GoldenEye for XBLA Still Alive

Xbox World 360 magazine has hit back after Microsoft Game studios said that an article in this Wednesdays issue about the abandoned GoldenEye for XBLA was based entirely on rumor and speculation. They insist they have an inside scoop that includes comment from Microsoft and four pages of of dazzling new shots. They have also released 2 screen shots and a quote from the feature.

"Explosions and flame effects have been remade from scratch, and rows of trees and new in-game objects add a sense of presence to areas without affecting gameplay. The atmospheric changes are most apparent when playing the Jungle level, where every tree and plant has been rebuilt. Where a green wall at the edge of the arena fenced you in on the N64, now the wall has been removed and a new wall of foliage has been set several metres beyond the original boundary..."

positive. Goldeneye source looks a lot different then this. These screens look more like the N64 version (original) rather then Goldeneye Source, which is polished 3D graphics

What's not to like? (sans RRoD, but 3 year warranty ftw!) :P

its a product that will end up using the rival console producers blu-ray drive, and you can bet sony will jack up the price for xbox consoles on purpose.
The game looks awesome tho, got out zelda for N64 a few days ago and nearly completed it, legendary console and very hard games /me like old consoles

Sony can't jack up the prices. It's not up to Sony, it's up to the BDA. Don't be surprised if the Blu-Ray addon is equivalently priced to the HD-DVD addon when it came out, if not cheaper. It will be the cheapest Blu-Ray drive available.

Well good ole Reggie said a Wii VC port could be in the cards months ago. But with the current XBLA thing going on, I'd imagine Rare would like to get that either out the door (if it is indeed still being developed) or just forget it and move on to the VC port - in which they'd probably announce it as well.

As for the controls, why couldn't it just use the Gamecube controller? I mean, it's like, a N64 controller, just bulkier sorta ...yeah.

I can't imagine that they would continue to say it's true when it's not, especially after Microsoft specifically said it wasn't. I'm more apt to trust the magazine, especially after how many other rumors MS has denied about various Xbox-related products and they ended up being true.
