Which Nintendo Console Launch Is The Best? An Overly Elaborate Analysis

Yesterday Nintendo laid out their Wii U launch plans in detail. How's it stack up against it's past console launches?

The story is too old to be commented.

Gamecube was the last good Nintendo console which had a good launch . That's when Nintendo wasn't relying on gimmicks and they had a proper controller. The best controller they've ever made.

Oy. It must be easy to be so short-sighted that you can judge consoles by virtue of their general play style.

I really wonder if you even know the meaning of the word gimmick.

I disagree, mostly because I hate the GameCube and its controller. N64 was the last Nintendo console I didn't regret buying.

I agree. The Gamecube was the last Nintendo console I could actually sit down with and have a proper gaming session without having all these stupid gimmicks shoved into the games.

I wouldn't say the best controller they've made, but definitely the last good console they made.

The Wii had some solid titles come and go, but it definitely had a lackluster console launch when compared to others. Also didn't help how so many consumers got easily bored with Wii Sports.

I got a Wii simply because Twilight Princess was a launch title, and it was such a great game.

The Wii launched with TP. Wii had the best launch. GC had a higher number of quality games than the Wii at launch, but a Nintendo console needs to try really hard if it is to beat a Nintendo console launching with Zelda.

"The NES' pack-ins forced kids into a real 8-bit Sophie's choice"

That line cracked me up... I agree with most of what the author had to say. Fun read.
