[Q] 
  
Can a exclusive game on Nintendo Wii rake in more sales than a hugely popular game which features on three different platforms?.

Why should anyone care?

Overall, after a couple years: Oh probably. We all know the lasting power Mario games have had, this generation in particular.

No.

Wasn't there another thread like this? Meh. I'd say no considering the reception MW2 has recieved. I however, plan on buying this first way before I buy MW2.

At least two other threads about it.  2
 
The Reggie bet was that NSMB Wii would outsell MW2 (360 version only) in the US between release and Jan, which ain't gonna happen.  Long term and worldwide NSMB was a better chance.

I would think New Super Mario Brothers Wii wouldn't sell even half of what MW2 will sell over the year.

You know what, in time I think so, Yes.
 
Mario is a more long lasting game than Modern Warfare 2. Sure MW2 is going to be exceptionally popular now, but come 6 Months, maybe the tables will turn.

I can maybe see it selling more then MW2 on one platform but, not beating it with overall sales from each platform combined.

Continue the discussion in either one of those topics for now, I'll decide on if one of those needs locking or not later. Both do similar if but lightly different things. For the time being though this topic gets a lock as requested by the OP.
