I think the point we are missing here is that Yakuza 3 did more than its expectation in Japan, 

Uh, what were Y3's expectations in Japan?  

I m sure it wouldnt have been more than Yakuza & Yakuza 2 on PS2.. So Yakuza 3 is almost equal to Yakuza in LTD sales. and i think Yakuza 4 might do equal to the Yakuza 2

Well, I've heard Nagoshi say both Yakuza 3 and Kenzan made a profit (likely due to shared R&D across both games, I kind of doubt Kenzan could've been profitable on it's own), but I've never heard a thing about Y3 beating expectations.

Y3 isn't near Y1 (yet) either.  Famitsu series sales ltd...
