[big Phil says] I don't want Rare to mean Kinect sports.

The only thing that exists now in relation to the golden days of Rare is the name alone. Pretty much everyone at that company now had nothing to do with their classic games. More power to them if they are able to do something with their IPs like Banjo and Gemini without repeating a similar mess like Banjo Nuts and Bolts.

Looks like they'll be pushing Rare in the direction of working on their old popular IPs and new ones instead of just Kinect games!


It's about damn time! Thanks for the update on Rare, I'm glad to have them back to what they do best.

Rareware is dead. This Rare is just the empty shell left over.

Most of the people that made Rare good back then left before they were sold to Microsoft, otherwise I don't think Nintendo would have sold them


Rare was never owned by nintendo. They were a 3rd party studio that previously only made games for nintendo consoles, including using the Donkey Kong IP, but they weren't owned by them.

Yup and they had a chance to buy their shares fully and Nintendo decided not to. Which is when Microsoft swopped in.

This, plus rare went to Nintendo first and Nintendo realized they were pretty much a lost cause, so they did not buy them.
