    It is very possible that Rare will allow goldeneye to be bought on VC. Not like they are opposed to making a profit.

    Meh - it just doesn't seem like they will do it. Especially since Banjo Kazooie 3 is Xbox exclusive. I mean, I know VC and new games are totally different... but it just doesn't seem like a move RARE will make. They want to focus on people getting XBox 360s. And I have heard MANY people say that one of the main reasons they want to get a Wii is so they can play Goldeneye on it...

    Pokemon is the first online game. Elebits is the first game to utilize Connect24. All that means is that Elebits will send screenshots and scores and things to your friends, you can't actually compete against them.

    Ya that is really irrelavent. Goldeneye is an old game, so it obviously isn't coming out for xbox360. So why would rare be opposed to making money just by letting nintendo have it playable on the wii? Rare just has to sit back and collect money from it.

    Because Microsoft bought out Rare. I will be genuinely shocked if we see Goldeneye for the Wii VC. I suspect that it will appear (first or exclusively) on XBLA.

    Exactly... I don't know about it on XBLA though. :hand: I hope not, that's bullshit if it does actually happen.

    But since Microsoft bought out RARE... do they control them now? Can they demand them not to bring a game out on Wii or something?

    Rare can still allow nintendo to put goldeneye on vc. And Microsoft can not let rare do so.

    But you have to realize, microsoft has a lot more to gain then lose by letting goldeneye be released on VC. It's not like nintendo is going to see jack **** of the goldeneye vc sales.

    Yeh, I know what you mean. It just doesn't have that same incredible gameplay it did back when you and three buddies would sit down and play it for hours. What I'd like to see is a Goldeneye Wii or something along those lines, where they just remake the game, but for the Wiimote (which would be fun as hell).

    Good find, Homesrfan! This is what it comes down to. Microsoft owns Rare, Rare owns Goldeneye. If Microsoft says no to Rare, then it means no. Look at it this way. Microsoft is the girlfriend and Rare is the pussy-whipped boyfriend. :D It could happen as long as Microsoft isn't a dick, and the same with Rare. But 3mpathy is right. It's not all that good anymore. Still fun, but wwwaaaayyyy outdated.
