Good news for the Nintendo fan boys. Over the holidays of 2003 Gamecube sales rose from its previous year over 70 percent. Over all Nintendo’s Gamecube showed a 35 percent growth in sales throughout the year. Sony actually dropped 25 percent and Xbox showed no real change as far as total sales go.
While the price drop and bundle packages are obviously helping out, the question remains does Nintendo have the titles coming out? 2004 already has people thinking this is the year Xbox will blow up with its release lineup. It will be interesting to see the console wars of 2004. All the while, we benefit from the big three sparring it out. Well our bank accounts don’t, but you get the idea.
