This year has had several high-profile Rareware prototype games get released that were never meant to see the light of day.
Almost a decade after it was developed, we can now play the Goldeneye 007 remaster for Xbox 360 that never made it to the Xbox Live Arcade store due to licensing issues between MS, Nintendo, and MGM.
This download is a surprisingly playable beta of the iconic single-player and multiplayer games, working with both retro and modernized graphics in the open-source Xbox 360 emulator Xenia.
Here are some instructions on getting this to run on Windows, followed by the download link.
