I believe Nintendo is correct that this game will have long legs, just like the New Super Mario Bros. series that started with the DS. Every one of those has generally sold continually well due to their 2D multiplayer friendly (sort of ) nature. Families and friends can play together. Super Mario 3D World is the first 3D Mario game to offer true co-operative/competitive multiplayer. That, and the fact that it's a much easier game for newbies and 3-Dimensionally challenged gamers, due to the more isometric perspective preventing players from getting lost or easily frustrated. Very clever, Nintendo. Give gamers the best of both types of Mario games. It should pay off.

I'm not trying to knock Info Scout or discount their numbers, but basing your info off of 3,000 shoppers and 83,000 receipts is not the same as getting the official numbers on units sold through. Info Scout tabulates this information from a couple of mobile apps that encourages shoppers to take pictures of their receipts. That may not tell us much of anything, ultimately. It could be that the majority of the shoppers who offered up their receipts and answered questions are tech-savvy adults who would more naturally fit into Microsoft's and Sony's main demographic, not Nintendo's. Then again, I'm tech savvy and I don't use either of the two Info Scout apps. Either way, it's best not to worry over these numbers as there is no way to tell if this is an accurate picture of the entire market.
