Metal Slug 3 is reduced also because Metal Slug 1 just came out (also 1.99).

I'm contemplating grabbing both games.

Intetesting that the games were ported (or at less published) under different companies. I wonder if Dotemu's decision to price the first one at $1.99 will force SNK to make this price drop permanent.

The Metal Slug games are great but I always thought Metal Slug 3 was overpriced at $6.99 when you can get entire collections of the games for like $10 or so used (I have the Wii collection).

SNK Playmore contracted with Dotemu to port the games over. This is actually more like how the rest of the game industry works. Dotemu, to my understanding, has no control over the pricing or anything... they only can do what SNK Playmore approves.

You're right. Only looked at the thread title for Metal Slug 1. Didn't realize that SNK also was publishing that one as well.

This worth my 2 bucks even if I've never played any MS games?

If you're into Run'N'Gun titles, YES!

Which one is better, 3 or 1? I already got 3, is it worth my time to get 1? And is 1 on an early adopter sale, or is it regular price?

Decided to go ahead and make a run on SNKP games. I grabbed both Metal Slug's, KOFi, and Blazing Star. Not bad for $6.48 after tax and all.
