Look, whenever I have the money for I'll get a PS4 and finally go through these, and I'm happy to see them brought over, but first I'm awaiting kinda breathless to see how well Yakuza 5 does so I know what to expect in terms of future releases :P
Don't expect too much from Yakuza 5 sales, considering it's a digital only game on a last-gen console, also it's the worst game to start at if you just started with the series. Yakuza 0 has more potential, as it'll be on PS4, have both a digital and retail release, and is a better starting point. It's still best to start with Yakuza 1, as there are references and such to later games, but you probably won't get confused by what's going on in it if it's your first Yakuza game.
Really though, the games don't have to be big successes to do well. If they did then Atlus, NIS America etc. wouldn't be in business. I imagine that Atlus now being a part of Sega also played a part in Yakuza 0 being localized.
