Speaking to CVG, industry analyst Michael Pachter said that a rumored GoldenEye Wii remake will release to "underwhelming" sales.
"Given the track record of 'hardcore' Wii exclusives, I would bet that sales are underwhelming.
"It's a funny thought to resurrect a 10 year-old brand - maybe longer - and keep it a Nintendo exclusive. It is unlike Activision to do an exclusive, and I am particularly surprised that they would do it with GoldenEye. Read More
Now that Treyarch has become an exclusively Call of Duty studio, the developer seems to be setting itself to very high standards. So much so, in fact, that it claims this year's Wii release of Call of Duty will be as close as possible to the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

The Wii Zapper? It's cool, in a Tommy Gun sort of way. The Nyko Perfect Shot? Also a cool way of killing things which cross your screen.
But sometimes you want something a little more high-powered in feel:
For that, behold the Sniper Rifle Gun for Wii, from CTA Digital. It features a removable stock and barrel, magazine tube, sniper scope, and stand, so you can customize it how you like. Unfortunately, the sniper scope is only there for aesthetics, and "not gaming accuracy". Naturally, it incorporates the Wii Remote, and can even accommodate the Wii MotionPlus. Read More

Though Infinity Ward and Treyarch are both behind one of Activision's most prominent franchises, Call of Duty, the two don't seem particularly close, and certainly not like teammates. If anything, they seem more like rivals. Here is what Infinity Ward Creative Strategist Robert Bowling had to say about their relationship during GameTrailers' Bonus Round.
See what was said, after the cut. Read More
In a recent Activision/Blizzard press conference in Portugal, one of the slides in a presentation shown had the new Call of Duty Wii game, Modern Warfare:Reflex. The slide stated the game will indeed support WiiSpeak support. The picture you see above serves as proof (kudos to FNintendo for taking the picture). Until we see some more evidence, however, this will remain as purely speculation.
Modern Warfare: Reflex will hit stores on November 10. Read More
Nintendo has released the planned publishing schedule as it stands for the Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi, from both themselves and their third-parties. A lot of definite dates are not set in, instead referenced as "Fall," "Holiday," or "November," for example, but nonetheless serves to give us an idea of what the coming months will bring.
"This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household."
Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that.
