    theres a rumor that says no, but i doubt that its not. i think it will be multiplayer online cause im sure nintendo saw the sucess of metroid prime hunters so they made metroid 3 online too. who knows

    I think (purely supposition) they gave a lot of consideration, behind closed doors, to putting in online modes, especially once they decided to delay it from launch title status. The new release date, not the much vaunted press release, though, is the most discouraging. Once upon a time, they had told us the game would be delayed until November. Now they've got it coming in August. That doesn't spell "we finished early", that spells "we changed the definition of 'finished'". Something got cut.

    As for no friend codes, keep dreaming.

    Teh Searchfunction would have helped aswel. Plenty of threads about this. Big N said:" Players: 1 "
    But there is still a tiny chance that this only means the singleplayer campaign. But well, it's tiny tiny.

    yeah, i doubt it will be online. i doubt it will even have multiplayer modes. if there has been no news of this by now, they're either still thinking about it, or trashed the idea

    Don't be so quick to say that, you never know. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption may stick as a 1P Shooter which means NO Wi-Fi. However there is a chance because I believe Metroid Prime Hunters has Wi-Fi for the DS. It would be a pair similar to Pokemon D/P (DS) and Battle Revolution. (Wii)

    Well, considering it seems unlikely it's going to be online, due to various sources, then by your standards, Nintendo are dumb.

    I think it will still be a great game, regardless of online functionality being included in the final product or not.

    But the multiplayer on Metroid is really gay. the game was meant to be 1 player. it's like making zelda multiplayer.

    Why not? It will still be a good, well rounded game no matter what features it has/doesn't have. Similar to what Byuakuya said.

    Apparently, that feature is pretty important to him. Indeed, I've never bothered with Halo's single-player except a few times when I was refining my aim. If that's the type of experience he has planned for his next shooter, he probably should save his money for a game that will provide it.

    That's like asking why someone wouldn't buy a car if the model didn't come out with 4WD. If that's an important feature to them, why would they ignore the lack thereof?

    My stance is that if it doesn't come with multiplayer, it may not (I'm withholding some judgment till it actually comes out) be worth 50$ to me. That doesn't mean I won't get it, it just means I'll wait until a nice used copy goes for a bargain on ebay. Alternatively, a game as big as MP3C with a good online vs mode is worth more than 50$ to me--based on how long it could prolong the life of the game alone, but the additional fun of such a fantastically controlled game would make me willing to pay a bundle for that feature.

    Every day that goes by without any indication of online ability (and with several that there won't be), it's harder and harder to believe that.

    Your reasoning isn't bad (though I'm not sure how MPH's sales actually compare to MP and MP:E)--and it's probably what fueled the initial post-delay rumors in the first place, but there's just no evidence of any online mode (much less online vs), and by this point, 2 months before the game shows up on store shelves, the game is finished. Whatever they did (new advanced control system, polish), is done already, and discs are being burned, packaged and shipped. I gather print mags already got an indepth look at MP3C at the NMS, so if online modes were there, you'd think we'd have heard about them.
