“This is the epitome of a classic reborn,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing.  “We know that fans love the original  GoldenEye film, so our team worked closely with the original screenwriter and film talent, along with the devoted developers at Eurocom, to create a modern reimagining tailor-made for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers around the world.”
