    As we near closer and closer to the release of a godly game that I feel may actually stand up to Halo 3 as far as story line and gameplay go. I am already set that Wii motion gameplay is better than duel analog, and I am a man who loves me some duel analog... mmmm....

    Eitherway recently was released the infamous Metroid Prime 3 Preview Channel (and if you are a Wii owner you know this)
    We have video footage being released often to tell us what comes in the game! :yikes:

    So I get's to thinkin'.

    What would be a good way to RAISE the hype of a game very shortly before launch? Announcing online to all the people who are waiting!

    I think that the preview channel will announce the inclusion of Multiplayer gaming in Metroid Prime 3 right before it is released.

    Now you say, "Retro announced there is no multiplayer in MP3"

    Well here is what I DO know. Iwata (CEO of Nintendo) approached retro and spoke to them about Metroid Prime 3. He realizes in full that Halo 3 is a HUGE competative beast to go up against and it is going to be a 360 seller. He told them that they needed MP3 to be better than Halo 3 and better than any game out on the Wii. He said he wanted better visuals than anything on Wii, and better gameplay, and better story.
    Now Iwata isn't a fool. I am sure he understands perfectly well that the real reason anyone BUYS Halo is not for its nice Campaign (even if it is fun). People buy it to play some sweet online match ups.
    What does the Wii not have at this moment?

    A Good First Person Shooter.

    What is Metroid Prime 3? A Good First Person Shooter

    What does Wii not have this moment?

    An online FPS. And it is time we got one. I think that Retro lied to the audience and plans to release this last minute information to send the gaming world in a frenzy.

    Metroid Prime 3 needs to be THE holder for Wii, just as Halo 3 will be THE holder for 360.

    What do I think of nintendo if their decision comes to not add multiplayer to MP3?

    I lose ALL sorts of respect for the company entirely.

    It is a dumb marketing move not to put it in

    It will make people lose a lot of respect for the Wii altogether

    And it is really a big kick in the balls to anyone who owns a Wii. :mad5:

    Sure the campaign on Metroid Prime 3 will kickass.

    But here is a game where you have a large assortment of Bounty Hunters and even more than that! You have different visors, power-ups, and beams.

    People told me that Metroid Prime 3 cant be online because online sucks on Metroid.

    Metroid Prime 2 online: alright

    Metroid Prime Hunters DS online: better, praised

    What would be the next step? improvement! and at what better time?

    That is why I feel that if nintendo fails to include online multiplayer support in Metroid Prime 3. I will feel that they have really lost the true respect of the hardcore gamer... It will hurt me and I will be pissed for a good long while.

    Needless to say I will still buy MP3. It looks kickass. But honestly....

    i know i read it, and yes it will be an aboslutley huge kick in the balls of the hardcore gamers without it, but i dont think that theyd save announcing online till the last minute, i mean seriously its already the 22nd!

    well maybe that article is to make the hardcore gamer a little happier, that there is somewhat of a side quest in the game now. that article doesnt mean they arent telling us there is an online multiplayer. though i can see it can get ones hopes up.

    Yea I also dont see it happening. Would be mighty nice and a perfect marketing stunt.

    This would give the game so much more extended play time

    the 'metroid prime 3' channel hasnt came out yet in australia i know you may be thinking 'why is someone from australia on this site' it's because theres no other sites like this for australia im not sure because i got the wii system 3 update yesterday and it came out 7/8 in your country but what fustrates me most is where always last its like nintendo says 'screw them's and takes a huge dump on us we have to wait till next year to get corruption and it sucks

    wait till next year?!? i thought we'd get it by christmas atleast, and theres heaps of austrlians on this site. MP3 is gonna have online, that record sharing thing, but it could be thats all nintendo is tellin us, saving the big news till closer to release (when is the release date for amercia?) I mean, why include online if its just for record sharing, metroid needs to have online multiplayer

    I don't think we will be seeing online. I just don't think were ready, and if somehow it happens..I don't think it would be anything super cool, you know?

    Online play in games seems like a given, right? In my personal opinion..it's hurting the gaming industry and it's entirity. I don't want to explain why I feel that way becuase most of you would not understand where I'm coming from.
