GoldenEye re-release not happening

Rare FPS favourite consigned to the past

Fanboys everywhere with fond multiplayer memories will be sorely disappointed to hear that a GoldenEye 007 release is, apparently, not in the works.

Rare's response to the hotly anticipated query was that "we're long past the stage where an agreement was on the card." This means no Virtual Console release, no XBLA re-make, and no PSN port.

Rare did end its response on a hopeful note, stating that, "stranger things have happened", but that doesn't change the fact that die-hard fans of the original N64 classic will have to look elsewhere for their FPS fix.

If you're in dire need of a GoldenEye fix, however, there are a few ways to scratch that itch, including the stellar Half-Life 2 modification GoldenEye Source.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
