Why Destiny's reveal was underwhelming

Original-Gamer.com: Sunday afternoon, the press embargo for Destiny's official reveal was lifted and Bungie released the first ViDoc. I gathered a bunch of what I thought would be important facts and weeding out details that'll be reitterated over the next several months before an anticipated holiday 2013 release. Last Tuesday when I realized what the ARG was all about, the first question that popped into my head was why Bungie would want to put out a major reveal a few days before the anticipated PlayStation 4 reveal on the 20th.

It was poor and rushed and showed nothing much...ms said this will he revealed to stop the ps4 hype train...its only made the ps4 reveal even more enticing to me.

further more its a multiplat title

Godmars2901257d ago

By what little I can understand of the article, which for being short manages to ramble and poorly gets to the point, its more to bolster the PS4 reveal. That Bungie or Activision are getting out the news ahead of Sony's announcement to remind everyone that its a multiplatform title and not just one the Xbox. That more of the game will be shown on the 20th.

Microsoft said no such thing, how could they when it's an Activision game?

"ms said this will he revealed to stop the ps4 hype train"

such a false statement.. no one said anything of the sort.

Heavenly King1256d ago

well, it could be true. Ex-Epic Cliff said: “The real reason Bulletstorm was built was because Gears [of War] wasn't ready for this spring and we needed a product to fuck with Killzone.” Who the hell would have motivated that? M$ obviously.

So this is not a surprise at all if true, if M$ paid some small cash to Activision so that they reveal the game prematurely in order to stop some PS4 hype.

@Heavenly King

But Bulletstorm was released on ps3 as well so why would MS waste money on endorsing it's release?? Epic is an independent studio, Cliff was referring to Gears in terms of the Epic making money because it's their only major game. MS wasn't affected by it at all and it wasn't an xbox exclusive so how would it change anything??

ANd beside, there were many other games coming out at that time, like crysis 2 so it doesn't make shit sense to me.

Heavenly King1256d ago

I agree. I remember when KZ3 was about to be released, and Ex-Epic Cliff said: “The real reason Bulletstorm was built was because Gears [of War] wasn't ready for this spring and we needed a product to fuck with Killzone.” Who the hell would have motivated that? M$ obviously.

So this is not a surprise at all if true, if M$ paid some small cash to Activision so that they reveal the game prematurely in order to stop some PS4 hype.

It was rather lackluster, a shame, It was full of intrigue and I wanted something.. different. Always online FPS, i'm not much in the mood for it. To each his own.

Blastoise1257d ago

Is the "Always Online" thing confirmed? If so, that's a bit of a downer =/

barb_wire1257d ago

Yes, I've read it on multiple sites.. there is a "single player" component but in order to get the most out of the full game - you have to be online.

Find it very striking that the PS3 version isn't supposed to come out until Fall 2014 as per the contract.

Thatguy-3101257d ago

Seems very haloish which isn't my thing. I'm still open minded to how it will work but for now I'm not psyched up for it. Like theBAWSE said I for one am more psyched up for what's to come out on the 20th. Still will keep my eye on this title as more info is released.

Summons751257d ago

No gameplay, I was disappointed.

aviator1891256d ago

yes there was...not much, but there was gameplay.

I would be more hyped if they announced Planetside 2 for ps4. I just felt this was rushed and not ready to be shown yet.

krisq1257d ago

PlanetSide is Sony's game. There is 99% chance that it's coming to PS4 IMO.

Blackdeath_6631257d ago (Edited 1257d ago )

if it can run on ps4 they will consider it. no reason not to unless there is technical barrier as with the ps3 but planetside is a very cpu and ram intensive game. recommended specs are atleast 8gb of RAM an intel core i5 or higher which is a 3.3GHz quad core and 1GB of VRAM the rumoured specs we have heard of so far fall short of all those requirements apart from the GPU. i'm sure sony will make it work if they wanted to but that just shows you how far consoles are from pc. the good thing about consoles is that the developers make their game around the console hardware whereas on pc the developers make the game and its up to you to have a strong enough pc planetside however was built from the ground up to be a pc game that will last a very long time even if pc hardware advances significantly thats why there is a hidden Ultra setting in the game files i would say a 70% to 80% chance.

Drekken1256d ago

Planetside 2 runs rough on even the best of machines. They will need to do some serious tweaking to get it running smooth on a console. I hope they can pull it off though. I think it will boil down to the amount and speed of the ram and videocard.
