NPD: Behind the Numbers, November 2008

Holiday Music

The NPD Group released an extended top 20 software list on Friday. It gives a broader view of the software landscape, and also shows an interesting trend: music-oriented titles appear to sell well on the Wii.

Top 20 Nov 2008

Of the five music titles in the top 20, the Wii has the top three: Guitar Hero: World Tour at  number 7, Wii Music at number 10, and Rock Band (the original game, not Rock Band 2 due in mid-December) at number 13. Further down the list are Guitar Hero: World Tour for the Xbox 360 (15th) and PlayStation 2 (17th).

The other key music title currently out, Rock Band 2, did not make the all-format top 20 nor did it make the Xbox 360 top 10 for the month. It was, however, the 10th best-selling game on the PlayStation 3 in November (behind the PS3 version of Guitar Hero: World Tour, which was fifth).
