Have you not heard of Madden?

Wikipedia wrote:As of 2010 Electronic Arts has sold more than 85 million copies of Madden NFL, and as many as two million in one week, for more than $3 billion in total sales.


They've released the same game ~30 times and are still doing great.

Wow, that example totally negates my entire argument.

I'd point out Call of Duty but ever since they introduced that new revolutionary Dog model I don't know anymore...

Many sports franchises do that Madden isn't alone in that respect. However, I think you have to look at sports games as a special case. Many sports gamers will buy a "new" version for updated rosters.
