Activision: GoldenEye will make a killing this Christmas

Firm expects new Bond to more than hold its own against Wii's big hitters

Activision expects GoldenEye to make a killing at retail this Christmas and emerge as one of Wii's biggest selling games of 2010.

Releasing on November 5 in the UK, it will go up against the likes of Donkey Kong Country Returns, Epic Mickey and Just Dance 2 this holiday.


But David Tyler, general manager for Activision's licensed business unit, told MCV he's more than confident in the game's sales potential.

"Our expectations are that GoldenEye 007 will be one of the best-selling games for the year on the Wii," he said.

Tyler also said that 007: Blood Stone - which is set for release on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and DS on the same day as GoldenEye - will "offer gamers a more brutal and gritty Bond experience than ever before".
