If everyone at Kojima Productions left. Do you think they could make a new game as great as MGS4.

If everyone at Naughty Dog left. Do you think they could make a new game as great as Uncharted.

Almost know one who made all them great games at Rare are there anymore. So I wouldnt expect anything great from them anymore apart from more Kinect and Avatar clothing.

The Model T was a great car for its time, but yet those involved in it's creation are no longer there or have left but yet ford has continued to make cars and at times amaze themselves & the public even without those that created the Model T. Can you imagine what other can do with out the constant comparison & judgemental comments .

Pfft.i'd rather have them making them instead of just a bunch of kinect garbage.Them they woudl still be a relevent studio for trying in their curent state however their nonexistant

I still have very good memories of Rare games on the N64.

Then Microsoft turned them into a casual Kinect developer.

I really don't understand what would warrant a disagree with your comment as it is one million percent truth and fact, I love Microsoft and Rare but since they did get taken over by Microsoft they have gone down the shitter. Simple as that.

Really looking forward to seeing what they have for the next Xbox at E3. Really loved everything they've done this generation, Kameo, Perfect Dark, Viva Pinata 1 & 2, Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts and Kinect Sports! The HD remasters of Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark on XBLA were awesome as well! Hopefully they push the next Xbox.

You realize rare has been making rare games for like 3 years, and all potential good games were canceled. Dont get your hopes up especially on Microsoft
Jek_Porkins  +   1009d ago
There has been no official news regarding Rare games, but they have two huge development teams, hired for FPS and Action Adventure game type developers, re-upped the Killer Instinct name, and are rumored to be working on multiple projects.

I bought every Rare offering this generation day one, and damn right I'm getting my hopes up for them and the next Xbox, cant wait to see what they do on it.
LAWSON72  +   1009d ago
Damn you must be a serious rare fan if you bought kinect sports 1 and 2 and those new arcade kinect sport games day one

People are quick to kill Rare under Microsoft but they made some great games. Viva Pinata is and will always be a great game and even though it was a different take on the series Banjo N&B was also a great game.
Jek_Porkins  +   1009d ago
Agreed, but those people are just looking for reasons to hate, and are mostly uninformed to Rare's actual history.

Viva Pinata was as ground breaking and innovative as Little Big Planet in my opinion, it doesn't get the love it deserves, and same thing with Kameo, that was an awesome platform game, it was one of the first Xbox 360 games I bought.

People also neglect the fact that Rare actually built up the Xbox Live Avatar system, it was their idea, which was pretty neat, and the development goes back years before the Wii even released.

Lastly, people say Rare is stuck doing shoverware on Kinect, they've done Kinect Sports 1, which worked great and sold like 5 million copies, Kinect Sports 2 was actually done by Big Park because Rare has been busy working on multiple next gen Xbox games since 2010. Microsoft trusted Rare with their huge Kinect investment, and just people it might not be for everyone, it does have some fun games and Kinect Sports heads the list for me.

Bubble up for not joining the hate train!

These guys have been trying to do something other than M$ avatars for the longest time. Sorry Rare, you where the sh!t back in the day.
Jek_Porkins  +   1009d ago
They invented the Avatars genius.
MilkMan  +   1009d ago
My understanding of this was that Rare was coming up with concepts, but Mii's came out of the gates first.

At the time and (really ever since) although they were planning and doing concepts. The working model was already in play.

However, even if they did first or last...

They haven't really had the chance to do anything else. They've been stifled.

Other than Nuts and Bolts that is.
SDF Repellent  +   1009d ago
Rare last major release was Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts in 2008, I am pretty sure they were concentrating on making a few games for the Next box at launch since late 2008. Remember, RARE is infamous for long development time so they still have a few aces up their sleeve in IPs such as Killer Instinct, Perfect Dark, and Conker. MS just didn't renew the Killer Instinct trademark for nothing.
