Nintendo kicks GameCube while its down, delays Zelda… again

In case you missed it during the flurry of Wii news today, Nintendo announced that Zelda: Twilight Princess will be delayed on GameCube until December 11, three weeks after the Wii launch. I think it’s obvious why, but I also think the move is bush league. I’ll be getting the Wii version for sure, but I’m also an advocate for publishing content in as many cost effective ways as as a consumer can use it. I’d argue releasing both version on the same day would actually increase respect for the company, thus securing future revenues to offset any potential cannibalism between the GameCube and Wii.
