Reader Callum sent in a snippet from gaming mag GamesTM that concerns the Virtual Console. He took a pic, and transcribed the bit of text as well…
"Something big is coming to the Virtual Console, something that, for the past decade, certain corners of the retro community have been crying out for. I wish I could say more, but the uncertainties of publishing schedules prevents me from spilling the beans too early. Nevertheless, if what we've heard turns out to be true, the virtual console is about to become a lot more interesting and looks like it might turn out to be much more valuable to dedicated retro gamers than we first thought."
Must be Goldeneye! Possibly Perfect dark but my money would be on Goldeneye!
Goldeneye or Perfect Dark or any of the other Rare made treasures for the N64. Nintendo does not own the code. Even if they get all the other license issues straigtened out, Rare still owns the actual games.
Yeah so it was on N64 and Rare made it and Activision owns the rights to Bond. So in accuallity no one will probably see Goldeneye on a downloadable for either VC or Marketplace.
Yet they did say it's for the retro and n64 doesn't really have the retro feel yet. I'm thinking it's got to be a Chronos Trigger or something like that.
May not even be that good..
If it's goldeneye or perfect dark i shall be pleasantly surprised
i hope nintendo comes with a multiplayer update, when the omline-multiplayer starts, we can play all the retro games with or against others around the world.
