Nintendos masta’ plan

Nintendo is steadilly applying pressure to the XBOX’s starfish with an announcement yesterday of the pricing and the launch date for the Gamecube. Nintendo issued a press release with the pricing set for the Gamecube at an amazing $200 and release date of November 5th. That amounts to $100 less than the XBOX and three days ahead of Microsoft’s release date. Could this be the beginning of a launch date war as well as pricing? Doubtfull but let’s sit back and see what happens next. Thanks ozenplayer for the heads up.

REDMOND, Wash., May 21, 2001 - History’s most successful video game manufacturer today announced the U.S. suggested retail price of $199.95 for its all-new video game console, NINTENDO GAMECUBE(tm), launching November 5th.

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of what Nintendo executives describe as an "overwhelmingly positive response" from thousands of the visitors to the national Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, which ended Saturday. More than 62,000 people gathered to view the latest in interactive entertainment.

"The response to NINTENDO GAMECUBE from E3 was phenomenal," says Peter Main, executive vice president, sales and marketing, Nintendo of America Inc. "Game developers expressed over and over that our games are of unmatched quality, especially Luigi’s Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II. Pikmin also spiked interest for its incredibly unique game content and approach. This is all very exciting."

NINTENDO GAMECUBE’s November 5 launch will hit with a library of six exclusive Nintendo titles, each with a MSRP of $49.95, expanding by end-of-year with licensee games, representing a robust and diverse library with games for players of all ages.

Compatible with Game Boy® Advance, which launches in North America June 11, NINTENDO GAMECUBE delivers all-new forms of interactive fun and offers the easiest development environment to date for game creators.
