Your example with FMA:B is not really within the context here. Square Enix is part of the production of the anime -and- publisher of the manga, so it is obvious it will benefit them in both sides.

Also, please remember we are talking about VN adaptation. In such case, the fact people are interested by the VN as result doesn't benefit directly the studio behind the anime adaptation.
For all they care, the sales of the blu ray and DVD are much more important than the sales of the VN, especially there is no real way to figure if the adaptation is actually effective for the sales of the VN
You never see -any- ad about the original game in any website of the anime adaptation ever. At most, you have the mandatory game studio link.

Unless there are obvious evidences of VN sales spike due to anime adaptation, I don't see the relevancy of the argument.
