Typically I don't nab a console for one game but Destiny looks so good I might make an exception to that rule. Since I have never owned an XBox I haven't played any of the Halo games and Bungie's next game seems like a re-visioning of that universe.

With the Steam Console being on the unknown horizon and the PS4 seeming to support the Indie scene as well as it claims, I might get a next gen console much quicker than I thought.

What do you think, does Bungie's next game look interesting to you? If so how do you plan on playing it?

Since this isn't coming to PC (that I've heard, anyway), I plan on picking it up on Ps4. I'm a big Halo/Bungie fan, so I'm really looking forward to see what they do with a multiplayer persistent world. Looks like there may be some inter-planetary travel, too!

Yeah, I am really looking forward to more details on this game. It looks so pretty.

This looks pretty interesting but I am firmly in the camp of not buying a console for a particular game. My PS3 is more of an entertainment console anyway, I think I'll stick with it until it dies. I'll need a lot more than one interesting game to pick up the PS4. I had plans to put a guest OS on my PS3 when I got it. With a mandatory firmware update they removed that option a few months later. I'm not bitter...

Yeah, I dont typically nab a console for one game either. Also, like you I use my PS3 as a media center the majority of the time too. Destiny does look good though and over time I might get excited about a few more games to help the prospect.

Something I usually use as a decider in any game purchase, is the the controller that's available. Prior to this year, I would have never purchased a First Person Shooter on the Ps3. The Xbox 360 controller just felt right for that type of game on a console. I'm starting to get used to using keyboard/mouse on the PC side of that coin, but I feel more at home with a controller. The DualShock 4, if it's as tuned as everyone says it is, makes playing a game like Destiny even more accessible on a Playstation system. I think it will be a key factor, in conjunction with the apparent lack of gamer love coming from Microsoft, that will draw a good chunk of the Xbox players over. Seriously, is it just me, or is that controller just dead sexy!?

The PS4 controller looks pretty good. Not sure why people dislike the PS3 dualshock, I think its pretty good but the XBox 360 always felt way too big for my taste.

I prefer the xbox controllers because of the placement of the joysticks. They just feel much more natural when I hold them.

But about Destiny. I've been extremely excited for this game and I would really like to get it. BUT, I ,just a few days ago, built a brand new PC and its going to be hard for me to go back to console after making such a beast machine. If I do end up getting a console I'm leaning towards the PS4. The slightly better hardware and the new design for the controller definitely has me thinking I will part from the xbox, Although, the xbox one does have the ability to switch back and forth between windows and xbox operating systems which is kinda cool(or so I've been told).

So I have no idea.

This is published by Activision so I'd be surprised if it didn't come to Xbox One and PC as well. You should be safe BR :)

I was talking to some of my friends at work today and they were saying that destiny will only be on the PS4 and PC. I'm not sure if this is true but I haven't had the chance to look it up yet. Also, after talking to them a bit, I found out about the PS4's stance on used games and online restrictions. I'm thinking I will be buying the PS4, considering they actually know what the people want.

Bunnie's pre-order page shows it for Ps3, Xbox 360, Ps4 and XBone. I don't think it's coming to PC at all.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 06/13/2013 at 06:01am

Yeah, not listed as a PC port. Sad, it would be great if it came to PC.

Apparently, I get all my games from Bunnie's Game Cache here in Anchorage...

Destiny MIGHT come to PC:


"I’d say we would absolutely love to be on PC,” Parsons said. “If you go upstairs and talk to the people upstairs, we play on all platforms. So stay tuned."

So, ill hold off on my "buying the PS4 for this one" until we get the official "sorry, no."

Cross your fingers people! Destiny would be Badass on PC!
