Breaking News:Nintendo ends GameCube support

Nintendo of America's Perrin Kaplan has confirmed that the company has ceased production of its last generation console, the GameCube, and will not release any further games for it.

Spong reports that whilst Nintendo still sees a place in the market for its struggling last-gen machine, manufacturing efforts have now shifted over to the likes of Wii, DS and Game Boy Advance.

did it EVER have support??

What's up with companies dropping support for stuff as soon as their new products hit? Ignoring 20,000,000 consoles is kinda stupid.

I think the best thing Nintendo learned from the Cube is that robust first AND third party support is crucial for success...something they're already applying to the Wii. Well, the Cube had an OK run...not a great one, but there were some great games: Resident Evil 4, Windwaker (Well, I liked it), Twilight Princess, Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart: DD, Paper Mario, Pikmin 1 & 2, Luigi's Mansion, Metroid Prime, Rogue Squadron, and many more.
