Wii Sports Resort Sales Pass 500,000 In Japan

Nintendo's Wii Sports Resort is ensuring that Wii MotionPlus penetration is off to a good start in Japan, with the Wii game moving another 150,000 copies in its second week on the market.

That puts the Wii Sports sequel at more than a half million copies sold, according to Media Create, a feat sure to be made less impressive next week when Dragon Quest IX for the Nintendo DS lands in Japan. Debuting strongly beneath Wii Sports Resort is Sega's Hatsune Miku: Project Diva for the PSP, which outsells the recently released Mii-focused DS game Tomodachi Collection.

The only other new debuts were Sony's Boku no Natsuyasumi 4: Seitouchi Shounen Tanteidan, Boku to Himitsu no Chizu and EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis, the latter surely capitalizing on Wii MotionPlus fever.

And look! There's Infinite Space, back in the top ten. Guess my fears of the game's quickly dropping popularity were for nothing.
