    Source = Wikipedia, IGN
    On March 26, 2006, Matt Casamassina, Editor-in-Chief of IGN Wii, had announced in his blog that Nintendo's Virtual Console service, a feature which allows players to download games from the history of Nintendo, will be "Rareless". He stated that he had "met with some Rare/Microsoft staff" while attending the 2006 Game Developers Conference, who reportedly confirmed that the Virtual Console will not see any Rare-owned licenses. The Donkey Kong games that were developed by Rare, remain unaffected since Nintendo retains the rights to the Donkey Kong series (which was Nintendo's creation to begin with).

    No rare games that means no Banjo-Kazooie games but Donkey Kong games

    Screw you Microsoft :(

    Danny, don't be a fanboy.
    And Matt from IGN is an idiot - I never trust him.
