I am livid. I read "winter release" and like all of you I felt it would be out by xmas.

Now we're going to have to wait a long time for them to release this game.....

Ugh. Goddamn you Microsoft/Rare.....

Its not really rare's fault another developer is reworking it for its release on xb marketplace...anyone remember the slowdown on carrington villa when using the sniper rifle from atop the cliff must of been 1 frame per sec :) still its the last decent game rare produced although the story showed signs all wasn't well in the creative department following most of the goldeneye team left to form free radical:confused:

Nintendo? They have nothing to do with this except for the fact that Perfect Dark debuted on their 64-bit system.

This whole delay is either Rare or Microsoft's fault... or both. If there is anyone to complain towards, it would be them.

As for Nintendo, the new Zelda is out, and it is pretty cool. If that means anything. hahaha. :D

Well, isn't PD scheduled for a 4th quarter release? So the quarter ends the last week of March, I expect it sometime before April then. If it comes anytime before then I'll be happy :D But I am getting kinda impatient. I want the game to come out soon........

01-19-2010, 05:44 AM
It better not be bloody march, considering theyve stated that the conversion is already finished that would just be annoying as hell if they decide to hold it back just to boost their earnings for the end of the quarter.

GIVE ME MY PD!!!!!!!!! its been far too long since ive thrown down an N-bomb at my feet as im bum rushed by a bunch of pacifist-sims!!!!!!

Winter, or the 4th Quarter of 2009 ends just before April. Like March 26th, I believe. Where did you get February 24th from?

EDIT: Wow. I saw what I posted a few days ago and I said Q1 2010. What the hell was I typing? I meant to say, I read that Microsoft said PD would be released in the 4th quarter of 2009. Bleh. Sorry for the confusion

I hope it's out this wednesday, I saw a website that stated Rare were looking to release it either on the 27th of January, or the 4th (?) of February, after they delayed it to 2010. I know XBLA games are usually released on a wednesday, so my best hope is for this wednesday - February 3rd.

Mind you, that's only a hope, still haven't heard anything yet.

Sorry to squash your hope, but Microsoft already announced some of the arcade games coming out this month and so far it's these
Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays


February 3rd - Chime (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/c/chimexbla/)- 400 Microsoft points.
February 10th - Darwinia+ - 1,200 Microsoft points

So don't expect Perfect Dark until February 17th onward. And since this is PD we're talking about, Microsoft will reveal this heavy hitter on us well before the release date(at least a week I'd think). Remember it's still listed for Winter 2010 which is the end of December through end of March. So expect it before The last week of March

SP4ce93
02-01-2010, 06:41 PM
Yeah, I was kinda thinking we probably would have heard something by now about it being released. At least it's probably going to be released this month anyway. Also, I guess I can pick up some MSP and get a Fallout 3 add-on, with enough MSP to spare for PD.

Still.... It's so damn close I can almost taste it... :D

02-01-2010, 09:24 PM
Yeah, I got a $5 gift card to Best Buy and I'll be getting a 1600 point card there when Perfect Dark gets a solid release date. If I get the points card now, I'd spend it on songs I haven't purchased yet for Rock Band. The list just keeps getting longer and longer.........

Had to post this. As seen on a Kotaku article earlier today

Perfect Dark, remastered for the Xbox 360 (http://kotaku.com/tag/xbox360/)'s Live Arcade with a 60 framers-per-a-second framerate, is making an appearance at next week's Xbox 360 X10 gaming summit in San Francisco.
Rare tells us that the game will be playable at the event, and that we can expect to "find out some more tidbits" concerning Perfect Dark's unveiling next week on Rare's Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/RareLtd).

Can't wait till next week to hear and see this baby in motion!! :)

Major Nelson Drops A Few Juicy X10 Hints
Written Thursday, February 11, 2010 by Richard Walker


It's Xbox. It's 2010. It's X10 and Major Nelson has been dropping a few hints regarding the full line-up at the show taking place at the Terra Event Center in San Francisco today.
The Major tweeted (http://twitter.com/majornelson), "At the venue for our X10 event. A LOT of cool stuff to talk about starting tomorrow. Hint: SCDR2F3HRLP2 and more."
Okay - easy. That's Splinter Cell: Conviction, Dead Rising 2, Fable III, Halo: Reach and Lost Planet 2.
But wait, there's more!
"Ok..a couple of more new clues: GRPDAWTS. That's all for now."
Um...bit trickier that. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Perfect Dark, Alan Wake and perhaps The Sims?
Or maybe...(whisper it) TimeSplitters? Now that would be something.
Crackdown 2 will also be at the event, which starts later today. Keep an eye on the news when it all kicks off.

Tatanko
02-11-2010, 09:22 PM
Keep us updated! I hope we hear something about it this week :D

EDIT: I felt the need to share this since it hasn't been posted in the thread yet other than a small mention by Dustinator:

http://xbox.joystiq.com/2010/02/05/perfect-dark-xbla-playable-at-x10-new-screen/

He already mentioned the demo at X10, but there's a new screen on there as well.

Yep. It's part of Microsoft's "XBLA Block Party." Which will include Toy Soldiers, Scrap Metal & Perfect Dark. So glad it's got a somewhat firm release window. Now, my guess is that it will be the last game released during the Block Party. So my guess is March 24th or 31st.....I'll go with March 24

Dustinator

This article on the front page says PD won't come out the 3rd....

Xbox Live Arcade game Toy Soldiers will get the XBLA Block Party started on March 3rd, initiating a season of gaming goodness.

The eagerly anticipated XBLA port of Perfect Dark will come also as part of the Block Party alongside Arcade title Scrap Metal.

Game Room, which enables players to play and download retro games will also arrive as part of the XBLA Block Party.


So that means Perfect Dark will be coming out AFTER the 3rd of March....Still sticking with my prediction that it'll come out the 24th

Naw, I never said that. If you go up to one of my other posts it basically says the lineup of games at the X10 events. As in retail full disc games like Alan Wake, Dead rising 2, etc. The Sims is coming to consoles. So it's coming to the 360, but not the arcade. Besides, their CEO said it would be coming to consoles in fiscal 2011 (which runs from April 2010 to March 2011). Hope that clears up your question...

Ha ha ha. Sorry for bringing reality into the forum realm. :p I'm just super excited for PD to come out and I've been on top of every scrap of info for quite awhile. Just want to keep others informed and from thinking it's coming out a certain date(when it hasn't been "officially" anounced) and then getting bummed/pissed off that the date came and went.

I really want PD to come out the 10th also(sooner the better), but I have a feeling Microsoft will release the other two games and the Game Room before PD. Because you KNOW all of us will be playing Perfect Dark and won't care what else comes out. ;) So they want us to buy the other games before we're completely preoccupied. Stinkin Microsoft....

The original game just had multiplayer online, the arcade version will allow you to play coop, counter-op, the challenges and mulitplayer online.
What do they mean "the original game just had multiplayer online"? The original was on the N64...which had no online capabilities.

*Runs off to read the Kotaku article*........Cool. The more and more I see and read, the more anxious I get. I would defintely buy some DLC for PD. If it was Multiplayer maps, new guns, or even(gasp)an expansion to the single player, I'd buy it day one.

I was seriously expecting this game to be $15 when it was released. Even bracing for it to be the first XBLA game to hit the $20 mark honestly. And I was willing to pay that much too. But for $10 and possiblity of DLC if enough people buy it? I am totally messaging all my friends the Wednesday this comes out to tell them to buy it. Can't wait :)

Too true. The possiblity of DLC is a cherry on top of an already huge ice cream cake(perfect dark). The game is already near perfect as it was back in the day and it seems to be getting a fine tune up from what I've seen so far. But yeah, I don't have my hopes up too high for a "possibility." Totally content with PD as it is. :woop:

Tatanko
02-15-2010, 02:48 PM
Totally content with PD as it is. :woop:
As am I, especially with the sweet updated graphics work they did. Adding content on might even seem weird to me since it's new content for a game that came out 10 years ago :p I would assume the new content wouldn't be totally unique stuff, though. To give you an example of what I mean...look at the way Call of Duty does multiplayer maps: they take campaign scenery and turn it into a multiplayer level. Most levels for shooters are at least based off of the same scenery/geometry as the story, but I have a feeling that if they want to make DLC worth their time (read: profitable), it's going to have to be something they don't need to invest a lot of time and effort into. As much as I love PD and want to see it succeed on XBLA, there's absolutely no way of knowing how well it's going to do once it's released. Which is precisely why they haven't decided on DLC yet, I suppose.

I think it's Microsoft drumming up the hype on PD saying, "now if you guys buy this game, we could release DLC. IF you all buy a ton though...." Which I understand. Microsoft is a business and they need to make money. I think PD will sell a good amount in the beginning and then word of mouth will keep it selling for months and months. Kinda like all of Nintendo's first party games. Like Mariokart, New Super Mario Bros, Wii Fit, etc....But what do I know, that's just my guess. lol

The AK is the KF7soviet of goldeneye (or KF7 special on perfect dark orignal) you used to get them and a few other classic guns for doing the shooting range to be used in single player with cheats but now they've shipped them over to multiplayer aswell

800 MPS seems to be the deal of the year.I guess the DLC will make the game to cost 1200MSP.But it dose not matter to me seeing how I was going to put down a full 1400 points on this game.MARCH 17 WOOOOOOOOO!!Hey look that day just so happens to be the week of spring break.WOOOOOOO again!
