Bungie not worried about Destiny server issues

"Developer says it will be prepared for "anxious mobs of players," teases gamers can play as aliens in upcoming shooter." (Bungie, Destiny, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

Maybe they should of done an offline aspect instead of making it a full on MMO. I bet they could of made a great single player....least have it optional.

I believe all the huge online fps titles will adopt the MMO model..It really makes perfect sense because fans of the genre love being connected online with other players anyway.

Yeah but after the SimCity thing you don't want them to take any chances

Besides I'm not a fan of MMOs...a lot of people arn't but they are fans of Bungie.

Least then it might encourage to want to go online more after the single player part, help them get into it more.

I agree but I really wish it was not MMO...dont get me wrong I do not have anything against MMO but they are not my cup of tea.

Also I wonder what will happen to Bungie if this game bombs, I dont expect it to do Halo numbers but Activion will not be happy if it does not do those numbers.

Amazing can wait to bad its a xbox exclusive for a whole year
vividi  +   1058d ago
I think is not an exclusive
Eldyraen  +   1058d ago
I'm pretty sure Bungie announced no timed exclusivity for consoles at launch anymore during PS4 announcement. That's what I gathered anyways.
aliengmr  +   1058d ago
I read somewhere they decided to do a timed exclusive with MS for a year, then release it on PS. That was the last thing I read after the PS4 announcement.

What I read could have been wrong, but I am sure that I read it right.

@Aliengmr: That was the original plan, didn't hear about anything new since PS4 reveal so may have to look it up for myself.
Godmars290  +   1058d ago
Until they have to worry about the servers. Like say launch day.

And it'll be too late...

Bungie is one company I would trust with the online capabilities. All of the Halo titles ran flawlessly online.
aliengmr  +   1058d ago
Yea, but they didn't have every single person who bought it on at one time. Halo also wasn't a persistent MMO either.

Not saying they can't handle it, but its not the same as standard online MP.
rainslacker  +   1058d ago
Pretty sure all the Halo titles used P2P connections which involve minimal server capabilities when it comes to online.

But yeah, I would trust Bungie not to screw up...unfortunately Activision will be running the servers, and them I don't trust as much. Although I would assume they have a few resources to get it right since they own Blizzard as well.

We know bounties is not worried because the server issues with the halo series was crap a lot of the times. Countless times since halo 2, halo fans have asked for dedicated servers. I know destiny will have them, but still learn from your past and quit acting like you got this ish handled. We know better. Skeptical is I.
