Microsoft may have just thrown money at Nintendo until they agreed. A "deal" doesn't necessarily mean that the game will appear on VC as well.

That said, Microsoft and Nintendo seem to be getting friendly when it comes to Rare, since there's a Viva Pinata game on the DS and one rumored for the Wii.

In some ways it would make sense for Microsoft to let Rare develop for other platforms, since it would increase their profits and the Rare name isn't as essential to Microsoft brand identity as it was to Nintendo during the N64 days.

Your right.Personally I would prefer Rare to go back to Nintendo.The Wii needs hardcore quality titles and Rare could deliver.But that time is over so its best to move on.

have to be that Microsoft is throwing money at somebody? Just by reading your post..I could come up with another conclusion.....for instance, what if the agreement was Banjo 64 to xbla in return for rare to produce a ds game? Just because Microsoft the company has tons of money..does not mean that they will just continue to throw it into the game division for deals.

I think it makes sense Microsoft whore Rare out to Nintendo just until they make back their $370million investment.

Im sure its not that big of a deal considering all MS had to do was was take the Nintendo logo off of it. It's not that huge that they would have to make a deal to allow it to be on VC.

its sad, but it seems as of lately, Rare's name is almost synonymous in how "rare" it is for them to come out with a solid hit these days.

oh how we miss the good ol' days
