Activision Didn't Say Destiny Will Be the "Best-Selling Game in History" but "Best-Selling New IP"

During the earnings call for investors and analysts held today by Activision Blizzard, the company's CEO Bobby Kotick made a bold statement about the upcoming shooter by Bungie Destiny, but it was misquoted by several outlets, mentioning that he said that he expects it to be the best-selling game in history. The real quote was still bold, but not THAT bold.

Well, that's more believable.

vishmarx898d ago

thats still smug.
as great as it may be ,the high sales of destiny would be largely due to the fact that its the first fps from halo creators that isnt exclusive.
to a lot of people this is the true halo 4.
i mean same dev
same genre
similar setting (sci fi,planets,aliens and whatnot)
seemingly amaizng online

But its still completely possible. With a extremely large last gen base and next gen base that is already over 8 million in less than 3 months. It wont be out for quite some time and has more than 500k preorders already. It has no direct competition when it launches and it will be extremely polished by the time it hits.

It's not smug it's probably going to be true it's on all platforms on current gen and last gen, it's from bungie, the game looks good.

mediate-this898d ago

Lol. To you it maybe the true halo 4... Even though master chief or cortana are not in the game and... Destiny is a mmorpg. But yeah its a true halo 4.

What a asinine thing to say, this is destiny, halo is halo, it is who we think they are. Lol

CrossingEden898d ago

You say that this is this is smug yet delude yourself into thinking that Destiny is the true Halo 4, dat logic. -_-

I can believe this. Based on the fact that it is coming to more consoles (and coming to the most-popular 8th gen console) I think this has a chance to sell quite a lot. Activision knows how to market a game. They know how to sell a game. People want an online-focused game? I think Destiny will be the first next-gen shooter to really pull it off in a big way.

Plus, it has a campaign and I believe it's playable offline. Always a bonus.

Do not understand the hype behind this game.

Looks decidedly average.

Bolts-N-Rays1109898d ago (Edited 898d ago )

A hybrid of Halo, Borderlands, and Mass Effect is average? What games do you enjoy then?

hellzsupernova898d ago

To be fair from what we have seen the gameplay doesn't look all that exciting, however the lore and worlds look fascinating and will draw me into this game

Salooh898d ago

Don't like halo nor Mass effect. So that shows why i'm not excited for this game but still see why people love it. I'm buying it day one though , i will give it a chance since you can run in this game lol.

spicelicka898d ago

"looks decidedly average"

That's the best thing, it doesn't rely on unnecessary explosive trailers and cinematic footage to show itself off. It looks average but looks don't do it any justice. If you're a big halo fan, and understand what they're trying to achieve here the hype will only come then.

I don't blame you though, try it when it comes out and you'll see what i mean (assuming it's not a complete failure which just isn't possible because bungie is amazing).

chrissx898d ago

I certainly like the looks of destiny more than titanfall

BitbyDeath898d ago

No split-screen co-op no buy.

WildArmed898d ago

was surprised by this choice too.

Bungie has been a big supporter of split-screen in the past (with up to 4 players at a time!)

MysticStrummer898d ago

If last gen is anything to go by, you won't be buying many games if split screen co-op is a must for you.

BitbyDeath898d ago (Edited 898d ago )

Single player games with stories are fine. (Like The Order) but if I was to buy a game like this with no story then i'd probably go the division instead.

MysticStrummer898d ago

Destiny does appear to have a story, but it's hard to say at this point how in depth it is. We'll see.
