The Wii Sports formula -- accessible sports-based minigames -- has worked once again. Hudson sent out a press release announcing that 700,000 copies of Deca Sports have shipped worldwide. Just imagine how much business the company would have done if they had kept the ridiculous Sporta name around the world? Probably a bit less, actually.

Hudson, naturally pleased by this development, announced that they are committed to creating more hit franchises like Deca Sports, which probably means that they're going to hang around on Nintendo consoles. We expect Deca Sports to continue doing good business, as exactly the kind of "evergreen" game that Nintendo loves.
