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.

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.

JBSleek1092d 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.

Johnsonparts231092d 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?

@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.

thrust1092d ago

Can not wait for this game.

it will be so good on xbox live!

ramtah1092d ago

it will be better on ps4!

Lord_Sloth1092d ago

Please, people. Let's not start a console war here. Let's just talk about the game itself or the article.

mo2411092d ago

Lord sloth, you must be new here

Lord_Sloth1092d ago

Nope. Just askin the impossible like always. XXXD

SuperLupe1092d ago

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".

aliengmr1092d 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.

Krosis1092d 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.

NioRide1092d ago

I always love when people say "WoW"

since it has taken everyone of its ideas from other games. haha.

Krosis1092d ago

I was really referring to WoW's immense success and not it's originality or lack thereof.

NioRide1092d ago

Its success was because of its copying other ideas.

_QQ_1092d ago (Edited 1092d 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.

blackmanone1092d ago

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 Tretton1092d ago

Destiny interests me more than Halo ever did.
