Microsoft stands firm on "no DS development" line

Microsoft has restated that none of its studios are involved in developing games for the Nintendo DS, after members of Rare's Game Boy Advance development team rekindled speculation that they were considering projects for the handheld.

In a Q&A session with Rare fans, published on the developer's official website sometime in July and unearthed just recently, an unnamed designer on the GBA team responded to a question about the possibility of N64 ports - like first-person shooter Perfect Dark - appearing on the Nintendo DS. "Sounds cool, but we're not doing any DS games, are we?" he noted, before adding, "Or are we? Or... are we?" [His emphasis.] However, Microsoft has swiftly confirmed that the statement it made at the end of May concerning DS development still stands.
