Well, I figured such a bold headline would be a good enough post for my 666th post ;>

Perfect Dark heads to Xbox
21st Aug 2002

What?s going on at Rare?

We have caught hold of one of the more interesting rumours to hit the Internet gaming sewing circle for some time now. Namely, that Perfect Dark Zero will be created for Microsoft?s Xbox console.

Although Rare refuses to comment on anything, Nintendo?s recent response to our question in relation to the future of Perfect Dark would seem to lend weight to these rumours. We proposed to Nintendo that Perfect Dark Zero for GameCube didn?t exist in any real form. The response we got from the Japanese head office was simply, ?We have no information to share relating to that game?. A comment that certainly raised a few eyebrows around the gaming world.

It is also worth bearing in mind that Perfect Dark is one of the few games Rare is the sole licence holder for. Nintendo, a 49% shareholder in the company, has overseen the development of some of its key products at Rare, including Donkey Kong, one of the biggest names in the world of videogames.

It is now seeming increasingly likely that, following the shambles over Rare?s possible multi-platform future, embroiled with the rumoured Activision buy-out, that Perfect Dark may spearhead any possible Xbox move for the UK based developer.

Perhaps Microsoft will unveil PDZ at X02 or ECTS? We?ll keep you updated as this progresses and remember where you heard about it first.



Really a bit misleading though, as it implies confirmation... which isn't there. *Sigh* Just another one for the rumor mill...

The odd thing is the 49% stake Nintendo owns in Rare.. that's quite a bit- I hadn't realized it was that much...

Dear board members... your th0ugh7s?

Just rumors. Perfect Dark is on GameCube. Miyamoto had a tape clip, but he didn't want to showed it.

Just like Miyamoto had a tape clip of FF7 on N64 before Sqare announced it was going with Sony?

Until there is an official confirmation, all we can do is speculate, the rest is just marketing and rumormongering. BEst to wait and see.

First off, that clip had characters from FF6. Second, it was just a technical demo to show off the N64; nobody ever said anything about it even being a game. Last, Square was working on FF7 for PSX way before they showed that demo. Point being: there was never such thing as FF7 for N64.

rumor

of which i'm tired of hearing/reading about

let Rare themselves speak about this, and i'd assume they won't at least until SFA is released
