Default No Goldeneye on XBLA or Wii thanks to Nintendo

Quote:
Microsoft would agree to let Nintendo launch the game on Wiiís Virtual Console if Nintendo agreed to let Microsoft launch it on Xbox Live Arcade. Nintendo didnít like the plan.

Rare started working on GoldenEye XBLA before anybody knew if it was legally possible to release the game; they completed it; Activision, the current holders of the James Bond licence, greenlighted it; and then Nintendo, who share the rights of the original game with Microsoft, refused to give their approval for a joint launch on Wii and Xbox 360. ďBut the game is finished and it could be released if the situation changes in the future,Ē our source added. In other words, Microsoft is still willing to release GoldenEye even if it takes a decade for Nintendo to eat up their ego.

Why isn't Nintendo scratching MS' back a little bit?

Well gosh darn nintendo... They need to get over their silly pride and just let golden eye go out for both systems. This is what I'm friggen waiting on right now, I want golden eye damnet! For me (at least) it's the second best FPS of all time right behind halo combat evolved. Ugh!!!

Why people are clamoring for this is beyond me. This game is way overrated, and revisiting N64 era graphics would melt my eyes.

Its one of the best FPS games ever and the same reason people are loving that Megaman 9 is out and the same reason Duke Nukem 3D sold 400k its first week on XBL.

People love there old school games they grew up with.

ITs hardly overrated, theres a reason its always brought up when people start taking, best shooter ever.

But if im not mistaken, i thought they said they revised the graphics also, for all you graphic whores. Who would rather have a eye orgasm then play a great game.

They probally wont let it on XBL cause they know the Live version would sell more.

The controls are terrible...somethings are best left in the past.
