None Nintendo should buy Banjo & Kazooie back and buy the Fable IP from MS.


Lol and kill them off like F-zero and metroid? No thanks.

Ninty should trade Star Fox (they're not doing anything with it anyway) for Banjo-Kazooie (Since MS isn't doing anything with it).

Lets have some fun with numbers.

Nintendo has made well over $30 billion dollars since 1981 and only recently posted it's first annual loss- mainly due to the 3DS launch. The 3DS is now topping the hardware charts; all it took to sell was a string of game releases.

Wii U has had an even slower launch, but first party games are finally releasing in conjunction with a price cut. The problem is solved.


Microsoft has made a total of.... $0 on their gaming division. In fact, that's a little generous, seeing as they've lost billions. They failed to post even one annual profit until 2008, and even then, the money earned from the 360's late success pales in comparison to the losses from the original Xbox. Or even just the losses from the 360's first few years on the market.

Couple the tremendous amount of money Microsoft's gaming division has lost with the fact that Xbox One has had a disastrous reveal, poor overall reception, and stiff competition from Sony, and this could very likely be Microsoft's last console.

Good luck with that whole "buying Nintendo" thing there.

None. Them buying Rare was far too much.

One Banjo game in two gens if Microsoft really cared about Banjo or any of the Rare IP's we would've seen a couple of those IP's for the original Xbox. No Perfect Dark, Banjo, Killer Instinct, Jet Force, ect.. for the Xbox at all. They only classic IP we did get was a remake of Conker one of the worse games to remake as some of those in game jokes didn't age well at all. They even managed to ruin the mulitplayer on that release.

But a guess that's your point about them making a Banjo game. Also I wouldn't give them Star Fox especially with all those rumours that Platinum games is dying to make a Star Fox game. If 101 and Bayonetta 2 make a decent profit maybe Nintendo will let them make a Star Fox game though I really don't want to see Crystal or the furries twerking all of the place like Bayo. That may end up selling quite a few copies to the furry crowd however. So I'm sure a Platinum take on Star Fox will be a success.

With the WiiU failing and handheld gaming dying out to smartphones.


Lmao


WiiU is selling worse than Dreamcast at this rate. Once the PS4 and Xbone come out WiiU has no chance to recover at all.
Oh and Handheld is dying in the western world, sales don't lie. ;)


Wii U selling worse than Dreamcast? Someones dreaming, that's for sure.

And handheld dying out....LOL troll topic confirmed.
