Last week, we reported on GameStop selling pre-owned copies of Xenoblade Chronicles for a whopping $90. Many fans cried foul as GameStop had exclusive rights to distribute the title in the US. The question of whether or not this constituted a monopolistic practice was even debated pretty heavily on our forums. GameStop replied that they were planning to do this with other “vintage” titles such as Metroid Prime Trilogy. Well, it appears they’ve made good on that promise, as the Wii collection is now available for purchase on GameStop’s website.

The cost of Metroid Prime Trilogy doesn’t bear the same stigma that Xenoblade Chronicles does. Unlike the latter title, it was available from other retail chains in its initial release, albeit in extremely limited quantities. It is interesting that GameStop is, essentially, matching the price that the title is going for on eBay, however. eBay and Amazon, after all, have been a strong outlet for gamers looking to get more money back on used games than what GameStop offers.

Will you take this opportunity to finally claim your copy of Metroid Prime Trilogy? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Hah, suckers! I nabbed mine day one. Got the poster and the T-shirt. I’ve since outgrown the T-shirt, but the Poster I had laminated. Best deal I’ve ever gotten on just about anything. 3 masterpieces, the aforementioned paraphernalia, and an art book with a brief summary of the story behind the 3 games, all for $50. Win.

    This isn’t nearly as suspicious as the Xenoblade deal, since we know for a fact that MP Trilogy isn’t being reprinted. GameStop was just hoarding a bunch of these games until they had enough to send them out to many stores, it seems. I wonder if most of these copies are coming with the steel book and everything?

    I actually got lucky enough to find a complete copy of the game at GameStop back in 2011 for $65. It’s worth every penny though– $85 isn’t too bad for three amazing games (the first of which is arguably one of the greatest games ever made).
