    doesn't matter rare haven't done anything for ages anyway... the money Nintendo got from the sale will support many other upcoming developers. Microsoft can't afford the time it will take Rare to produce games 1 a year etc is a luxury that will not benefit X-Box desperate need of games now.

    I also think that Rare will be unhappy developing for a firm with a such a cash hungry attitiude over quality.

    i aint bothered m8 - resident evil all the way - unless Microsoft buys capcom - oh god no!!! i will have nightmares now
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Apparently Rare was bought to help design the latest OS.....Windows - That works.

    try here for all the info you would need

    http://www.rarextreme.com/

    somewhere on there it directs you to microsofts purchaces page where they will legaly have to post their purchase once its completed, the deal is expected to be completed and announced at the european xbox show in spain.

    Do the spaniards like failing things, they were the country that put msx's into their schools (another gaming/console hybrid that had a microsoft os and FAILED)

    given that rare havent released a decent game for 2 years, its barely suprising that nintendo didnt want to fork out more money, remember that 90% of the programmers who produced all those great rare games no longer work for rare anyway and that nintendo own most of the copyright characters i wonder just what rare will have to call their games (it certainly wont be starfox adventures will it?).

    I think that microsoft will be wasting a whole lot of money A software house is only as good as its programmers. Many of rare left to form Radical?? (timesplitter guys) and so many will leave to form others later. look at bullfrog without Molyneux!

    The existing team will only be contracted for a certain length of time then they will no doubt be off to create their own start-up again (Ultimate ) Maybe Nintendo will help fund this with the money they bleed out of Mickeysoft! lol....
