GoldenEye's Return Sells Twice As Well As HD Bond Outings

It's not very often a Nintendo-exclusive title outsells a similar game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but the GoldenEye name clearly still carries appeal for UK gamers as the game comprehensively outsold HD 007 outing James Bond 007: Blood Stone. (Industry, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, Nintendo DS, Wii)

For England James?
No.

For Wii fans Trevelyan.

This little news bit won't receive much attention, me thinks.

And the attention it does get will be to marginalze it.

Yep. But it looks like this is for UK sales. I wonder what it has done here in the states?

What do u expect Wii does'nt have many to choose from. Where as PS3 & 360 have tons.

funny you say that ...
Because when I got Goldeneye, I also got Red Steel 2, The Conduit, and Modern Warfare Refelex for the cheap, that same day. And all of them are good games (albeit Conduit's Online has problems)

Case in point.

Shame for Bizarre, they just can't catch a break.

But woo for Eurocom.... they're pretty much the go to Bond dev now and good on them, their Bond games are brilliant especially Goldeneye.

Eurocom, under the radar, has become one of the best (if not THE best) third-party Wii devlopers. They were given a turd sandwich in the form of Extraction ("here, make another light gun game"), and managed to make one of the best games in the genre this gen.

And now they've made a darn good FPS.

If Nintendo is made of money right now, I kinda wonder if they'd seriously think of buying the studio. They put out quality.
SpoonyRedMage  +   1382d ago
It'd probably be a good purchase but it might make more sense to just continue working with Activision and Eurocom.

...and whilst I enjoyed DS: E Goldeneye shows what could have, and should have been like.
