Microsoft owns Rare so I dont see it happening. Rares ds games are an exception.

Nintendo put the kibosh on GoldenEye coming out on the 360 by threatening Activision, so I guess this is Microsoft's turn at stopping these games from reaching Wii users. Makes sense really. It's unfortunate too because I'm sure lots of Wii users would love to play the Banjo and Kazooie games, especially with their (slight) graphical upgrades.

GoldenEye should have came out months ago and everyone would have been happy. Oh well, maybe this game will change Nintendo's mind after seeing how well they do on XBLA.

IT's such nonsense that people cry for GoldenEye, what is wrong with Perfect dark(they played the same and PD was an improvement anyway)? Or at least the damn engine.

Am i misisng something? is it because Nintendo was the publisher of PDn64?

Perfect Dark was sweeeeeeet!

Didn't like the alien shooting parts as much as the people shooting parts.
Shooting people feels better somehow - don't ask me why.

The lighting in PD at the time were great and the Pro Logic Sound for explosions was really cool too.
Ahh... I remember playing that on my first home cinema set-up.
Why has Nintendo never progressed past Dolby Pro logic since the N64?
Anyway I digress ... great game!
Wasn't PD one of the first console FPS co-op games? Been a big fan of Co-op ever since.

There's nothing wrong with Perfect Dark, it's just that if Rare and Microsoft wanted to put it out on Live Arcade, Nintendo couldn't stop them. I don't know why it hasn't been done yet, I'm sure if the demand was there it would come out in the not too distant future.

Nintendo may have published the older games but they lost the rights to them when they sold Rare. It's just like a book being published by one publisher for so many years, then changing. Heck, look at iD software's titles. They have (especially Quake and Doom) been published by a few different companies already (GT interactive and Activision off the top of my head). Probably more and better examples then that out there I'm sure.

GoldenEye, on the other hand, has been stopped by Nintendo, so it is obviously the game and reason to look at why Microsoft would deny Banjo-Kazooie games on Wii Channel. Well, maybe not, maybe they just don't want to release games on another publisher's medium, especially around the holiday season. Anything that might push a few Wii consoles into peoples homes around this crucial time is probably a bad thing from their point of view.
