Activision's GoldenEye Wii remake would do better on Xbox 360 believes respected industry analyst, Michael Pachter.
Does every Pachter announcement need to be posted on N4G? I don't get it, what makes his opinion, which is not only common sense and shared by many others, so much more authoritative and "respected"? I don't understand. Anyways, Nintendo is KICKING ASS! But-but-no hardcore gamez on Wii! Anyone see Reggie address the rumors? I swear he was going to pull out a gun and shoot everybody lol. He looked pretty grim. New Kirby? New Dragon Quest? These guys are on a roll!
Nintendo has just made me into a believer. I'm getting the 3DS ASAP.
agreed, nintendo really made this conference all about the hardcore gamers, cant same the same about "wink wink"
I got lost on the "respected industry analyst" part but hey, he is somekind of celebrity in the medium so his opinion kinda counts.
alpha, i don't understand this. Yes the Nintendo conference was the best conference of e3 2010 this far. I just wish the Zelda demo wasn't that bad
Nintendo's conference was most definitely their best this entire generation. They announced what people wanted and much more, including a solid list of upcoming 3DS games.
The simple reason is that several make money off of investing in videogame companies, myself included. I don't know who is posting his comments but just like every commentator you make your decisions based on a balance of all of them. I too believe GoldenEye would've sold better on 360 especially if Rare did the remake. After watching Microsoft's yesterday I thought the following press conferences were going to be bad. But Nintendo did a great job, why didn't their previous years look like this.
Well I think at the time, their focus on another type of consumer, the casual consumer. Once they established that they were clear to take off and show everyone why Nintendo is known as a Gaming Company.
You did play rares perfect dark on the 360 right, remember how much it sucked and how this game with barely even better graphics than the N64 is all sorts of awesome. Seriously the guys that make 3d shooters should know what makes golden eye tick and activision knows it better than rare.
That conference was just awesome. They showed so many new games, it's hard to list. They are bringing so many games that people asked for, and more. Donkey Kong just blew me away especially, I used to play that a ton. Kirby was great as well. Nintendo might have just won E3, just gotta wait until Sony is up, I'm pretty sure they will have some surprises as well. Microsoft kinda let me down on the hardcore side, Reach and Gears were awesome though.
Who are you trying to fool? Same old classic Nintendo games that are technically last-gen.
When did being hardcore become last gen, who cares they rocked and 2d gaming rocks too!
Well the original developers of the game formed Free Radical and they are great at developing PS3 games thats why Crytek bought them up.. I would say for that reason it would do better on PS3 however this game isn't gonna get half the success of the original title. FPS on wii?? no chance.. Nintendo no longer have a hardcore market.
Yes, Pather's comments are mostly common knowledge in the gaming community. I to wonder why everything that comes out of his mouth is posted especially considering how looked down on he is at N4G. As far as Nintendo, while I am happy that they have gone in the direction of games and made them the focus of the presentation, I am upset that these are just the same games over and over with nothing really classified as "new". Save for Epic Mickey which seems to be a blend of the older SNES games and Mario Sunshine. Donkey Kong, Kirby, Goldeneye...nothing really reached me as new or "that I have to get" cause in essence I've played them before. It is good for those that havn't had the chance which are the majority of Wii owners, but personally, little in the "must have" department.
What an Attention-Whøre, he will say whatever crap come into his mind just for a little of exposure, GTFO Pachter, do yourself a favor and Shut UP!
Why does it seem like everything Pachter has been saying for the last month has been a veiled 360 endorsement? I mean, he never talks about how 360 exclusive developers would benefit by developing for PS3, but he would constantly talk about how developers like Insomniac "need" to develop for 360. He hypes up the Kinect, he says things like "GoldenEye would be better on 360" ... What the hell is up with him? He's coming off like a Microsoft company shill.
Every true Bond fan should storm the studio, no pierce B!
i hope they have him as a down-loadable character or have him to play in MP
I'll get the tank ready. If you're going to make a game based on Goldeneye, you should probably use the likeness of the guy who starred in it. That's just mind blowing. If you absolutely have to remake something, do it right.
but it would be a different game on the 360 or PS3.
Wow... I wish I was as smart as him...
and the kicker is - he gets paid good money to say stuff like that! To quote Arnie "I need a vacation"
this patcher bloke is a dickhead
Patcher would do better if he would just shut up. :) or The internet would do betetr if they stop posting stories on whatever crap he says.
Well the 360 is sort of the king of shooters so that's not surprising.
Its all the 360 has.
White water rafting, car games without pedals, and most important of all, SKITTLES!!! I love you Skittles. </sarcasm>
Go troll somewhere else. It has plenty of other games.
For Pachter is better sleep with a Xbox than with his wife.
this dude needs to shut up already...
yes goldeneye will be better on xbox, with pierce, besides this is the new version of goldeneye, rare made an HD version of the classic goldeneye like perfect dark
get a real job patcher insted of predicting stuff and being someones tool.
It won't do well now. It was an average shooter back in the day, but was one of the first of its kind. Now with CODs, Killzones and 100000 other FPS games, I don't see this title doing well at all. Just my opinion.
this one is special for many gamers even for me! and ive never played the original goldeneye on the n64.
The fun was the 4 player split screen with buddies. But in this environment, it won't stand a chance. Not to mention the original had controls that barely worked. I'll call it a flop right now. I guess we'll see. I can't even imagine it doing 1/2 way decent.
I can see where both of you are coming from. I just hope Activision didn't just port N64 levels with wii graphics. They were too small by todays standards
Patche STFU!!! LOSER
can tell microsoft to stop relying on other consoles IDEAS AND GAMES and gett off their butts and make their OWN stuff...... and stop wasting time with call of duty map packs
OF course it would but nintendo needs somthing exciting for E3.
Pacther is wrong and Nintendo just disappointed many a bot with this news. They were so hyped up hoping Rare would bring Goldeneye to the 360. But Rare is stuck taking it up the ass from MS and forced to make shovelware for Kinect.
actually Rare did make goldeneye for xbla and microsoft was excited for the release. It was Nintendo that stopped the release because of legal issues.
Hence my saying Nintendo disappointed many a bot with this news.
Hell yes, He is so right. Better graphics, sound, gameplay.. Everything. Activision has developed the game on the wrong platform! Should be on PS3 & Xbox 360
I agree with him. Shooters don't do well on the Wii, I thought everyone knew this after dead space and all the other shooters that bombed
god,it looks bad on wii,i mean bad as in bad.to bad its not multiplat in hd
Nintendo is back in full force! :D
all those kinectic games would do better on the wii...
lol That's true
everything he says has to involve being better on 360... patcher is stupid
This just in............ Patcher says if every single game came out on all three consoles and the PC they would sell more.
that guy is a dumbass... btw i have a ps3 but nintendo conference rocked, i want a wii and a 3ds now!!!
He knows nothing about gaming. What it would do better because its a FPS? Please GTFO! You would do better with your mouth closed.
STFU PATCHER!!! Jesus what a C**t!!!
Maybe they've done a deal. Nintendo might of said to Activision, do a remake, make it exclusive to the Wii, then after X amount of time, we'll give you the Goldeneye 64 rights so you can slap it out on the XBLA as well as Wii Ware. Just a thought.
can some 1 please tell me who patcher is. and y his comments are so popular on websites like n4g?
this is not a goldeneye remake in true nature, its a sham of using the original license, just another mediocre bond game. hope i'm wrong.
pachter must constantly wipe his chin due to the crud that keeps coming out of his mouth
Hes likely right, that being said who cares as long as we finally get it.
Why is this loser still yapping? Somebody needs to shut him up for good.
Micro$oft didn't STEAL GoldenEye!!! ;-D Well done Nintendo for keeping the game Nintendo;)
I agree it would be better on 360, however its not on 360 so enjoy it on Nintendo
Pachter is a Dumbass.
trust me this is gonna boom on the wii just like dead space
