Bungie: Destiny can surpass Halo, sit alongside Star Wars

GI.biz: Pete Parsons talks to us about future-proofing Bungie and how the studio believes next-gen gaming is “no longer just about the hardware” (Destiny, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

TrevorPhillips  +   701d ago
I cannot wait for this game, looks incredible and is the Halo for the Playstation and next generation :)
blackmagic  +   701d ago
Top Halo? That's at least possible. On par with Star Wars? Completely and unequivocally delusional.
WeAreLegion  +   701d ago
Mass Effect surpassed Star Wars. Why can't Destiny?
Blastoise  +   701d ago
^ Mass effect wasnt as good as Knights of the old republic
pivotplease  +   701d ago
Oh snap at blastoise's point. It's really subjective though. Some people love halo. Some love Star Wars. Some love Star Trek. Some love stargate. Some love starhawk. As for people like me my appreciation of sci fi doesn't go much further than the ender canon. I prefer lord of the rings over Star Wars personally.
3-4-5  +   701d ago
At least they are aiming high though. That means that are trying to think outside the box, and not just follow what everyone else is doing.

This is good for dev's to think like this.

I'd rather that then a dev say " We want to be the next COD"
MrChow666  +   701d ago
no, halo is halo, period
SuicidalTendencies  +   701d ago
It's not going to surpass Halo. Why even set yourself up to fail like that?
logan_izer10  +   701d ago
So what you're saying is "Why try and top your previous performance? Just give up"
SuicidalTendencies  +   701d ago
Do you know how much Halo has sold? It sold Xbox systems for MS. Do you honestly believe Destiny will even come close to touching what Halo has done? Not likely.
Majin-vegeta  +   701d ago
Yea you're right man what were they thinking after all they did create Halo /S.
SuperLupe  +   701d ago
Yeah but you have to put things back in the context.

Halo coming out on the Xbox back in the day was a completely different context, environment, ecosystem or whatever you want to call it than todays videogame landscape.

I would be surprised if it ever does become bigger than Halo.
pivotplease  +   701d ago
I would be surprised too, but borderlands was amazing (just a little on the lower budget side). If anyone has the resources to carry out the promise of a high end sci fi take on borderlands it's bungie. It could potentially take the fps crown but I still have my eyes on battlefield, killzone, and titanfall. Things are getting competitive.
SuicidalTendencies  +   701d ago
Just because they created Halo doesn't mean it's automatic that their next ip will be as big.
strickers  +   701d ago
it might. I never liked Halo but Destiny is up there with Infamous, as my most anticipated games.
DARK WITNESS  +   700d ago
There is no reason they can't. They only really need to beat the benchmark they set with Halo CE. If they can beat that then they have done it.
Dan_scruggs  +   701d ago
The game is probably gonna be great but a little modesty would be nice guys.
Minato-Namikaze  +   701d ago
Why shouldn't they try to do better than their last game?
Dan_scruggs  +   701d ago
That is a fine goal to have but that doesn't instantly make it better than Star Wars. Star Wars has a 30+ year legacy of established lore. Movies, TV, video games, books, comic book, and so on. Star Wars has had a huge cultural impact. They shouldn't even be comparing themselves to that franchise. They should just worry about being their own thing.
Minato-Namikaze  +   701d ago
Set high goals, If you dream for mediocrity then you will be mediocre. If you aim to to be the best even if you miss you'll still have accomplished something great.
Dan_scruggs  +   701d ago
Do you think George Lucas set out to make the next Star Wars or did he just want to bring his vision to life to the best of his abilities? No He forged ahead with a vision all his own and wasn't aiming at topping any other existing franchise. True artist shouldn't compare their work to someone else's. It's art. Not a competition.
Minato-Namikaze  +   701d ago
Name a franchise that was as big as star wars is now, back then. Point stands, i'm glad they are aiming high.
WeAreLegion  +   701d ago
I have full faith in Bungie. Destiny looks like a new industry standard.
ramtah  +   701d ago
deff day one for my ps4 when destiny comes out
LaChance  +   701d ago
Me too on my Xbox One ! Even got it pre-ordered.

The cool thing is that I pre-orderd Titan Fall too, Halo 5 is the next one on the list. Three of the future FPS blockbusters on my Xbox, cant wait !!

Cheers man ! Great times lieing ahead of us ! You with Deestiny, me with Destiny, TitanFall and Halo !

"go ahead with your gaylo titanfall is timed exclusiveoh and kz sf looks better then titanfall just another cod game so onley another gaylo for you sir"

LOL that escalated quickly.
grayfoxx881  +   701d ago
It could top the SW prequels, because for the most part anything could. Couldn't ever touch the original films. Destiny could surpass Halo, seeing how that series has changed over the years.
B1uBurneR  +   701d ago
Using Common senseDestiny can surpass Halo easily because its a multi platform games. in a sense its hard to say it can't unless it completely bombs
Minato-Namikaze  +   701d ago
Not really. Just because a game is Multiplat doesnt mean much. Look at Tomb raider 2013 and The last of us, Both games have sold about the same amount but one is on multiple platforms and the other is exclsuive. Quality of the game matters more than anything else.
mt  +   701d ago
we the gamers will decide on that bold statement, thank you.
-Gespenst-  +   701d ago
It looks like an okay game. The atmospheric, non-combat parts are easily the best looking thing about the game- reminds me s lot of Half Life and Portal. The fighting just looks tedious and repetitive, and the drama and cutscenes are just nauseatingly cheesy and broad, not to mention the story.
Gamer666  +   701d ago
So far this game looks like Halo in a dynamic world. That's not a bad thing (in fact it really rocks), but Halo can catch and pass it...
strickers  +   701d ago
Halo looks like bilge compared to this. It was designed for weaker consoles. This is Halo plus Mass Effect style plus Borderlands 2. More appealing than Halo to all but fans
GearSkiN  +   701d ago
Nah doubt it I got zero hype for this game and I love bungie, have every single halo games/books, dunno why this game won't capture me...
skydragoonity  +   701d ago
This game is better than halo obviously. Halo ended at halo 2.
