    Donkey Kong 64

    Hey i looked for this post and couldn't find it, sorry if i am just repeating people. Donkey kong 64 was one of my favorite games, but i understand it was owned by rare. And i know rare sold theirselves to microsoft or something. Does that mean donkey kong 64 won't be seen on the VC? Or is it still owned by nintendo?

    Sorry, I'm afraid it won't be coming to Virtual Console any time soon seeing as Nintendo and Rare aren't talking to each other any more. There's an argument over Goldeneye (another Rare game) coming to VC aswell. However as long as Microsoft owns Rare, they'll ask for a cut of the profits if Donkey Kong 64 is put on the Virtual Console and might even demand it is put on Xbox live arcade.

    Oh, you don't have to worry about Donkey Kong. DK is Nintendo's property, so they retain all rights to it. That's why the 3 DKC games are on the VC. However, Spinty is right about other Rare games.

    The Wii won't need any sort of Expansion Pak thing, it has more memory than the N64.

    The 2D Donkey Kongs for the SNES were completely Nintendo property. However Donkey Kong 64 was made by Rare. Although Nintendo owns the Donkey Kong franchise, they don't have sole ownership over Donkey Kong 64 hence Spinty was completely correct in his last comment.

    And I said the Wii is more than capable of filling in that extra RAM. It's an emulator, it doesn't run the game exactly like an N64 would.
