So what will EA have playable at E3? How many titles? PGC offers you only one of the two answers to these questions so far...
Electronic Arts has informed Planet GameCube that they will only have one playable GameCube title this year at E3. They couldn't say specifically which title, but they did say that it would be coming from EA Sports.
So which is it? Well, what could EA have in the works for GC??

Will the blockbuster title be making a comeback? Check here to get the juice.
According to IGNcube, sources at Nintendo of America are saying that Super Smash Bros 2 will be at E3 in playable form. In addition, the game is supposedly farther along than we thought and could be a launch title. The first game was a huge success. Nothing is really known about SSB2 at this time. If you want the low-down on what we (I) hope will be in the game check out the Ultra Smash Bros: Online Frenzy dream game special.

Bloomberg reports on Nintendo's GBA and GCN situation in a fair manner.
Bloomberg's report, "Nintendo to Use New Game Boy to Fight Against Sony, Microsoft" is a very good read. Despite considering the GCN inferior due to lack of DVD capablilities, (apples and oranges, people) this statement is countered by many quotes from optimistic analysts! Maybe not all of the analysts have jumped to conclusions!

Although mainly about the latest N64 game (Animal Forest), Tendo Box slips in a little info about GCN news.
The bulk of the story is about Animal Planet, which is apparently coming out in the US, but the end reveals some interesting information. Namco is busy with its GameCube love.... good sign for you fighting fans! Camelot is also working hard on the GameCube. Hopefully we'll see something from both companies at E3.

It seems that every Nintendo fan's best mainstream media friend has been spotted once more, spreading the love the Big N so desperately needs...
While it must be acknowledged that the Nintendo bashing articles that were seen so much about a month ago seem to have cooled here comes our boy Steven Kent again talking up the Big N in a mainstream publication.
To get a feel for this piece one has to look no farther than the opening paragraph:

Despite the rumors, Camelot has confirmed that the "secret" page is nothing more than a fluke.
According to Camelot's latest web update, the secret "Coming Soon" page is nothing more than a vestigial page from the Mario Golf 64 unveiling. I guess we all just got our hopes up for nothing! D'oh!

If you're one of the older fellers here and had an Atari 2600...or have played it, you gotta see this.
As being one of the older folks here at Planet, I embrace the classics. Especially the Atari 2600. My first system. I'll take anyone in Pac-Man or Space Invaders. You gotta use the reset button multi fire cheat! I could play Donkey Kong for hours. A little switch from an N64 or a GBA for that matter.

The best-selling point-and-click adventure is coming to Nintendo's handheld. Check out these graphics!
Thanks to the scoop by IGN Pocket, we now know that this gorgeous game is being ported to GBA. It will retain its pre-rendered backgrounds and animation-style sprites, and presumably the dialogue is still there in either text or voice, but not much else is known about the game just yet. We've gone... Read more...

Looks like GBA kiosks have arrived to US Toys R Us's. Time to be a Toys R Us kid...like right NOW! We want to know if you've seen one!
Your local Toys R Us could have a GBA or two all ready for you to play Mario Advance as you are reading this!
Collectively all 6 of Planet GameCube's readers have just blazed away on their razor scooters.
Another interesting thing this story mentioned was that Toys R Us isn't doing presales. Supposedly because of prior PS2 issues. Get ready to camp out at your local Toys R Us...that is, if you haven't pre-sold your GBA.

Shining Force coming to a GameCube near you? Ahh...the suspense!
Head over to the above website, and you'll see this page...
Interesting enough alone. Max said it looks like a golf ball on a tee. But what I didn't understand was why it was next to the hole. I think it's something else.
But this is where it gets more interesting. If you check the source code to the page it looks like this...
