Halo defined the Xbox. The game was instrumental in ensuring the system’s successful launch, and forever tied the Xbox to the shooter genre, which was particularly advantageous when Call of Duty became the biggest franchise of the generation. - PSLS
If Sony really does learn to advertise, this could be big for them.
The great thing for Sony is that Acti does the advertising, they just need to pay to stick the PS4 logo at the end. And Acti knows how to advertise.
...and gamers are smart and they should back Sony as well! MS are backing a dying franchise (COD), Sony are backing a fresh new IP. Greatness awaits 4>1
Can't wait to see Bungie demonstrate Destiny at Sony's conference tomorrow.
Sony have a better plan this generation.
This is one of my most anticipated games in a long time. This and Knack are going to be my early PS4 titles.
tell that to singularity...
E4 will be amazing i just cant wait to see
And suddenly Bungie is a great developer. When they were part of Microsoft Sony fans thought they were nothing special. Now they will do an amazing game because Sony will get timed exclusive content.
I'm loving the idea of open-world shoot everything that's a monster alien. Hopefully, clanning/partying up is easy and hopefully they have proxy chat and not just the normal group chat. I want to hear other people's conversation in the background just to make the world more alive.
sony doesn't need to learn the marketing firm makes the ads. The new team used to make google chrome, halo and gears ads.
And Activision will ruin it with microtransactions/dlc/paid services.. Hope not
Yup MS is so stupid by not supporting bungie first, oh well thats what happen when you are interested in TV instead of gaming. Bungie is one of my favorites developers, i hope it all goes well for Destiny.
Dude, MS still owns a stake in Bungie so what do you mean they aern't supporting Bungie first?...lol They are advertising for the PS4 because they will need it. The majority of their fan base is still on the xbox and they already have that audience.
I think some people forget Destiny is multiplatform.
I'm like, WTF are you morons talking about? Its multiplatform. Plus, Bungie sucked when they only worked for Microsoft. People change their minds I guess
MFW people realise it's not ps4 exclusive
Everyone knows Bungie, so this game has the opportunity to sell big-time across ALL platforms. However, I imagine Sony wants to make Destiny their own version of Call of Duty in the sense that they get exclusive stuff but it still sells a ton across all platforms. (because CoD, despite being called a 360 game, still sells 10-12 million on PS3 each year compared to 12-15 million on 360, so it's not like PS3 owners completely ignore CoD).
Yeah, but it is up to Sony to sell the game on their system. No one is stopping MS from pumping out Destiny commercials too, even if they don't have the exclusive content.
Actually, it's the publisher's decision to stick the word "xbox" or "Playstation" at the end of their commercials. There's plenty to stop microsoft or sony from advertising a third party studio's game. That's why all those call of duty adverts used to have "buy it on 360" at the end. Microsoft paid them royalties to do it. It's not microsoft's commercial, it's activision's.
ummmm dude, call of duty sells WAY better on 360, the best selling call of duty (black ops) only sold 3.3 million on ps3 http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... it sold 12 million on 360 no ps3 game has EVER sold 12 million has it??
With that link you're telling me that the game sold a big fat zero in europe ◔_◔ I usually don't use vgc but in this case it would be most accurate http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... The difference between xb and ps sales on cod is usually 2 million.
Thanks for the link raytrace. Uhg. The worst game in the series was the highest selling. That's crazy.
Modernwarfare 3 on ps3 sold 12.47million, so get your facts right boy. Tbh I do t even know why I replied I hate cod http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
Nobody but you CODturds care about COD. Get outta here with that trash. All I ever hear from you guys is Call Of Duty sells a durp a durp. who gives a shit
@raytraceme, thanks for the link. I can't believe the best COD in the series (COD4) has sold half compared to recent versions. Amazing how half of the COD fan base has never played the true great that is COD4. Absolutely amazing.
Well Sony get to advertise this as a exclusive even if it isn't. However Microsoft gets to advertise Titan Fall as a Xbox exclusive and it is. Also there are Also rumors of mirror edge 2 and Fall Out 4 also being exclusive to Xbox platforms.
Hmm, I just can't see Mirror's Edge 2 being an exclusive to any platform. The whole reason we haven't seen 2 yet is because the first one didn't sell enough, and halving the market isn't going to help.
Exclusives are dead from third party developers.
Titan Fall is also coming to PC and Xbox 360, giving little reason to purchase purchase the X1, with a chance of it coming to the PS3/4 at a later date. But Fallout 4 on the next hand is. @below, That's just it; With games also coming to PC, there is little reason to go and get a platform for a game that you can play on your current unit. Unless you dont have a Gaming PC. My point that I'm getting at, there really are many people going to rush and get a game like Titan Fall on the X1, if they already have a 360 or a gaming PC. But there is more of a chance for someone to pick up a PS4 for Killzone or Infamous, since it's not coming to the PS3 and we don't know how Gaikia is going to work as of yet or when PS4 games will be available on PC through Gaikia. Whether it's the same day the PS4 game releases or later.
And a lot of Sony games are coming to PC via Gaikia, so whats your point.
"But there is more of a chance for someone to pick up a PS4 for Killzone or Infamous, since it's not coming to the PS3" Well if that's the case, there is more of a chance of someone picking up xbox one for Ryse, Quantum break and Forza 5 Since they wont be on 360 or PC.
Most of ps4 exclusives are coming to PC, same story with xbox so shush. Take off that fanboy glasses.
@Foolsjoker: Quantic Dream says hi
They're second party, not third...
I can see Mirrors Edge 2 as an exclusive considering how much EA and Microsoft have been tickling each others private parts lately, forced DRM and what not (EA loves that stuff). But Fallout 4? Naaah, well sure, Bethesda are sloppy but come on, this time around there are no excuses.
yeah whoyouwit04 that's where ms put 1 billion dollars into next gen they pay for exclusive games from 3rd party no strings attached and ms doesn't have to buy anymore 1st party studios.smart business move , but not good for gamers when they would be stuck with the xbox one features.
Dude, Microsoft have 15 Exclusive coming from their first party studios alone, and even more at GDC and TGS. Yet they also have 3rd party exclusives and you think it cost them a billion bucks get the [email protected] out here. I am so sick and tied of you sony fans saying Microsoft is paying for exclusive as if they are the only ones. their are rumors that the next final fantasy is exclusive to PS4; So you think sony didn't pay for it. Microsoft has over 23 studios with most being multiple teams. That's were their billion dollars are going compared to Sony's 500 million and 14 studios. Lastly, you do know that microsoft has a studio in both america and Europe created just for getting 3rd party exclusive right? Microsoft Studios – Redmond Publishing – Overseeing and co-developing multiple projects in conjunction with third party development studios based in the Americas and Canada Microsoft Studios – EMEA Publishing – Overseeing and co-developing multiple projects in conjunction with third party development studios based in Europe, Middle East and Asia regions
^They never said those 15 games were all from their first party studios...
@whoyouwit04 Square putting FF exclusive for PS4 makes good business sense for them for several reasons but a cash payoff isn't one of them. First off the 360 is nonexistent in japan and same will probably be true for XBONE. They already tried putting FF13, 13-2, and soon 13-3 on 360 to unremarkable success, the PS3 version was superior and sold alot better. With it just on Playstation, the game can be made to its original vision without the sacrifices that would need to be made if it was also an xbox title.
''Titan Fall as a Xbox exclusive and it is. '' No, is a multiplatform. PC will have it. ''And a lot of Sony games are coming to PC via Gaikia'' No, Gaikai service is exclusive for the PlayStation brand, Sony bought it, for PS4.
It's worth backing up a company that did one of the best console fps! I hope this will be a familiar hit like Halo.
Destiny will be beast on PS4, but I do not see it breaking out amongst all the other games.
I hope it does good but I think it will get lost in the shuffle so to speak. I hope Bungie blows my mind at E3 though.
I can't get too exited for Destiny, I don't need to play another sci-fi shooter, fantasy RPG, or modern warfare shooter for at least five years. I'm burnt out, need something new and original.
I agree with you in some ways, but Destiny does look like it could be something new even if it's in a traditional sci-fi setting. It's my most anticipated next gen game so far even though I was never impressed with the Halo series. As for military shooters, I want something less like CoD and more like SOCOM or the Operation Flashpoint games, minus their flaws of course. I envision a game on a huge scale, like Planetside 2 except with realistic modern military tech, where each player has control of a three man AI squad, and that squad can level up like in XCOM, or die if the player makes a bad decision and sends them into a bad situation. The enemies could be AI or human, and the frontlines would change according to what happened in each battle. I bought Operation Flashpoint: Red River used a week or so ago, and have been playing it and replaying OF: Dragon Rising, so the game I described above has been much on my mind lately. Even with their flaws, the OF games are so much more entertaining to me than CoD or Battlefield. By the way I didn't agree or disagree with you.
Even if Destiny is the greatest thing since sliced bread COD still will sell more because it has millions brainwashed and no matter how watered down and generic it is millions will buy it every year. Its like the plague of gaming its so horrible but will always be here to stay.
Agreed. CoD is designed for the masses, easy to pick up, so it will always sell more. How much a game or console sells doesn't interest me though. I just want the console I like to sell enough to be supported and the game I like to sell enough that there are people online to play it when I play it. "Winning" to me doesn't mean selling more. I had no idea PS2 was dominating like it was while I was playing games on it.
Can't wait for the gameplay reveal tomorrow, should be good!
Bungie are amazing can't wait to see what Destiny will bring to nextgen
Hopefully this game is good. I know Bungie can do shooters but it'll be interesting to see how it sizes up to the inevitable Halo-comparison. Bungie seems to advocate the comparison too...exciting stuff.
This game is going to be sick. I'll gladly wait for this game, on the up and up I am officially in the market for a PS3/PS4 (once released of course). I can't wait to play The Last of Us, Destiny, GTA 5 and countless others. I'm playing Alan Wake right now, pretty good so far (almost done I think). I'm sad that some games are exclusive but it can't be helped. I heard something that the RARE work coming out is Killer Instinct, and that it will be XBO exclusive. So pissed. Other news suggest that Fallout 4 is XBO exclusive. I might have to bitch rant to RARE and Bethesda if they do that, I'd be pissed if I finally switch to PS (because Xbox blows goats) and they release my favorite Bethesda game and my favorite fighting game (long waited for indeed) . . . on a console I will not be supporting. I want to sell my XBox 360 to Gamestop but my girlfriend wont let me lol.
Microsoft owns Rare, so Killer instinct won't be on any other platform other than a Microsoft platform.
I realized that after I posted it. Yeah it sucks. What can I do? I was just posting about Rare release on another thread, and realized that I said that. I wish that Killer Instinct would go to PS4 anyway, I know that MS owns it, but think of it this way. If MS lets PS4 get their hands on it, that's money in Microsoft's pockets . . . cause they are about to go bust on the XBO. lol
fallout wont be an exclusive but i do believe ms will hold timed DLC for fallout 4
Destiny will be great on any platform, the reason why sony is backing Destiny (bungie) its because bungie wants to secure a fanbase on the sony side (playstation) even though they probably already fans there (multi platform owners) Since bungie has already set a fanbase for the xbox side thanks to microsoft (xbox).
Well said. That's probably the sole reason (and some sony cash) that they focus now on presenting it on ps4. Xbox players know already how good bungie is at their games, now sony side needs convincing. It will be an awesome game!
I don't know about the 'sole reason'. Apparently XboxOne development is lagging behind PS4 development due to the complexity of programming for eSRAM. They've probably gone with Sony because the game is a little further along on that hardware.
I've been underwhelmed by Destiny from what i've seen. As one who doesn't ever play cod or halo online, there isn't anything there for me. It's really just an mmo shooter but i've played alot of uncharted online though. I hope it does well and playstation becomes the preferred platform, i'll keep an eye out for planetside 2 on PS4 too as its a title people should find out about.
It may be a really good game. But since bungie is in activisions pocket, it well turn out, you know, a cod.
Guys that's saying gamestop is not accepting preorders yet we know!!!! but ppl are still calling them and asking about the preorders and when they will start accepting! ppl are calling on the daily basis asking about both consoles that's why a first to know list was setup but even with that ppl are still calling them and asking about preorders.
Everyone mark kalowest a troll he doesn't deserve that many bubbles! On subject , I can't wait to play this massive game of futuristic warfare. Should be awesome!
This is a huge trump card for Sony....Bungie is an amazing developer and destiny will be an amazing game... Cant wait to see more Bungie!!! bring on tomorrow.... I'm really glad that Sony fans will get to experience it too!!!
Sony is on a roll. They got a new marketing team. They are making their platform extremely attractive to developers. And they are backing potential IP's while bringing in fresh new ones of their own. Couple this with the easy nature of the PS4 platform and you have a Sony rediscovering their mojo. I will say it again, the PS4 is going to pull better numbers than the PS3 did and its not that too far fetched to suggest it might eclipse the PS2 as well. PS4OUR
"Our goal is to make Destiny the biggest new IP launch in history." Statements like that tend to put me off. The really amazing games are never the ones created like that. I immediately think of games like SWTOR, which (maybe due to hype) always end up disappointing. Still if it is a success Sony would do well to get in on the ground floor.
But MS still has the new "Titanfall" and logo association with CoD. But I think Sony's diversity in titles will be its strongest asset to counter that.
This will be great for PS4.
I'm interested in this title. Although Dust514 wasn't that great, it was a little too nerdy and 'evish.' This game peeks my interest, but I wonder if it will really live up to the hype they are trying to generate. I am excited though. It might be really fun. Can't remember if this one is free to play or not.
lol I agree I just quit dust a few weeks ago and I logged alot of hours skillpoints and isk in that game. Closed beta vet here, the game really was extremely nerdy and complex to the casual new players and the install base is too low. CCP nerfing stuff every minute and not being able to get simple game play mechanics right is not helping them neither.
