A video comparison supposedly showing the N64 and the rumored Xbox LIVE Arcade versions.
I want to know: Can I play this on my Wii with the original N64 controller? Are those plugs just for gamecube? Is it on the Nintendo network? If not, 360 version will do, ahh achievements.
No. Yes. No. Probably never will be. XBL version was canned. Sorry. No Achievements.
MS bought Rare (but didn't hang on to most of the employees, who left to form Free Radical...most of the guys behind goldeneye and the original perfect dark, are making Haze)...and all of the IPs...Nintendo would have to buy Goldeneye back from MS in order to put anything related to it on the virtual console... could anyone tell a difference?...I thought it was supposed to have updated everything?...maybe it was just the video, but it looked the same on both from what I could tell...great game though...
damn. a tear just came across my eye.memories damn i miss this game. i hope they release it. i don't care if it's on the wii or the 360.
I need this game.
come to ps3 !! lol.. -Edit: for your information a$$wipe, i said "to ps3" NOT "to MY ps3" and also, i know rare is part of microsoft now, jeez i was just stating id like to see it be released on ps3 is all..
Its like Sony has programed you people to say that. *Coming to PS3 *MY PS3 *I'll enjoy this on my PS3 *Hope it comes to my PS3 *I'm getting this for my PS3 * PS3 for me Just messing with you its strange because no other console fan really announces their platform when wanting a game. Rare is owned by MSFT the fight's between Nintendo and Rare, sorry.
once again you scream fanboy this and that, maybe he just wants to play the f**king game, you ever think about that??
Although in this situation he is far from being the douche... Bubbles for mighty for being the logical one
Did you say something?, Always leading your rabid Pack dogs trying to sniff my asshole. Come in here to confront 360fans are we?. How in the hell do you call somebody out when they were kidding around with an ignorant member. Stop stalking me loser.
POG why the fcuk are you so defensive? everytime someone mentions the PS3 you go into a spasm and start protecting the 360 like its your f**cking child or something..... you need to relax man and the guy just said he wanted it to come to the PSN, like me.... why are you so f**cking negative and rude?
whats with all the Golden Eye craving? Some times me and a few mates dig it out for old times sake, 10 minutes later its back in the cupboard where it should be.
This game practically pioneered split screen gaming. This was great game when the only multiplayer option was having more than 1 controller. This game also is what really made Rare hit the top (besides Killer instinct)
*sigh* brings back memories......
This is NOT going to happen BABOONS.....AHAHAHAHAHHAHHA You're gonna have to live with that, just like you're all living with the RROD......AAAHAHAHHAHHAHHAHA
Lol this vid is a complete fake... Goldeneye is not coming to XBLA. Why do 360 fans continuously make rumors to try to persuade ppl to give them what they want just live with what u get...
why shouldnt people try to get what they want? seriously if you have to power to make something happen for the benefit of yourself and others why not ? are you just jealous or do you truely believe people should just rollover and take whatever people feel like giving to you... EDIT hmm disagrees??? id love to hear from the cowards who disagree but not back it up with their reasoning... seriously people. come on... learn to back your views, move away from the shroud of (reletive) anonyminity
No look at the lights on the side in the very beggining of each version. The models are totally different, the 360 being a lot taller and wider and different looking. You just can't do that in a mod. Same with the smooth play and other model differences (the scientists/soilders have higher poly models)
there was a crysis rumor, far cry 2 rumor, ninja gaiden 2 rumor, mass effect rumor, splinter cell V rumor, gta V exclusive rumor all to the ps3 so... i dunno if im doing this right....Why do ps3 fans continuously make rumors to try to persuade ppl to give them what they want just live with what u get...i think i copy and pasted it right
Is it just me, or did the N64 version look better?
you beat me to the flamewar post...lol. But seriously this game with online would rock.
They said you can switch it back to it's original look supposedly.
What's so good about this game? Do I have to bring out Mission Impossible on the N64 for you guys?
Mission Impossible in N64 Sucked balls.... Goldeneye I played for a year and quite certainly did not suck!
Like most old FPS, this game hasn't aged very well.
they could have easily added that with video editing...ect its pretty powerful stuff in this day and age as for that the game looks no different then the n65 version.
Sorry to be the negative one but has anyone heard of emulation? This is most likely made from someone using a faked re-textured, modded version of the N64 ROM running on a PC emulator.
Ayup. this video is probably a trick from a modded rom. that message at the end means nothing. the fact that he pointed it out proves that it's probably fake. f*CK!
You cannot up the polygon count let alone add newer character models in a simple rom while upping the Framerate. The video is real not only becuase of the actual framerate, but the saving info to console text at the end, the B button which you can clearly see, and please explain how he can get to the gadgets without going to the watch? It's real cause in the video the person swtiched to the camera on the fly and took the picture. In the game (and all the roms) you would have to pause it to switch to gadgets.
Damn you MSFT for buying out Rare ._. I cant play n64 because the gfx are so sheety lol. i would always get a headache playing Goldeneye and id wonder why
i remember doing speedruns of the train and cradle. what a sweet game.
invincibility cheat code that was hella hard at my age speaking of which, i wonder why they took off the "you run faster sideways than forward/backward" button
Sorry to rain on everyone's parade, but this project has been cancelled. Between Nintendo, Microsoft, Activision, and licensing for the original actors licenses they couldn't make it happen.
Everything's been rumor and speculation up until now: GoldenEye on XBLA, it being canceled, and even the reasons behind it. I don't think this video is trying to prove that it's still coming, but rather that it does/did exist.
I disagree. The only thing that is rumor and speculation is WHY it was canned.
My God, video games sure have come along way!
Pop-in was pretty bad, most noticably when he walks into the silo and the entire rocket disappears for several frames. Still, I need some way to play it, after the stupid migrant workers stole my 64 a few years back...
someone said its not coming to 360 though, i dont care just put it on ps3
That's even less likely seeing as Microsoft owns the original developer, Rare. Hey, at least you have Resistance 2 on the way!
Rare doesn't own the license. Activision does.
Activision currently has the license to make James Bond video games. Who said they didn't? Activision does not however own the original code to Goldeneye - that belongs to Rare who is owned by Microsoft. The Activisiton thing does muddy up the waters. Even worse is the fact that Nintendo published the game originally and still retains publishing rights.
That's what I'm saying. GoldenEye is still a James Bond license. Regardless if Rare owns the rights to the original GoldenEye code, they can't do anything with the actual license because of Activision. As of now, both XBLA and Wii's virtual console are deprived of any kind of port/remake because of this stand-off. Hopefully Nintendo and Microsoft can come to an agreement.
Microsoft needs to do whatever it takes to get this on Live Arcade. Seriously, with a multiplayer mode over the internet, i dont know anyone who wouldn't buy it.
download Goldeneye: Source. it's free if you have Half Life 2, not to mention you can play with up to 32 players I believe.
the n64 version looked better, this proves that the 360 is not able to run such a game =) how often do we hear crap like that from the likes of say xmart and pog and other xbots lol
How often do we hear crap from closed-minded fools like Gamefan12? Regardless of how much you hate the console, you have to be a complete idiot to think that the 360 can't run Goldeneye.
Cool if it's true, but textures can be adjusted with emulators especially for the N64. I was just playing Perfect Dark a few weeks ago and realized how it's almost impossible to play the game without auto-aim. If it came to the 360 it would be nice to see how dual analogs can really change the game.
this game will look better on the 360 even the controls will be improved for this game on the 360. Didn't like the controls on the N64 was kinda disappointment so yeh it will be much better on the 360 =]
Doesn't matter. This game was cool and a classic but we will be getting a new one soon...it's be the same guys who did this...it's called HAZE. It's a PS3 exclusive...
I doubt this is the XBL version, it's most likely one of the numerous N64 emulators simply playing Golden Eye, hence the higher frame rate.
dukenukem 3d or golden eye ,wat would u want, me duke wins hands down
saddest part is, this game looks and plays better than Call of Duty 4.
I don't know. I just don't think that the game looks as good or better on the 360. Maybe the widescreen...but something is fishy about anyone getting a hold on the video. I'd want to know how they got it. Until you could really prove it to me, I'd have to say that it's a complete and total fake. While it may have been in production, all that means nothing now, so I wouldn't even care if it was real anyways.
you are a complete idiot if you really thought I meant that. I don't hate the 360, I hate fanboys. Of course the 360 can handle that. I was making a sarcastic remark about how we hear that type of comment all the time from xbox fanboys when a game happens to not run as smoothly on ps3, not because it can not handle it, but because of programming.
I Have the game on emulator and you can play 4 player online on it on you pc, but you need the kaillera and dll files, this seems exactly the same as my emulation version, but ihave not seen that message where it sais saving to console
the obvious 60 fps on the top of the screen looked like it was running an emulator. and saving to console can be done with any video editing program
I remember the golden gun one shot bam your dead haha oh and the proximity mines where you could plant them on other people. This game def. needs to be available, it was really fun. "math is like sex, you + the bed, - the clothes, DIVIDE the legs and hope you don't MULTIPLY"
Goldeneye on the N64 looks way better than the sh!tebox360 version
Nintendo plublished the game why would they allow it to go on XBL.....would microsoft allow halo to be put on the wii HELL NO! so stop complaining you cant have your cake and eat it too.
Just because Nintendo published it for the N64 doesn't mean they own the rights to the license. I recall a while back where an interview with Rare revealed that the web of rights for this title is so tangled that it might not come to either the Virtual Console or XBLA. Edit: This is where I remember it from... http://www.rare.co.uk/extra... You'll have to search for Goldeneye.
Anyone notice the missle disappearing in the "XBLA" version?
Anyone notice this is a fake on an emulator?
Man, this rumor is almost two years old. Why don't these things ever go away?
Because fans are crazy about this game. Beleive me Im all for it no matter which version comes out. Im just tired of it, because we have seen supposed leaked screen shots, videos and what not of the remake with out any word from Microsoft. Even a leak from a rare worker who said it was cancelled due to complications between rights. i would love the game to come out, but Im just tired of it every few days this and that bs. I wont hold my breath I got confirmed games to look forward to.
If you really want to play Golden Eye for the Nintendo64, then just go out and buy an N64 + Golden eye game. More then likely you can get it cheaper, then buying it on the xbox.
They want the online multiplayer.
i am curious as to why there are disagreements on most of the comments, quite alot of them are obviously true but still get disagreements
