Ooops: Activision's GoldenEye Wii and DS remake leaked photo
Ooops: Activision's GoldenEye Wii and DS remake leaked
by Nick Chester

For many, GoldenEye was the turning point for first-person shooters on consoles, and in many ways defined the Nintendo 64-era of gaming. Since then, publishers and developers haven't been able to capture the same magic of Rare's original. So what do you do? You remake it, apparently.

According to a leaked survey, Activision will be releasing a new version of GoldenEye for the Wii, "developed from the ground up" to take "advantage of the latest technology to deliver the same intense experience with today's graphics and physics." The title will supposedly "modernize" the classic story, placing Daniel Craig in the role of Bond. The survey suggests that many (if not all) of the originals areas from the N64 title will return, along with its weapons and four-player split-screen. The game will reportedly support 8-player online matches, as well.

A potential golden Wii Remote shell, as well as a golden Classic controller, were also hinted at in the survey.

Following this survey leak, Eurogamer has received word that Eurocom (responsible for the N64 Bond outing, The World is Not Enough) will be developing the title, along with n-Space. GoldenEye for Wii, along with an Nintendo DS title of the same name, is said to be revealed at this year's E3.

3DS may be widescreen according to FCC leak photo
3DS may be widescreen according to FCC leak
by Ben Perlee

The FCC is like the ESRB of hardware. Whenever a company tries to get their products certified without the whole world knowing, leave it to them to make a leak. Case in point, the FCC has leaked the above image of a DS motherboard from a test kit. It's a filing by Nintendo and manufacturer Mitsumi, and it's simply designed for approval of the US DS Wi-Fi card. It was leaked last month by WirelessGoodness.

However, the attached image initially did not attract too much attention. It's just a motherboard for the current DS, nothing to pay attention to. Not so, says Digital Foundry, via Eurogamer. According to them, there are some strong indicators that this motherboard is not for the DS, but rather the 3DS. If this proves, true, there could be some interesting implications.

Most noticeable are those big black blocks. Obviously screens, the bottom conforms to the 4:3 ratio currently seen on the DS series. However, the top on is clearly of a different type, larger and closer to a 16:9 screen ratio. Some speculation is that the top one is the 3D-enabled screen, while the bottom is more traditional DS touchscreeny goodness.

Finally, what is even more important is the code name applied to this motherboard. This one is "CTR", which is surprising in that no other DS has been codenamed with this moniker. The DSi, for example, was the "TWL" and the DSi XL went by "UTL". Ultimately, this is all speculation, and could very well be some obscure DS motherboard. Or, it could be a sign of what's to come from Nintendo. We'll find out next month at E3.
