Metroid Prime Trilogy coming to Wii

Friday, May 22nd, 2009 by Zach Potts

It was announced today that the entire Metroid Prime series will be available on one disc for the Nintendo Wii on August 24th for a low, low price of $49.99.

The disc will include both Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime: Echoes from the GameCube, as well as Corruption from the Wii, all featuring Corruption’s control scheme, utilizing the Wii’s controls.

Each game will be available to play at anytime from a hub, and there are even added “achievements” in each game which will allow you to unlock artwork, songs, and other goodies. The GameCube games will also feature enhanced graphics.

This announcement isn’t anything too mind blowing, but it’ll be really cool to have all the games on one disc, and be able to play them with the superior Wii controls.

I’ve talked about it and talked about and talked about. Well, now it’s done… mostly. You’ll see new things added to the site over the next couple of days. All in all, welcome to the new and improved much more robust Gamers Platform. One word of warning to all you Platformers out there: Sadly, you will have to re-register for the site as transferring the user accounts would have taken about 112 hours off database coding. I love you guys, but not that much.

Activision has announced today that Guitar Hero: World Tour for the Playstation 2 has finally shipped to retail stores making it available for purchase as early as tomorrow! For those people who are stuck in the Playstation 2 system and been waiting for this game, now is the time to go to your local retailers and purchase it!

“The Guitar Hero World Tour band game is clearly a must have item this holiday season with launch quantities for the next-generation console bundles virtually sold out across the retail channel after only the first week,” said Mike Griffith, President and CEO, Activision Publishing. “As expected, our initial launch quantities were limited due to early supply constraints and launching the PlayStation 2 sku a week later than last year, but we will be steadily replenishing the supply throughout the quarter.”
