Not for us PlayStation players, though. Maybe we’ll get lucky🤞
Why not both remaster and both online play? Oh well, will look forward to the story levels.
Sorry about PS @MaxCasino :(
Where did you read that? I seriously doubt it won't have online multiplayer on Xbox Game Pass.
I didn't catch that. That's such a shame, especially when the Switch exclusively gets online play. How does Xbox not get the same?
I'm only a PS owner so the Switch will be as good as it gets for me, I suppose. Not shelling out a few hundred bucks for a new console for just one game.
I actually thought it was 780p lol
Regardless, going to have to pick up a Switch early next year for Octopath Traveler 2 and Tears of the Kingdom.
It may seem like that, but given all the rights issues involved this really must have been the best possible compromise they can come up with.
Ok looking at the teaser no word on when just soon so ok cool
So maybe the exclusive bullshit multiplayer will be only a tempory exclusivity?
The Xbox version, despite not being the abandoned XBLA version that leaked, will presumably be running on Xbox hardware to accommodate the updates such as 4K resolution and dual stick support. Live/Online matchmaking probably wasn't developed into it. Never say never, of course, but for the time being that seems to be why.
I'm just glad we're getting it at all in any capacity. The convenience of playing it on modern hardware is wonderful.
Also if you could play too Xbox 360 games online on the newer Xbox fine, why new remaster GE would couldn't technicaly not be possible to let you play online while 2008 canceled one on Xbox 360 was going to get online multiplayer?
Because what we're getting is an enhanced port of the game versus a remaster. Perfect Dark XBLA (and the cancelled GoldenEye XBLA) were rebuilt from the ground up. Effectively what we're getting instead is a direct rip of the N64 version with a few technical enhancements.
Nintendo Switch's online multiplayer for the Nintendo 64 titles is built into the emulator. Not that Xbox couldn't do the same thing, but as of right now there isn't an equivalent option. They'd have to redevelop it for the port to function as an Xbox Live title.
Not to go off topic but Perfect Dark got just as much playtime out of me as a boy as GE and TWINE on the N64 did. Wasn't a new installment announced a few years ago?
This just gets better and better next you will tell me when I buy it daniel Craig will show up at my house kick me in the groin and leave lol
Perfect Dark still gets a lot of playtime out of me, in fact I recently purchased it for my Series X.
Also indeed it was, in fact one of the developers recently came out and said the new game will be a sort of hybrid between the styles of James Bond and Jason Bourne, mixed with that futuristic touch. Hearing that made me extremely excited!
I had a "remastered" version on the 360 many years back, which is when I finally beat the game (that final boss always eluded me as a kid, I could never get past it). It was so satisfying. I even enjoyed PDZ for what it was; the instant action with bots was such a blast.
And wow, that's a great description that gets me even more excited too! Honestly, if it was top notch and had the same atmosphere of the original, I'd absolutely shell out for the newer Xbox consoles just to play it.
I already shelled out for the new Xbox because I sort of had this thought in the back of my mind that if a “rerelease” of Goldeneye ever were to happen, it’d be Xbox exclusive. I’m glad I made the right call in the end, because it’s been only about a week since I’ve gotten my Series X and now we have the official announcement. What makes this even more Bittersweet is that I also own a Switch as well, so I’ll be able to play both versions and be able to reap the benefits of both. I’m just happy to get a Bond video game release, even if it’s just Goldeneye N64 ported to newer consoles, the fact that 007 Gaming fans had to go over 10 years without any official releases was just sad really.
