I recently ordered the Metroid Prime Trilogy off Gamestop, used, for $70.

I've been told there is no such thing as a Metroid Prime Trilogy NON Collector's edition, but my box does not say COLLECTOR'S EDITION on the front like the metal box+sleeve editions do.

Mine is a regular Wii case. The art on the front matches the art on the front of the metal box of the genuine metal boxed edition.

And the art on the back matches the art on the back of the sleeve of the genuine metal boxed edition.

I can find no mention anywhere of multiple editions being released but this one is clearly different. Is it still the same game? Does it include the following features:

"16x9 wide-screen presentation"
"New Wii controls for Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes"

Which are listed at the bottom of the front of the sleeve in the metal boxed edition.

ITS A SCAM DISK! GameStop has been ordering games to be produced and then buying them new, and then opening them and selling them as used just so they can sell them above the MSRP. Its a dirty underhanded trick and you paid way too much for a new game. Barstewards.

How would Gamestop do this? I thought Nintendo discontinued production of Metroid Prime Trilogy years ago.

I watched the entire video and he was talking about Fatal Frame and Xenoblade Chronicles.

As far as I'm aware, Metroid Prime Trilogy was never reprinted by its publisher.

It said in the comments they were doing it to the Metroid Prime Trilogy as well. Also he pointed out the secret manufacturer from where they are getting the disks from. Its true.

I see.

Well as long as the contents of the disc are identical to the original prints, I'm fine with it.

But you paid almost twice as much for it. :(

$70 is a decent price for Metroid Prime Trilogy these days.

Obviously. It's posted on the internet. They can't post anything on the internet that isn't true.

Rare or not, the experience provided by Metroid Prime Trilogy is more than worth $70. With what's been offered on the Wii U at $60, I'd even argue the individual games can be worth near $70.
