I still have not played Metroid: Other M, because my backlog of video games is still not complete! Perhaps one days(or year) I will give Metroid: Other M a play-through, but until then I will just keep watch on its reported game-play hours.
If any of you are new Wii owners and missed how Nintendo advertised Metroid: Other M when it released, below is the commercial they ran for the game:
Seeing Metroid: Other M still increasing at a decent pace for Total Hours reported, and the average hours reported "Per person" increasing, I think is encouraging and shows Wii owners are still playing the game; thought its overall Amazon.com sales rank not being in the "Top 1,000" is really low for a Nintendo title.
I stated back in April's post, how it had been interesting watching Metroid: Other M's price change so much, and that is still the case now. Amazon.com currently has it selling for $19.99 + $3.99 shipping from a third party vendor, while Amazon.com itself has the game listed at $47.03.
GameStop.com has Metroid: Other M's list price as $19.99 new, and $17.99 used. You can see both the new and used prices, HERE.
From most listed sales prices for the game, from Amazon to GameStop, it would appear that Metroid: Other M is destined to be a Nintendo Selects title, but it would be the first Nintendo Selects title that has a "Teen" rating; so perhaps all Nintendo will do is give it an "official" price drop without any promotion.
Have any of you purchased and play Metroid: Other M in the last few months, and if so, what do you think about the game?
If you own the game, would you say $20 or less is a great price for the game? Or, is it worth just a weekend rental?
