I still see MP Trilogy available for sale when out & about. Locally, I've seen it new @ Target, Best Buy, GameStop & WalMart recently. Still $50.
A local GameStop had used copies for $40.
Wasn't emblazoned on the boxart, but I recall when this came out that "limited edition" was mentioned.
Amazon, OTOH, no longer stocks it themselves & the linked retails there are asking a premium price. THis may be a game where a brick & mortar retailer is your best option. Certainly worth $50, IMO - even if you played the first 2 on GC. IMO, the MP3 Wiimote/'chuk controls are superior to the GC control pad (move like a tank). And while some graphical FX were altered/lost in the Wii translation, overall the looks of the Trilogy are nicer - partially due to tweaks Retro did, others just due to being 16x9.
