With Metroid: Other M's release more than controversial, it was released with mixed reviews and staggering sales. Released 17 months ago, the newest iteration of Metroid finally has sold over one million copies.
With the holiday season bringing tons of video game sales, Metroid: Other M was on sale from $6.99 to $9.99 and the drop in price looks to have boosted sales for the struggling Metroid title bringing it over the one million mark.
Metroid: Other M is a new look on the Metroid series giving a back story to Samus Aran. The gameplay was also changed by giving it a 2D and 3D perspective harkening back to older games in the series. Metroid: Other M was released on August 31, 2010. [VGChartz]
