  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 12:59:01 AM
    He's talking about Bungie and Destiny, which will come to the PS4.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 12:59:08 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 12:59:12 AM
    Now for some footage from Destiny.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 12:59:12 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 12:59:22 AM
    But first, a little spiel from Bungie via video.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 12:59:42 AM
    Destiny is "Bungie's next great FPS."
  • dan.ackerman 2/21/2013 12:59:59 AM
    Saw a bit of Destiny the other week -- looks cool, but different enough from Halo?
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:00:03 AM
    It's a persistent online world where players customize and upgrade their characters. They play cooperatively.
  • Jeff Bakalar 2/21/2013 1:00:04 AM
    Anyone got an outlet?
  • Jeff Bakalar 2/21/2013 1:00:57 AM
    I'm not sure Destiny has been able to generate the buzz Bungie has wanted to
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:01:03 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:01:03 AM
    I trust the Bungie guys implicitly. I've played nearly all of their Halo games. Psyched about Destiny.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:01:09 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:01:11 AM
    EA says it's the world's first "shared world shooter."
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:01:16 AM
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:01:22 AM
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:01:28 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:01:30 AM
    Okay, the team from Bungie are on stage to talk about Destiny.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:01:33 AM
  • dan.ackerman 2/21/2013 1:01:38 AM
    I do, however, love the idea of persistent games with a strong single-player backbone.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:01:51 AM
    Destiny is the perfect fit for the PS4, Bungie says.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:02:03 AM
    Destiny is designed to entertain you for years to come.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:02:21 AM
    Both the PS4 and PS3 versions will be available, and there will be exclusive content for the Playstation community.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:02:36 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:02:40 AM
    I believe Destiny was slotted to launch this year, but it's been likely pushed back to 2014.
  • Jeff Bakalar 2/21/2013 1:02:40 AM
    So there you have it, another title to debut on PS3/PS4 simultaneously.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:02:41 AM
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:02:46 AM
  • dan.ackerman 2/21/2013 1:02:50 AM
    As I suspected -- Destiny coming to both PS3 and PS4 -- but who is going to want the gimped PS3 version?
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:02:52 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:03:11 AM
    House is back on stage. It looks like things are wrapping up.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:03:27 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:03:40 AM
    It'll launch holiday 2013.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:03:52 AM
    Now for a highlight reel of the games we just saw.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:04:00 AM
    There you have it, the PS4 in all its glory.
  • Jeff Bakalar 2/21/2013 1:04:08 AM
    Wait what? THey're ending it? Not even a peek at the new console?
  • dan.ackerman 2/21/2013 1:04:30 AM
    Ok, so -- no price, no date, no configs, etc. pretty standard for a modern console launch.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:04:37 AM
    Oh right, with all the games shown off, we didn't actually get to see the hardware.
  • Jeff Bakalar 2/21/2013 1:05:21 AM
    Wow. Very surprised there's no actual hardware.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:05:24 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:05:29 AM
    I actually thought they would show off the console.
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:05:33 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:05:40 AM
    We just saw a bunch of highlight videos, but no actual product.
  • Jeff Bakalar 2/21/2013 1:05:41 AM
    Think about all the people who flew out here for this! To see trailers...
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:05:47 AM
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:05:54 AM
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:05:59 AM
  • sarahtew 2/21/2013 1:06:06 AM
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:06:26 AM
    Well, we're wrapping things up. Sarah's posting the last of the photos.
  • Roger Cheng 2/21/2013 1:06:40 AM
    I hope you enjoyed the live blog.
