~~~~ Metroid Prime Corruption Save Data Problems ~~~~

~~~~~~~~

To anyone who has owned and played their copy of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and has played halfway of the title, this one is considered to be bad news for you. Retro Studios has confirmed that the save data of the said game will not be compatible on the upcoming Metroid Prime Trilogy. Lead Designer of the game, Mike Wikan has this statement over this matter.

“Due to the way the game data is allocated for production and the changes that we made in the source code, we were unfortunately unable to carry over the save file compatibility from MP3 to Trilogy.”

Metroid Prime Trilogy includes all three Prime games, the first two of which sport new widescreen modes and Wii remote-enhanced controls. The title comes bundled in a special metal box along with a game art booklet. Trilogy hits retailers August 24 for $49.99.

~~~~ Monster Hunter Sales slowed down to near nothing. ~~~~

~~~~~~~~

Much to the games popularity, Monster Hunter Tri sales after its sudden boom all went slowly downhill as stocks have remained on the shelves for quite sometime now. Retailers have ordered a bit of excess and now are sitting on their racks collecting dust. Despite the marketing done by Nintendo on the said title accompanied by Capcom. Monster Hunter TRI sales will seem to continue slipping downhill. One suspected reason for it all was the graphics and lastly the console itself.
