According to reports, a while ago Reggie Fils-Aime of Nintendo revealed a real belief that the New Super Mario Bros. for Wii will outsell Modern Warfare 2 over the holiday season. However, as most people thought, this prediction is completely way off as Mario can't come close to MW 2 in terms of sales.
<blockquote>If you recall, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime stated last month that New Super Mario Bros. Wii will outsell Call of Duty
:Modern Warfare 2 over the holiday season. The first leg of the race is over and it's not looking so great for Mario.
The November 2009 NPD report reveals that Modern Warfare 2 sold 4.2 million copies in the month on the Xbox 360. New Super Marios Bros. Wii, meanwhile, racked up a little under 1.4 million. Fils-Aime claimed that Mario would overtake MW2 by the end of January. There's still a lot of time left but they've got a big hole to climb out of, here. </blockquote>
