    Isn't Destiny supposed to be a PS3/PS4 game as well? Can't see it putting too much of a damper on Sony's reveal if it is :p

    Exclusives are pretty much a thing of the past these days, Publishers make far more money from having it released across all the consoles that are possible. To make something an exclusive, the Console Studios either have to buy out the company or spend a silly amount of money to make it exclusive. The second option just doesn't happen these days, compared to the past when it was quite a common practise, but the games industry was nowhere near as big as it is now.

    Perhaps with Bungie though, they have something of a special relationship with Microsoft and may well have been given very early access to the new hardware, as it benefits both companies by having a launch/near launch title which may be fantastic. It would then be on other systems for sure.

    Luckily it looks like it's coming out on both (hopefully at the same time). Still, I'm excited to see what they announce regarding the game. Would be awesome to see some gameplay or hear more about the game itself :D And yeah, going to be dying of anticipation with this and Sony's reveal next week!

    All of the halo team left bungie so I highly doubt it will be that similar.

    I wonder how much of a reveal this will be though. Maybe a short trailer showing of the engine and in-game assets yet none of the gameplay and features are shown/explained? When it was Halo we knew what we were going to be getting (roughly) but a total new IP, we have no idea what type of game this is yet!

    With Bungie invited a lot of press to their studios to show off the game though I'm guessing their will be at least some written opinions on what Destiny is like/about.

    Still love the Marathon games they did, a hark back to those would be immense.

    Destiny's/Bungies site? Site I linked had a 2 minute trailer or so...

    The stream Q/A thingy that they are doing now on the site I linked just said it will be on 360 and PS3, but also next gen consoles too apparently although no names specified because they can't say the names of those consoles so that's cool. Apparently no PC too... I think I heard all that correctly xD

    Their art looks like a cross between Killzone, Halo and Star Wars. :D

    I've been watching the IGN stream, really looking forward to this now. The visuals from in game are definitely next-gen.
