Wii Sports Resort, the first true video game blockbuster of the year, recently reached platinum status with one million units sold in America.
The game, whose marketing was featured extensively in our exclusive feature a few weeks ago, also reached the one million mark in both the European and Japanese territories, and shows no signs of slowing down. Wii Motion Plus accessory sales has also reached the two million mark in the United States, and continues to be the number-one product in Amazon s video game store.
“Millions of consumers worldwide have demonstrated that they want their summer vacations to keep going,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “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.”
