New Super Mario Bros. Wii “off to a good start”

We may not yet know how Fils-Aime’s prediction of New Super Mario Bros. Wii outselling Modern Warfare 2 on one particular platform will turn out but, according to Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian who met with Nintendo yesterday, after three days at retail, the game is “off to a good start.”

There’s probably no competition to speak of if early sales are to be looked at, with Modern Warfare 2 breaking every record in the book and all, but with Fils-Aime questioning the game’s ability to sustain those sales, seeing how things look after January NPD data arrives, which is what he’s set as the finish line, should be interesting.
