Top 5 Reasons Why Bungie’s “Destiny” Will be the Biggest New IP Launch of All-Time

Halo was big, WoW was big, and Call of Duty was big but they ain’t got nothin’ on Destiny. Bungie pulls out all the stops and is preparing to drop one of the most important new IPs we’ve ever seen.

We here at COG have been closely keeping an eye on Bungie’s latest massive undertaking, Destiny. While at E3 in LA a couple of weeks ago, we were blown away with the hands-off gameplay demo and to say there was a little Destiny fever on the E3 show floor would be an understatement. We are certainly excited about Bungie’s next venture & for good reason, it looks great so far. Not to mention it is clearly an ambitious game having been in development for approx 7-years or so. The expectations are undoubtedly high as Activision has gone ‘all in’ with Bungie signing them for 10 yrs which suggests we may see several Destiny games. At this point, the prognosis is very good for Destiny so we thought we'd give you five reasons why we believe Destiny will be the biggest new IP launch of all time. (Destiny, E3, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Fair points.

As for it being the "Biggest New IP Launch of All-Time", who know? Maybe it will, maybe it won't. I'll definitely crack open my wallet and try to help it get there though :)

Yeah I've pre-ordered both consoles and the ONLY game I've pre-ordered so far is Destiny. That being said there's a metric crap ton of other games I want but I'm not 100% on which I'm gonna plunk cash down on right away just yet.
KillrateOmega  +   770d ago
The only games that I know for sure that I'm going to get (once they are available) are:

inFAMOUS: Second Son
Battlefield 4
Killzone: Shadow Fall
Watch Dogs
Batman Arkham Origins
MGS5: The Phantom Pain

As for everything else, I'm on the fence. In an ideal world, I'd have enough money to buy way more than what I just listed, but, unfortunately, this isn't an ideal world.

Wow it's amazing to think with all the games you are buying it will be more than the system itself, 420$ plus taxes. Gaming is an expensive hobby unfortunately :/
Now shut up and take my money games!

@ Colts_15

Yeah but what system did you buy destiny for???..


Anyway a little of the dust has settled and we have seen some things.. -And sadly my views have changed on some games.. (like Driveclub - no longer looks like it's going to be good) -Thought it would be a huge open world, it's looking more like a point to point cheesy arcade racer and nothing more.. (I guess I'll check it out on PlayStation Plus, but as of now I'm on the fence..

So My must have list now looks like this..

-Day One-

The Division

Anything not on this list I'm on the fence on..

FamilyGuy  +   770d ago
Because it's an MMO...
Geezus  +   770d ago

It's going to be a big game. Big time sucker for many in the future I'm sure.
raytraceme  +   770d ago
I don't know this could be a battle between destiny and watch dogs and watch dogs is on more platforms than destiny as well.
Xer0_SiN  +   770d ago
this game looks fantastic. i think what gets me is the rpg-elements. im not really a fps fan. ill play this game for dynamic online and leveling system. only other fps im looking forward to is killzone.

has anyone seen TLOU sales ! Dem Numbers !
Sadist3  +   770d ago
Ok, so maybe I'm looking at a different destiny game or something, because the trailer at E3 made me decide not to buy this game. It looked very boring, just running around and shooting. What do people see in this game? I've been playing Halo games since 2003 and am tired of that crap, they need to do something new. T least the original modern warfare developers went from the military scene to mechs and walls runs....this game is like another Halo, guys just running around in circles and shooting. What's so fun about that? This game was hyped up so much, and that demo looked generic.
Digital_Anomaly  +   770d ago
Really who knows if the statement is true or not. To the people getting almost angry about it, it's an opinion piece. Relax yo' self!! Lol

Regardless, the 5 points he makes are pretty valid ones so you never know. I know for sure it's on my purchase list. Now I just need to narrow down the other 20+ games I want into the 10 games or so I can afford!
