Will Gamecube and Xbox be in as much demand as the PS2 was????

I was just wondering if the Gamecube and the Xbox will be in the same amount of demand that the PS2 is?

if you want my opinion.. awww helllll nahhhh, there will never be anything a crazy and wild as that in the lanch of x box and game cube, they will not even compare at all, if any of you saw the launch in europe, someone posted a video of it a few weeks ago, now that was love for a console, i mean you couldnt hear a damn thing, everyone was screamin there heads off in glee, no no no they will not compare
\"So are you going to kill her off?\"
Are you insane! I love her character, she stays.
\"The only thing loves done is put you in this position, I say kill her off!\"
Yeah, but you say a lot of things..
and how does that work....  You\'re a bicycle..

if you wants my opinion, its going to be no!  Why?  X-box is new, people probably haven\'t heard of it and even if they do, they are not sure if it really a promising system.  Lunchcube, well, people going to buy a $2.00 lunchbox mistaken gamecube lunchbox.  That\'s the reason why the lunchcube doesn\'t sells well.  People bought the wrong kind.  and 2nd, lunchcube won\'t have lots of third parties games!  and 1 or 2 launch titles won\'t do it!  unless they do delayed which is even worst!

No

Gamecube:
1) only a little bit more powerful than PS2
2) not as much hype
3) there are going to be more

X-box:
1) many many many people hate microsoft
2) there are going to be more
3) Bill Gates is the Devil!!! (nobody really realigious would but it!)

The Xbox launch won\'t. Because, first time console launches for a company are never as big as the follow up console. This applied with the original PS even.

The GC may be as big. But maybe not. It depends on how many people are bitter about the N64 basically sucking, \'cept for a few games.

Not to mention, you have to realize part of the launch "success" was due to the hype and shortage of systems, causing a demand.

I thought Nintendo fanboys were supposed to be immature,I guess you just proved that theory wrong.

2nd, lunchcube won\'t have lots of third parties games!

Know the system before you bash it.It has pratically every big name third party developer there is.

Capcom,Konami, Namco, EOR,Acclaim,EA,Midway,Habro,Infogrames,3DO,Ubi Soft, THQ, Take-Two, Paradigm Entertainment ,Factor 5,and Activision.
I won\'t even mention NIntendo\'s phenominal first and second parties. Those names,are the best in the business.nintendo has plenty of third-party support this time around, you Sony idiots cannot use that against them this time,its now officially useless.

Quote
and 1 or 2 launch titles won\'t do it!

I know!Thats why their going to have 10 launch titles from 1st and 2nd party developers alone.With third parties,that number will most likely increase to over 20.

1.How immature is that?
2.They changed the name a long time ago,you should udpate your ignorant signature now girl.
3.You don\'t know **** about GameCube,and yet you constantly talk thrash about it.Your not making Nintendo look bad, your just making yourself look stupid.Its time to shut up now.

Back to the topic-I doubt it.Anythig is possible but I seriously don\'t think they can do it.Especially not Glitch-Box.

I think both will be bigger than PS2\'s.  Why?  Well, all I\'m going off of is the fact that the electonics boutique and the game fellas near me were taking down names and a 10 dollar depoisit for now.  So far, EB has taken 63 pre-orders for X-Box, and 37 for Gamecube.  Add to that, Gamestop has stopped taking preorders because they are both in huge demand.  They are going to wait and get prices and stuff before they let anyone else preorder.

And they\'re both still at least 9 months away.  And hype, just wait until E3, there will be hype.  Can you say Mario?

i think that  the system with the lowest price will attract the most amount of customers (i had to tell my aunt what the playstation 2 was capeable of in the future, since dreamcast looked the same but for a lower price)  also, there are many more nintendo fans than microsoft fans because microsoft is just starting, while nintendo already has an audience of their own.
IM BACK. you have a problem with that? get in the back.

Hype and frenzy is all well and good but both Nintendo and Xbox will have more systems available at launch therefore sell more systems. Now you wanna talk hype fine PS2 wins hands down but the sales will beat the PS2\'s.

I don\'t see the big deal. Even if they beat the PS2 launch, they will suffer the same fate as the PS2 launch did afterwards. Lack of games after the launch, and launch games being less then expected.

It always takes time before we see the full power of a system, so I really could care less about how the launch of a system is.

Though, another Mario sure would be nice..:)
