ANOTHER conference

A Nintendo Press Conference is being held next week in New York.,

Nintendo have announced that they will be hosting a Press Conference in New York City, America, next Tuesday. The Conference will be held at the posh New York City restaurant, The Four Seasons.

The programme is set to contain the following areas:
- Economic Assessment of the year 2002
- Advertisement Hardware
- Forecasts Marketing of the year 2003
- Presentation of Line-Up of the year 2003

It is unknown what other subjects will be discussed but it could be the announcing of a new game, either ones previously speculated such as Pok?mon or Pikmin 2, or a completly new game. It could also be the 'Megaton' announcement rumoured a long time ago and never surfaced. Whatever it is, Cube-Europe will sure tell you!

Should be interesting. Obvouisly, the sites are linking this to Megaton, but i wouldnt get your hopes up about that.

Hmmmm...I hope a new GC add on will come out improving the Cubes performance. Just a small boost in power will make it powerful enough to create any game they want. The Cube is almost the perfect console, it just needs some more power to take away the almost.

The GC has plenty if power no doubt. What I think it may need is a disc with a little more storage capacity. Something at least 4.7 GB's like a full size DVD.

so third-party can put more FMV ? The actual GC disc seem alright to me. More storage capacity seem useless knowing most game using more than 2gig are moslty for cut-scene.

There isn't a need for that. Factor 5 has develop a new DIVX compression tool for GC, and the disc can hold a two hours movie. So developer that uses a lot of video can benefit and dont need to use a second disc.

Well, they had it:

- The First ever online game for the GameCube in Europe, Phantasy Star Online from Sega, will launch on March 7th 2003. Finally, the GameCube's European online debut has been announced. Prices are not yet known, and the date the actual modems will go online have not been announced either. But as soon as we have this information, you'll be the first to know about it! There's sure to be more online software to be launched after this debut, so stay tuned!

- Over 80 new NINTENDO GAMECUBE games launching in 2003. We have plenty of fantastic games to look forward to this year including - The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, 1080? Avalanche, Resident Evil 0, Metroid Prime, F-Zero, and of course Mario Kart!

- Over 60 new Game Boy Advance games launching in 2003 Nintendo haven't forgotten about the handheld wonder, in fact, with the announcement of the SP, it's just got a whole lot more attention! With big titles such as Golden Sun 2, Advance Wars 2, Super Monkey Ball jr (Infogrames), Formula One, and Need For Speed, you can be rest assured that there is plenty of life in that GBA of yours yet!
