Cool.

@benroyturner: I'm guessing Jeff was saying things he shouldn't and had to edit the sound out.

I'm not sure if I can remember a game reveal recently where the developers have said so much and so little all at once. I'm definitely extremely excited about this game, but I was excited before this reveal and it has left me with far more questions than answers. Bungie certainly has the pedigree and they're saying the right things (even if the hard info is still quite sparse). The only reason I hesitate to buy into this venture completely is that Activision is publishing it. If Activision were to give a "blank slate" to anyone, it would be Bungie. However, any sort of meddling on their part will almost certainly be detrimental to the final, retail product. This isn't exactly a wait and see sort of situation, but there is some cause for concern, albeit slight and out of the ordinary.

@max_cherry: That's exactly what came to my mind too. "It's Huxley...but we'll make it work better".

@mewarmo990: PS2 was manufactured for 13 years. This is what they mean when they say 10 year plan. It means that if the market supports it they will keep making the systems available. They'll continue to get cheaper and cheaper too. Also in countries like Brazil for example there is a longer life for these consoles than in North America and Europe.

The audio on this kept cutting out towards the end for me, did this happen to anyone else?

How is this "ten year plan" 360/PS3 game going to work out when the next generation of consoles are being introduced soon?

Just because the next consoles are arriving soon doesn't mean they can't support their older consoles for another year or 3.

So, they're making Huxley?

Posted by allstarpro

Not sure if this was said somewhere, but source code on there where to buy page has PS4/Xbox 720 listed as well as PC. So looking forward to seing that

I am honestly not excited at all. As I grow older, I just get frustrated with having to be online and games forcing me to play with others. My group of friends are busy now, I don't want to meet random people that might get further then me or annoy me to death. I don't have the time with get my friends together and play for a few hours. Nothing about this grabs me and in fact it just disappoints me.

Also planning ahead, especially "10 years" really is never a good idea. It also sickens me, but, that is the world now.

As far as gear goes I hope they use the DC Universe model in that you can use the stats of higher gear but still cosmetically wear whatever you want. A lot of ppl dont know/forget but that part of that game was awesome and made for crazy variety in the players you would encounter.

That would cool if they did it that way. They could even do what Lord of the Rings Online did and give you cosmetic armor that you could wear above your normal armor.

When I saw the title I misread it as, "A Grown Man In His Underwear Tells You About YOUR Destiny".

If I had a nickel for every time that's happened...

Posted by Masakari

Everyone has described this as "Borderlands" like, but from all Jeff said, the way everything seems to be setup is just like Phantasy Star Online.

Jeff, Jeff, you're a grown man closing in on 40. You don't need to be drinking from a jelly jar...unless it's moonshine.

As for Bungie's next big project, well I don't know. I mean I know more today than I did yesterday, but I still really don't know anything.

Edited by MSUSteve

How up your own ass do you have to be to provide pictures of your fucking office in the asset package for the reveal of your game? About as up your own ass as Bungie is, obviously.

Honestly, I can see this as something Luke Smith would've snorted at with derision back in the old 1upYours podcast days and now he's part of it.

Posted by Funkydupe

@probablytuna: There's absolutely no guarantee we'll be interested in this IP even 5 years from now. It is a pretty far out there statement to say that you expect this to still be relevant a decade from now. Imagine all the IPs and titles coming our way within that frame of time. It is way better for them to show confidence in their own ability to maintain and improve this than the opposite though. I have to say it has to be pretty special; and they've had one of those already in Halo and judging by Halo 4 that is starting to somewhat fade away.

I'm so tired of class based FPS games...

Kind of interested now.

Speak your wisdom, O mighty underwear man!

Posted by gogosox82

So its a mmofps like planetside 2 but on consoles except they don't wanna call it that b/c dudebros don't like mmos is what i'm taking from it. And no gameplay whatsoever? Lame. Gameplay or gfto. Yeah the concept art looks nice and all but i really want to see what it plays like and how everything works. It also sounds like its not gonna be on this generation. I mean, maybe they will put out on ps3 and 360 but will they actually support it especially if most people play on ps4/durango. Also not on pc? It seems like this game is made for the pc so its odd that its not going to be on the pc.

Edited by Zamir

so it's a sequel to Brink

Posted by chrishardyblue

I'm with Jeff, kind of hard to get excited about concept art. Most games don't get on my radar until I can see actual game play.

Posted by Patman99

It sounds really interesting. I think the idea that other players will swoop in to help sounds really cool. My Dark Souls self hopes that there will be some antagonistic pvp but regardless this game moved from zero to ten on my awesome scale.

Posted by KalAl

Sounds like Jeff has a noise gate turned on with the threshold set too high.

Destiny is intriguing...but i came to watch Jeff talk with only his underwear on primarily.

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

Me too.

Jeff mentioned on his twitter that he was using a new mic which gave better sound quality, but for some reason the audio would drop randomly.

Good to see that Bungie is breaking those Halo shackles and making an FPS about Aliens invading earth, a large, round-shaped artifact and playing some type of super-soldier.

The online stuff sounds like Armored core 5....

No PC? No Care.

Edited by spiketail

Hmmm... 10 year gameplan. Can they pull it off? Given how much Halo in it's various incarnations is still being played, I would say yes. Bungie sounds like they are being incredibly ambitious, which I hope will be great for inspiring other developers to try for other grand scale projects.

As a PC gamer, I would hope that Bungie will also have a PC/Mac version. But as this seems very early in the hype process, I'll join the wait & see crowd. And if there is no PC version, meh. There are plenty of other games that will most likely grab my attention by the time Destiny actually comes out.

I am AMAZED Jeff didn't mention PSO/PSU while describing Destiny, as that was the only game I kept thinking about the entire time.

Or Borderlands with MMO like hubs.

Had the same thought! Never played PSO or PSU, but it sounded very much like it.

Posted by Duh_ave

I was wanting something a little more different from Destiny, even after they announced it as a sci fi game. I suppose I shouldn't have expected things to be that distant. I like Marty O'donnell's music, but the stuff in the vidoc just sounds like another halo game.

Audio issues in the video became somewhat annoying, though. Hope Jeff gets that sorted out.

Edited by Seb

I find it hard to believe i'll play any game for 10 years.

Posted by chilibean_3

I wonder what makes this different from MMOs of the past or Guild Wars or Borderlands or any other kind of game that's springing to my mind when Jeff talks. It doesn't seem all that ambitious to me but maybe I'm just not getting the picture that Jeff is painting.

JEFFS HAIR

Edited by SpicyRichter

I bet EA thought that the old republic would be popular for 10 years too

Posted by SpicyRichter

Jeff's hair is blowing my MIND in this video. Why does everything gotta be multiplayer only these days? Am I the only one who deals with people all day at work and wants a little time to them self when playing games?

Man... they flew in a bunch of journalists to see a press event that contained a some loosely defined ideas of things that may or may not be in the game and some concept art? This is press release stuff, Bungie. You make a website for this sort of thing. You don't need to pull out all the razzamatazz until you've got something for realsies to show, yeah? No?

Nope some game journo's actually got to see the game running. Check out gametrailers.

Man... that's shitty.

The Destiny logo looks like a codpiece.

Jeff I love your insight and perspective. Thanks for the honesty too. This is why I come to Giantbomb.
