The lights are on
Today's Xbox One presentation was light on games, but it sounds like Microsoft has surprises up its sleeves for E3. Speaking with Polygon, Microsoft's Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer confirmed that one of Rare's established franchises will be making an appearance at E3 this year for Xbox One.
Spencer said, "Fans of Rare and Rare IP I think will be pleased with what we're going to show at E3," and followed up saying, "That historic IP that they've built I think can play a real important role on Xbox One."
Rare owns a number of IPs and franchises including Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark, Viva Pinata, Kameo, and it recently renewed the trademark for Killer Instinct.

It better be another Bad Fur Day!
Please be more Conker!
A new Conker game would be sick
This excites me FAR more than anything I've heard about the Xbox One yet.
As much as I love Nintendo I hate them for letting Rare get away. Microsoft buys them does nothing with the company for a freakin lifetime and now this. I swear the only good time to be a gamer was back in the day, now....I don't even know my own name
Probably Killer Instinct and Banjo. That said I would like a proper re-imagining of Perfect Dark. PDZ was horrible compared to what we expected.
Perfect Dark 2 with some Deus Ex: Human Revolution influence. *fingers crossed*
Whatever guys. Ignore my comment. I'm 100% positive it isn't Conker. Don't believe me if you choose but I'm trying to save you from disappointment. At least there's a good chance its a Banjo Kazooie sequel. Possibly a classic sequel. Fingers crossed.
What I meant by ignoring my comment was that you all that are hoping for Conker obviously didn't read my comment about Chris Seavor. Look him up for yourself if you don't believe me. Trust me, I love Conker but it's good to know the facts.
I hope they reach way back and release a 2.5D Wizards & Warriors game.
This is a shame, I am not excited for the new Xbox One. I do not like the stipulations it is putting on the system but if it comes out with Banjo Threeie, I may break down and by the system! Darn you Rare and your excellent IP's. Only if it is not a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts
For the love of all things flipping holy, PLEASE be ether Conker 2 or Banjo-Threeie. And please don't do what you did with nuts n' bolts, make it the original series.
