Have to say this news caught me by surprise. Everyone was assuming that Acti would instruct Infinity Ward to produce a CoD MMO to pull in the money that WoW was doing. Introducing the MMOFPS using a brand new IP from a different (but established) developer is actually a sensible idea, so well played Activision.|
Still won't be buying it, mid

I'd rather Bungie had ambition and failed, rather than have no ambition at all.|
I'll be buying this regardless, I like Sci-Fi, I like shooty shooty.

So it's an MMO that's not an MMO? OK. |
Sounds very ambitious, I hope it comes off. Bungie are capable of making amazing stuff - if the gameplay goes Halo-but-further then it could be great.
FFS Bungie, you know better than that.
|They all but said MMO, didn't they?|

That said, I liked the art work.

Spoken by the least craziest looking people you'll see! I hate the pompousness and ponderousness of Bungie self-promotion, but it does look good. I do hope those mean-looking alien types don't go running around squealing when you shoot at them, or sticky-grenade you with the their last breath.

Exactly what I thought. With a bit of Journey in there too.

Although the fact that they're really scared of calling it an MMO isn't helping.
Confusing message much.
Too high on self importance by far. Hubris is never a good thing.
I am watching this, hoping it doesn't turn into a car crash. At the moment Bungie are in danger of becoming Coldplay.
I think the fact it's always online is probably the least of their problems.|
After all this bullshit, if the game isn't revolutionary they're going to look mighty foolish.
Rockstar don't pull all this shit, they trickle but they don't invite everyone to a venue to show them nothing.
....and I'd wager GTA 5 as a far more anticipated title.|
Helps that we know what it is though.
I'm a big Bungie fan from their Halo work and I'm cynical so I can totally see others getting narked.
Bungie have been refining their 'dicktease' for years now. They deserve a good raping.
They might learn some humility at least.
Just show the fucking game or don't. I don't really care for your pretensions.

'their most disturbing/aggravating pretension about this game is their insistence that games are better when they're a shared experience and that it's the future of gaming. that is a worry because they actually seem to believe that bullshit.
i like playing online with other's but give me a deep, immersive single player game over it any day.
got to say though as for the story, man spreading out into neighbouring systems only to be near annihilated by unknown forces and saved by a mysterious entity, would be a novel i could be interested in. especially if someone like Peter F Hamilton wrote it.|
i know it sound a little hackneyed but sci fi is my thing. i read it almost exclusively.
This thread is a good example of how gamers seem to feel entitlement. On how they think they are owed something. |
You didn't like the reveal? Boo hoo.
I would have liked to of seen more in game stuff but oh well. Bungie can do what ever they like, they don't owe gamers anything.
No matter what developers do now they get bitch tits on the internet moaning or even worse starting a petition.
Imagine if dark.souls 2 had an easy option...OH MY GOD WE MUST BOYCOTT IT.
Grow up guys.
