|A lot of varying opinions on this game.
As of this report, Metroid: Other M has averaged about 61,000 game-play hours each week, since it released. The continuing increase in the game's average hours "Per person" category is definitely encouraging, as it seems to show gamers are playing the game to completion.
The NPD data was released for the month of September last week, and Metroid: Other M has been reported to have sold 173,000 units.
While I don't consider 173,000 amazing for a Nintendo title, I think it was a decent month for Samus' new adventure, and I think it will be interesting to see how this one continues to perform going forward.
I still have not played Metroid: Other M at any length, and I don't think playing 30 seconds at Best Buy really counts. Last week, Redbox announced it will start renting video games through its kiosks, and I really hope that Metroid: Other M is one of the games they start renting. I would like to play the game, but don't see it happening soon with my gaming budget.
Have any of you purchased/rented Metroid: Other M since the last report in September? If so, have you had a chance to complete the game?
