    That's where all the Gamecubes sitting dormant on Japanese shelves went!

    Camp that comment was both funny and really sad at the sametime.

    The reason that nobody in Japan bought any GameCubes is because of Super Smash Brothers Melee, the closest game to Mario or Zelda besides Luigi's Mansion, wasn't available. When it comes out (unless it already did) and when Mario and Zelda come out, they will sell more.

    They should have just pushed the Japanese launch closer to the American launch and split the consoles then. We would have more for us and they wouldn't lose money since the Japanese haven't been buying them.
