GoldenEye was a landmark time in the industry’s history. For many, it marked the success of the FPS and it certainly was a defining moment for the N64. Likewise, many of us can recount the days when parties would consist of four friends huddled around a 14 inch TV screen to play one of the four player modes. Gawd, those were the good ole days.
At this very moment, it just kind of dawned of me that GoldenEye is the best and most successful film to video game crossover we’ve ever seen. On an unrelated note, according to leaked sources, Activision has decided to flog it til it’s dead remake the game that Rare made so popular.
The game is supposedly to be updated and “modernized” to feature Daniel Craig. Taking advantage of today’s technology, it’ll have the classic 4 player split screen and support up to 8 players online. As well, a golden controller and a gun shell for the wii mote is rumored to be released alongside the release of the game.
According to Eurogamer.net, “Development duties have been split between UK-based Eurocom and US-based n-Space.” Also rumored, the game will be released sometime in November and will be announced at this year’s E3.
