    I am slightly curious. However my curiosity does not override the desire to instead wait for bugfixes, DLC and everything else to be bundled in for the game of the year edition, especially not for a newly freed company attempting an ambitious title.

    I actually forgot about this game. I'll probably watch some reviews, then look at my backlog and wonder why I even bother buying games, as I can't even start all the ones I already bought. :P

    Waiting for the PC version sadly.
    Going to be realistic here there might no be a PC version, especially with it's MMO-esque features they're probably going to be working on content for all four platforms rather than make it for PC assuming they don't hire some crackjob developer to do the PC version.
    If it doesn't come to PC I'm just going to import the Dragon Quest Heroes limited edition PS4 which will be out around Spring 2015 and just get Destiny then.
    If it's not out by then I don't think we'll ever get it on PC .

    Nah.. I'm waiting for the rumored PC release in March 2015. :P
    Maybe there will be a Complete Edition until then or something. :D
    Either way I like my FPS games on PC, no offense to the console users, no hate, I just like my mouse and keyboard to play an FPS. :)

    OH GODD I WANT SO BAD

    Anyways, I have heard rumors of a PC release, but I remain skeptical. If they do release a PC version, I am tempted to get it just to see how far you can crank the graphics. And Attila13 you arent the first person I have heard say that. Actually, I have heard some of my PC gamers say it depends on the FPS as well.

    But my suspicions lay in who and how the game gets ported to PC. Knowing bungie they might do a real bang up job. But given their track record of releasing Halo1 3 years after being an xbox original exclusive then another 5 after Halo 2... I dont know. Then again you could also look at it this way. Bungie has been out of the Sony realm for... I think ever, and this time around they are giving PS4 owners the best experience with this particular game. So given they are really shaking things up, maybe this time they do a good port and every one wins.

    Except you, Nintendo.

    I just don't get the hype. I mean, it looks... okay? Fine? Dandy? None of what I've seen makes it look really mindblowing or anything. If the word of mouth is good a few months from now and people I know are still playing, I'll probably pick it up, but I'm in no rush right now.

    Hearing how Activision's already sunk $500 million (or more) into this thing, it just seems like they're more interested in cranking out a franchise than starting with a solid, good game and going from there. Couple that with Bungie's shady treatment of Marty O'Donnell and just Bungie in general and I can't say that the publishing/developer combo is worth my day-one loyalty.

    Xbox One, but for my brother. I put no.

    I'll probably obtain it for the 360 at some point.

    The Dragon Quest PS4? Yeah it's pretty sweet.
    Hopefully by then the PS4 will have at least 5 games I want. I'll get it regardless.

    “I’ll speak for the hypothetical player,” Wolfson explains. “I have a disadvantage sniping across the map because [my opponent with a next-gen console] is only two pixels on my screen and I’m four pixels on his. You see that in the world of PC gaming, where people are always racing to the best video card to give themselves the advantage.”
    That quote right there worries me. Not only is it terribly wrong and idiotic, but if they make a port with this mentality it probably won't be that great because equality.


    I can't really put the blame of the Halo PC ports on Bungie due to the fact that they never touched them, pretty sure it was MS' decision but I might be wrong.

    Well for your sake and other PC gamers around the globe, I do hope you get Destiny, because its terribly selfish for me to just want it to stay on consoles.

    Also for you because you brought it up, there's a "campaign" going on to get the attention of Square Enix to translate the missing games for 3DS. maybe enough steam could warrant DQ Heroes to get a proper translation too.

    I forgot
    Was gonna pick it up tonight at midnight, my preorder from Gamestop got cancelled :(

    So I preordered it on Amazon, so I'll get it tomorrow morning sometime anyways :D


    That's ok, you wouldn't be able to play it at all since the servers aren't even up yet (and won't be until release). Online only play, no singleplayer ;)

    The servers are up.
    People in New Zealand and Australia are playing along with the reviewers who got their copy today also.

    I didn't think they went live until this afternoon :lol: Huh. Looking at times though, seems they put them up this morning instead. Interesting.

    Had it pre-ordered and everything, but unfortunately cancelled it as i'll be playing a new MMO coming out on the 12th, so i'll have 0 time for Destiny.
