damn that sucks
OMG WHAT WILL I EVER DO WITH OUT RARE HANDHELD GAMEs
hopefully, hopefully microsoft will make a handheld and that rare will release games on that
Just don't put it in your pocket after a charge.
Why, will they be using Sony batteries?
Makes sense, no msoft system (Handheld) for them to develop on.
MS purchases Rare. Rare only works to make MS money. MS doesn't have handhelds. Rare cannot make a game on a handheld that MS doesn't have. Isn't this obvious? Journalist really have become lazy or think readers are ignorant to take their articles as news.
well the only games i like from rare is conker and perfect dark
You beat me to it
In other news, Rare does not develop good games ANYMORE either.
you have to remember its rare in name only its not the same people that made ki or rc pro-am just like atari :)
Very misleading title. They aren't developing any right now, but their handheld division is still active. For all of you saying Rare doesn't make good games anymore, have you played Viva Pinata? Or Nuts & Bolts (I'll never know why people slammed this game)? If not, then quit spouting uneducated opinions.
I always wanted a BatteToads N Ninja Turtles game, what a waste of a company.
Rare is one of my top three game-developing companies, alongside Treasure and Harmonix. But that doesn't mean my opinion is completely biased and shot to hell: Rare is one of the few developers that is trying to push innovation in their games. Even if their innovations don't always work, or some of their ideas get lost in the translation, and word-of-mouth, there is no denying that Rare is one of the smartest and most innovative developers out there right now. Anyways, I'm glad they're not closing their handheld division. Although some of their handheld games were not the most impressive, the past couple ones that I've played were fine enough (Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge). Here's to hoping they keep this up :D
