Goldeneye (N64) on the iPhone?

What're the chances of seeing this game on the iPhone and if so, when?

I know I am getting ahead of myself since were only seeing Doom and Wolf3D now but I am just curious.

I believe it was settled that Activation holds the rights to new Goldeneye themed game releases after they bought the rights from EA in 2006 but Rare owns the rights to the N64 version. So Activision can release a new Goldeneye game but not a port of the N64 game and Rare can't release a new version of their existing game. Although Activision has been testing the iPhone waters with 5 of their properties licensed to the company Glu for development. So while a Goldeneye game is possible, it may not be the game you want.
