'Historic' Rare franchise for Xbox One to appear at E3, Microsoft says

Microsoft is promising 15 Xbox One games from its stable of first-party studios in the first 12 months, a mix of brand-new IP — like Remedy's Quantum Break — and established franchises — Forza Motorsport 5 from Turn 10 Studios, for example. One of those Xbox One titles, destined for E3 2013, will please fans of veteran developer Rare Ltd., Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer told Polygon. (E3, Rare, Xbox One)

Well, that's good news. I've been wanting to see them back on the xbox for the longest time.

Now...about those internet connection requirements.

My only concern is that most of Rare's talent has already left... Whatever it is, I hope they do it justice.

Same here. But if it's Conkers Bad Fur Day 2 I MIGHT actually consider purchasing an Xbox1. And that's saying a lot considering how bad they fucked up today
gamer42  +   555d ago
I find that odd, why make an ACTUAL rare game after the real talent of rare left. They should've done it when they had the chance.

At this point, there is no game announcement that will make me buy an Xbox One (and anyone can feel free to screencap or bookmark this, because I'll hold the same stance if PS4 does it) because of the strict rules on owning your games.

Games are tied to your account. You don't own them. No used games (unless you pay the fee or "trade" using Microsoft's online store TBA). Mandatory installs. Mandatory internet check-up every 24 hours. No renting or borrowing games (unless you pay the fee). No backwards compatibility.

Sorry. Not for me.

Based on your comments your mind was already made up before we knew anything LOL Actually 90% of the drama over Xbox One fits in that boat.

INB4 trolls talk about how Rare is dead or how it'll be a Kinect game.

It could end up a very fine game whatever it is for all we know. I don't have the highest hopes of Rare producing an amazing title (well not as much as I used to), but I will not judge the game until I have seen and or played it. I'm excited to see a classic brought back.

dude with all of the past BS could you really blame them,knowing rare of today and that banjoe kazooie, and perfect dark games as an example the game may lose its soul anyway.
Jek_Porkins  +   555d ago
Past BS? I bought Kameo, Perfect Dark Zero, Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts, Viva Pinata 1 and 2 and Kinect Sports, I enjoyed all of these games very much, I also bought the HD versions of Banjo 1 and 2 off XBL, so I think I might have enjoyed those games more than a lot of others that came out.

Anyway, I guess we will see at E3, I'm stoked though!

Poor Rare

grabbed by the ghoulies 2 because you know Microsoft won't give gamers a true game.
darthv72  +   555d ago
for great reference to such an under rated game.
M-M  +   555d ago
If it's a true sequel Banjo Tooie, they'd better not screw it up.
gamer42  +   555d ago
not nuts and bolts 2, not nuts and bolts 2, not nuts and bolts 2,not nuts and bolts 2...
It's going to be nuts and bolts 2 isn't it...
I hope. I really do. I may not get an xbox one, but for the sake of those classics gamers have come to love, they better not ruin it.

Can't they just write that off as like a dream in the game

Like the start of Banjo Threeie will be Banjo waking up and telling Kazooie about his nightmare which will make references about Nuts and Bolts. Just make the whole thing a humorous joke and all will be fine and dandy

Hopefully it's either Killer Instinct, Conker or Banjo Kazooie.

which it was all 3
whoyouwit04  +   555d ago
Like I said F#$king wait for E3 for the games and then lrts see who has the best exclusives.
mydyingparadiselost  +   555d ago
Doesn't matter, better consoles will have better games with less BS attached to them.

Killer Instinct 3 almost confirmed, WAITS.. In other news all the negative BS floating around about MS is just that, proof: http://www.theverge.com/201...
yugovega  +   555d ago
um if you read the site you linked to it proves the rumors true. the xb1 needs an online connection. being always on and requiring a connection at some point is the same thing to most. if I cant go to the store, buy a game, and play it without ever having to be online then the system requires me to be online.

2nd they say you can play at a friend's house as long as you use your id. well some people use their credit cards online so they are not going to put that on a friends system. and what if that friend doesn't have online? so I let my friend borrow my game, give him my id and he can play. so does that mean that while he's using my id online I will be blocked from paying my other games online?

It is Killer Instinct. MS renewed the trademark not too long ago and it is indeed an historic IP. I don't see it being anything else.
azshorty2003  +   555d ago
Killer Instinct Kinect!! Oh yea, now that will be a Killer revival.... :/
ylwzx3  +   555d ago
The sad thing is people will still buy this system. It ticks me off people are willing to support such nonsense.
air1  +   555d ago
It fn better be killer instinct!
Ashunderfire86  +   555d ago
Killer Instinct 3 is the historic game to show for E3, they renewed the trademark. Wish it was Perfect Dark 2 though. Perfect Dark is my favorite game of all time next to Goldeneye.
xamtheking  +   555d ago
Unless it's a Conker game, it's gonna suck
BlaqMagiq24  +   555d ago
If it's not Killer Instinct it's an epic fail for me. Rare deserves to be treated with better respect and Microsoft will never see it that way. Just let them go MS.

Ultraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Combooooooooooooooooooo
CanadianTurtle  +   555d ago
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Everybody relax and hold your horses. Don't get too excited. Remember, BanjoKazooie(360) and PerfectDark(360) were also historic RARE franchises. Look how they turned out.

RARE isn't the same as it used to be anymore, just remember that.
-MD-  +   555d ago
Would just like to say Perfect Dark Zero was the most fun I ever had on 360 during the first 6 months of it's life.

I think it turned out great although it hasn't aged very well. My experiences with people in and out of the game makes me a firm believer that the people that disliked the game were genuinely terrible at it.

I like Perfect Dark Zero, but they made the game way too cartoonish than it's serious predecessor on N64. Rare still had all the original game developers on the team at the time. They even said that in a interview back in 2008-09, that they were going to make Perfect Dark 2 more serious this time around. I digress.

Perfect Dark Zero had it's moments online with 32 players. Plus Rare said they could even raise the amount of players online to 50 with no problem on 360. Perfect Dark Zero play like a cross between TimeSplitters and the original Perfect Dark. It had a alot of maps to play online plus 4 player splitscreen. I truly hope that eventually they make Perfect Dark 2.
