Nintendo resumes production of GameCube

GameCube consoles are once again rolling off the production lines in Japan as global demand for the system finally outstrips the backlog of units which had built up at Nintendo's warehouses.

Recent price-drops combined with the roll-out of key software titles for the machine in all three major markets have given the GameCube new life in the run up to Christmas, and the production lines which had been silent since the company called a moratorium on building new hardware units earlier this year have now rolled back into action.

When Nintendo halted production of the Cube, many sources assumed the worst for the console; however, it's still not clear just how large the backlog of units that had built up at the company's warehouses was, so it's hard to say how seriously the console maker were pressured into taking this decision.
