Goldeneye appears back on for XBL. (No it's not. It's a lame publicity stunt)

From another forum:

Xbox World Magazine has been teasing some supposedly-major video game release for the past few days. Every day has resulted in a small segment of a picture being released.

So far, this is what's been unveiled:



Combined with a screenshot of "Goldeneye" 64:

Can't wait for this to hit.

I just don't see this game having the same fun factor it did back in the day. If I need a FPS fix I'll pop in COD4 or Halo3.

It's all in the atmosphere, which this game had a good amount of.

How could you put a price on this?

I'd pay full price for a 360 version of Goldeneye.

Please please please please please be real!

If enough people agree with you, they will charge more. If they want to charge more let them put it out on a disc, but if not please please please be 800 points. I agree with you, I would pay more, but Micro$oft will find some way to milk every dollar, and then future games will start to come out at this price.

But like I said, I would pay more as well.

And here I thought they were just doing a straight port with no upgrades... and I wondered why everyone was so excited.

As much as I liked the original on the N64, I didn't see myself (or many other people) actually putting up with those graphics today. Good to see they are updating it.

it would be cool to see but i wouldnt want it to become a huge deal. im not sure on some stuff so correct me if im wrong but Rare made goldeneye, and they take forever to do anything. if its just going to be a re-make ala conker live and reloaded style than count me out.

just focus on banjo 3 instead so we can get that within the next 4 years

Well I see it this way. MS spent $375 million dollars on Rare. Rare hasn't had a bonafide hit yet. Grabbed by the Ghoulies and Conker tanked, as did Viva Pinata. Kameo and PD0 were moderate successes but probably wouldn't have been if they weren't launch titles.

Goldeneye will be the the turnaround Rare & MS need to justify that investment. If it takes Goldeneye to keep everything else in the works at Rare then I'm all for it. I'm not saying MS would write them off, but generating a substantial amount of money will allow them to do the stuff they want instead of MS suits stepping in wanting certain games to fill a genre.

I think the gun is wrong, in the mesh, I'm pretty sure that's his silenced PP7.

The UK's Xbox World 360 magazine blog has been teasing readers over the past week or so with snippets of a screenshot (like the one seen here) from a game they will be featuring in their next issue, which hits stands February 27th. After puzzling over the pieces with the help of several of our readers, we've come to the conclusion that it is indeed the abandoned port of Rare's N64 classic Goldeneye for Xbox Live Arcade. They'll have shots from the game and hands-on impressions, but don't be getting your hopes up.

"There'll be no satisfying conclusion... but maybe, together, we can take down the whole system. Or, er, change a few minds."


Or at the very least move a few magazines, right? Hit the link to browse the heartbreaking screenshot snippets.

From Kotaku.

Sounds like the mag is just covering the game with screens and hands-on impressions, not confirming that it's actually coming out now.

Still sounds like it's not getting released any time soon to me.

It's a great way to build traffic and sell magazines. Not to mention, the UK is pretty big on tabloids isn't it?
