Destiny pre-order page lists PS4, Xbox 720, PC, Vita & Wii U in source code

Tuesday, 19th February 2013 11:47 GMT By Dave Cook

Destiny’s formats haven’t been made concretely clear by developer Bungie beyond PS3 and Xbox 360, but the source code of the game’s pre-order page throws up a list of current and next-gen formats.

Over on the Destiny pre-order page, you can see clearly an Xbox 360 packshot. However, the source code of the page includes the following strings:

pc: “platform-pc”,
ps3: “platform-ps3″,
ps4: “platform-ps4″,
xbox: “platform-xbox”,
xbox720: “platform-xbox720″,
wiiu: “platform-wiiu”,
psvista: “platform-psvita”

This could just be place-holder however, similar to studios registering many domain names to cover all bases, but we could be looking at an epic multi-format deal between Bungie and Activision. That said, Activision is no stranger to pumping out games across almost every format imaginable.

Meanwhile, Activision has confirmed that Destiny will not release in 2013, and wants us to all stop guessing when it’s out. Spoilsports.

Thanks Nintendo Life.

    Seems like standard Activision practice, because the buy page for Black Ops 2 also has it.

    @2 Most people call a vacuum cleaner a Hoover. Its about popularisation and as the majority of the internet has known it as the 720, then that is perfectly acceptable. Until MS tell us and by extension you what its actually called.
    Anyway, on topic, I can see it being PC as well as everything else despite what matey said on the subject. Acti are smarter than that. Even if purely business driven, they wont cut their nose off to spite their face.

    @6 All good, I should’ve been more specific.

    @7 No excuse. Just telling him what I really meant, don’t care if random from the internet believes me or not.

    Anybody who puts a pre-order down for a game that’s a year away should have their gaming license pulled.

    I agree with the general sentiment; 720 is perfectly acceptable (and logical) until MS gives us something else to work with.

    @9 No need for you as far I see it either.

    You’re a waste of blood and skin as far as I can tell who has about as much to contribute to this site as Rob Mugabe at a peace summit.

    Do one.

    @ O.G. I just think everyone is on edge and cranky because of the anticipation about the 20th. I’m sure Dave Cook is going to be much more relaxed and less snappy after tomorrow ;)

    Hahaha, I think tomorrow is going to be a fanboi bloodbath and whilst it’ll be fun to watch early on especially if the whole news feed ends up being about the Eyepad :)

    The funny part for me is the increase in throw away, never heard of before, alt accounts over the last few days.
