How Many Hours People Play EA And Activision's Wii Games

EA and Activision have released dozens of games on the Wii and sold a bunch. But once people get these games home how much do they play them? I pulled the stats. Some results are pretty. Not all.

The following data was pulled from the Wii's Nintendo Channel, which has collected the playing history from more than two million gamers. Kotaku tracks these numbers monthly — with a new top 10 posted yesterday. I strive to extract at least one interesting slice as a bonus. For a full explanation of where the data comes from check yesterday's post.
