I haven't played a Bungie game since Halo 2 (on the PC which wasn't such a hot port) but the concept art looks great. I loved Planetside (PS2 less so) and if Destiny taps into that same vein then I am interested.

Jeff, please consider running a comb through your hair or close the curtains. Hair that is disheveled and back-lit is, to my surprise, distracting. :)

@rethla: Jeff made it clear that they can't acknowledge the existence of next gen consoles so they have to be coy and say it will release for 360 and PS3.

Activision-Bungie might not be releasing it for PC since Activision-Blizzard is rumored to be working on a real mmofps with Titan. Activision might not want to compete with itself when Blizz drops it's next mmo after World of Warcraft.

WiiU version? Hahahahahaha... :(

Sounds ambitious. Curious to see how it all comes together!

Posted by Kevino13

A mmofps from Bungie sounds like it could be pretty awesome. Put it on PC, and I'm sold!

Is it just my computer or are there random audio cut outs?

Nope, its not just you. It is probably just a problem with how the video uploaded.

I think Bungie's ego is going to be the downfall of this. They think they are way more revolutionary than they are.

@jeff This audio issue reminds me of that squelch setting used to cut out room noise when no one is speaking. Perhaps you have such a setting in your software or on the mic itself, and it's set too high?

you may have a point there. i totally forgot about titan (thanks for remaining punctual, bliz bliz). although i doubt titan will be a shooter. but you never know- maybe they DO believe they'll compete with each other. depends how heavily they expect people to invest, i suppose. most sane people only play one mmo at a time.

The current rumor is that Titan will be a mmofps set around the Starcraft universe. Since Wow is still going strong they don't want to put out another mmo too similar to Warcraft.

These are so weird. I love it.

Posted by marbleCmoney

The online structure sounds kind of cool. I'm interested to hear more about that.

Posted by ITS_A_SECRET_TO_EVERYBODY

So... is it weird that I'm watching a grown man in his underwear tell me about video games in his bed room, or even weirder that I'm noticing his sweet bed skirts and performance sheets?

Posted by smiddy

The concept art looks incredible.

Posted by dvorak

Sounds kind of cool, and a little like an open sci-fi Monster Hunter.

Posted by Majkiboy

If the shooting is anything like Halo - I am out. Otherwise it could tickle my interests

Edited by SSully

Why isn't this on the front page?

oh the audio is a bug? thought Jeff was censoring himself :P

With the pictures of their huge, beautiful office and the sheer ambition of this game, along with getting Paul McCartney (a FORMER FUCKING BEATLE, THE BIGGEST BAND OF ALL TIME) to help with the soundtrack, I can't help but feel Bungie might have developed a pretty significant hubris at this point. Getting kind of an Ion Storm vibe from these guys. Hopefully they don't end-up going down the same path Ion Storm did.

Posted by biggest_loser

Thanks for the new information Jeff. But why is he drinking out of a jar?! lol!

Are these guys still stuck on consoles or could the game come out on PC?

They're not going to put in on PC, because according to Jason Jones "And now nobody plays shooters the way they used to play them before Halo ’cause nobody wants to." Meaning on PC and with M+KB.

Kinda funny really, to have him say that and then take a chapter from Valve and their workplace.

Posted by graboids

from what they showed it seems like it has potential... the idea behind it is awesome, kinda reminds me of Chromehounds MP...just hope they can pull it off.

but all I can think of is this:

Yes, it does sound ambitious and intriguing. A huge universe to explore in a sci-fi space, it sounds very good, though I'm not into MMO-like games, this seems like an exception, but with tweaks. It doesn't really seem like a game that'd come to current consoles at all, only PC and maybe next-gen. I hope it's next-gen.

Edited by Dan_CiTi

Reminds me a lot of Phantasy Star Online, mixed with Borderlands and such with ideas from Journey and RDR multiplayer. Glad it isn't a full on MMO though, I definitely prefer this approach.

Also, the production as far as the music I really like! Cool how the music is being made in collabo with Paul and its use as an inspiration for the game itself.

Posted by Jigenese

Jeff - your mic needs some help; you were cutting in and out throughout the video. Some words were completely dropped. Looking forward to the podcast to catch the missing details.

Posted by Bourbon_Warrior

I'm guessing the business model will be like Call of Dutys 60 dollars for the game and a few expansion packs every year that you can buy at a time or get the Elite service. I would be OK with that for a console MMO.

It never hurts to have ambitions; in any case it is what I wish every developer would strive for, and if it means their downfall then at least they tried; instead of making the same shit over and over like some companies do! Let's see this game in action properly first before saying it is a piece of outdated, simplistic garbage.

Guild Wars in space could be fun. I like the concept art but if they're serious about a PS3 version that's not good. The tiny amount of memory in the PS3 will limit the scope of any single area. Nothing like the expansive and detailed concept art shots would be possible.

Posted by FZackM

Sounds like a giant cocktease.

Totally worth flying out to look at concept art and pictures of the devs.

Edited by BlatantNinja23

If they were actually doing a PC version of this than they could have just shown of the game without giving people hints at what next gen is tech wise. Instead they have to stay in the dark. That or MS really wants the reveal in their conference or something.

Posted by spiceninja

This game sounds like it could be something special. They should have held off a week and shown it after the PS4 reveal so they'd actually be able to show the game.

Posted by AURON570

hmmm yeah the artwork is very reminiscent of Guild Wars 2 artwork, and the whole partying up and building your own story does sound like Guild Wars..

Posted by bloodsoul5

audio cuts in and out at small intervals.

Posted by siln

I'm so excited for this video game that looks exactly like all other video games. I wonder if there will be guns, and objectives, and levels.

Posted by Zace

Sounds boring.

Posted by gesi1223

Is it just my computer or are there random audio cut outs?

It was happening for me as well, so I'm relieved to know it wasn't just me.

Posted by DefAde

Who dares censor the Gerstman?

Also... expect an announcement at year end, that the 360 & PS3 versions ain't happening

Posted by CurtMan2k7

destiny sounds pretty cool, but i don't know yet..

anyone else having audio issues with this video?

Posted by Deltan

Not just you.

Posted by TooWalrus

I'm not sure if I'm excited about the multiplayer aspects, but the concept art all looks pretty great.

Edited by mlarrabee

This could be the best game ever made and it would still stumble because it's not Halo.

Note: if you interpreted that sentence to mean I think Halo is the greatest game made to date, read it again.

EDIT: And those bits of missing audio were caused by a compressor's attack set too low.

Posted by Ithmoliar

I feel we've seen this time and time again. This could be the end of that studio....

At one point in the video i noticed the light shining through Jeffs quiff thing, now i cant stop looking at it

Posted by LarryDavis

I really like the AGMIHUTYA series.

Edited by Toxeia

I think the beginning of the feature should start with a display of your underwear, or lack there of.

My boxers claim to have a no-gap fly, but it lies. It constantly gaps. I want to know someone else has this problem. I want to know that @jeff has this problem.

Only when every article, review, podcast, video feature, and live broadcast on Giant Bomb begins with the words "A Grown Man in His Underwear Tells You About..." will this website have achieved the highest pinnacle of creative achievement.
