Blue Dragon won´t sell that much. It is not a FF type of game, more like a DQ game. FF sells very well in USA and Europe, DQ sells decently I would say 500k tops.

I don't understand this argument one bit. The FF game that put the series on the map in the United States and Europe was done in a similar art style to Blue Dragon.

Since Blue Dragon is created by the troika who created FF, I see no reason why this game would not be popular outside of Japan. Sakaguchi has zero ties to the DQ franchise, so these comparisons have even less basis.

The reason being that it isnt a franchise. The average gamer doesnt know about it nor do they know about Lair. Hell I am a gamer that scoures several gaming sites and I never knew about them until yesterday reading the forums here. It really has nothing to do with the "type" of game imho, it has to do with the fact that they are not really advertised through major media during prime times. No radio, major newpaper articles, or prime time tv ad's thus the average joe will never hear of them. However, FF is practically a household name in some countries. If you see a new one, you know what you are getting and that the quality will be at least ok. If joe shmo sees Blue Dragon he will probably think nothing of it because it is an unknown. Now... if the game is really good and gains attention with gamers after its release, that might change things but that kind of thinking in todays world of gaming is unwise... most of the time, regardless of a games budget and hype, you will be dissapointed. Id say we will not know anything until we finally see it.
