Gamecube Vs XBOXThe battle for consumer cash for the Christmas season will be even tougher this year with the US launch of Nintendos Gamecube which has been placed in November right along side the projected launch for the XBOX. The Japanese launch of Nintendos next generation Gamecube console also has been delayed until September. The system was originally scheduled to appear in Japan in July, but the two month delay is according to Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi, to prevent a repeat of system shortages suffered by Sony during the PlayStation2 launch. With both heavy hitters set to debut the same month, Microsoft has to start upping the consumer awareness of the XBOX in order to sway them from the Nintendo machine. Someone somewhere is sweating very badly now... but which side is it?
