From VG247: "What a thrill it’s been to see GoldenEye 007 finally revealed to be making a return on Nintendo Switch and Xbox. Sure, it’s been rumored for a long time, but it was still one of the most electrifying announcements on a day that was, thanks to a Nintendo Direct and State of Play, pretty packed full of ‘em."
What a missed opportunity to not launch Goldeneye online for Xbox. Xbox might have the highest rate of online multiplayer gaming of any platform.
They could have done cross play or something
Hell even PR wise they could have done the whole “play together” stuff
No xbox live is a real bummer though, a real waste.
I'm fine with what we're getting, and quite frankly surprised we're getting anything given how much of a licensing hell this game is in between MS, Nintendo, Amazon & Pierce Brosnan.
Also would rather have the Xbox version than Nintendo since it has improved framerate, res etc. The NSO version is just the ROM emulated & online multiplayer will be weird - it's still split screen just 'emulated networking'.
Plus it's very accessible in terms of cost - included in NSO & GamePass, also free to anyone who has Rare Replay, which costs $7.
