    Of course Rareware are going to say this, they've developed Kinect Sports and have a lot riding on Kinect's success or failure.

    They've already alienated one of their most dedicated fanbases, to the point that they disbanded.

    The fact that a company can go so rotten that its no 1 fan site closes must say something about Rare and who its associated with, just think where Rare would be if it was still owned by Nintendo

    Rare started to suck when the people that brought us DKC [and banjoo?] left them
    or at least i started losing faith in them at that point.

    oh well, i'll go try kinect at my cousin's house who i know will buy anything M$

    I already waved my arms about in front of my ps2 eye-toy. It was fun for about 5 minutes, the the complete lack of tactile response ruins most games.
    There is no way in hell that I'm going to pay the price of a second console just to wave my arms around for 5 minutes then get bored.

    Just as defunct? Rare died off because it died off, not because Microsoft was the cancerous scourge of video gaming. If Nintendo saw massive potential for them they would've, you know, kept them. It's not like they made anything good after the N64, unless you want to count that Conker remake.

    Rare has nothing to do with DK64 not being on VC, Ninty owns Donkey Kong not Rare, hence why the Rare made Donkey Kong Country games are available. I think its due to the fact that N64 games are hard to emulate on the Wii
