All Call of Duty Games Play-Time Data for Wii

August 16, 2010

Quick Brew Info:
     The Call of Duty series, on the Wii, started with the Wii launch and Call of Duty 3.  All of the Call of Duty games on the Wii have been developed by Treyarch, even Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex; which was a port of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

     Do Wii owners enjoy the Call of Duty games?  Let’s take a look!

Approx. Number of Players Reporting Data:
     Call of Duty 3 has 271,237 players reporting play-time data, since it released in November 2006.
     Call of Duty: World at War has 211,013 players reporting play-time data, since the game released in November 2008.
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex has 81,438 players reporting play-time data, since it released in November 2009.

“Total” Game-Play & Average Hours Played Reported:
     Call of Duty 3 has 3,598,861 Total Hours reported, with 13 Hours 16 Minutes averaged per person reporting data.  The average play-time per person, per play session, is about 1 Hour 29 minutes.
     Call of Duty: World at War has 10,764,662 Total Hours reported, with 51 hours 1 Minute averaged per person/console reporting data.  The average play-time per person, per gaming session, is about 2 Hours 9 minutes.
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex has 4,409,356 Total Hours reported, with 54 Hours 8 Minutes averaged per player reporting data.  Its average play-time per gaming session is about 2 Hours 22 minutes.

Sale Rank & Advertised Price:
     Call of Duty 3’s Amazon.com sale rank is #1,473, and the current advertised listed price is $69.00.
     Call of Duty: World at War’s Amazon.com sale rank is #730, and its selling for $29.26.
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex’s Amazon.com sale rank is #483, and is selling for $40.54.

Review Score Averages:
     The image above in the article shows the GameRankings.com review score averages for each game, and the number of “professional” reviews associated with each game.

Here is what each game looks like from Amazon.com customer reviews:

Click picture to enlarge for Amazon.com review scores breakdown

     Call of Duty 3 has a 3.5 out of 5 Star rating, based on 71 customer reviews.

     Call of Duty World at War has a 4 out of 5 Star rating, based on 90 customer reviews.
     Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex has a 4.5 out of 5 Star rating, based on 63 customer reviews.
Thoughts:
     I think it’s interesting that Call of Duty 3 has 60,224 more players reporting play-time data, than Call of Duty: World at War.  I really thought Call of Duty: World at War would have more players reporting data, because of its online multi-player.  I guess the two year head-start of Call of Duty 3 is the main reason it’s still leading.
     On Friday, I posted the article, “What Is the Most Played FPS Game on the Wii?” I reported that Call of Duty: World at War is currently the most played FPS Wii game, according to “total game-play hours reported, not just the average hours per person/console.”
     A reader, WesFX, asked in the comments section of the article, “So does the trophy for most hours played per individual go to a different game?”
     While Call of Duty: World at War is the Wii’s most played FPS according to “Total” game-play hours reported; the trophy for most hours played per individual goes to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex.  As the data picture shows and I stated above, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex has an average of 54 Hours 8 Minutes per player reporting data, about 3 hours higher than Call of Duty: World at War’s average.

     I think the play-time data for the Call of Duty Wii games clearly shows Wii owners enjoy the online aspect of the games; especially when considering Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex passed Call of Duty 3’s “total hours” reported, only a few months after it released this past November.

Questions:
     Have you played any of the Call of Duty Wii games?  If so, are your average hours per game close to what is being reported?

Conduit 2, Release Date Confirmed?

April 10, 2010
(click image to enlarge)
Thoughts:
If you click the image above, you will see that both Amazon.com and GameStop.com have Conduit 2 now with a release date of November 2, 2010.
I know many times companies like Game Stop and Amazon.com will use placeholder release dates, but this date does fall on a Tuesday, which is often the day new games are released.
The date, November 2, 2010, also goes along with the “Fall 2010” target release mentioned in Sega’s press release, when they announced Conduit 2.
If November 2, 2010, is the release date, I think it’s going to be very interesting seeing how Conduit 2 performs, if Treyarch/Activision release another Call of Duty Wii game this fall in November.
Call of Duty 3 was released on November 21, 2006.
Call of Duty: World at War was released on November 11, 2008.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex was released on November 10, 2009.
Questions:
Do you think November 2, 2010, will end up being the release date for Conduit 2?
If so, and another Call of Duty game is released on the Wii this November as well, do you plan on buying both games, or just one?
If just one, which game do you plan on buying, Conduit 2 or the next Call of Duty?

As for myself, I do want to hear more details about Conduit 2, mainly on the multiplayer and hearing confirmation the spawn bug isn’t present, that was present in The Conduit.  If Treyarch is developing the next Call of Duty Wii game, I’m already leaning towards Call of Duty, because of Treyarch’s past two Wii Call of Duty games.
I am assuming another Call of Duty game will be released on the Wii this, though one hasn’t been officially announced yet.

Wii’s Release Games, Three Years in the Making: Legend of Zelda, Excite Truck, Need for Speed, and Call of Duty

November 19, 2009
Three years ago today, on November 19, 2006, Nintendo released the Wii.  Since the Wii’s release, Nintendo has done several updates to the system, and one of the updates was the Nintendo Channel.  I’ve been posting the data for several games off the Nintendo Channel for several months now.  Today, I’ll be showing games that were released with or very close to the release of the Wii, and how those games have performed over the last three years.
Wii’s Nintendo Channel Data for:
  The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Excite Truck, Call of Duty 3, and Need for Speed Carbon
(click photo to enlarge)
Numbers:
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has had 932,842 players reporting game-play data.
Excite Truck has had 171,500 players reporting game-play data on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel.
Call of Duty 3 has had 220,751 players report game-play.
Need for Speed Carbon has had 144,593 players report game-play data in nearly the last three years since the Wii’s release.
Thoughts:
These were the only four games, other than Wii Sports, that I saw with game-play data showing on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel.  I was very surprised to not see Red Steel and Rayman Raving Rabbids showing data, as I’m curious to know how Red Steel and Rayman Raving Rabbids did game-play wise.
Questions:
What was the first Wii game(s) you purchased with your Wii?  Looking back, how do you think that game(s) would play now, if you haven’t played them in a while?
What were you playing three years ago, today?

So, how has Wii Sports done compared to these other games.  I know I posted some numbers for Wii Sports about two weeks ago, but you can have another look at the updated numbers for this week!

Wii’s Nintendo Channel Data for Wii Sports!

Numbers:
Wii Sports has had 2,790,530 players report game-play data on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel since it released three years ago.
Wii Sports is also currently the most played Wii game as of Total Hours reported played.
*It should be noted, that the data collected off the Nintendo Channel, is not updated on a daily basis, it is updated on a weekly basis.  The game-play shown, would probably be from Nov. 19, 2006, probably through Nov. 15, 2009.
