Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has told Edge that he thinks MotionPlus could sell as many as 10 million units this year.

“I think around 20 percent of Wii owners in the US and Europe will have bought Wii Sports Resort, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 or EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis,” which will come bundled with the Wii Remote add-on, “so that’s around eight million,” he said.

“I think another two million will buy MotionPlus with new consoles.

“I expect MotionPlus to be a sneaky success (like Wii Fit), and ultimately attach to at least one third of the [Wii’s] installed base,” he added.

MotionPlus releases in June. Full thing through there.
