Forums - Sales Discussion - Why did the Xbox outsell the GameCube?

I think back and I find it strange how Xbox was able to sell more than the GameCube. The first-part games seem a lot stronger on the GameCube than the Xbox, and the third-party support for the GameCube was far better than the Wii U's today. It seems that several third-party games on the Xbox were also released on the GameCube.

I hope I don't like sound I'm bashing the Xbox, because I really do think it was a great console. But what was the reason for gamers chosing the Xbox over the GameCube?

Well, in terms of profitability the XBox is the biggest console failure ever, but Halo did really help it sell more than the GameCube.
