Aha, so that's why my Wii was blinking this morning. I wasn't sure if it was just in a good mood or someting was up. Does the Wii always do that when there is something special going on that Nintendo wants you to know about?

To clarify further on what tabsina said, If its blinking blue, then check your messages becuase Nintendo sent you a notice about an update or something else cool.

 I didnt' see the pictures, but i only had time to watch the videos this morning before work, so i'll have to go back and check again later.




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

Holy crap batman!

I just got up and ready for work. Set some cereal down for my kids to eat and whoa my Wii isa glowin'. Turned it on, check the message and YES a MP3 preview. Went to shopping channel, downloaded preview, and began to watch both videos. They are really nice. Damn this game is gonna be great. Really want 8.13.07 to hurry up and get hear so I can see other videos.

How many of you noticed the special picture you can uncover?

@Soriku -- where did you see they will come out next week? I know they already have the ESRB ratings, but I have not seen them given a release date yet. Though It would make sense to release them once a week to help drive a push for MP3.

Prime seems to be going so much toward Halo that I could see them putting "Finish the fight " at the end of the first trailer. Either way it looks like this game is going to be good.


This is exactly what I was thinking during the first preview.  The style makes it look a ton like Halo, especially with the music.  I think this is both good, because it could get more casual attention this way, and bad, because its really nothing like Halo in gameplay so people may not understand its more of an adventure game.  

Either way, I am really happy Nintendo is doing this kinda advertising and that it is actually really good looking.  Things are looking up for Nintendo's advert department and for Metroid. 



I agree. This was a very good marketing stradegy for Nintendo. I love these new videos. I plan on getting Metroid on its launch day.

Has anyone from Europe or Australia tried changing their region to USA? I would try it, but don't want to lose my 200 or so Wii points unless i'm sure i'll get a channel in return.

I tried, but it's no use. The is no 'United States' option in the 'Choose Country' option. If you have a PAL Wii you have to wait like I have to *cries*

PS: That's the best ever trailer I EVER so for a game. No comparison. I just screams "GET THE GAME OK?!?!"

It is a hardcore game through and through. You will get your ass kicked by bosses. You will be stumped by the sometimes complex, but never overbearing, exploration.

Is it just me, or is the suit in the first 'scratch and sniff' screenshot different?

Cool trailer...I hope the whole game isn't all "kick-ass Halo action" though.

I hope they keep enough atmosphere from the first 2 games...I don't think we need to worry though.



LEFT4DEAD411.COM
Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

is it just me that thinks conspiracy or is it a coincidence that matt of ign wrote the anti hype article a day before the actual hype started? hehehehe again good marketing strategy nintendo ;) didn't work with me though........i knew i was getting this baby since the first day i saw it and more so when i actually saw it moving...smoother than vanilla ice cream hmmmmm..
