NINTENDO GAME CUBE CONSOLE AND CONTROLLER ARE DISPLAYED AT UNVEILING IN
A Nintendo GameCube console and its controller are displayed at an
unveiling in Tokyo August 23, 2001. Japan's Nintendo Co Ltd said on
Thursday it will delay the U.S. debut of the GameCube console by two
weeks to ensure a smooth rollout, but stuck to its target of shipping
four million of the machines by March 31. The world's second-largest
home video-game maker Nintendo plans to launch the GameCube in Japan on
September 14, when it will ship 500,000 of the machines.
