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 need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
