We are only one day away from the hugest launch this year in gaming with Destiny but as a Playstation fan i ask myself this question! Will PSN be able to hold up?
I personally think it will.
Pre-loads should have helped but if it crashed because of minecraft I'd imagine it isn't going to handle Destiny. If it doesn't it'll be a nice hate filled PSN vs XBL day on N4G, tune in tomorrow.
It wouldn't do any good comparing PSN to XBL if one does have trouble, if the game crashes it has little to do with either. The game runs on Bungie's servers with the PS4 version being the more popular one by a pretty good amount it looks like. So Bungie's PS4 servers will likely have the most trouble. But it reflects on Bungie's servers, not Sony's or Microsoft's.
I'm trying to play Madden so they better.
yeah! it will be very fair to compare XBL and PSN whit Destiny... the PS4 will only have like 2x more players than in X1, yeah.../S
It's fine in Australia. Mine craft caused crashes by a bug not server load.
Pre-loads will certainly help relieve the servers from crashing.
Yeah it crashed when the beta started but I think that was from everyone downloading it which puts far more stress on the servers than just playing it so yeah, it should be fine.
There will be issues, the question is how large and how quickly they can resolve them. What we don't need are excuses such as due to popularity. That's a poor excuse. The servers should be able to handle the load, we are still in the early stages of the PS4. 10 million won't be buying it on the PS4. Even if you count PS3 sales we shouldn't be seeing crashes. If so Sony needs to explain their infrastructure and why they need so much maintenance downtime.
Well I won't be getting it til Friday so the servers won't have to handle the CHAOS THAT WILL ENSUE FROM ME PONING YOU FOOLS IN CRUCIBLE!!! So yea it should be fine.....
I have my reservations about it but hopefully those people there's no issue.
No, the question is has any hyped game ever withstand the stress?
Not on PSN...
Not a chance lol
Its a Bungie game running on servers they own. If Bungie have not optimised the code to run good on PSN than maybe we will see issues? I dont expect issues unless hackers try again.
There's no EA logo on the box
i actually think both will hold up. however there probably will be some connectivity issues due to high traffic but i dont think either will crash.
I hope so if not then we have to complain to sony.
The beta got a lot of traffic and it ran fine for me. I hope they will be able to handle it, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.
On my way to pick up my copy, see you on the battlefeild!
Didn't we already have an article like this already? Both Xbox and playstation have suffered from this. But I guess we'll see tomorrow. It's crazy to picture all the fanboys waiting for the results to go on the attack about this. Lol, what a bunch of losers
exactly x1 went through it with titanfall at launch. here is the proof , http://n4g.com/news/1472106...
Titanfall launch went well for me, not sure about everyone else. Although, I have the digital copy of Titanfall and I have my Destiny Digital Guardian Edition pre loaded ready to go.
It would help if the people who write these articles would do a little research on the topic before calling a DDoS attack a "hack" or something done by a hacker. People who do this type of thing are comparable to forum trolls and have nothing to do with hacking or it's sub-culture. Yes PlayStation Network will be able to handle the millions of users who use the same network on a daily basis.
Probably not. I dont play online so I dont know but doesnt nearly every big launch have issues? Destiny will likely be the same. Just dont lose your heads, its a first world problem.
I'm sure Sony is bracing for the impact and have taken measures to prevent server meltdowns. I mean they paid for a lot of timed exclusives and advertisement rights it would suck for the first few days having the game not work on their system.
Oh there will be some problems alright.
Bungie servers, not SONY
Working fine for me :)
Good luck to my fellow PS4 N4G gamers. Wish you guys the best and have a stable online expeience on day one.
probably not first day. Every game has server issues when it first opens even Blizzard games which are completely focused on online play. Remember GTA5?
the wow expac cataclysm was sooooooooooooo bad on day one of release, I was getting 8 seconds lag lol, I would go to pick up a helmet in the first new zone under water and it would literally take about 8 to 10 seconds to see if I picked it up or not lol, same happened with mists of pandaria and it kept crashing for a lot of ppl too, no company is immune to this kind of thing.
it's just not practical to have EVERY player on a game at once (usually the case on launch day with an always online game) and expect a network to maintain it. There's no way they can test for that many people being online at once. A man will give them a week, which is the same test Rockstar got and failed, to fix any severe issues that pop up before he gets angry about it.
Well... Mine craft dropped the hammer which surprised me, so I'm slightly concerned about destiny. I realize it runs on bungies load tested servers, but psn still has to route the traffic.
that was a bug issue with mine craft not the server.
It better not. It did cross my mind when I pulled the trigger on my PS4 Ghost instead of Xbox One Ghost........I better have made the right decision.
If day one lag is effecting your decision on a 10 year game a man is sad for you. The issues will most likely last a week on every platform just like GTA5, every COD ever, and every WoW expansion ever has caused stress on their launch days. Servers are just overloaded when everyone gets the game but it calms down. It's perfectly acceptable and should be expected.
it obviously has...
