    Default VERY INTERSTING news

    As you know there has been a lot of talk about RARE recently. I have been told by a VERY GOOD source that they have been bought, by Microsoft.Keep reading the mags/websites and you will see soon enough.

    Oh if I am wrong you can boo and laugh at me till your throats are sore, if I am right then you can feel happy that you heard it here first. Cheers

    Well, I have some more news, this is what it is:-

    The only Nintendo game coming is Starfox, and thats it. Donkey Kong racing and a secret platform game were axed SIX MONTHS ago. Perfect Dark Zero on GC (and secret PS2 version) both axed, and Xbox version being done with engine. Diddy Kong Pilot on GBA finished, but not coming out as Nintendo dont want it to..

    Weird huh? They probably spent a lot of money getting it developed and now are ditching it? Must be a really sucky game.

    heh. {{9090}}... never a more astute observation has been made... They will probably buy all of the big game houses and then the only good games will come out on the BOX! Damn corporates!

    I dunno E.B. remember Psygnosis was bought by Sony and their 1st release was 'Porsche Boxter Challenge'. Maaaan, that game sucked! It was the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

    I used to love Psygnosis games too, what have they done lately btw..?

    I think that when Sony bought 'em they took on the names on different studios 'Sony Liverpool' and all that. Pretty sure that some of the people from Psygnosis still work under Sony Comp. Entertainment now.

    As for the GTA stuff - ScE secured a 'GTA' exclusive to Playstation rights for a couple of years I think.

    Psygnosis went through a name change when they were bought by Sony...I they are known as Sony - Studio Liverpool. The last game that I think they released was Wip3out Fusion.

    They also make the great F1 games on the PS2.

    Dont belive me....see here --> [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
