If Microsoft does indeed buy Rare here are some titles we could see on the Xbox.

We could see platform titles/adventure titles such as...

Banjo-Kazooie 2/3??
Banjo-Tooie 2

A Fight Title as
Killer Instinct Series

First person shooter
Perfect Dark Zero or 2?

Action titles such as
Jet Force Gemini Series

Some titles that might not make is

Of course these titles won't make it, they are owned by Nintendo.

Diddy Kong, Donkey Kong, and Starfox cant be made....Nintendo owns the rights to them and Rare just makes them. All the other ones are good possibilities though.

Yeah I knew that they couldn't in all...

What would be funny is if Rare was bought out and made a game just like Donkey Kong and named it different for the Xbox. It would be based around a gorilla. But that wouldn't happen even if Xbox is able to buy them out.

Would be nice to see BattleToads and Killer Instinct on the Xbox though. Of course Perfect Dark would be a for sure system seller. The Banjo series would be a good platformer addition even though I never did play them. Conker would rival the Crank the Weasel series that is coming to the Xbox too.

Conker was developed by Rare. I can't think of any reason why Nintendo would have the rights to him.

I'm praying this deal goes through, 'cause I am seriously looking forward to playing the sequel to Conker's BFD. I honestly think it was neck and neck with Halo for the best game of last year (giving Halo a slight edge because it didn't have a few stupid sequences).

Conker is the property of Rare, not Nintendo so it could be a possibility for the Xbox (and maybe the only game worth from rare these days).

Anyway, you won't seem me rave about microsoft buying Rare. I'd be a lot more happy if they would buy Blizzard instead.
