GoldenEye 007' rumours return, major revelation expected next week
WTF? now the pictures make sense.
they should stop these rumors and hurry up and finish the game. i was a big fan of the original and if the XBL version is supposed to have updated graphics and online multiplayer, this will be my reason to buy a 360. rCrysis
I think this is a total remake. 360 looks like it' going blow for blow with the ps3 so far. 2008 is going to be a great year for multi plat gamers. I expect Killzone to miss 08 along with FF13 and white knight. So Ps3 will have Resistance, MGSm GT5 and LPB( could be good don't know) WHile 360 will have GOW, Too human, Fable and Golden eye and ninja gaiden This year is looking strong for everyone.
Holy SHYT.. If they remake goldeneye im buying a 360 ASAP.. I am starting to feel dumb for downtalking the xbox
What if they revamped GoldenEye in such a way they didn't need Nintendo's permission? What if they took out Bond, and perhaps even the campaign, and just release a multiplayer game with all the maps and weapons, but sans Bond? Makes sense to me. No fuss, no rights issues. It has been done before. Even with GoldenEye. Anyone remember the first level of TimeSplitters 2? That was a GoldenEye level as well, but tweaked.
i dont know man.. i think it will probably be goldeneye still.. if they can just get the title then that game is an instant hit.. im willing to buy a 360 again if they do this
Well, of course the title is instant, erm, 'gold'. But given the problems they have with the licence, I would not be surprised they change that to 'GoldenBrow' or 'Eyes of Gold' or 'TGFNAGBWCCITBOTL' (The Game Formerly Known As GoldenEye But We Can't Call It That Because Of The Lawyers). I am sure, if they make clear this is in fact GoldenEye, fans won't mind the new name. And people who haven't played the game on N64 won't care at all.
If they took out bond then it wouldn't be goldeneye.
It is on it's way to XBL.
I have Tina Turner shouting Goldeneye in my head.
ahaha What ?
huh i guess microsoft cant come up with anythin original anymore, they hav 2 make games that hav already bin done (and take the credit 4 it) then make out like its the best thing since porn was made legal, i fu<kin hate microsoft there a cancer, the more microsoft products u own the more microsoft products will fail u...
Erm, are they taking credit for it? No Is Goldeneye the best thing since making pron legal? Well if you've played the original game, then yes.
how are they taking credit for it? everyone knows it was on the N64
gonna be brill on arcade
i had hours of fun drinkin stella and smokin green playin goldeneye multi player with loads of me mates when i was younger, but its had its day, they should leave as a classic. Pong made thousands of people happy when it came out, how long till microsoft remake that,
i guess if square came out with a ff7 remake you will be saying sony cant come up with anything original no?
@gadget Names and labels sell, changing the name could make people think its just a different game.
PREDATOR - ive never played ff7 nor will. i get wot your sayin BUT ff7 was made for the playstation, just like goldeneye was made for the n64, how would u feel if sony or nintendo remade HALO, xbox fanboys would scream with anger,
you are prob a mad nintendo fanboy that rare is with MS now. Face it,the 360 is best for shooters so it makes sense to put it on it.
Definitely would be Sweeeeeeta!! I spent countless hours playing this game 4-player split screen in college, before there was really any On-line. So Before Halo in a sense...blew that open. @Hellsvacancy Above, well the Goldeneye007 series has been somewhat dead so this would be a revival. On another note: Plenty of N64 owners now have Xbox 360 and some PS's as well, since we all know Nintendo do not quite cater to the hardcore as much as FPS's go these days, so it's really not like, as if, halo was revived on a PS console years down the road. Plus we have already seen the backlash and petitions when Capcom's Devil May Cry went multi. If I had N64 and only played Nintendo Consoles after GE007, knowing what route Nintendo has taken, I wouldn't mind picking up the console just to enjoy this game, or even having others enjoy a game that I once Owned. In the end does it matter where the game Originated on? Cause if that's the case, then don't let me get started on Sony's big 3rd party franchises.
Couldnt agree with you more. Besides this is easily the biggest game rare ever made and since Microsoft paid all that money I see no reason why they shouldnt be allowed to remake it. I fully support it because it was the console FPS all these games out now owe a lot to goldeneye and its ideas. I wouldnt mind getting the original again and having to beat it, but a remake would be nice. Come on better control, better frame rate and better graphics. Whats not to love about that. Some nintendo fans can gripe all they want hey Im one of you, but Id rather see this game just come out so it can be enjoyed again. Id have it on the first damn day. Besides remakes are a part of the industry, at least if the game does come out they spent some time on it and not just pytting out a quick cash in. If theya re really updating the game good for them. Who ever said to rtemove anything bond from the game that was my idea to. Wouldnt be to hard to remove any of the main bond franchise characters. Im pretty sure most of the levels would be fine, just names and so on. Though it is important to have the name because its a classic and this would do a hell of a lot for Microsoft. Thats the only reason why I think it will happen. This would be huge. As for the person saying how would we feel if Nintendo and Sony remade halo. Well if either one of them say ten years after the release of halo owned bungie then why not. I would really like an updated original halo obiviously not right now. Though I would like it at some day. Halo 1 was my favorite just like some of the features added in 3. Playing halo and being like wait how do I carjack this vehicle? Really sucked as he ran me over.
I'm really sure the bond franchise part is fine with every other company. Activision doesn't mind at all (they hold the current license to make Bond games), MGM is all go for it (the studio that owns Bond), Rare is a go (made the original game), and Microsoft is a go, the weak link was Nintendo (the original publisher). I've seen studios and developers jump to other companies before (like iD with quake and doom, having Activision distribute the older versions of their games even though GT interactive used to do it). I don't know what cards Nintendo still has left, but hopefully they have finally folded and will let this one come out.
I hope this comes out, i remember the days of goldeneye multipler on the N64. It would be fun to fire them up again on live.
I reckon its a remake, Rare and MS said that Banjo Kazooie 3 is coming out this year and they also said they have another project coming out this year. I've not seen an XBLA game with those sorts of graphics and espically when they have a 150mb limit on their XBLA games. I'm betting a full remake to go against Killzone 2 and Resistance 2.
I have a feeling it will still be an XBLA game, but maybe, just maybe, they will raise the filesize limit. 150 megs is not a lot to work with these days. I mean, really, who in their right minds goes out and buys an Arcade model console if they plan on downloading a bunch of games. That is the irony in that SKU's name. It comes with a bunch of Arcade games, but you have no room to save much more. With memory cards, like SD cards, costing 10-20 dollars for 1 or 2 gigs of memory these days, and much larger sizes available, Microsoft should have bundled that unit with a 2 gig memory card, at least. Could have even thrown it up to 4 gigs and probably still made a profit. And I'm sure those 20 gig hard drives are not that expensive either. They really know how to gouge the consumer's wallet.
