GameCube on: the 'Cube is officially not dead -- yet

Ryan Block, @ryan

Yes, indeed reports of the GameCube's death were highly exaggerated. Last we left off in the soap opera saga of Nintendo's last-gen console, we heard from a rep in the UK what sounded like news that the N wasn't finished with it yet. Well, good news Cubers not ready (or able) to step up to a Wii, we've finally wrangled an official statement from Nintendo:

"We are continuing to manufacture and sell Nintendo GameCube, which is an ideal entry-level value system and has a strong library of games. The continuing appetite for new games is best demonstrated by strong sales of the GameCube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which is one of the top 10 industry titles. And, Nintendo GameCube still enjoys solid third-party support."

Alright, you heard it, you can still enjoy GC console availability for the time being before they finally scorch that earth. Now stop staring and move on with your life. That means you, Paul.
