[quote=“Edge”]The M-rated grindhouse film-inspired gore fest House of the Dead: Overkill has managed to make a modest bit of headway on the typically family-friendly Wii.
The light gun game from Sega and U.K.-based Headstrong Games sold 45K units during the month of February, NPD told Edge. The game launched February 10.
NPD analyst Anita Frazier said it landed around the 50th spot in the top-100 SKUs for the month in unit sales.
Sega’s lineup of M-rated Wii games includes House of the Dead: Overkill, Platinum Games’ MadWorld (launched in March) and June’s The Conduit, from High Voltage Software.
Sega of America has said that developers are missing an opportunity to cater to the hardcore gamers that have bought Wii, a console that Nintendo positions as typically family-friendly.
House of the Dead: Overkill recently earned a rather dubious honor from Guinness World Records as the “Most Profane Game.”[/quote]
