XBOX Evolved (http://xboxevolved.e-mpire.com/article/No_Title/4272.html) have apparently been talking to “very reliable sources” suggesting that Microsoft, Rareware, MGM Studios and Activision “have come to an agreement to bring the Rareware developed Goldeneye 007 out to the XBOX Live Arcade.” The title which is expected to be released before Activision’s retail game is released will feature updated graphics and XBOX Live play.

XBOX Evolved also mentioned that Rareware are planning on releasing other classic titles such as Perfect Dark and the original Banjo-Kazooie... Personally, it seems a bit over the top. What do you think?

Your thoughts?

Over the top? This is the best piece of news for the Live Arcade since it's release! :D

Realistically thinking, all of those games are better than their sequels (apart from possibly Banjo Kazooie, we'll have to wait and see about that one). I personally can't wait for these to eventually hit the Live Arcade. :p

Dude, I fucking loved the 007 games and if Microsoft brought it to Xbox Arcade I think that, that would be all I would be playing all day.:eek:

Ah, yes, I was just reading this on another forum, it should be cool! I know I'll be playing this for a long time.

ZOMG, DO IT!!! Goldeneye 007 on the 360 + achievements would be so much fun! I can't use that old control system anymore so this would be so much better.

This is going to be awesome, i absolutely adore the 007 games and is one of my favourite series of games ever.

Goldeneye, The World is Not Enough, Tomorrow Never Dies, Nightfire (my fave), Everything or Nothing.

All fantastic!

Goldeneye has been the best and will probably always be the best James Bond video game ever made. Its a classic! How can you not love it. I hope it is coming out and with online play that would be even a bigger plus! :p Now all rare needs to do is realease the orginal Banjo games on the arcade and my dreams will be fufilled.

And for those of you that have played Banjo Tooie, you've all played the fps multiplayer. HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE!!!

Multiplayer will be awsome, needs to be upped to 8 player for team matches. who can forget sticking remote mines to someone, and sending them off as a running bomb, awsomeness that it may be coming to XBLA

Tatanko

All three of those games were awesome, Goldeneye being one of my all time favorites. That would absolutely make my entire year to have them on the Arcade.

Ah, Goldeneye on Xbox Live would be sick. I used to play this game so much when I played N64. I'd definitely buy this game if it came out in the marketplace. :D

Thats what I've been saying for years.
Anyway it's good they decided against not to remake them. I just hope the whole 2 thumb sticks don't ruin the gameplay. Sure it sounds nice but the whole game was designed around the C buttons, so you never know.

PerpetualHeaven
01-09-2008, 07:04 AM
I guess I'm the only one who doesn't see this as a big deal...

I hope that's because you've never played Goldeneye and Banjo and Kazooie because if you have and you're saying this, I shall smite you!

I think the main problem I'm having here is COST. I wonder how much they'll price it because frankly, I could just pull out my N64 and play it if the price is not right. The most I would really pay is a full microsoft points card.

I realized I was going to have to eat my words when I read this earlier today. For the longest time I've been calling it a long shot, but now it just might not be that long of one.

Definitely awesome news, I'm not sure how I feel about the updated graphics and all, but will still welcome the changes. Although I still wouldn't mind running around with a block head. :p

01-09-2008, 07:41 AM
WOW!, goldeneye !
For me it's the best fps of all time. Golden eye from N64.:Bounce:
I remember i've bought this console only for this game, I hope this info is true.

I've got perfect dark too, but it's not james bond, i felt this game was missing something to be as good as goldeneye. I didn't like it.

If this does happen (which I really find doubtful) I hope it comes with a version with the original graphics..they always made me laugh.

Just like the rest of the world i'm sure. Microsoft could seriously make a HUGE profit if their clever enough to bring Goldeneye to the 360. The multiplayer was genius.

I'm so happy about this! It wouldn't be a big deal if I still had Goldeneye, but some jack ass stole it from me...

01-10-2008, 08:36 PM
I was only a kid when those games came out and my mom only let me play E rated games. So I missed out on GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. If those games came out on the 360, it would be really tempting for me.

I would love, if Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie XLA.

01-11-2008, 04:53 AM
Wow, cool news. I hope it really happens. Definitely would be one of the arcade games I wouldn't think twice about buying.:p

Goldeneye would be a bigger release than GTA 4. I used to play that game all day long tring to do the levels in under the time limit. The level after the dam was the hardest on 00 agent. The one where you had to liase with Dr Doak (i think).

golenyeye comes out on the 360 kiss Bye bye to the ps3 you can keep shitty metal gear solid 4 and sims. LOL

I wouldn't go that far, you can play Goldeneye right now if you want, just get a N64 Emulator. It doesn't have mulitplayer but it is still great.

I stil have a n64 with goldeneye. So I can play it if I want but still imagine it coming out on live how cool.

exo-apollo
01-11-2008, 02:13 PM
Yeah the multiplayer would be awesome. I still have my N64 as well ,but the control stick is stuffed on both my controllers so i cant use them. It's a shame i want to play Ocarina on a tv again.

I remember playing this on my N64 years ago, it was a great game. Ironicaly I just bought the film on DVD a couple of days ago.

killerc0P
01-11-2008, 03:58 PM
I played the game before I even saw the film. lol

I couldn't believe how similar the two were. At the time the graphics were amazing and the multiplayer was so cool. It took me about 3 months of solid play to unlock all of the cheats and unlock to the two secret levels and gain 007 status.
The best thing was that you couldnt use the cheats to help you with any of the levels that you hadnt completed in under the par time.

I've already signed the petition LOL

I never got around to posting it, but when the rumor was at it's high point I sent a message to my contact at Activision asking if they had any plans to release Goldeneye on the XBLA before their upcoming Bond title and all I got was this:

"As far as your questions goes, Activision does not comment on matters of rumor and speculation."

-sigh- What a lame answer :p

Xbox arcade version of this would rock. They never quite captured anything like this game again and it's a revolution. I just don't see it happening in the end though, something tells me it wont, and if it does, we'll be in for a long wait.

01-27-2008, 12:55 AM
I think it's not even going to be a full version like many other live converts and we're going to be pretty disappointed.

01-27-2008, 01:00 AM
Yeah, if they bring GE and PD to XBLA I don't care how much it costs. I want these to on XBLA more than most retail games that are coming out in the future (except for GTAIV and RSV2 of course lol).

Z3R0 S1X
01-27-2008, 04:26 AM
If this turns out to be true... Goldeneye could be one of the biggest games on Live for along time. Microsoft knows that people will buy it and/or Perfect Dark so they might as well pay whatever it takes to get both of them on the Arcade. I doubt this happens, but it'd be nice.

gatorbait
01-27-2008, 06:31 AM
I think I just missed the Goldeneye phenomenon and sadly I think this game hasn't aged well especially for its genre. I was only about 7 when the game came out and that was around when I was being introduced to games so this game was a bit over the top for me at the time. Going back and watching it it just feels like for a FPS the 'WOW!' factor isn't there as much with all the great FPSs that have come out over the past 10 years and how far the genre has come. I would be looking forward to a Banjo-Kazooie game. Only played it back when I was like 10 and don't remember much of it. I wonder when we'll hear more about these.

Kmoney roc
01-27-2008, 06:49 AM
I hope they can pull this off, Goldeneye was my favourite multiplayer game for ages. I also had Banjo kazooie too which was good fun. I would love to see mario kart on xbox live arcade but that wont happen in a million years.

Conker Rules All
01-27-2008, 08:04 AM
dude for any one of these games i'd pay 15 dollars (1,200 MC points) so i think they should give in because these games will have fans join up on xbox live from the wii and it will give users a great addition to their experience

If this is true, I would expect for other games that aren't as popular by the same developers to appear, such as Donkey Kong 64(I doubt that would happen, since it's basically a Nintendo game, but I was just throwing out the only example I could think of).

If we get games with that amount of data into the arcade, I would expect Tony Hawk 1 at least, as well as Pokemon SNAP ;]

I do hope they give the games a makeover though, because just exporting onto the 360 as is wouldn't be too exciting. I am also looking forward to the achievement list for these 3 that were in discussion, because I don't want something like "Seriously..." to appear on an Xbox LIVE Arcade game(only 200 points).

FoxRacing1234
02-10-2008, 10:20 PM
If it does happen, it'll probably be awhile before it actually comes out unfortunately. This game ruled in its day!!! I loved the motion sensor mines!

I also signed that petition and I saw that some dumbass said that he would pay 3000 ms points for it. Hopefully if it comes out for Live it'll only be 400 but I'd pay 800 for it.

02-10-2008, 11:19 PM
400?! that's a bit hopeful! It'll be 800 MP minimum i reckon!

Well if they were to enhance it and everything I would expect it to be 800, but if they leave it the same they should keep it 400. they kept most if not all of the old arcade games 400.
