From their financial presentation:

What a load of shit. Weak sales in NA and EU? Sounds like they're just scapegoating NA for the issues the JPN side of the company has been putting the entire company through. FFXIII Versus is a bottomless money pit. FF14 relaunch will bomb spectacularly, sub mmos are mostly dead and you can't relaunch a failed MMO and expect huge success. I would be amazed if it moved half as many units as the first release. Tomb Raider and Hitman performed really well for what they were, 3+m is nothing to sneeze at. Sleeping Dogs underperformed but that's to be expected for an IP reboot.

I'm pretty sure the "expected sales" figures were just that; expectations. Apparently the actual figures didn't meet those expectations. Not too surprising, considering how quickly Sleeping Dogs and Hitman dropped in price. I think Hitman went on sale for 50% off in less than a month after release.
