Sony: We're Treating Destiny Like a First-Party Release

Platform holder going hard on Bungie's next big thing

You’ve probably already noticed, but Sony is backing Destiny hard. The manufacturer is often criticised for its poor marketing, but ever since the PlayStation 4’s launch last year, it’s done a brilliant job of putting its latest platform in the face of consumers. And that strategy has...

Destiny Becomes Legend with 1.02 PS4 Patch Ahead of Formal Release

Last minute tweaks

Bungie’s now flipped the switch on Destiny’s online servers, but if you’ve just received your copy of the game, you have some waiting to do before you can join the first-person fray. The title’s inaugural PlayStation 4 patch has hit Sony’s servers overnight, and you’ll be required to download the 296MB update before...

When Will Destiny's PS4 Servers Go Online?

Live in a few days

It’s the ultimate first world problem: you’ve extracted your pre-release copy of Activision’s mega shooter Destiny from its sleek shrink wrap, but the servers aren’t yet prepared for you to play online, transforming your brand new Blu-ray into something of an overpriced drinks coaster – after all, who wants to play...

PlayStation Gets a PS4 Destiny Bundle and Oodles of DLC, While Xbox Gets Eau De Destiny

We smell trouble

Better hunker down, because a new storm's brewing in the ongoing — and non-existent — console war. You may already know this all too well, but Sony has a marketing deal with Activision and Bungie regarding imminent sci-fi shooter, Destiny. This essentially means that every advert for the title you see, whether it's on a...

Destiny's Live Action Trailer is About as Cheesy as You Can Possibly Get

But still kinda cool

As we edge ever closer to Destiny's release next week, developer Bungie seems to be going all-out with media for the game. We've already had two videos this week detailing the exclusive content coming to PlayStation platforms, but the time has finally come for the title's inevitable live action trailer. As if the headline...

The harder they fall

The level 18 Dust Palace co-op Strike mission is part of PlayStation's exclusive Destiny content, and like with the Exodus Blue competitive multiplayer map, we're getting a sneak peek at it thanks to a smart new trailer. The Strike takes place on Mars where you'll face off against the burly Cabal vanguard, and it all looks...

Here's a Look at Destiny's PlayStation Exclusive Multiplayer Map

Just for you

Destiny's getting a bunch of PlayStation exclusive content when it launches next week, including a multiplayer map named Exodus Blue. As such, Sony's released a quick video that shows off the location in action. Much like the beta's available maps, this new addition seems to have a nice balance between enclosed areas and dangerously...

Pre-Ordered Destiny and CoD: Advanced Warfare? Congrats, You get an Armour Shader

Bet you're over the moon

We've all sat and watched as pre-order bonuses have gotten crazier over time, as near pointless trinkets are offered up as a way to entice us into hitting that big colourful 'add to basket' button. But what happens when you pre-order not one, but two different games before a set date? Well, mega publisher Activision has the...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Proves You Should Avoid Bridges in the Future

They're likely to collapse

We’d argue that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves had the greatest ever set-pieces, but Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was host to some pretty spectacular ones, too. In many ways, that game's playable cinematic moments paved the blueprints for Activision’s first-person franchise as it rose through the commercial ranks, and...

Bungie Details Destiny's Competitive Multiplayer and Clarifies PlayStation Exclusive Content

Bang for your buck

Outside of the alpha and beta, we haven't heard or seen much regarding Destiny's competitive multiplayer offering. Both downloadable sneak peeks only offered one game type — control — so it's about time that we got a better look at the sci-fi shooter's various modes. And this trailer

Blink and you'll miss it

If you didn’t tune in to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s live competitive multiplayer reveal, then you’ll have missed out on some awkward developer smack talk. You’ll also have skipped on your very first look at the online mode in action. Fortunately, we’ve included the title’s three minute reveal in the space...

Five Ways Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Multiplayer Will Pull the Property into the Future

Power changes everything

You could never describe Call of Duty: Ghosts as a bad game. It was predictable without a doubt, but it was an entertaining enough distraction for a few weeks. Of course, Activision sets its standards higher than that, and it wouldn’t be in control of the biggest first-person property on the planet if it didn’t. Call...
