After seeing what Activision and IW have been doing recently, I hope it does outsell MW2. Not that it really matters.

Either way, it will be a bad thing. If MW2 sells more, then it gives Activision all the more reason to sell the same game year after year. If NSMB Wii sell more, then it gives more reason for Nintendo to sell Mario for youngsters. Hopefully both won't sell at all.

Hm. The thing about New Super Mario Bros. Wii is that it's going to have tremendously long legs. We'll have to see what happens.

That's the thing...MW2 will launch HUGE.

NSMB will sell more consistently for a longer period of time. I have no doubt it will end up selling more than COD. But it's probably going to take awhile to catch up.

im actually rooting for nintendo, i haven't done this since the gamecube was out?

Valay3271d ago

I might be missing something since I haven't been keeping tabs on Modern Warfare 2 a ton, but what's up with that game? After reading your comment (and buckethead), it seems like people aren't rooting for it or something. I could be wrong, but I'm just confused a bit.

Infinity Ward (the developer of Modern Warfare 2) has alienated a lot of fans by choosing not to support dedicated servers for PC gamers, as well as the obvious price raise on the PC platform. They have also released a video endorsing a homosexual slur (the Fight Against Grenade Spamming one) and have numerously hated on other games in all different genres. They're just being all-around aholes to their supposed fan base.

Nintendo are starting to be a little c*cky.

Why can Reggie make c*cky statements and get away with it when people from MS, Sony and almost every game delopers get jumped on by everybody when they do the same?

@unrealgamer - Thanks! That explains things.

I'm rooting for BF:BC2 over MW2 in the fps battle.

slave2Dcontroller3271d ago

Thats a bold statement Reggie! I will be buying NSMB and the GOW collection instead of MW2 but I dont think either stand a chance of outselling MW2

2. Its PS3/PC/360
3. ITS MW!!

The thing is that Reggie is making this prediction based on a few months of sales. I expect that Modern Warfare 2 will sell a lot initially, but will it have long legs like New Super Mario Bros. Wii?
