Game Overview

Destiny is a first-person shooter that is developed by Bungie Software, for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. It is the first game created by Bungie that has appeared on Sony platforms, and it is one of the highest-selling games to make its debut, surpassing $500 million.

Humanity has gone through a golden age, thanks to a mysterious object known as The Traveler. Lifespan increased greatly, technology thrived, and the planets of the Solar System were populated. However, this age ceased when humanity was nearly wiped into extinction. A massive enemy, The Darkness, seeks to end humanity. The player is a Guardian, a human with the power of the traveler, and must use the power to stop the Darkness and save humanity.

@teamsilent13 - Please use your head.
CoD is the most popular shooter, period.
Having peaks around 20K is still
impressive and most games would love to
have it.

Five or six COD games each separately
have more players than Halo 4. Like I
said all you have to do is look at
message boards and everyone who has been
with Halo from Halo 2 or earlier will
say it's the worse. Halo 4 was a
failure and 343i even acknowledged
problems which is why Halo 5 looks to be
very different and has a year early
multiplayer beta. It sold 9 million
copies and struggled to hit weekend
peaks at 20k. That's not normal for any
popular game. Hence why it fell below 5
call of duty titles on the live chart
and Majornelson stopped posting the blog
because all the comments were bashing
Halo 4 and Gears Judgement.

6.41 retail sales alone and the best
selling PS4 game to date. Anybody think
when the holiday numbers come in,
Destiny will be the best seller on X1? I
say no. Titanfall will probably move
enough numbers to stay ahead of Destiny
and Halo Master Chief Collection is
going to stall X1 sales of Destiny big
time in my opinion. That said, I do
think Destiny on the X1 will reach 2
million lifetime sales.

though, 6.4 million on retail alone is
nothing to sneeze at.

@teamsilent13 - Halo 4 was universally
hated? I can find many people playing
Halo 4 at any given moment. Hyperbole

Quite frankly, online shooters
aren't as popular as they once were and
everybody complains about the most
recent game not being as good as the
previous games. So let not pretend
population decline and complaints are
limited to Halo.

Regardless, Halo 4
remains a very popular online shooter.
The only games with bigger populations
than Halo 4 are also popular games.

I am only speaking on behalf of the
majority of the community as seen on
youtube, the mlg pro community, ect. You
can find countless threads and posts on
this topic by googling via neogaf, the
official waypoint halo forum, youtube.
You don't know what you are talking
about because Halo 4's online
population and insane dropoff after just
a couple months is proof the game was
universally hated.
