Metroid: Other M $7.99 at Best Buy

Metroid fans, young and old have many opinions on Metroid: Other M. Some some like it, some have been on the fence, yet others have practically boycotted the game entirely! Many have decided not to even attempt it.

US Retailer Best Buy has given us all the opportunity to purchase the game at an extreme discount and give it another shot. The Best Buy web site lists the normal retail at $49.99, but shows the discounted price at only $7.99! I had to laugh though, because the used copies begin at $9.99.  Other games at the same price point include: Are you smarter than a 5th Grader, Shawn White Snowboarding: World Stage, Trauma Center: Second Opinion, and Martian Panic.  Although Metroid: Other M reviews were not that great, I am not sure that it belongs amongst these other titles.

While looking through the discounted titles, I found that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is discounted to $8.99 and Hello Kitty Seasons is $11.99!  Now going on price alone, do you think that Hello Kitty is worth more than a Metroid and a Zelda title regardless of reviews?  I am not so sure.  Either way, I would urge you to act fast if you want to snag your copy.  I am sure they will go fast!

Are there any games that you didn’t buy because of bad reviews, but would pick up at a discounted price as low as $7.99?
