    I think Perfect Dark did something that no others have done since: it made playable a multiplayer game into a single player one. It's got a tonne more features that were really quite innovative (psychosis gun, laptop gun, remote controlled rocket launchers, the ability to actually instruct computer players to do different things etc). Though I agree it didn't "revolutionise". I think people need to realise that whether it's revolutionary or not, it will still be a game that looks incredibly promising.

    The lack of online play is needed if they want it to look as good as it can.
    I'm not too bothered about online tbh. It's always better to have a few people round, with some beers, dorritos and such. I appreciate that online would be nice, but not essential for it's success.

    Agreed, with everything. It was innovative. I love that game.

    So MP3 will not be revolutionary, just innovative. Is that better?

    The game is pretty obviously evolutionary, not revolutionary. What gives it the potential to be one of the greats is not some unbelievable innovation or creativity, but rock-solid execution and the ability for pin-point accuracy (tight controls are a common Nintendo strength). Online play, doubtful as it is, would give a bigger audience greater access to that execution and more reason to get deeper into the game, further ingraining MP3 into our hearts and minds.

    It isn't really an insult to say that something isn't revolutionary. Frequently the first company to do something isn't the one that survives. Being first comes with many pitfalls and perils. Usually, the company that comes in behind the revolutionaries and learns from all their mistakes and triumphs succeed.

    The release date is late August (20th?) and was announced several weeks ago. Given the speed at which Nintendo is approaching online activity (Very, very slowly), I'd be amazed to see an HD come in at E3. But I wouldn't be surprised the rumor of new hardware being into'd was true.

    Absolutely, just like the Dreamcast and online play.

    Interestingly though, it seems to have become a deal-breaking feature. I think Nintendo were right to hold out of online til this long - it's not making it standard, it's a creditable feature. Also the fact that there were tonnes of people that didn't have broadband speed internet access back in 2001. I know I didn't (not at home anyway).

    Your all entirely correct. Of course, you could interpret 'revolutionary' as the first game to do something. I suppose that's fair. All I was saying is that I don't think that's the best way of terming it. I class something as 'revolutionary' only when it actually creates a revolution; i.e. changing how a genre/game is played that is taken as the new standard.

    Anyone I think we've exhausted that topic

    As for online I think it's really important for any game to become "big" these days. I wouldn't say I agree with Nintendos pace, but it does seem to be quickening. I think it was right to hold off last gen but they should of done more this gen. Still, it does seem to be coming. Just not for Metroid.

Really think about what a revolution is.
    If i sound like a dick, toasty. So your a little more closed minded then me, oh well. I have a Wii and some FPS games for it so i already know what the layout of MP3 will be like.
    On the contrary, it WILL BE the first fps to use the wii-remote nunchuk to it's (nearly)full potential. You cannot disagree with that.

    You misread my comment. I agree with you.

    So MP3 will not be revolutionary, just innovative. Is that better?
    Imo, no, it isnt. It is somewhere inbetween revolutionary and innovative. Why? Because every single wii game that uses motion controls is innovative. Innovative wont cut it for MP3, just like MP3 wont cut it for revolutionary.

    Its simply...revolinnovative

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    Metroid prime 3 will mostly sell to the people that have played and loved the first 2. SSBM, SMG, and Halo 3 are going to EVERYBODY cause you dont need any other games to get into the bandwagon of these games. SSBM cause it hasnt changed that much SMG cause everybody loves mario and HAlo 3 cause anybody that owns a xbox 360 knows wut halo 3 is all about and will buy it for the online play. Also now a days if a game doesnt have online, its considered not up to the times. So Metroid prime 3......you know

    Not necessarily.. People who like the FPS genre may be inclined to buy MP3 as there really aren't any other decent FPS's out YET. I for one have never played Metroid 1 or 2 and plan on buying MP3..

    I got both. I was very impressed with Metroid Prime, but I haven't played the second one, as it requires 60hz TV. My TV is very old, and cannot do that...

    Still, I've got a while to play it (Being in the UK especially)...
