    I think the little arrows are messing with the format. I used them once and it screwed up the whole page. No idea why.

    What's an LTD tie ratio?

    Edit: Now the little arrows are gone and the format's fixed, and it doesn't say you edited. Weird.

    Wow, that makes the GBA look a bit less impressive. ODD, too, since I don't consider myself a handheld player but I've already got something like four GBA titles (plus a sealed AoS) and a good handful of original GB carts...there's gotta be something wrong with that figure.

    Who wants all the crappy licensed games that the GBA has? If they came out with better games, I'd buy more.

    Well I thought the gba numbers ltd wise would be higher, closer to the gc at least. I have 8 gba games myself. Probably only about 20-30 good gba games, the rest are ports, or rehashes imho.

    NPD is US figures only. Plus, Wal-Mart and a few other outlets aren't counted.

    I think a lot of casual gamers with GBAs only ever get a game or two, and or get used games, which obviously already have been counted.

    I think you guys are missing the point--I think that this is a sign that we all should buy another Gamecube.

    Interesting how Xbox sales are pairing with PS2 sales now. The PS2 is in a sort of limbo now with very few really interesting games scheduled for release. Nintendo brought this poor perfomance for themselves. The only game people are really expecting now for GC is a new Zelda...

    FYI the aveng was a winny guy who started crap and then whined to the admins when people would flame him back. Been gone since 2002 I belive.

    On the main topic at hand, I havent really cared about the current gen so far, but as I see it, nintendo needs some luck to pull even get back into the console game.

    I don't know if it's just me, but the Xbox seems to be the only console that has games I'm really looking forward to. I may never buy another PS2 or Gamecube game at this rate.

    Maybe Nintendo & Sony are too focused on their handhelds?

    Two words for the Nintendo Naysayers:

    DONKEY. KONGA.

    Nuff said.
    Selling collection, Atari through XBox. Send a PM with whatever games you're looking for.
