As many of you know, Microsoft recently acquired Nintendo's portion of Rare, so the next installments of games like Perfect Dark and Conker will come out on the 'box. However, games like Donkey Kong, which Nintendo helped a large portion with, will continue on the 'cube.

Microsoft needs some good developers for the xbox. I am rooting for them because they are the only ones that can get console gaming on the internet to work (sony doesnt have a clue and nintendo.. well gamecube will probably be the last console they make)
