Goldeneye 007 To Re-Re-Release On Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

First there was Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64, it was fun we all had a blast shooting our friends and most importantly it brought a decent FPS to a home console and introduced many a gamer to their first taste of 4-player home gaming madness. That’s something no other console could do at the time out of the box, without the need for any extra peripherals (besides the controllers of course).

Then, GoldenEye got re-released on the Wii in 2010 and…nobody cared. It went mostly unnoticed and ignored, those that did have a chance to play it like it but there just wasn’t enough. The Wii’s lack of real HD quality left the re-release with a kind of bad facelift vibe though, sure it looked better but you felt like Activision could’ve done better.

Which leads us to this news. Activision is planning to re-re-release GoldenEye 007 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. They haven’t announced an official release date exactly but say be prepared for a fall release. The new version of Goldeneye will obviously be in full 720-1080p HD resolution and offer support for the PlayStation move including the sharp shooter peripheral that goes along with it. Unfortunately for Xbox 360 owners there will be no Kinect functionality. That’s not all however, the game will also feature an improved version of the classic 4-player split screen as well as 16 player online multiplayer.

According to Activision the game is being built on an entirely new engine so it should be pretty damned awesome. As long as the gameplay holds up and everything is nicely polished this should definitely be a game worth checking out this fall. If for no other reason than sheer nostalgia.
