Molyneux: I want Rare to have more of an identity

Rare. Secretive Rare. Nintendo Rare. Peter Molyneux, Microsoft Game Studios’ newly-appointed super-boss, wants to change all that.

“One of the things I really want to do is help Rare have more of an identity,” he told GI at E3, “and make sure the people at Rare are seen more within the industry.

“I was totally blown away from the amount of talent that there is at Rare, but it’s just that they come from a background where Nintendo required them to be this very, very secretive company.

“I just want to give them the confidence to tell the world what they’re doing.”

We’ll never forget the time we were on a Rare visit, asked to photograph a couple of execs and got the answer, “No. We’re not rock stars.” Best get used to the make-up, chaps.
