Destiny Footage Running On Next-Gen Console?

Eskimo Press: "Destiny, Bungie's ambitious upcoming sci-fi adventure, has certainly nabbed the attention of the gaming press after the recent reveal featurette. Aside from speculations running rampant about how the game itself will shape up, there's now just cause to assume that the footage shown in the video is running on next-gen console tech. " (Activision, Bungie, Destiny, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Tech, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

My expectations are realistic when it comes to what PS4 games will look like but there's just no way those few snippets of gameplay were running on next gen-tech. They looked like they would run without breaking a sweat on PS3/360/WiiU. Do you honestly think Sony would allow PS4 footage to be openly shown before their event on the 20th?


Really? Well each to their own but I have my doubts. Do you think that the gameplay footage looked 'next-gen' to you?

If it is unannounced, sure, why not? Bungie have also confirmed that this will be released on next gen consoles, so one would assume they've already started developing for the PS4/X720. Also, when it comes to revealing your game you'd want to make sure you show your strong hand... the lead console for development.

Anything is possible at this point, I'd say.

Your site is garbage.PLEASE stop submitting things every time you have an idea on the toilet.
DigitalRaptor  +   1089d ago
hey I'm sure some of the best ideas ever were conceived in a toilet.

Who cares, the gameplay footage could be a CGI-rendered Movie made in 3D Studio MAX or Maya on any Laptop.

Just remember the KZ2 pre-rendered movies introducing just the movies.
grab popcorn and just watch it. u cant play it, lol

You think that game could run on PS3 and 360? LMAO

It's not just the visuals that shows the capability of hardware. That game is massive with many people online with all kinds of vehicles and it still looked better than any game this gen LOL

Why do people on this site have such a simple way of thinking with weak resaoning skills?(sometimes willfully to justify fanboyism) Almost like the game is being unfairly criticized because it's taking the grahpical crwon away from whatever game.

A living breathing world with those visuals being a massive social game is impressive.

The footage looked quite good, but it's definitely in the reach of current gen.
Fyflin  +   1089d ago
I think that if next gen consoles had already been announced and tech demos/launch games shown then Bungie would have been able to show us some actual gameplay footage of Destiny. The footage shown so far looks comfortably current gen.

We know of absolutely tons of next gen games that are being worked on at the moment, but other than a few exceptions such as Ground Zeroes, we haven't seen anything of them yet.

@ThatKansasGuy. Our site. There are five staff members who work on this site.

Regardless, all the best ideas are born when you are on the toilet. Any writer can tell you this.

It's very unfortunate for you that you don't like the site. Just don't visit us. :)

Have a wonderful day.

Couldn't agree with you more he is probably some Sony fan boy that has the PS4 on the level of god interns of graphics but because you said that this game which looks good but not next gen good could be running on PS4 hurt his little Sony heart.
BigStef71  +   1089d ago
The game looked great but theres no way that was next gen footage. I think KZ3 and Halo 4 looked better than that. Remember the engine is scaleable so the next gen versions will probably look like crysis 3 or BF3 on pcs of course
Lolrus  +   1089d ago
It looked very uninspired and last gen to me. Especially the leaves and aliasing. Looked similar to Halo on 360 in art style and graphics. I understand the scale of the game is huge though

I expect a pc version, just because they got pc gamers all riled up seemingly on purpose. If it doesnt come to pc, oh well. People make too much of a game not coming to pc, but when games dont come to consoles nobody says consoles are doomed...
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1089d ago
I doubt it. If it means anything at all it just means they're doing some coding for the PS3 version.

I'm sure PS4 and 720 concepts have already began but this a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title first with " Other future gaming consoles" coming later.
sprinterboy  +   1089d ago
It is a massive open world, so maybe, look at dust 514, massive but graphically not great just like mag was, so it could be the graphics i guess, hope not but it is a big game.
Omar91  +   1089d ago
I think it could eventually end up on next gen consoles, But what we seen so far to me is not next gen footage.

To be honest how much of a difference will there be between this gen and next gen in terms of graphics? I think in the first year or so there wont be that much of a difference shown but as the developers understand the systems there will begin to show a bigger gap in graphics. Just my two cents.
jay2  +   1089d ago
No, nothing there was game play from next gen.
ginsunuva  +   1089d ago
Or, you know, they were running it on a pc like all devs do during coding.
Hufandpuf  +   1089d ago
Not from what I saw. I think the lack of gameplay footage is because of lack of polish. let them reveal a gameplay trailer and then decide.
JohnApocalypse  +   1089d ago
I was watching the IGN preview and one of the guys said "other future gaming consoles" as well
Sako  +   1089d ago
That's because that's a quote directly from the activision press release from this morning about the game not coming out in 2013
DeletedAcc  +   1089d ago
Lol it looks like halo4
Even god of war 3 looks better and its from 2010

Ps4 will look MUCH better
You dont believe? No problem, you will see on feb 20th :P
BattleTorn  +   1089d ago
Well, since you said so. I might save your username so I can contact you after the 20th. :P
whoyouwit04  +   1088d ago
see that's the problem with you Sony fans you really think Sony is going to deliver this monster of a machine. but you are setting your selves up for disappointment. but the thing is Sony can show games all looking like destiny and you fan boys will be all over it like it's the most impressive thing you ever seen. Sony fan boys are the most unrealistic gamers in the world, crytek just came out and said what I have been saying from the off that no next gen game will look as good as crysis 3, Yet sony fans still want to argue. just except it that the Ps4 is not going to be the beast machine you want it to be and move on.

Now I'm not saying that they want have games that won't look better then destiny cause thats bullshit, Destiny doesn't even look that great.

Furthermore, one could argue that the PS3 was a beast machine in comparison to the Xbox 360.

And look how that worked out..
greenpowerz  +   1088d ago

Is a linear game with static props and fixed camera angles LMAO This game is a massive socail game with different gameplay types(Vehicles, multi player etc)

God Of War 3 isn't even on the same technical level as skyrim let alone Destiny
claud3  +   1089d ago
it's running on a high end PC
Npugz7  +   1089d ago
Not very impressive graphics if you ask me! The 360and ps3 could pull any of that off.

"With Sony's big PlayStation 4 reveal meeting only a couple of days away, it is not too farfetched that Destiny might be demoed at the event to showcase some of the PlayStation 4 capabilities"


Just cause the announcements were days apart, you think "IT IS NOT TOO FARFETECHED" to think that it might have been showcasing the PS4?
