Analyzing how Viva Piñata has performed in weekly sales in the time since its launch period.

VGChartz - Viva Piñata released in 2006, and despite a modest debut, the game went on to sell a very impressive 1.50 million copies worldwide. Viva Piñata is a bit of a departure from Microsoft's typical mature themed exclusives, featuring vibrant colors and seeking to appeal to people of all ages including younger gamers. Releasing a game for an audience outside of the Xbox 360's main demographic may have been risky, but because of the game's continued strong sells it was a risk that paid off. So why was Viva Piñata able to maintain strong weekly sales for an extended period of time? (Industry, Viva Pinata, Xbox 360)
