Lets pretend there was a Kickstarter to get RARE back in the hands of Nintendo.

How far do you think it could get?

Assuming contact had already been established with Nintendo and Microsoft, and ignoring all the ifs ands or buts surrounding that.

It wouldn't be the same as it used to be.

I'd rather they get ahold of all the old members that left...hell Grant Kirkhope said on Game Grumps that he and a few others have an interest in making Banjo-Threeie if Nintendo came to them.

Start there.

To be fair, the overall plot of the MGS series sounds like it was written by a 7 year old on amphetamines.-CrystalKing5426

Rare doesn't own their IP's anymore, Microsoft does as they own 100% of Rare...

To the people who think Rare still owns their properties... what would happen if Microsoft fired every employee and disbanded the Rare company?

Microsoft most likely would sell Rare if the right price came up, but they would come with no IP's. And asking Microsoft to sell Banjo would be like them asking Nintendo for Mario. Nintendo fanboys would be up in arms at the thought of that even being suggested. So why does no Nintendo fanboy care how Xbots feel when people want Nintendo to buy a big IP from Microsoft?

Nintendo isn't making F Zero anymore so should people make topics about Microsoft buying F Zero from Nintnedo?

Is there any way Nintendo would be able to buy just the Banjo IP back? I mean, Nuts & Bolts did pretty badly on the 360, and Rare doesn't seem to be interested (or Microsoft isn't letting them be interested) in making any followups to it.

Nintendo should just try to take Banjo off MS' hands and get fans of the originals to make Banjo Threeie.

My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

How the hell could kickstarter accomplish this? And what would be the point anyway?

Banjo to Microsoft is nowhere near what Mario is to Nintendo. Change it to Halo or Gears then you may have a point. Banjo isn't a big franchise for Microsoft. That's we have seen only one very poor entry, but to get to the point of the topic it wouldn't be worth it for Nintendo to buy Rare. It's not the same studio it was three generations ago. There's a reason why they do the avatar stuff, and it's that they're not that good anymore.
