I played FFVII through to IX on my PS1 (which I've still got, and after 7 years, still works fine) and sort of enjoyed it. I then realised how easy they were and any game that makes the player have to set challenges for themselves because it's just too easy is flawed (imo). That's not to say I didn't enjoy the semi-predictable plot and outlandish villains (Ultimecia...Dues Ex Machina anyone?).
Anyway, my main point is that PS3 is not good value for money. Yes, it has better graphics and processing power, but really, they're almost trying to compete with a PC - and it can't. It doesn't really have much to offer me that a PC cannot, except a few exclusive games that I don't much care for except for Final Fantasy, but to be honest they are a bit of a grind-fest and I hardly ever get any replay value out of them.
I find them too repetetive for a single player game, and need more fun side quests like the Triple Traid card game and Chocobo racing
While at least giving more challenge through random encounters and puzzles but without making them *frustrating* (Pandemonium!)
Now the Wii looks much more viable. I don't need a 6th DVD player, so they got that sorted and made it cheaper for me. That remote looks like a lot of fun, and really shows off what consoles are all about: Playing with your mates/friends who don't necessarily have as much time to play demanding PC online games and being highly competetive for some good old fun
On topic, FFXII looks pretty good. The license board and gambit system doesn't appeal to me at all though. Keep to the formula SqaureSoft! (*Shudders when thinks of junction system and Tetra Master*)
That being said, I look forward to seeing Sony's marketing strategies and success in the near future.
