TVGB: "Activision considers Bungie’s new intellectual property to be something rather special. So special in fact that CEO Bobby Kotick has labeled the ‘well underway‘ property “unlike anything audiences have ever seen before”."
Love Bungie. Hate Bobby Kotick.
Pretty much agree with you here Fang. Either Bungie is going to help build a better reputation for Activision or Activision will destroy Bungie's.
bungie will hopefully hold there own. If not....eatin up!
I don't think Activision can destroy Bungie's because they have no say in anything. Bungie does all the work on their schedule and Activision gets to pay for it.
You can watch the whole thing or skip to 4:58 to sum up their feelings and wants. It's actually a very good video. This quote by Jason Jones was quite intriguing: "When they (Activision) asked what I wanted, I just want them to get out of our way and let us make a game. Trust that we're going to something great, give us the money to pay for it, and then get out of our way."
stlPoison said it with that quote from Jason Jones (the co-founder of Bungie). Bungie let Activision know, and also put in the contract, that Activision leave them alone and let them do their thing. They want the funding and all that comes with it, but they're still independent.
*Yawn* Heard it before... Will we see it?? That remains to be seen..
I agree. They always say this o get the hype starting. I'll wait until I'll see it.
I'll wait till I can play it. They can make any crappy game look awesome with the right editing.
If you disagree could you please explain why?
@blizzard_cool probably just a halo hater. Ive seen people that just go into Xbox 360 or PS3 threads to disagree with everyone no matter what the article is about. Fanboyism for the loss
yeah...just like all your CoDs and GHs...oh wait...
The problem is if what ever Bungie creates turns out to be successful you know dam well Activision will surely milk it like they did to COD and GH. The thing I hate about this deal is that Bungie is more known for Halo (FPS) and most likely I see them (Activision) allowing Bungie to make there 1st game for whatever it is but I can also see them turning Bungie into the next COD developer to take over from IW.
The thing about having a contract signed and dated is that there aren't any renegotiations until the contract is up. With that said, as long as there aren't any stipulations or variable clauses in the contract, Activision will be unable to change the already predetermined schedule that Bungie has set up for their next 10 year IP. In other words, they can't milk the new franchise. This is wonderful on Bungie's end and it seems that they have done their research and are aware of how to handle it. I believe in the end, this is wonderful for gamers on all platforms..........including the iPad lol
Activision can't turn Bungie into anything. Bungie has control of what games they make. Activision didn't buy Bungie. They simple fund Bungie, publish their games, and obviously profit off of them. That's it.
The only thing we know about Bobby Kotick is that he is a business man that likes profit. So, if you're going to "hate" someone, maybe you should get to know him first.
Maybe you should get to know Bobby Kotick before defending him.He has said and done some terrible things
you seem to be in touch with your feminine side(or something). I usually have a positive attitude toward everyone, but you dont have to get to know the guy to tell hes an arrogant deuch, who will screw over hard working people so he can get more money.
You probably don't even hate him you just say do. And if you really hate him you have some serious issues because hes done nothing to personally hurt you and you don't know the guy.
@Alpha Activision is the Worst, they buy an Idea/IP from an Small studio and the Studio/Dev as well, IF the Game is Successful, they push [start] on the Milking-Machine and when the Games don't do Well [Milking-saturation], Activision Kick-out/Fire/Close the Studios Red-Octane suffered from this and: [ http://www.joystiq.com/2010... Sure Bungie make an Agreement to prevent this Whole crap, but something tells me that, IF the new IP from Bungie is Really Successful, Activision will want to milk it as much as they can and that's not good at all...
From what we all know of the contract between the two, there is no possible way for Activision to do that.
Bobby Kotick can go to hell
Aren't we jumping on the hype train a little early? I mean, the train hasn't even pulled into the station yet.
I cant wait to see what it is but I dont think it will be as successful as activision wants(if its not a FPS, even though it will probably still be great). Good luck bungie, dont let kotic give you any sas.
And it will be infinitely the better version on the Playstation 3. PS3, it only does everything. Including 360s former flagship title.
"What it actually is won’t likely be known for sure before 2011, but there are already hints; job listings have suggested that the studio is looking to include “branching or non-linear narrative” and other, somewhat RPGish things." I'm starting to see why Sony said it was Halo on steroids. Colour me excited
Good, I don't want same old. same old.
Well, that rules out any continuation of the Marathon universe then. Hmm...I wonder if it's still something sci-fi?
hope bungie can bring fans something else besides another run&gun shooter..
...it must be some sort of serious money-sponge. World of HaloCraft?
Something original would be good.But Kotick you shouldnt be where you are not fit ...
How many times hav we heard things like that before though? most games that come out say the same about themselves My bet is youll hav a gun and youll shoot things of sorts and thatll b it
But i would love to see Bungie's new work because the Halo franchise needs to be put to bed. still Reach will be amazing and i cant wait to play it. I look forward to bungie's next game. as that will be on the PS3. ^^
Thing is, there's so many different ways to point and shoot at things. I would still like to see Bungie do another shooter, as long as it's new, fun, and no-longer constrained by Halo's gameplay approach.
Not interested till I see gameplay.
bungie are the new RARE
I'll wait and see, hopefully it turns out right and I'll buy it for my PS3..
Hmm, that actually doesn't sound too good, considering.
Oh Activision... You know we can't trust anything you say!
As long as you give them your money, I don't think they're particularly bothered about whether or not you believe them.
3hrs long n like trashyy halos rental save himself extra $. dats the furthest ill go rental even tho i wont even rent it either. HAYABUSA 117 hes right. BUNGIE aint that great now look at reach dnt game looks like it should of came out 2 yrs ago terrible game. ACTIVISION ARE BAC STABBERS F DEM
I want something as new and exciting as Halo CE was in it's day.
Hah, very well said (Y)
like every freakin projects nowadays...*sigh*
everyone says 'Our new game is unlike anything else ever seen' or 'the most innovative game yet'
So Bobby has the hype train rolling already.
there building a multiplat thats better than halo. meh...
is that it's a First Person Shooter...and I haven't seen one of those in ages ;)
Blah Blah Blah :P
...the Price of the Game in the Shops will be - “unlike anything” seen before i bet!!! ;-D
You mean DLC pricing will be like nothing seen before.
The real question, however, is it unlike anything I've ever PLAYED before? It's easy to make a good shooter with different characters, setting, plot, etc... but it's the ones that bring a different way to play or a unique feel that, in my opinion, shine the brightest.
well that's good. There last 4 games were exactly like something seen before. I cant say I'm to exited about bungies next game. Run and gun shooters aren't my type of game but i did like the dash that i saw in halo reach and i do like 4 player coop so I'll keep my eyes open. (edit) Oh ya... It's published by activision... I'm boycotting them due to them ripping people off... The DLC is a prime example. Guess I'm back to not caring about this game.
I am fairly sure it will be a very good game. Not sure if it can be but Hopefully something to be on the scale of the Halo franchise
This deal is NOTHING like the deal they had with Infinity Ward.. Infinity Wardwas bought outright by Activision for like 5 million when it was a fledgling company and Call Of Duty wasnt sh!t.. This deal with Bungie is PARTNERSHIP to publish and distribute this new game (over the course of 10 years) and they will also put in money to ramp up production..
OFC. But as the publisher, Activision have the right to x% (the majority of the % I would say) of the profit. And if Halo manages to sell 10 million copies on xbox alone imagine what Bungies next game can do on both platforms. This mean big bucks for Activision. (Obviously, I know it's not going to be a Halo game and this could go to hell too, but I doubt it.)
"Let them make it. Then send in the bouncers." - Activision
Hmm, sounds interesting.
And the best part, PSTriple fanboys like myself will have our slobby fingers all over the game.
I will wait to see what it is before drooling
No, Activision, I am not getting aboard your hype train.
I think it will either be a fps or tps rpg along the lines of Deus Ex but more expansive. Think of a cross between Deus Ex and Fallout 3 but more story-driven with a decent element of choice. Think of KOTOR or ME but more action-based. Think of co-op as something that resembles the attempt of Borderlands and then think of Halo-style multiplayer. Mix those games together and throw in a few unique features and an interesting original universe and you have Bungie's new IP. That doesn't mean it's going to be good but it does suggest what the style of the game will be. Also, don't rule out a PS3 or PC exclusive for it's first outing. Remember, Bungie want to start this new franchise off with a bang so they'll want to make it technically impressive and the 360 would hold it back somewhat in that regard. Therefore, they may follow Rockstar North's footsteps and bring this gen's iteration exclusively to PS3 and it's unveiling could come in the form of an explosive announcement at the end of Sony's E3 conference in a month's time. However, I doubt it will be announced until after Reach is out.
i knw certainly the game bungie is cooking up will be good .. those guys knw how to make a game that plays well..n that is certain but how i hate activision
Goodness, how long are we going to have to hear about how amazing this game is going to be from employee talking heads? Just concentrate on gettin it in our hands please.
CANT WAIT TO PLAY THE NEXT BUNGIE GAME IN MY 60GB PS3!!
cant wait to play a bungie developed game on the pstriple gunna be sweet feeling for sure
Does this mean it's not going to be a video game? Because I've seen those before.
