    So since Rare is owned by Microsoft we can bet we won't see the good games for n64 on the virtual console (Sorry if this was posted before)
    The best games like Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, and Banjo Kazooie, we won't see =[ Right, I didn't mention Goldeneye, beacuse theres still a chance for it!! EA owns rights to 007 video games, so maybe they could get it on the virtual console, but still....so many great games...oh yah, Donkey Kongs are fine....hooray...like i really care..

    Donkey Kong is supposed to be owned by Nintendo, not Rare

    Wouldn't Nintendo while not technically owning the game still own the rights to license the game? After all you're taking the same information and just changing media...I mean if it were making a NEW sequel to a Rare game I would understand the problems...

    nintendo owns donkey kong so rare could not make another game of it for another console, only for nintendo.

    I don't see why Nintendo can't but the old DK games on the VC they own the rights to them and i heard Rare can still make games for Nintendo handhelds since Microsoft is not in that market. I also heard there is supposed to be a new Diddy Knog Racing for the DS.

    I never heard you couldnt dowload donkey kong games but maybe you can because nintendo owns it and it would be a nintendo game not a rare game.

    No conquer is the worst problem. That game had the best multiplayer ever. And the game was hillarious. That wouldve been the first game that I would download for VC. Good thing I still have 64 - maybe i could pick up a copy of conquers bad fur day at a game swap store. . .

    Donkey Kong games are owned by nintendo, remember it was the first gamem in which mario appeared (jumpman) to save Pauline (no peach) and it was created by nintendo... although it was developed by RARE but it was owned by nintendo (the rights) so dont worry about

    yeah, i think they have already finished making the diddy kong racing for ds, it looks ok but i think that the 64 version looked better. There are all these new characters and stuff on the ds one. I saw in a magazine.

    Actually Rare had nothing to do with the original Donkey Kong game, it was developed indepentdently by Nintendo. Neither did Rare have anything to do with the other pre-SNES Donkey Kong titles (Donkey Kong Junior, Donkey Kong 3 and Donkey Kong Junior Math). The only Donkey Kong games Rare created were the three Donkey Kong Country games, the three Donkey Kong Land games and Donkey Kong 64. Rare never had any right to the Donkey Kong series they simply made them for Nintendo. Also Nintendo own the numerous Kongs Rare invented (Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, Cranky Kong etc) as most of them have appeared in the Donkey Konga games, and therefore should have no trouble putting Rare's DK games on the VC.

    Most of N64 Rare's games I own/ can get (Perfect Dark is going to arrive at my house soon:D ). What I'm really concerned about though is one of Rare's NES titles: R.C Pro-Am. It is regarded, along with Super Mario Bros, Zelda, Metroid and Duck Hunt as one of the NES' best games. Its one of the few great NES games I've never played and I would of loved to have tried it out. Oh and it was also the first big game from Rare and one of the first racing games to use weapons.

    Yes, yes. You know at first when I heard of Rare being bought bby MS, I was really upset, but as soon as I saw Rare make crappy games for MS, I laughed and moved on. Rare has lost it's touch.
