from computerandvideogames.com ... no surprise really "15:47 Nope, it's not another mistranslation - according to a report in the German press, Acclaim's CEO Rod Cousens has revealed the company is to drop support for Nintendo's GameCube console. Cousens said: "Why are we to develop games for platforms that do not supply appropriate yields? We still support PS2 and Xbox, but Nintendo? No, not in the foreseeable future." A spokeman at Acclaim's UK division confirmed the story. "We've tried to focus on doing specific PS2 titles and specific Xbox and GameCube titles, but the state the market's been in at the moment it hasn't really been viable. "We're getting increasing negativity at retail just in pushing GameCube products. The reports we get from retailers are that the machine's not selling, they're not going to stock it, and they're only going to stock the top three to five games, and they're all going to be licensed or first party. "This makes it increasingly difficult for us to make it viable to do any GameCube games. The main problem is, just looking across Europe, all the main territories that we deal with, the hardware sales and software sales just don't make it viable for us to keep going with the 'Cube. "There are some titles that will be published between now and Christmas on the 'Cube - XGRA and Urban Freestyle Soccer will still be released. But as I say, it's almost that the decision's been made for us by the market."
