How many hours can you expect from Metroid: Other M? Data Report

September 5, 2012


Coffee Beans
Metroid: Other M was released on August 31, 2010 with a MSRP of $49.99. The game was developed by Team Ninja with CG portions made by D-Rockets, and it was published by Nintendo. Metroid: Other M received an ESRB rating of “Teen” with “Animated Blood, Violence” listed as content for gamers and parents to be aware of.

How many hours have U.S. Wii owners spent playing Metroid: Other M since the game released just over 2 years ago now? Brew yourself some coffee, and let’s take a look!

The Brew
Metroid: Other M now has approximately 111,142 U.S. Wii owners that have reported game-play data through the Wii’s Nintendo Channel, with 734 days possibly reported. The game has about 28,218 more Wii owners that have reported data just since last year’s report.

Other M’s play-time per day/session is now 2 Hours 7 Minutes, and the overall reported average has increased slightly over the last year, now sitting at 16 Hours 17 Minutes as the image above shows. The reported 1,809,294 Total Hours of game-play now is an increase of 481,021 Total Hours since the report last year.

What about critic and customer review score averages for Metroid: Other M now? The “professional” critic review score average is still 78.55%, based on 52 reviews on GameRankings.com. The customer review score average is now 72.00%, based on 260 reviews from Amazon.com.

Caffeinated Thoughts
I own Metroid: Other M now, thanks a great sale at Best Buy where I purchased the game for only $5 over the Christmas holiday this last year. Even though I own it, I still have not played the game. As a matter of fact, Metroid: Other M is not even in our house right now, as I loaned it out to our neighbor about 2 weeks ago (the same neighbor I’m borrowing Batman: Arkham Asylum from). I haven’t had an update from him yet, so I don’t know if he has made any progress in the game yet, or what he thinks of it.

If you missed how Nintendo advertised Metroid: Other M when it was released 2 years ago, you can see one commercial below for it:

As for the reported data, seeing Metroid: Other M’s reported average still sitting right above 16 hours “Per person” I think is good for the game. While Other M’s reported average is lower than Metroid Prime 3: Corruption’s reported average, if you can get 16 hours of game-play from Other M, considering its incredibly low new ($9.99 new from GameStop) and used prices in stores and from internet retailers now, I would think it’s worth giving the game a chance.

One thing I’m wondering about, is with Wii games like Metroid: Other M that shipped with known glitches, will Nintendo make an effort to get them on the Wii U’s eShop and have them properly patched up, or will games like Other M stay on the Wii console in retail format only?

Questions
Have any of you played Metroid: Other M in the last year, and if so, would you recommend it to other Wii owners? Also, do you remember how many hours you put into the game and are you sitting around the reported average “Per person”, or perhaps well above or below it?

     How many hours have Wii owners spent running around Bottle Ship, in Metroid: Other M with 370 days of data possibly reported?  Let’s take a look!

If you want to enter the contest/giveaway for the 2 years’ worth of coffee,
you can find the details by clicking this message!

Approx. Number of Players Having Reported Data
     Metroid: Other M has about 82,924 Wii owners that have reported game-play data through the Wii’s Nintendo Channel in the last year.

Number of Players Reporting Data, Increased
     We last looked at Metroid: Other M’s reported game-play from April 4th this year, you can read that report HERE.
     Just since April 4, Metroid: Other M has seen an increase of about 17,823 more Wii owners reporting data.
     Metroid: Other M has seen an increase of about 71,496 more Wii owners reporting game-play data, since the game’s debut data report last September.

Average & Total Game-Play Hours
     Metroid: Other M now has 1,328,273 Total Hours of game-play reported, an increase of 317,337 Total Hours since April.
     The game’s average time played is now 16 Hours 2 Minutes “Per person” reporting data, which is 30 Minutes more than the average that was reported from April 4, 2011.
     Metroid: Other M’s average play-time is now just over 2 Hours 11 Minutes per day/session reported.

Amazon.com Sales Information
     Metroid: Other M’s Amazon.com sale rank is #1,535, and it is currently selling for $19.99 from a third party vendor.
     (Sale rank and price recorded around 9:45PM on September 11, 2011.)

Review Score Averages
     Metroid: Other M’s “professional” review score average is 78.55%, based on 52 reviews on GameRankings.com.

     (Review score averages recorded around 9:45PM on September 11, 2011.)

Filtered Thoughts
     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.

Questions
     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?

If any of you are interested in Metroid: Other M, you can see prices for it on Amazon.com listed below:

>Metroid: Other M Crosses A Million…

April 5, 2011

>



Coffee Beans:
     We last looked at Metroid: Other M’s game-play hours as they were reported on November 29.  You can read that full report HERE.

     How many hours have Wii owners spent playing Metroid: Other M in the last 127 days reported?  Let’s take a look!

Do Metroids drink coffee?  I think that one does!

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Metroid: Other M now has 65,101 Wii owners reporting their game-play hours, through the Wii’s Nintendo Channel.

Player Increase Since Last Report:
     Metroid: Other M has seen an increase of about 27,549 more players reporting game-play data, since the last report.

Average & Total Game-Play Hours Reported:
     Metroid: Other M now has 1,010,936 Total Hours of game-play reported, an increase of 434,987 Total Hours since the end of November.
     Metroid: Other M’s average play-time is now 15 Hours 32 Minutes “Per person” reporting data, which is an increase of 12 minutes from the average recorded on November 29, and it’s 5 Hours 41 Minutes higher than the average reported when the game debuted.
     Metroid: Other M’s average play-time per session is now 2 Hours 15 Minutes.

Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
     Metroid: Other M’s Amazon.com sale rank is currently #335, and it is selling for $27.47.
     (Sale rank and price recorded around 11:50PM on April 4, 2011)

Review Score Averages:
     Metroid: Other M’s “professional” review score average is now 78.55%, based on 52 reviews on GameRankings.com.

     Metroid: Other M has a 3.5 out of 5 Stars rating on Amazon.com, based on 197 customer reviews.
     Metroid: Other M’s customer review score average is 70.45%, when the customer reviews are converted to a 100% review scale.

Where would you rate it?

     (Review score averages recorded around 11:50PM, on April 4, 2011)

Filtered Thoughts:
     It has taken Metroid: Other M 31 weeks to cross one million reported game-play hours, and while that’s not super for what I would consider a main Nintendo franchise; I think it’s decent enough for the game, considering the wide-range of opinions on it.
     It’s been interesting watching Metroid: Other M’s Amazon.com sale price over the last 4 months.  In the last report, Amazon.com had the sale price of Metroid: Other M at under $30.  For several weeks during November and December, and for just a bit into the new year, Amazon.com had the price below $30; then the price went back to $49.99 and stayed there for a while.  Just a few days ago, Amazon.com dropped the price on Metroid: Other M back below $30.
     I don’t think Nintendo has given an update on how Metroid: Other M’s sales were throughout the holidays(if so, I didn’t find it), but seeing the game discounted below $30 is something that is rarely done with main Nintendo franchises.  Mario Wii games, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and even Super Smash Bros. Brawl are still very close to their MSRPs of $49.99; so, I’m not sure if Nintendo is allowing Amazon.com to drop the price simply to clear Metroid: Other M from inventory, or if they are still printing the game and trying to reach a certain sales goal with it, just at a lower price.
     If any of you didn’t see the television commercial Nintendo ran advertising Metroid: Other M, you can watch it right here:

Questions:
     Have any of you been playing Metroid: Other M in the last 4 months?  If you just started playing it in the last 4 months, what do you think of the game?  If you completed Metroid: Other M once, have you gone back to play it again?

Metroid: Other M’s Reported Game-Play Hours

December 1, 2010

Coffee Beans:
     We last looked at the game-play hours for Samus’ latest adventure, Metroid: Other M, on October 18.  Metroid: Other M’s play-time data debuted on the Nintendo Channel on September 13, and you can see the debut play-time data HERE.

     In the last 43 days, how many hours have Wii owners spent playing Samus’ new adventure, and what are the average hours of game-play reported for Metroid: Other M?  Let’s take a look!

The hours shown above are for the United States of America Wii owners, not world-wide.

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Metroid: Other M now has 37,552 Wii owners reporting their play-time data, through the Nintendo Channel.

Player Increase Since Last Report:
     Metroid: Other M has seen an increase of about 11,826 more players reporting their game-play data, in the 43 days since the last report.

Average Hours & Total Game-Play Hours Reported:
    Metroid: Other M has 575,949 Total Hours of game-play reported, an increase of 208,351 game-play hours in the last 43 days reported.
     Metroid: Other M’s average play-time “Per person” is now 15 Hours 20 Minutes, an increase of 1 Hour 3 Minutes of average game-play time, “Per person” reporting data.
     The average Metroid: Other M play session is now just over 2 Hours 20 Minutes.

Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
     Metroid: Other M’s Amazon.com sale rank is currently #115, and is selling for $24.99.
     (Captured around 12:00AM on 12-1-10)

Review Score Averages:
     Metroid: Other M’s review score average is now 79.17%, based on 49 “professional” reviews on GameRankings.com.  This is a slight increase since the last report, which had 47 reviews reported for an average of 79.38%.
     (Captured around 12:00AM on 12-1-10)

Thoughts:
     News broke about 2 weeks ago, that Metroid: Other M has not met sales expectations in North America, and Nintendo is trying to figure out why.  Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s president, told Kotaku.com, “We believe that it could be, should be a million unit title.”  Reggie stated he didn’t think the title would reach that number through the holidays, and the title was close to half-a-million units sold so far.
     Just in the last week or so, Amazon.com has consistently had the sale price of Metroid: Other M under $30.  I wonder if perhaps Nintendo’s new strategy to get Metroid: Other M to one million units, is by allowing retailers to slash its price during the holidays?
     I still haven’t played Metroid: Other M, but the new lower price on Amazon.com has made me interested; though I will probably just end up renting it in the future.

Questions:
     If you purchased Metroid: Other M when it first released, and perhaps some Wii owners(like myself) have been on the fence about the title, would you suggest they purchase it while they can for under $30?  Or, do you think Samus’ latest adventure is more of a rental?

If anybody is interested in Metroid: Other M, you can see it priced on Amazon.com linked directly below:

Metroid: Other M’s Game-Play Hours

October 18, 2010



Coffee Beans:
     It’s been about a month since we last looked at Metroid: Other M’s game-play hours, and other data.  The last time we looked at the data was on September 24, but the game-play hours were captured on September 20 for that report.  Metroid: Other M’s game-play debuted on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel on September 13, if you missed the debut report, you can see it HERE.

     So, in the last 29 days, how much have Wii owners been playing Metroid: Other M, and has the game’s average play-time per person seen an increase or decrease?  Let’s take a look…

Click image to enlarge

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Metroid: Other M now has 25,726 players reporting their play-time data through the Wii’s Nintendo Channel.

Player Increase Since Last Report:
     Metroid: Other M has seen an increase of about 9,990 more players reporting play-time data, since the September 24 report.

Average Hours & Total Game-Play Hours Reported:
     Metroid: Other M now has 367,598 Total Hours reported, an increase of 183,896 game-play hours since the last report.
     Metroid: Other M’s average play-time, per person, is now 14 Hours 17 Minutes.  This means the game’s average play-time per person has increased by 2 Hours 36 Minutes.
     The average Metroid: Other M play session is now just over 2 Hours 26 Minutes, which is a decrease of about 14 minutes per session compared to the September 20 data.

Sales Rank & Advertised Price:
     Metroid: Other M’s Amazon.com sale rank is listed at #310, and is currently selling for $45.44.

Review Score Averages:
     Metroid: Other M’s review score average is now 79.78%, based on 47 “professional” reviews, according to GameRankings.com.  This is only a marginal increase since the last report, which had 43 reviews reported for an average of 79.38%.

     Amazon.com’s customer review score average has stayed at basically the same average, 3.5 out of 5 Stars; but Metroid: Other M has gained 44 more customer reviews, since the last report.

A lot of varying opinions on this game.

Thoughts:
     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.
Questions:
     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?

If you are interested in Metroid: Other M, you can see prices for it listed on Amazon.com linked below:

Metroid: Other M – Hours Played

September 24, 2010

Quick Brew Info:
     Metroid: Other M’s play-time data debuted last week, 14 days after it released.  Do the hours being reported/shown on the Nintendo Channel this week, look good for Samus’ latest adventure?  Let’s take a look…

Click image to enlarge

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Metroid: Other M now has 15,736 players reporting their play-time data, on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel.

Player Increase Since Last Week:
     Metroid: Other M has seen an increase of 4,308 players reporting play-time data, since last week.

Average & “Total” Game-Play Hours Increased/Reported:
     Metroid: Other M’s average hours reported, per person, are now 11 Hours 41 Minutes; with Metroid: Other M’s average game-play session, per player, being about 2 Hour 40 Minutes.
     Metroid Other M’s hours reported played, per person, have increased by 1 Hour 50 Minutes since last week.
     Metroid: Other M now has 183,702 Total Hours reported for game-play, an increase of 71,326 game-play hours since last week.

Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
     Metroid: Other M’s Amazon.com sale rank is #93, and is currently selling for $48.56.

Review Score Average:
     Metroid: Other M’s review score average, since last week, has increased to 79.38%, based on 43 reviews on GameRankings.com.  Last week its average was at 78.01%, based on 39 reviews.

     On Amazon.com, Metroid Other M has gained 24 customer reviews since the story last week, but is still showing what appears to be a 3.5 out of 5 Star rating, based on 95 customer reviews.

Still 3.5 out of 5 Stars…what would you give the game?

Thoughts/Questions:

     I think the game-play hours being reported are pretty solid for Metroid: Other M, considering the game is single-player focused.  I think it will be interesting to see if/when Metroid: Other M passes Metroid Prime Trilogy’s “Total Hours” reported.
     I have spoken with two people that have been playing Metroid: Other M, but neither have completed it yet.  I know a few of you commented last week, that you have picked up Metroid: Other M, or received it as a gift; but many of you hadn’t finished the game yet.
     If you have played Metroid: Other M, have you finished it yet; if so, about how long did it take you to finish it?

Metroid: Other M – Data Debut

September 13, 2010

Quick Brew Info:
     Metroid: Other M was released on the Nintendo Wii on August 31, 2010, and Metroid: Other M released with a MSRP of $49.99.  It was developed by Team Ninja, and published by Nintendo.

     It took 14 days for Metroid: Other M’s play-time data to debut on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel.  So, in the last 2-weeks, how much have Wii owners been playing Metroid: Other M?  Let’s take a look…

Click image to enlarge

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Metroid: Other M has 11,428 players reporting their play-time data, for its debut on the Nintendo Channel.

“Total” Game-Play & Average Hours Played Reported:
     Metroid: Other M has 112,376 Total Hours reported for its debut, with a 9 hours 51 minutes average play-time per person reporting data.

     The average play-time per session for Metroid: Other M is just under three hours, sitting at about 2 hours 50 minutes per play session.

Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
     Metroid: Other M’s sale rank is #56 and is selling for $48.93 on Amazon.com.

Review Score Averages:
     Metroid: Other M’s review score average is 78.01%, based on 39 “professional” reviews on GameRankings.com.

     On Amazon.com, Metroid: Other M has about a 3.5 out of 5 Star rating, based on 71 customer reviews.

What would you rate Metroid: Other M?

Thoughts:
     I have not purchased or played Metroid: Other M yet, but I have a friend that has offered to mail me his copy after he finishes it, so I can try it.  I may take him up on that offer, once I finish a few more games!

     I think the sales rank of Metroid: Other M on Amazon.com does show that the sales for the game look to have dropped off considerably, for what I would think is a “core” Nintendo franchise game.  I don’t know if Nintendo plans to continue advertising Metroid: Other M any during the Christmas season this year, or if the live-action commercial is the only one they plan on showing, but I think it will be interesting to see how sales continue for it in the next few months.
     If you didn’t see the live-action commercial for Metroid: Other M, you can watch it right here!
http://www.youtube.com/v/Nv_jRUnG-40?fs=1&hl=en_US

     As for the play-time hours, it seems the average play-time per person reported is about how long the single-player campaign for Metroid: Other M takes to complete(9 hours, from what I have read).  I would imagine most of the users reporting play-time data for Metroid: Other M have already finished the main campaign, and may now be trying to get 100% in it.

Questions:
     Did anybody here purchase Metroid: Other M, and if so, how much have you played it?  If you have completed the campaign, do you see Metroid: Other M as a game that you will play multiple times? Or, is once enough?

The Conduit, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex:
Wii Nintendo Channel Data, Amazon.com Sale Ranks, and GameRankings.com Review Score Averages
(click image to enlarge)
Number of Players Reporting Data:
The Conduit has 56,450 players reporting data on the Nintendo Channel.
Metroid Prime Trilogy has 34,933 players reporting data.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex has 34,645 players reporting their play-time data.
Player Increase Over Last Week:
The Conduit had 915 more players reporting data this week.
Metroid Prime Trilogy had 973 more players reporting data this week.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex had 2,179 more players reporting their data on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel this week over last week.
“Total” Game-Play Hours Reported/Increased:
The Conduit had 1,242,658 Total Hours reported, an increase of 21,227 hours from last week.
Metroid Prime Trilogy had 848,160 Total Hours reported, an increase of 34,856 hours.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex had 1,129,676 Total Hours reported, an increase of 116,984 hours.
Amazon.com Sales Rank:
The Conduit‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #503 and its current selling price is $17.94.
Metroid Prime Trilogy‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #535 and its current selling price is $49.55 + $3.99 shipping.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #207 and its current selling price is $46.99.
GameRankings.com Review Score Averages:
All three games have kept the same review score average and number of reviews, as they had last week.
The Conduit’s review score average is 72.23% based on 64 reviews.
Metroid Prime Trilogy’s review score average is 92.27% based on 33 reviews.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex’s review score average is 78.76% based on 33 reviews.
Thoughts:
Keeping my “prediction” posted, I said 4 weeks ago, I think that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex will pass The Conduit’s “Total Hours” reported played, on Monday, March 15, 2010.
Monday’s update could be surprising, and perhaps Call of Duty will pass The Conduit tomorrow, but I’m still saying it will pass The Conduit on Monday, March 15.
Also, I was glad to see Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector’s Edition on Amazon.com being available from 3rd party vendors for right around $50.  Some of them have the game marked up, the “Featured Merchant” has Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector Edition’s price as $93.99 + $4.99 shipping, but at the time of this posting, there were four merchants with the game between $49.55 and $49.99 + $3.99 shipping.
If you haven’t picked up Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector’s Edition, don’t forget that Nintendo confirmed they have canceled shipping/producing the game, at least for the time being.
Question:
I’m still not sure why Nintendo isn’t keeping Metroid Prime Trilogy in production, or at least Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, as a “Player’s Choice” type of title for new Wii owners to pick up.  It looks as of though Metroid: Other M will be the only Wii Metroid game, that Wii owners will be able to buy brand new as of June 27, 2010.
Do you think Nintendo isn’t shipping/producing Metroid Prime Trilogy anymore because of how soon Metroid: Other M is going to be released, and they don’t want newer Wii owners confused if they see two Metroid titles sitting on a shelf?


If you’re interested in any of the games discussed, you can see some of Amazon.com’s new and used prices below.  You can even currently pre-order Metroid: Other M.

Thoughts:
Keeping my “prediction” posted, I said 4 weeks ago, I think that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex will pass The Conduit’s “Total Hours” reported played, on Monday, March 15, 2010.
Monday’s update could be surprising, and perhaps Call of Duty will pass The Conduit tomorrow, but I’m still saying it will pass The Conduit on Monday, March 15.
Also, I was glad to see Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector’s Edition on Amazon.com being available from 3rd party vendors for right around $50.  Some of them have the game marked up, the “Featured Merchant” has Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector Edition’s price as $93.99 + $4.99 shipping, but at the time of this posting, there were four merchants with the game between $49.55 and $49.99 + $3.99 shipping.
If you haven’t picked up Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector’s Edition, don’t forget that Nintendo confirmed they have canceled shipping/producing the game, at least for the time being.
Question:
I’m still not sure why Nintendo isn’t keeping Metroid Prime Trilogy in production, or at least Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, as a “Player’s Choice” type of title for new Wii owners to pick up.  It looks as of though Metroid: Other M will be the only Wii Metroid game, that Wii owners will be able to buy brand new as of June 27, 2010.
Do you think Nintendo isn’t shipping/producing Metroid Prime Trilogy anymore because of how soon Metroid: Other M is going to be released, and they don’t want newer Wii owners confused if they see two Metroid titles sitting on a shelf?


If you’re interested in any of the games discussed, you can see some of Amazon.com’s new and used prices below.  You can even currently pre-order Metroid: Other M.
