Just to kinda confirm what Alpha mentioned.
"The release of the title has been delayed indefinitely, due to a licensing disagreement between Microsoft and Nintendo."

So sorry Indecipherable you are obviously wrong, Nintendo still own rights to the titles that RARE produced. You also states the RARE own the engine (source code) to the game. That would be true but that doesn't mean Microsoft have any rights to that source what so ever. Because at the time of its development Nintendo were paying RARE to development the software so copyright is owned by Nintendo not RARE

Further to someone elses comments, Nintendo never owned RARE they did not sell it to Microsoft. RARE were a development company who made titles for the N64 they were not an exclusive company to Nintendo. Microsoft went on to buy out RARE which at that point they stopped producing software for Nintendo.

In a perfect world Nintendo would let MS offer the improved Goldeneye on the Xbox Live system provided Nintendo can also offer it on the WiiWare channel or something.

I would be very sceptical about this report tbh. Fair enough Rare was the developer of the game but Nintendo still own the franchise. If these games are to appear on xbox live server either Nintendo have sold all rights to MS or for everytime MS sells the game Nintendo will be getting royalties.
