Allegedly from the Xbox Live HD update of the game, this footage from Youtube channel Rare Thief (heh) shows 30 minutes of gameplay highlighting a ton of tweaks to multiplayer and game itself, such as 60 FPS gameplay and the ability to switch between the original Nintendo 64 visuals and the remastered style on the fly.

Though we did get a remaster of Perfect Dark for Xbox Live, (which I believe has much better multiplayer), Goldeneye has the distinction of holding the nostalgia crown.

Copyright issues with Nintendo kept them from moving forward, but this probably would have sold incredibly well.

All that said, the Goldeneye 007 remake on the Wii is criminally underrated and worth checking out.
