**** YOU, BUNGIE. YOU STABBED YOUR LONG TIME FANS IN THE BACK!!!!

And so on, and so forth. Has the shitstorm that's been brewing at Bungie.net calmed down yet?

Well, we shouldn't worry. Not the cows nor the lems. Bungie loves us all equally, except for sheep and hermits.Tough shit.

“Loving a good game and the hard-working developers who create it is not a console exclusive.”

and

"We make games here at Bungie. We love the people who play them equally.”

So, don't worry. Despite all the money being thrown around, Bungie still loves us all. Except they love money more, but who can blame them.

HAHATJSKDQMMQS

Thoughts? Full of shit or legit?

U do know Activision is one whos paying all the bills. Even though bungie owns ip, I bet they have some sort agreement lets them make businesses decissions like this.

And who really cares.... ooo little extra dance moves and mission that won't mean nothing to the a story.

That's nice Bungie said that and I don't suspect PR at all /S. Activision sunk over half a billion dollars on this series...

Now that Bungie said those nice words, go reserve their game, get ready to Beta test their game, and eventually buy their game.

It should be noted their stated goal is graphical parity as well. After the PS4 Alpha looking like a PS360 game, I'm not surprised.

Kinda does seem like Bungie is turning their back on the fanbase that made them. Whether it was their decision or not, Destiny is being pushed as a PS4 exclusive in all the ads and its alienating their Xbox fanbase. Cant really blame people for being upset at them.

Personally, I dont really care. Destiny doesn't even look that interesting to me right now.

Happy that Bungie dumped that Halo garbage and left it to the casual Xbots. And Destiny looks great on ps4.

And LOL at Bungie pushing their game for PS4. Xbox fans being dumped on like always, meanwhile they are left with 343 making Halo crap. LOL

Oh yeah, but (not all) people aren't really lashing out at Activision for this. I've seen a lot of Bungie hatred, so I decided to roll with that.

I honestly don't care, since I have no interested in this, but it does remind me of situations like FF13 for 360. Death threats and everything. Classy stuff.

XBox fangirls must be crying up a storm. It seems like they have to make a statement every other week to calm the tears and butthurt. Those fangirls chose to wall up on that sucky console rather than face the music and get a PS4. Such is the way when the pendulum swings.

More to the point, it's the console makers who approach the publishers to make deals (offering the cash for the rights). Not the devs or publishers who say, "Here we made this game but we like you (platform) so we want to offer a little something extra. Interested?"

Just as it was last gen when Microsoft was so aggressive with the multiplat DLC (GTA IV, Tomb Raider Underworld, etc...) this time it's Sony who took initiative with Destiny.

Insomniac Games Loves “Microsoft & Sony Fans Equally;”

The only loyal dev are Kojima Productions and Atlus. They have never abandoned PlayStation fans, not even once. Meanwhile the likes of Capcom, Square, Namco, etc. They always tried to distance themselves from PlayStation only to fail. In the case of Namco they at least learned their lesson. [now that I think about it Atlus did stab us in the back a couple of times by making both Persona Q and SMT4 exclusive to the 3DS. Meanwhile they tried to balance things out by releasing a crappy dancing game for Vita...]

But Capcom once tried to make Resident Evil exclusive to Nintendo even though the franchise started on PlayStation and most of their fans were there. They denied Vita players of Monster Hunter games. Square-Enix made most of its JRPG's exclusive to the X360 and so on. Mistwalker has never even made a single game for PlayStation even though all Sakaguchi's games have seen the most success on Sony platforms.

Bungie (nor Activision) didn't "push" anything. Destiny is on all capable platforms. It's Sony that pushed for the exclusive content deal. Not the other way around.

Exactly, same shit. Different day. Both fanboy factions are idiots that need to realize that most of these publishers don't love you lol; and you're not entitled to shit. Bungie's owners (Activision) love whoever is throwing the most money their way, the devs don't really have a voice. Sony paid for exclusive content. This is just PR, nothing more; nothing less.

*rubs temples* Good gravy. You know, this is EXACTLY why people game on more than one console. Gaming should not have to revolve around one company and one platform. Not even Sony.

Also, do you know why RE went to other platforms at the time? Shinji Mikami was pissed off with Sony, proving that even they alienate developers, much like MS and Ninty.

Good lord, gamers are a whiny, prissy bunch of 12-year old girls.

OMG Bungiez, why you no make me your gamzors!!!!!!????

Get over yourself. Bungie made Xbox exclusives for over a decade. Many Playstation gamers have likely never played a Bungie title and therefore it makes sense to get the Playstation fanbase interested in their game, as they already have a devoted Xbox fanbase.

Chill out people.

Well, I imagine Bungie is most certainly taking money from Sony, after all it was Bungie that was at Sony's E3 and we'll probably see TV spots for Destiny ending with the Sony/PS4 logo. That's typical of many multiplatform games though, MS or Sony might offer to pay or supplement advertising in exchange for their logo so people associate the game with their system, even if it's available for multiple systems. Now, money for that can only go so far...

So, if it's the case that Sony isn't actually paying Bungie any additional funds and yet Bungie is kowtowing to Sony with DLC and beta access with no additional financial incentive, yeah that would be something that some I'd imagine would get upset over. If however Sony paid additional funds for the beta and exclusive DLC then I don't see what the issue is.

If I were Bungie though, my diplomatic approach would be to explain that they realize the contentiousness between console supporters from both the Xbox and PlayStation sides of console gaming. I'd explain that Bungie is well aware and appreciates the longtime support of Xbox gamers with respect to the Halo series. I'd justify any Sony support though on the lines of trying to open up their marketability to a wider audience who might have not have been exposed to Bungie's previous games, and by no means meant to alienate Xbox supporters. Explain that any olive branch Bungie has offered Sony gamers was merely meant to break any negative reputation Bungie might have with fervent Sony supporters who might have badmouthed Bungie over the previous years when they're were with Microsoft.

I don't see what the fuss is all about with all this complaining!

So what PS4 gets Exclusive TIMED content which means it will be out on Xbox at some point. You don't see Playstation gamers complaining that Microsoft paid for the Battlefield and CoD DLC to appear on xbox first. Also if I remember rightly it was Xbox gamers several years ago using in arguments "PS3 was rubbish they have no games. We got Forza, Fable, Gears of War and Halo."
Now I was a 360 Gamer pretty much 99% of last generation of gaming. Didn't really look into Playstation games has I saw the PS3 as a glorified Blu-Ray player. Hell I still do think its that.. But I own one. As well as a Xbox 360.

Now bungie came out last year at E3 stating that this exclusive content was coming to PS4 and yet those people who are complaining and bitching are now stating Bungie screwed them? If that tiny bit of content for Destiny is what you call being screwed and it was that important. I have one question. Why did you buy an Xbox One knowing that bit of content for Destiny is going to be on PS4 and NOT XboxOne. Hello... you have sunset overdrive, dead rising 3, ryse, killer instinct... HALO do I need to continue. Your purchase was based upon the games you wanted on that system not whether or not you got some extra content on Destiny.

And it's just the opposite. Without Bungie, there would be no lemmings.

If there is anyone to blame, it's M$ for not allowing them the creative freedom they wanted.
