Goldeneye 007: Cancelled Remastered Game Footage Leaks Online

Most children of the 80s and 90s will have fond memories of Goldeneye 007 on the N64.

A groundbreaking game for its time that helped usher in a new standard for the FPS genre that can still be seen today.

Goldeneye Remastered

Back in 2007, there were plans for a remastered port of Goldeneye 007 to be released on the Xbox 360.

The game was as good as finished before it was cancelled and lost forever.

Ina 2015 Phil Spencer explained the difficulties in getting the port off the ground and why it was ultimately cancelled.

"Goldeneye rights are so challenging, looked at this many times. Lot's of different parties to work with, we've always given up."

It seems that a copy of the remastered port does exist somewhere on the internet because recently a full 2-hour long play was posted to YouTube.
