Thoughts:
     I have not played either WWE ’09 or WWE ’10, or the new WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 that just released.  I think the game-play hours reported for both games are really good though, especially the average hours per person reported play-time data.
     I think it’s going to be interesting to see if WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 debuts quickly on the Nintendo Channel with game-play hours reported, and how high it’s average goes in the next 6 months.
Questions:

     Have any of you played any of the WWE Smackdown vs Raw games?  If so, which game(s) have you played, and what did you think about it?  If you owned the Wii versions, do you know if your average hours reported were close to what is shown in the data above?
