GameCube is 10 in the UK
The console launched to a price-cut at £129 in both purple and black amidst excitement selling 75,000 in its first two days on sale, beating the PlayStation 2. The launch featured titles such as Luigi’s Mansion (the sequel due out on 3DS this quarter), Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 and Star Wars Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader but alas, no Mario.
In total, the GameCube made a total of 21.74 million sales in sales, just behind Microsoft’s original Xbox and brought about fresh innovation for Luigi’s Mansion, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Pikmin, Pikmin 2, and Animal Crossing.
So, Happy Birthday GameCube!
