You do understand those are not nearly the same thing right?

That page was a mistake by sony that bragged about the game being 1080p/60 fps. In fact they afterwards silently removed it.

This is simply a listing of the video output. ALL PS4 games have a video output in 1080p, because the console upscales every game to 1080p regardless of the native resolution. Exactly the same wording can be found on the listings for Battlefield 4 or Watch_Dogs, that have 900p native rez.

That was news. This isn't.

Destiny will be amazing on the PS4. I hope the player count is increased though.

Lilrizky1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

Really? i thought BF4 was 1080?

Edit: sorry just googled it. you're right

The videos I've seen of Destiny made it look so much like Halo. It just makes you wonder why they insisted on moving on from developing Halo games, only to develop a halo game with a different name.

The stuff I watched looked a bit more dreary than Master Chief's world, until they got oustide to see the skyline. Then it screamed "BUNGIE!" at my eyes.

Well the good news is that we have already seen this game running on console, and no matter what the final resolution is, it looks great, and it's another one of my "must haves" this year. It is funny the way they are wording it though "output", most likely seems that it will be 900 upscaled, but time will tell...either way like I said it looks awesome. The part I found MOST strange however is saying "1080p 'Native' display" I have never heard anyone use that phrase before, it's almost like they are purposely playing with the "key words" for marketing purposes.

Again, I'm so ready for this's gonna be awesome. Now let's see if all the same people that ripped TF for being 6 vs 6 will stick to their guns and rip this game a new one for being capped at 12? In my personal opinion for TF 6v6 is the perfect number and based on what I've seen of this game it looks like it'll be the same. It's probably a choice more than a limitation.

Watch Dogs PS4 = 900p 30fps
Watch Dogs XB1 = 792p 30fps

Watch Dogs PC = 1080p, 1200p 1440p 1600p and 4K @ 60+fps

And why so much watch Dogs on a Destiny article? lol

AKissFromDaddy1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

I read it but I hope it's more players. Only 12 players would be disheartening to me if Destiny has competitive multiplayer. More than 12 would be appealing. At least 16.

modesign1671d ago

12 pvp, haha so much for MMO.

torchic1671d ago


why don't people realise this? Bungie are always really reluctant to call it an MMO. it has MMO like features but is not an MMO!

AKissFromDaddy1670d ago

Ohhh, I get it.

Just like it's not a FPS. It has FPS like features but is not an FPS. lol.

kopicha1670d ago


Did you realized that you make yourself look really stupid with that comparison? It only show a few things. First you dont know enough about Destiny. Secondly you dont even know the correct definition of MMO. Destiny is definitely not a MMO althou they have certain features in place that makes it looks as if it is one. But the actual fact it is clearly not one. It is like Diablo 3 plays like MMO too. But the fact is it is not either. I have seen and heard so much people trying to call that game a MMO when clearly it is not. And you are just like those "people".

AKissFromDaddy1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

Agreed, I am one of those "people" lol

A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO and MMOG) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting large numbers of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet. MMOs usually have at least one persistent world, however some games differ. These games can be found for most network-capable platforms, including the personal computer, video game console, or smartphones and other mobile devices.

Is this right? Are these MMO "features"? Does Destiny work like this or not? ^_^

Zichu1671d ago

I bet we won't see people complaining about this, yet they complained about the player count in Titanfall...

Destiny looks amazing anyway. Definitely getting it day 1. Might get the CE if it gets announced.

hello121671d ago

Titanfall is all action no need go any higher than 8vs8,

Respawn preferred 6vs6 and there small maps mostly. If they player count was any higher in Titanfall it would not play well at all.

The problem this generation Sony is holding back the x box 1

Every third party game developer, either has to provide their own dedicated servers, for games, or don't use them at all.

X box fans will have to deal with player hosting because Sony can't provide them.

Sevir1671d ago

So is the why Battlefield on PS4 has 64 players, or Killzone Shadow Fall supports 24 players, or why Ghost supports 18 players on PS4 because Sony's network is holding back XBO? Lmao GTFOH with that ridiculous fanboy claim. It is Simply a design choice from the developer, not something mandated by Sony's netcode...

Last I remember, the PS3 had games with 32, 40, 60, 128, and a whopping 250 players online simultaneously!

They aren't holding anyone back, Developers choose what's the best for their games. You are just a crazy fanboy grasping at straws trying to perpetuate your delusionist conspiracy theories.

Xsilver1671d ago

with your dumb logic planetSide 2 shouldn't be able to be on PS4 since Sony is holding us back but oh wait it is coming to PSN so go somewhere with your BS.

D3ATH_DRIV3R_7771671d ago

You really sound stupid, really! what r u, 12? that sounded so dumb. I never heard such idiomatical things before. Sony is holding back the X1? gimme a break! there's no way sony is holding back the X1, you sound ridiculous, and that's impossible that they're holding them back, X1 is holding the PS4 back due to weak hardware in it, so you can kill that noise.
On topic, if it's 12v12, then i'm fine with it. If not, IMO it might be like
BF4 or something, idk!

MasterCornholio1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )

If I want to play with games with player counts of over 1000 players I have PlanetSide 2 for that which is coming out for PS4.

Tell me knws why doesn't the Xbox One have any multiplayer games with such massive player counts? This is why I fail to see why PSN is holding XBL back.

The thing is Destiny can have up to 50+ people in the world in public events ( as said by deej) without any technical problems, this is most likely just for balancing purposes that limit is their for our enjoyment. Same for Titanfall

Stapleface1671d ago

I doubt people would complain about that, but that's not the discussion. They are talking about 12 people in all in the same match. Though I believe 12 vs 12 would still be too low. At least aim for 32 vs 32. Even that number is low if this is supposed to be an MMO.

GarrusVakarian1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

Does this mean that there will be a competitive PvP mode (in a limited area, just like any other MP FPS) with 12 players max....or is it saying each free-roam server will be 12 players max?

I'm confused. But i really hope it's not the latter.

Stapleface1671d ago

IDK Lukas. But I'm right there with you, I really hope it's not the later in your statement. If it's just limited areas for a competitive PVP mode it would be fine. But if it's the free-roam servers that would be terrible.

Shadonic1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

It's more of an Always online shooter than an MMO, It takes things from MMO's like raids and stuff but its not one. I mean by your logic watch dogs could in a since be an MMO or dark souls. Besides they said they could have up to 50+ people in public events but then that would 9/10 just retract from your experience of feeling important and challenged.

Stapleface1671d ago

@Shadonic Hey I'm not the one who generalized it as an MMO, that was Bungie. I don't really see it as that either, but if what they are going for is in fact an MMO like experience, they are going to need more than 12 players on screen. I didn't put any of "my logic" into that statement, just going by what the game has been stated to be. None of that was me coming to my own conclusions.
