Can New Super Mario Bros. Wii Outsell Modern Warfare 2?

Kombo.com: Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime said on GameTrailers TV that he thinks the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. Wii can outsell the massively anticipated Modern Warfare 2 under certain circumstances. He said this while also giving respect to the competing game.

In an interview with GTTV host Geoff Keighly, Fils-Aime said that he thinks New Super Mario Bros. Wii can outsell a single SKU of Modern Warfare 2 by the end of January 2010. "On a single platform...absolutely," said Fils-Aime. "I say that unequivocally."

"You've got to give me the entire holiday selling season," said Fils-Aime. "Let's take it all the way through the January NPD data." This is probably taking into account the nature of the sales of Nintendo's successful first party games.

Of course it can. 360 fans like bragging about sales, but what they don't realize is the Wii's games sell a LOT more. Halo 3 is nothing compared to the Wii's best sellers.

The Halo franchise isn't in the top 35 highest selling franchises in the world, and none of the Halo games are in the top 25 highest sold games in the world.

Halo has a loooong way to go before it tops the Wii first party games (in terms of sales).

MW2 should sell good, but it won't top NSMBW by a long shot. Too many casuals will buy it.

u gotta know this generation is mostly about being online, so very likely ppl will b playin this game more than mario, n Mario will see more returned copies to game shops, games that are very much multiplayer will be played more than mario, trust me dude, Mario is more played on the NES, SNES and N64 than on the Wii!!!!

That Reggie guy is a jabroni. Does anyone remember his rant about the PSP Go? LOL Now look at what Nintendo are doing again, oh the irony. Releasing another DS with a bigger screen (not that big but you get my drift) I still own the original DS and a flash cart for pirating games :) As for both games, they look like rehash products.

its alright, he's just a guy who knows he likes to brainwash the kids market with mario, Zelda and Pokemon, I don't care if it sells more than call of duty, but I'm sure more people are gonna return those mario games while the call of duty ppl will still be playin MW2 for its replay value and lasting appeal!!!!

Mario might sell more, but it won't be played more than MW2, that's for sure!!!!

5 or 10 years from now there won't be one person playing MW2 and people will still speed run New Super Mario Bros. The dolphin emulator makes it extremely likely level editing and general hacking communities will pay attention to this game for years, particularly the Mario AI communities trying to expand their methods to controlling 4 players at once cooperatively.
