Wii Music debuts at No. 1 in Japan

Ross Miller

Another day, another bajillion dollars. Sure, we all may give Wii Music some flak, but we never thought for a second that the game wouldn't sell like gangbusters. In its first week of release, Nintendo's rhythm experiment moved 92,000 units, according to Famitsu (via Chart Get!). That's about half of Wii Sports' first week of sales in Japan (approx. 182,000, via VG Chartz) -- and that launched unbundled alongside the console.

Rounding out the top 5 software for the week of October 13 to 19 are Pokémon Platinum (DS; 72,000), Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida Or 2 (PSP; 59,000), Rhythm Tengoku Gold (DS; 51,000) and Culdcept DS (50,000). According to the data, the top 30 was comprised of 14 titles for DS, 8 for Wii, 4 each for PSP and PS2 and zilch for PS3 and Xbox 360. The Media Create figures will be out this weekend. We won't get the North American sales data from NPD until next month.
