Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (21st Jan)

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 21st of January:

1 (1) - World of Goo
2 (2) - Tetris Party
3 (3) - My Aquarium
4 (4) - Cue Sports - Pool Revolution
5 (12) - Sandy Beach

Well as hard as it tried, Cue Sports - Pool Revolution couldn't break into the Top 3. It seems the reign of the "Big Three" will continue with no real end in sight. I guess we could label Sandy Beach as the newest contender to knock one of the top 3 out, since it's now at #5 right behind Cue Sports - Pool Revolution.

Not one new game broke into the Top 20 this week and in truth there wasn't a lot of big movements on this week's charts other than Konami's Sandy Beach, which was this week's big climber jumping 7 spots to #5. The biggest dropper was Tiki Towers, which fell a paltry 2 spots to #11. Most of the other games moved only one spot if they moved at all. Not a terribly interesting Top 20 this week to be sure.
