    Nintendo blocked GoldenEye XBLA, says Microsoft

    Despite an agreement that would allow dual releases of the game and other Rare titles on Wii's Virtual Console and Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft says Nintendo won't allow the port of GoldenEye on a competitor's system.
    According to Kotaku, Microsoft officials allege that Nintendo president Satoru Iwata blocked the release of a GoldenEye port on Xbox Live Arcade because the game originated on Nintendo hardware.

    Microsoft claims Nintendo was unwilling to reach an agreement, this despite a favorable compromise for both companies that included a profit sharing deal. Nintendo owned a minority stake in Rare before Microsoft purchased the developer in 2002.

    Unconfirmed rumors of a GoldenEye XBLA port surfaced last week, in which multiple sources reported that the game was already in development and less than two months from release before Nintendo purportedly canned the deal.

    Nintendo was not immediately available for comment.


    I can agree with where Nintendo is coming from...GoldenEye came out on Ninty first...so they should have on their VC as an exclusive...and not on LIVE....

    What do you guys think?

    Though, I can see where Nintendo is coming from, I think it's kind of greedy to not allow it to be simultaneously released on XBLA. I don't see what the problem is, especially considering that profits would be shared. Now nobody gets to enjoy the game.

    Wow really? honestly i don't understand Nintendo's logic behind this decision other then it being greed related. People that already own a wii are going to download Goldeneye to the wii, giving you more money. People that already own an xbox are already lost as a costumer so it doesnt matter if microsoft gets the money from them, they already are, it wont affect nintendo at all. This is a simple case of win win, and nintendo is choosing to lose...

    This goes back to the original deal Microsoft made with Nintendo. They said Nintendo can port Rare games on VC if they can also port them to XBL. Microsoft made a similar deal with Castlevania SOTN for the XBL, a PS1 game. By blocking this we all lose. Thank means NO ONE gets Golden Eye. WTF Nintendo?!

    Bingo. I have no friggin clue what the first posters in this thread are thinking. Apparently none of them want to actually download and play Goldeneye on their Wii.

    It's probably just as well. The XBLA version was going to have online functionality. The VC/WiiWare version would likely be inferior or FC infested.
