The mentality of some Xbox One owners suggests that they will play Destiny until the Master Chief Collection releases in November. Their gameplay investments will then be funneled into Halo's multiplayer. While Halo 2 was my favorite multiplayer game, I do not wish to get an Xbox One for access. Instead, I would rather get exclusive Destiny content on Playstation 4. If you have chosen your console based upon other exclusive titles or system-specific perks, this thread does not apply to you. [i][b]I am targeting an audience of those interested in Halo and Destiny only.[/b][/i] [i]Under the reign of Bungie, Halo was a game changer in the pool competitive multiplayer games.[/i] It imprinted a new standard of quality of the FPS genre. It did this while being a console exclusive for Xbox--it could compete with the multi-platform, Call of Duty franchise. Halo would continue to excel beyond expectations of its audience until Bungie's contract with Microsoft ended after a decade. As the dust settled, 343i took over Halo--with them, promising to mirror the success of previous installments developed by Bungie. 343i began remaking Halo: Combat Evolved in order to bolster the Halo franchise and provide an initial boost of momentum. The game's reception was positive; however, many were upset that online multiplayer was absent. The remake was solid, and 343i released Halo 4 roughly a year later. Success for 343i's first original Halo game was not fulfilled, evidenced by the exponential decrease in player population in less than a year. [Updated - Thanks to LordofSwagMirals] To their credit, 343i listened to its fans and will soon release a game that contains a collection of Halo's 1-4, called the Master Chief Collection. Halo 2 has been graphically upgraded and improved in other areas such as the addition of online multiplayer co-op in the campaign. All of these Halo's will feature online competitive multiplayer. It is expected that this game will be successful. This is not the inherent problem with the future of Halo. [b][i]Will 343i be able to sustain the Halo franchise when they no longer can depend on remaking games developed by Bungie?[/i] [/b] [i]Halo 5 must bring innovation and balance[/i] in order for future Halo installments to thrive. If this game does not deliver, I believe that Halo will lose a significant amount of momentum. Because 343i does not have a reputable track record, I do not believe that it is justifiable to choose an Xbox One for Destiny and the future of Halo. On the Xbox One, individuals will have access to Halo and Destiny--the best of both worlds. However, I believe [i]Destiny will harbor longevity[/i] in its life-span. In contrast, Halo will experience short-term success with the MCC and lose steam with future, non-remake installments. My predictions are based primarily upon my gameplay experience with Halo's 1-4, the Halo: CE remake, the Destiny Alpha, and the track records of Bungie and 343i. Remember, this is just my [i][u]opinion[/u][/i]. Your perspective may be different. [b]Destiny will be a great game on either system, but do you prefer Halo & Destiny [i][u]or[/u][/i] Destiny & Exclusive content? Let me know your reasoning in the comment section below! [/b] *I highly respect all of my commentators, regardless of opinion. No matter what system you play Destiny on, the Bungie community is about unity and supporting fellow members. [i]We are all on the same team.[/i]
