“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

VGC overshipped 3DS, but Nintendo ordered stores to send them back.

I don't think it will. With a strong Americas launch, I don't see the 3DS being above 3 million by the end of the month. If the game came packaged with a proper launch title (say Layton made it outside Japan) I think the console would have been better off.

3 million sounds about right, or at least somewhere in that neighborhood. Sellthrough should be about 2 million after next week and there would appear to be a fair bit of stock in the channel, at least in Europe. Plus the initial shipment to Australia would have already been accounted for (launched today). Of course you also need to consider that Nintendo's shipment numbers will be till March 31st but VGC's numbers will be till April 2nd (and 3rd in Japan).

True, but still. if it only makes 3 million on VGC, then it didn't make 4 million on an earlier date. However, it won't be long until it does sell 4 million. Definatly before the end of April, and for all we know it has shipped 4 million worldwide.
