The Globe and Mail predicts in its review of Wii Sports Resort that it will be the top selling game of the year. From the story:
The original Wii Sports has been bundled with each of the 51-million Wii consoles sold. That means this seemingly unassuming franchise has a built-in fan-base like no other this generation. Consequently, I suspect Wii Sports Resort will sell more than ten million units worldwide by Christmas, and come close to 20 million in its first year, making it a billion dollar game. Only a handful of films can claim the same.
It might sound like a bold prediction for such an unpretentious little title, but it suggests no more than that it will sell on pace with Nintendo's last peripheral-based release, Wii Fit. Make no mistake; Wii Sports Resort will be the best selling video game of 2009.
