Phil Spencer confirmed to GameFocus that Microsoft was indeed exploring the possibility of bringing more classic games from the Rare catalogue to XBLA. Killer Instinct and Perfect Dark names came up...
Freakin sweet. I hope the decide to include multiplayer/co-op. Would be so fun in perfect dark.
I would love Killer Instinct on XBLA. Not to mention a new Killer Instinct for the 360.
I agree. i dont have a xbox but i would really love to see a new killer instinct, it is my favorite fighing game, i just bought it on n64, even if i know the one on snes was better
KI sucks. Bring on PD.
but it kicks the hell out of Wii's Virtual Console.
Well there is your Golden eye.
To get a good arcade conversion with a nice online mode would be great. Then to round ot the year a announcement of a KI3 would be the shiznit.
Come on I want it today.
Well, Killer Instinct is coming to the 360 but not next gen.
Now all we need is Battletoads.
You just gaved me goosebumps...if Battletoads ever released on XBLA, I would be the first person to download it.
I want Battletoads & Double Dragon. Make it xbl co op and we got a deal. Same with KI and PD.
16:9 and online play for Killer Instinct please. No more of this 4:3 rubbish.
I'm so with you on that one. give me upscaled widescreen pd and its a day one download. 4:3 gaming just looks like crap on a big lcd screen.
about time...now where is my KI3
just get an arcade emulator and a nintendo 64 emulator. simple
anything to snub the 360 eh masko?
They have updated graphics, online-play, and other features making them better than their original counterparts. Not to mention achievements or trophies.
Blast corps please.
Perfect Dark with some "pretty" added and much better controls than the N64 controller (Dual Analog support, for one thing) would be great, throw in Live 2-16 Player multiplayer support and it could probably be one of the best XBLA titles. Also, the Original 2D Killer Instinct with some updating in graphics and the N64 version with the XBLA "Soul Calibur" treatment would be good, especially if they came as a single packaged download. *Fingers Crossed*
Man I loved that game. Hopefully they do an arcade perfect port. CucucucuCombo Breaker. Anybody remember that?
Nintendo will excersise their reputation and corporate muscle to ensure that this does not happen. $niper
F*ck Nintendo, and f*ck you, too.
Nintendo might have less control over these IPs. That or MS gave them a lil more money this time.
The title is deceptive. The submitter left out the word 'eventually' and thus completely changed the meaning and position of the article. They are exploring the possibility. The source uses the word eventually (even though that also is assumptive) If you look at the contributor's post history it is obvious why he intentionally is misleading readers. On an aside, it would seem to be common sense that if MS had the rights to bring Perfect Dark to Live it would have already happened. I would welcome it as I just lost a N64 night before last.
HELL YEAH. PD on 360 in HD with online, coop, achievements, in-game music, and in-game everything? DAMN, I'm feeling more sorry for you poor droids every day! Enjoy FATASS LESBIAN CAKE EATER.
by this post and the reply you made to SNIPER you pretty much gave your self away as 1. a little kid who is learning new swear words everyday or 2. a little pathetic teen who cant control his tourettes even while typing. what year were you born? grow up kid.
A Banjo Kazooie + Banjo Twoie pack would be sweet.
Cinder was one of my favorite KI charactors. The game will be huge(closest to a AAA arcade games can get, despite this being old)
KI, now thats a nice treat.
Oh man. I will be downloading BOTH. Now if Silicon Knights will just make Eternal Darkness for XBLA and a sequel for X360. Battletoads would be sweet as well. I didn't even think about that one til littletad and stryfeno1 said something!
I would buy both Killer Instinct and Perfect Dark for XBLA. Plus I would love to see Battletoads too.
Xbox 3shitty suxorz
AWESOME NEWS! PERFECT WAS KICKAISs. So was killer instinct but perfect dark the original not the new next gen piece o sh!t was sooo awesome. Many more weapons with cooler secondary fire.
Both titles hit my PC a long time ago thanks to the emulators.
I have a doubt about KI, Rare could develop a new KI but take the old KI to the XBL could have the same effect as GE, KI was the nintendo flagship for the N64.
I was wondering why everyone kept saying battletoads....lol http://www.youtube.com/watc... Why I never did beat BattleToads...that game was challeging, more than TMNT's at the time
That'd be epic playing Perfect Dark splitscreen with the xbox controller.
im glad that killer instincts and pd is coming xbla and it will be great playing online :)
PD XBLA .... excuse me whilst i change my pants. ONLINE CO OP, COUNTER OP AND DEATHMATCH!!! I WILL SELL MY SOUL FOR IT.
Perfect Dark is probably my most favourite video game of all time, I'd definily purchase it for the XBLA.
I guess with Nintendo being asses when it comes to Goldeneye these two are for sure the next best thing
In addition to battletoads, super dodge ball would be nice.
