CVG: Sony has welcomed Bungie's official move to multiplatform development - suggesting its new IP could become 'Halo on steroids' on PS3.
Sooo this? ;)
^lol Though I was expecting something a little more tangible here: oh well I cant wait to see what Bungie have in store.
Oh sounds like Sony got some info on Bungie's next game that they dont want to share just yet...hmmmm.....
dont think so, unless its exclusive. bungie is a talented studio and i would really like to see what they could make without a 6gb limitation
They would hope but it wont be. I doubt Bungie recreates the success of Halo with this new IP.
@drummerx2709 thats almost exactly the image that ran through my head when I read the headlines(more clothes though). Nice one. lol
Nice job pulling info out of your A$$ sony. It's multiplatform btw.
Add into the fray that the Naughty Dog PS3 devs have thanked/collaborated with Bungie and things are looking to be quite interesting...
i want one xbox because of halo but now i don't need to buy it
I may be going out on a lim here, bt I am pretty sure it will be a next gen title.
no actual game information has been confirmed so who is pulling what out of their ass now? besides, whatever game bungie makes could end up being a a 3rd party exclusive to either microsoft or sony time will tell
hing is though, once Reach is out of the way, MS will focus on this Bungie game and throw money at it, practically nurturing it like its a 360 exclusive. I'm certain of this, MS will poke its head in, with a bag of money following suit, in both hands. Will Sony do that, to make sure its version is "up to snuff"? Only time will tell and I'm just throwing that little nugget out there for whoever... Edit: My comment presented a bad time line. No one knows when this Bungie game will be gracing whatever consoles. But in case anyone missed it, here you go... http://kotaku.com/5527333/b...
Hummm... every fanboy bashes Halo... but as soon as a multiplatform game (just like halo) is announced as multiplatform ... they become happy. LOL... fanboys. EDIT: @1.13 - I have LBP for PS3, and it's a good game, but in all honesty, i don't think it deserved all the 10's it got... nor did Halo 3 deserve all the 10's it got.
And you know what would happen if Media Molecule went multiplat and their next games were on the xbox? Thats right, most of the people that bashed lbp would be watering at the mouth for whatever MM made and Microsoft would have a swift smart ass response. It goes both ways. That wont happen of course with MM being first party now but its just an example. edit I'm just saying that the global reaction would be the same no matter who went multiplat. I'm glad you enjoyed lbp though, congrats.
LMAO this is equivalent to when FFXIII went to the 360 hahahah I'll make an excepcion and I'll put myself in fanboy mode: MICROSOFT IS DOOMED ONLY GEARS IS LEFT :D:D:D::D:D:D::D:D:D:!!!!!!!!! !!!1111111111111111111111111111
This is a massive dollar deal. Activision wouldn't have gone into it with just a vague promise from Bungie, they have been SHOWN something concrete about this new IP. This means, perhaps, initial concept art, world setting, characters and more. Maybe we might get a teaser at E3...
I Hope So, Great News for Gamers... @drummerx2709 lol +1
Funny how the source said they got that quote from a Sony rep's status on twitter. Really? Is this really news worthy?
that leaves 343 to carry on the halo-esq stuff and bungie can bring ONI back to life on ps3 and fix call of duty for Activiasion since they screwed over infinity ward?
Halo is switching over to the Unreal engine?! Maybe it'll have half a chance to play in 720p. Get it? Steroids? Unreal Engine? Yeaaaa.
just nailed it... sony is pulling this info outta their ass to do exactly what easily duped people like reload just said. they made this crap up to say to all the sony owners thinking of getting a 360 for the new halo "hey, you don't need to do that cuz we'll be getting bungie's better game." and look at the agree/disagree ratio here. obviously it's working. cuz the sony fanboys think sony's words are the words of god. sony knows NOTHING of the new IP. i'm willing to bet the new IP is barely outta the brainstorming phase. no demo, not even a new engine. just sony making some junk up to do some dmg control for halo reach. and...the sad, PATHETIC thing is...it works on many of you. so if you stop and actually THINK before assuming sony isn't just implementing a marketing strategy, you'd realize a few things. the biggest one...a new game is probably 2 years away. if it's not 2 years away, it's likely just going to use the same engine they are currently using (which would sort of limit the steroidness of the game). also...if they are using the same engine...it's designed around 360 tech...so 360 would still be the lead platform. i think it's hilarious that all you sony guys for years have slammed bungie saying halo is terrible (and they are halo) and that they aren't great developers. but now that sony released one garbage statement, you suddenly support bungie...AS LONG AS they are developing something for ps3 that sony claims is better than halo. it's a joke...and it's amazing you all buy it so easy. how does it feel to apply no logic or reason in your daily life and just be a corporate slave? i imagine pretty empty. but at least you can feel good in the knowledge that you aren't alone...there are millions of you...unfortunately. @lelo: exactly...bubble @danteh: no, for that to happen, we'd have to see hundreds of 360 fanboys threatening to kill themselves over the news. lol. give me a break. and you make it sound like ps3 is getting the halo ip...that's not true. but the words were chosen carefully just to dupe silly ppl into buying into it.
It sounds to me that Sony will try to be the promoter of this title. Hmmm now, this where we gamers can separate the real gamers from the not real gamers. How you ask? Now I'm sure many of you will buy this Bungie game if it looks good and since it's Bungie you should know that it will have a great amount of quality in gameplay and graphics. So the test is who, other than many of us, will recognize the Title because Bungies name? Think about it. How many people know Bungie's name? I mean really. other than us.
Bungie isnt halo, I know marathon is pretty much halo, but that statement is wrong. PS3 fans slammed halo not Bungie. If they made a game that was better than halo why would they not like it, because its better? Some people can hate companies and still buy their games, like all the people who boycotted MW2 but went out and bought it anyway. I dont have anything against Bungie but I hate Activision and I wont support this game because they are involved. So I guess you are a real spy because you seem to know that sony is just making things up. Let me know when the last guardian is shipping then. Thanks.
You don't have to be a marketing major to see how deliberate this statement was. there was a very intended meaning here. and reload expressed it perfectly with this comment: "i want one xbox because of halo but now i don't need to buy it." it was a very smart marketing ploy by sony, but anyone with half a brain, or without bias can see right through it. fortunately for sony, a person with half a working brain and a neutral opinion is practically extinct.
I dont think it was a deliberate marketing move besides if anyone reads the entire statement there is no way the can misinterpret it. However yes some people do kind of miss the point.
MS owns the halo franchise and future games will be made by 343 studios. MS also owns a large stock in Bungie which was part of their departure deal, so MS doesn't have to throw money at them. Also, 343 has one of the heads of bungie working for them now, so the franchise isn't in any danger. Bungie has wanted to do different types of games just like IW wanted to do. So we should expect something different from both studios. I guess I should say respawn studios wants to do something different.
Funny pic. So this is true then, wow. I sound a little stupid saying that.
they made laughable crappy overrated overhyped games on lolbox, and history likes to repeat itself I for one am not looking forward to playing dirty Gaylo clone on my so fresh so clean superior console
cause first of all, it'll be a multiplat being develloped on the 360 as lead(like usual) and halo is just plain bad, even if you put it on ps3 it'll still be bad
Lets all remember they said reach is the last halo, so theres no need to say that. Thankfully the ps3 will get something fresh and new rather than a stale money-spinner like halo.
I wouldn't say Halo is bad or stale. The games are very original with some of the best shooting mechanics around in FPS combined with a likeable story and characters. If you want stale think Resistance2, the Halo wannabe. Bungie are proven developers, this is good news for ps3 owners.
definitely bigger, badder just not better which was kinda strange. Many people did enjoy it but many just preferred the original. odst was stale though and was definitely an add on dressed up as a full game....some people still cant admit that to this day even though it was stated long before release. muitiplayer doesnt make a full game people
wow my ignore list is growing quite large today, so many new accounts, so little time
So stale it has hundreds of thousands of plays weekly and when they launch a new one even the movie industry takes notice and uses it as an excuse of why their movie isn't bringing in people. That might be your personal opinion it is far far from reality when it comes to the gaming masses. So many from the Sony camp bash Bungie/Halo religiously here at least you aren't one of the many hypocrites here now thinking this is some victory..
that its ps3 & pc multiplat instead of ps3 & 360 multiplat
thanks for not labeling me a 'loyalist' mind you. I noticed you only need ur co op medal on uncharted 2 for the platty......are you that anti sony:)
can't wait to play Bungies game on my PS3! best of luck to them.
Where is the arguement that multiplatform includes PC and Xbox 360? Bungie might make a ps3 game. They have not made a PC game for years and that includes Halo on PC it was not made by bungie. I think some of you are jumping the gun on this. Wait until they said, "we are making a PS3 game." Then some of you who have ripped on halo for years can suddenly have full intrest in the halo series.
we want something fresh/new/different....sony can say what they want but the gamers here want something else. If any of us want halo that badly we just have to pony up and get a 360, simple
That's exactly what I did :/ It's the only reason I own a 360 and IMO is the major reason why Xbox has been so successful. Hopefully this new IP is great though I'm hoping it is different from Halo in which case it wouldn't really be a good analogy to call it Halo on Steroids. All I want to see is a great game, with some great multiplayer and the features that made Halo so rich. Halo had amazing balance, amazing features that games today still don't have, and user-generated content. I hope Bungie can bring that to the PS3.
You need to read comments beyond the limited scope of N4G.com and pop your bubble. I have seen some sony gamers state, "I can not wait to play halo on my ps3." or "Yay halo is coming to the ps3!" "nobody in this thread wants halo that bad dude..." I guess you are so well informed that you speak for everyone who plays games on the ps3...in this thread. Believe it or not there exists numerous sony gamers who like the halo series but don't like the 360. Be it issues with the cost of xbox-live, wireless functionality, and even the controller.
the majority of ps3 gamers dont want NOT ALL...clear enough.. i mean just look in here, this thread and tell me how many want it 'that badly'...please and whilst ur at it tell me 1 quality game that 1 person from another faction doesnt want so what you said goes without saying. ill just use the term majority
I think you can better pull off that magical feat of "what 1 quality game that 1 person from another faction doesn't want" since you are SO knowledgeable about what the majority DO want.
show me the money.....show me these people you speak of..at least i have this very thread to back a part of my point. Whats your backup...did 'why dis' tell you.... anyway the 360 is dirt cheap. There's really no excuse for any gamers NOT to play halo if they really want to. Some of these 'people' you speak of only want halo as a beating stick to use against MS and its fans like urself, while im sure some really do and others really dont give a sh1t. like the majority of n4g not some unnameable unnameable part of the world outside n4g.. You know in the unnameable unnameable part outside n4g '360 people' pine over every ps3 3rd party/1st party exclusive...tru story
REBOOT MARATHON. REBOOT MARATHON.
They definitely should...but I don't think I want them to chose that as the 10 exclusive activision IP.
Jason Jones is leading this new IPs development. Hmmm...
I'm sure its going to be a high quality ip, bungies reputation simply demands it. I for one cant wait for activision to reveal the new bungie game.
I bet they are happy to welcome Bungie and pry that studio from Microsoft exclusivity by whatever means they had to. As for the IP, can't wait. I enjoy Halo a lot and can't wait to see what Halo on steroids is like....even though it's probably a bit of puffery (yea, I just used that) that companies usually do. Hope we hear something at E3 even though I get the feeling they'll be a bit busy with Reach at E3
sony welcomes you with the typical bullshit...i'm happy that now every one will play bungie games, but ffs...can't sony stop already with this bullshit? i mean no one knows about the new bungie game, is this sonys defence upon halo reach release?
So true!!! Bungie @ Activision just feels dirty and then you get the usual egotistical lip wiggling BS from Sony and it down right wreaks. Puke.
ehm...MS is famous for that, not Sony maybe a year or two ago, but as of far thats MS's title buddy, just check what their PR's have been saying
I tell you whats really funny, reading all the Bungie love that is going round from Sony and the Sony fans. Makes me smile, some of them seem to finally be coming out of their shells. I would not be surprised if all this time they have been playing Halo in their dark cupboards. lol.
If SONY is willing to comment sounds like we can confirm it will be cross platform =)but then again it is by the most hated company activision, who I boycott, so wont be picking it up regardless
That is what I currently do for all Crapcom games.
And all this just days before the Halo Reach Beta. >.>
The question still begs if Bungie can make a major game today that isnt a shooter?. I'd like to see that.
Poor Bots :> Bungie can now finally develop on a powerfull console
It will be multiplat, so it's still going to be limited because of the 360.
It doesn't matter it's multi and that means equivalent,just what claterz said.
Yeah, with your 256MB of ram :>. Sounds real powerful compared to the 360's 256mb cpu, 256mb gpu ram.
256mb cpu? CPU's dont have memmory you idiot! You obviously have no idea what you are talking about
this is what happens when morons read technical discussions on websites like this. They think they know something or look like it by using technical jargon yet only reveal how much they don't know about their respective hardware. The 360 has UNIFIED memory, what he describes is SPLIT memory architecture which only exists in the PS3. What we gonna hear about next the Cell processor in the 360?
@Inkless One word you need to know about the PS3's Power "CELL"
Sony is speculating and trying to capitalize on this by saying "Maybe they game they bring to our platform will be even better than Halo."
HAve they made any other good games.......Don't give me that oni crap
I loved Oni, am i the only one? lol
