Final fantasy games are never the same, story wise, character wise, and these days even gameplay wise. They switch it up pretty often and since it's the ps3 your talking about final fantasy XIII looks to be the most different from the others.
Your aguement has a certain weight to it but final fantasy is just a bad example.
And no I'm not an over-protective fanboy I've only ever played through 1 final fantasy game in my life.
Ok so FF wasn't the BEST example but still, after about a few of them it was just all too much alike. I know the gameplay and story and characters change each time but IMO it doesn't change enough.
Now games like GT and even GTA are getting old. The new GT adds a few cars and puts it in HD? How is that a new game? Forza 2 is going to blow it away it seems. GTA I have never liked, but it is quite a repatitive game, IMO. After playing a few hours it seemed like I would kill some people or steal some car, get chased by the cops, maybe kill a few of them, lay low for a bit so that they cops stop and repeat.
Yes, I am more inclined for the 360 even though I was once a hardcore PS fan. I really think Sony screwed over the PS2 by releasing videos that looked awesome but not gameplay and over-hyping their engine. For the PS2 it was the "emotion-engine" which was supposedly going to be amazing. Now it is the cell, which does look impressive but you must wonder just how great it is.
So far, partially because it is new to the world of gaming, the Xbox has not made all too many mistakes. Some marketting mistakes and such but they havn't just released videos to make it look amazing and have people pissed at them later.
