It looks like Destiny is shaping up to be an amazing game. However, if you want the best experience, Bungie is seemingly pushing people towards the PS4 version of the game, whilst being happy to admit that the PS4 is the lead platform ahead of Xbox One.
It is the Destiny PS4 and PS3 exclusives that has become a major talking point this week though, as those getting the game on PS4 can look forward to content that won’t be available on Xbox for a long time.
If you thought that the never-ending COD exclusive agreement for 30 days with Microsoft was ridiculous, you may want to look away now. Sony fans will be having the last laugh it seems as information has been leaked revealing that Destiny exclusive content on PS4 and PS3 will run for a YEAR until it features on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
This is unprecedented in the gaming industry and a very surprising move from any perspective looking in. The information has once again come from an Amazon leak, which says that bonus Destiny maps, weapons, ships and gear will stay on PlayStation until Fall 2015.
While it’s not a confirmation yet, we see time and time again that Amazon leaks are usually trustworthy and if true, that is a very long time to wait if you are picking up an Xbox One or Xbox 360 version of Destiny.
The game has a release date of September 9 on all platforms, so it looks like Sony and Activision may have come to an agreement for a massive timed-exclusive agreement that will run over three times the length of the Activision and Microsoft deal for Call of Duty.
We can’t imagine how much money Sony would have had to pay Activision and Bungie if this information is true. Considering the love affair that Bungie used to have with Microsoft for Halo, this is definitely going to be a shock to some Xbox One owners who were looking forward to the game releasing in September.
What is your reaction to this? Could you argue that by September 2015, gamers may not be interested in Destiny anymore, making this DLC seem permanent on PlayStation?
Let us know which version of the game you will be getting – PS4 or Xbox One.
