Activision: GoldenEye 007 to fill a gap in Wii market
Activision has been explaining their reasoning behind bringing GoldenEye 007 back exclusively for the Wii.
Activision's Brian Pass told Videogamer that they had two very good reasons for the Wii exclusivity deal - one being that they saw a gap in the market on the Wii that GoldenEye would fill and two being that they really wanted to build a partneership with Nintendo. The nostalgia factor also played a part in their decision.
Pass said: "There are a number of different reasons for that. One's we have a partnership with Nintendo. It's a great opportunity. This game was originally on the N64, so there's the nostalgia factor for people that are Nintendo fans. So we wanted to partner with Nintendo for this."
"There's opportunity," Pass continued. "So, the opportunity on the Nintendo Wii platform is huge. There's roughly 12 million Wiis in North America. But it's not really a console that a lot of shooter fans are playing on. So we wanted to offer them their own first-person shooter, that's unique and exclusive to that console."
