    Originally, this game was set to be released on PS2 at the very end of March, and on GCN not until May.

    Well, it's just been cofirmed that it's being released a month and a half early on Gamecube (April 8th, which is 13 days away).

    From what I've heard, it's pretty much a carbon copy of the Xbox version (graphics as good as the Xbox version, as opposed to the PS2 version), plus, it has a better framerate and quicker loadtimes than either of the other two versions.

    I'll be busy with Zelda for a while, though (I should be getting it within the next 1 or 1 days), and once I can get a bit more money together, it'll definitely be my next purchase.

    This is good news for Gamecube owners.

    Here's a link, btw.

    I find it hard to believe that the Gamecube version will be as good as the XBox version.

    1: there's a heck of al ot less space on each disk to put the information on so that means sacrificing the little things in gameplay or just graphics in general a bit.

    2: controlling for it will be a bit more difficult with the GCN controller.

    That is just my skepticism. I'd love to be proven wrong!

    Loved the game for XBox. Also would love to see it do as well on the Gamecube, though!

    I wouldn't buy it being better than Xbox either, that sounds like spin to me. But, SC is a great game no matter what platform it is on, enjoy it on the GC!

    Seeing what UBI did with SC on the PS2, I would guess that SC on the GC will look pretty damn close to SC on the Xbox. In the video IGN has it looks like some of the real-time lighting is scaled back, but for some reson I thought the textures looked better than Xbox. In any regard, the video looks pretty damn good.

    I am anxious to get this game. I only have a gamecube for now, and I think it looks pretty cool!

    Heh, I'm very very interested actually Dave, and I do appreciate the heads up. I would've posted, but with my petty cash at absolute zero I am not gonna be able to get this for some time. And I want to pick up Skies of Arcadia first.

    When you have a girlfriend, phone bills, no job, and are supporting a habit for DVDs, video games, computer games, AND board games, some stuff just has to make that chop [​IMG].

    Eventually though, I do intend to snag it.

    I wouldn't worry about space.

    Good developers are able to compress games in unimagineable.

    Some companies, like Capcom, are too lazy, so they released Resident Evil 1 and RE0 on 2 discs each, but then, some developers, like Factor 5 are siomply amazing.

    Did you know that all of Rogue Leader is little more than 200 megs? That's it.

    I'm not sure how well Splinter Cell is compressed, but either way I wouldn't worry about it at all. From what I've heard, graphically, it's just as good as the Xbox version.
