Sales would surge more if the 3DS had more unique titles. These ports give it a better library, but do nothing to increase the uniqueness of the library.

Conversely, Nintendo could (once again) increase sales by ignoring core gamers and focus more on the 3D and augmented reality stuff. I inadvertently convinced a number of people to buy 3DS' after showing 'em the AR games. Casual gamers think stuff like that is REALLY cool.
