    I agree with mushroomedmario and elmo 999, I really enjoyed Donkey Kong 64. Luckily I can still play it on my N64.

    first off, theres the issue with DK64 about rare owning the license. same with how everyone wants goldeneye. now that rare is owned by microsoft perhaps there culd be issues there. really though i dont think that an expansion pack can hurt emulation.


    i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see dk64. one of the greats in gaming. MM i could care less about wurst zelda game ever, etc etc

    Rare has already said on their own website that they are willing to release their old games on VC. It probably means Microsoft has plans for online Golden Eye with updated graphics. A similar effect was done with Castlevania SOTN (originally a PS1 exclusive). Microsoft could do this intentionally to harm Sony. I'm still astounded they grabbed Castlevania SOTN, it's currently one of Xbox Arcade's biggest downloads. A major loss for Sony.

    DK 64 shouldn't be a problem, because Nintendo actually owns the rights to the series (that's why DKC can be on the VC). Other Rare games like Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, etc. are more complicated. Rare seems willing, but I believe it's up to Microsoft, since they now own Rare. Goldeneye is further complicated by the film license involved, so that's probably not going to happen.



    I never add friend codes.

    We can always pray that they add Expansion Pack compatibility in the future...

    I guess the same would go for Controller Pack compatibility...

    *looks at Castlevania*
    I don't think you're thinking about this correctly...

    The Wii simply emulates the N64 and other consoles, you don't necessarily need all these minor "paks" to play games. The Expansion Pak merely added more RAM to the consoles and the Controller Pak merely added memory. Are you trying to suggest that the Wii doesn't have 10's of times more RAM than the N64 (which it clearly does or it would be really embarrassing), or even the 256kb of memory the Controller Pak contained?


    As for the Donkey Kong 64 argument, with it being property of Rare and all...it's a pretty good argument but people overlooked the facts that 1) Donkey Kong is essentially first the property of Nintendo, and 2) Donkey Kong Country was developed by Rare as well, and it's on the VC (as Napalmbrain has already pointed out). See his explanation as to why games like the other Rare games are more complicated, though.
