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

Posted by dvorak

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

Posted by smiddy

The concept art looks incredible.

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?

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

These are so weird. I love it.

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.

you may have a point there. 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.

@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?

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

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.

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

Edited by Mexican_Brownie

WiiU version? Hahahahahaha... :(

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

@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.

Posted by cabbagered

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. :)

@winternet: It's not just you. It's kinda clippy at parts.

Posted by Dberg

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

Posted by rethla

Support this 10years and release it on the current generation hardware wich is at its end wtf?

Will they release an upressed version for the next generation with cross play to the old or whats up Bungie?

People are going to hear "The schedule seemed really padded, like there was something they cut out" and "'Wait, you aren't going to see the game today?'" and suspect that Sony got them to delay gameplay footage for the Playstation event. I would caution people into assuming

The Best Case: There are PS4/720 versions, and we will see the PS4 version on Wednesday

when it's far more likely we will get

The Worst Case: On Wednesday, we hear "And as part of our long term commitment to PS3, let me present the worldwide gameplay premiere of... Destiny!" and PS4/720 versions aren't out until the next major title version in 2015 - not even the expansion release in '14, the new title in '15.

And no, you almost never get unified online systems. As long as the patch processes are different for the various systems, they can never guarantee all systems will update at the same time, so everyone is running on separate servers. Not much anyone can do about it.

Sounds interesting I guess, seems kinda weird to have an event and not really show the game at all.

Posted by seannao

So.. Warframe, but BIGGER. (although Guild Wars comparison was already made so w/e)

Posted by Subjugation

@duffyside: Bottom-right of the video. The thumb tack symbol, definitely not removed.

Also, the audio on this video is definitely jacked. I get weird static and Jeff's voice cuts out completely at times.

Posted by laxbro19

Alot of the stuff seemed to really make it look like that Destiny is a FPS x MMO. That hub city where you meet dudes to shoot faces with seems ripped out of World of Warcraft. I just hope the shooting and gameplay are good. I also don't see how this would work on current hardware if they really want to expand the game the way they're talking about.

How do I make the video "stick" in place while scrolling down to read the comments? Best feature of the new site removed?

Click the pin that says "sticky video."

By the way, if you're looking for some sticky videos, I could show you a couple websites.

Thanks, duder. Hit me up with those websites later.

@jeff: Is it just me or is some of your monologue edited out? How come? Is it Bungie?

Posted by ThePiePieper

Bungie hasn't let us down yet (Aerospace doesn't count). Every FPS they have put out has pushed the genera in a new direction enough to keep it interesting. The class based thing reminds me of Resistance 2. Not well executed, but great in theory. Also, I think the art looks very Reach'ish, my personal favorite. Either way, my interested is peaked.

thought they were editing out stuff that cant be said at first

My money was on editing out profanity based on some sort of agreement from the press event, but yeah, it's the home setup, probably just ordinary recording issues.

So the game is pretty interesting. Seems very much like a competent developer rebuilding the PSO model.

The fact that it's probably multiplatform and segregated is actually sort of troubling, in a way that normally doesn't matter for console games. If this thing is going to compete as an MMO in any sense - and it has classes, named loot, and enough other details to suggest that - the size of the community it can pull in and get talking to each other tends to overwhelmingly determine how good that kind of game is long term. People need to be able to join their buddies, and the few MMOs that were a big success so far have tended to be cross-platform communicating, or single-platform.

Hopefully Bungie realizes they do have the weight to throw around to build a good ecosystem for their game.

I liked A LOT how You presented this information. Very informative with a dedication to work through the marketing talk.

@winternet: Yea noticed that too, good to know it wasn't just me. Guess it's Jeff's recording equipment?

Edited by ildon

This just sounds like Diablo/Borderlands/Hellgate: London.

Edited by MrBubbles

I was interested in this but hearing that it probably won't be released for the PC kind of turns me away.

On a side note what's up with the audio cutting out randomly?

Posted by MAJID

Nothing about this sounds terrible. But I cannot see how disseminating this vague set of details so removed from any actual footage and a release makes any goddamn sense.

Is it just me or the audio is all kinda of messed up?

Posted by Grimluck343

I am really excited for this game, I just don't know how it's going to work with new consoles coming.

Posted by roughneck117

Everything Jeff mentions about this game just reminds me of Defiance, and that game is a full on MMO for all three platforms. All that talk about going on adventures and then some dude coming in to join the fight just feels like defiance in FPS.

Am I the only one that no longer plays shooters on consoles?

I play them sparingly, but yeah most games are now best on PC.

Same here. I haven't touched my console in years. Hehe, touched my console. Sorry.

@ansys said:

No PC version... WTF!

Seriously, I'd like to play this just not with a controller. I can't play shooters with a controller anymore.

It's a MMO. Free to play most likely in the vein of Planet Side or something?

free after the 60$ initial purchase. Probably lots of microtransactions too

Posted by RollingZeppelin

Glad I'm not the only one with audio issues. It's probably a noise filter with the threshold set too high. Shame, I feel like I missed some valuable points in the video, the game sounds...interesting?

Posted by curlyq101

While some of the elements seem kinda basic (Multiplayer focused shooter, Aliens, etc), the game seems fresh for some reason. The art really got me interested. The setting of a dirty future is cool, and the idea that humans being on the downturn post-galactic expansion is interesting.

Posted by raikoh05

make the audio stop cutting out and getting staticky, the other videos were better.
