Ninetendo surfaces two Metroid themed hoax sites


Orbis Labs, which manufactures a handsome product called the 'Battle Sphere' and Channel 51, a UFO speculation site are the latest attempts at underground marketing from Nintendo. Both sites appear to have placeholders for future content are being used to promote Metroid Prime 2:Echoes which is due on November 15. We weren't impressed with the fuzzed screenshots on Channel 51, but we have gone ahead and placed an order for the Orbis Sphere since we can always use more vehicles equipped with thermal cannons.
