Noticed a few bits of interesting news on IGNCube. First the good news. Starting 2/9/03, when purchasing a Gamecube system at participating retailers, you will recieve a free game of your choice. The listed games are Metroid Prime, Mario Party 4, Resident Evil 0, and Star Fox Adventures. Should be all the more incentive for folks to get a cube(that and the Zelda preorder promo). Now the bad news. Splinter Cell for the cube is not going to be released in March as its PS2 cousin will. Ubisoft announced it will instead be released in May and is more or less a port of the XBox version rather than a major retooling(as is being done with the PS2 version). Screen shots and movies will be shown next week. So some good news and some bad news. If I still don't have an XBox by May I guess I'll pick up SC for the cube but if I do I'll just snag the XBox edition.
