European GameCube to feature optional 60Hz display and RGB SCART!?

IGN is reporting that Nintendo will make a handful of modifications to the GameCube hardware before its release in Europe. In a move that can hardly fail to surprise, Nintendo will be offering full-screen 50Hz PAL and even 60Hz NTSC support. Another potential addition is an RGB SCART connector. Says IGN, "Since progressive scan TVs are pretty much non-existent in Europe, you'll be able to activate the 60 Hz mode by holding down the B-button during boot-up, which is normally reserved for 480p." IGN's sources claim that Rogue Leader is the first game to include a confirmed 60Hz mode. Someone pinch me. Related Feature - May 3rd, £150, GameCube
