Many fans assumed that the GameCube version of Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow would drop the multiplayer online mode that has been popular in the Xbox version, but until today Ubisoft didn't have an official word on online support. Now it is official: like Rainbow Six 3, the GameCube version of Pandora Tomorrow will not have the online features that you can find in the PS2, Xbox, and PC versions.
It is easy to speculate that the reason for this cut is that GameCube's online plan has never been of primary importance to Nintendo. Nintendo has allowed certain third-party publishers like Sega to publish online games for the system, but very few have made their way into stores.
We'll have more coverage of what will be in the GameCube version soon. The GC and PS2 versions will hit stores soon, while the Xbox and PC versions are already available.
