Could this be one of the first games Published under Activision where the developers actually have some sense of freedom in the creative process? I really hope this game is not a flop, and not a 'really good' game. I hope it is an amazing game, like a Bioshock or Uncharted 2.

The gaming worlds eyes will be on Bungie when they have a complete reveal of this game, most likely at E3. I hope for their sake that they can succeed where others have failed. Bungie seem like a really down-to-earth developer, from the tours of their studio to their casual MP sessions with Naughty Dog.

I kinda lost my faith in Bungie after Halo: Reach, but I will reserve my judgment on their new IP until I see more about it.

And, one of the stipulation in their contract with Activision was the fact that they retain full ownership and control of their IPs. Acti can't touch them.

Uncharted 2 was actually a game?

There's always a critic...

Wait, What? You're not a journalist?

Oh yeah, just a troll.

Keep moving, nothing to see here!

Of course there is, just like people who are adamant talking about exclusives like Uncharted.

Do you find it ironic how an article talking about Bungie branching out to more platforms now retracts back to the discussion of exclusives like Uncharted 2? The discussion should be on Bungie, not promoting Naughty Dog because then that leads to attacks. Needless attacks most likely because Naughty Dog is an exclusive developer.

Some people on N4G just don't have to maturity to deal with exclusives. Which is why we have those who will question Uncharted 2 being a game or not when we all know it was one of the best games out there. Once a discussion gets sidetracked then the focus shifts away from what the original topic is about. We see it all the time and people use exclusives as some sort of leverage which is also childish. The best advice is to ignore the trolls and mark them and move on. Slowly they will get less power because they will get less abilities to talk and make comments. When you keep replying to them you are empowering them and giving them the attention they want. Some are persistent and just comment in more articles but I would just ignore them as well. There's only so much the community can do to prevent them from trolling or attacking others. You're not going to get anywhere by responding.

Bungie probably wants as many to enjoy their games as possible. I tend to agree with that philosophy. If companies like Sony want to have their own studios to promote the hardware that's fine but Activision is not one of those publishers. I can't see them investing in Bungie to limit who can buy the games they make.

Thier fuck if this game fails,Activision will fire them in a heart beat. But good luck.

If that were to happen, I wouldn't put it past Activision to harvest Bungie's organs, to recoup their losses.

Bungie could of went with anyone. Activision is so much worse than where they were a year ago.

What people had said was that to game is a timed exclusive, by about a year intact. I believe it actually still is.
