Best games ever, you cant go wrong with these games. Even today are gorgeous, the art is incredible, the soundtrack is best ever....just amazing package.
I own 2 copies of this for anyone interested in by the way...

@RobDX Indeed. If they had printed more copies of it, it would have sold well over a million for sure. For my money, I'd almost say it was a better package deal than Orange Box was.

The first one is a classic, redefines the franchise and the genre, and has the best atmosphere out of the 3
The second one is more challenging, more complex, better in many ways
The 3rd one is the culmination, better grafix, more complex story, same level of challenge...but not as appealing
Overall this is a must have for every gamer out there...you should buy a Wii just for these 3 games

I really wanted this, but I saw Metroid Prime used at Gamestop for $3.99, as opposed to this game for $70+. I'm mostly just interested in the first game for now, so I'll get the other two later down the road for a much cheaper price if I'm interested.

I only like the first one... The second one starts cool and then declines until I stopped playing which was right in front of the final boss. The third I only passed the meteor part and stopped due to boredom. Metriod is not for me :/

Well I dont think they made exactly 500,000 copies. I think they just had it available for a limited time. Lets hope they made at least 600,000 copies! Still it just adds more money to nintendo. These games already came out they just ported the games to their own system to make even more money..lol.Kinda like hmmm what other game is coming out in about a week? oh yeah Mario all-stars.

@Cheebee - why not? What you are saying actually totally supports the premise that all remaining copies are in Others (where it sold pitifully, hence there are lots of copies left since Nintendo probably expected more sold) while there are indeed hardly any copies left in the US.

yes indeed!

HMV are the worst - they didnt bother stocking it anywhere at all even on release week! what a very strange decision that was!

I must admit though, i cheated and ebayed a metal tin for this for about a tenner p&p included, so i am well chuffed with my beautiful tin with PAL contents :)

i would defo have bought a tin for 50 instead of the normal which i got for 40, so its money well spent!

I feel your pain. I too live in the UK and as such, also lack a tin. I haven't seen this at any GAME or Gamestation stores for a while so you may be right about the online only existence.

It's still a great compilation though so lets not lose hope and believe in our UK brothers and sisters to pick up this great title before its too late :)

Could it be Metroid Other M is more imminent than we think? Not that it sold the same numbers at this stage, but I read somewhere they stopped production of Endless Ocean this month, just before Endless Ocean 2 comes out. Maybe they wanted to make people familiar with Metroid, but not have it eat Metroid Other M's sales (?) Just a theory, admittedly possibly a stupid one.

Remember that just liek most wii games (ports, crappy licences, remakes, and new play controls) this has already made all the money it needs to make and sold well over a million copies or more. This is all just extra, people have the gamecube and original wii versions already. When Madden 2010 came out for Wii it was dumbed down and cost less too make than the other systems. The other systems mad EA an easy profit and the Wii was just an extra topping on the cake. Its not like they have a totally different engine and spend months develping for the wii! Wii games cost less unless its a zelda or mario game, so when you see 100,000 copies to 900,000 copies you got to remember that is pretty good for a wii game on some titles. The company might have been hoping for 55 million like one title we know of, but doesn't mean they need it.

Voltair, I'd agree with Halo being Mainstream (obviously being the only HD title to cross 10m) but GOW? That series is about as Mainstream and Metroid is.

Voltaire posted 22/12/2009, 02:40
Metroid isnt a popular franchise. The gameplay isnt mainstream, easy, or some would say, fun.

Most Metroid games sell to a specific audience, and the series as a while will never have the mainstream appeal of something like Halo or God of War. Its niche, and the fact that its selling as much as it is is a testimate to the quality of the games.

@ Voltaire

I know! That sucks so hard. :(
Apparently, in the GC PAL Prime, they didn't disappear, but Trilogy seems to be a modified NTSC version, so in my precious PAL game they DO disappear, darnit!
So now I got 100% items and 99% scans. That makes me a sad panda. :(

Also, after finishing the game and you choose to save, it'll save a new game over your previous file, so you'll have to start again from the very beginning, like in Prime 3. Man.
You can choose not to save at that point, but then when you boot up your file you're still missing scans because you haven't beaten Metroid Prime yet.

Meh, so now I guess I actually WILL have to play though the entire game again just for those goddarn bats. I'm that kind of person. :p

I know there's a lot of content, but this is priced too high. At $20 they'd have sold a lot more. I would have bought it at $20. In fact, I'll buy it when it hits $20. I still need to play all of these games. I played the first one back in the day for about 4 hours but had a tough time with the controls. I think I'd like it more now though. I was still pretty new to analog controls at the time I originally played it, so it was probably just my lack of skill.

Yes true, but we should also take into consideration that "other" is a broad catagory. Even though the game my be officially released in said "x" region, stores may be waiting for stock to arrive. I live in an urban Canadian area, and even we often have to wait 2-3 days after "official" release until retailers have the game on the shelf.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say next week sales in "other" will be higher then 10,136.
