From Planetgamecube.com's Mailbag
Once the Broadband Adapter and Modem Adapter come out, will it be possible to link up GameCubes like the Xbox with Halo?

Jonathan Says: YES. At the Nintendo roundtable meeting on Wednesday, two GameCubes were on display linked directly to each other via their broadband adapters and a cable. I highly doubt you can connect directly through the 56K modem adapter. The only game we know to use the direct-link feature is a Phantasy Star Online trading card game that Yuji Naka created just to convince Nintendo EAD that a portable LCD monitor and direct-linking could let GameCube owners set up small LANs anywhere they want. Sega still has not officially announced that PSO card game, but it was later on display in Nintendo's booth on the LCD monitors.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!

This, along with the HDD, were the two ideas I actually thought of as good in the xbox.

Still won't buy it though... the xbox, I mean. :D
