No, the numbers even for just Japan were abysmal.
The European PlayStation®Store is a great service that offer some old Playstation and Playstation 2 games for sale, and let them be downloaded on the PS3. Quite nice and convenient, and Konami already offer a few titles there like the original Metal Gear Solid and the original Silent Hill.
But I wonder, why are so few Konami classics available on European PlayStation®Store? Suikoden, Suikoden II and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are not only among the best Playstation 1 games ever made, but among the best games of all time. For example, only 2 weeks ago Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was ranked as the 35th best game of all time at g4tv.

Not only that, but two of these three games are available on the North American PlayStation®Store and been there for several years now, why not here on the European PlayStation®Store too? I feel it's a huge mistake to not offer these 3 classics for sale. Especially as these 3 games are very wanted games and go for £100+ for used copies even though they now are over a decade old.
Also, a few months ago the European PlayStation®Store started to offer PS2 games, and I think this is a huge opportunity to introduce Suikoden III for the European gamers as it never had a proper retail release in Europe a decade ago when it was released in North America and Japan. And of course, it would also be nice to see Suikoden IV, Suikoden Tactics and Suikoden V on European PlayStation®Store too (I'm obviously quite the Suikoden fan).
I hope we can see some more activity from Konami regarding their classics when it comes to the European PlayStation®Store in the near future.
