Keeping my "prediction" posted, I said 4 weeks ago, I think that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex will pass The Conduit's "Total Hours" reported played, on Monday, March 15, 2010.
Monday's update could be surprising, and perhaps Call of Duty will pass The Conduit tomorrow, but I'm still saying it will pass The Conduit on Monday, March 15.
Also, I was glad to see Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition on Amazon.com being available from 3rd party vendors for right around $50. Some of them have the game marked up, the "Featured Merchant" has Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector Edition's price as $93.99 + $4.99 shipping, but at the time of this posting, there were four merchants with the game between $49.55 and $49.99 + $3.99 shipping.
If you haven't picked up Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition, don't forget that Nintendo confirmed they have canceled shipping/producing the game, at least for the time being.
I'm still not sure why Nintendo isn't keeping Metroid Prime Trilogy in production, or at least Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, as a "Player's Choice" type of title for new Wii owners to pick up. It looks as of though Metroid: Other M will be the only Wii Metroid game, that Wii owners will be able to buy brand new as of June 27, 2010.
Do you think Nintendo isn't shipping/producing Metroid Prime Trilogy anymore because of how soon Metroid: Other M is going to be released, and they don't want newer Wii owners confused if they see two Metroid titles sitting on a shelf?
If you're interested in any of the games discussed, you can see some of Amazon.com's new and used prices below. You can even currently pre-order Metroid: Other M.
It's a real shame about The Conduit. I want to see it succeed, but High Voltage apparently doesn't.ReplyDelete
If Activision can provide patches, and hotfixes to MW:Reflex that fixes the hacks, and cheats, there is no excuse for HVS. If The Conduit's online wasn't butchered, and neglected, i'd say it would give COD a fair run for it's money. Instead, it's ignored, and people are running from it.
I'm not sure why The Conduit couldn't be or wasn't patched. I guess it had to do with the programming side of things, not really sure.
I hope HVS was able to learn from their experience with The Conduit.
My main issue, with The Conduit and HVS/Sega, is how communicative HVS was before The Conduit released. After the game released, I guess due to Sega having the publishing rights, HVS said little to nothing about what was going on with The Conduit's online.
Thanks for the comment!
It looks like Nintendo is doing what you may be suggesting, let's the other metroid games die off before Other M comes out. But I'm wondering if other consoles do this?ReplyDelete
I'm of the opinion that they want the Trilogy to become a true collector's item, and from the looks of the price, its already there. I can't support that statement with any logic as to WHY they'd want it to be a valuable collector's item, there certainly can't be any financial gain to that.ReplyDelete
I don't think they're worried about cannibalization of sales. Super Mario Galaxy is still in print while Old School Super Mario Bros. Wii is out there selling gangbusters (sad face, yeah NSMBW is a good game, but Galaxy should be played by everyone IMHO).
