Bungie's timed Xbox exclusive Destiny to scoop Sony's PS4 re

Hmmm, assuming for the sake of argument that the Sony conference is them preparing to reveal the new PS than MS would need to respond in order to not let the competition get ahead.

I imagine a console launch announcement takes time to organise, but if you announce a launch title (with solid release date) you get to unofficially announce the console's release date, and show off what it can do without having to quickly put together the full announcement or reveal features or specs.

Sony then get ripped apart because of what they reveal (cos the internet is like that) whilst MS hope to do nothing except inspire awe and mystery.

Clever.

Wrong link Ed, http://www.oxm.co.uk/41779/bungies-dest ... exclusive/ for the exclusive bit.

I'm not so sure it will be exclusive though. The close dates to me mean that it's all to do with ps4/next gen, as in, someone is finally revealing a console giving bungie a place to say hey look our game is coming out on this console.

Tied into your other article, if released on 360 and gert wont the online component suffer if no backwards compat? There'd be no one online if you separate the networks, and saying your friends aren't going to buy the 360 version because another person is buying a gert version is silly, they'd buy whichever version and they'd play on both because no one will buy a console just to play one game with their one mate who has one, food for thought.

Well, if the contract is true, it will be 360 and gertrude exclusive, so you wouldn't need the gert.
