    Now i am fully aware that rare sold there soul to microsoft but when i go on the wii shop channel i see donkey kong country which was made by rare. I also know that rare is also trying to put there games on the xbox live marketplace now it is a little disapointing that banjo kazooie had to go on there and not on the virtual console.Whats going to be next donkey kong 64 on xbox live marketplace? I mean they need to put some more of there games on the virtual console

    Nintendo bought out all rights for DKC, thats why it's on the VC.

    Rare never put anything on the VC

    Correction: Nintendo always had the rights to DKC, because Donkey Kong is their franchise.

    So basically, don't expect any other Rare games because Microsoft owns the rights to them from buying Rare (except Goldeneye, which is a legal minefield).

    Like I already explained, Nintendo didn't buy the rights, they always had the rights. Donkey Kong is a Nintendo trademark. As to where DK64 is... have you seen how stupidly slow they release these games on the Virtual Console?

    Nintendo owns the DK characters, but Rare owns the actual program code for DK64 game. So they'd have to make a deal together to get it on the Virtual Console.

    Nintendo is releasing games on other consoles... I dunno where you get your information but I suggest looking for it somewhere else if that's the crap you're being fed.

    I think they meant other consoles on the VC, besides the N64...
