Recently an article got a lot of hate for stating it hopes that Destiny fails for the good of the gamers. This ridiculous notion is dissected by Lazygamer.net
I'm still not sure about Destiny. I don't like the idea of any game failing, but it sure seems like a ton of money to invest in new IP.
Given it's for the full IP it's not that bad. The game was for a long time in development, plus marketing and they will need a lot of servers.
I have faith in Bungie, I know it'll be good as long as Activision won't screw it up. On topic: No need to explain "why hoping destiny will fail is idiotic". It's just plain wrong to hope for a game to fail, why hate? It won't benefit you.
Agreed. I mean there are plenty of games with 50 million dollar budgets so 500 over ten years really isn't a huge amount imo. I also agree with the success of this being able to alleviate pressure
@moonstormer So it bothers you that they spent a ton of their own money on a new IP??? LMAO The Alpha was amazing, enjoyed every minute of it. People wanting it to fail is largely political. Think PS4, rather than it having anything to do with Bungie/Activision. If Destiny was Xbox One exclusive, they would scream it's the best thing ever!! ...Destiny makes Halo irrelevant. Thank you Bungie!!!
Destiny makes Halo irrelevant despite being on both consoles. How can Halo compete with the people who created it and half a billion dollars?
I think it's important that Activision has another pillar on which to lean, as Call of Duty's prominence will surely falter. Activision can't keep relying on COD and Blizzard.
I want Destiny to succeed, it looks amazing. I mean just look at these day and night cycles! http://n4g.com/news/1538308... THEY are amazing!!.....I sorta have a thing for skys in games, and these are some of the best by far. Beyond that Bungie is putting so much love into this game, how could you want it to fail? Cause some DLC?Pleassee. It's just some mediocre guns, who cares.
$500 million investment over ten years? With that kind of cash, Destiny needs to succeed, and I so want it to. The Alpha was amazing!
The Alpha indeed was pretty good, loved it.
That moment when people write articles to rebut another article. I agree with the premise but still.
I have to agree, normally I'd ignore it entirely but it got a lot of traction here and then hours later no one seemed to have voiced the other side... Call it my civic duty ;)
Destiny really looks awesome. Had a blast with the aplha. Looks like it will do ok
Destiny will be a hit.. It incorporates the three major factors hardcore gamers love. 1. Its an RPG 2.Its an MMO 3. Competitive Multiplayer All three equals instant success..
I don't think the question is whether it appeases to hardcore games, they're pretty safe there and a lot of the people in the Alpha were of the hardcore group. I think most people's worries stem to how the casual group will respond to Destiny. It's an amazing game based off the Alpha, so I think it will be well received, but I could understand their questioning it.
the graphics sucks on this game and also boring
does this statement have anything to do with you being a "PC gamer"? with the quotes I mean a PC gamer with a HP desktop.
haha very funny clown
I will wait for PC gamers to make a new petition for this game when it comes out. HAHA
They secretly want Destiny to fail simply because it comes a distant 2nd to the PS4 version, with the extra content that is PS4 Exclusive 'til fall 2015 ;) By their dumb logic, all Xbox One versions of MultiPlat games will fail also. It's okay though... Xbox One has better media options and gets firmware more regularly than PS4! Xbox One wins!!! LMAO! /s
who's even talking about xbox besides you?
The original article was rubbish, it talked about all the merchandise xbox fans had bought keeping bungie going. It was very badly thought out and bitter sounding argument. The game looks good (I missed out on the Alpha) so I'm looking forward to trying out the beta in a few weeks time. Most of the feed back was postive so I'm looking forward to formulating my own opinion which is the only one that counts at the end of the day.
Glad someone called bullshit on that article. Whether you genuinely like or hate the game, that was just a shitty piece of game journalism
With 500 million going down the drain, I'm just slightly concerned that they won't resort to near game-breaking or annoying micro transactions to try and make profit.
Allocated, not down the drain. 500 mill over 10 years, 50 mill a year. Thats just a slightly over the odds budget for an annual franchise. They've been pretty open about trying to stay away from subscription and micro transactions. I could maybe see it coming in as a cosmetic thing, but wouldn't be too worried about game breaking
They are talking about keeping this game going for 10 years and consistently adding to it the whole time. Don't think for one second that all of the add on content will be free. Im fairly certain this game will have micro transactions. I dont mind either way, to be honest.
@corndogburglar The ip is going for 10 years, not this one game. The idea apparently is destiny this year, expansion next, destiny 2 the following year, then expansion the next and so on
the alpha was a blast so the beta is going to be fun, i just hope that since there is going to be more players we will get to keep our progress. Everyone who got it preordered will be playing so that would make sense right?
