Unboxing: Infendo unclothes Metroid Prime Trilogy


For $50, The Metroid Prime Trilogy arrives Aug 24  in a metal “collectors” tin, with all three Prime games (two GameCube, one Wii) pressed to a singled disc and presented in “refined 16:9 widescreen.” Here’s what you can expect to find inside the box.


  1. Definitely getting this.

  2. Blake, can we swap friendcodes in the name of science.
    I wish to verify friend voucher compatibility between my copy of Prime 3 and your copy of Prime Trilogy. I’ve got 7 sitting here to send your way. You needn’t even return the favor, I have everything unlocked in Prime 3 already.
    I’m pretty sure you guys can get my email out of this post, we can swap codes that way.


  3. I started Metroid Prime a long time ago, but dropped the game because GameCube controls just didn’t feel as good for FPS titles as Wii controls did. This is exactly what I wanted, and is definitely on my must buy list.

  4. can we get an update on the multiplayer? Everyone mentions that it’s there, but never says if it’s an fun or how the mode feels. Hook us up!

  5. looks sick. might be a release day pickup, but definetly a must buy.

  6. @srkelley – The multiplayer is there. Just new controls. Local 2-4 player deathmatch. No bots. Everyone is Samus. I have the original Prime 2, so I can vouch. Why do you think they left it out of Prime 3?

    Its not bad, its just not ground-breakingly awesome.

  7. if this is the collector’s edition. is there a regular edition? do i have to pick this one up right away? i hope not. it is a must buy and i got no money right now…:(

  8. There is no “regular edition” of the game Metroid Prime Trilogy. It’s called a collector’s edition because it includes 3 previously released games, 2 of which have been updated with widescreen and Wii controls (the first two titles, which were GameCube games). So they’re the same basic games… just better.

  9. I never played any of the Prime games before (except the awkward “hunters” game on the DS that seemed to only have ONE BOSS over and over,) but I just picked this up.

    It’s awesome.
