Digital Foundry- Tech Analysis: Destiny

EG:Destiny is set to arrive simultaneously on four different platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and PS4 - all developed in-house at Bungie, each with its own dedicated online infrastructure. It's a mammoth undertaking for a team used to focusing on just one title on a single format, but the game is being built on technology that is scalable, meaning that the level of detail, effects work, physics and other subsystems can easily be pared down to work on a range of hardware configurations, simplifying the conversion process. But it's PlayStation 4 that was chosen as the host platform for the title's E3 debut, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from this new and exciting universe in its next-gen iteration.

Destiny could be the future of first person shooters on console

GodGinrai1093d ago

between this , Titanfall and BF4, I am going to be one happy gamer come launch of next gen :).

Dlacy13g1093d ago

agreed... those are my top 3 1st person shooters this coming year. The Division also will rank up there too but being a 3rd person view its a slightly different feel. All look excellent.

This game which was running on the PS4 was using the cloud to handle all the seamless match making and syncing and dynamic of hosting massive player counts...

Which begs to question, if The PS4 and other Current Gen platforms are getting a game that is online only and heavily dependent on server side operations with cloud, why are MS hyping up features like the power of the cloud for the X1 when The PS4 is clearly doing it! And not even making a big deal to really mention it?

Digital Foundary just confirmed that the PS4 version uses the "cloud" to handle server side computations... Did the Guys at MS forget that Sony Purchased Gaikai, a cloud service company that specializes in server side computing. Considering that the PS4 is built around Gaikai's technology, the cloud is every bit as integrated into the New PS Network.

So the PS4 is not only Cheaper, More powerful, but also shown to be using the cloud to run a game like Destiny.

Well lets just wait and see whats the difference between the two, well find out when they both release how gaikai is different from azure. Let me tell you, you will be surprised with how different they are.

Hopefully the character models will be a little more realistic when it comes to there body movement and animation the look like they are floating or skating on ice! Maybe take some pointers from the battlefield games animations
