  1. The numbers below show that Sony doesn't have to counter. Here are some figures provided by VGChartz with some numbers to digest. As of the end of 2013, Microsoft stated that they had sold over 3 million Xbox One units. Playstation released figures showing they had sold over 4.2 million units by the end of 2013. (Keep these figures in mind) As of January 18, 2014, VGChartz shows Microsoft global sales of Xbox One at ~3.275 million units. The same chart shows Playstation 4 global sales at ~4.741 million units. Now that brings Xbox One sales to ~275,000 units in 18 days. In the same timeframe, Playstation 4 sales increased ~541,000 units, nearly TWICE as many units than it's competition. The PS3 was only behind Xbox One Global sales in a week by ~5,800 units. There's more... Global software. The PS3 outsold Xbox 360 software sales in a week by 263,713 units while PS4 outsold Xbox One software sales by 2,413 units. US Software Pre-orders. In the Top 30 alone, Xbox One had 724,114 units of software pre-ordered, PS3 had 765,391 units pre-ordered and the PS4 had 859,712 units pre-ordered. The PS3 alone had more software pre-orders than Xbox One software. All information was gathered at http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/41658/Global/ and http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/. *As a side note... as of January 18, 2014, VGChartz shows Halo Xbox One only had 46,523 units pre-ordered in the US. **Side-side note. I am personally still able to purchase the "Day One Edition" Xbox One at several local retailers.

  5. GameInformer sits down with Bungie Design Lead Lars Bakken and discusses details about Destiny's competitive multiplayer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9dn3Cz1RU8&list=PLoAFmgzYW18IzU40riUzmVNY-WrWtsicd&feature=player_detailpage A few interesting points of emphasis are the talks of bringing your character that you rank up and customize in single player campaign over to multiplayer matchmaking. Lars commented that Destiny multiplayer matches are "definitely faster" than Halo multiplayer matches and "more lethal". Health and armor was also discussed which Lars stated..."As armor bleeds down you move to health and the squishy parts of the Guardian physique" and the amount of health will be class specific as well with the Titan having slightly more than other classes. Bungie is trying a different approach to voice chat by only granting chat with your fireteam but are "doing other things to let you communicate with other players". Destiny will allow up to 6-player teams and if you join a multiplayer match with less than the maximum number, the spots will be auto-filled by a random player without direct chat to them unless you invite them to a platform specific chat. Destiny is scheduled to be released September 9, 2014 with an early Beta scheduled for Summer 2014. You can check other interesting videos about Destiny from GameInformer here >>> http://www.gameinformer.com/p/destiny.aspx!! New information scheduled to be released December 23, 2014.

  7. Great MoM post Sparky! Look how far you've come! I have the utmost respect for you for accepting the um... "guidance" I gave you lol. I'm proud of you bud. Keep up the good work and never let the "spark" go out! ~ Choot P.S. - Pinned.
  8. Now that the little ones are down for the night, I want to take the time to give you proper thanks. We joined the site around the same time. Then it was a small (under 5,000 member), close-knit community with a common interest... Halo. I witnessed your transition from purple to blue, blue to yellow, and yellow to orange. The time and energy invested could never be measured as even when you were not on site, you still worked diligently behind the scenes to help shape what we see today. Your latest effort of bridging the gap between Halo sites is a feat that still baffles me, requiring you to be in constant contact with affiliates and maintaining a repor that would bring the communities together. You never asked for thanks. You did it because of the passion you had for the game and the general desire to give us the best experience a forum could offer. Thank you for helping shape this community. Thank you for the energy you brought to the community. Thank you for the laughter and pranks. Thank you for the endless hours of gaming and the endless hours of conversation. Most of all... thank you for the friendship you offer. Oh and for those that would like to check out one of his first posts, click the link below. Took quite a bit of digging but found it lol. http://www.343industries.org/forum/topic/858-hey-there/?hl=absolute Later.... MOOK!

  13. The recent release of Destiny:_The_Moon revealed a little taste of what's to come when you land there in your travels including "Hellmouth", an area that the Hive have claimed their own. In Bungie's recent Weekly_Update get a pretty good explanation of Hellmouth by Lead Environment Artist Sam Jones along with a few fresh images. “The Hellmouth has one function only – to ask of the player what lies within.” Sam Jones, Lead Environment Artist The first step toward realizing the Hellmouth was to create a 2D concept expressing these themes. Mark Goldsworthy’s awesome concept (above) became the picture postcard for the Moon – a visual blueprint from which all subsequent lunar assets have been generated. The Hellmouth is essentially a huge slice of Hive architecture. Dorje Bellbrook’s concept (above) conveys many different visual themes for our Hive spaces – accentuated sense of scale, menace, and a hefty touch of the exotic without being too alien. The maw of the Hellmouth takes these principles and expands them to a colossal scale. The Hellmouth is a fortress cored deep into the Moon. This structure was always designed to conjure up imagery associated with a medieval castle. Darren Bacon’s concept for the Gatehouse (above) conveys many appropriate themes for the Hive: including mystery, darkness, evil, strength and militarism. We also wanted to instill visual cohesion throughout. This super heavy chain runs down deep into the dark dungeons beneath the Fortress – imprisoning the Hive’s most fearsome denizens. It’s a visual anchor point for those exploring the inner sanctum of the Hive. Plus it looks badass and fits right into the whole accentuated gothic air of the Hive aesthetic. Using Grognok, our awesome world creation software, I was able to take the next logical step and create a ‘3D concept.’ Grognok has some incredible terrain generation and manipulation tools. Creating initial geometry that describes classic lunar terrain was unbelievably easy. I can literally sculpt the living grey model geometry, replicating pitch-perfect lunar crater patterns with great speed and finesse. This awesome Hellmouth 2D concept image (above), is essentially a paintover. Darren Bacon took a screenshot of the in-game geometry and embellished it in Photoshop to take the whole affair to the next level. Finally, we see some of the final in-engine geometry, informed by Darren’s incredibly useful paintover. I personally am looking forward to visiting "Hellmouth" along with friends and take back what is rightfully ours... The moon!!! See you on it's darkside!!
