Destiny Will Sell More PS4s Than Any Other Game This Fall
Let's face it: There aren't really any PlayStation 4 exclusives slated for the holiday season that will cause hardware sales to spike.
Driveclub will undoubtedly move a few PS4s, as will LittleBigPlanet 3, but without a heavy hitter like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Bloodborne, or The Order: 1886, I think it falls to a certain third-party title to push PS4 sales.
In my mind, that title is definitely Destiny. Bungie's alliance with Sony has resulted in exclusive content, early looks at the game, and of course, that Destiny PS4 bundle package that is bound to appeal to a great many. When you're talking about a massive game that should, by all rights, be a superior experience on a certain platform, that platform should benefit greatly when the game launches.
I'm aware that Call of Duty always pushes console sales as well, but I remain steadfast in my belief that the majority of hardcore CoD followers are Xbox fanatics. At launch, the majority of the new CoD titles sold are the Xbox version, and I don't see that trend changing. Driveclub has loads of potential but it's a new IP, and it's not half as hot as Destiny right now. I think there's a very good reason why Bungie's title opened up Sony's E3 press conference...
