Post All Gamecube production suspended...for now

From Spong:
Quote:
Nintendo of Japan has made the Dreamcast-flavoured move of halting all GameCube hardware production.

The shock move comes as prices for GameCube software and hardware, both officially and unofficially, plummet around the world with disastrous consequences.

Indeed, GameCube software is now the cheapest available for any system, often as much as 25% less expensive than the Xbox equivalent.

Whatâ₠¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s more, Nintendo has slashed the price of the GameCube hardware in the US, with the console now costing just $99.95 - thatâ₠¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a mere £62!

Sources close to Nintendo state that the GameCube is overstocked at all levels. Slower than anticipated demand over the summer has compounded this, resulting in the embarrassing decision to suspend the production lines, a possible PR disaster for the Japanese giant.

Give them some time....hopefully when people come to realise how unreliable m$ are (after all this virus fiasco) they will start to notice an increase in sales again????

As for the hardware side.....so long as we get the GBA player, Pads and the other prehethrials continue to come (who cares about online gaming...I have a pc for that!) I will be a happy bunny!

And have been known to suggest they are looking at developing software only.

Anyway, how are Nintendo making a profit on the hardware? They must be using really cheap parts.
