Is GoldenEye 64 ever going to get remade?

It was such a classic, it's such a shame it's not out there via console download or something. They would make a fortune and reach so many new gamers.

Good point. I'm loving my Call Of Duty, right now and Goldeneye64 wouldn't probably do so well today. It would be nice of them though, if they just did it for me.

If the original Goldeneye did get re-released it would obviously only be on either the Wii as a virtual console game, the XBOX360 as an upgraded remake like Perfect Dark or both. This would, unfortunately, leave out folks who are PS3-only... which is kinda lame.
I'm sure if Nintendo got the full rights from Activision (who now have the Bond video game license) and Rare (now part of Microsoft) they'd not only release it on the virtual console, but they'd probably want to release it on the 3DS... saying GE on 3DS would be a BIG seller is a bit of an understatement. People might actually buy some 3DS consoles, too!

As some know, Nintendo has always done things their own way, often times puzzling people. They're very protective of their brands.
Rare started working on the GE XBLA remake before they even knew if it was legal for it to be released. Activision came on board and gave the project a green light. Of course, Nintendo needed to approve the project as well.
Microsoft offered to let Nintendo put the original N64 game on Wii's Virtual Console, while they placed the remake on Xbox Live. Nintendo said no.
