Dont tease us by putting Conquer next to the rare sign. -_- lmao.

Bigpappy2949d ago

M$ has finally given them the tools to do what Rare does best, and that they are truly excited.

I am eager to see what rare did with Natal on their first attempt.

Wizziokid2949d ago

I want Conquer 2 :(

ON topic - Let's hope they don't disappoint, they really didn't win me over with Banjo but Perfect Dark Zero was good, i guess.

darkmurder2949d ago

Lol I don't know what game it is you guys want but CONKER would be great.

Inside_out2949d ago

Natal is gonna be huge....This is what Rare is gaming...E3 should hold some surprises....

Ignorant fanboys....scared should be....Voice activating/recognition with controller less something out of star trek....DAMN...if they can keep the price, they're the only game in town...Every kid out there is gonna want to talk to Milo, a game that will be available at launch....

What's the PS3 Move got??? has is gonna keep their arms in the air to play a shooter....DUH....MOVE is a complete rip off of the need a eye toy, then you need the 2 controllers AND then you need a much is this gonna cost? there any reason for someone with a Wii to buy move and a PS3...HD is not gonna be enough, it hasn't been so far....Wii, 65+ million and counting....Sony....they just don't get it....

E3 will make or break Sony this gen....M$ sitting pretty....

green2949d ago

I think you guys expecting a new version of an old IP will be disappointed.IMO Rare will create a brand new experience around Natal. Anyway, i cant wait to find out more about their new game.

maka2949d ago

first , if you watch the gdc psmove demo you can play shooters with the move sitting down and you hands dont need to be in the air.
second , theres gonna be a bundle with the ps move the pseye and some party game for under $100,which sounds pretty reasonable.
third , if this new game is just like ricochet game the plays exactly like the old ps2 pseye but with better graphics then the project natal is just like the new pseye it can also track body movement, i havent seen enough of Natal for me to think otherwise.

maka2949d ago

I find it funny that you said Playstation Move have nothing, when Natal only have Ricochet. For your information the playstation move will bring better FPS experience and will also bring strategy and dungeon crawler games to the ps3. now what can Natal do again? oh yeah eyetoy games.

captain-obvious2949d ago

good luck rare
i wasnt impressed by any of your games in the last 5 yaers
the last rare game that i actually liked was Conker: Live & Reloaded on the xbox

thats about it from that time (2005) till now

Rare better announce something big. They have under performed for several years now.

-MD-2949d ago

They've met my expectations. Loved PDZ, Kameo and Banjo.

lowcarb2949d ago

I too loved Kameo but it was a dissapointment when the game turned out nothing like there vision on Xbox. If I remember correctly it was like a musical (space channel5)and seemed way more magical.

Elven62949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

Kameo, Banjo, and Viva Pinata were pretty good, Perfect Dark Zero was ok but the multiplayer was the real draw. They did an amazing job with Jet-Pac Refueled on XBLA, you get an entirely new game, a retro classic, multiplayer for both, etc all for only $5!

I'm just guessing but maybe Rare is going to have a heavy hitter like PD2 release next year? Gears of War 3 comes out in April, not Fall like the series usually does, maybe Microsoft has something planned Fall 2011 that involves Rare?

Montrealien2949d ago

I love how he said they have underperformed for 7 years now. I guess Mickey's Speedway USA on the game boy color and Star Fox adventures for the gamecube where their last great games. rofl.

for the fun of it, and something people usually forget about Rare, is that they make a lot of games. So in the last 7 years, here is what they have released.

Donkey Kong Country: Game Boy Advance Nintendo 2003
Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge: Game Boy Advance THQ 2003
Grabbed by the Ghoulies: Xbox Microsoft Game Studios 2003
Sabre Wulf: Game Boy Advance THQ 2004
Donkey Kong Country 2: Game Boy Advance Nintendo 2004
It's Mr. Pants: Game Boy Advance THQ 2004
Banjo-Pilot: Game Boy Advance THQ 2005
Conker: Live & Reloaded Xbox Microsoft Game Studios 2005
Donkey Kong Country 3: Game Boy Advance Nintendo 2005
Kameo: Elements of Power Xbox 360 Microsoft Game Studios 2005
Perfect Dark Zero: Xbox 360 Microsoft Game Studios 2005
Viva Piñata: Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows Microsoft Game Studios 2006
Diddy Kong Racing: DS Nintendo DS Nintendo 2007
Jetpac Refuelled: Xbox Live Arcade Microsoft Game Studios 2007
Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise Xbox 360 Microsoft Game Studios 2008
Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise Nintendo DS THQ 2008
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts Xbox 360 Microsoft Game Studios 2008
Banjo-Kazooie: Xbox Live Arcade Microsoft Game Studios 2008
Banjo-Tooie Xbox: Live Arcade Microsoft Game Studios 2009
Perfect Dark Xbox: Live Arcade

For an under performing studio, they sure do work alot. Thats almost more games then Bungie, Naughty Dog and Insomiac combined In the same time frame.

BlackTar1872949d ago

unfortunately almost all the games from that list i was excited for when i read were on gameboy advanced.

I love rare but i walways will goldeneye and perfect dark on n64 will forever be in my memory and loved all there new stuff on consoles was very poor IMO only .

wait i liked diddy kong racing but im not 100% rare made those.

Tony P2949d ago

@Mont: ^^^Exactly.

I feel kind of sorry for them. They have a wealth of great titles and yet, people say they have made nothing because it isn't a Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, or KI when in truth their best titles aren't rated M. People dismiss the games as "kiddy" and move on.

What Would Kratos Do2949d ago

A first person Killer Instinct?
Probably not.

My money would be on something like Viva Pinata Party Island Natal. Which will most likely be sh!t.

aviator1892949d ago

Here's to hoping that Rare has managed to make something that will redeem themselves from previous games in this generation.

DarkTower8052949d ago

Well, it's most likely this will be a children's title since its coming from Rare. I'm still waiting to see a more mature Natal game.

Pennywise2949d ago

Except if you've played any games with the eyetoy. Are these guys serious? I understand Natal improves upon the PSeye tech, but to just disregard it ever happened?

Shaman2949d ago

Its totally different ball game...its like comparing ford model t with ferrari.Same with move and wii...

Hallmark Moment2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

Black and white TVs(PSeye), 3D LEDs(Natal). This is the way consumers and developers will see it.

Are you lost? Why did you start flame baiting in a Natal article talking about PS eye?

La Chance2949d ago

Same old...same old...sound like a broken record. *sigh*

lowcarb2949d ago

So you expect everyone to kiss Sony's behind whenever something is made for Natal? Your jealousy makes me happy!:) Thank You Sony!!!

Elven62949d ago

Once again people disregard the contributions of the Sega Dreameye in the gaming space to spin things to appeal to their arguments. :(

Pennywise2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

So you guys are okay with Rare saying that natal is the first camera ever to be used for game controls?

I am not trying to bash here, but rare totally neglected that they aren't the first ones to do this. They are just the first ones to massively hype the product and mass advertise.

@Elven - TBH, I didn't even know about that. I will give credit where credit is due. Either way, Natal is not the first. I guess Sega was.(Thanks for the info)

Hallmark Moment2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

I never heard of it.

I guess when it came out I did not care or follow gaming out side my living room or Fred Meyers, the camera only being in Japan also factors in this.

It looks like Sega got raped by the current big three and then had their belonging stolen.

lowcarb2949d ago

I actually remember the dream eye and til this day think the Dreamcast was ahead of it's time. Natal definitely isn't this first camera to be used in games but Rare might be the 1st to actually implement it on a whole different level.
