Why Bungie’s Destiny Worries Me

The mystery that has my interest piqued revolves around the business side of Destiny, and by that I mean specifically what will be monetized and how. (Destiny, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

yes this game reminds me of MS and their always on policies, that is the elephant in the room that people arent addressing. Ive said this a thousand times no one is listening. To use the power of the cloud you neeed to constantly update the game who is paying for this. with bungies game its is suppsoed to be evloving. who is payin gfor this, im all abou ta game changing and stuff but who is paying for this.

The game has loads of MMO like features, of course it's going to need (or at least recommended) to be online.

MS have created an awful stigma around online only games that they just don't deserve.
JBSleek  +   547d ago
No one is listening because your concern is a non factor.

Since when did people get concerned about this in a massive multiplayer role playing game.

That is like faulting WoW for being always online...Well yes that's the point.
Johnsonparts23  +   547d ago
right but WoW has a monthly subscription. Thats his point. Where's the money coming from thats going to fund these changes and evolution?
vickers500  +   547d ago
@Johnsonparts23

From the millions and millions of undeserved sales that they get from Call of Duty?

Maybe Activision finally decided to invest some of that dough into something other than CoD marketing.

This game is pretty much an MMO, of course it is always online.There are already SOOO many always online games that do just fine, Why are some console only gamers so opposed to always online.

i understand why thats a problem when applied to a system but when a game is always online then that means it is meant to be played online."Who is paying for this" you are when you buy the game and buy your PSplus/Xboxlive,thats how it works.PC has had online only games for years.

I don't mind staying signed in for my games since I do so to message my friends but if the connection dies (which is does sometimes in my area for a few hours to a couple of days) then I'm stuck without the ability to play it solo. If it lets me do that then it's all good, if not then I'll be forced to move games if I don't really want to.

I know it's a small gripe but it's still there so...

I'm not worried about anything else (payment methods) with the game really.

Can not wait for this game.

it will be so good on xbox live!
Jaqen_Hghar  +   547d ago
and Playstation Plus!
ramtah  +   547d ago
it will be better on ps4!
Lord_Sloth  +   547d ago
Please, people. Let's not start a console war here. Let's just talk about the game itself or the article.
mo241  +   547d ago
Lord sloth, you must be new here
Lord_Sloth  +   547d ago
Nope. Just askin the impossible like always. XXXD

Having a real hard time getting hyped for this game despite all the media hype and PR talk.

Nothing I've seen so far screams "one of the most ambitous games ever created".
aliengmr  +   547d ago
I feel exactly the same.

Its not that its looks bad or anything, but its talked about like its the 'second coming', and I just can't see it.

This is kind of unique because It really has nothing to do with the actual quality of the game. It looks well made and fun. But the hype surrounding it doesn't match what I've seen.
Krosis  +   547d ago
They will make their money on endless expansions and DLC. If they can, they will make this into their own "WoW". This looks cool so far. This and Titan fall might get me back into the online games scene.
NioRide  +   547d ago
I always love when people say "WoW"

since it has taken everyone of its ideas from other games. haha.
Krosis  +   547d ago
I was really referring to WoW's immense success and not it's originality or lack thereof.
NioRide  +   547d ago
Its success was because of its copying other ideas.
_QQ_  +   547d ago
@NIO Ride,well obviously WOW's execution of the ideas was much better. Everyone copies ideas, if not only Nintendo systems would have anolog sticks,and only The very first RPG would have leveling up.

Destiny doesn't worry me, but it does manage to interest me less than Halo did. Sci Fi light for people that don't "really" like sci fi.
Mr Tretton  +   547d ago
Destiny interests me more than Halo ever did.
sonicsidewinder  +   547d ago
Baby-tier sci fi.
Rhinoceros  +   547d ago
Shared world is not an MMO. I imagine it will work like Borderlands 2, but seamlessly integrate multiplayer experiences in HUGE PVE events.

I am excited for this game, I just hope it takes a LONG time to finish. Borderlands got boring, I hated having to go through the same levels 3 times while knowing that, at the end of the day, my end goal was to be able to go through the same level again. Snooze-ville.
Martywren  +   547d ago
Im looking forward too playing destiny.
punisher99  +   547d ago
Can someone enlighten me? Is this game Halo on steroids?
modesign  +   547d ago
planetside 2 can be considered "always on", any time of the day someone is fighting someone else and as a result your going to gain or lose territory. i think in some situations always on is great, allows for new game play mechanics.
mayberry  +   547d ago
Isn't destiny like a "boarderlands", which is cool if it is. Farming loot, upgradeable weapons, etc...
BootHammer  +   547d ago
Bungie has a lot to live up to with Halo's gigantic success but I think it has massive potential. I can't wait to see more footage and just maybe we'll get a Beta or a demo soon ;)
