Sony Bets Big On Bungie With Destiny

By Spencer . June 10, 2013 . 11:38pm

Microsoft and Sony both ended their press conferences with new shooters. Titanfall from Respawn Entertainment is a squad based shooter with mecha and it’s exclusive to Xbox One. Destiny is from Halo creator Bungie and Activision. The game takes place on Earth hundreds of years in the future where you play as a guardian who has to defend the last city on Earth. Sony ended the PlayStation press conference with a trailer (shown above) and a live gameplay demo.


Unlike Titanfall, Destiny is not an exclusive title. The game will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Sony said Destiny will have exclusive content for PlayStation platforms, but have not released specific details.  While Microsoft has a long relationship with Bungie, Destiny was not shown during their press conference. Instead Battlefield 4 was shown with a live gameplay demo.

    Well, Microsoft did screw Bungie over, at least from the rumors I read anyways.

      what happened o:?

      Complete BS! Microsoft was the one who allowed them to go on their merry way. Microsoft didn’t screw Bungie. They gave them what they wanted, their independence. If they wanted to screw them, they would have not let Bungie go. Stop making up BS!

    Titanfall is really an “exclusive” not an exclusive. It’s also releasing on PC. I hope, and it seems likely now, that Destiny will be on the PC as well — I don’t play FPS without a mouse and these two games look mighty fun.

      Destiny on pc is unconfirmed, but Bungie definitely showing interest.

      • Strid

        Yeah, I’ve read that interview with Bungie too ;)

        • neocatzon

          Warlock in Destiny interest me :) Titanfall have a lovely mech and jump jets, but no love for The Division?

          • Strid

            I’m a huge Tom Clancy fan and The Division looks amazing, however, I take issue with Ubisoft’s uPlay service on the PC so I no longer buy their games [since they require it]. If I were to ever buy a console shooter though, The Division would probably be it. I think the industry could really benefit from a sort of, how to say, “AAA” take on DayZ or a survival scenario. I would love to see more games on the style DayZ built, but not necessarily all that hardcore.

    I don’t like trailers showing different action sequences every 3 seconds. It’s too fast for me. No honestly, I hoped that since this was the gameplay premiere they would have a presentation more like Titanfall’s.

    Now what I like from this game. It definitely looks like something new and I really liked how the characters looked like they could have psychic powers or whatever. I guess I could play this until a new Mass Effect arrives.

    Edit: Just heard there was an onstage 12 minute demo too. I didn’t know because the livestream lagged so bad for me last night. Good to hear, will look it up later.

    From the Creators of Halo: “Yeaaah!!!”.
    And the Company that brought you Call of Duty: “Oohhh…”.

    Destiny must be the most anticipated shooter this generation. Or maybe that’s just my impression.

  • I’m looking forward to this

    This trailer don’t sell Destiny as good as the 12 minute demonstration ad Sony E3 conference :)
