Hopefully some of these features (text chat!) can make it into the console versions too.

I hope consoles can do 60fps!

uptownsoul90d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Scorpio & Pro will only do 60fps if the 8th gen launch consoles do 60fps. Unless Bungie dials other aspects of the game back on the vanilla consoles then I don't see 60fps on consoles.

So this seems like a game where Scorpio & Pro's power will probably go under-utilized.

@uptown

What about 4k or near 4k resolution on Scorpio and Pro?

GUTZnPAPERCUTZ90d ago

I mean it is pretty much the Halo Engine, which we know can run 60 on Xbox, but I think the effects and res would suffer if they pushed it :/

morganfell90d ago

Actually it isn't the HALO engine. And as it is that engine most likely belongs to Microsoft.

People that are playing on the pro are saying it's at 30 frames.

And yet on pc nobody cares if you play 30, 40, 50, 60, 120 or 144 fps, nobody cares that having 21:9 is huge advantage + fov slider, now on pc if you want to be competitive you need to have at least 100 fps 21:9 screen with lowest input lag possible, on console you are equal, on pc even blizz don't care, you need to pay a lot.

moldybread90d ago

Any online competitive mode has to play at parity on the PS4, not sure what Microsoft plans to do with Scorpio. Very happy about PC support, never played the first one so I hope it's easy to get into.

joab77790d ago

Pretty sure Pro and Scorpio will have 60fps option.

Kingthrash36090d ago

Never.. unless the base ps4,xbo can do it.

objdadon90d ago

60fps ain't happening on consoles because of og ps4 and og Xbox one.

KillBill90d ago

To all those talking parity with PS4 and Xbox One on FPS. Sorry but no such requirement for frame parity. MS has already stated even that some Scorpio games will allow added ability to choose greater FPS for some games if the Devs decide to do so.

KillBill90d ago (Edited 90d ago )

@Morganfell - thanks for the link. At first read you see that they did in fact change most everything from the original Blam engine for Halo but if you read down into the slide show you get to a point where they come out with a fascinating discovery of information...

"** Wait a minute … Halo Reach is being developed in parallel and it doesn’t have a
job system. That would be really helpful to take better advantage of the X360’s
computing power.
So, we decided to integrate the whole Tiger engine, such as it was, back into Halo
Reach. This replaced the foundation layer underneath the engine, and enabled us to
use the job system for a few targeted purposes. We ended up converting the
animation system and part of our object physics simulation to use it.
** So this tech shipped 4 years before the rest of Destiny, in 2010!"

...which basically it talks on the fact all that new engine got brought back into Halo Reach. So technically the premise it is the same as Halo engine isn't that far from fact in this aspect of discovery.

Looks like consoles will be locked at 30, they mention PS4 Pro. I imagine Scorpio will also be 30fps but probably native 4k.

Christopher90d ago

Looks like 30fps. Scorpio is undetermined, but I think it unlikely.

I'm surprised they are hitting 4k30fps on Pro and that should make Sony happy since that's what they want out of their machine.

Text chat should have been in for Destiny but they always said it wasn't an mmo. I think this gen, especially with PC they should focus on more mmo aspects like social activities etc.

They are taking the PC serious and that's a great sign!

Sono42190d ago

Wow this is great news! Now PC gamers can grind in 4k! and then once they grind for that loot they've been trying to get they can grind for more loot! IN 4K! omg the future is here everyone! BUT WAIT! There's more! When they release the DLC they can buy that so the game can actually have a story and then have 2 new areas to grind in! Omg so hyped for Destiny 2 DLC (aka the complete game)

Sono42190d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Oh I almost forgot to mention the best part! Once the DLC drops all that loot you grinded for becomes basically useless, but don't worry! You have new loot to grind for! Game of the Year confirmed!

steveo12345690d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Or they could stick up the finger and not buy it at all seeing as they didn't release the first one on pc

sinspirit90d ago

I hope to be able to play with console friends with my PC. I have Destiny 1 on PS4. But, I love my ultrawide PC setup. I would assume ranked, or possibly all competitive MP would be limited to the platform you're on though.

I wouldn't mind Pro support to some degree for the PS4.

Festano91d ago

That was confirmed on stage by Activision CEO but it was guaranteed anyway, he even thanked Sony...

Neonridr91d ago (Edited 91d ago )

yeah I heard him thanking Sony for donating all the Pro's to play the game on for those in attendance, but I didn't hear him say anything about enhanced visuals for the Pro itself. But good news if true.

GUTZnPAPERCUTZ90d ago

Hopefully 1080p and 60, or whatever they can push will be welcomed, maybe 4k-30 too!

KwietStorm90d ago

That was the most obvious promotional statement possible. He said nothing about actual game enhancements like 60fps.

slate9191d ago

I just want 60fps on my new scorpio!

Neonridr90d ago

60fps for shooters is always welcomed.. especially for the crucible side of things.

Septic90d ago

Only racers can have 60fps?

corroios90d ago

Septic

There is a HUGE diference on a racer running at 60 frames and a game like Destiny running at 60 frames and at 4k.

Even for PC the specs will be very high.

KwietStorm90d ago

And?
