And how about a new Killer Instinct game for the 360? Because that'd be fantastic :)

Yep a new Killer Instinct would be great. New characters, even more insane combos and over the top special effects. If only they'd do it already :shock:

I doubt that the previous Banjo-Kazooie games would have worked all that well on the PC, it's useless for adventure games :( . Although I'll go to hell and back to play it, so long as it does'nt involve buying a 360 :) .

Anyway, platormers don't really work well on PC, well alot of games don't work well yet they still get ported over.
Im sure it'll eventually get ported over though as its a chance for increased sales from fanboys that won't ever give 360 a chance and PC owners can always just plug in a 360 controller and use that.

I don't have anything against the 360, it has some incredible software. I just does'nt really have what I would usually buy and I am poor :(. So PC with a pad is my alternative.

Am I the only person for whom the release of Rare games on the PC marks the end of an era, when a Rare game was console specific. If Rare had put their goods on the PS1 and the Dreamcast would the N64 have been quite as special? No. Yes of course Microsft will make money on Xbox 360 or Games for Windows no matter what but it still makes the purchase of an Xbox360 less necessary than it was.

I'd buy a PC version of Banjo. They could bundle it with the 360 pad for Windows.

For me, when the staff at Rare broke up and they were shipped off to Microsoft was the end of an era, when a British company and a Japanese one stopped working hand in hand :( . Now I just don't want to be left out of the sequels to games they made on the N64.

What the hell is Viva Pinata anyway? What's involved in the gameplay - it says there's 'something for everyone' - I'm an FPS player above all else, what's in it for me? Nothing I'd wager. But I do play animal crossing on the DS occasionally...

I went to the Viva Pinata game website and found out absolutely nothing about what's involved in playing this game.
