Well, RARE were talking about going Multiplatform as their contract with Nintendo was ending.
A move I think would be better than M$ buying the company.
And what makes you think that the PC would ever get a port ?
Look at the Halo issue, I believe we are only getting a port because of the fuss we all made, and M$ don't want to look too selfish. And then, it's still 2 years AFTER of the Xbox version.
Also ,Does it matter when Starfox was coming out ?
If M$ *do* get this deal then they can do what they want with Starfox as it's RARE's code, not Nintendo's.
They could even change it slightly to avoid any Nintendo copyrights.
Either way, it's only going to be Xbox owners who will like his news
