To play again or not to play again. That is the question.

I want to get the digital copy, but I already have the physical copy from a long time ago.

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?


3 on Wii, but negative for 1 & 2.



Gotta figure out how to set these up lol.

Are you going to buy the Trilogy on eShop to play 1&2 (if you haven't already)?

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

A good chunk of the unlockables needed friend vouchers in Prime 3, and now there's no way to exchange them.  

I think you can still unlock them but you need to import a save file with the credits already on the file.

You can download such a save file here. - http://www.gamefaqs.com/wii/960329-metroid-prime-trilogy/saves

Yeah, I own the originals and bought the Trilogy again on Wii U.

Bought it for the improved controls and to support the Metroid Prime series in general.

Being in the land of PAL, you also get the added joy of 480p as opposed to 480i :)

Though weren't the textures slightly less crisp on the Wii ports of Prime 1 and 2?



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

I already have the disc version. So I won't be snagging the digital one. If I had known about the digital version, I would have waited.

According to the developers they shouldn't be, here's are few quotes from them on some improvements for Prime 1&2:

“We’ve gone in and surgically repaired textures with higher resolution versions.” – Mike Wikan, Senior Designer

“The biggest impact is that player’s see more of the art and intricate design that we put into the levels.” – Mike Wikan, Senior Designer

“Just a tremendous upgrade as far as the fluidity of the controls, the HUD’s a little bit different,the reticule is different as it relates to how you target your enemies now, lock-on’s a little bit different.” –Michael Kelbaugh, Executive Producer/President & CEO

“There were some parts where it was a bit slow…” – Risa Tabata, Assistant Producer

“…And where before you would have to wait for doors to open, the wait time is a lot shorter.” – Kensuke Tanabe, Producer

“We looked at a few of the bosses and made small refinements to those encounters.” – Mike Wikan, Senior Designer

There were quite a few articles kicking around when it first released stating it looked worse, but I never really noticed myself.
