$10 Metroid Prime Trilogy, anybody buying who own the separate GCN and Wii games? Differences?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - $10 Metroid Prime Trilogy, anybody buying who own the separate GCN and Wii games? Differences?

Are you going to buy Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii U this week?

yes 139 68.81%
 
no 32 15.84%
 
maybe if.. 13 6.44%
 
see results 18 8.91%
 
Total:202
 
So the Metroid Prime Trilogy is only $10 on the Wii U eshop for a limited time (I think the rest of this week).  
Anybody own Metroid Prime 1&2 on the Gamecube and Metroid Prime 3 on the Wii that is also going to buy the Trilogy on Wii U? 
 

From what I gather the differences are:
+ added motion contols for 1&2
+ 16:9 support
 + they fixed some bugs and glitches
+ some slight tweeks in bosses
+ you can unlock fusion suit
- the original menus are replaced by a central one
- no normal control option
 
 
For me the motion controls were good in Prime 3 but they sometimes screwed up with bosses when I had to jump around a lot.  I think it was partly due to my TV being higher than my sitting position and sensor bar position.  I think I'll still buy the Trilogy just to see how it looks on my HDTV as opposed to my old CRT TV.
 
 
Below is a video showing the load time differences between Wii disc and eShop version of the Trilogy:

 
What are your reasons for buying or not buying Metroid Prime Trilogy for $10 on the Wii U?

yup I own all three games and bought this the day it was available on the e-shop. I haven't played it yet though as I haven't had the time



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


I sold my physical copy of Trilogy for it.



Well, this is new.

Read.

I have the physical copy and I am fine with that...amazing games though, and the motion controls are fantastic



Yeah I have the GCN versions but I bought the trilogy cuz I wanted to play the first 2 with Wii controls.



Around the Network

I have a physical copy of the game so I may not buy the eShop version.



The Fusion Suit is still unlockable? I don't really remember because it isn't something I cared about. Original Metroid definitely isn't unlockable in the Trilogy anymore.

Some other changes:

+Graphics for Metroid Prime have minor additional effects
+Loading times have been notably improved for Metroid Prime 1 and 2
+An easy difficulty setting has been added to Metroid Prime 1 and 2
+Scanned log entries carry over to a new game on the same save file for all games
-Unlocking all bonus material of Metroid Prime 3 still requires the exchange of friend credits



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I own both the second and third game but 3 games for only 10 dollars? How can I pass that deal down.



I own 3 and didnt like it. I still got the trilogy last week for 10 bucks een though I might never play them. Same with SMG2, as setting up the wii stuff on the U sounds tiresome. Still, 10 bucks was well worth the satisfaction of owning those games, even though I might never play them.

Yes, that is kind of f%&$ed up, sorry.

Are these additional changes to the already modified Prime 1&2 present on the Trilogy disc?

@OT I answered 'no' in the poll, as I already own the GC games and the trilogy disc. But after watching the difference in load times, I am tempted to double dip. It's only AUD13 atm and it would also keep my Trilogy disc and box safe. I currently have a lot of housemates and having collectibles lying around (even if they're away and out of general sight) can be dangerous.
