    Yay!! Do we have the 'hottest game of 2008' already ? :)

    What's the betting the arcade title will be better than the new game :D


    Added to Banjo - and I'm going to be a very happy bunny.

    This is just a rumour right now. In fact, the rumor is it was coming but Nintendo nixed it at the last minute. Don't get too excited.

    Thanks for ruining my day. I don't have a 360 and knowing that 'Goldeneye' is on a system I will never buy just kills me. Please come to the Wii, please!!!
    I do have it on the N64, but it would be so much more convinent on the Virtual Console.

    A game that was published by EA on Nintendo's platform, developed by Rare (now Microsoft owned), and the license to which is now owned by Columbia (who is Sony-owned IIRC).

    Correct me if I'm mistaken but wouldn't Microsoft essentially have to go through Sony, Nintendo, AND EA before they'd be able to publish it on XBLA?

    That makes me cast doubts. But whatever.

    The game was fun, but I don't see the level of hype people attribute to it.

    ^ Maybe it'll be published as a downloadable title on all formats which could persuade them.

    Basic N64 version for Wii VC, and enhanced version on PSN/LIVE!

    Rare would at least be making some money for M$.

    Sonic is on xbox live along with other games that have nothing to do with xbox or microsoft.

    Sony also owns a majority stake in MGM/UA, I doubt this will happen. Sony isn't going to allow MS to license a key product name to a XBLA game.

    But Sonic isnt owned by the direct competition. MGM is majority owned by Sony, and Columbia is fully owned by Sony. See the difference?

    ...wow...why do I even bother...

    Uh, yeah, Sonic is published by Sega, who is a third party that works directly with Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony and would have nothing against their games being published.

    The James Bond license is now owned by a Sony-owned company, and the game was published exclusively for Nintendo.

    Nintendo and Sony are much less likely to allow the game to be published.

    I like this idea. :) I would buy it in a heartbeat if it was released on both the Wii and PS3. Goldeneye is one of my top 5 favorite games on the Nintendo 64....and it's in my top 25 games of all time. I would be pissed if it's Xbox only.

    It's a pass on me regardless what it comes out for. It hasn't aged so well and for multiplayer kicks the HL2 mod is pretty much perfect, has better controls than any console game and is free :D

    Big skip for me.

    have any of you played Goldeneye lately? It's pretty horrid gameplay-wise actually. I mean, I loved it to death back in the day but God after firing it up during x-mas it just feels so.......******. The controls are absolutely awful!!! It was kinda fun multi-player but thats only because all of us were having a lot of trouble hitting one another when the auto-aim crapped out a bit.

    Ah, that's right! Thanks. That just makes the whole thing even more sticky. And Columbia (Sony-owned) still has distribution rights.

    So a Nintendo-published game, whose license belongs to EA and distribution rights belong to Sony.

    Seems very unlikely to be published on XBLA, but we'll see.

    Good point. Maybe they would re-name it and since it has online+new graphics they could somehow get past all that.

    *beats head on table*

    Microsoft owns Rare, the original developer. Nintendo is the publisher. Sony just owns the James Bond distribution rights.
