Super Smash Bros. Brawl: Wii Nintendo Channel Game Data: 100,000,000 Hours!

It's only been a few weeks since I posted up that Wii Sports had crossed 100 million hours of game-play hours reported on the Wii's Nintendo Channel.
Now, with today's Nintendo Channel game-play data updates, Super Smash Bros. Brawl has crossed 100,000,000 hours of game-play!

The Wii's Nintendo Channel Data for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, from November 16, 2009:

As the picture shows Super Smash Bros. Brawl has 100,278,406 reported total hours of game-play, making it only the second Wii game to cross 100 million hours of game-play reported on the Nintendo Channel, unless I've missed another one.
1,364,932 players have reported game play data for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, according to the data provided on the Nintendo Channel.
Approximately 617 days from Super Smash Bros. Brawl's release date of March 9, 2008, it crossed 100 million hours of game-play.
617 days is the equivalent of:
53,308,800 seconds
888,480 minutes
14,808 hours
88 weeks(rounded down) 
1 year, 8 months, 7 days excluding the end date.

While it took Super Smash Bros. Brawl 617 days to cross the 100 million hour mark, Wii Sports' data was captured 1079 days from it's release, showing it had crossed the 100 million hour mark.

Mrs. Coffee bought me Super Smash Bros. Brawl for as a wedding anniversary gift one yaer...I had never gotten into the Smash Bros. games before, and I still didn't even after receiving it as an anniversary gift.  I ended up trading the game in, in April or May of this year and put it towards The Conduit, with her knowledge of course!
I know friends that love the series and really enjoy it, and I think the game-play data for Super Smash Bros. Brawl shows that this type of Nintendo "fighting" game is played A LOT by people, and I'm wondering if Nintendo will in the near future try to bring the Smash Bros. series to the Nintendo DS/DSi handheld systems.

Do you own Super Smash Bros. Brawl?  If so, how many hours have you contributed to the game and it's 100 million hours of reported game-play?

For myself, you can see with the picture below how little I played the game from July of 2008, until April/May this year when I traded it in:

  1. did the math. comes out to be about 11,000 years. the end of the Pleistocene when wooly mammoths still walked the earth and humans were yet to fully colonize the mediteranian.

    Thanks for the comment! I did the math on it also, and I got 11,439 years of game-play!
    I'm not sure about the Pleistocene and wooly mammoths...the only thing I've got is Wooly Pugs, and they definitely won't last 11,000 years.
    BTW, how do they know when what animal lived and how long ago it lived?

  3. WOW!!! NICE!!! 100 milions hours played!!! INCREDIBLE!!

    Thanks for the comment. Yea, it's pretty incredible for SSBB to have crossed it so quickly, especially compared to Wii Sports which was released with the Wii.

  5. Cartoon violence = success. That's one reason Looney Toons was such a success. I was never interested in the Disney cartoons -- too much storyline. Throw in some Three Stooges slapstick and Acme products and you have success. As for 11,000 years ago, nothing good happened. That's when they say blonde hair debuted. Honestly, how can you know that? Especially with Adam not coming around until 4004 BC -- Friday, October 28 according to some.

  6. Excellent stats! I can't imagine playing that long. I have a blog called Smash Today, Smash Tomorrow, Smash Forever. You all may post news, stories, and other stuff to my blog. I could really use some traffic here.

    Thanks for the comment sir!
    Cartoon violence is a friendlier approach and parents concerned with the "blood/gore" in games today would probably be more likely to allow their child to play a game like Smash Bros. than they would Mortal Kombat.

    @Green Penelope Pitstop:
    Thanks for the comment.
    I commented on your blog, and saw you had added a few more, but when I tried to go to them today, it says "Blog has been removed". Are you doing a revamp of it?

  8. This is called video game addiction ;)
