Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (14th Jan)
Posted by Corbie Dillard
It's Wednesday again which can only mean one thing. It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available in the Wii Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that simple! Trust us, if we can do it, anyone can.
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.
Keep in mind that the list below is a measure of actual sales made recently, not of the total time the game has been available for sale.
Here is the list for the 14th of January:

The broken record continues as the big three are still firmly in place. We thought Fun! Fun! Minigolf might knock one of the top 3 out, but it seems to have fallen a place to #5. Our new challenger comes in the form of Cue Sports - Pool Revolution, which has now moved up to the #4 spot and is threatening. Guess we'll have to wait until next week to see if it can finally knock one of the big guns off their roost at the top of the WiiWare charts.
The big climber this month was Sandy Beach which came flying in from off the charts completely up to #12. The biggest dropper this month was My Pokemon Ranch which fell 4 spots to #13. You gotta give it credit, it's held on quite well for some time now.
Pong Toss is holding steady at #17 and Mega Man 9 is continuing its weekly drop falling another 3 spots this month to #16. Is the blue bomber on his way off the charts? Maybe he'll make a surprise comeback next week.
