Again, as I originally said, they're happy with the Japanese product sales. I'm going to guess that a 20K showing is barely enough to recoup development costs in North America, which could bode extremely badly for any sequels in the series or any new games in the franchise, if any.
I'm more concerned about how this will equate if they ever make a sequel. As it has about the same sales as Suikoden V on a completely new system (meaning any fans they've alienated were only matched on a 1:1 ratio with new buyers), the next game will be very telling as to the fate of the series and ultimately of the franchise itself.
