NowGamer reports that Bungie community manager Brian Jarrard has today hinted that its next Activision-published franchise could spread across multiple formats and genres, including handheld and mobile devices. Full story here.
can't wait to see what this IP is!
RPG + FPS = AMAZING! (like borderlands) Whatever it is, im sure Bungie will do an amazing job on the series.
exclusively on the ps3
Hopefully someday ;)
Going to be massive.
Open world RPG shooter, calling it now. Just look at their job listings.
If Reach is anything to go by, they know how to make gaming fans happy
Yep! And they are going to be working for a much wider audience!
In my opinion. Unless a studio is 1st party, I do not see the point in limiting your sales. Unless of course you're paid to do a specific IP by Sony or Microsoft, eg Insomniac
Then why not spread across the Wii, the PSP or even the NDS? Star Wars the Force unleashed did it. Point is, it COSTS money to develop for both platforms, even moreso if you're trying to get dibs on the PS3. Granted, multi-plats are what we call the "safe-point" for investment returns. Remember that game "Dante's Inferno"? It was multi-plat wasn't it, didn't outsell GOWIII despite having 70+ million consoles to derive from. Striking a niche and generally selling the game are two VERY different things. -End statement
im sorry i had 2 disagree but really Dante's Inferno compared 2 established GOW3...nah Dante im sure did alot better than being limited 2 1 console cuz really if it was it hav 2 be 360 do u really want that game being all alone on ps3 againist gow..uhh no at least wit 360 they had that rare according 2 here gamer on 360 that plays those games & do u really wanna but all ur eggs into that rare gamer buyin the game.. & spreading across every plat is different from spreadin across the similar 2...you'd hav 2 figure in motion control(most likely why were gonna see alot of wii games gettin ported 2 ps3 than prob 360 not that they might be good ports but how many good ports r there really) & less buttons on handhelds 2 make the controllers feel natural but its Bungie & i dont see them throwin sumthin 2gether just 2 get a few dollars off PS3 they're gonna want there 1st game being there best game so there name means sumthin on PS3, its always up 2 the dev's 1st then gamers 2 get the games & only time will tell if it works out that way
that don't sound like Activation, lol. knowing bungie, it'll be massive.
Hopefully it's a new refreshing experience from the Halo franchise. I'll give it a chance if it suits my gaming needs.
It is an action RPG. Bungie doesn't own Halo M$ does. 346 is deving the new Halo. Bungie has had this in works for a short time now. It is mutli plat including moble. Massive is an understatement.
The union of Activision and Bungie is as promising as the union of Jason and Freddie...Both companies are notorious for their lack of creativity and spitting out the same crap with new maps and calling it a masterpiece... I am more intrested in a team like Naughty Dog or Insomniac going multi platgform than Bungi.
We like fun games? I'm not a huge fan of Insomniac and prefer Bungie going multi (though I have both consoles so they could have stayed exclusive for all I care) Everyone likes different things
@JUDALATION "as promising as the union of Jason and Freddie" LOL , leatherface also wants to join that union .
looks like a competitor to Mass Effect might be on the way.
Goldeneye wii and NBA jam as well as Black ops wii,Epic micky,Trackmania wii,Zelda wii,3DS,Will keep me happy until Wii2 i hope them cancelled PS3 games from ubisoft Killing day ect end up on Wii2 with better graphics ect going off 3DS hardware Nintendo are not interested in a slight upgrade infact going off 3DS being 300 times more powerful than DS i think the next Wii2 could be 40-50 times more powerful than PS3 there are rumours of Wii2 using AMD FUSION APU which is so powerful u can have in game CGI and realistic graphics that are impossible to tell the difference between real and rendered graphics so if Ninty choose this and i think in a statement they said they will use FUSION at minimum so yeah looking foward to Wii2 and not interested in PS3/360/ because they will get phased out graphics wise by then FACT so no need to chase graphics as there always getting better.
The Multi-genre part is clever. Real time strategy, first person shooting and action-adventure? (If that's what they mean) COUNT ME IN
