Rumor: GoldenEye 007 peripherals outed by GameStop

GameStop has listed, and subsequently pulled, a listing for GoldenEye themed controllers for the Wii revamp.

The golden gun, shown here by D’toid, shows a peripheral that holds the Wii remote and nunchuck, with a shiny gold classic controller as another option.

Listed for release on October 26 along with the game, the price point is $69.99, suggesting a bundle.

However, since GameStop has pulled the listing, we’ll have to take D’toids word for it. Still, we’ve mailed Activision for comment on this, as well as the date.

GoldenEye 007, along with the peripherals, was outed by a survey earlier in the month, before it was officially confirmed during Nintendo’s E3 press conference.

It is to be released on DS as well as Wii.
