That's what it looks like...unless Nintendo surprises us at E3. Considering their track record the last few years on what they consider "hardcore" games these days, it seems unlikely that they will take the time to make a new Metroid, when they can rake in the cash with no effort with these remakes.
Now that I think of it, is Punch Out Wii really that different than the old Punch Out?? Most of the old characters are there with the exact same moves. The only thing that really makes it different is that it has multiplayer, just as the MP Trilogy will have multiplayer. But is that different enough to warrant another remake? Why not a completely new Metroid with multiplayer? At least put in an online mode, I mean they did it for the DS Metroid!

Thank the lawd, I was hoping someone would make a thread. I'll have my full response up sometime later, but I am very happy you made this. lol
They basically said "Screw YOU" to everyone that already purchased Metroid Prime 3, to everyone that only wanted one of the NPC Metroid games, and to everyone that will purchase Metroid Prime 3 between now and August.
For the "their new games aren't even that new" thing you should also throw in the fact the "new" Animal Crossing (no matter how much I loved it) was hardly different from the Gamecube game.Not only are we getting old games, and now compilations of old games, but our "new" games are lacking new content.
Excitebots might be the only 100% new Nintendo game over a span of a year, besides Wii Sports Resort, if you count that as a game.

You know i'm actually happy that they are doing this. I can honestly say that i never played any of the Prime games. Even though Prime 3 came out for the Wii, i didn't get it because it's the 3rd part of the story. Now 3 games for the price of 1 and updated resolutions and controls. This is a real deal. So thank you NIntendo. Even if Nintendo is releasing this to buy time for a new Metriod or anything else, this is still a great deal.

@ AlexSaysDid you forget to finish your sentence?
When I type a response I usually type a sentence for every point I plan on addressing, and then I elaborate on each.
For that half-sentence I started typing, decided I'd come back later, and then forgot about it. lol

Because you know, that move didn't work very well for Grand Theft Auto. I may just pick this up, seeing as how i've only played a little of the first MP. Same goes for Chibi Robo. The others I might get when they recieve price drops (which will be a while... DK Jungle Beat was altered, so it's not impossible to make these games a slightly different experience.

What good point in there would you like people to address?

I see this like the Orange Box was for Half Life 2: a great way to get people into Metroid. If you already own 2 or 3 of the prime games this obviously isn't for you. But for the 49 Million that didn't buy Prime 3, this is a great way to advertise Prime 4 (or whatever it will be. However, when Valve released the Orange Box, they did let you buy Portal, Episode 2 and TF2 on their own.

Are they going to release Prime 4 though?
Shouldn't they have released a new Mario Tennis, instead of rehashing the old one?
Couldn't they have made a Donkey Kong game with the visuals of Super Mario Galaxy? Instead of repackaging a GC game? Granted the DK game plays better from what I've read, but it's the principal of the thing.

My guess is that if this sells well, they will make a Metroid Prime 4. I never played any of the Metroid Prime games so I will definately pick this one up, but I can see why people would be upset by this.

Unless they're batshit crazy they will make more Metroid games.

I don't think there will be another Prime. From what I understand, Corruption is the final installment in that series.

All I can say, I'll rather buy Metroid Prime 3 alone. It may have mutiplayer, but not putting it online when Metroid Prime: Hunters manage to pull it off well (With voice chat!) makes this a no-deal for me. Let's just say I'm going to pretend it never happend, and hopefully, so will the majority of you.

Hey, personally I'm all over this. I love the franchise but just can't get into the first Prime. I suspect that the reason is that I don't really like FPS games in general and playing with the Gamecube controller just feels rather clunky. Using Wii controls actually seems like it could be more intuitive to me but I haven't wanted to get Prime 3 before finishing the first two and since I hardly haven't started even on the first game I haven't bought either Echoes or Corruption. Therefore the NPC games sounded great to me. And now I get them all at once? That's just perfect! I'll just get rid on my copy of Prime and then only stick to Trilogy. I just hope it's released in the EU aswell.

Yeah, how dare Nintendo put together $110.00 worth of content into a $50.00 game! If there ever was a modern-day Hitler, bang, Nintendo right there. They are clearly evil for charging less than $20.00 on average for three of their best games.

I feel really stupid... I bought MP3:Corruption last month used for $30... And I already own MP on GCN. So I'm shelling out $50 for MP2, awesome! (It would been $30 as a NPC! title)
@Chicken BrutusPunch-Out!! is awesome on Wii... I can't believe how many people think it's "more of the same".

Why people keep asking this is beyond me. MP3 was the end of the Prime series; no ifs or buts about it. In addition, Nintendo has already said that another Metroid wasn't forthcoming in the near future, although I wouldn't mind another 2D installment.
Anyway, I'm very much interested in replaying the first two with MP3's control scheme. I'll be trading in my copy of MP3 ASAP.

I was excited about this trilogy pack when I was under the mistaken impression that there was a new multiplayer mode. If Red Steel 2 ends up forgoing splitscreen for some reason, I might still pick this up, though. It certainly does suck for those who already bought MP3 at the same price though.

There have always been these sort of deals in gaming, indeed in trade generally; someone will always be annoyed by it.
