    "Destiny is on pace to set the all-time preorder record"

    O_O

    Looking forward to a vibrant community

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/activis...series-6412402


    Bungie Studios' first post-Halo project--shared-world shooter Destiny--has the potential to become Activision Publishing's latest billion-dollar series, according to CEO Eric Hirshberg.

    Speaking today during an earnings call, Hirshberg said Destiny is on pace to set the all-time preorder record for a new franchise--at Activision and across the industry. And based on the company's internal estimates, the game is set to become Activision Publishing's third active billion-dollar franchise, joining Call of Duty and Skylanders.

    Destiny launches in 2014 for current- and next-generation consoles.

    Also during the call, Hirshberg spoke about preorder figures for Call of Duty: Ghosts, saying they are "well below" the record-setting Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The executive attributed this downturn to consumer uncertainty regarding next-generation platforms.

    "However, our quantitative consumer research indicates that hesitation amongst past [Call of Duty] preorderers is primarily due to not knowing which platform they will be playing on, which is natural at this time in the console transition," Hirshberg said.

    He pointed out that Call of Duty: Ghosts preorders are double those of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, which was the last time Activision launched a Call of Duty sub-brand. In addition, he said other "key engagement metrics," like the number of monthly and daily Call of Duty players, as well as downloadable content sales and video views are "significantly" ahead of past years.

    What's more, Hirshberg said Activision will support Call of Duty: Ghosts with the most aggressive marketing plan in the history of the Call of Duty franchise.

    Call of Duty: Ghosts launches November 5 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are also in development.

    Ugh, too bad Activision has it. At least Bungie retains the IP, and some freedom.

    I am liking this. Seems well-deserved based on everything I've seen from this game. It oozes quality and I do hope a lot of people I know scoop it up so we can play together.

    Yeah cod will still sadly beat it. But this game is one of my most anticipated. Hopefully my internet can run it.

    COD ghost pre orders are down because the franchise sucks. People are tired of playing the same old twitchy shooter. Well at least I am

    Haven preordered it yet, but it looks like an amazing game and will definitely get when it comes out or reserve it a month or two before.

    Well, Bungie hasn't let me down yet. I'll probably get this game down the road, as it looks like it's going to be pretty awesome.

    I am a bit unsure after reading more about it in the new Edge mag, doesn't appear to be any competitive MP, just public events, where others join to kill the AI enemies. Could get boring, I could be completely wrong also!!

    Hope its the latter.

    With the MMO type focus and the shooting mechanics in place, I say a PvP mode will make an appearance

    Is anything actually new if you look at it like that though? Even Titanfall is nothing new then. Just some CoDII with some Mechwarrior. While there isn't anything extravagantly new or anything, MMO's aren't really about new. They're adaptations on pre-existing templates. It's all about how well they integrate their chosen templates, the adaptations they make, and how well it all meshes together with an online community.

    PS4 is going to thrash the X1 globally so much that non-gamers will joke about it.
    Game sales will be affected by this also.
