GoldenEye Designer "Would Like" To See It On Virtual Console

Nintendo 64 title GoldenEye is a classic title and seems like a perfect fit for the Wii's Virtual Console. Seems, that is.

Alas, the Rare development game doesn't look like it will because of sticky legal issue: Rare is owned by Microsoft so that nixes the Virtual Console, and GoldenEye was first released on the N64 so that makes an XBLA release hard.

GoldenEye designer Martin Hollis certainly would like to see it on the Virtual Console, saying, "There's always someone with some exclusivity agreement, so there's lots of lawyers... I'm not going to hold my breath. I'd love it to happen, but I can't see it."
