Bungie’s COO on Destiny: “We Don’t Believe in a Particular Platform, But in our Universe”

Quite often you hear developers saying things like "this wouldn't be possible on any other platform" giving the idea that their game is be built around its console of choice instead of the other way around.

This isn't the case with Bungie's upcoming game Destiny, as stated by Chief Operating Officer Pete Parson. (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I'm pretty sure that if there's a dev that won't do any compromises, that's bungie.

I agree.

The only aspect that I have felt that bungie could improve on is their integration of story into their games. I'm a huge Halo fan that chooses to invest more time into the novels and wider mythology that is present, but if you only play the halo games there isn't much in the way of character development and narration. You have to look for the story in their games rather than it being presented to you.

Halo 4 surprisingly had the greatest depth of story telling in the whole series and that was thanks to 343.

I have great respect for bungie and Im pretty confident that they will deliver with Destiny.

If that's the case then Bungie will definitely get my money.

Well they have to say stuff like that. I mean what were they going to say?"Well we could have made the PS4 version absolutely spectacular but we were held back by the lowest common denominator bone."

Ok that argument is getting old now, Im not even going to lie its starting to actually bother me when i see comments like yours..

Nothing could ever be positive or genuine unless its directed to the ps4 you Sony fanatics need to get over your selves already, seriously... Nothing but drama queen gamers in this place..

That's like me saying.. And what are you supposed to say, that bone is the better Console? Exactly...... Now scram kid, ya bother Me!

Edit

How does this article have anything to do with any particular version being superior?

they are basically saying "we have nothing to do with the console war, and we aren't playing favorites."

How anyone can take from that that the PS4 version is better is... laughable.

That's good to hear.

Nice to here a developer supporting there games and not a console or hardware. Looking forward to seeing what Destiny is like as looks fun from what I have seen so far.
ForgivenZombie  +   484d ago
It should be fun on whatever platform you choose, and later when I get my xbone, I'll buy a second copy of Destiny. The console war is getting old, just enjoy the games people.

I agree the console war is a load of poo. It is simple buy the console that has the games you want on it or if all 3 have the game you want then get the one most of your mates have to play them online with the game.

Considering this will be my first Bungie game ever, i'm hoping they deliver on the ps4. First impressions are everything here.
ZHZ90  +   484d ago
You didn't own any Halo game before?

Anyways Destiny will be my 3rd Bungie game, I used to own Halo 1&2 on original Xbox.

And I will own Destiny on PS4.

no...halo was never my kind of game. I liked the scifi aspect but it lacked a great story and the gameplay was unrealistic to me. not to mention you couldn't aim down sites.

That being said i never owned a M$ console until the 360. I've heard plenty of good things about halo 1 and 2 though.

I would love if they announced the ability to play with friends cross-platform. Getting it for X1, but have good buddies that are picking it up on there PS4. Maybe they could start the movement to have this feature in more games
Abriael  +   484d ago
Unfortunately microsoft's Xbox Live policies prevent that. That's why FFXIV isn't on Xbox One.
buynit  +   484d ago
That's a dirty move by ms but devs. Are just as much to blame because they do have a choice..

I really do wish they would take full advantage of each consoles strength but i guess that's too much to ask out of games that make billions of dollars..

Oops..Forget what i wrote i you are on a different subject

Then why was FFXI on live? You can play with PC, and PS2 people with that MMO.

MS is slowly learning to play nice with others we might see it a bit more open around 2014. If they can get it together.

I still think the E3 conference was the best thing that happened to MS. Made them wake up a bit and try even harder to make great stuff for us Gamers.

It would be nice and would save me money because I have friends on both so I end up buying both consoles.
GraveLord  +   484d ago
There's a difference between a marketing deal and console fanboyism. Thank You Bungie.
Nocando  +   483d ago
Then why say anything at all? It's not like this was a burning question.
