Why Did GoldenEye XBLA Stall?

Patrick Klepek of 1up.com writes, "If you've read the latest issue of EGM, you've probably cried over the apparently silent death of an Xbox Live Arcade version of Rare and Nintendo's classic James Bond shooter for the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007. Quartermann's rumor mongering didn't elaborate much, but there's definitely more to the story."

"The GoldenEye port has been in development at Rare for several months, and was never intended as a remake. The XBLA version would have featured the same graphics, maps and weapons from the N64 version, but with the crucial addition of online multiplayer over Xbox Live. Several characters wouldn't make the cut due to licensing issues with certain actors."

The story is too old to be commented.

It says... "Microsoft apparently wanted this to happen, too, but it sadly cancelled the 007 port even though it was l'ocked and ready to go."

That's too bad, could have been something great for the XBLA players. :'(

Microsoft is a piece of trash why else would they ignore a game that everyone wants, and at the same time bring some dignity to they live service at the same time. Hey if they don't want it send it over to nintendo where it belongs.

Nintendo and MS couldn't agree on pricing.
It's all Nintendo's fault this time.

I like the one you can play on Steam. The graphics were updated, but the levels felt pretty good from what I remember.
