Very excited for this game
mewhy32  +   344d ago
I can't wait!! This game has had me since E3. Look amazing, with drop in and out multiplayer, public events, awesome graphics and, what sounds like, a great story. I'm really excited for this one.

"You see other people on the horizon, hear gunfire over a hill and see space magic flying behind some trees, and you know… there are other people out here, that [changes everything]. Borderlands right now is: ‘I’m going to walk into that space and we’re going to clear them out and keep going"

This is very very true. This is part of what makes DayZ so great. Adding human players to an open-world game makes everything more unpredictable and exciting. It also allows for plenty of anecdotal situations to happen

I'm not really into Halo like I was before, but this game has me very interested. It's something that seems just fresh enough to make it worth while.
pimpschitz  +   343d ago
That's my argument, I haven't even played Halo 4 yet, and from what I saw my buddies playing I was just kind of like "meh, it's another Halo game." Destiny looks fresh and awesome in all it's entirety, I can't wait to get into that game, create my character and job class, and start blasting shit. Going to be stellar.

Destiny is one of the reasons why I am buying a PS4.
thrust  +   344d ago
I know what you mean, it's one of the games am looking forward to most on the Xbox one after watching the vids on the site.
XB1_PS4  +   344d ago
I'm getting it for Xbox One, mostly because of the dedicated servers Microsoft invested in.

I imagine the graphics will be slightly better for Ps4, but online gameplay is what I'm concerned most about.
thrust  +   344d ago
The gfx will be the same.
FlameHawk  +   344d ago
@ sofresh412 , LMAO, again people with the dedicated servers, tell me, don't you think they will already have dedicated servers for the game?
mxrider2199  +   344d ago
@sofresh its an mmo it will be a dedicated server lmao
and most of ps fp titles have had dedicated servers for years kz has had it mag had it idk if socom did or not never played it im pretty sure uncharted did as well even driveclub is having dedicated servers

I'm almost certain Bungie already confirmed they are using their own servers.
nosferatuzodd  +   343d ago
DeadlyFire  +   343d ago
All MMOs utilize their own server setups regardless of platform. Its easier than navigating through other's servers to make the game changes you want.

Microsoft's servers are mostly for cloud features. Dedicated servers maybe in the future, but I am doubtful they have full scale dedicated servers for all their games on their platform.

At time of writing Agrees (23) Disagrees (5)

Virtually the same comment with the exception of console preference and look at the difference. Definitely know we are on n4g. Why can't people just accept ones choice in console. The whole agree/disagree system needs to be replaced with a similar one like GameSpot have and just have a like button. If you "Agree" with them or Like what they say the click like if you don't and you disagree then take the time to comment and voice why you disagree
ps3_pwns  +   343d ago
100 times better then any halo will ever be. destiny is all you need its the new next gen call of duty but 10 times better. it also makes titanfall irrelevant. also there will be 10 times more people playing this on the ps4 with mics then on the xbox one. ps4 nation baby!

also this game does everything better then borderlands. the realistic graphics alone and shows you that and look at those boss battle enemies.

ps4+destiny= the best of next gen
The_Sneauxman  +   343d ago
For me the big sell point is that you can seamlessly play with others in the game and see them far away and you get the choice to help or leave them be
Benchm4rk  +   343d ago
There will be plenty of players on both systems for one to enjoy the game online. COD sells way more on 360 but I have never heard of people complaining on PSN that there is no one online to play with.
showtimefolks  +   343d ago
Make the world more interesting

Please please please reward your players better, borderlands 2 has one of the worst rare system. To get a good gun you have to beat one boss 20 times and even than its a risk. I love the first borderlands and in anticipation I pre ordered borderlands 2 and season pass and was very disappointed

Reward got everyone, in borderlands 2 who gets to the loot first picks up everything so it would be nice if each player gets his or her own loot after a encounter

More diverse open world with more interesting characters with a back story

Also if there is driving please make he driving a fun thing not just get from poit. A to point b
golding89  +   344d ago
No doubt for sure i am excited for this but part of me is even more excited for the division.. The division will set the bar high for online multiplayer this next gen i believe.

Destiny & The Diivision in 2014..........gaming is going to be so "GOLDEN" next year!
sAVAge_bEaST  +   344d ago
This whole next-gen is going to be "GOLDEN" ,,. I have a feeling we will see more games, than on the Ps2,. every genre will finally be covered again -through ease of development.

That's been my dilemma for the past few years. Between being a shift worker and father of 3 I rarely get to play my games like I use to. I have enough backed up to last me well into next gen

CRAIG667  +   344d ago
The thing about Borderlands that makes it so much fun is the fact it doesn't take itself seriously whatsoever, and if it does it has it's tongue firmly in cheek, Bungie will no doubt have missed that.
mxrider2199  +   344d ago
borderlands is just boring its just grinding on bots
CRAIG667  +   344d ago
Totally depends how you play it. I can see you are correct at the simplest level, but you could break ANY game down like that and make it sound crude. The true joy of Borderlands is playing online with friends doing missions, but farming awesome guns./shields etc is sooooo good when you finally get what you wanted.
mxrider2199  +   343d ago
exactly farming/grinding for gear that cant even be used in pvp your stock killing meaningless bots in boring missions the most fun i had was driving a car that was only for a limited time i mean i can see y people like it its customizable and doesnt take much skill to be a beast at it i just find it like WoW except WoW is better bc of the pvp aspect it has and the raids are cooler but in borderlands its all about grinding
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   344d ago
Hopefully the main thing it does better is not have shitty bugs or maybe compatibility with what you're playing on so a driver doesn't make it unplayable.
SIRHC13  +   344d ago
That title is misleading. Bungie didn't state that they will particularly do anything "better". It was more about differentiating themselves with a persistent world that's always filled with players versus a straight-up co-op shooter like BL or even Halo.
Agent_hitman  +   344d ago
Based on what I saw on Amazon best sellers, the PS4 version of DESTINY got the advantage in pre-order over X1. It seems that Bungie will become Sony's next best friend next gen.
golding89  +   344d ago
Not to be a party pooper but that's trolling and off topic. Not sure what ps4 version and xbox one version sales have to do with this article. I am just saying :-/

Ace Killa 08  +   343d ago
Indeed, how do they relate?

On a side note it has been mentioned that Destiny will be a better experience for Sony as Bungie is working more with them than on Xbox. I don't know to what extent, but I believe it was mentioned this past E3 or the reveal of the Ps3 controller.
spicelicka  +   344d ago
Not necessarily, bungie is just focusing more on their support because it's their first time developing for sony. It's the same with Insomniac and Microsoft. In the beginning the developers have to earn support but it all smoothens out later on.

Either way, pre-orders don't mean anything and no one should give a crap about sales anyway.
Paytaa  +   344d ago
Not their first time developing for Sony. They released a console exclusive to the PS2 called Oni. They co-developed with Rockstar on it.
stevehyphen  +   343d ago
@Paytaa Oni was a pretty good game, too. I enjoyed it on PC. Also, I loved playing Myth II. That game was like a 3D Age of Empires except the soldiers gibbed each other.
spicelicka  +   343d ago

I know i knoww, i realized someone would bring ONI up. But it was literally a decade ago and it doesn't affect my point because i was referring to bungie's popularity among the new Sony fanbase.
GamerGuy153  +   343d ago
For an MMO, sales in some way or another, do have relevance. More people playing the game means that the online community will be more vibrant and will have greater longevity. That being said, both versions will be equally great.
Psychotica  +   344d ago
"You can party up with a group of people and then go around with that group" - Yeah but I don't want to, that's what I like about Borderlands, I don't have socialize with other people.
KillrateOmega  +   344d ago
You don't have to do that in Destiny either, or least to an extent:

But if you don't want to play with other people, then you're kind of missing the main appeal of games like Destiny, Borderlands, and MMOs.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   344d ago
Yeah but Partying up with other people has huge advantages.

If you party up with the right people sometimes random squad mates give you stuff, like rare weapons or Gear.

Lets be honest, you'll always have those near 24/7 players who are grinding at that game while your freakin sleep.

Hitting up quest that you hear about the next day only for the quest to be completed by dozens of other people.

That's what's gonna be hard for me, finding unique places and quests rare gear creatures or new info about the universe, only to have 20 other players beat me to the punch.
maniac76  +   344d ago
yeah,cant wait to play this.

play mute if ur nerdy shy lmao
ForgivenZombie  +   344d ago
I am excited about Destiny, just wish I didn't have to wait so long...

I know hope its worth the wait still waiting for them to announce the PC version of this game.

BLAKHOODe  +   344d ago
I wasn't paying any attention to Destiny, but comparing it's gameplay to that of Borderlands and FarCry has definitely captured my interest.
_FantasmA_  +   344d ago
I'm cautious about this game right now. I mean they did milk Halo for about 12 years, so I need to know that this isn't another Halo with loot and multiplayer.
mxrider2199  +   344d ago
it was microsoft that milked halo they were under contract with them y do you think the 2 halos they made after halo 3 sucked bc they didnt care about it anymore and wanted to move on
_FantasmA_  +   343d ago
I thought Halo 1 was the only decent one, and even then the game got boring one the flood came in and that library level dragged on too long.
mxrider2199  +   343d ago
for story yes hao 1 was the best but halo 2 developed online gameplay that defines our matchmaking today and halo 3 was all about party gametypes that were just fun all the other halos are just trying to copy other innovations makng halos originality fade and disappear all together
Supermax  +   344d ago
I have no clue why people are preordering it.destiny is a day one digital download for me it's not going back to a store ever.
C-Thunder  +   343d ago
People still like disks, going to the store, interacting with others, peeling off the plastic, that new game smell that probably causes cancer....it's good stuff.
bjmartynhak  +   343d ago
Because most of the times digital is more expensive?
Darkfist  +   344d ago
so whats the difference between ps3 and ps4 other than graphic?
GamerGuy153  +   343d ago
Additional power over the previous gen means so much more than graphics. It means more detailed environments, bigger worlds, more seamless gameplay, deeper more integrated online experiences, better physics, more lifelike characters, more intelligent AI. All of which make for a more immersive game. I'd say that goes a long way in differentiating the last generation from the next. Even out of the launch titles, these aren't just current gen titles with pretty graphics, they are new and deeper experiences.
LAWSON72  +   344d ago
Borderlands is great, but Destiny seems to be a totally different style game other than having classes and looting, which should be in any shooter rpg anyways. It also seems much more broad then Borderlands. IMO nothing can really be compared to Borderlands because if any game has gave itself a unique identity it is Borderlands

I wasn't really interested in this game until earlier today when I watched a couple of videos, one of which was the big IGN reveal and I'm totally sold now.
iRocket  +   343d ago
I want this game on PC! Borderlands 2 is one of my favourite games ever, and something like that will be AWESOME!
Mac420  +   343d ago
Bungie an Rockstar are some of the only studios, who's games I buy day 1. IMO there is only a few studios besides them that seem passionate about there work an willing to stand up to publishers with a 6 year developement cycle or however long they need. Everybody else just sacrifices there talents to push titles out every year or every other for the publishers sake. This is a day one digital download for me. Just hope Bungie didn't sign a deal with the devil, they left MS Studios because they were done with Halo an MS wants to keep milking that. Then they go an sign with Activision just makes no sense hope everything doesn't end up like before.

It froze on stage at E3 multiple times on Ps4, just sayin'...
GamerGuy153  +   343d ago
It's pre-alpha code, that's likely to happen even if they ran it on a computer. The system can only work with the code it;s given
christrules0041  +   343d ago
Yes and lococycle crashed on a high end PC. It happens. But right now consoles are being finalized and I'm sure heat testing for the PS4 is probably coming to a close seeing how it is listed as a safe product for selling. But they had incomplete hardware with incomplete coding which makes it really easy to crash or freeze any game.

Another example would be when Ryse dropped down to 18FPS during Microsofts E3 conference and if the Xbox One didn't get the right coding in time it could have crashed the game.

There is too many unknowns and we won't know how it really performs until after the consoles are released.
Drabent  +   343d ago
Didn't c any lag at E3 demo, unlike BL2 online.
redknight80  +   343d ago
I am a massive fan of Borderlands 1 and 2 so if they are saying that they can take that formula and improve on it? Ohhhhhh, I am sold! Just the fact that the game will be in the same vein as one of my favorite games has me excited!
urwifeminder  +   343d ago
Oh I hope so I hated boringlands everyone online just showed each other guns .
Fergusonxplainsall  +   343d ago
Gotta get my hand on Destiny and waiting for Borderlands 3.

Both developers fill games with content to a whole other level. Cant go wrong this coming gen.
OmegaShen  +   343d ago
One thing they might not copy from Borderlands is the crazy weapons, but this game looks to be a must have.

Mmm I'm super excited for Destiny, got big hopes and bigger expectations:)
