Wii Sports Resort sells a million in Japan

It's only been out there for two months.

A million copies of Wii Sports Resort have now been sold in Japan.

That's especially impressive when you consider the game has only been out there since 25th June. Data trackers Media Create reported it took just two weeks for WSR to hit the half-million mark.

Wii Sports Resort has also been a hit in Europe. As reported by good old GamesIndustry.biz a few weeks ago, 600,000 copies were sold within a fortnight of release - making it the fourth biggest-selling Wii title to date.
