GoldenEye 007, from Activision and Eurocom, is exclusive to Nintendo because of a gap in the Wii's line-up and because Activision wanted to partner with Nintendo. That's according to Brian Pass, senior producer at Activision.

When asked why GoldenEye 007 is exclusive to Nintendo platforms, Pass said: "There are a number of different reasons for that. One's we have a partnership with Nintendo. It's a great opportunity. This game was originally on the N64, so there's the nostalgia factor for people that are Nintendo fans. So we wanted to partner with Nintendo for this.

"There's opportunity. So, the opportunity on the Nintendo Wii platform is huge. There's roughly 12 million Wiis in North America. But it's not really a console that a lot of shooter fans are playing on. So we wanted to offer them their own first-person shooter, that's unique and exclusive to that console."
