    Rare Games on Virtual Console

    As most of us know the video game company Rare is now owned by Microsoft, which means on the Virtual Console Rare games will not be playable because they are owned by Microsoft now. This is a huge dissapointment. No Conker's Bad Fur Day, Banjo-Kazooie, Tooie, and Goldeneye.

    Well that sucks, trust Microsoft to ruin gaming lol. Why did nintendo sell rare to microsoft again? There must be a logical reason behind it.
    What do you call a button masher on the Wii?

    Nintendo didn't own Rare to begin with, I think. Rare just allowed themselves to be bought out.

    Hopefully they can work out a deal with Microsoft, but I highly doubt it.

    Rare was created by Stamper brothers and when they decided to sell the company they first offered it to Nintendo but they didnt buy it for some reason. After that Rare offered the sale to microsoft which of course they took up cause who wouldnt buy that many franchise game licenses and the company name, especially if you have all the money in the world

    That was a terrible decision by Nintendo, Rare games are Nintendo's best sellers, or at least for N64 they were. But, I already have Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, and Goldeneye.
