Shigsy happy with Wii Music sales

Shigsy happy with Wii Music sales

Shigeru Miyamoto, senior games genius at Nintendo recently sat down for a roundtable discussion. He commented that he was pleased with the sales figures for Wii Music, saying they were "not too bad" (or not-o too bad-o?).

Wii Music made it to #1 on the Japanese games chart in its first week, selling close to 100,000 copies. The game is now out in North America as well. Shigsy feels it will be a slow burner, with good sales levels for the foreseeable future.

God, I'm sorry, but I can't stand the Wii music hype. I'm fine with it being something for the casual gamers, but the hype for such a petty game. It's just too much.

This game has some good features, like over 60 instruments and you can actually LEARN to play drums, IF you can get your hands on a Wii Balance Board, which is still flying off the shelves. This could just be like a slow burning candle like Shigsy said, until The Conduit or some other big game blows it clear off the table.

Doubt it. So much bad publicity by journalist companies. Interesting though, it got a better score than Konami's Rock Revolution.
