    I found this off of IGN, here is a link http://wii.ign.com/articles/817/817147p1.html . While seeing Goldeneye on the VC is probably still highly unlikely due to licensing issues, the chance is one step closer. Also seeing Perfect Dark on VC would be exciting, especially if they could somehow add online play to it.

    Any Donkey Kong character is sole ownership of Nintendo. Diddy Kong Racing, Killer Instinct will eventually launch on the Wii. However, Golden Eye has a multi liscense that more than just Rare is fighting over. Golden Eye will eventually appear on the Wii or 360. More likely the 360. Tradewest did a chunk of Battletoads, so Rare doesn't really own them either and that game should make a VC launch. Banjo Kazooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark will not appear on the VC. I hope that answers all questions.

    Summary: Rare games that don't launch on the VC will show up on the 360.

    Golden Eye on the VC would be pro, I hope they can work the licensing issues out.

    You'll most likely see Goldeneye, as sagema said, on the 360 before the Wii any day.

    I really before they do release goldeneye that they give it the same red carpet treatment they give Ocarina of Time when it was released as a collectors disk on the gamecube.

    They make it sound as if it's all on Nintendo....but Rare is probally wanting mega bucks to release their titles....

    I think when they say "it's ultimately nintendo's decision" they mean "It's ultimately nintendo's decision to pay licensing fees and royalties."

    Still, I'd really like to see Banjo-Tooie, I was a huge fan of the first game but didn't buy the sequel ; ; I've regretted it ever since.

    They better just get them all on the VC no matter what it takes, as far as rights and money issues. Whats the alternative just never release them and all involved make $0.
