I'm going to not buy the Microsoft rumor of a sequel to a new console already being in the works. I believe the XBLA ironically though.

Sounds like the rumored 100th XBLA title that the folks over at xblarcade.com were crowing about in November.

Those are some nice scores for Culdcept Saga. Hope it finds an audience.

Who has the rights to GoldenEye anyways?

Didn't Reggie say he wanted to get it on VC?

I still think the best option that Nintey/MS could agree on would be to release it on DS.
