GoldenEye on Wii?

Bond shooter on Virtual Console still a possibility

Classic N64 shooter GoldenEye could still find its way on to Wii's Virtual Console despite the many licensing issues, so says president of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime.

Wii's Virtual Console enables gamers to download and play classic games and Nintendo has promised to make between one and five titles available every Monday.

When it comes to naming classic Nintendo games the Bond FPS GoldenEye will be high up any gamer's list as it sold over eight million copies and is still seen as one of the best shooters ever made.

Unfortunately developer Rare is now owned by Nintendo's console rival Microsoft and the 007 license is owned by publisher Activision, which means there are problems to overcome.

Speaking toMTV.com, Fils-Aime addressed the issue and mentioned that there were "a lot of issues there," but then added: "suffice to say we would love to see it, so we're exploring all the rights issues."

So there is still hope...
