Are You Waiting For Destiny To Buy A PS4?
It's hard to say if we have any system-selling exclusives slated for a 2014 holiday release.
This year, it looks like third-party multiplatform games are going to be the biggest reasons to pick up one of the next-gen consoles, if you haven't already.
The PlayStation 4 will get games like Driveclub and LittleBigPlanet 3 but that's about it. In looking at Destiny, we're arguably talking about the game that will outsell every other this year - yes, including Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare; don't be surprised if this happens - and as such, hardware sales should get a big boost. Now, it has been well-documented that the PS4 version of Destiny is the one to get; it will have exclusive content and of course, there's that very pretty Destiny system bundle.
Gamers who do their homework know all about this, and they have their reasons for waiting to buy a next-gen machine. Not only is Destiny one of the first true "next-gen" titles - in the eyes of many - but it also kicks off the fall rush. Core gamers are going to want the PS4 for the holiday season, and Destiny is a fantastic excuse to hop aboard the next-gen bandwagon. Therefore, considering all this, it seems perfectly feasible that a lot of consumers are waiting on Bungie's blockbuster before taking the PS4 plunge.
