In a recent interview with Industry Gamers, Rare's new studio leader Scott Henson (who is a 16 year Microsoft veteran) said that Rare has not "fallen off of the map".  Henson goes on to talk about Kinect Sports , which sold over 3 million copies,  saying,

“fallen off the map is interesting when you sell over three million units, I like that falling off the map. It’s great success in this industry.”  

Mr. Henson is optimistic about the future of Rare and Kinect Sports. He concludes by  saying

"We delivered as much to the platform as any other studio. With the success of Kinect Sports and what I believe will be a successful Season Two, I think Rare lived up to its potential... The title itself is about connecting people to video games. It’s a new Rare. It’s an exciting place to push boundaries for what’s possible.”

So with the days of Donkey Kong and Killer Instinct  in the rear view mirror, what is your opinion on Rare? Is Kinect Sports really enough to carry Rare to the future, or is Rare gasping for their last breath of air? Let us know what you think in the comments.
