Would it be smart to buy Xbox One for new Perfect Dark, Banjo, Conker

I can't see any of those 3 franchises coming back again and if they did they would likely be a shell of their former selves.

Microsoft have all but ruined Rare since they acquired them by lowering them to being a team of Avatar based dev's and not letting them develop any decent games since Viva Pinata.

No, times have changed and those franchises are as irrelevant as Mario.
It's great to have Perfect Dark HD on XBLA though.

I don't deserve to be so happy. :)

Irrelevant as Mario?
Mariokart wii is the highest selling game after Mario bros

Someone is in denial about the selling power of Mario.

I thought they hinted another rare franchise was coming back...
It may be a while before we see these, but good exclusive franchises esp platformers might do well with so few games on the new system.

Make a proper Perfect Dark. One with personality and competent, quality mechanics with good netcode. Aka not Zero.

Hell, I honestly wouldn't mind if PD2 was a third person shooter or spy game or alien game or whatever it turns out to be.

No. I don't think Rare is allowed to work on anything but Kinect games anymore.
Even if they were the result would be bad, because all the talented developers left before Microsoft bought them.

Rare Staff: But Lord Penello we really want to make normal games aga...

Penello: Get back in the Kinetic cages!!! Finish Kinect Sports 3 and leave your IP's to more talented devs like Double Helix!!!

Rare Staff: Sigh......Where did it all go wrong?
