The trailer is impressive, the story sounds interesting too. I wish i could go to E3, it sucks that we don't get to see awesome conventions like E3 in Australia.

This game looks pretty awesome and very ambitious.

I was never a HALO player but if Bungee pulls this off i'll be right there. The art direction looks much more appealing this time round. HALO always came across as a little cartoonish to me. The characters, enviroments and enemies all looked slightly... i dunno... Dont want to critisize too much LOL. I know how fans can be.

But if the concept art is anything to go by Destiny seems much more my cup of tea. It looks like a bizarre mixture between a hyperfuturistic mass effect style setting mixed with a sort of medievil theme. Really interesting.

And the story so far seems very appealing in a kind of Arthur C Clark way.

Looking great Bungee.

No, Guest and LOD-squa, I'm not saying there's any true advantage. I'm saying people's preferences are clear. That's all. PC Gamers tend to be better gamers in general, as the console gaming market is more casual. Furthermore, you're right, once you get past the learning curve, mouse and keyboard is more precise. But people don't want to deal with that shit for the most part. They want ease of access, like LOD-squa said. They want a controller designed to fit in their hand and they want to be able to get passably good, fast. They don't care that if they worked at it, they could get good with PC. They don't want to work at it. People want convenience. That's all I'm saying, and I think that's all Bungie is saying. They don't define "better" as "you can play more precisely and react to developments quicker", they define it as "anybody can jump into playing with a controller on a console in a way they can't with a pc." And they did prove that shooters could be on a console. So it's not dumb at all, in my opinion.

Furthermore I never denied my post was about preference. That's exactly what it is about. I'm arguing the face that most people prefer controllers.

I'm looking forward to this. I think the closest I can think of to what (I think) Bungie is trying to do is a game like Star Wars: The Old Republic. It's an MMO that is actually designed to be more single-player friendly (you literally don't have to do any multiplayer to beat the game's main story, and it's very well done). I have no problem with that idea of how a game should be designed combined with FPS, and Sci-Fi elements ala Halo and even Star Wars itself. I really do doubt this won't turn out to be a great game, if not a fantastic one.

Yay4sean Yeah... Bungie is being all sorts of ridiculous here: http://www.destructoid.com/bungie-says-nobody-plays-shooters-the-way-they-used-to--245428.phtml
I think the quote was taken out of context; someone else mentioned

"he was referring to the fact that since Halo the FPS genre was fundamentally changed (Regenerating health/shields, two weapons only). Jones was saying that no one (an exaggeration, more like most people) plays FPS's with health packs and the ability to carry an unlimited amount of weapons."

In regards to PC:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-02-17-destiny-requires-an-internet-connection-to-work

"On the possibility of a PC version, Parsons said: "We would absolutely love to be on the PC. If you talk to the people upstairs, we play it on all platforms. So, stay tuned." No mention was made of a Wii U version."

I have to agree with the guest on this one, most people prefer the controller because of the ease-of-access that they provide. You get so much more precise shooting when using a mouse and a keyboard.

Mastix So... you're saying that because there is a bigger market on consoles that means controllers are better suited for shooters?

Put a group of console gamers against a group of PC gamers in a shooter and PC gamers would always win. It's not that "we" have personal preference (and for that matter, you have it too, your entire post is about your personal preference in gaming), it's just a fact, you can aim and react a lot faster and better with keyboard and mouse and I tried both ways of playing a fps.

So Bungie saying "No PC versión because controllers are better for shooters and WE made that happen" is the dumbest thing I read this year.

Some people have told me it will be on the idea of Borderlands and WoW. I personally never played WoW, but if it has some elements from Borderlands without being like Fallout or Elder Scrolls, I will be happy.

Bungie's been making such amazing single user, story focussed experiences, I really hope they don't turn this into an MMO or even Borderlands style game. I really like the art direction I'm seeing in the reveal, and also the background story. I want the storytelling and unfolding lore to be told with in-game footage, interactive elements, and really immersive experiences, not grinding missions handed as text descriptions out by NPCs. If they do that as a really strong single player experience with co-op and multiplayer as optional enhancements to the experience, then they can easily create an entire 3-4 game franchise. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed, would love to see another well made, AAA sci-fi franchise come about.

Let's be honest guys, there are just a lot *more* console gamers. And that lends itself to evidence that most people prefer to play with a controller. They're designed to play in a way a mouse and keyboard are not. Denying that based on personal preference is just ignoring the state of things. It's okay that many of you still prefer that experience, but most of us prefer an interface designed for the thing we want to do. My mouse and keyboard are well designed for typing and using the GUI on my computer. They aren't designed with gaming in mind (though you can buy such things). My Gamecube controlled had a crack team working tirelessly to make something that fit in my hand and work perfectly for gaming.

I think the most curious screen is at 1:19, where a list is shown of different game "modes" that you can join. This feels much more like a console, Halo-type of multiplayer as opposed to anything remotely like an MMO.
Yeah but I remember that particular part because it reminded me alot of Star Wars back when I saw them and I got all excited, didn't realize until now that it's the same game. I might preorder tomorrow.

Whoah, whoah, whoah, whoah. 2:05, I've seen that in screenshots here before. This game has certainly piqued my interest.

BTW, everyone should join us at the forum so we can speculate.
