what you said makes no sense. Does breath of they faith sir croc neck? Your opinion is not based on reality, reality is based on reality, numbers don't equal anything, for the cost of the GC, for a company that only had like 3 things holding up the GC, by itself, would have hurt Nin terribly. They would have been in deep red. 21 million in sales is pretty bad for what the GC was, it could have been an Xbox disater orworse if the GC was by itself and nintendo is not Ms and would not have been able to take those losses without cutting a few thing immensly. It was a disater. how can liking game on it prevent reality. It's all right there.

Failure and Disater or two different words. For Nintendo the system was a disater, in the market it was a disater, compared to the competition it was a disater, it;s support was a disater, profit? Was a disater. Failure would be the word you are looking for. This is "Disater" Spell it with me now D.I>>>S.???A:::S////T----E+++R=Disater.

That's how they spell it in EU/PAl. Just ask any PAl type person. Like here it's COLOR, there it's COLOUR Here it's Disaster, there it's Disater. Pal people until 2008 were also mentally unable to see past 50 FPS for a long time. The more you know.

But... if you live in America, which I'm assuming you do since you said "HERE it's disaster" why would you use the EU spelling, if that's really how it is?

No, I am calling you a stubborn person who has some rought edges on his brain. Some crocnecks also in many cases can't see past 50frames per second (Emeral Warrior) Emerald is also the first non-pal to not be able to see past 50fps without actually being from Europe.

So you are literally calling me the neck of a crocodile. This calls for one thing and one thing only.

No, I am calling you a stubborn person who has some rought edges on his brain. Some crocnecks also in many cases can't see past 50frames per second (Emeral Warrior) Emerald is also the first non-pal to not be able to see past 50fps without actually being from Europe.

I can't hear you over the sound of spiderman.

I'm surprised people are saying the GC did well in this thread. The console not only finished in last place in terms of sales last gen by a very large margin (ignoring the DC obviously), but it did so poorly that it nearly killed Nintendo (or at least nearly pushed them out of the console market and into handhelds exclusively). The GBA and DS were what kept Nintendo above water last gen, and the Wii was what gave the company a second revival.gameguy6700
WHAT? :? Sorry, but no. GameCube didn't nearly kill them and GBA/DS weren't the only things that kept them afloat, as Nintendo still made a profit out of that cube.

It wasn't a disaster,it's just that it didn't have as much support as the PS2.

I dunno, the PS2 and Xbox were easy to pirate while GC wasn't?

I'd say people went with the system that had the best support, DVD playback "out-of-the-box" and was the most advertised/hyped. And that happened to be the PS2 (Xbox wasn't exactly a success either, despite better graphics and some worthwhile exclusives).
