The GameCube partly failed because Sony and Microsoft were selling superior Hardware and the fact that they were also DVD Players didn’t help Nintendo at all. The last reason the Nintendo GameCube failed. The GameCube was still a amazing system with some awesome games. My personal favorite console of all time.
Despite making a small profit for Nintendo, the GameCube lost Nintendo sizable market share, finishing in third place in terms of hardware sales, which has led to it being characterized as a commercial failure.
You forgot Skies of Arcadia, Paper Mario 2 Thousand Year Door, F-Zero GX, Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart Double Dash, 1080 Avalance, Waverace Blue Storm, Wario World, Super Smash Bros Melee, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Assault, Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness since those are now the rarest Gamecube
While acknowledging that the GameCube is more powerful than the PS2, Matthew said he still prefers the PlayStation because of its games. It’s important to note, however, that Nintendo has a loyal following for many of its proprietary games.

It was to combat piracy, reduce costs, avoid licensing to the DVD Forum, and reduce load times. They only held 1.5GB though, so did not store as much information as DVD’s. Theft.
The Wii U didn’t know its place in the market. It wasn’t portable, but it wasn’t a stationary console. It wasn’t super innovative, but it wasn’t the same hardware as before. It wasn’t inexpensive, but it wasn’t as expensive as the other consoles.

Compared to the PlayStation, sure. It was a relative failure. Despite not selling nearly as well as the PlayStation, it still sold more than the Saturn and was a very popular console in its heyday (at least in the US). If you wanted to experience local multiplayer on console, the N64 was the console to go to.
The N64 game library contains a wealth of hidden gems, and the console itself came in all kinds of cool variants. However, the rarest version of the Nintendo 64 distanced itself from its roots upon its original release: the Hyundai Comboy 64.
Prices more than likely will slowly go up, but can’t guarantee it. Some people play to speedrun the game and since some communities do not allow emulation, it’s the real deal or nothing. I wouldn’t sell them. Those are really good games and you may regret it in the future.
Nostalgia sells, and demand drives prices. That’s pretty much how it goes across the board. Every time there’s a surge in game prices, it usually correlates to the generation that had the console in their childhood hitting the disposable income age.
By a long shot, the original Xbox was more powerful than the PS2. It was the weakest out of all three consoles, but it had the games to sell. It was weaker than the other consoles (because it’s Sony after all) but since they had exclusives and it was the second console of Sony, it sold well.
In recent history though, Playstation has had much better games than Xbox, but Xbox multiplayer is better and multiplayer is king! PS2 did have God of War and Metal Gear solid, but neither of those matched up to the impact Halo had. PS2 never had a game that could top Halo and every other game was also for the Xbox.
Gamecube was the most powerful but once people decide something they stick with it. Even if you go by the bare minimum of speed Nintendo Gamecube run a 485 Megahertz and Xbox ran a 733 megahehertz. Plus the Xbox had a 8GB HDD which ended up being quite revolutionary for videogame consoles at the time this was new.
