Microsoft buys Rare?

I just noticed this update on PlanetPS2:


Has Microsoft Bought Rare?
05:03 | Musashi |
Rumors of Nintendo-allied developer Rare's involvment in several PS2-based projects may have come to a grinding halt, if rumors of their purchase by Microsoft prove true. is reporting that the second-party developer was purchased by Microsoft in a deal estimated between 250 million and 350 million. is claiming that Rare employees were informed of the deal last night, after a deal with Activision fell through. If this is true, it would almost certainly ensure that any future releases from the popular developer, including the long awaited followup to Perfect Dark, would be exclusive to the Xbox.

This should've gone in the other Microsoft Buys Rare thread. Next time - try a search.
