Metroid Prime Wii Collection Hits This August

Affordably priced trilogy package on its way to the Wii.

Samus is all, like, "NNOOOOOOWWWWW how much would you pay!!??!?!"
Well here's a pretty good deal. Nintendo has announced that it'll be releasing Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Wii on August 24. The package will feature the "New Play Control" style of operation in Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2. Naturally, it will also include Metroid Prime 3, which was originally released on the Wii. So that one will have Current Play Control.

The games will be collected on one disc, and a new setup for unlockables will open up stuff as objectives across the three games are completed. The compilation will retail for $49.99.

Is this the best deal in gaming since the Orange Box? I cant think of anything since

Wow, that's exactly what I thought, glad to see I wasn't the only one.

I'm not too surprised by them being able to fit the games all on one disc, the technology isn't that far-fetched anymore.

I'll be getting this. I never made it through the first Prime due to the annoying control scheme, and haven't tried any others.

I only own the first game; I have played the second and like it.

I'll probably get this.

50 bucks seems decent for 3 games but the ability to play with motion controls on the original two doesn't appeal to me owning all three games already.  For new comers definate bargain, but other than that not worth it.

Dood, that is a crazy sexy deal!!!  I'm psyched about this.

Between this and the Fallout 3 GOTY Edition, I'd say gamers are going to have an AWESOME fall for going back and playing some great games that they might've missed the first time around.  = D

why can't they do Killer 7?  Of all the Gamecube games other than RE4, it would be perfect for this sort of treatment

Somebody was asking about GC game sizes....they are all roughly 1.3 gigs.

I can play the "new" control style?!  WOW!  You mean:  the "new" control style that I was playing last year?!

How about Prime 3 with old style controls?
Why in the world would we want that?

A dual layered DVD is around 9 GB.

Both MP1 and MP2 were 1.5 GB each

MP3 was a single layer disc, which was 4.7 GB

Add them up.

Don't panic. I haven't played a single one either.

I'm trying so hard  not to! I barely remember where I have stored my Wii.

cool, but I'm only missing Corruption so I won't be getting this

Nice. I have now been convinced to buy a Wii (after selling mine on eBay (for a profit, mind you) many months ago).
