Mario references in Xbox 360 games

as you all now Mario is a nintendo owned property. which is why i don't know why he is parodied in mutilple games on the xbox 360, like in eat lead, the simpsons game, and assassins creed 2. can someone explain to me how they can do this? if they get away with this than why is it so hard to bring the original Goldeneye to the xbox 360

Nods or small parodies to a character doesn't mean they can bring an entire Nintendo/Movie Licensed product to Xbox.

...It is nowhere near illegal to reference something that is why they can do it. As for why the original Goldeneye wont come to xbla....it is the property of Nintendo.

It's okay to make a parody of something, reference.

It's a legal thing. Nintendo owns it, trademark or copyright, whatever, but it's okay to take it and make it your version of it, just not the exact same crap.

Yea, which is why the references aren't the exact same copy of Mario or whomever their parodying.

Heh, not exactly on topic but your signature made me think of it....wouldn't it be just the best if they brought Chrono Trigger to xbla. That and Final Fantasy 6 and I would just be happy as hell.

They brought Chrono Trigger and FF6 I think - or maybe 4, I don't know/care too much, haha - to the PSN. Or at least they were supposed to.

But yea, even though I have it for the SNES, I would love it if they brought it to XBLA.
