Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Predictions: Metroid Prime Trilogy sales

The game, which includes the 2 GC Metroid Prime games with Wii controls and the Wii game, comes out later this month for 50$.

How much do you expect it to sell the first month, until the end of the year and LT. All WorldWide.

1st month - 100k
End of the year - 250k
Lifetime - 400k

Yours?

I do believe this game could sell more than 200,000 in the first month, considering all the prime games have sold over 1 million each, I've heard many people saying they haven't played the first 2 games and saying they think it's worth to play them via Metroid prime trilogy, lifetime sales could be over 2 million. About 400,000 by the end of the year possibly.

2 million seems too high. I'd wager that majority of Metroid fans already have all the three games, but it could bring some newcomers as well. But anyways it's your prediction, expecting it to outsell 2 Metroid Prime games is not realistic.

Pixel Art can be fun.

400k LTD seems too low IMO. I think it could doo 500k+. It'll bring in new comers, and people who already have the games could want to play the games again with motion controls. Plus, price drops (not like Nintendo will do those anytime soon, lol) or promotions (you can find good deals online on Amazon/Ebay and some stores) would further help that.

I already have the 3 prime games but since I'm such a big fan of the metroid series I will still get the trilogy still. maybe 2 million is high, how about 1.6 million instead. Over a Million at least.

I'm buying it on release. I haven't played since original and with so many other games that caught my eyes, I never got the ones for the Cube or the last one on Wii. I'm excited to play them in order with Wiimote before the Other M is released.



Consoles owned: NES, N64, PS1, GC, PS2, Wii.

If your prediction comes true, which I hope it doesn't, then this game won't even last one full year in a store's inventory and the only possible way to get it is through amazon etc. or asking the store clerks.....

 

But then again I was kind of suspecting this..... Too bad I can't afford this game this year....

Anyway, if releaseed in Europe as well then maybe it can do 600k being the max take or few 50ks.



Around 500k, but it could be a surprise and sell far more, who knows.



 

 

 

 

 

It won't outsell any of the main games, that's for sure. 1 million is very unlikely in my opinion. It's not like the game is cheap. Costs as much as a new game, and these aren't new games. I don't see many people spending 50 bucks on a compilation, but I see them spending them on new games. If you already have the games it's not a cheap deal, if you don't then it's great, but I doubt many Metroid fans still miss those games.
