I don't know about some of you but XBOX owns the company Rare now. That's awesome, they're the makers of a ton of classic games. Now there's a good chance XBOX will be getting games such as Perfect Dark & Killer Instict!!!! SWEET BABY!!

Wow!

Not as in the whole deal thing...

Or how old it is...

but the whole wow factor here is that you said "XBOX owns Rare."
If you dont know what company is behind the Xbox then I am scared...

I'm just hoping Rare doesn't delay any of their games as bad as Star Fox Adventures. But at least they should give the Xbox more quality games.;)

I could careless if Microsoft bought out sega. I like that they bought out rare though. Rare made all the best games on N64. Hey, Liquid, Perfect Dark is one of two confirmed games for the xbox. Sweet eh?

This is REAL old news. Microsoft bought Rare sometime ago. Nintendo still has the license for it's characters, which means no Donkey Kong or Banjo, but Rare already said that Perfect Dark Zero is coming to Xbox, so it ain't old news.

Actaully Microsoft gets Banjo Kazooie. All Nintendo keeps are Star Fox characters and Donkey Kong characters.

Whow....I didn't think this thread would be up this long. I thought it would have died out by now.
