Nintendo plans to cut the cost of GameCube to 18,800 yen in Japan as of 3rd June, the company has announced today. The new price point translates to roughly £105 or €165, which seems staggeringly low until you remember how little the Cube actually costs elsewhere. With a lot of big-name titles on the way for Nintendo, sales of the Cube are expected to pick up in Japan, and the new price is part of the company's offensive on its own back yard, if you like.
