Nintendo, Rare, Nintendo, these guys just dominated the 64. Why didn't Nintendo buy these guys at their prime!?

I thought Nintendo did own some Rare stock, but then sold it to Microsoft?
Anyways, Rare is just a name, considering the talent that made them good left to from an independent company, and may well have done that anyway if Nintendo owned them fully instead of Microsoft, it may still have been a waste of money.

It feels like a lifetime has passed. I remember when it first launched and being amazed by the awesome 3d graphics. One of the best and most memorable consoles and a truly wonderful library. RIP N64 and all the memories you brought.
