Goldeneye 007: Reloaded comes to Xbox 360 and PS3 this November

Out: November 1st US, November 4th UK

Seeing a couple of N64 title re-releases on the Xbox 360 over the years, such as Perfect Dark and Banjo-Kazooie (and Tooie) got me hoping that one day they would re-release Goldeneye.
 
My hoping days are now well and truly over! Well sort of anyways.

Activision has stated that the release date for the remake of Goldeneye is set to hit shelves in the UK on November 4th. Initially I thought this would have been a downloadable game from either Xbox Live Arcade or the Games On Demand section, but it turns out its going to be on disc probably retailing for around 40 quid as well.
 
However with the release of BF3 the week before, and then COD:MW3 only 4 days later (8th Nov), then Skyrim on the 11th November, this game will release with bad-timing written all over it.  From the amount of fun I had with it on the N64, I’m hoping (see I’m hoping again) this game is going to deliver something special on Xbox 360.
 
Being a re-release doesn’t mean it’s the Wii version with prettier graphics either, oh no, the team behind it have developed a brand-new engine for the Xbox 360 and PS3. A couple of things to expect in the remake are enhanced HD visuals and increased environment frame rates of 60fps.

The PS3 version will release with a special ‘Double O-Agent Edition’ which has PSmove compatibilities and a few other extras thrown in. PS3 gamers will also be given an extra downloadable character alongside their purchase. The Hugo Drax character (From the 1979 film Moonraker) will be available to download for free and is playable in both split screen and online multiplayer modes, wielding his Moonraker laser pistol.

It is Activision instead of Rare which will be publishing it, so im not too sure on how it will turn out. I know it will never compare to the N64 version, but I’ll certainly give it a try (via rental) when it releases on November 4th.

After selling my N64 along with the best games quite some time ago-and being a Goldeneye die-hard-I am pretty excited about being able to play Goldeneye once again, at least for 5 days anyway (thanks Blockbuster). Heres a short video of some online multiplayer action courtesy of IGN, Enjoy.
