Usually we see SEGA and Nintendo working very well together, but it seems like SEGA doesn't have a lot of faith in their new fiscal year. For April 2012 to March 2013, SEGA plans to release 3 3DS titles and expects sales of around 380,000 units. Let's hope SEGA is just hiding some projects until E3.
@Mike_Intellivision They are also expecting the Miku game to sell most of the 600k units so they must not expect a lot from the vita sales and from my understanding Vita games cost a lot more to make than 3DS games so it's pretty stupid on SEGA's part
I wonder what the other two games are (seeing as one of them is Obviously Sonic All Star Racers 2)? I think the 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympics London will see a big boost once the Olympics hit.

Wheres the logic, i dont know
I'm pretty sure they're expecting 380k units sold, not monies received.
We're going to rack up some serious Nintendogs trainer points together! -Pit, from Kid Icarus: Uprising during the fight against Twinbellows.
Perhaps they have a few big projects on the way for 3DS that won't make it out in time for the new fiscal year? A Phantasy Star game maybe? I thought Phantasy Star 0 on the DS did OK. A bit optimistic I admit, but I don't think it's entirely out of the question.
Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games was their best-selling game, but not thanks to Sonic, really. I hope that once Rhythm Thief is released, things get better for Sega. Still, pretty stupid of them for expecting their PSV titles selling more than their 3DS offerings.
@Waluigi There is no business logic. This industry is not mature at all and is lead by childreen who just care in creating games for the 'most' powerful box of the year and not about making money (Shenmue says hello, and some still say it's Nintendo that never learn!). At the end, in 3 years SEGA is dead and some will wonder why!
Yeah I wonder how many of you would call out Sega on being naive if they supported Wii U before it pulled in sales in order to garner something of an install base
at any rate something tells me some of these games are going to be easy peasy console ports like tennis, so if that's the case I'm not too concerned. I'm more excited for that collab project then anything else I've seen from Sega lately anyway, so as a 3DS owner I can't really complain
