I'm not even going to bother with arguing numbers Stealth20k, because you'll just ignore them anyways. If Square Enix were truly expecting the performance of 3D to be what it was they wouldn't have 35% more copies than anyone wanted. It's better to have a smaller initial shipment with various small reshipments rather than a huge first shipment that stays on store shelves for months. If Square Enix were expecting this as a result of userbases one would have to question why they put such a top effort on an unproven platform. They could've launched the game alongside a PSP SKU, or just ported BBS to 3DS to mitigate any failure due to userbase. But I'm sure none of this will make a difference to you since it seems you're hardset in the "NO GAME CAN FAIL ON 3DS" mindset.
