We've been expecting you
Last year's GoldenEye 007 on Wii was a particularly enjoyable slice of James Bond action, bringing the beloved N64 original up to date with online play, experience and all that good stuff. If you were looking on from the sidelines, filled with jealousy, that can stop soon: Activision has announced GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is coming to PS3.
The enhanced version of the Wii game will feature the usual perks — a high-definition overhaul and 60 frames per second smoothness — as well as full support for the PlayStation Move and Sharp Shooter too.
Activision will be bringing the game to retail later this year just in time for the shooter-packed Christmas period. We'll bring you more as we get it.
