Wii Sports Resort to sell more than 10 million copies

Off to a slightly slower start than most thought, Wii Sports Resort is becoming a huge title for Nintendo going into the holiday season and is actually tracking better than WiiFit did in the same time period.

I wouldn't doubt it to sell over that much. Actually a very fun game, but I have a feeling New Super Mario Bros. will blow it out of the water this holiday.

Madusha5368d ago

Yup, a very good game. I wish this was given for free with my Wii instead of Wii Sports.

Does that make it better than Halo bots? According to your logic, it does.

I think the only thing better than halo is your m4m4! Really :)

I don't know. In reference to that kids games survey from earlier in the week, WSR was more popular/wanted than NSMBW.

WSR was high amongst both sexes, rating 1st or 2nd in almost all categories.



@ndpad, "The four most keenly desired titles across all ages and genders were Guitar Hero 5 (48 per cent), Wii Sports Resort (44 per cent), New Super Mario Bros Wii (41 per cent) and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (33 per cent)."

Are you implying there are more teenagers, than kids, who will get what they want for Christmas?

ndpad5368d ago (Edited 5368d ago )

Did you see the ages for NSMB?

Edit: Interesting and appreciated. Btw I was asking for the info because I had not seen that yet.

Because we all miss accidentally throwing our Wiimotes at the TV, so let's throw some Joy-Cons.

VR is the same way, wrist straps for a reason.

I loved the golf from Wii Sports Resort.

I was always confused by Nintendo’s decision to kill the franchise. “Super” stayed with Mario titles even after the Super Nintendo. They can still use the Wii name. Hell it’s been so long that releasing a new one, or even an HD remaster, will tap into that nostalgia market.

Super Mario launched on the NES not the Super NES.

septemberindecember911d ago

Super was never because of the Super Nintendo. Super Mario Bros launched on the NES. The Super is because it's an indirect sequel to Mario Bros.

They can just call it Nintendo Sports or something, but using the Wii name would be a bit confusing.

Bigman4k912d ago

Yeah i agree but i don't think Nintendo will be bringing wii sports to the Nintendo Switch samething goes for diddykong racing
