Destiny: Bungie's own ‘Halo-Killer’?

The PlayStation 4 version of Destiny looks set to be the definitive version of Bungie's latest project. Will we then finally witness a 'Halo-Killer' on Sony's console? (Bungie, Destiny, PS4)

Huh? It's multiplat bro...let's talk about exclusive man

I agree but I do think there had to be one guy over at 343 Studios saying "F---, that S--- is brilliant!"
AngelicIceDiamond  +   956d ago
Well I think he means in a general sense. Can Bungie outdo Halo. Kind of like can COD outdo Halo. Obviously not they both co-exist.

Same thing I can see happening with Destiny.

Though it is funny hes treating it like its an exclusive.

Bungie going against it's own former IP.......Titanfall going against it's own former IP.

competition is good.

Throw in BF4 & Killzone and we have a nice amount of potentially good FPS games.

Destiny is looking great, let's not spoil it with ridiculous labels.
Crazyglues  +   956d ago
Yeah Destiny is looking amazing, and I think it was an awesome idea to go Multi-Platform...

I think that decision will be more successful then even their wildest dreams, as I don't know anyone who is not getting Destiny...

Don't forget to check out the Games Website - it's pretty cool - http://www.destinythegame.c...

So when FFXIII and Versus (XV)/ Kingdom Hearts or Metal Gear Solid goes multiplatform it's bad, but when it's Destiny it's good.

Something is wrong with PS Fanboys it looks like.
Crazyglues  +   956d ago
@ Pisque

I'm going to assume you meant that as a general statement and not at me personally because I never even played FFXII or kingdom hearts, and I never said anything about games going multi-plat.

For example Metal Gear Soild, I thought it was awesome that it's on both consoles because I personally feel MGS4 was an amazing game, and when MGS5 comes out Xbox fans will see just how amazing Konami is...

I think as gamers we are better off when we are not punished for our system choice..

So when it's possible I think it's cool..
(but that's just me personally, I don't know how others feel about that)

Bungie vs 343i

It's like Big Boss vs Solid Snake, mentor vs student
Rusty515  +   956d ago
Bungie vs 343?
Sounds more like a Goku vs Krillin kind of fight.
Kalowest  +   956d ago
And the good thing is 343i learned from their mistakes with Halo 4!
hankmoody  +   956d ago
I have no doubt in my mind that both Destiny and Halo 5 will both be incredible. Destiny practically has my cash already but I'm excited to see how 343i will improve on their impressive first shot on the Halo series.

So does this mean Kill zone never became the Halo killer? Only reason this game could become the Halo killer, is not because it is on the ps4,but because it will be on the xbox one and could actually steal some of its sells.
shivvy24  +   956d ago
Killzone turned out to be a Crysis killer ! Halo is just way too different to killzone ! I think Resistance Fall of Man was PS halo then 2 and 3 changed
hankmoody  +   956d ago
Is anyone even excited for Killzone 4? That game does nothing for me and judging from activity on the internet, no one is exactly clamoring for it.
Koyes  +   956d ago
Not really. The only thing that anyone talks about with Killzone: SF is the graphics and as Crysis has proven many times, graphics alone don't make a game.
Sevir  +   956d ago
Speak for yourselves...
Everyone who's played KZ said it's pretty darn good and more refined from it's ps3 outings which weren't bad at all to begin with. Have a seat. The market is ripe with some great games coming forward, with KZ:SF, Titan Fall, Destiny and Battlefield 4
Dlacy13g  +   956d ago
A multiplat title can't be the Playstation 4's Halo killer. I mean if you are trying to say that then COD was the Playstation 3's Halo killer since COD on PS3 sold better than Halo did. This article is flawed from the start.
Sonyslave3  +   956d ago
Destiny is a killzone killer ^__^ bungie not killing their own creation.
Zodiac  +   956d ago
Not a chance. Halo is too established. That would be like Nintendo making a character more popular than Mario.
Kos-Mos  +   956d ago
The trailer were far to cheesy for me.
HALOisKING  +   956d ago
lol no but destiny is looking good
Roper316  +   956d ago
while I'm not a Halo fan at least Halo has a SP campaign to it.
GABRIEL1030  +   956d ago
Destiny isn't a killer, the new franchise is an excellent opportunity to all Sony fans to discover the great talent from halo's creators. I can't wait, I already have pre ordered my copy the game looks amazing :D
hankmoody  +   956d ago
Which is hilarious when you take into account all the negativity thrown at Bungie over the past decade or so from all the PS3 zealots.
GABRIEL1030  +   956d ago
The world is crazy...Bungie was the great ally of MS and since MS betrayed Bungie and replace it with 343 industries, now they are almost enemies. The same with the people.

I was a Xbox fan, I played all the games of Master Chief from Halo combat evolved to the amazing Halo Reach ( I remembered of Emile's epics words) and now with PS3 I'm a big fan of the Helghast, never say never!

How?they aren't the same type of shooters.
KillrateOmega  +   956d ago
If you want anything to be a '(insert name) killer' in the gaming world, then the new game that you are releasing needs to appeal to the exact same range and group of consumers as what it's trying to 'kill', so as to get an accurate comparison of the sales results and ratings.

If the game that you are trying to kill is a multiplatform game, for example, CoD, then what you are trying to kill CoD with needs to be available on all of the same platforms as CoD. This is why I believe that Titanfall will not be a CoD-killer in its current state.

Same applies to exclusives.

To me Destiny looks like a good game, but Honestly I was a little let down by the Lore & Characters in this Universe Bungie created. Im not all that excited about it, its just a good game, not a "blown me away" type of game. I think I will probably give it a try on PS4, but after seeing the trailer, it didnt hook me like I was wanting it too.
Nocando  +   956d ago
I to am not exactly floored by what I have seen of Destiny, I hope I am pleasantly surprised.
