The Wii re-imagining of GoldenEye seems be coming along nicely, but Activision isn't too keen on the idea of bringing the game to other platforms.

"We would really hope that everyone who wants to play it will go and play it this year," said Julian Widdows, executive producer at Activision. "We've spent so much time and effort, personal time and effort... you know, kids have been born! There's a list of GoldenEye babies somewhere! This is the console we've made it for."

Widdows' comments, made whilst speaking to VideoGamer.com at a preview event in London today, will disappoint anyone who was hoping that the game might eventually appear on the PS3 or 360. Still, Widdows refused to rule out the possibility entirely.

"Never say never! " he said. "Who knows? Things happen, don't they, with big publishers? But for the time being it's all about the Wii, and that's really how we hope people will go and experience it, because that's how it's been built. It's not been built for the PS3 and Xbox 360, it's been built for this."

GoldenEye, which is being developed by Eurocom, was presented alongside Bloodstone - the new Bond game from Bizarre Creations. We'll be running previews of both titles later in the week.

Well, I can see a problem launching the game on the PS3 and Xbox 360 at the current Wii launch date, because that would interfere with the sales of their flagship FPS series, known Call of Duty. However I wouldn't see any problem launching at a later date (probably somewhere between Brink and RAGE, as to let hype die down/ not have to compete as hard). Assuming the Wii version lives up to the stratospheric expectations (which it probably won't), then the PS3 and 360 version would have everybody bouncing off the walls and ready to jump off dams. And by stratospheric expectations, I'm speaking of the enhanced recreation of the experience that made the original. But solely because it is on the Wii, my expectations have fallen. I am not looking forward to this game on the Wii (Inferior graphics, usually faulty controls, horrible online for responsible adults) but at the same time, it is good to see the Wii have a potentially great exclusive.

That's actually cool man, I mean it's a great opportunity for Nintendo to reel in more fans of the console.

I love the Wii, I love the original GoldenEye, just feels right that it's Wii only.

Very glad the developers have obviously focussed on getting the best out of the Wii rather than some cross-platform mash to suit everyone. Here's hoping it's brilliant!

:) , It may be mean that I am happy it's just that the wii never get anything near desireable on the shooter front, I just want a shooter for once that people can't say it would or is better on on another console....
