Yep, First Bungie announcements then Sony's Live Presser 3 days later.

Will she be announcing the PS4? Otherwise we don't really care

(Kidding. Happy for you. Was just trying to be funny)
ABizzel1  +   647d ago
I don't really understand why they would do this before the PS4 announcement. The announcement of a new Big 3 console will overshadow the announcement of a new game regardless of what game it is.

My guess is Bungie may very well be at this PlayStation conference with a second showing of Destiny. If so that's a huge stealth troll by Sony in the only way a stealth troll can be good. MS did the same thing when previous 3rd party games that were exclusive to Sony, were being released on Xbox as well.

Bungie and MS go hand in hand simply due to the Halo franchise. Sony having Bungie show their newest game on PlayStation is a slap in the face.

It's like in 2006 - 2012 MS was stealing all of Sony's ex's.

But here if it happens, Sony just stole MS wife.

Or MS wants to troll Sony

Or Sony wants to troll everyone

8 Days Later.

LMAO at my disagrees.

Looks like I was right suckas.

This might mean it's a PS4 launch title!
Dread  +   647d ago
It probably wont, but we know it is timed exclusive.
Vegetom  +   647d ago
Or perhaps a move by Microsoft to steal some of Sony's momentum and announce it as a (timed) exclusive?
MmaFan-Qc  +   647d ago
isnt Bungie supposed to be released from the slavery contract Microsoft had?
Enemy  +   647d ago
@ MmaFan: They're under contract with Activision now, not Microsoft.
PFFT  +   647d ago
Nope, this game will be a timed exclusive for the Next Xbox. Bungie has confirmed this.
jmac53  +   647d ago
Microsoft has first rights of refusal for all Bungie products even if it is being published by Activision.
delboy  +   647d ago
NO, Destiny is for ps360 and xbox720.
hakis86  +   647d ago
Ohh, they should wait until after the 20th. Just worried that IF indeed the PS4 ++ is shown, that will make a lot of people forget about a game (for a while).
Maybe a week or two later would have been good.
Muffins1223  +   647d ago
For all we know the timed exclusive thing might not even happen,remember this contract we saw is several years old
GalacticEmpire  +   647d ago
Never understood why right after escaping Microsofts grip they would turn around and make their next game Xbox exclusive.

Apparently everyone is completely certain that the deal they made YEARS ago with Activision still includes this leaked requirement. They also have to get a 90+ score average and sell like 5 million copies in 6 months or something along those lines or Acti will terminate them, I mean their contract. All seems a bit ridiculous to me, but I guess Activision are great at making money so they know how to screw every last penny out of their slaves/devs.
Aceman18  +   647d ago
i remember hearing its 6mth timed period for microsoft first, but if this game has online mode i can patiently wait the 6mth to pick it up as i wont pay to play online.
MrBeatdown  +   647d ago
"Microsoft has first rights of refusal for all Bungie products even if it is being published by Activision."

Got a source for that? I Googled it, and all I could find was that MS gets the first crack at publishing rights, and that ship has long since sailed. And even then MS having the first shot at publishing rights wasn't 100% confirmed, and seems unlikely unless MS actually had the first shot and decided it wasn't worth publishing Bungie's next game.

"For all we know the timed exclusive thing might not even happen,remember this contract we saw is several years old"

Exactly. The contract doesn't set the final release plan in stone. It's an agreement to a minimum, so nobody is obligated to deliver beyond what they know they can, or want to. But it doesn't mean both sides can't agree to changes.

Just a few months ago, promo art was leaked that listed just 360 and PS3. Bungie confirmed it was real, which could point to both versions being released at the same time...

We've got some funny delusional fans here. Activision, the publisher, decides where the game is going. Bungie has no say as they signed a multiplatform contract with a multiplatform publisher. Deal with it.
TheGamerDood  +   647d ago
they know that no one is going to be talking about anything else after Sony announces their new hardware so...

8 days left kiddies, are you ready?

Any next gen games or systems shown are worth talking about. I'm looking forward to the 17th as much as the 20th. Its a new game that eventually will be played on PS4 and X8. I wish more game companies show off next gen games...
#1.3.1 (Edited 647d ago ) | Agree(6) | Disagree(1) | Report
This game will be made to appear only for xbox. You most likely see xbox logo. Bungie + cod publishers + MS = 2 year dlc delay for pc/ps4.

I am looking forward to playing this but as a playstation gamer I have a bad feeling about this game..

I really hope it's not aiming for that E10 -T rating that I've been hearing about.

As long as it's fun the rating doesn't matter!
DigitalSmoke  +   647d ago
Looking forward to this multi plat!
ayabrea93  +   647d ago
very intrigued by this game. can't wait
e-p-ayeaH  +   647d ago
Halo killer? it just might be.
Urusernamesucks  +   647d ago
Just stop with the[insert game here]killer, it doesnt realy matter.
e-p-ayeaH  +   647d ago
keep telling yourself that i want a better game than halo.
Commandar_Shepard  +   647d ago
Journey is a better game than Black Ops 2. That doesn't mean it's a "CoD Killer".

Anyway, I'm really excited for this. Bungie has created one of the biggest Franchises in Gaming History so everybody should be interested, especially since it will eventually make it to PC, PS3, and PS4 as well.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   647d ago
@ e-p-ayeaH

There is no better game then Halo.

I guess you will just have to stick it out with Wonderbook
Statix  +   647d ago
I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, or if you're really that stupid.
Sp1d3ynut  +   647d ago
Why? You've never even played a Halo game before.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   647d ago
I never understood why one game must "killer" another. People act like it's not possible for two quality titles to coexist. Reminds of the idiotic GTA vs Sleeping Dogs/Saints Row comments. It is definitely possible to like both games.
whoyouwit04  +   647d ago
you know it's funny after all these years people are still trying to find a halo killer.
ApolloTheBoss  +   647d ago
Witcher announcement. Destiny announcement. PS4 announcement. So much epicness packed into one month. What's Next?! >:)

Xbox announcement.

I am Destined to play this game.

Sorry, I could resist, but decided not to. ;)
dubt72  +   647d ago
Does anyone else find the timing of this announcement peculiar? Why announce what is more than likely a next-gen game before Sony's big reveal? The difference between announcing the Witcher 3 and this, is that it is known that Destiny will be a timed exclusive for Microsoft. Therefore any announcement regarding possible release date would be very telling regarding the Xbox Next and when it releases. Perhaps MS cooked up a little scheme with Bungie to steal some thunder by teasing the new system 3 days before Sony does? Curious...

Apologies, here's a brand new link. https://www.google.com/url?...

Makes sense this game will see current generation console. Xbox has a install base of 76M Activision wants this in many Xboxs as possible. So its understandable. It will hit PS3 and PS4 the following year(s).

I love seeing sony fanboys say i cant wait to see this come to ps4. Why? You all say halo sucks and killzone, resistence are way better. Why do you want a game from the dev who made it if halo was so bad?
Urusernamesucks  +   647d ago
If this was an nextbox exclusive,itll be a hole different reaction.
GABRIEL1030  +   647d ago
Ummm I like Halo series and I love the Killzone multiplayer... no complaints bro. just play great games in any platform..Please Bungie make a great game for PS4...
akaakaaka  +   647d ago
sadly i can see this game cashing a lot in over price micro transactions, dlcs and it will be the new evil thing in videos gaming and sadly i bet others games will fallow :/ and blind fanboys will bite on it..

not saying the game will be bad or good just saying what i can see what will happen (i hope i'm wrong).. there is big evilness behind this game in terms of new ways to make money in a wrong way..

momthemeatloaf  +   647d ago
I have a gut feeling Destiny is a Microsoft exclusive title and this is Microsofts counter to Sony's party on the 20th.
esemce  +   647d ago
That's my birthday, cheers bungie.
@momthemeatloaf probably timed exclusive.

This is gonna be a lot to take in next week.
RememberThe357  +   647d ago
I can't wait to see what they've got for us. Next-gen is coming and I can't wait for it to arrive.
