People please stop saying that...

...Destiny will be a MMO. This isn't true because Destiny won't be a server based game. Destiny being a MMO was the oldest rumor about the game and we all know it's not true! You can play Destiny co-op like Boarderlands but you can also meet random online people who are near you on the map like the PSN-title "Journey" or "Home". Because of this feature (that Ubi's Watchdogs is likely also going to use), the game might feel/sound like a MMO but it isn't one. Also, current-gen consoles can't handle MMO's [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CrazzySnipe55 Also, their declaration that it is not an MMO and the use of language like MMO-elements rather than calling it an FPSMMO in the contract makes me think it's not an MMO. There would be no reason to be coy in the contract between the two companies directly related to the game who know everything about it. If it was an MMOFPS, the contract would've said "MMOFPS" or MMOS or MMOTPS or something that put the stamp of "MMO" on the game rather than putting an asterisk on "action shooter" which notes that the game will have missions and a persistent world. Also, Bungie would be totally alienating their casual/off-lining fanbase (of which there is a fare amount). ©[/quote] Discuss [Edited on 12.02.2012 2:19 AM PST]

  • [quote]You really are pulling a lot of facts out of nowhere. Care to share some of your sources instead of using only your opinion?[/quote] How about MMO theorists give me their sources first! Bungie already stated that it won't be a MMO. The gameplay described by the Demonware employee sounds like what I describe in the OP to me...

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] burritosenior That. Because that's just flat out wrong. Phantasy Star Universe is a Console MMO.[/quote] Phantasy Star Universe wasn't an MMO. It was a Multiplayer Action RPG (and a pretty terrible one at that). A better example would be Phantasy Star Online 2, a pretty amazing game that actually is being ported to the Playstation Vita and is fully compatible with the PC version through cross play. But even then, that isn't an MMO.

I don't recall hearing this. I know in the contract it said it would be a shooter, but it didn't specify which perspective. In the demonware blog some people said it felt like Halo, but does that mean it's in first person? No. So, where is it said to be in first person? It's easy to assume since Bungie has been doing first person shooters for a long time, and this game is a shooter, that Destiny is a FPS, but we don't know. I would love for it to be in first person, but the fact is we don't know what perspective the game is in. Unless you have a source to prove otherwise?[/quote] I was going off of memory...I thought the contract said it was an fps.

  • The fact of the matter is we don't know if it will be a mmo or not and neither do you. We can all speculate for now but the truth is that information resides with Bungie and they are holding all info pretty tight right now. I honestly would like to see it become an mmo just to have a great game that will have involvement on a larger scale. But, solely because it is coming on xbox first and pc a [u] year [/u] later it is more likely to just have really great multiplayer options.
