Golden Controller Confirmed

Written by JBond007 on Thursday, 12 August 20106 Comments

Following on from our Goldeneye preview the other day, confirmation of a special, limited edition golden classic controller has been given by Activision. There had been rumours of this possibility, not only because the original N64 version came bundled with a special golden controller, but also due to pictures of a gold Wii Zapper controller doing the rounds on the internet.

David Pokress, Head of Marketing at Activision, said the controller “was a tribute to the golden gun”, last seen brandished by Francisco Scaramanga. Including a Zapper in the package would have made more sense, it would seem, but he goes on to say that it will give “shooter fans a familiar control scheme”, which includes those accustomed to the original’s controls, one would presume.

Pricing on retailer sites in the US list the game on it’s own at $49.99, whilst the bundle, called the Classic Edition, is $69.99. Amazon UK price the game at £29.99, so one would guess, if Europe are to get the golden controller as well, that the bundle price will be around the £45 - 50 mark.

Goldeneye 007 Wii will be a new take on the N64 original. As well as being able to use the classic controller for that original experience, there are control options for the good old Wii Remote and Nunchuck, either with or without the Wii Zapper adaptor, so there should be a form of controller for everyone.

    Who doesn’t like video games! The old GoldenEye was also really cool, one of the best games for N64, back in the day!
