    This site says MP3 is a 1 player game. The page is quite old, so it might (hopefully) be based on older info, but I thought it was worth posting non-the-less.

    It's true, there is no confirmation of multiplayer or online.

    How is this even remotely interesting? If it were 1P it would be out already. Thats not hard to understand. They have to adding something extra to the game and the best bet and the safest bet I think is MP and Online.

    Why not? It's not like it's taking away from the gameplay characteristics or setting. I think 1 player makes more scense, so I agree with what Nintendo says.

    If it's only singleplayer, then it has a lot less replay value. You beat the game on hard and then what do you do? With multiplayer, you can at least challenge your friends. To me, not having multiplayer would not make it worth my $50.

    This is true, but at the same time, its a METROID game. Metroid is a 1 player adventure. Thats what the game has always been about, and always will. A multi-player mode would we awesome, but I wouldn't let it be deciding factor in purchasing it or not, because the game at its core is a single player adventure.

    Zelda is different though, it always has, and always will be designed to be a one person adventure game. Zelda has always been 1 player, other than that 4 swords or whatever it was called. That's what i love about the series. One player games usualy don't have replay value, but I've played OOT 4 times through. Never get sick of it.


    Metroid on the other hand is a game that has been previously introduced with multiplayer function. And an FPS naturally should have mulitplayer.

    Prime Hunters and I am pretty sure it's multiplayer or will be just because of the demand

    not necessarily true. both prime 2 and hunters have been online, and they are the two most recent adds to the series.

    I don't care about multiplayer, I played 2 and Hunter's multiplayer and immediatley went back to playing Halo 2.

    I hope there's reduced backtracking and no dead time, I found the Metroid Prime games to be too tedius and boring at times.

    "If it was 1P it would out now" just sounds ignorant. We don't know why the delay occured. Why was SMG delayed? For online multiplayer?

    Metroid has been about the single-player experience. Yes, there's been multiplayer but it wasn't that great. Not every game has to have multiplayer. I am quite willing to pay $50 for a great Prime 3 game because I place a great value on single player/

    Exactly. Multiplayer and Online would be AWESOME (if done right..), but it's really about the 1 player experience. Now, something cool to think about..a co-op mode. Nintendo did say they were thinkng about a multi-player mode but "not in the same vein as Prime 2", so this may be a good possibility, and would be VERY cool if done right, IMO.
