People who are blaming Japan for this game's underwhelming sales.
a) Europe not only picked up the slack, but added .1 to it.
b) What happened to the extra 1 million people in North America who bought Prime 1?

Good sales! Anyone still see it for sale anywhere? Again if this game and the zelda game along with some others reduced in price then they could fly higher! Then maybe more people would be interested in buying games like other M. Too bad that doesnt work for games like a boy and his blob and cursed mountain.

If nintendo would just put out the best seller thing again like they had with the 64 maybe more people would buy these games. Wii music as well. not that I are about that game. Anyways, they will make a little more money off the games (zelda twighlight) and more people would experience them and be willing to buy the next game that nintendo puts out. I think that these hard core games like metroid and zelda make casuals nervous because they think it will be too hard, so they don't spend the 50 bucks on it. 20 dollars is less heart ache and may get some bites.

This probably cost a lot less than the $5M it cost Sega to release The Conduit also. Seeing that MP3 is only a boosted version of the MP and MP2 engine!!! Meaning it made the Big N Mucho Cash!!!

I agree with the assesment that this game is better than the Conduit, except for one thing. The Conduit's instant turn around function is amazing, its the one thing I would add to MP3. Other than that, this was one of my favorite games ever.

darkgemini posted 28/08/2009, 05:07
Of course, and many people I know buy it, too :)

Finally, it reached 1,54 units sold. Moep, fusion sold 1,55 :D But I think, mp3 wouldn't sell more units, people would buy the trilogy instead... But I think, 1,54 is very good, better than super metroid or mp2, without marketing and so on, very impressive :)

Advance lets you aim more in the center while turning ... standard is not good for quick reactions and turning.

Yes Metroid deserves better but for whatever reason Metroid was never a huge seller.

1.5 million so far. Not bad.
It will get close to 2 million in the end from bumps of a price drop and maybe more interest thanks to the rerelease of Prime 1 and 2 with Wii controls.

@ Omega Phazon Pirate

Games as high calibre and quality as Super Metroid and Metroid Prime pretty much solidified Metroid's place in Nintendo top 3. All the titles in the series are quality. I don't know about Kirby. I think you might be alone in that. Samus is one of Nintendo's best known characters along with Mario and Link. Pokemon might sell more compared to Metroid, but it's squandered its quality by making too many crappy Pokemon off shoots.

@ Dohz, saying Metroid is one of Nintendo's "big three" is definitely up for debate. Most people accept that Mario and Zelda are two of the big three. Lots of people say Pokemon is the third one, while I would say it's Kirby :D.

Dohz posted 11/01/2009, 10:29
This game might get a boost when they release the Wiivamped Metroid Prime 1/2. It's unfortunate not more people bought this awesome game. Metroid, despite one of Nintendo's big three, is still a niche franchise and only has 10 entries in the series compared to the numerous Mario and Zelda titles. It's hard for new people to get into. The Prime series, despite it's superficial semblance to a FPS, it's heavy on the adventuring. People buying it for a pure FPS will be disappointed. People buying it for pure adventuring won't like the first person shooter aspects. Metroid is definitely an anomoly. I just hope Nintendo continues the Metroid series.

Well, and sales aren't as bad. Metroid sold over 2,7 Mio (20 years ago), Metroid Prime = 2, 73, but it was bundled (!!!) Than we have Metroid II (1,73), Metroid Fusion (1,6) and Metroid Prime 3 (1,48). Metroid Prime 3 surpassed already the other metroid games.

But you are right, it deserves much better sales :( MUCH better!!!!!

I think the sales for this game is wrong somehow as its constantly in the sales charts.
Its an game with legs that we will not get correct numbers for until nintendo reveals them.
Its an must buy for any wii owner with some of the best visuals on the hardware.
But its not an plain fps shooter more an adventure puzzle shooter.
With some really hard boos fights.

This is a Metroid game with some stronger shooter elements but at it's core it's a Metroid game just like Super Metroid on the SNES.

Anyway a really great game and a fantastic finish to a great series.

The biggest problem with the game is the outdated combat.
I don't want to spend over a minute blasting each enemy while with my immense health bar never seems to run out.
Battles should be faster by reducing you're and the enemy
health.
By the way Wii fit is not crap.
It sold over 13mill because
1: good marketing
2: helps you loss weight
3: balance board can be used for other games
