CGR's On This Day in Gaming - Rare Buyout, September 20

"Classic Game Room presents CGR's ON THIS DAY IN GAMING! On September 20, 2002, Rare's shares were completely acquired by Microsoft for a whopping $375 million. Renowned as one of the most critically and commercially successful third-party (and later second-party) developers ever, the Rare renaissance of the late '90s saw the company's tireless work ethic produce some of the greatest and most revolutionary titles ever, including Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, and of course their most lasting legacy, Goldeneye 007."
