The N64 sold 33m units and had 23% of the market share, while the Gamecube sold 22m units and had 10% of the market. You're grouping them together but it's quite a significant difference really, you really think the Wii-U will be anywhere close to Gamecube bad?

And it can't be stated enough that the Gamecube was the last Nintendo console to cater towards the 'core' gamer crowd.
