Bungie: Destiny's engine will last us 10 years, scales to ne

I'm sure it's all very good, but it means nothing, some truly amazing games have been made with the Unreal engine, but so have some total stinkers, all this means is that Bungie games will look nice and have lots of features, a diamond covered turd is still just a turd. Not that I'm suggesting Bungies game will suck, but if this generation has taught me one thing it's that all then hype they throw out at us is worthless until I have a decent game in my hand.

I'm thinking all this sounds a little bit too good to be true, kind of how you felt when they announced Kinect and they said "yeah look it can do ALL of this stuff" and you were thinking "can it? can it really? because then colour me impressed" and quickly it transpired a fair few of the features weren't anywhere near as refined or complete as it turned out.

Don't get me wrong, I really think this game will be great and I want to believe that all of these ambitious plans are possible, just my typical British pessimism tells me to wait and see.

I think they need to shut up bragging until they've got some gameplay footage to show us. I'm sick of the hype already and they've only released the odd screenshot. It's not even coming out this year FFS.
I don't get the appeal at all. Like what do they do... say something stupid then read the replies while they touch themselves? - Vampyre_Ghost on trolls.

The idea of scaling to spec isn't exactly new is it. I mean PC's have been doing it for ages depending on what you have, Nice to see they can do it for the respective consoles, but as the guy at the top said, a diamond polished turd is still a turd...
