    just you wait, watch the prices on ebay soar right up now, i couldn't care less if they discontinued because i have all the original gamecube versions, the Wii version have been edited anyway.

    Well that's sucky for americans I guess... the collectors edition isn't available in europe, so that's not discontinued, right? I want it at least... :/

    Oh seems like the normal version IS the collectors edition [​IMG] even though it's no tin packaging

    I got mine on last Thursday. So I assume it's not yet discontinued here in Europe.

    There are a few places that sell it for over £40 used over here before this news hit.

    Damn it. No wonder, I couldn't find any copies online.

    Meh. I'll search in the stores near me. Hopefully, I'll find a copy.

    This collection sucks. Graphics had to be dumbed down just to fit all 3 games on one DVDr. Do a google search and you'll find some interesting comparisson videos.

    It's not one regular DVD. It's a dual layer DVD, so it has A LOT more data. If you're really going to bitch about a slight change in graphics (which even then you won't notice unless you're a whiny little nitpicker), then you seriously have more problems than this collection.

    I never liked Metroid Prime but the collection itself is a great deal. It's a shame you can't snag it.

    I'm sure it'll be in stock here in NZ for a little while longer so I can get my hands on it.

    Yeah, if they want to stop people pirating their games, discontinuing what might be considered a major game may not have been the best move...

    It is sad that such a brilliant title is being dis-continued so quickly. I thought it was selling really well and it is not like a dual-layer disks cost significantly more.
