    Metroid Prime Trigoly just rerelease yesterday on US/EUR, and it's on sale to a ridiculous low price, $10

    It's On Sale for one week 1/29 - 2/5, it will be at $20 after that

    You can't miss this masterpiece, I mean 3 masterpieces!

    It's the same MPT for Wii, Wiimote-nunchuk as only input method, comes with original e-manual (accessible before boot the game)

    It's a great price but I'm still going to skip because if I were to own it it'd have to be the physical release, I'll be patient and look out for a decent price.

    Physical release prices collapsed, it's the best time to get in disc form.

    Yep.

    The UK edition has dropped from £100-70 to the standard retail price £40 so it's actually pretty affordable now.

    Anyone who played know how the game looks, if it's any different from the retail game?

    All Wii VC games are straight ports from their Wii counterparts, so no visual improvements whatsoever BUT games such as Punch Out (which support Wii Classic Controller) are now playable with the Wii U GamePad (they figured out how to make a cIOS).

    I got MPT awhile back before it got discontinued (stopped producing the disk) that Christmas. Glad to hear it collapsed.

    Should have imagined that.
    I have a lot of problems with Nintendo, they still live in the 90s:
    • Region Lock
    • Limited Demo Usage
    • No Account System
    • Uderpowerer Hardware
    • Terrible OS and general software
    • Huge confusion on their peripherals(Why can't I play a Wii title with WiiU Pro Controller? Because they're lazy enough to implement it)
    • Terrible Filters on VC titles
    • Lack of the most basic stuff in VC titles (like button re-map)
    There are many terrible things they do, and they do because the want that way and fuck what the consumer wants,
    when they start changing that I'll think about buying a WiiU, so far I'll be happy playing on my PS4

    As far as visuals or audio go, I doubt there's much of/any difference, but I plan on recording the footage of the disc on the wii over component, disc on Vwii, and digital on Wii U just for the heck of it. So glad metroid is getting a bit of love.

    I was waiting for it and grabbed it as soon as I got home.
    To say truth I already had it trough other means on vWii, but I want to support the Metroid franchise to encourage Nintendo to make the next game on Wii U. that and I had $20 nintendollars sitting there.

    I own the disc version as well, but bought this anyway. Anything to convince Nintendo that Metroid still sells, and the Prime games are so good.

    You're spot on here! Nintendo is very slow to adapt, they don't even support generic USB controllers, forcing manufacturers to make 3rd party controllers connecting to the Wiimote. It's why arcade games, especially shmups and fighters, will never be good on Nintendo platforms, which is a shame considering many of them got their start on the NES and SNES...
    I have both and while I like Wii U games more (for now, just wait for the PS4 exclusives), I generally enjoy using the PS4 more because it doesn't feel archaic.

    Away from this shithole
    Let's hope Nintendo will digitally release all of the classics who got ruined by nolife scalpers. Hopefully Radiant Dawn will be next, as FE fans have NO IDEA what they are missing.

    the only 2 real problem I see there is the region lock and digital content claim, the other are minor problems that aren't a big deal. don't be a drama queen.
    but still Nintendo should step it up and iron them out as are rather serious.
