Gamescom 2014: Destiny is the Most Pre-Ordered New IP in Gaming History

CraveOnline: "Destiny has been regarded as the biggest game of 2014 by many. Its pre-orders follow that theme of popularity.

GameStop has confirmed with Activision that Destiny is the “most pre-ordered new IP in gaming history”. There are already over one-million pre-orders alone, and the PS4 version takes up a bulk of those orders." (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Very impressive.

Bungie is killing it!
BiggerBoss  +   545d ago
They deserve it. I put tons of hours into the beta and can't wait till the game releases. People will downplay anything that's popular, but Idc, I'm hella excited for Destiny

Wow one million pre-orders impressive, whose next?

Off Topic: I bet Star Wars Battlefront 3 devastates by smashing that total imo.
FamilyGuy  +   545d ago
1 million pre-orders *for a new IP* is impressive. Key part of that statement is the new IP part.
objdadon  +   545d ago
And when exactly is this battlefront 3 coming out???? Two totally different games anyway! Hate on but I'll be there 9/9/14!
RantandRave  +   545d ago
I have Destiny pre-ordered!


I understand it is a new IP. Thanks for reaffirming though.


There was no hate, there was only a comment and it was based on opinion. The only hate I noticed was your pointless response to my opinionated comment.

This is big. Seriously can't wait to waste my time with this!

THIS BLOWS MY MIND. It's just hard to believe. Good for Bungie though.

Congrats on the success.
I'm still not into pre-ordering myself, but that's cool news.

I will be adding to this total later this week when I pre-order the digital Guardian Edition on my PS4. Already have a lot of my clan mates ready for this game to come out.
Letthewookiewin  +   545d ago
Boom already done.

people will pre-order hype.

Probably the same people that worshipped Halo and Call of Duty.

If anyone has played this game AND any other decent shooter, destiny is nothing spectacular. I played for one full day the first day the beta was released on ps4, not impressed at all.

And I was this close to pre-ordering on the ps store as soon at it was announced, before the beta was out. I'm glad I waited to try it first.
objdadon  +   545d ago
Well being as though everyone had a chance to play the beta I'd say we've passed the preorder because of hype phase. But who am i to use common sense?
cr33ping_death  +   545d ago
Pre-ordered?... check
2 weeks vacation scheduled starting sept 8?...check
GF has her White PS4 destiny bundle pre-ordered?... check.
ready to continue tearing it up in The Crucible? you betcha ;)
objdadon  +   545d ago
Lol! I did the same thing! Put in for two weeks off! I'm so ready!
bonafide732  +   545d ago
Wish this game all the best. Actually took my money off this game and bought the last of US remastered may see me back on Destiny May not. But I wish Bungie the Best with this game.
--Onilink--  +   545d ago
great that the 1st expansion is also coming up relatively fast, should help keep up the momentum through the holidays. Hopefully its big enough in terms of content too, since im going with the Digital Guardian edition, im expecting a lot from those 2 expansions
OtakuDJK1NG-Rory  +   545d ago
Okay! That say much being on 5 platform with easily over 200m users
Codewow  +   545d ago
Be ready for one week of down time after launch due to the major cluster f*** of connection attempts.
BludoDaSmelly  +   545d ago
Tried the alpha. World seem dead outside of groups of ai enemies. For console players it's probably interesting but having played mmos i found nothing new with it. Ready for the division.
TRD4L1fe  +   545d ago
Bungie is the best, this game is gonna have some record breaking sales.
