For Sony, Destiny is the first-party PlayStation 4 game it needs this Christmas

Eurogamer :

"Sony is treating Bungie's first-person shooter as a first-party PlayStation game, despite it also being available on Xbox.

Sony has partnered with Destiny publisher Activision to co-market the game, and has forked out for a raft of exclusive content."

except its not a first party game and its not exclusive, so no

Blastoise1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Yeah I think thats the point lol theyre just pointing out the heavy marketing theyre putting behind this game despite it being a multiplat, also it's an interview

Could you imagine if Sony marketed the Vita as much as they did Destiny?

bouzebbal1261d ago

Sony will definitely win big with Destiny being only promoted on PS4.
Destiny bundle will sell like hot cakes, mark my words!

thereapersson1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Who cares? Microsoft treats every big-name third party game as exclusive and did so all through last gen. When it's Sony's turn to flex their muscle, people get absolutely butthurt over it.

pinkcrocodile751261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Sony gets to show off with Destiny and then Microsoft get to unzip and show off with CoD AW with the same deal. It's just business as usual, nothing new.

Everyone knows it's available on both brands. I've bought it, it should arrive today...

I just hope it's not sh1t! I've not played any of the beta. I'll eaither love it or shove it on the shelf and carry on with Forza...

My personal favourites to come;

MCC
FH2
Driveclub
Bloodborn
Quantum Break (Just awesome)
SSOD
Shadows of Mordor
Unity
Witcher 3
Alien Isolation

Personally with or without exclusive game, the PS4 is going to sell very well during christmas because it's the console to have. i hope sony have figured out the way to triple their production.

Webbyy1261d ago

Sony cannot afford to lose momemtum with Halo Master chief collection around the corner. In all honesty. sony do not have a big major game after destiny. I would say driveclub and little big planet. after that nothing major according to me. I hope the destiny hype does not die out for the holiday or else sony might lose some momemtum.

Gamble201261d ago

Sony will not lose momentum because of some remastered Halo games. They have survived and increased their lead despite essentially a 20% price cut by their rival, plus some major games (ie Titanfall, although some argue that was a very minor flop) releasing exclusively. MCC will simply be another great software offering amongst many software offerings. Sony will be fine.

nX1261d ago

A girl I know actually thought that you can play Destiny only on PS4 (not even PS3) so yeah, that marketing seems to work to some degree.

Well I don't know about anyone else but all my biggest anticipations are all multi-platform. Dragon age inquisition my top one, Far cry 4. Lords of the fallen. The only exclusive really is Kingdom hearts 2.5

starchild1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Totally agree. From now through February almost all of my most anticipated games are multiplatform.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (PC exclusive for now but will be coming to PS4 sometime down the road)
Alien Isolation
Shadow of Mordor
Ryse (PC version)
Lords of the Fallen
AC Unity
Dragon Age Inquisition
Far Cry 4
The Witcher 3
The Order 1886

Only one exclusive on my list and that doesn't come until February. If I had an Xbox One I would get that Master Chief Collection too. Other than that they're all multi platform games.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1261d ago

Kingdom hearts 2.5 is on ps3 though

thereapersson1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Great list of games you have there, Starchild! Nice to see you're giving Ryse a second chance via the PC version, even though the added detail and technical overhead can't help a bland gameplay experience.

theshredded1261d ago

U have Lords of the Fallen & Dragon Age listed but no BloodBorne or even Zelda?hipster

You'll have to explain it much slower to TC...

Ops, nevermind... It's that site. They knew they were wrong when posted it.

Killzoner991261d ago

It really is like a first party game . The PS4 version is definitive and blows the Xbone version out of the water with exclusive content. I see this selling 5 million by Christmas on PS4.

tgunzz1261d ago

What's the exclusive content?

The_KELRaTH1261d ago

Exclusive to PS4/PS3
Exodus Blue - multiplayer map
Dust Palace Strike - co-op level
2 exclusive weapons
3 sets of armour
3 ships

Galletto31261d ago

The strike mission (and maybe multiplayer map) is the only thing people will be lamenting about.

The rest are items that will become useless by level 20 or replaced by much cooler legendaries

Why o why1261d ago

Damn..... I just wanted horse armour :(

PCBOX1261d ago

Poor fanboy Destiny lookin 2x better on Xbox One.Poor Sony they have no Money to invest first Party games and calling a multiplat game an exclusive game.Pathetic People realy.

Thank God I have an Xbox.The best console of all times.

Caffo011261d ago

"Destiny lookin 2x better on Xbox One"??

LOL
please name a single game that looks better on xbone than on ps4...

CernaML1261d ago

^He'll need to hit up Jesse Pinkman for a pound of blue sky first.

Fkhalf161261d ago

hahaha nice joke there mate.

Caffo011261d ago

and you also have lot of people agreeing with you!!
i always wondered how some people is able to use a pc and comment in articles like this despite being blind..

guyman1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

The dumbassery is overwhelming: :"waaaaa (crying) my toys are 2x better than yours"

This type of attitude is why the 360 had almost no exclusives for 3 years. The fanbase were happy with multiplats and timed exclusives...

I'm sure you were one of those people bashing the 360 for this based on your comment here, so why is this suddenly acceptable?

Spotie1261d ago

Except Sony isn't like that, and never has been. Your worries are unfounded because the two companies have different philosophies. Even when Sony did have all the third party exclusives, that never made them slack up on creating their own works.

Paprika1261d ago

Must we always resort to this.....

Kayant1261d ago

Co-Marketing it works.

Kurisu1261d ago

Stupid title. Sure it will help PS4 sell but why say it's first party when it clearly isn't.

Fkhalf161261d ago

He's talking about the marketing strategy behind Destiny, nearly everything about Destiny has the PS4 on it so casuals will see it as a PS4 exclusive and not bother to check. SONY has heavily marketed Destiny for PS4 especially the Glacier White console bundle.
