Should the GameCube have sold better?

The Gamecube is in the bottom two worst selling consoles of all time. Do you think that it should have sold better? Yes? No? Leave your comments here.

Yeah, it's in the bottom two. I've read it and heard it quite a lot.

it wasnt that bad nes_fan

there where some awesome games like Paper Mario TYD, F-Zero GX, Windwaker, etc.

if it should have sold better, thats up to what the consumer wants. I think its a great system though.

I wish it would have sold better. It had lots of great games on it that I STILL play. I'm really not to sure why it didn't sell. Maybe because of the small discs?

EDIT: Nintendo still made money off of the Gamecube also so I guess you could consider it a success. And neither the Gamecube nor the Dreamcast are the worst two selling consoles of all time. Those awards go to 70s 80s and 90s consoles that nobody cared about.

Actually, I don't think it was the dreamcast... it was something else. My mistake. Nes_Fan, the Gamecube wasn't really very bad. It had some bad games, sure, but it also had a lot of great games, like metroid, mario kart double dash, super smash bros melee, and lots of others.

The Sega 32X and the Apple Pippen were the worst-selling two, with the 32X only selling 200,000 units, and the Pippen selling an unthinkably low 42,000.
The GameCube is nowhere near the worst-selling console of all time.
21.74 million copies sold? That doesn't sound too shabby.

Oh yeah, sorry about that. But the gamecube is one of the worst selling consoles of the most mainstream ones.
