The Nintento Gamecube launched in Japan on September 14, 2001. With the terrorist attack that happened on the 11th, not everybody was enthusiastic on the day of the launch so it wasn't the big party Nintendo hoped for. Still, the 500,000 Gamecubes flew off the shelves. Almost all of them were gone the first day.
While you can't get a Gamecube in America yet, you can try them out. Nintendo is setting up Gamecube Clubs across America. These clubs are gonna have Gamecubes, 32-inch HDTV's, surround sound, live DJs and some serious dancing action. Check out the schedule:
