Nintendo sells 300,000 GameCubes in three days

Says terrorist attack won't affect US launch

Nintendo flogged 300,000 GameCube's in the three days following its launch in Japan on Friday.

That's two thirds of the 450,000 units it shipped for the console's debut.

The US release is set for 18 November and the company still expects a successful launch in spite of the recent terrorist attack which is likely to knock consumer confidence.

Nintendo expects to sell 1.1 million GameCube's in the US by the end of the year. ®
