Xbox nailed it at gamescom this year!

They did a great job and Scalebound is one of my most anticipated games next year after seeing that gameplay. 2016 is shaping up to be a huge year for gamers!

A lot of people are not happy about the current legendary weapons becoming obsolete once The Taken King arrives. Hopefully Bungie has some similar weapons that people can receive via rewards for Raids or from loot drops. 20M guardians and 2 billion hours played suggest Destiny will continue to thrive as long as the content featured in The Taken King is substantial enough to keep people grinding through the winter months.

Until it's unleashed upon the masses, it's unproven as to how effective it'll be. I think in time, it'll be cool but I'm keeping my expectations in check for now.
