Goldeneye NOT Virtual Console Bound?

Xbox site Xbox Evolved has posted a rather worrying story regarding the N64 classic Goldeneye. According to the site, Rare is gearing up to publish the game on Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade service.

Rare apparently has already started to seek the permission of current Bond licence holder Activision. Other classic Rare titles such as Perfect Dark and Banjo-Kazooie are in the pipeline as well, if the site is to be believed.

If this is the case then it's quite likely that the rumoured Virtual Console release may not happen - to which we say a hearty OH NOES!
