Rare Co-founder Doesn’t Know why Nintendo Didnt Purchase the Company

Rare

At one point, Nintendo held a 49% stake in Rare, but in 2002, the whole company was purchased by Microsoft.  Rare co-founder Chris Stamper, has said he has no clue why Nintendo didn’t purchase the company.

I’ve no idea why they didn’t do that,” he recently said to Develop. “I thought we were a good fit.”

Stamper felt that the company needed the aid to keep up with the rising costs of development.  

“The price of software development was going up and up with the platforms, and Rare works really well with a partner. We were looking for someone to help broaden our horizons.”

Nintendo could have really used Rare with Wii U. What do you guys think? I think if Nintendo purchased Rare, a lot of the talent wouldn’t have left.
