Earlier this week, CommanderBond.net reported that the highly popular James Bond video game, Nintendo 64’s GoldenEye 007, was rumoured to be moving into development for the Xbox Live Arcade.
Unfortunately, K1Bond007 reports that the Bond game has hit a bump in the road.
As previously pointed out, this rumoured transition to Xbox Live was to be treated with some discretion since Nintendo–the original publisher of GoldenEye 007–was not mentioned to be in negotiations with Microsoft, Rareware, MGM Studios and Activision (who now holds the rights to the Bond video games) at the time.
As a result, this new version of GoldenEye 007 has been sidelined due to financial difficulties regarding a deal between Nintendo and Microsoft. The game would have featured the same graphics (despite earlier reports of updates in this category), would have seen less playable characters due to licensing issues with certain actors, and an all-new Xbox Live multiplayer mode.
Until next time it seems…
