Preliminary sales numbers show Wii Sports Resort is a huge hit

Wii Sports Resort has already sold nearly 1.5 million copies worldwide and like Wii Fit, Wii Play and Mario Kart Wii is expected to be a strong seller for the remainder of the year.

When comparing Wii Sports Resort to previous Wii openings, the title is only beaten by Super Smash Bros Brawl, Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit. With Wii Sports Resort releasing on Sunday in America, “week one” will be a whole seven days which we are estimating from the strong day one sales (~300,000) to be around the 700,000. The ten largest debuts for Wii titles are shown below.
