Knight Lore -- coming to an Xbox 360 near you soon?

VideoGamer.com reveals in an interview with Rare director George Andreas that the UK-based video game developer has plans to use Project Natal for the Xbox 360 to revitalise some of their classic franchises. Rare is known for developing a number of popular series such as Banjo Kazooie, GoldenEye 007, Viva Pinata, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, and Battletoads, to name a few.

The precursor to Rare, Ultimate Play The Game, had its own wave of hits too, most of which appeared on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. These included Knight Lore, Lunar Jetman and Sabre Wulf. Could Rare be talking about these earlier 8-Bit titles perhaps?

"[Natal] gives us an opportunity to maybe at some point in the future investigate some of those older IPs. I won't name names... One in particular actually I think we can do an absolutely phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal version on with Natal. The interface, the way you interact with it -- I think it would be an absolutely world-beating product. But we need to explore a little bit more in that direction" said Andreas.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
