Mario Bros. Wii will outsell Modern Warfare 2 “on one particular platform,” Fils-Aime says

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is a confident fellow. A very confident fellow. Confident enough to put New Super Mario Bros. Wii up against Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2, aka the pre-order record setting, most anticipated game of the year and possibly the biggest entertainment launch of.. oh.. ever.

“Absolutely,” he said when asked on GTTV if Nintendo’s new multiplayer-oriented side-scroller is going to outsell Modern Warfare 2 on a single platform, meaning either on the PS3, 360 or PC. “… I do believe so.”

“… you’ve got to give me the entire holiday selling season. So let’s take it all the way through January NPD data … I’ll put that stake in the ground,” he said, later adding, “Modern Warfare [2] is a great title. As a gamer, I look forward to it … I think it’s going to be a fantastic title.”
