    Box art and a two sided poster leaked from retailers.

    October release rumoured.

    Dreading to hear about the various ways Acti will rinse / ruin both this franchise and Bungie as a studio.

    Proper Destiny reveal later this weekend isn't there?

    Sunday sometime.

    I think Bungie is smart enough to hammer out details like that before signing and Activision would be pleased to get them. They need a new success. Bungie will be left to it and Activision doing the big marketing push.

    Goes tits up, sure there would be a side exit.

    They survived Microsoft okay.

    Bungie contract is pretty much as good as it gets. Activision practically more like exclusive distribution of the games and responsible for marketing etc. Only thing bungie tied to is the amount of games. Activision takes a percentage, therefore it is in their interest to just support bungie and market the hell out of the series. Bungie are 100% independent..

    MS are bad, using COD as an example, Acti are next level. Increased RRP, "elite", annualisation. Halo under Microsofts watch had none of this.

    My first thought upon learning about Bungie's nw game Destiny was oh a SF game set in the far future where mysterious aliens are threatening mankind and the earth itself with a heavy emphasis on multiplayer. I'm glad they escaped Microsoft to do something different!

    As I read the article my second thought was oh they are ripping off star wars!

    Flippant comments aside, I think Bungie's has a lot of talent. They do epic and world building really well. Glad its multi format, too.

    after the opening paragraph of the article i was like, ' yeah, ok. this sounds interesting' and then i read it's going to be 'fun and accessible to all' and aimed at our inner seven year old and my heart sank.

    i hope this doesn't turn out saccharine flavoured.

    one other little gripe, and it's me being picky i know, but there's a screenshot of the curvature of a planet with a foreign object orbiting, on a background of a bloody starfield! a starfield visible from orbit!! damn you Hollywood!!

    I guess that depends if you pay for Xbox live really.
    I recently bought a new 360 and couldn't believe half of the things I have 'free' on ps3 and even wiiu I can't access unless I go 'gold' on my 360.

    See, normally something like paying for Gold would bother me, but since they provide a service that is so much better than it's competitors, I don't mind paying the 3 per month sub.

    What's gold xbox live got to with Microsoft's treatment of Bungie?

    Our month-long focus on indie games starts with my look at the PS4's best game (still): Resogun!

    if were going to go off topic and talk a load of bollocks may i please say that the longest one syllable word in english is 'screeched'.


    back on topic...i like Bungie. i'm happy they're multiplat now and not owned by Microsoft. did you know MS charge a fee for internet service that others provide free? i believe the account type has a name. i'll just look it up....

    Sorry if I've glazed over this but do we know what sort of game this is? A sort of sci-fi MMOFPS like Planetside or Dust?

    I'm trying to gauge whether I should have any interest in this.

    I think it is going to be similar to PlanetSide, although a bit more heavy on the extreme sci-fi, what with proper aliens and all that. I expect there will be an epic campaign, but most of the onus will be on the multiplayer with a persistent universe. Again, a bit like PlanetSide.

    If this is indeed coming out for next gen consoles then I'm hoping to get a first glimpse at the new tech.

    That and a new Bungie game is pretty exciting.

    As long as the gameplay goes a bit beyond normal FPS bollocks - i.e. Halo (haters gonna hate), then good.

    my worry is that they are aiming it at a broad audience and appealing to our inner 7 year old. i'm hoping it's more BSG gritty then Star Trek preachy.
  • Deleted user 17 February 2013 06:39:33
    I think what they mean by 'appealing to the 7 year old in you' is not what you think it means.

    What I got from that was that they intend to instill that sense of wonder in you.

    By the time I'm back from work this should all have happened.

    It might appeal to the 7 year old in my basement. I should ask him.

    I hope it has swords as well as shields. That would appeal to my inner 7 yr old
