We’ve said it a lot of times and we’ll say it again; emulators are a must for preserving old games. Not only that, but they allow PC gamers to experience a number of console-only games on their platform. And, surprisingly enough, the Xbox 360 emulator, Xenia, is able to run the cancelled Goldeneye 007 Remaster that was recently leaked online.
Let’s take things from the beginning though. Back in 2008, Nintendo, Activision and Microsoft agreed to remaster the classic Nintendo 64 game, Goldeneye 007, for Xbox 360. Activision was planning to release the game via XBLA. However, and at the last minute, the publisher decided to cancel it.
A couple of days ago, though, a video appeared on YouTube, featuring two hours of gameplay footage from that cancelled remaster. That was legit footage from a leaked build that gamers can download and play.
Now what’s really cool here is that this leaked build is playable on the Xbox 360 emulator, Xenia. Not only that, but according to various reports, Goldeneye 007 Remaster works like a charm on Xenia.
What this basically means is that PC gamers can enjoy this cancelled Goldeneye 64 Remaster in native 4K resolutions.
Now obviously we won’t allow links to pirated content. We’ll also delete any comments that will be linking to it.
If you can’t find the X360 ROM, you can watch the following longplay video for this cancelled Goldeneye game!
