Wii Sports Resort is selling well, and Big N wants to shout all about it in this new press release.
According to internal tracking figures at Nintendo, sales of the Wii Sports Resort game have surpassed 1 million copies in the United States since its July 26th launch. Japan and Europe have also sold more than 1 million copies each since the title launched in their respective markets. The collection of 12 resort-themed sports activities is on its way to becoming another Nintendo "long-tail" title that sells steadily over an extended period of time as opposed to a single flash on its launch day.
Cammie Dunaway: "Millions of consumers worldwide have demonstrated that they want their summer vacations to keep going. Wii Sports Resort provides both novice and veteran players a fun, virtual escape to a resort island with their friends and family ? something that will be even more appealing as the weather turns cooler this fall and winter."
Wii Sports Resort includes archery, swordplay, table tennis, basketball, golf, bowling, air sports, power cruising, frisbee, cycling, canoeing and wakeboarding. The game sells at a suggested retail price of $49.99 USD and comes bundled with a Wii MotionPlus accessory, which brings exacting precision to games that have been designed to use it.
Nintendo's internal sales figures also show that more than 2 million Wii MotionPlus accessories are now in the hands of consumers in the United States. That includes those bundled with Wii Sports Resort and Electronic Arts' Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, as well as those sold separately at a suggested retail price of $19.99 each.
There you have it.
