Nintendo Throwback Sale 3: Metroid Prime: Trilogy $10 for Wii U, Mario Kart 8 $45, Mario Golf + more

The third week offerings for Nintendo’s Throwback Sale have just gone public, after last week’s release of Punch-Out!! for Wii U and the prior week’s deal on Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Wii U. Once again, you only have one week to grab a single steeply-discounted Wii U title from Nintendo’s eShop, plus smaller discounts on several Wii U and 3DS releases.

This week’s star attraction is Nintendo’s Wii U version of Metroid Prime: Trilogy, the 2009 Wii collection of Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in one download for $9.99 (reg. $20 digital). Discontinued and previously selling for as much as $300 on disc for the Wii, Metroid Prime: Trilogy is an excellent value for the Wii U. A Wii Remote and Nunchuk are required to play the game. Also available for the next week at reduced prices are:

  • Mario Golf (GBC) for Nintendo 3DS: $2.49 (Reg. $5)
  • Mario Golf World Tour for Nintendo 3DS: $22.49 (Reg. $30)
  • Metroid (NES) for Nintendo 3DS: $3.49 (Reg. $5)
  • Mario Kart 8 for Wii U: $45 (Reg. $60)
  • Super Mario Kart (SNES) for Wii U: $6 (Reg. $8)

Reports have suggested that Nintendo will continue to release additional Wii games such as Sin & Punishment 2 for the Wii U, but it’s unclear whether they’ll be part of the Throwback sale. Some of the Wii ports will no longer require special Wii controllers to play on the Wii U; others (including Super Mario Galaxy 2, Punch-Out!!, and Metroid Prime: Trilogy) unfortunately do.

Check out our Wii U Buyers’ Guide for recommendations on the right Wii U bundles, accessories, and games to purchase, as well as our daily gaming deals for additional discounts. Pre-order deals for Kirby: The Rainbow Curse ($50) and Mario Party 10 ($50) are amongst many we’re currently tracking!

Roundup: the best soundbars to bring your home theater to life

Lifestyle2013PlaybarSubLiving

Flat screen HDTVs have come a long way in their development in the last few years, one of the down falls in their ever slimming design is speaker placement. Many HDTVs now ship with rear-facing speakers in an effort to slim down its profile. Simply put, your beautiful 4K television sounds terrible because the speakers are aimed towards the wall instead of the viewer.

There are a few ways to solve this problem, but the simplest option with the best results is a soundbar. For years, 5.1 surround sound systems have been the cream of the home theater crop but consumers are finding the wiring and installation process to be not worth the struggle. Soundbars are much simpler to install and offer a wide variety of extras such as wireless subwoofers, HDMI inputs and wireless Bluetooth audio at very competitive prices.

Below we’ve rounded up some of our top soundbar picks for each size budget, plus a number of other options as well.
