    Rumour has it that microsoft has agreed to buy the liscensing for goldeneye to allow nintendo to put on the VC if they can put it on the Arcade.

    :smilewinkgrin: I am so hoping that this will come true.:yesnod:

    Fact: Microsoft, and or Nintendo will launch Golden Eye on their classics sections eventually. The question is which system, and when? Both would be great.

    Don't get your hopes up just yet. Even if they agree who can put it on their download service, they also have to contact whoever owns the rights to the Bond franchise these days (I think it's probably EA or Activision), and they could say no.

    Don't Microsoft have the rights to this.

    And they won't give it to Nintendo.

    No, Microsoft only own Rare. The rights to the Bond series belong to someone else.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a new Bond shooter was released,

    The way the rights are held now, this would be very plausible and a very good business move for each console. It would be great if Microsoft and Nintendo could agree to this -- though, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Xbox 360's version of course would add 200 achievement points to it, and maybe online gameplay. The Wii version of course would work on the Wii.

    I do not believe that whoever owns the right to the bond franchise decided what happens with it, they didn't own it at the time and that's what really counts. However it wasnt just Rare that made it, Nintendo had a part so even though rare are owned by microsoft that doesn't change the fact that they both have to come to an agreement not one without the other.

    If it was so easy for microsoft to have this game on their arcade it would be done by now, they both have some say and i'm not to sure they will ever come to an agreement, but we can hope so.

    And the fact that they both own a part why would microsoft pay to have it and let Nintendo have it, this could easily be the other way round?

    It seems that there are so many legal issues it would never happen unless; Microsoft, Nintendo, Rare and EA all got together if that were the case I doubt Microsoft could tamper with it I think a remake is your best bet

    No one knows who owns the rights, the only way it would happen is if all of the companies agreed, then they would cover all of the possibilities of who owns it.

    I don't think that the owner's of the bond rights have any say in the games release on the VC, they would probably go on the same agreement, whatever that was, when the original game was made, which still stands today becuase the game is still sold in some places.

    EA and Activision never say no to free money. If anything they'll hold the game hostage to the highest bidder.

    Here's what I figure Nintendo and Microsoft's reasoning is. They both want to make money, and 007 would be an amazing seller. However, Microsft owns rare, who made the game, so Nintendo would have to make them sign a contract to clear up all lega issures. For Microsoft, however, the game was made for the N64, so they would need to have nintendo sign a contract to get it on their arcade. So basically, both own partial parts of 007, and neither can grab the game without the other party cooperating and signing a contract.

    Nintendo has to sign a contract to let microsoft get the game, which would help them, but in return microsoft would have to sign a contract to let ninty get da game on vc. So it's a win-win situation, and this is good news for everone!

    But Nintendo has been stubborn to help anyone in the past, but the temptation of 007 is too great for them to ignore. EA (or whoever owns bond franchise nowadays) has to sign a bunch o' contracts for either company to get the game, and they might sell to both, the highest bidder, or the most favored company. If they all sort this legal crap out, then we're all happy!

    Basically, maybe microsoft and ninty might be starting to team up, which is very very good.
    Microsoft + Nintendo = Sony pwnge!!!!!:cornut: :ihih:
    (only if everyone cooperates... i know they can if they aren't stubborn!)
