    Perfect Dark On XBLA...

    Mebbe.

    http://uk.xboxlive.ign.com/articles/970/970984p1.html

    For those who CBA to read it, some Rare geezer has posted a pic of a new Rare Xbox theme, and you 'just happen' to be able to see an icon in the latest games played part of his screen, that looks like Joanna Dark... and it's not the icon from Perfect Dark Zero.

    Put 2 and 2 together, and you get Perfect Dark coming to XBLA.

    It's not what everyone actually wants more than anything (Goldeneye on XBLA) but it would be good, so long as they do something about the slowdown that stopped the N64 version being a ton of fun.

    Might be one to keep an eye on...

    Is nobody else extremely excited? Even at the slim prospect of this actually happening?

    I want perfect dark more than Goldeneye.

    Seeing a Dragon rifle spawn then using the alt fire on the gun to set it to proximity mine then dropping it at the same point was great, same as a double shotgun blast THROUGH a metal door when you saw it open, the uzi like pistols with tracking bullets, the laptop sentry gun or the farsight xr-20. Then there is the PROPER pistol whipping and the rocket launcher being able to fire round corners....

    Not to mention the knifes that would poison the enemy if you threw them, that was great!

    Oh...and ELVIS!!!!!!!!!

    It still doesn't make up for Golden Eye.
    "The less you eat, drink and buy books; the less you go to the theatre, the dance hall, the public house; the less you think, love, theorise, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you save – the greater becomes your treasure which neither moths nor rust will devour – your capital. The less you are, the less you express your own life, the more you have, the greater is your alienated life, the greater is the store of your estranged being." Karl Marx

    There is no chance of it coming out to be honest.

    IIRC Rare (MS) own the code but Nintendo own the rights to the game hence releasing perfect dark

    And Activision (I think) own the Bond license right now. I'm not sure but I remember reading that it was MS, Nintendo and someone else bickering over who gets the cash prize monies

    They need to make this happen but I'm not holding my breath.

    I checked last night and the PD theme costs points. Is it free for Gold?
