that is true for the gamecube version.. however you sir are on teh wii boards, they redid metroid prime (and i think echoes too?) with new controls for the wii. they also did this with pikmin and i think mario tennis. so when they say the release date was 2009 or whenever they said it (idk i didnt check i just know this) they were talking about the release to the wii. also if you didnt know they took those 2 games and put them together with metroid prime 3 and made the trilogy disc.
