Not only has the game sold a million copies, but the Wii MotionPlus add-on has racked up a total of two million in sales in the U.S. alone.

"Millions of consumers worldwide have demonstrated that they want their summer vacations to keep going," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Wii Sports Resort provides both novice and veteran players a fun, virtual escape to a resort island with their friends and family — something that will be even more appealing as the weather turns cooler this fall and winter."

I threw up a little in my mouth when I saw this article. I do that every time I see something about a game with "Wii" in the front of its title (Play, Sports, Music), but this time is special because I was throwing up the last vestiges of my hope for humanity. Which is amazing, because I thought I'd already done that the LAST time I saw something about how much this miserable excuse for a tech demo was selling.

At least this abomination isn't being perpetrated by an organization I once loved and trusted because it's basically all that made my childhood bearable in between the beati- Oh wait no, NINTENDO Wii. Guess I might as well just go kill myself now.
