Goldeneye for PS3 or 360? “Never say never,” says Activision

Activision’s Julian Widdows has said that, while it’s unlikely it will happen, the possibillty of a PS3 or 360 version of Goldeneye isn’t entirely out of the question.

“We would really hope that everyone who wants to play it will go and play it this year,” Widdows, who’s executive producer on the Wii reboot, told Videogamer.

“We’ve spent so much time and effort, personal time and effort… You know, kids have been born! There’s a list of GoldenEye babies somewhere!

“This is the console we’ve made it for.”

But hold on. There is a very unlikely, but still small chance of it appearing on HD consoles.

“Never say never,” he added. “Who knows? Things happen, don’t they, with big publishers? But for the time being it’s all about the Wii, and that’s really how we hope people will go and experience it, because that’s how it’s been built. It’s not been built for the PS3 and Xbox 360, it’s been built for this.”

Goldeneye releases on November 2 in Europe.

  • Goldeneye 64 was nearly on rails, lacked multiplayer

    In a GDC Europe post-mortem of N64 classic Goldeneye 007, as reported by IGN, director Martin Hollis revealed a troubled development history for the system-seller. Highlights include the team building an on-rails shooter because it didn’t know what kind of controller the then-new console would have, and chucking the famous multiplayer in at the last […]
