They got better on that front, then, and I retract the statement for that console.
It was a big deal when it happened with the original Xbox, mostly because it was just under four years after the console's launch. Of course, that meant it was only the second-shortest-lived platform of that generation!
For comparison, Nintendo's last GameCube release was Twilight Princess in 2006, and their final Wii game was Kirby's Dream Collection, a couple of months before the Wii U's release. (Slight oddity there: the Nintendo-published Pandora's Tower, released in 2011 in Japan, didn't get an international release until 2013, but XSEED handled that in the US. More odd: there was an official Wii game released in 2015 that wasn't a licensed game, Just Dance, or Skylanders.)
