  • Digital Foundry: Hands on with the Destiny PS4 beta

    To my eyes, gaming is a very democratic hobby. If a game is shit, generally it will fail long term.

    If anyone does not like Destiny Beta, don't buy it. There are loads of great games inbound in the next two or three months.

    I will be buying it and even persuaded my non shooter fan mate to play the Beta (he hates Halo with a passion). First thing he mentioned was how great the shooting controls are. Then the superb sound then how easy it was to hook up ad hoc or custom fireteam. The last thing was "I want to see the other areas" Says it all really.


    It really does say it all! The amount of people moaning about how dull it is because it's similar to something else? Is it fun to play?? Well bloody well yes it is, but to write it off just because it's similar to something that came before it seems silly to me especially when these nay sayers never have a game pitch of their own. Gaming supposed to be fun isn't it? Nowadays some comment sections are treated a place just to have a "hipster moan". I'm not suggesting games shouldn't be critiqued but at least elaborate a little more than..."ooh it lukz like dat one"

    I can't believe people are trying to criticise the ps4 line up for not having enough exclusives.. It's MICROSOFT that needs exclusives, not sony. If you have the stronger console and all of the games look around 50% better and run around 50% better on your machine then you win and anything third party can be considered as an essential purchase on that machine.

    If on the other hand you have an underpowered piece of junk that you try to advertise by lying and lying and lying and lying to your customers about magic clouds and the like.. then yes, you need exclusives, you need to be able to hold people games hostage and say to the consumer, if you don't give us money then you don't get to play, oh let's say, titanfall.

    Well you know what? Fuck that. I'll play Diablo 3, Destiny, Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Evolve, The Evil Within, Assassin's Creed: Unity, Call of Duty, The Crew, Far Cry 4, The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, Star Wars: Battlefront, Rainbow Six: Siege, Lords of the Fallen, Deep Down, The Witness, Metro Redux, The Division, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Dying Light, Mad Max and Grand Theft Auto 5 on the more powerful machine and I'll have faith that sony will deliver some neat exclusive in the future.

    And if you really need exclusives so that you can really stomp on people about how great your choice in console is then just wait. Sony have an excellent track record in exclusives. The differance is that they like to actually make good games and that takes time. While microsoft just churn out yet another halo game.. (Halo? HALO??? MY TIME MACHINE WORKS!!!!!)


    This..... I mean it's almost as if people haven't lived through a console transition before....we're only 8 months in peeps! Maybe I'm just getting old.....or we've all just been spoilt!?

    Just bought a Vita last week for a trip to Canada and I'm delighted with it! And I'm actually glad they're finding more uses for it beyond it just being a games console. It's quite versatile whether the game's are native or not. Would really love an e-reader app on it though, that'd be immense! Reply +2

    Tom, while I do agree with most of what you say,I ask again. Where the feck are the female writers for EG???


    BOOM!!!!! Or the writers who aren't white!? Can we all just agree that things ARE moving in the right direction (I can actually select my correct skin colour in most games now whoop whoop).

    It might be nice to have one of these articles written from a female viewpoint. I'm all for equality but I personally feel like cringing when the point of the article is missed so badly.
    I feel I may get on my soapbox and write about the lack of "believable" Afro Caribbean characters that have more than a 2 syllable name like "DJ" or "Turbo".

    Look the fact is that if the role isn't written correctly it doesn't work anyway and that is a criticism that could be levelled all across the industry whether the protagonist is black, white, purple, yellow, male, female, gay, straight or transgender.

    Until the writing at the core of the experience improves to make more believable experiences, then this argument will keep cropping up. It's far to easy to jump to conclusions and say "oh it's because their sexist or racist".......no it's because generally the writing is crap!!!

    Rather they release it when it's ready! The game is still enjoyable. The user created content has given the game legs. I would say though that the game is better with friends but at least passive mode works now. For those who haven't been on on a while, give it a whirl, you might be surprised! Reply +1

    @The_Weird while this may be true you don't represent the millions of people here. I own a PS4, my best friend does as do three of my work colleagues. So from my point of view the PS4 is the only next gen console selling which is clearly untrue even if sales figures show it to be the most popular.


    This.... Not trolling at all. I live in Nottingham and seriously I've only spoken to 1 person about an xbox 1 - EVERYONE else since release either has or is planning to purchase a PS4...... These are my honest observations.....

    I played the ace combat beta and really enjoyed it. As I've said before I don't think it'll be pay to win either. I'll buy about 10 of "stuff" to support the dev in the hope they release more entries. I think if free to play is done right it works, bottom line is a good game is a good game regardless of it's pricing model. I know I've been burnt more on full price games turning out crap! Reply +1

    @MrFlump If you already have a backlog of PS4 games, then you must have fairly low standards. The PS4 indies so far (except for Resogun) I've found very weak, and AAA stuff is very, very thin on the ground. I don't expect to use my PS4 much at all this year.

    Not that it matters, I have a PS3, a 3DS, and a PC too.

    The game is what you make of it.

    For me, it was a 2hr affair that showed a promise of things to come. There's no way I'm going to go back and do all the missions etc - that's not how I get enjoyment from games - so overall the experience to me was not worth the price.

    By buying this game at the listed price you are effectively saying to the industry that it's OK to do so for this type of experience. There's nothing wrong with that, mind you, just know that that's what you'll be doing.

    This record is rather broken, and repetitive.

    The game is not a demo. If you played it instead of jumping on an internet bandwagon, then maybe you would realise this.


    Indeed! Sick of people providing opinions on something they haven't played. I played it last night taking my time and still didn't complete the main mission in two and half hours. No doubt I'll triple that and still have fun. The article is correct when talking about open world's and it's no confidence that I had the same conclusion when playing. They really are trying something different here, so people should give it a try imo.

    Right, I'm going to say it loud and clear, anyone dismissing VR, as it stands now, and the form it will evolve into over the next few years, is an idiot. A short sighted idiot. Someone who hasn't researched what's going on, is too caught up in comparing it to other fads of recent times and seem happy to believe it is nothing but another fad. Seriously, are you aware of what this really is? The application of the technology has reached a stage where we're at a true watershed moment. Truly.

    Might sound hyperbolic but this time it's real. Oculus Rift and those with decent PC rigs will lead the way, Sony's VR solution won't be all that far behind. There's a wealth, a HUGE wealth of applications, both within the gaming circle, and perhaps even more crucially, outwith gaming. Applications which will be hugely significant. This is not Waggle 2.0, this is something new, the realisation of the Virtual Reality dream, and those dismissing it will look like fucking idiots in about 2-3 years from now. Yep, fucking idiots. You have been warned :) Do some research. The tech is there, it is affordable, it is feasible, it is revelatory. You're either a butt hurt fanboy of something or other to dismiss it so readily.

    To dismiss VR now, with all the proof of it's realisation, is akin to the idiots dismissing the moving image, or sound recording, or the printing press. FFS have a think before you talk nonsense. This will take gaming to a whole new strata, and more besides. Thank god some folk are taking the plunge and making it happen, a world run by you idiots would still be confined to torchlit caves.

    Bloody well said sir!

Only wondering if maybe it would be better to wait for the Infamous bundle, but it doesn't look like it would save me too much money, and since it comes out so late in the month, I run the risk of not finding the console anymore and thus wasting the coupon.

    Seriously someone should do a documentary on the months leading upto the PlayStation reveal last year, through the horror show of Microsofts E3 reveal, the backtracking, resolutiongate and then end on actual release of the consoles. I mean last year was absolutely nuts news stories about next gen and between the Microsoft and Sony press conferences there's enough drama in that alone to make a good documentary.

    TO be honest I am shocked he is even trying to get you to by this. For me Kojima has become the Michael bay of the games world, keeps saying last one, but doesn't do it.

    Move on Kojima, you can do other games... Oh wait you cant as your a one man wonder.
