you know I'm just getting a little sick of this Nintendo is the only one with gimicks crapola. Okay so I'm pretty sure 1080p is a gimick to sell stuff. Playing a DVD on a gaming console is a gimick. Streaming stuff from a PC to your gaming machine is a gimick. Downloadable content is a gimick. Online store is a gimick. Hell a gaming machine itself is a gimick. Mario Party was all about this kind of stuff in the first place from what I understand, so it's hardly a downfall, if you liked the previous Mario Parties that is

Isn't it going to get a bit old, being the 8th in the series? I mean, FF can do it, but thats because every one of them is different(or should be). You can only do so much with one concept and one game type.

Nintendo is just " updating" the game with new mini games and gameplay features and FF was the same from 1 to 9 the only difference : story, just like mario party has its difference with minigames.
