Rare “long past” GoldenEye rehash deal

Still waiting for GoldenEye on WiiWare or XBLA? Sounds as though you should be pulling the flag down to half-mast.

“That was some time ago, my friend,” said a Rare rep, answering a question on the status of a revamp for the shooter in the latest edition of Scribes.

“Fate was against us that day. Destiny conspired to raise the hurdles even as we attempted to clear them, resulting in unpleasant groinal injury.

“I suspect we’re long past the stage where an agreement was on the cards, but you never know. Stranger things have happened… somewhere… probably.”

That’s one scratched off the list, then. XBLA GoldenEye will just have to exist in your fevered dreams.

    To bad the XBLA screens that where released last year where so good.
    Maybe one day when they have a lot more money from a new ip, they can come back to it.

    A deal between Nintendo, Microsoft and who ever owned the Bond IP at that time (Activision or EA?). Yeah, that was an impossibility from the start.

    They’d need to do a helluva lot of reworking to make this playable to todays standard. I wasn’t particularly impressed when it came out, no way am I crawling along at the speed the original ran at while the crappy AI soends a good half of the game running directly into walls.

    “A deal between Nintendo, Microsoft and who ever owned the Bond IP at that time (Activision or EA?). Yeah, that was an impossibility from the start.”

    Nintendo was the publisher of Goldeneye so it would be fat chance in hell that we will see this on any system other than Nintendo.
