Gamecube in September!Nintendo Executive VP Atsuo Asada revealed that Gamecube is on track to ship in the US in September and Europe next spring. Reportedly the hardware is also on schedule to launch in Japan in July.
If by chance the Gamecube makes it to the market in September and the XBOX takes as long as November to show up on shelves, the holiday season shopping will be a mixed bag for the launch of the XBOX. Could this be the beginning of an even bigger console war with Nintendo actually getting into the ring this early in the year to battle with both the PS2 and the XBOX? or will Nintendos reputation proceed them into the marketplace and cause the consumer to be cautious about purchases. Only time will tell.
