It's interesting that he said the first Yakuza, although it did well sales wise, still didn't make enough to cover costs (due to it being the first game they made for PS2). It reflects Shenmue in some ways. He then got told they needed to get the sequel out within a year of the first in order to keep the series' momentum going, which although difficult led to the game selling twice as much as the original. The Yakuza team have pretty much kept up that fast pace ever since. I wished they would slow down a little though, and maybe work on a new game between each Yakuza.
