To anyone who feels Nintendo should have kept hold of rare... I give you 4 words "The Legend of Zelda"

Those 4 words are enough to buy a Nintendo console without thinking twice!

Wasn't enough to keep the Gamecube afloat though. The simple fact of the matter is that third party support is essential for a console's success.

Also, as far as Nuts and Bolts goes, I quite like that game - it's not as good as the '64 titles though.

Depends on your definition of "keeping afloat" I guess...the gamecube may have been in 3rd place in the "console wars" that generation, but it was still a profitable system for Nintendo.

The decline in sales was drastic at the end of the Cube's life. I was working in retail at the time, and the GameCube took up less and less shelf space until it barely had an appearance in the store. It may have been profitable in the beginning, but at the end it was dead in the water.
