On January 29th, the YouTube Channel Graslu00 uploaded a full longplay of the canceled 360 port of Rare’s GoldenEye 007. Planned to be released sometime in 2007 for the Xbox 360 this port was canceled because they couldn’t get permission from Eon Productions Ltd. who are owners of the James Bond franchise to release it.
Graslu hasn’t said anything about how he got ahold of this, and has only really said that it’ll be released in 2021 (most likely by the people that gave him a copy)
Update: On February 2nd it was released to the public. I won’t be putting a link here. You’re on your own when it comes to finding it.
One common misconception about why this game was canceled is that Nintendo prevented this game from being released because they held some of the rights to the game, and as far as I can tell, Nintendo had nothing to do with it. And as far as I’ve found, Nintendo had nothing to do with anything related to this port. to quote Nick Burton from an interview with VideoGamer.com in 2008
The ball’s not in anybody at Rare’s court really. It’s squarely in the license holders’ [Eon Productions Ltd. ] courts. It’s a shame. It’s kind of locked in this no man’s land. There’s nothing on LIVE Arcade, there’s nothing on Wii.
Graslu has also posted another article about it in the description of the video.
It’s really cool to see the full game in this form, in the past we’ve only had footage of the Dam level. I can’t wait for it to be released, and when it is released I’m gonna load it up in Xenia and give it a try.
