Can Gamecube End with a Victory?

Here is an interesting article that I found at They ask the perplexing question, can the Gamecube end with a victory? They highlight the numerous titles coming out for the system and discuss the lack of support for the original XBOX. Here is an excerpt from the article:

While the Xbox on a world-wide market count may have exceeded the Gamecube in console sales, it should be noted that the battle is not over yet. With Microsoft discontinuing the console, the real question is will Gamecube be able to surpass the Xbox in the end?

Xbox has currently sold 22 Million units world-wide; Gamecube at 21 Million (Source). While Gamecube sales have been really sloppy in Japan, the month of July saw 44,000 units sold in North America. Of course it’s well known that the Gamecube for the most part of 2006, has seen a lack of new titles. This is obviously due to projects shifting to the Wii.

On the other hand Gamecube does have one final battle ahead when Baten Kaitos Origins is released and gamers head into the big fourth quarter. With third-party titles like Tomb Raider: Legend, Fifa Soccer 07, Splinter Cell: Double Agent and Need for Speed: Carbon, Nintendo will be dishing out Super Paper Mario and DK Bongo Blast to compliment the fourth quarter.
