Destiny‘s beta was extremely successful, and the game is now speeding towards its release on September 9th, but on what platforms will people play? A reddit-base survey with 1250 respondents tried to answer that question.
Destiny is going to be HUGE on all platforms. Come September it's going to be the all formats No.1 for a good few weeks, maybe even through to the Christmas holidays. Playstation platforms will definately benefit with the PS3/PS4 Destiny Bundles going into the holiday season. There are very few games that can really challenge Destiny for Multiplayer space this year. FIFA 15 might unseat it in September - at least in teh UK; and GTA V might unseat it in October (although I'm not so sure); COD:Advance Warfare may knock it down a few pegs in November, even though at the moment Destiny is tracking higher pre-order numbers than COD:AW (to be expected as COD:AW doesn't release for another 3 months). I think Destiny is also tracking higher pre-order numbers than Watchdogs did pre-release. The Destiny Beta numbers are certainly higher than the watchdogs pre-order numbers at this point. It will be interesting to see which game will come out as the Christmas all formats No.1.
What I believe is if this survey becomes a reality than maybe devs and publishers should move on to this generation and stop with cross generation games. That way it will yield better results utilizing this generation hardware to it's fullest potential. Because Destiny is a really good game but it's not exactly a graphical beast and makes me wonder how different the AI, physics, mechanics, and especially the graphics, might have been if only made for this generation hardware.
You're right. Assassin's Creed Rogue should be pretty awesome.
These will be the real numbers. PS4 55% xb180 25% PS3 7% XB360 13%
Thank you. http://i.telegraph.co.uk/mu...
Makes sense honestly. Xbox One owners have a variety of shooters to play this fall - including not one, but FOUR Halo titles. As soon as MCC and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare release, Destiny players on Xbox One will be damn near ghost. PS4 owners are actually really looking forward to this title. And have to for some time. Me personally, I didn't really see the hype behind Destiny. Why would anyone choose that over Halo?
Loot drops, special gear, fully customizable "loadout", leveling up, it's new, open world, the storyline, it's Bungie and they aren't making Halo, some people don't like Halo, dance emoting. Why do they have to choose one over the other anyway? You make it sound like playing Destiny = giving up the ability to play Halo.
@Blaze929, Planet Side 2 will also be dropping for PS4, and CoD:AW also available for PS4. I really dont see PS4 "lacks" shooters...
Because its actually made by the people that made Halo great in the first place and Halo is played out.
50% vs 32%. Can you believe that fps sells better on the ps4 now? This gen ps4 seems to excel in every aspect of gaming. Good job.
You also have to consider that there are a ton more PS4 out there than Xbox Ones.
There's a good reason why there are a ton more PS4s' than Xbox Ones. PS4s' are flying of the shelves like hot cakes.
Obviously. Gaming usually requires you to be able to read. If you can read and you're not an absolute idiot, you bought a PS4
@die_fiend " If you can read and you're not an absolute idiot, you bought a PS4" So you didn't buy a PS4 then?
Yeah, that would be the obvious lol.... /shakeshead /rolleyes
Something is wrong b/c Bungee doesn't want the large majority of players to be next gen...or they r not gonna sell as many copies.
It's been marketed more heavily on current gen platforms, higher install base doesn't always mean higher sales, I am sure Gearbox will learn this lesson with the Pre-Sequel :)
You have to be quite the enthusiast to be visiting a reddit poll about the game. Enthusiasts have the newer consoles. I think sales are generally leaning towards the ps4 and One gen now (per ubisoft's watch dogs numbers) but not by as big a margin as the poll indicates.
Yea, I remember sony fanboys saying that they were above playing FPS games. Even though the PS3 had more exclusive FPS games and Call of Duty was always the number one game on PS3. @Below Every sony fanboy said that! the console war has given you amnesia. Every Sony fanboy said the Xbox was the FPS home while Sony fanboys enjoyed other genres more. Which was false since all of the FPS games were number one and popular on PS3. It was just part of their (many) excuses for them when explaining why one of their non-FPS exclusives didn't sell well.
No sony fanboy ever said that....This console war has rotted your brain...
I will for the life of me never understand why some people don't get that NOT everyone who chose PS4 was a Sony fanboy. I was an Xbox fanboy, I chose PS4. (own both tho)
So... you DO realize that both can be done, right? Sony fans can buy more of a given shooter and STILL buy more of other genres. I know it's hard for some- you- to grasp, but it's extremely easy for both things to be true.
@Spotie Except for the part that most sony fanboys came on this site to proclaim they hated FPS games (especially CoD), and said sony wasn't the home for that genre even though as I have said over and over FPS games has always been number ONE on their system. I love your comments Spotie, not only do they make no point to any previous reference given, but there is so much anger behind that 100% bottom brain logic.
I wish that just once, when someone makes a claim that "every or most of x or y fanboy" said something, that he or she would provide some empirical evidence to support that claim. I can't imagine gangsta_red actually compiled such a list. You can't just look at a handful of comments and claim that those comments represent any significant percentage of a group.
"Every sony fanboy said that!" smh
Didnt know you knew every sony "fanboy"
Did you know I play CoD? I also play Disgaea, Tales, Kingdom Hearts and a shit ton of othergames from different genres. It might be difficult for you to comprehend this but it's possible to play fps games and still like other genres which is the point. The PlayStation user base is more diverse in its tastes. Just look at it, the xb1 is getting a new IP this holiday yet most of you only talk about the Halo collection. There's a reason there are so many 3rd party exclusives especially jrpgs on ps3.
Gangsta Red I hate CoD with a passion but I really enjoy Halo and Destiny. I don't dislike FPS I dislike crappy FPS like CoD. @Pro_tactx - actually you can take a small percentage or handful and make a judgement, that is exactly what surveys and statistic do.
Also don't forget that sony have that timed exclusive content and the advertising deal which pushes the ps4 version
@big-finger lol the shooting part of destiny is below average at best. no one is coming to play destiny because its a awesome shooter. its the loot, armor, leveling up ect that makes destiny interesting. i mean cmon on you played it. bf4 craps all over destiny as a shooter. its the same on ps3 as it is on ps4. im sorry, but to me thats disappointing. lmfao all these people with new next gen ps4s hyped up about playing a last gen game. smfh 50% on ps4? propaganda!!!!! lol what about the 150 million plus, that are 360 and ps3? nice try. im not hyped about anything 360 or ps3 these days. putting it on a next gen console wont fool me. if you would have left next gen in the past, destiny could have been the future. destiny doesn't even belong in a next gen discussion.
It will be PS4 but first it needs to hit the sales bin. Destiny is a solid and very good shooter but I wanted a more MMORPG shooter game. Therefore I can play it when it's getting cheaper ^^ and yeah I'm a single player type of gamer :D Fallout 3 MMO would be a dream come true ...
You know that it will get many more features as time comes. If u love mmo's, u know that u need to get in from the jump.
Bungie is avoiding the term MMO for a good reason because it is not really a MMO. It just borrows some elements. Features may come but the whole game does not feel like a MMORPG at all. It's just like visiting maps and do this do that and go back to the tower. The exploration feel gets lost very fast. I don't see this change anytime soon. They deliver a fast paced fun shooter but not a MMO where you can be sucked in for days to come. It probably isn't meant to be a MMO in the first place.
So what are the missing 2% playing it on?
VITA? :-/ Oh wait that's Borderlands 2...
2% = pc gamers waiting anxiously
2% will beg for a WiiU port.
I know this is wrong but I laughed.
What do you mean "will" they already are crying about it not being on Wii U. At this point it should just be called the Nintendo player.
No PC :( .. Some of us can't afford a console
I'm assuming you're joking, because if you can afford to keep a decent gaming PC up to date then you should have no problem affording a console
Its not as black and white as that. Almost every household needs a PC. He might be a in position to have a PC (decent gaming PC's don't cost millions like some here like to state) plus afford some upgrades (or his household PC came with a decent GPU, processor etc).
Yeah, because everyone can afford to throw down $450(price for PS4 in my area) at once for a console. It's not like me or any other pc gamer saved up for weeks to catch different parts on sale or used. You and everyone else who disagreed with me and agreed with you need to get your heads out out of your asses and think about everyone else.
Rumoured for about March. It's been seen in steam db already, and Activision pretty much acknowledge it makes sense. But I'll be xboxing it in September, because playing with friends is better than playing with more pixels.
Lol! Considering that more people played on PS4 and PS3 than XBO and XB360 I'm pretty sure that point you made is null. You can play with friends or join in a stranger's party and play too. I'll take that plus more pixels on PS4. :)
Null how? How many people play a particular version does not change the fact that my own friends are playing on the xbox version, so I will play there. I wasn't trying to imply that the One version was the best version. Incidentally, the PS4 and One versions both have the same number of pixels. About 25% of the number my PC would render the game in. Capiche?
Doesn't matter what platform it's played, it will be a huge game. Something that may rival call of duty in terms of sales. I can't wait to play it again, but good thing I have the last of us.
It will not rival COD, casual gamers and hardcore gamers play COD. Casual gamers will not pick up Destiny like they have done COD.
unfortunately ur right
Half if not more of the XB1 players will leave Destiny come November anyway. XB1 Destiny will be a ghost town.
The beta seem lively, had no problem finding games.
Look at the ODST icon. He is talking about Halo MCC.
no it wasn't an issue, I played it on both PS4 and Xb1 and enjoyed it. MCC is coming in November and Destiny will be on the back burner for many once that hits on the XB1.
the MCC is gonna be big but people playing Destiny on XB1 wont just up and leave it, be serious.
I don't think saying that people playing Bungie's new game might leave to play Bungie's old IP is that unreasonable.
You shoulda probably threw MCC in with this comment... People are going to read it and probably take it the wrong way. I knew you were referring to the MCC immediately, but it appears 10 others (disagrees) did not. Halo MCC is going to be huge.
When are surveys gonna stop being used as news?
Well 7/10 news websites think that they're a legitimate source of information..
statistics can be used to prove anything, 90% of all people know that.
I played the beta on XB1 and wasn't really blown away. Its a nice scifi shooter, but nothing ground breaking. PS4 gamers are just starving for something to put up as the must have game for the system. IMO the Halo collection is the only game worth the day one $60 purchase. Everthing else will get purchased when they are inevitably discounted in a month or two.
I completely disagree with you about the PS4 gamers, and Halo: MCC being the only $60 day one purchase. But I completely agree with you about Destiny. I just don't get the hype at all. It's a solid game gameplay mechanics, graphics, and everything. But I don't know.
I agree I don't like it and think its really overrated. I can see why some people love it and will think is the next great one but there are to may flaws that make it a compelling co-op shooter.
With so few people playing on last gen consoles it makes me wish the devs focused on next gen only and put more resources towards upgraded graphics or framerate. I'm sure if it wasn't on last gen consoles some of that 16% would have just bought new consoles to play it. They sacrificed the visuals to appeal to 10% of customers.
im in the 32% then
Same here, good times ahead
wish i could play it on my pc, both the next consoles have sh!t graphics for this game
...but better than a screen displaying nothing, right?
I'm in the 2% :(
