There's this though, which could be a mistake/accident on their part.

that can be a standar script to show games

Didn't really see how it could be true. I love my Vita, and it's a powerful machine, but a game of this scale on it just wouldn't work. Unless people were saying it was a spin-off or something. Regardless, that was shot down pretty quickly lol.

Why not just get more games like Need For Speed? Same game, just visually held back a bit.

Visuals don't mean everyhing, and if your game turns to crap because of that then it wasn't a good game to begin with.
Snookies12  +   653d ago
I'm okay with cutting back visuals, but with a game like this, it seems like its scope is rather large. I just don't see it working on the Vita, as great a system as it is. People have to understand, it's not a console. It's a portable, just because it can play games that are also on console doesn't mean it can perform like them and shouldn't be expected to.

I knew it! Sony filed a trademark for the name, Destiny of Spirits about a month ago so it would be impossible (highly unlikely) for Bungie/Activision to be involved with the title.

Wow , Bungie really dropped the ball with this. I don't think they understand how much the Vita would boost sales for this game. Especially with PS4 connectivity . They could have dominated the market. Plus this really makes Bungie look bad with the recent talks of a Vita version. It's not good to piss on your fans expectations.
BlaqMagiq24  +   653d ago
Umm you do realize Destiny could be played on Vita through PS4's Remote Play right? There you go. You now have Destiny on Vita. And Bungie never talked about a Vita version.

Get your facts straight.

"Vita"
"dominated market"

*snicker*

The thing isn't doing too well for itself as a system, yet it is going to help skyrocket sales for a game just because it is on it.

Shhh...some people cannot handle the truth.

It would be more profitable for Bungie to release a half arsed Destiny on the 3DS than a dying VITA.

Vita is not dying, is growing slowy to be the winner!

still....go vita

I don't think anyone is upset, here. You can play any PS4 game on Vita. It would have been a waste of time to do a Vita version.
KillrateOmega  +   653d ago
I know. It was just a joke...
evanextreme  +   653d ago
Wow. I did not think of that.
KillrateOmega  +   653d ago
Jeez, it was only joke everybody :(

Sorry 'bout that, man. :/ Bubble for the misunderstanding.
Badnik  +   653d ago
Did they really debunk it? The article just says that Bungie stated that the image wasn't real, meaning the piece of marketing. The article never explicitly says that there isn't a Vita version coming out, even though they haven't announced it.
MikeyDucati1  +   653d ago
No, they weren't making a game in the first place but I do recall reading that they were making an add on app for Vita and smartphones that would connect to the game world but not necessarily play it. Just management. It wasn't an actual full blown game they were talking about...

So um, it's pretty vague at this point but they did mention that. I read it on IGN.

Destiny = PS4 game.

So if all PS4 games will play on the VITA threw remote play then....
GdaTyler  +   652d ago
A game called "Destiny of Spirits" actually does exist though. Remember when Sony trademarked it a while back? I think that maybe it will come but Bungie doesn't want to announce it just yet. A guy could hope. :(
