Wii Software Stats January Update: 'Animal Crossing' Is A Beast, 'Sonic' Whimpers

Stephen Totilo from MTV Multiplayer writes:

"I've learned the following things from my crunching of more than 1.6 million Wii owners' gameplaying habits of 41 Wii games this month:

*"Animal Crossing: City Folk" owners are indeed hardcore - they played that game, on average, almost 10 hours of the game in December, the most intense game-binging I've seen since I started making these posts!

*The 2007-2008 Wii light-gun gaming renaissance was a bust. Not only did people barely touch their light-gun games, but they touched the "Zelda"-branded one the least.

*"Wii Play" continues to defy the critics, by acutally getting played - a lot.

These are just some of the discoveries in MTV Multiplayer's fifth monthly breakdown of Wii software usage stats. Remember! I'm not tracking sales. I'm tracking how much time the people who play and rent these games actually play them. Any game can sell. But only good games get played."
