Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to miss 2007?

US online retailer drops summer '07 release date in favour of the last day of the year

US online retailer Best Buy has sent out an email notifying customers who have pre-ordered Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for Wii that the release date has changed from summer '07 to New. Year's. Eve.

Will it or won't it make 2007? It's a question that's repeatedly being asked more and more. Back in February we reported that Nintendo US boss Reggie Fils-Aime told MTV: "The focus on 'Prime 3' is to make that the stellar game for a first-person experience on the platform. What that means is we're going to make sure it's perfect when we launch it."

Now Jopystick reports that Best Buy has pulled its summer date saying it has been informed that the release date has changed.

We'll chase Nintendo and let you know.
