I expect they probably will. They need to do something to get the X-Box in people's living rooms.

Yeah...crappy *coughs*
The biggest problem with X-Box -> very few titles.

That's called good business sense. They're not a charity, they're a corporation.

OH NO!!!
Microsoft bought out Rare???
Why God WHY????

This is horrible news!
Nintendo and Rare were hand in hand, they made soem awesome games together.....I'm guessing that won't be happening anymore....oh what a world.

im pretty happy with my gamecube and personally i think Xbox will eventually just die. (kinda like dreamcast only it will take longer) most people are getting ps2 anyways.

It takes a lot more than "a brand-name" to kill the enormous lead that PS2 has. Not to mention the fact that with PS2 its pretty much a big name game every month or so. The only way I would switch consoles is if one of the others had better support of the RPG genre, as those are my favorite games. And since most all of the big (and small) RPGs on PSX or PS2 (not going back any farther for this discussion), I will probably never change.

It won't just die, simple as the logic: Bill gates has the money to fund it for years even if its losing profit, and he has the money to buy solutions.
