We reported translated news of Disney Sports coming to GameCube from EA. Electronic Arts doesn't know anything about it, which begs the question...

Following our report on the “Disney sports” title, Computer & Videogames got in touch directly with EA Europe. "We’ve heard absolutely nothing to that effect," a spokesperson told C&VG.

C&VG goes on to say that currently the only confirmed Gamecube Disney game is the joint Capcom and Nintendo Mickey Mouse project shown for the first time at E3.

Big news folks! Tecmo’s official website has just posted a poll asking what console people would most like to see Ninja Gaiden on! ROCK THAT VOTE!!!

The other day, we posted about the possibility of Ninja Gaiden coming to GameCube. Originally, the game was announced for Playstation 2 but now Tecmo is apparently undecided as to which system it should bring the game to. This is now evidenced by a poll that has appeared on Tecmo’s website, asking readers to vote on which video game console they would like to see the new Ninja Gaiden appear on.

Reports have said yes and no to this. Now we have confirmation straight from Squaresoft!

Final Fantasy XI is regarded as the next big thing in online gaming to many people. Previous reports have either claimed that it will be exclusive to PS2 and PCs (like VII and VIII,) or it might be coming to another console as well. Now, thanks to Game Spot, we have confirmation that Square "will release it across other consoles in the future" straight from the creator of the FF Series, Hironobu Sakaguchi.

IGNCube's interview with Perrin Kaplan sheds a little (emphasis on little!) light on the color situation ...

While remaining as cagey as ever, IGNCube does manage to wrangle one little tidbit of information from Perrin Kaplan in their interview ...

IGNcube: Will purple be the only GameCube launch color?

Perrin: No. We are looking at a variety of options.

It's quite frankly the only answer she really didn't waffle on, but at least it's something. You can read the rest of the interview at IGNCube.

Enix of America has gone on record to comment about the Dragon Warrior on GameCube & GBA rumors.

Not too long ago, Louie the Cat & other members of PGC dissected the rumor that Dragon Quest (AKA Dragon Warrior) was coming to GameCube & Game Boy Advance. Although any one of us would love to tell you the rumors are true, they are still rather suspect and may be completely groundless.
