Monsters, Inc. Enters Top 10 Animated Movies List
(by Monsters, Inc. became the fastest movie ever to enter the Top 10 Animated Films of all Time list, dethroning 101 Dalmations (not taking into account inflation) and passing Beauty and the Beast on Sunday to settle in at #9 where it will continue to climb. Monsters, Inc. will likely end up settling at the #3 spot, just below Toy Story 2, when its box office run is complete.

Monsters, Inc. also holds the record for the Top 10 Animated Openings of all Time list with Toy Story 2 at #2 and Shrek at #3.

Nintendo GameCubeNintendo's GameCube Hits Store Shelves
(by Just three days after the launch of Microsoft's Xbox, Nintendo launched its new gaming console yesterday - the GameCube. While the GameCube opened to less fanfare than the Xbox (in part because of Microsoft's massive $500 marketing budget), sales were still strong on Sunday. Like with the Xbox, many stores have sold out of all console units with more shipping on a regular basis through Christmas.

Nintendo's biggest problem is the lack of games it currently has available for GameCube. Only nine games were available on Sunday as follows:

All-Star Baseball 2002
Batman: Vengeance
Luigi's Mansion
Madden NFL 2002
NHL Hitz 20-02
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader
Super Monkey Ball
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
Wave Race: Blue Storm

Nintendo's advantage is that the GameCube sells at $100 less than both the Xbox and Playstation 2, in part because the system focuses exclusively on gaming and not other elements like doubling as a DVD player.
