  • Rare says no to games on Virtual console

    At last weeks Game Developers Conference Matt Casamassina from IGN got to talk to Rare & Microsoft about if Rare were going to released there old Nintendo 64 games on the upcoming Revolution Virtual console.
    Read below to find out what they had to say about this.

    Virtual Console: Rareless {blogs.ign.com/Matt-IGN}
    Well, here's something interesting from the Game Developers Conference 2006. Met with some Rare / Microsoft people who confirmed once and for all that Revolution's Virtual Console will not see any Rare-owned licenses. What does that mean? No-gos include Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, and Conker's Bad Fur Day. Not happening on Revolution. Neither are gamers likely to see Goldeneye 007, unless both Rare and new license holder EA commit it to Nintendo's platform.

    On a brighter note, any title developed by Rare that is fully owned by Nintendo could very well show up on the Virtual Console. Donkey Kong 64. Diddy Kong Racing. You get the point.

    We maybe out of luck in geting {Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, or Conker's Bad Fur Day} on Nintendo's upcoming Virtual Console but we can look out for Donkey Kong 64, Diddy Kong Racing + any games that were developed by Rare but now are owned by Nintendo also Rare are still developing DS games so we may still get a new Banjo.

      booo. I think RARE is not fully realizing that the games they now make SUCK. and that it is in their best interest to milk their old classics for all they can get. Porting Banjo and Kazooie to next gen is NOT going to fly.

        Odd... I thought Nintendo bought out Rare when Goldeneye proved to be successful...
        change must come from within

          Fuck Rare. The team that brought us games like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Conkers are all moved onto other things. If Rare was smart, they'd cash in on their actual good titles. No Goldeneye is understandable, but not having the others is just retarded.

            it's hardly a surprise cos why would microsoft who own rare or at least a large share in it from my knowledge want to support the new nintendo system in anyway

              Rare still makes GBA games and they've recently assembled a DS team as well though. Makes no sense.

                          FPS game's are going to be better than ever with the revolution controler.

                            that's because those handheld systems don't really hold any threat to the home consoles what so ever therefore microsoft have little to lose and much to gain in terms of sales rare make for the handheld systems, while if they have games that rare own be played on the revolution it's a direct competitor and could disadvantage microsoft far too much especially since xbox has it's xbox arcade service which the xbox360 has
