Castlevania isn't doing that bad I think. Look at the whole franchise. It never had that much sales. Or am I totally wrong? If it reaches one million, it is one of the better Castlevanias (sales wise).
The only CV to ever sell a million was COTM on GBA. Even SOTN on PS1, and none of the 8/16bit games managed a million sales over their lifetimes.
That said, the budget for LOS could very well be more than the budget for all the 2D CV games ever, combined. 1.25m for a HD multiplatform game that was in development for 3-4 years, that had a big promotional campaign, that had a PS3 hardware bundle, that had extensive celebrity voice work, that had the involvement of Hideo Kojima... that's not exactly what I'd call "good".
