Well I disagree, weve seen new franchises this year like mirror edge and dead space, and last year we had resistance and uncharted so I think not everything is a sequel and the sequels some are very good. On 360 we also had new franchises and the wii is "interactive" enough for now.
I did say this on another post earlier but the next generation is by far the best and consoles have come a long way, compare your ps3 and 360 with your xbox1 or ps2 dashboards, the ps2 could only play dvds and copy save files, and the xbox too nothing more than that. The next generation even the wii have even web browsers on em and chats and video playback, news and when someone says something like the next generation is the same I really dont understand
Check out the integration and the evolution of the consoles on this gen and you tell me if you are disappointed I cant wait to see what next generation will bring to the table.
