I was hoping for

"Microsoft locked us in the basement and forced us to make all these f****** Kinect games"

I left empty

'I think we were handed a poisoned chalice'

Sounds accurate when describing something coming from MS
Take One look at the resolution and walk away...

[quote]'I think we were handed a poisoned chalice, ' he says, wearily. 'We were being asked to make the games we'd always made for an audience that didn't want those sort of games. The reason we did Black Widow, Crackdown and aged up Kameo was because we were trying to bridge that gap but Microsoft wouldn't let us.'[/quote]

Bridge the gap that separated their original fanbase and the Kinect? Is that what they meant? That's quite the challenge and quite frankly, I don't see why Microsoft should've stepped in. Its a challenge that Rare I think would've been able to meet. Its difficult to program for because of all the issues that need to be taken to consideration, but Rare is talented.

If I misunderstood what was being said, then I am sorry. Rare has my utmost respect though.
Wonderful! Time for a celebration... Cheese for everyone! ~Sheogorath

IIRC rare was waiting to be bought out by Nintendo. It didn't happen, and the next two big names on the list were Activision and Microsoft...

Talk about though decisions.
