A Metroid Without A Home

As a gaming community, we’re used to seeing our favorite titles released as a limited edition. The curious thing is, those “limited” games–whether they’re a special edition, a collector’s edition, or any other kind of edition–seem to have a nearly unlimited supply…until now.

Some of you may have already heard that the Metroid Prime Trilogy has been discontinued. It would appear that a game is finally living up to its status as a Collector’s Edition.

Metroid Prime Trilogy, for those who don’t know, contains an updated-for-the-Wii Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, as well as the Wii original, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. I think it goes without saying that, for $50, this collection is an outstanding value.

If you’re lucky, you may be able to walk into your local Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, etc. and still find a copy. Sadly,, online shopping power-house, recently told Joystiq that, “Per Nintendo, we will no longer be offering Metroid Prime Trilogy at this time.”

If you were ever a fan of the Metroid franchise, chances are, you’ve already picked this up. On the other hand, if you’re one of the few who haven’t, I highly recommend you make a trip to your local seller-of-games and see if you can snatch up one of the final few copies of Metroid Prime Trilogy.
