In the Japenese version, it states that the mine and cloaking device comes from Perfect Dark. I don't see how they would be able to do that, seeing as how it was developed by Rare....Oh, well.
"Reggie Fils-Aime is basically like the devil, except instead of claiming the souls of mortal men, he takes their names, and instead of burning eternally in the dark fires of the underworld, he works at Nintendo."
When the game came out, Rare was still in the hands of Nintendo. The mine is the same type as the one in Goldeneye, though perhaps they were hinting about what it might look like in PD0 (or PD2...whatever). Of course, the cloaking device is a bit strange to have labeled as TOP SECRET...perhaps another artifact from the PD sequel.
Who knows :S although with the cloaking device they state that it is from the Carrington Institute (I think) which means that it is definately from PD. I haven't got the proxy mine yet so I'm not sure about that one. I hated the mines from PD becuase they looked so stupid IMO. Goldeneye's ones looked kewl
Sorry if any of that info is wrong ^^ because I only got a Gamecube/SSB:M/that trophy today.
well think about it... its a spy thing it should be comfodential (SP?)... i really think that it is just a little thing that they added for the game. look at the fan, they just put that in, it didn't come from any game. its just this little joke type thing.
It is just the spy thing as mentioned earlier. They want it to be not known of the origin. That way some geek, like me or you (vague, no one in specific) would play and play till they can get the "secret".
I think they did that because they didn't want a game rated Teen to reference a very violent game rated Mature (both Cloaking Device and Proximity Mine). I'd say that makes sense.
