With the San Diego Comic kicking off later this week we have an early reveal of sorts as Activision has let the cat out of the bag: GoldenEye is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360. As a series of domain registrations hinted at, Activision will be releasing a HD port of GoldenEye dubbed GoldenEye: Reloaded for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, with the latter receiving PlayStation Move support.
There’s not too much to say about GoldenEye: Reloaded right now other than that it’s slated to be the annual James Bond 007 video game this year. With additional game features being kept under wraps, if there are any aside from new character skins, I’m somewhat disappointed with how GoldenEye: Reloaded as it kinds of looks like Call of Duty: James Bond Edition. I probably shouldn’t be too shocked if GoldenEye: Reloaded is running on one of the older CoD engines since Quantum of Solace did, but it would be nice if Activision put their full efforts into a James Bond game instead of either doing a rehash or pulling funding from a project midway through, as was the case with James Bond: Blood Stone.
Activision will be showing Goldeneye: Reloaded at the San Diego Comic Con this week so we’ll likely receive some more details or a trailer showing off the HD visuals. I may have wished that Activision didn’t take the route that they did with GoldenEye: Reloaded (give it a HD makeover, throw a few new features in) as it would’ve been nice to see an original James Bond adventure in some form, whether it was another 3rd person shooter, a FPS or even something different like a vehicle based action game.
GoldenEye: Reloaded may not be as exciting as it ought to be but at least we can rest in the fact that as always 007 will return.
