The Battle of the Bands Rhythm Games: Nintendo Channel Data

(click picture to enlarge)

Guitar Hero 5 and The Beatles: Rock Band were both released in September of this year.  Guitar Hero 5 was released eight days before The Beatles: Rock Band, which is why I found it interesting The Beatles: Rock Band has accumulated more total game play hours than Guitar Hero 5.
Looking at the Nintendo Channel data, it looks like The Beatles: Rock Band also has more people having game play data reported/recorded by the Nintendo Channel, than does Guitar Hero 5.

Quick math:
Guitar Hero 5 shows 43,900 total times played, with a total of 6.56 times per person.
The Beatles: Rock Band shows 48,745 total times played, with a total of 6.4 times per person.

Based off those numbers:
The Beatles: Rock Band has 7,616 people reporting game play data.
Guitar Hero 5 only has 6,692 people reporting their game play data.

Again, I'm surprised to know The Beatles: Rock Band has accumulated more game play hours and has almost 1,000 more people reporting data, than Guitar Hero 5.

Have you picked up either Guitar Hero 5 and/or The Beatles: Rock Band, if so, what do you think of the games?
