Rare Games on The Nintendo Virtual Console sign now

After hearing that the Nintendo Wii console will be "Rareless", Many of Americas gamers, if not the worlds, felt their hearts sink. Since Rare's creation, it has been a staple of creativity and innovation and in the opinion of many they shined brightest during the N64 era. Banjo-Kazooie, Goldeneye and Jet Force Gemini are just some of the wonderful and imaginative games that we all grew up with.

Now Nintendo has deviced a way to let us all relive our childhoods by letting us play our old Nintendo favorites on the Wii and to not have the Rare Library among those games is like reading your favorite book and finding chapters have been ripped out. This by all accounts is a travesty. Now we of the undersigned are not oblivious to the business world. Microsoft saw an oppurtunity to add a great company into its fold and did so and there's nothing wrong with that. However this current mode of whats ours is ours feels as if everyone has simply taken their ball and gone home. Leaving us with nothing to play. We know of course this was not anyones intent and no one in no way meant to be malicious but when did comprimise work so that no one is happy? When did doing business cause one to lose money?

It can't be argued that Nintendo's Wii market base is growing by the day, making any game put on the Virtual Console that much more profitable. Its been recently announced that they've already had 4.7 million downloads from their only 100 game catalog. Just think how that number would jump if an N64 staple like Goldeneye was added to the fray.

Now I realize pleading to a giant like Microsoft with the lure of profit is almost foolhardy as obviously they have done well to say the least. So then I say to you Microsoft and Rare, don't do it for the money, do it for us. So often we are bombarded with news stories of exclusivity and back and forth bantering between companies that it does nothing but leave us all with doubt and bitterness. We yearn, in your action, to be reminded of a time when it was more about fun and enjoyment. Now Nintendo isnt without their part in all this. Nintendo, dont hold Microsofts feet to the flame because they may knock first or act as if they need you. Be mindful of the end goal and act accordingly.

Most importantly to all, do it for yourselves. You the leaders of your industry. Do it knowing you'll be an example to every game and technology company that there is always a better way and common ground can always be found. Now there may be long hours of negotiating but know that you are doing it to bring pure and wide eyed joy to millions. Like the look on your childs face when they open their present on Christmas morning and it is exactly what they wanted. Do it because its the right thing to do. Help us remember and to smile, and we know that if you are true to yourselves then this will be possible because you like us, are gamers. :)

With Respect,
