GoldenEye reboot unlikely to hit PS3/360

Activision’s Julian Widdows has adopted a ‘never say never’ approach to the likelihood of Wii shooter GoldenEye making the transition to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, though at the moment the prospect of a port isn’t looking too likely.

Chatting with the folks at during an event in London today, Widdows commented, "We would really hope that everyone who wants to play it will go and play it this year," adding, "We’ve spent so much time and effort, personal time and effort… you know, kids have been born! There’s a list of GoldenEye babies somewhere! This is the console we’ve made it for."

While not ruling out the possibility of a PS3/360 conversion, Widdows made it clear the Bond outing has been made from the ground up specifically for Nintendo’s white wonder.

"Never say never! " he stated. "Who knows? Things happen, don’t they, with big publishers? But for the time being it’s all about the Wii, and that’s really how we hope people will go and experience it, because that’s how it’s been built. It’s not been built for the PS3 and Xbox 360, it’s been built for this."

Due out later this year, GoldenEye is a re-imagining of the original 1997 Nintendo 64 classic shooter, itself based on the eponymous mid-90s 007 flick staring Pierce Brosnan. In addition to featuring updated plot mechanics and gadgets, the game will also utilize the likeness and voice talents of current Bond actor Daniel Craig, with Dame Judi Dench reprising her role as MI6 boss M.
