Coffee Beans
Guitar Hero 5
 released on September 1, 2009 for the Wii.  It had at least two versions for sale, one was the software version only and one was a “Guitar Bundle”.  The Wii version of Guitar Hero 5 was developed by Vicarious Visions, and published/distributed by RedOctane and Activision.  The game received a “Teen” rating from the ESRB with “Mild Lyrics, Mild Suggestive Themes” listed as content for gamers/parents to be aware of.
     The Beatles: Rock Band was released on September 9, 2009 for the Wii, and it had at least three versions selling on Amazon.com at the time.  The Wii version was developed by Pi Studios, and published/distributed by MTV Games and EA Distribution.  The game received a “Teen” rating from the ESRB with “Mild Lyrics, Tobacco Reference” listed as content for gamers/parents to be aware of.

Both games released a little over 2 years ago, and we last looked at the data from May 3, 2010.  Let’s take a look and see if The Beatles: Rock Band still has more Wii owners reporting data, or if perhaps Guitar Hero 5 has been strumming its way along, and has now passed The Beatles: Rock Band.

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80′s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
