We knew that Wii Sports Resort
was selling well
in Europe. Today, Nintendo told GamesIndustry.biz
well: over 600,000 copies in its two weeks of release, even more than have sold in North America
. That's not only good news for the game
, but also for the prospects for future MotionPlus use -- the more the game sells, the more of the Wii audience has the device, and the more likely developers are to support it.
Who knew that a sequel to a ridiculously popular game could also
be popular? Somebody should tell all the struggling publishers like EA and Activision about this.
