Rare Fans: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Well, lets see. Rare have created two first party titles for this year and made the Avatar system for the 'New XBOX Experience' to tempt new gamers in from the Wii and Microsoft probably own the IP of those for future titles.
Quite possible, they've pretty much done their job in the eyes of MS. MS got a successful IP (Viva Pinata) and a system (Avatars) out of them and probably own BK's IP.
= Wham Bam, thank you Rare.

Expect Rare to be shuffled around and to lose all quirky identity that they've stood for so many years or just to be left out in the open with no publisher if both games don't perform as great as GeOW2 or Fable2.

...for getting rid of Rare? Sounds like MS is not just screwing the little guys anymore, it's the up yours treatment for everybody.

Microsoft is trying to say that they don't need the hardcore gamers anymore just like nintendo and Microsoft is out to get the big bucks that the Wii has been cashing in for the past year. Customers support is more worth than money and this is something Microsoft has yet to learn.

Too bad that they don't know that Wii was a trend that is fading out. It had it's peak around summer this year. Everyone knows that doing too much makes you fail at everything, just look at too human. I hope that Microsoft has an escape plan if this new casual 360 fails horribly.

Bad editing? The title makes no sense and has nothing to do with the story/blog/opinion.
