    6 million units in warehouses, which equals their worldwide sales. Not a good story. I severely doubt they're going to double their installed base 2 years before the console is due for replacement

    Even at 9 million in sales, with 6 million units sitting in warehouses it doesn't look very good.

    Well, it could be a very nice warehouse for all we know. Nice orderly stacks of palletized boxes, manicured floors that shine like marble. [​IMG]

    Seriously though, think of the time of year. Summer is the dog days of console sales. It's not a bad idea to sit on your product and stockpile for the quickly approaching Christmas selling season. They'll need a bunch in reserve when they drop the price to $99-$129.

    Hmmm...I wouldn't want to be a GC. No offense to Nintendo or anything but Gamecube has a small disc. [​IMG]

    Didn't they also post profits of $95 million for the quarter?

    Where did the profits come from though? Probably mostly from GBA(SP).

    As the Nintendo defenders keep ignoring, Nintendo's overall profits have nothing to do with the success of the GameCube

    The Cube itself is bombing, and this late in the game that's unlikely to change, even if they cut it to $9.99. For a company with 2 arms (and revenue streams) it may be time to cut off the diseased arm to save the body

    Of the 3 console makers, I'd say that right now, MS is probably making the least in terms of profits from their games division, yet they're not in as much danger as Nintendo? Explain that to me, please.
