We already knew the game wouod not be cross platform (xbox playing playstation) but, I just read an article today where one of the developers mentioned that destiny would [b]NOT[/b] be cross generation capable by choice. This is unfortunate considering this means my friends and i will no longer be able to play the game together. Why not instead of dissallowing it perhaps making it a selection say in a matchmaking tab in the settings menu. By default just your console would be selected putting you just in games with folks of your console, but if you select more options the system would allow you to then be paired with players of those consoles who have conversly selected yours (ex. Xbox360 player selects xbox one as well allowing him to play with xbox one players who have also selected to play with xbox 360 players)

  • Yeah their argument for no cross gen is weak at best. Oh it's unbalanced in pvp. Cool, let me play pve with my ps3 friends and disable cross gen for pvp. Bam. Done

    • I don't see why we can't have cross gen when the XB1/PS4 versions are held back by last gen consoles anyways I mean the only difference between the gens are graphics

        Bungie engineer Roger Wolfson, says this is because better tech can influence gameplay factors in the shooter genre. "I'll speak for the hypothetical player," Wolfson told Digital Trends. "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." "Regardless of where the reality is, there's definitely a perception among gamers that better hardware means you have an advantage. We don't want to have to enter that fray, so to create the best, most level playing field, both actually and perceptually, we separated it by platform."

        Worst idea. There's be to many compatibility bug they'd have to work through work. I'd rather them spend there time on more worthwhile projects

          • Everyone is disappointed by something aren't they? No game will ever please you people, expect it to have literally EVERYTHING you can possibly think of.

              • getting micro$oft and $ony agree for cross platform would be damn near impossible. and they chose not to do cross generational because the higher graphics would give next geners a [i]slight[/i] edge over last geners in pvp. and god knows the only advantage anyone should have in pvp is if theyre playing a hunter lol.

                  Knew from day one it would not be possible fore xbox users, was never sure about ps. Problem comes from the 360 and xbone servers are totally different and could not both be supported on the save server.

                    Cross platform shouldn't have been expected, but cross gen would have been cool. Their sole reasoning for no cross gen was the PvP balance due to graphics and performance. A separate set next gen servers just for PvP wouldn't be taxing, I mean they already have them made now. Explore, story, strike, and raids would be pretty cool if if was cross gen.

                  • I absolutely was but Bungie is too lazy to do it. Just look at it, 1 explorable zone per planet, no cross gen, and proximity chat, no map chat and no matchmaking for raids... GG

                    • I wish it was cross platform. It was one thing I heard (and now realize it is false) that made me want the game. I knew people on Xbox that wanted it and so I got it for PS4. Now we still can't play. But the reasoning in there is sort of an ok reason. But at the same time, we need to sperate those on DSL and Cable. Then after that we need to seperate by connection speeds. I can't begin to describe how often in other fps games I have had a lag issue with the difference of connections. So, while I support the game, and plan on enjoying it for some time, I wish this would have been thought through a little more.
