    Looks good but could've been better - especially the front.

    Sexy beast, but I still think nintendo should look into porting metroid prime trilogy on the 3ds then this would make it full circle

    That would be a problem. Not enough storage and a huge downgrade in graphics.

    Ports for the 3DS would take a ton of time and look significantly worse than the originals, though. Prime Trilogy HD for Switch is what we need.

    Fitting all three games on a 4 GB chip would be tough without severely limiting certain things.

    I doubt it. They're probably more on the up seeing that he'll get paid for his work now.

    Why would they be fuming? I doubt they even care.

    Also, in case you weren't paying attention, Nintendo justified their actions by releasing their own port. Although AM2R sounded like it would be better than what Nintendo is producing, it is a justification nonetheless (unlike Pokemon Prism that we know of right now).

    Also C&D =/= DMCA

    I seriously doubt that continuing to make games/hardware from a successful Nintendo franchise is meant to be a jab at anyone in particular.

    I'm not paying $120 for a game that costs $50 on the Wii which has better graphics.

    3 cards for $40 though. Not 3 separate purchases.. Of course that's something I see Ninty doing.

    Oh alright. Yeah I'd get 3 cards for $40 and then dump them all/install them all.

    But what would that mean for digital? 3 separate downloads?
