Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime believes that New Super Mario Bros. Wii will outsell either the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 version of Modern Warfare 2.

Asked by GTTV whether Mario's latest could best Infinity Ward's FPS, Fils-Aime at first said, "Well, Modern Warfare 2's on two platforms, right?" When host Geoff Keighley asked whether it would beat one of the two console SKUs, he replied, "So, absolutely. I say unequivocally."

"On one particular platform? I do believe so."

"Now, you've got to give me the entire holiday selling season, right, so let's take it all the way through the January NPD data," he clarified. "Yes. I'll take that... I'll put that stake in the ground."

Fils-Aime isn't taking the challenge lightly, nor does he thinks Modern Warfare 2 will be anything less than excellent. "Sure it's going to be close," he said. "Modern Warfare's a great title. As a gamer, I look forward to it."
