Cube modem region-free

That’s a relief

Despite rumours that the Japanese GameCube modem might not function alongside US consoles, US-based importer NCS has confirmed that the modem is fully compatible, and quite capable of playing the Cube incarnation of Phantasy Star Online outside of its home country. Sales of PSO Episodes I & II in Japan have been quite strong - more than 60,000 units went in the first week, although just over half of these were without the modem peripheral, suggesting that even the hardcore is waiting for the broadband adapter.
