It should at least mean they can get much more powerful hardware at a reasonable price. It will be interesting to compare the same game on both this and next gen and see where most improvement has been made.
Will it just be a graphical upgrade or will the next gen version have loads of extra content?

Bungie just released this;
Image


The bright dots represent "1". The dim dots represent "0".

The grid provided is 7x21

If counted top-->bottom, then left-->right, the dots would represent 1010111, 1000101, so on and so forth...

This 7x21 grid creates 21 seven digits binary numbers(the length of each column), which are just one digit off from being ASCII (8 binary digits is one "keyboard" character in ASCII).

In order to remedy this we append a 0 to the left of each number like seen here (Much like how 045 is the same thing as 45, 01010111 is the same thing as 1010111 so we don't end up changing the actual value.).

When converted to text through the ASCII encoding, it says "WE'RE STILL DARK, BRO", which is 21 characters long, the length of each row.



Let the Speculation, Commence.

MS must have passed up on their contract to get a one year window on this then if you do that already.

I bet Sony have money hatted it as a ps4 exclusive!

MS had an agreement with Bungie that they have the first refusal or something like that, for their next game.

Of course that could be bullshit.

Big orb looks dump as strawberry float.

The soldiers all look as "future scifi" generic as strawberry float.

The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament.

well it seemed to be strongly believed at the time that part of their terms was first refusal.

Thinking about it that might have been as publisher and thus it going to Activision means it was always day one multi format.

Day / Time / Location: TBD
Track / Duration / Format / Audience Level: Visual Arts , Design / 60-Minute / Lecture / All
GDC Vault Recording: TBD
Description: Two decades of success in the gaming industry is no small feat, but after ten years of Halo, Bungie found themselves faced with a tremendous challenge: to build a whole new world, filled with even more amazing mysteries, places, creatures, and opportunities for player investment. For the first time ever, Bungie creative directors will discuss their world building techniques, from concept to production. Attendees will walk away with key insights into Bungie's battle-tested design process. They'll get a glimpse of the brave new world that has been built, a place where the next ten years of great Bungie adventures will unfold.
Takeaway: In a presentation filled with concept art and design case studies, attendees will learn about Bungie's world building pillars, and see how these were put to use to create Bungie's next great universe of games.
Intended Audience: While the talk is focused on art and design collaboration, takeaways will be useful for members of all game development disciplines who are eager to improve their team's world building process. There are no prerequisites.

So, our game is called Destiny.

In a matter of days, we're going to give you your first glimpse into the vision and ambition that's driving the creation of our brave new world. To make room for the resulting chatter, we've launched some official social media channels. There’s a new Destiny page to like on Facebook, a new Destiny feed to follow on Twitter, and a new Destiny page on Google+. And, of course, we've opened a new Destiny forum here on Bungie.net where you can discuss upcoming news.


Welcome to the official Destiny Facebook page. Official Destiny news is coming soon!

You can be the first to see the reveal of Destiny right here on Feb. 17 (T-Minus 5 days)

Looking forward to the ten second CGI teaser trailer of the game's logo.

Major Nelson retweeted the opening 2 tweets from the Destiny account. Hopefully it's your usual Bungie viddoc. Could be an interesting opening shot in the next-gen wars if the 1st game is next-gen exclusive to Durango like those contracts said.

Yeah I was thinking that if they do indeed show off some actual gameplay then there's a small chance we could get our first glimpse at the sort of graphics the next Xbox may be capable of.

I felt their latter Halo games were slightly disappointing but from what's been said or leaked of Destiny it does sound like a pretty interesting concept. Looking forward to get our first concrete details on the game - whether it actually is a MMO for a start.

Felling: When you believing in something which will turn out exceptional.

If Major Nelson retweeted then it means Microsoft are behind this and they want to steal the thunder from the new PlayStation!
I love competition, but this seems a bit underhand.
