Nintendo has again pushed back the US launch of its GameCube console and will have only two games on sale at its launch.
Previously pencilled in for 5 November, it will now launch on 18 November, ten days after the launch of Microsoft's rival X-box and several months after its original date.
Only two Nintendo-designed GameCube games, Luigi's Mansion and Wave Racer, will be available on launch day. A third, Pikmin, will follow later in the month, with a raft of sports games available by the end of the year from Acclaim, Electronic Arts and Midway, plus LucasArts' Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II.
Nintendo is yet to explain the delay, saying only that the new scheduled date means it launches immediately before the US Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
The Japanese games giant said it would ship 700,000 machines on day one, and 1.1 million units by the end of the year.
Last year, Sony failed to make enough PlayStation 2 consoles to meet initial demand.
Nintendo said it remained on track to launch in Japan on 14 November and in Europe early next year.
