No if you read Bungie pretty much confirms its real, they even revealed an extra bit of concept art on their site.

The story and art concept look amazing , hope it takes advantage of the gtx680.
Septic  +   1172d ago
The concept art looks amazing. It looks like a cross between Halo and Star Wars. The story already looks like amazing sci fi fare:

Last city on Earth. Why?
Alien Protectors
First contact?

I always love the whole premise behind first contact with aliens. Like in the original Halo, there was this sense of awe- what are these aliens? They look so unique with weird commanders and little funny grunts running around. Why is there a ring shaped planet? Imagine having that plus the back story on Earth itself.

Imagine if this is an MMO. Experiencing that world with your mates. The story I assume will gradually develop to introduce new races and we might have a Mass Effect type scenario where humans try to work their way into a sort of community of different alien species.

I wish this was cross platform. It's really about time we bridged the gap with gamers. The divide is superficial in such a technologically collected world.

Remember my promise. I GUARANTEE you- there will be space breasts. They might not be blue, but they will be there.

To me it looks like a mixture of Halo and Star Wars. Which is pretty awesome!

#Just read your comment Septic :D
I guess I'm not the only one thinking its a mix of Halo and Star Wars

This game has a Star Wars look to it.
TryMe  +   1172d ago
If they manage to make this game a fuse of star wars battle front, with big large scale battles on a epic scale, and a good narrative wrapped around it like halo than I will just die from gaming nirvana.

At first, I hated the concept of this being a mmo. But if it's a MMO lite, than I think i can live with it..barring no monthly subscriptions.
Kennytaur  +   1172d ago
No, we should not hope for another Fuse! :-P

It sounds like an MMO in the sense of Planetside 2. Planetside 2 just feels like Battilefield with a map that is 16x the size of the largest battlefield map and has at most 2,000 players on one battlefield. I was impressed as hell with it. Even the graphics shares similar things that frostbite 2 and cryengine 3 have like realtime GI.

Anyways, Destiny sounds like Planetside 2 but with more freedom to change to other areas (planets) since you are exploring together in a skyrim way.

I actually am super excited except for the fact that activision has a contract with them. I just don't want any bad influences to come through like limiting gameplay to the lowest common denominator (X360/PS3) and having X720/PS3 and especially PC be held back/not fully utilized.

Why? The game is being built for PC and 360 first and then ported over to the PS3 a year later or so.

The logo art that was leaked has the PS3 and 360 logo.
MrBeatdown  +   1172d ago
And you're basing that off a contract signed two and a half years ago.

I'm pretty sure both Bungie and Activision would be open to a simultaneous launch on both platforms. It's clearly intended to be multiplatform, so it makes sense to make it multiplatform from the start.

Being a Microsoft-only studio for years, it makes sense that Bungie would cover their ass, and not contractually obligate themselves to release a game on a platform they were unfamiliar with, especially on day one. But if they found a simultaneous release to be doable, I doubt Bobby Kotick is going to have a cow if it is on PS3 from the start. I'd expect Activision would be thrilled with the opportunity to help Bungie accomplish that.

Two years ago some folks didn't suspect next generation consoles either.

I say primary platforms will be PC, PS4, XB3. Why PS4 version in 2014? Maybe PS4 doesn't launch until Mid 2014. While XB3 and PC get a version in 2013 at XB3 launch window. :)

VGA premiere or E3 showing should set it up for its real and final platform choices. I suspect Activision will be running non-stop to put it on every platform they can and beg Bungie to use the same game engine for 10 years, but I hope Bungie keeps up with tech and pushes forward the right way. :)

I am pretty happy because that means that i will be able to play a game from Bungie without owning a 360.

Some people can´t accept that. This also reminds me of how people reacted when Metal Gear Solid Ground Zero and Rising were announced (which was already confirmed to be superior on the PS3 by the devs themselves so im not complaining) for the 360.

What the hell are you talking about? Who is making a big deal that this game might come to Playstation? Creating false equivalence that is reaching to sooth your shame of Metal Gear games is silly.

You speak of owning a 360 like disease and pretending to be able to finally play a Bungie game is comical. PS3 fanboys have bashed Bungie games. If you felt like this alk you had to do is buy a 360.

If it comes to PS3/4 it will be years later designed for PC and Xbox hardware.

"Who is making a big deal that this game might come to Playstation?"

What? That's not even what Cornholio was talking about. Let's look at what he WAS talking about..

"i will be able to play a game from Bungie without owning a 360.

Some people can´t accept that."

And it's true. Just look at your own comment.

"IF it comes to PS3/4 it will be YEARS later designed for PC and Xbox hardware."

*Goes to article*
*Looks at image*
*Sees obvious PS3 logo*

It's not an "IF", it's a "when". Which brings me to my next point. You say it will be YEARS, but Bungie is contractually obligated to have it done a year after its 360 release, if they chose to do it.

So even after Bungie acknowledges the leak is legitimate, basically confirming it's going to be on PS3, you still act like it's a maybe, act like it's several years away, even though we have known for months that that isn't true, and you flat out assume it's not designed with PS3 in mind.

So yeah, I'm thinking he has a point.

Although it likely won't happen cuz microsoft owns halo, but would be awesome if HALO and DESTINY were connected somehow. Not in terms of gameplay or anything that would restrict it but maybe as a part of the hugeeee halo universe.

In halo, humans existed 100,000s of years before present time and were technologically superior. They didn't even know forerunners till later when they were de-evolved.

It would be cool if these were those humans in like 110,000 BC on a different planet having a war among themselves. And i mean if it's only related to halo in concept it's not infringing on anything.
liquidhalos  +   1172d ago

bubblebeam  +   1172d ago
Well around the time after Reach, the whole Bungie/Halo website ( had massive posters hiring PS3 devs.

They also said that they want the game to be very immersive, taking full advantage of the CPU (so, possibly PS3 version excels at that part). They wanted snow, and leaves to drop on the ground, and still be on the ground instead of disappearing straight away etc.
sazzrah  +   1171d ago
That's promising. I am not the kind of PS3 fan who lauds it up over X360 fans when traditionally X360 exclusive devs or franchises migrate to my console of choice, but I have to say, I am quite pleased about this. In the same way I am pleased thatgamecompany seems to be heading for multiplatform in the future - I still find it tragic so many gamers have missed out on the brilliance of Journey, so I think it equally a shame that so many miss out on Bungie's obvious talents.

Looking forward to it! Here's hoping they hired decent PS3 devs tho - as much as I love my Sony box of joy, it does get tiresome having to wait to hear if a game you are looking forward to got graphically shafted in the development/porting process or not. I hope Bungie is more committed to console parity than some other devs I could mention.
bubblebeam  +   1171d ago

"traditionally X360 exclusive devs or franchises migrate to my console of choice"

Yes, it is excellent. Insomniac going to 360 is great also. Hopefully they both show the other console gamers a good time.

I'm so excited for this game! I'm ready to see what Bungie has in store for us. It looks amazing so far.
bubblebeam  +   1172d ago
I'm also very excited.

I'm not sure if it is an MMO like the rumours would have us believe (at least originally), as the releases are 2013,2015,2017,2019, with DLC one year after each release.

I think it might be a borderlands type of game, as they are creating large spaces, plus it's 'social at its core', which might mean a Borderlands with a higher player count.

Either way, colour me excited.
Monkeycan8  +   1172d ago

AngelicIceDiamond  +   1172d ago
Based on the concepts, story arch and the world you can tell this is gonna be a MMO based on the sorta gameplay (IGN mentioned) and giant world Bungies making for us.

Definitely real, long standing game franchises sounds pretty much like Bungie. Thanks to Halo, its evident they make Ips that are truly memorable and make games that people want to play from years on end.

Bungie just doesn't make a game, they make THE game.

Can't wait for Destiny so excited

The Activision connection pretty much dooms the game. They have ruined everything they touch.

No FPS to date is anywhere near perfect either, so people should keep making them. There isn't really any such thing as perfect for a creative product anyway.

I believe Bungie are developing it MS's console (whether this or next gen) - and Activision have the right to find another studio to port/recode it for other platforms. That's going on the Bungie/Activision contract details that were leaked during the Epic/Silicon Knights lawsuit.

While Bungie are a big studio - they'e not Rockstar "we're big enough to develop GTA independently on 2 different consoles simultaneously with 2 massive teams" big.

OT - That sounds epic. Great concept. I'd had an inkling (after Reach) that it might be a revival of Wing Commander/Privateer/Elite sci fi space combat - looks like I wasn't even half right!

the first installment will be on ps3/360, anything after 2013 will be on next gen, if you read you will see they are releasing installments in 2014,2015,2016,etc.
bozebo  +   1172d ago
They can take in-engine screenshots from any platform for promotional material; i.e. if it runs on PC they can use PC screenshots (even if the game won't release on PC). They can't use those same screenshots in advertising material for the game on other platforms though (without probably getting fined over it in various countries). Anyway, they could also just take 1 frame from the game running at about 5fps on a 360/PS3 with the graphics settings up high.

Like pretty much every console game (especially multiplats) released recently, it will look worse on your TV than in promotional material - that's just the standard for marketing now.

Also, the engine will no doubt also be built for next-gen machines (aka Linux/PC with a few little tweaks)

According to that terrible contract leaked a while ago, Bungie are going to burn PS3 gamers when this game releases by having it release a year later than Xbox. If this is still the case, then it is a horrible move which I'm sure the industry won't benefit from.

Not really. They were let of the Microsoft leash, only to find out that with Activision they are on a chain, with a shock-collar.

It would be nice if Activision used some of that money generated from cash cows like WoW and CoD to make a ground up engine, but I doubt it.
