Here's a rumor that should create a lot of buzz.

Xbox Evolved - Rareware Is Revisiting 007

    Talking with very reliable sources, and seeing evidence ourselves, Xbox Evolved believes that Microsoft, Rareware, MGM Studios (studio that makes the James Bond 007 movies) and Activision (holds the license for James Bond 007 titles right now) have come to an agreement to bring the Rareware developed Goldeneye 007 out to Xbox Live Arcade shortly before the new game developed by Activision is released.

One thing that could quickly flush this rumor down the toilet? Where's Nintendo in all this? Their name supposedly pops up as Goldeneye 007's official publisher and I would think THEY would want the game for the Wii's Virtual Console.

If this IS true, then I can only salivate over this dose of nostalgic goodness. The gameplay would be dated as all hell, but that's why it's an XBLA title and not a retail title. And it doesn't get more fun than planting proximity mines across the whole playing field.

According to many game journalist sites, the XBLA version was almost completed by Rare. However Microsoft and Nintendo were not able to come to an agreement to release the game, so it was cancelled late in development.

I tried it out before buying (arrrrrrr!), and the FF1 remake is a nice bit of fluffy nostalgia. Haven't gotten into the extra dungeons yet, but the "main quest" was still entertaining, and a portable version is nice.
