Leaked Destiny Xbox One Beta Footage Appears Online; Looks Great

by on July 11, 2014 8:34 PM 263

Apparently someone is already enjoying the beta version of Destiny on Xbox One, as two clips from it were leaked today, showing roughly a minute of gameplay.

The videos definitely look authentic, especially since XboxClips takes them directly from Microsoft’s systems, and they cannot be uploaded manually, so there’s really no way to fake them. You can check them out directly at the following links: Video 1, Video 2 (Update 2: the original videos have been promptly removed).

It’s relevant to mention that the clips have been recorded with the GameDVR feature of the Xbox One, so there definitely is a rather high degree of compression lowering the overall quality of the footage.

After impressing alpha testers on PS4, the game definitely seems to look great on Xbox One as well. Of course we’ll have t wait for the beta to kick off on July 23rd to pass final judgement, but so far, so good.

Update: added the embedded videos below (alongside a couple spares, just in case) for easier visualization. Enjoy!

    I’m glad both versions of the game that we’ve seen look like a quality experience. Hopefully it’ll play smoothly on the 360 and PS3 too, even if it won’t look as pretty. It’s a shame the servers can’t be linked into one big four-version nexus though.

    • Da GeeZ

      ‘ It’s a shame the servers can’t be linked into one big four-version nexus though. ‘

      I’m totally up for this, providing that we have the option to set all ps3 and ps4 players to ‘MUTE’, that way the intelligent among us don’t have to listen to moronic comments and arguments.

      • Mr_JtowN

        I was almost okay with this comment until I saw the whole “set all ps3 and ps4 players to ‘MUTE’. .really!? You couldn’t say mute for all the teenagers, drama queens, etc. it had be the sony players. .wow. .that’s completely unnecessary.

        • HerX

          well, that would make more sense, but then it wouldn’t fuel the hate in these kids here in the comment section :)

        • Sucka Free

          Yeah, if you think you’re reading so intelligent dialog from Da GeeZ, all the means is that you haven’t read far enough

      • You are flat out wrong

        I’d rather not have to play with the Xbot cancer at all.

        • Gekko36

          See you’re bringing cancer into this equation. Makes you a bit of a c@nt!

          • You are flat out wrong

            You are what you are. I can’t help that. :^)

  • jsk1103

    Another way to tell its X1 is and sorry for forgetting which vid. But on one of them the player does a melee and screen prompts to press (rb) which obviously is an Xbox button

    But yea. The game does look really good. Can’t wait

  • http://www.youtube.com/PathOfJioFreed Danny DeMent

    Were people expecting it to look bad?

    • king_of_spades

      yes actually. you wouldnt believe how many sony fanboys were talking about how bad it would look

      • http://www.youtube.com/PathOfJioFreed Danny DeMent

        You’re right, I wouldn’t. Especially since I’ve never seen one say it. Just that it wouldn’t look AS good as the PS4 has more power.

        But hey…

        • king_of_spades

          not speaking on people solely on this site.

          • Dickbutt

            He means N4G.

          • Neco The Sergal

            N4G is pretty full of hate-mongering pseudo-intellectuals.

            Most users there still trashtalk MGS5 in a self-entitled demeanour

          • king_of_spades

            N4G is definitely part of it

          • http://www.youtube.com/PathOfJioFreed Danny DeMent

            Been on N4G. Very few there either, other than obvious trolls.

            Still a pretty baseless accusation. But again. It looks the way people expected it to, yay.

      • Not_true

        You’re making things up again.

        • superkarma

          He does have a tendency to do that quite a bit.

          • king_of_spades

            says the fanboy who attacked a xbox article for them wanting to make more AAA games

          • superkarma

            Attacked? Lol, I didn’t attack anyone/anything. Go back to your corner and play the victim card some more. We all know how you Xbox fanboys love to do that.

          • Dickbutt

            Guys, this little pissing match doesn’t do anyone good, just hug it out and agree to disagree. Seriously, this is coming from someone named Dickbutt.

          • http://www.sony.com Based Sony

            Xbot in disguise.
            You should be rooting for the winning team my friend, the one that doesn’t mindless label others.

          • Gekko36

            The winning team?…. Seriously. You are talking about a toy… a very expensive toy, but a toy none the less. As to your comment you just did mindlessly label another with the exlaimed “Xbot in disguise”

            I personally don’t care if the Japs or the Yanks win or lose, though history tells us that both Sony and Microsoft can be C@NTS

          • Not_true

            That “based sony” troll is the pc mustard race troll that’s been banned here a dozen times on a joke account.

          • http://www.sony.com Based Sony

            How am I a troll?
            If you notice my posts are quite similar to various other posts, including yours. Are those trolls too?

          • Not_true

            You’re not fooling anyone mustard.

          • http://www.sony.com Based Sony

            Yeah, because I’m not trying to fool anyone.

            I’m a PS fan, not an Xbot. We don’t do that kind of thing, they do and only they do.

          • HerX

            Both of them are getting their moneyz shipped in trucks, so I think neither of them are on the loosing side. Just be glad there is a competition, because that’s the only reason why we’re getting so much quality games.

          • Fake_of_Silva

            The losing side is the side of the bunch of morons starting mindless war against each other, while all the producers and developers are becoming more and more rich.

          • Black Heaven

            It is nice to have a competition, a healthy one. I don’t think anyone would like unchecked monopoly.

            Heck, Jack and Phil even had a pic together.

            PR if you would like to call it, but I hope fans could do the same to each other.

          • king_of_spades

            ok fanboy. lmfao sony fanboy

          • superkarma

            Says the Microsoft fanboy.

        • king_of_spades

          how am i making things up? people have been saying it would look much better on ps4 and xb1 and 360 wont look much different from each other. nothing to make up

          • Sumyung

            Admin can you ban this blatant troll please?

        • http://www.sony.com Based Sony

          Yeah, he is.

          I’ve never seen comments here that state that all multiplats look better on PS4 OR that Destiny will look better on PS4. The based team is really quite fair in judgement. I dare you, look in any Destiny article and try to find it (and no, one or two examples don’t count need at least 15).
          Just more lies spread by Xbots.

          • jsk1103

            Ok I can’t speak about here as much. But I have seen especially in the drive club articles. Such anger lol

            As for destiny. Head on over to the X1 forums at gamefaqs

            People get roasted by Sony fans on the X1 board. Wtf!!!

          • Black Heaven

            I have been there at one time. Quite unfortunate.

            I care not for fanboys of both sides duking it out, but they’re involving those other gamefaqs users who just happen to enjoy a different platform.

          • Not_true

            Obvious joke account troll.

      • someguy

        You FULL OF SHITTTT

      • GameDev345

        This is an accusation that turned into an unnecessary fanboy argument, and you seem to have no proof to back it up

        It is clear by now that multiplats look and perform better on the PS4, but your specific accusation seems to have no base to stand on

      • Michael Norris

        Dude Bungie gimped the version so it would play the same on all platforms.The game should be running 60fps on both Ps4/Xone.The Ps4 version would have better SSAO and AA and better frame rate and other graphical advantages.

        • Da GeeZ

          I take it that comment is a fully informed one, backed up by facts and the ability to show references? I’m assuming there’s no facts behind your comment, you are sounding like a sonyfanboy… so facts and referenced materiel don’t come into the equation.

          • Michael Norris

            Dude Ps4 is more powerful it will look better overall.All i am saying is Bungie could had pushed both consoles to 60fps if they wanted.The graphics engine isn’t that demanding,On the fanboy comment,i was just speaking the truth if it hurts you then don’t read it.

          • HerX

            maybe it is, but it’s not that much more powerful as you tried to portray it. There’s no way it could run the game with all that you listed, well there is, but it wouldn’t be 1080p for all those AAs and eyecandy.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Hey Alex, remember how Sniper Elite 3 was supposed to be at parity on the Xbone with a newer devkit?

            And it still ended up being worse on the Bone?

            Yeah.

          • Gekko36

            What the F@ck is the “Bone”. Do you mean Xbox One?

            You’re a bit of tool are you!

          • You are flat out wrong

            LMAO! no one calls it “the Xbox One” except for Xbots and shills, and you don’t want to be either.

          • Gekko36

            Let me get this right! NO ONE?, I just did and any news broadcaster does.

            You mean that you don’t like it because you chose it’s competitor the J@p box and you are right and everyone else is wrong… Spoke like a child.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Like I said: Xbots and shills. Nauseating little name, though it’s useful to see who the idiots are i.e. you.

            “J@p box.” That’s that latent Xbot racism again!

          • bardock5151

            Explain please how it looks worse? The screen tearing can be fixed with a patch after that what looks worse?

          • You are flat out wrong

            That screen tearing still remains slightly, and it doesn’t fix every other issue.

          • bardock5151

            Honestly from looking at the comp videos again aside from the tearing issue all I notice is a bit of texture pop a bit on scenery for x1 and some on character models for ps4. Dunno if its just me.

        • http://www.sony.com Based Sony

          Exactly.
          M$ clearly paid them off.

          They should just cancel any version that isn’t the most based.

      • mwalker

        So sad we have lost what’s important about gaming. Fun. Everyone wants to argue now. I remember putting quarters in the arcades standing next to complete starangers. Now that’s a time I miss. Gamers with brains.

        • mark_parch

          i totally agree. problem is most of the people on these message boards started playing while the console war had already started they know nothing else.

    • Porcu Peth

      the game looks shitty on all platforms

      • Michael Norris

        The game looks just fine,it’s fun as hell and i met some great people on the alpha.

        Shitty? FFS…people and their ridiculous sense of entitlement. Game looks great.

    • You are flat out wrong

      It’s a cross-gen game. I’m expecting a worse frame rate and more jaggies, among other things, in the Xbone version.

      • Gekko36

        But you didn’t buy an Xbox One… So how would you know?

        You wouldn’t, you’ll just come here and type with a Sony erection.

        • You are flat out wrong

          Sniper Elite 3 was supposed to be at parity with a new dev kit too. The result? Overwhelmingly poor performance on the Xbone. Xbots never learn.

          • Gekko36

            You didn’t buy one, you don’t like them. So how would you know.

            You just admitted in another post on this thread that you would never buy one… so again how could you know… you don’t

          • You are flat out wrong
          • Fake_of_Silva

            If you call anyone “Xbot” , everyone can call you “Sony Pony”. Just cut this crap out and enjoy the game on your preferred platform.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Oh no, someone might call me by that pathetic moniker.

            Considering all it does is make the user look stupid, I won’t lose too much sleep.

            Not sure how you could possibly believe the same to be anything less than true about someone who uses “xbot”

          • You are flat out wrong

            Thing, is, “Xbot” accurately describes you: machines with no emotion, only capable of following instructions.

            Plus, the really funny thing: the pony audience is on Xbox! Hahahahah!

          • You are flat out wrong’s mom
          • You are flat out wrong

            Is that what you stick up your bum, little Faisal?

          • Elitepwnsface

            Thank you. People just need to play their games and stfu.

          • XboxGamer33

            Sniper Elite did not get the 10% Dev kit… If you actually read the dates you would see that the Sniper Elite devs said this in January.. The 10% Dev kit came out in June, hence why Bungie and Insomniac are now saying it will take advantage of it. Ffs

            You are on every site making every PS4 gamer look bad… If you’re gonna claim high and mighty at least do the research

          • You are flat out wrong

            Nah, it got the February dev kit with better dev tools and a reduction of the Kinect GPU hold over. It was still a disaster.

            Get over it. :^)

          • XboxGamer33

            Better dev tools yes… But the only reduction it could gave possibly be was a 2% reduction because if you actually kept up with the times like a logical person you would know the major reduction was in June..

          • You are flat out wrong

            A 2% reduction didn’t seem to do much of anything. 8% will also account for not much of anything. But keep clinging to that final straw of hope, if it falls apart you always have DX12 to let you down next December. :^)

          • XboxGamer33

            You have no idea as you are a troll and not a developer. Bungie will use it to take Destiny to 1080p and Insomniac will use it to make Sunset Overdrive richer and much better.

            Also, when a new DX comes out there is always a major improvement. The Dx12 is mainly for PC as consoles already have low level access, but it has been noted to make the X1 work more efficiently by various devs. Now, where it has a bigger impact is that porting games will be super, duper easy from PC to X1 (as the X1 has a PC OS in Windows 8 and the same Dx12 toolkit as the PC). Look at the announcement of the api with Forza 5, easy port job to the PC in very little time. This will make developing on PC and X1 much more streamline, but what about the PS4 that isn’t Dx12? Theoretically… It will be holding back devs as they will need to work separately from the PC and X1.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Another cross-gen game at 1080p? What a surprise. Hopefully it doesn’t have horrific screen tearing like Sniper Elite 3 does.

            “and Insomniac will use it to make Sunset Overdrive richer and much better.”

            Hopefully they use it to fix the repetitive gameplay.

            Yep, easier porting will be the biggest (and likely only) improvement for the Bone. More of those Steam Greenlight games will be incoming and more classics like Soda Drinker Pro 2 will only be for the Xbone.

          • XboxGamer33

            Now I know you’re reaching for straws.. Repetitive gameplay? On a game we haven’t seen over 20 mins of? A game with 3 times the enemies on screen of any PS4 exclusive out to date.. You’re quite the fanboy.

            And okay, well when that PS4 console can keep the screen tear away from games like Murder Soul Suspect and Tomb Raider, then you can talk! Till then nahhh you can’t.

            And now you entirely bypass the whole statement and use stupid ass games.. Funny, how about Arkham Knight.. You know that game that was shown at Sony’s E3 on a PC? How about The Witcher 3? A game developed first on PC..

            Ehhhh, but what can you do. Speaking facts to fanboys is tiring. I’ll reply when you have a smart comment to say.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Not surprised they’ve only shown 20 minutes of it, wouldn’t want to see too much of the same thing.

            Difference being the Xbone versions are usually vastly more horrendous, and will continue to be so.

            Yeah, no shit games get developed on PC then ported over to the PS4 quite sufficiently. It’s always amusing to be lectured about fanboyism by “XboxGamer33″ (implying the Xbone has games!)

          • XboxGamer33

            “Difference being the Xbone versions are usually vastly more horrendous, and will continue to be so.”

            Dude, they both run at 1080p but the PS4s 60fps fluctuations cause screen tear. Funny that you paste vs articles that benefit you…. But ignore ones that don’t.

            “Not surprised they’ve only shown 20 minutes of it, wouldn’t want to see too much of the same thing”

            Much like Infamous.. The E3 2013 gameplay is exactly the same repetitive shit you get now. Same 4 missions in every district. A 82 metacritic rating proves that good graphics doesn’t help repetitive gameplay with little to no interesting story. However, from what we’ve seen of SSOD no one can say anything, but Insomniac…

            “Yeah, no shit games get developed on PC then ported over to the PS4 quite sufficiently. It’s always amusing to be lectured about fanboyism by “XboxGamer33″ (implying the Xbone has games!)”

            So it went from Dx12 will only help port stupid games.. To games are always developed first on PC then ported over to PS4. Implying that my original statement is right on the money and that the PS4 lack of Dx12 will make primary DX developers (Witcher 1-3 and almost every developer out there) slow down developing process to accommodate that…

            If I’m making enough sense please stop me.. However, don’t reply with more fanboyish shit because you’re getting pretty sad at this point.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Nope. Fluctuations causes jutter, which is more noticeable if it fluctuates a lot. Screen tear is something else, and it occurs on the Xbone a lot more often. Most recent example: Sniper Elite 3.

            “Y-your game is m-more repetitive than my game!!!” You seriously gonna go down that road, Xbitch? If it’s any consolation, I didn’t find Infamous repetitive at all.

            It might encourage greater porting of smaller games that smaller teams would have had difficulty with due to lack of resources, but you’re laughing if you expect the status quo to change on the back of MS’ promises. Funny that even now with primary DX developers like CDPR, they’re having an easier job getting the PS4 to spec than the Xbone with DX11.

            Sorry, XboxLoser, if you’re gonna talk sh*t I’m gonna call you out on it.

          • XboxGamer33

            Name calling? Is that what you resort to? Well I’ll keep proving you wrong.

            For one it’s a logical fallacy to compare a game that’s out to a game that isn’t out. If you wanna compare something compare both Sony and MS big exclusives for March. ISS got an 82 metacritic citing that visuals and gameplay are fun, but story is sub par at best. Titanfall got an 86 citing gameplay is fun, but not enough content. Don’t compare a game that isn’t out to a game that is out. It doesn’t bode well or contribute anything to your argument.

            Also it does cause screen tear..

            http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-murdered-soul-suspect-face-off

            “The DirectX 11 Xbox One and PC versions both feel pretty solid, while the faster PS4 title exhibits more noticeable gameplay and rendering bugs, making things feel a little rough around the edges – despite the obvious love and attention that has gone into crafting the atmospheric environments and interesting premise.”

            “So in terms of gameplay the Sony console takes the lead by brute-forcing its way into delivering a much higher frame-rate, but when it comes down to the cut-scenes we find the opposite is true with variable frame-rates and screen tear heavily distracting from the moody cinematic scenes and the spooky noir atmosphere.”

            “PlayStation 4 takes the performance lead, but the resultant screen-tear is especially off-putting during cut-scenes.”

            Finally it is funny that you take CDPR’s words through selective hearing. Obviously the PS4 is more powerful. I never said it wasn’t, you put those words in my mouth. Reaching 1080p will be much easier on it, while X1 still has the new SDK. However, my earlier statement is reiterated by CDPR… Which you choose to ignore.

            http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-the-witcher-3-tech-analysis

            “The fact that we can use DX11 on Xbox One and the PC makes some things easier,” Michał Krzemiński says. “We do have to put a little extra effort into developing on the PlayStation 4, but it’s nothing we can’t handle and that would make development problematic.”

            The fluid conversion to Microsoft’s platform in particular means top-end features make the cut, despite the Xbox One’s hardware deficit compared to PS4. “At least for PC and Xbox [One], we’re using DX11 terrain so everything’s really highly tessellated,”

            Get your head out of your ass and do basic research… I’m tired of proving you wrong..

          • You are flat out wrong

            I’m only treating Xbot scum how they deserve to be treated.

            Nice attempt to deflect from the Xbone’s current failures. Oh wow, 4 of a difference on a 100 point scale on four month old games. I bet that really helped you justify tying your emotional worth to a dying brand. To really accentuate your massive idiocy, Titanflop failed to save the Xbone, just as the price cut did.

            Oh right, Murdered, a mediocre B game that was badly ported. Funny how that, Thief and Strider are the only three games that perform better on the Xbone. You can have them, along with Ryse and Fighter Within.

            As for CDPR shilling for Microsoft: that figures, considering their marketing deal. After CDPR lied about both MS and Sony saying 900p was the “sweet spot” (neither did) I don’t put much weight on what they have to say.

          • Bob S

            Wrong…other way around pony. Gamingbolt tech eval yielded higher average frame rate on xbox one and better overall look and color saturation on xbox one. Both have screen tearing

          • You are flat out wrong

            lmao Laming Bolt. The professionals actually did it and the Xbone version was found wanting. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-sniper-elite-3-face-off Deal with it.

        • Not_true

          If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate, more screen tear, and/or less visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

          People dont need to buy an xbone to know how bad the xbone is its pretty well documented, try reading some articles on multiplat games sometime.

          • Daemon Andrew

            The XONE isn’t at all that bad it’s truly being made out to be worse than it actually is I own both PS4 and XONE and both look amazing and sitting 2.5m from my 60″ 4K Samsung LED TV it really doesn’t matter..I’m not at a pc with the screen 30-40cms from my face LOL

            It’s just cool to bag the XONE these days it’s why you’re seen as a hipster if you do..

          • worryingrash

            Which is weird considering PS4 is the mainstream choice.

          • rudero

            Is that the new angle? Blame it on the cool kids? Any reason you can not place the blame on the real reason?
            This is only happening because of Microsoft.
            On topic, looks great and I highly recommend the game.

          • IdiotTormentor

            “I’m not at a pc with the screen 30-40cms from my face LOL”
            How hard is it for a PC Gamer to plug a HDMI into their 60″ TV and play games with a controller?

            All it takes is for one to pickup a PS3 or PS4 controller like myself and plug a HDMI in, I do it all the time, I don’t understand why you feel the need to say that or mention PC when the discussion is about consoles.

          • Thats Mr. Smoove

            its well documented. wow. same can be said for all platforms in todays biased media.

          • Not_true

            Digital Foundry proves that PS4 multiplat games consistently run at higher res, framerate, and/or visual quality.

      • You are flat out wrong’s mom

        i’m expecting you to clean my feet and stop fanboying

      • MuscledRMH

        Another bullshit comment. De game runs exactly the same on Xbox One just like the PS4 version. Both are 1080p/30fps

        • You are flat out wrong

          Yeah, in the same way Sniper Elite 3 was supposed to be the same on the Xbone because it’s 1080p 30fps. Oh wait!

          http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-sniper-elite-3-face-off

          This is going to be a consistent theme for the rest of the generation.

        • Not_true

          If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will
          have lower framerate, more screen tear, and/or less visual effects, or
          the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed.

          PS4 version of destiny will have higher average framerate, possibly less tearing depending on v-sync settings, and better visual effects, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed.

            Isn’t it sad how the Xbots just make claims out of the blue?

      • Forgiven Zombie

        Bungie has said both systems will be 1080p, so you can have fun on whatever system you choose or both.

        The home of the FPS is PC. Destiny still doesn’t have a confirmed PC release, so I’m not sure what you’re referring to in your comment.

            ok, you just convinced me not to buy ps4. I was gonna buy it soon, but I’m sick of moron-wars and morons like you who are the smartest tools in the shed.

          • Not_true

            You’re talking about not wanting to own a PS4 because flat out wrong is a fanboy troll, yet ms fanboys are as bad or worse (see misterxmedia or others constantly lying and FUDing).

            Both consoles have good exclusive games, it’s only fanboys trying to trash one or the other without having anything good to say.

          • HerX

            Yup, exactly my thoughts. On the other hand I think I’m still gonna end up buying PS4, as these annoying trolls (from both sides) usually don’t have much time for gaming as trolling takes most of it :)

    Wonder if they had enough time with June SDK to make the beta 1080p also or if that will be by September launch…

    • Da GeeZ

      Yeah good question. Gonna be interesting to see.

  • GameDev345

    Should we assume a Bungie Dev is playing this as the Beta isn’t even out yet

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      most probably.

  • Reddz Foxx

    Hype train inbound last stop was watch dogs this stop is Destiny. 2014 is the year of overhyped games and underdelivered gameplay.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      We already saw the gameplay. It has nothing to do with underdelivery.

      • Reddz Foxx

        Yes we have all seen the gameplay and it got real old after a week. Unless they have an entirely new game from the alpha its going to underdeliver as there are plenty of walking simulator games out on the market and we don’t need another one.

  • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

    Pretty good for the non-definitive version of Destiny I must say.

    • ilovegoogleglass

      Nice stealth trolling.

    • Bobbbbby5

      Yeah, the PC version is sure to be the best.

      • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

        It’s console exclusive. Bungie is a console first developer.

      • You = No Degree Apartment Bum

        there is no PC version lmao. get used to that phrase

    • Da GeeZ

      If you mean ‘definitive’ because of the miniscule content the ps4 owners are getting early, your definition of definitive is pretty poor.

      1080p at 30fps on Xbox Won and ps4. Same same same same same… but… Xbox has the better server tech by a long shot. ps4 version is inferior.

      • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

        There’s more latency overall on XBL than PSN. And your blind if you think the two versions are even based off of 1080p 30 frames claim. There’s always more differences once you get the games. 360 and PS3 multiplats had differences for every single game whether it be draw distance or lighting.

        • Gekko36

          “There’s more latency overall on XBL than PSN”

          Please explain your comment Michael, I have never EVER experienced latency over 16ms on XBL. Can you tell me the reason you think this is the case and WHY the PSN infrastructure is better (specifically the method in which the psn achieves this compared to the method that XBL does.) I’m dying to hear a coherent answer to this one.. Drumroll….

          • Jecht_Sin

            Well, it also depends on how far one is located from the Sony/MS data centers. Still that could only apply to him and not generally speaking. As well as you must be quite close if you have only a 16ms latency. What does this link say for you? ;)

            http://azurespeedtest.azurewebsites.net

          • DLConspiracy//

            This is why I respect your opinion.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I’m getting 30 ms on average on ps4 and then on killer instinct is 150 ms. But the argument is negligible because the latency difference will be marginal when it’s going to be the same game. There’s more differences in frame dips that will be more noticeable. Almost every game I play feels pretty much “lag free”. I wasn’t the one that brought the latency thing but that argument is negligible.

          • HerX

            and how do you know that there will be frame drops? ffs they haven’t even started optimizing the game…

          • chrisredfield31

            Sniper Elite 3

          • DLConspiracy//

            Killer Instinct? What? I don’t quite understand what you mean Ping? That would depend on the sever locale. One thing I can tell you though is that COD ghosts is running on hybrid servers for PS4 so they have listen and dedicated servers for Ps. Whereas Xbox has fully dedicated servers. Which is better to me. As then I don’t have to worry about the other players connection disrupting the overall lag of the match. It doesn’t need to balance it all out based on the host.

            Now in the case of this game (destiny) Bungie/Activision may use their own hybrid method again? After all Ghosts opted for that and they have a lot of players. Unless Bungie is footing the bill for destiny. I know they have not fully explained their servers yet. They mentioned a central server of some sort.

        • You are flat out wrong’s mom

          ‘There’s more latency overall on XBL than PSN’ hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahaha what an idiot.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            That’s all you can say is try to flame. But I will get the last laugh when it turns out the X1 version has worst draw distance, more frame dips, and worst textures.

      • You are flat out wrong

        Yeah, that framerate really shits the bed on the Xbone version, same as with Sniper Elite 3. Remember that game? Parity? Oh wait, it was still much worse on the Bone.

      • Not_true

        If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate, more screen tear, and/or less visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

        • Rooster41

          There’s no article saying that so stop spewing lies, the Xbox One version will run at 1080p 60fps just like the PS4 version

          • Not_true

            Those are the hardware facts. PS4 version of destiny will have higher average framerate and better visual effects, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed. That’s the truth, not lies.

            Neither version is 1080p 60 fps. You’re wrong and don’t know what you’re talking about.

      • superkarma

        Better server tech? Destiny is using Bungie servers across all platforms. The almighty power of the cloud and those Azure servers won’t have any affect on this game. As far as servers are concerned, PS3/PS4/360/X1 will have the same experience.

      • Rooster41

        Absolutely

        • You are flat out wrong

          Both versions of Destiny will be running though Activision’s servers so it’s highly unlikely either version will have any advantage.

          This isn’t Gaming Bolt, friend.

          • chrisredfield31

            Yeah, these Xbox fanboys think they can come over to DS with their backwards logic and weak spins

    • DLConspiracy//

      If everyone doesn’t agree, it can be.

      Difinitive : “(of a conclusion or agreement) done or reached decisively and with authority.”

      Unless Bungie or Activision has said that then it seems to be your way of rubbing it in other peoples faces. Which is kind of childish don’t you think?

      • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

        If it’s the best version the it’s the definitive version. While they may not say it, going by trends the PS4 version is almost always the best. If they say it then that’s just marketing tactic.

        • DLConspiracy//

          Kind of an opinion don’t you think? You call it definitive because of your preferences. That doesnt make it definitive for everyone or it wouldnt be on xbox at all. Also, I could buy the game on my PS4 and I am getting it for my Xbox one based on my preferences.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            If the X1 was stronger I would primarily game on the X1. However this is not a matter opinion. It’s a fact that multiplats have been better on PS4.

            The only game that is better on the X1 is Strider which had something to do with a glitch on the PS4 version which could updated by now. I have not followed up on that.

            And you may call it just speculation but come september when the reviews come out the PS4 version run better. It’s just not as simple 1080p 30 frames on both versions. Just like how last generation you just knew the 360 had the better COD games. I didn’t have to wait to know which game version to get.

          • DLConspiracy//

            If they do make a PC version is that going to mean the PS4 version will be obsolete? If we need to get down to miniscule differences or some sort of investigative digital foundary to crack the case. I think its safe to say that most people won’t care in the least. My point is that people want so badly to have their version be the best, that they are willing to flame online and rub words like ‘definitive’ in peoples faces. If you like the game and enjoy it then you should just be happy people get to enjoy the game. It shouldn’t be about slightly better textures or DLC content. If you need that to enjoy the game, then I think you might not enjoy the game in the end. PC gamers don’t do that when one has a better GPU than the other.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            You just made my case. Yes people do rub things in other peoples faces. It’s fun. Just look at any other controversial article and you will see many comments that are about bragging.

            I think I will like the game because it has many of the genres I like mixed into one game. However I’m a pessimist and am critical about games.

            If they made a PC version then the PS4 version is still the best console version.

            And the bit about the DLC.. That should matter more for people like you who “care” more about the core game. So why would you get the X1 version when you may really like the game and get the exclusive DLC that you wouldn’t get?

          • DLConspiracy//

            The difference is that there are tons of multiplayer out already and the best version is PC. Yet, that doesn’t stop oodles of people playing that same multiplat on any console regardless of the slightly ‘superior’ version. If we wanted to go that route which PC version would be better. Watchdogs on a gtx 780 GPU or gtx 780ti GPU card?
            The differences are there but its nominal.

            I am not here to tell you your preferences are wrong I just think you are trying to stir up some flame just to feel good about your purchase. Then turn around and point the finger at the people that they bait into getting a reaction out of. I hope one day people can just go online to talk about games instead of bits.

            I don’t care about the DLC for Destiny for a couple reasons. 1. I prefer the quality of Xbox chat codecs/servers I own both ps4 and xb1 and. 2. Whats the point of all the DLC if you can’t share it with the friends you play MP games with the most. In my case its always been XBL.

          • Jecht_Sin

            “The difference is that there are tons of multiplayer out already and the best version is PC.”

            Not on 400 dollars or euro PCs. :p

          • DLConspiracy//

            In comparison to his preferences though. Not mine. I have a whole other set of preferences for that stuff. Haha

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I many others choose to play the game earlier than not even mentioned PC version. Just as I did with GTA5 with no regrets and it was a great game. And there’s even a reported remaster version of gta5 which I don’t plan on playing.

            Down the rabbit hole we go.. PS4 is the cheapest system to get into the current gen while slightly overall outperforming the X1. So therefore the PS4 is still a good value compared to PC. So that’s why I would still argue that getting Destiny for PS4 is lesser entry barrier and the fact Destiny isn’t even announced for PC. Bungie was quiet, they said if they made a PC version it would be another project that would interfere with the other 4 console versions. So I would at the very least lean towards that their won’t be a Destiny PC version for one year. And at that point I would be playing better looking games than Destiny. Such as I played Infamous Second Son before the the PC master race are able to play GTA5. I was able to move and play bigger and better games.

            And lastly that’s your preference. I know I asked you earlier about the DLC, but PS4 install base is larger so the friend argument is that there’s more friends that own a PS4 only. PS4 has the mindshare. And the gap is getting bigger once the casual sports games come out. People will get the “superior” console and no matter how true that is and the general consensus among casual gamers is the PS4 is the stronger system at a cheaper price.

          • DLConspiracy//

            While that’s all well and good. My point is that taking away from someone’s elses enjoyment because something is slightly better seems to be missing the mark on gaming all together. I don’t care if one is stronger than the other. There are numerous other variables that come into play for each person preferences. Especially if you happen to own each console. You really start to see the differences first hand. While our little online community may know that PS4 is stronger doesn’t mean everyone who makes up gaming does. Most casuals make up the majority of gaming as is. They mostly have no clue. They have two categories popular or not. Not a bad thing, they just don’t get off on friendly debates like us nerds like to engage in. I just think its dismissive to think there aren’t good/bad in all platforms. This need to have only one platform is bad for gaming. The fanboy hatred and gloating and emotional backfire is also bad for it.

            In response to you last post. I just think you are better than to rub crap like that in peoples faces, is all. I like debate. I don’t always have to be right but I know that there doesn’t have to be a ‘winner’ or definitive edition.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Well you would know what stance you had last generation. Who knows, would you be saying the same stuff when the 360 had multiplats better than the PS3?

            I think your downplaying about how viral these things are. “The 1080p PS4 can do over the X1″. That’s pretty viral.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Well that’s true. I wasn’t nearly involved online last gen as I was this gen. Perhaps I come from a different space. I wanted to take a more active role in it because I love it this time around and what I really like aboutngaming seems to be taking a back seat to snobbery. Although with the way I feel I would be saying the same thing to a 360 user right now if it was then. Still don’t see the good in perpetuating it. We could only be so lucky to have both consoles do well or better yet all four platforms. I stream all three that I have now. Perhaps your right about the vitality but its a negative campaign when its mutually beneficial for everyone.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            The console war has expanded to the casual crowd now. It use to mainly core gamers but now the casual crowd is getting into it. I have fun in these debates. And I never flame like other users do.

            I owned all three last gen with no PC. This time around I will get everything except WiiU. My favorite controller overall is the X1 controller believe it or not.

      Than the Alpha footage? Yeah, a beta generally looks better than an Alpha.

    • tehbroham

      i actually thought the PS4 version looked a little crisper, could be the poor video quality of the leaked X1 footage though, wait until the footage comes out on an unbias site, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the PS4 version has had a little more love given to it, still think this game was intended to be a sony platform exclusive and bungie thought about their wallet at the last minute, the Xbox versions will definitely be ports

  • Vious

    didn’t get to see the videos. but judging by the comments it seems for whatever reasons some people are surprised it looks better than they thought it would.

      • Vious

        awesome. thanks

    Ah so it seems we’ll be starting out from level 1 then? Wonder why they had us start at, what was it, level 3 for the Alpha?

  • Raian K.

    Lucky bastard I am dying waiting for this Beta.

  • Rob

    same as ps4 except perhaps minor things and some little resolution difference. still im sort of disappointed that this game comes out on last gen platforms as well. if it was fully “next gen” title, it would have more beautiful visuals.

    • HerX

      wow, and you saw that how? with the video of this quality I could be easily convinced it would look better on my phone than it does on both new consoles.

    • Rooster41

      The resolution will be exactly the same as the PS4 version and so will the frame rate only difference is
      the exclusive content for the PlayStation consoles

  • Cassive

    Awesome! But I don’t know if I still want this game though, 1. the “teen” rating and 2. it feels a bit like Halo, and TBH, I’ve never been a massive fan of Halo, I liked the 1st 2 but after them, no thanks. GEARS OF WAR on the other hand, I’d have to borrow a X1 off one of my mates. Off topic, but oh well

  • Mark

    Lol. Yet again, another X1 article with a bunch of unneccessary arguing. Ok ok, whoever starts it now, gets all the credit lol. Hmmmm

  • MuscledRMH

    Destiny on the Xbox One is running at 1080p/30fps just like the PS4 version and looks exactly like the PS4 version

    • Rooster41

      I’ve played the beta for the PS4 and looking at this footage I can see that the Xbox One version looks exactly like the PS4 version, even the blur effect when you aim down the site looks the same

  • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

    So this is how the second rate version looks, cant wait to see the superior version looks on PS4.

    • Rooster41

      I’ve played the beta for the PS4 and I can see from this footage that the Xbox One version looks exactly like the PS4 version, even the blur effect when you aim down the site looks the same

  • Rooster41

    PlayStation fanboys need to stop down grading the Xbox One version the Xbox One version looks exactly like the PS4 version it has the same resolution and frame rate so get over it and injoy your beta life goes on

    • superkarma

      Just so you know, having the same resolution and fps doesn’t mean they’ll look the exact same. There’s more that goes into that than just simply resolution and fps.

      I’m not saying there will be mind-blowing differences, but there will be differences nonetheless. The sooner you come to that realization, the less surprised you’ll be when you read the DigitalFoundry article in September.

      • DLConspiracy//

        I wonder if they did a survey on the gameplay of both platforms excluding any on screen buttons or tell signs if anyone would even care or realize. My guess would be no.

          Why would they waste their precious resources and time on that? I’ve participated in a lot of betas and never have I ever seen a survey that asked me which was which.

          • Vious

            his point went over your head.

          • DLConspiracy//

            You’re right. Most people won’t know that’s why digital foundary works on checking to see what frames and res a game is. Because its so apparent.

          • Vious

            is my sarcasm detector working properly? lol

          • Sucka Free

            if you need to ask, then no it’s not

          • DLConspiracy//

            I just never understand why Digital Foundary has become so important. If we need an investigative team to tell the difference then people should not be able to tell the difference.

          • Vious

            Well you have both consoles so if there’s any perceived differences in visuals or online functionality I’m sure you’ll notice. Other than that people will look to digital foundry to tell them that there’s a +2fps average difference.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Well its certainly proof but the only difference I usually notice is 30fps to 60fps. The rest is just not picky stuff.

          • Guy Brohski

            Nobody would be able to tell which version is which, then PS4 fanboys would have nothing to brag about lol.

          • superkarma

            Your trolling tonight is very sloppy. You really should consider stepping it up.

    • Sucka Free

      Yeah, maybe when all the Xbox fanboys stop making ridiculous claims and hating on the PS4, then we can all join hands and sing “Kumbaya”

    • Not_true

      PS4 version of Destiny will have higher average framerate, possibly less tearing depending on v-sync settings, and better visual effects, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed. They will not “look exactly the same”, you are wrong.

      That’s reality, sorry if you don’t like it.

  • Jamal

    Good news. My XB1 can’t wait

    • jayflow

      Did you get a chance to play the Alpha on PS4?

      • Jamal

        No. But I’ll play the beta on ps4

  • ALostPony

    Xbox the true place for Multiplayer gaming 3 generations in a roll.

    • You are flat out wrong

      LMAO paying for P2P online for ten years and all you got back for it was friends list!

      • Guy Brohski

        And that entire ten year span XBL’s quality dominated PSN. Halo 2 simply wasn’t possible on PS2, and that game is what set off online console gaming into the mainstream. You have to pay for premium quality, something Sony finally caught on to with the PS4.

        • Not_true

          PSN is hugely improved since PS4 launched, it’s able to handle much more traffic to go with the huge increase in sales and customers switching from Xbox 360 to PS4.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I think you give it too much credit often times I can’t even watch game trailers on their server through the network. They definitely are gonna catch up but it takes time. While 360 was charging they were building their servers for years.

        • You are flat out wrong

          Hardly. By the end most people regarded both to be about equal. Halo 2 isn’t possible on the Xbox now either considering the servers are long dead!

          • Guy Brohski

            Halo 2 used normal mapping for character models, and vehicles. Also, environments made heavy use of bump mapping (as did Halo CE’s), this simply wasn’t possible on PS2, not at that level of visual fidelity.

      • DLConspiracy//

        Why doesn’t PS4 have full dedicated servers now then? What’s with all the hybrid listen/dedicated servers for games?

        • Jecht_Sin

          The what? Please elaborate.

        • chrisredfield31

          PS4/PS3 games have always had dedicated servers, it just depends on which game we’re talking about.

          • DLConspiracy//

            PS4 is mostly using hybrid servers. Which is a mixture of dedicated and listen servers. That does not mean full dedicated servers just because they have SOME dedicated servers. Hybrid is hybrid. Fully Dedicated servers are fully dedicated servers.

          • chrisredfield31

            Like I said, it depends on the game. Destiny uses full dedicated servers from Activisions end. Some other games like MAG uses full dedicated servers (it has to, due to the nature of the game).

            The hybrid servers you’re talking about, are games like fighting games, sports games etc, where the only thing a server needs to do is the matchmaking and then the software takes over from there, we call that P2P.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Oh in know. I look into this stuff for my online games. P2p uses the listens servers that are spread out through out the world to match make. Then often times a game is hosted on your console if a dedicated server is not within reach. Or else you get a really crappy ping if a dedicated server is not within reach. P2p depends on the host connection to play a game..

            I wonder about Destiny though. You would think COD Ghosts would be using full dedicated on PS4 since its Activision but its not. With bow much CoD sells and they still don’t have enough to cover full dedicated on their own for that game. So it makes me wonder. Although they are definitely putting all their chips in for this one. The only reason COD has full dedicated on Xbox is because Xbob foots them the servers for it. So I am wondering still what they are going to do.

        • You are flat out wrong

          So, like pretty much every other publisher? I’ll deal with that.

    • ElmerFudd

      In a roll?? What kind of roll, hot dog roll? I think you mean in a row..

  • kdog254

    Doesn’t look bad at all on XB1. Game is shaping up quite nicely. That said, I’d like to see what it looks like on PS3/360.

  • MTM2

    As ever, wait for Digital Foundry’s analysis.

  • Trevor

    I got a beta code for the PS4 and XB1. Which plays better, and has the better netcode, is the one I will be purchasing. Who knows, if I really enjoy the game I might be buying them both anyway.

    • DLConspiracy//

      They will both play fine. If you don’t care about the extra content then I would suggest going with the group of friends you are more likely to play with.

  • tehbroham

    i was expecting the X1 version to look shit considering bungie and sony are butt buddies at the moment, not bad

  • PachterStation

    Don’t you think it looks like just another shooter? Yet another game that won’t live up to the hype.

    • superkarma

      Perhaps because it is another shooter? What is it supposed to look like exactly? Considering the hype for the game has grown, not decreased, after the alpha, I somehow doubt it won’t live up to its hype when released.

    • Vious

      don’t know if it will live up to the hype or not

  • Rooster41

    Unlike most of you here i’ve actually played the Destiny alpha on the PS4 and judging by the video I see here the Xbox One version looks exactly like the PS4 version, the June dev kits have worked wonders for the Xbox One, i’ll play the July 23 beta on the Xbox One and compare both versions side by side

    • superkarma

      Don’t waste your time. You’ve already proven down below how very little you know on the subject. I’ll read the real comparison from Digital Foundry.

    • Not_true

      PS4 version of Destiny will have higher average framerate, possibly less tearing depending on v-sync settings, and better visual effects, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed. They will not “look exactly the same”, you are wrong. That’s reality, sorry if you don’t like it.

      Digital Foundry will prove you wrong yet again.

      • Vious

        only the future will tell.
        I wonder how you people would feel to find out that only an additional 10% of the xbox power is enough to close the “performance gap” of “50% more powahh”, while also still being able to do more than one thing on screen.
        - a +2 or +3 average fps isn’t enough to make a difference. they both will have so so fps.
        - what’s also funny to me is your little backup statement that if all else fails then the ps4′s “stronger hardware isn’t being pushed”, yep, that should cover all bases, correct?

        • Not_true

          That would be defying the laws of physics, so it won’t happen. Forced parity is a potential thing, yes.

          The fact is PS4′s hardware is more powerful for gaming graphics, there’s no rewriting the laws of physics to suit fanboys.

          • Vious

            I see you didn’t pay attention in physics class.

          • Not_true

            I see you’re still in denial that PS4′s hardware is more powerful for gaming graphics performance and it will show in some way if devs are pushing the hardware.

            That’s reality, sorry if you don’t like it.

          • Vious

            you can say whatever you want to say. but the ps4 is not as powerful as you think, and the xbox is not as weak as you think.
            - with destiny if the hardware isn’t being pushed then that means it should hold a constant framerate correct?

          • Not_true

            PS4 should have less framedrops from 30 and better quality effects (AA, shadows, AO, etc.) like we’ve seen in many multiplats so far.

          • Vious

            that is not answering the question.
            let me ask a different way then: if the game destiny isn’t pushing the ps4 hardware under the gauze of parity then the game should hold a constant fps since the hardware isn’t being pushed, correct?
            -
            your parity argument is out the window. and i’d hardly call +2fps more powerful since the xbox can do multiple things on screen while the game is playing.
            -
            the funny thing is games that the xbox and ps4 has in common that’s running at the same fps and resolution has better effects and better texture steaming on the xbox than on the ps4.

          • Not_true

            If there’s forced parity then there would be no perceivable difference. Much like indie games that run exactly the same on both PS4 and XB1 because the game doesn’t demand much of the hardware in the first place.

            Look at Sniper Elite 3 for example. Both labelled “1080p 60 fps” but the PS4 version has a 10+ FPS average lead, no screen tearing, better AF, and better AO. And Sniper Elite 3 apparently uses the “new SDK”.

            No, the PS4 version has better visual effects. You’re completely wrong. Texture streaming issues happen on both consoles.

            Texture data is identical between console versions. Sometimes texture streaming issues crop up in one or the other version, or even on PC. That’s generally dependent on hard drive speed. If you run a game off an SSD texture streaming issues are much less.

            Texture streaming issues can also happen if you start a game before it’s fully installed to the hard drive, or if you load from a save file and some textures haven’t been loaded from the drive into RAM yet.

            Texture streaming is a complex issue with multiple possible causes including drive speed, whether the footage is from a recently loaded save file where the textures haven’t been streamed into RAM yet, or whether the game hasn’t been fully installed to the HD yet.

            You’re lining up for a big heaping serving of crow when Digital Foundry looks at the Xbox version of Destiny.

          • Guy Brohski

            How would Sniper Elite use the June SDK when it went gold before the devs got the new SDK? And it doesn’t have better visual effects on PS4, it looks exactly the same, minus a slight frame rate difference…lol

          • Not_true

            PS4 version of Sniper Elite 3 has higher avg framerate, v-sync, better AF, better shadow quality, and better AO. XB1 version can toggle v-sync on, but it locks the framerate at 30 while PS4 version has v-sync on even while unlocked.

          • Guy Brohski

            None of this takes into consideration that Sniper 3 was completed before the June SDK update… Keep hatin’.

      • Guy Brohski

        We will see, MS hater. Troll on.

        • Not_true

          Stating facts and reality, like the fact that PS4′s hardware is more powerful, is not hating.

          Anyone with technical knowledge knew PS4′s game graphics performance would be better for the entire generation as soon as the specs were official. That was well over a year ago. Apparently it’s taking some people a LONG time to come to terms with reality.

          It’s going to be a very long gen of delusion, denial, and spinning for you.

      • Guy Brohski

        Unless you are viewing both versions side by side, then you will not be able to tell which is which. They’re both the same game, with slight differences not noticeable to most people. Besides, last gen when COD was running at 600p on PS3, you Sony fanboys said you couldn’t tell the difference. My how far your eyesight has come in the last couple years. Must be eating a diet consisting of nothing but carrots…

    • You are flat out wrong

      The June devkits will save the Xbone the same way the February devkits did.

      • Vious

        you are flat out wrong buddy

        • You are flat out wrong

          You’re right, the devkits aren’t saving it. It’s permaf*cked.

          • Vious

            once again, you are flat out wrong.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Keep clinging to those last remaining straws, Vious. It’s always amusing to see.

          • Guy Brohski

            But he’s right, you are wrong on this. Bungie already confirmed that the June devkit update has allowed them to reach 1080p. So why do you continue acting like an ass about it?

          • You are flat out wrong

            More than likely it was already 1080p because it’s a cross-gen game and they were throwing Xbots a figleaf to appease them because “muh betrayal!!!”

            Sniper Elite 3 was 1080p on a newer SDK as well. Guess what? Bone version is the worst. This will continue to happen.

          • Guy Brohski

            Eh, the Xbox One is roughly 3/5 as good as PS4, so this means that games will run a little better on PS4. I’m pretty sure most people already understand this fact. Didn’t stop people from buying a PS3 last gen, when Xbox360 had the superior GPU and more RAM plus the better multiplats. Everyone just has their preference of console whether based on the controller, exclusives etc.. Let it go.

  • Vious

    at one point this game had my interest.
