Does Activision's standard webcode hint Destiny is also on WiiU/Vita/PC/720/PS4? (No)

Couldn't find a thread about it. Lock if old.

Destiny may also come on WiiU, PS4/ Xbox 720

On the preorder page of the game, the source code contains mention of WiiU platform, along PC, Xbox720 and PS4.

pc: "platform-pc",
ps3: "platform-ps3",
ps4: "platform-ps4",
xbox: "platform-xbox",
xbox720: "platform-xbox720",
wiiu: "platform-wiiu",
psvista: "platform-psvita"

What do you think? Is it possible? Likely? Daydreaming?

Well it's inline with 360 and PS3 being there I guess. Oh and debunked, apparently. Man, If a dude in underwear hasn't told me about I don't know anything!

Oh man, Duckroll has explained this int he Destiny thread.

Sorry, I didn't see any thread on it, so I thought it was news. Do you have a link to his explaination please?

What was the explanation? Destiny is their official site, not some random site, I would like to know the "reason".

You can find the same code on the Black Ops 2 site for example and we all know that's not coming to PS4 and 720.

Activision reuses that same code for all its game specific websites. Go look at the source code for the websites of any other recent Activision games.

So Activision doesn't make 3DS games? Else it wouldn't make sense why 3DS isn't mentioned but Vita and WiiU are, if it's their "standard" webcode.

that proves nothing at all OP

but with Destiny so far away from release people saying flat "No" are not really on solid ground here since we are talking about a publisher who loves to port to everything

Debunked already this is standard meta-data on Activision's gaming pages. Think of it as "dictionary data" for the sites.

If anything was a hint, it was the "my body is ready" message. Why put it in the video?

If ever there was a clear sign that the WiiU is in dire, dire straights it's the increasingly ludicrous lengths that WiiU/Nintendo fans are going to to clutch at straws.

If it was being released on the WiiU wouldn't Nintendo make it a priority to have it announced alongside the PS360 unveiling? And if not what are they waiting for?!

Some of these WiiU fans but must at least be slightly aware of how desperate this all seems.

So seriously, if it's "standard" webcode, why is 3DS not in the list?

Yeah... that's why Watch_Dogs was revealed for WiiU at E3 when it was said to be coming to PS360! Oh, wait.

Watch_Dogs is not confirmed for WiiU. It is just based on a GameStop listing and some material saying "coming for all home consoles" (which technically means the Wii as well), as far as i know. That said, seeing that it is a game from Ubisoft (which usually are good with supporting multiply of platforms), it wouldnt surprise me if there was a WiiU version of Watch_Dogs.

It's sad that they have to be that way in the first place.... 360/PS3 players sure aren't worried about whether or not they're getting games.

Exactly. The system isn't six months old and already WiiU owners are playing the 'will they or won't they?' game with third party releases.

I'm really not sure what you mean by this.

Except for two industry insiders confirming it.

I'm really not sure what you mean by this.

That Nintendo has been keeping games under wraps the entire year. Even when they have been announced on other platforms.

You cannot post such a thing without links and expect to be taken seriously.

I see. This is the exact same game that PS3 owners were playing with that systems early releases.

"There are tons of unreleased games.., YOU'LL SEE!!!!!!"

But as I said before with the WiiU in such dire straights what exactly are Nintendo waiting for? They need to be announcing these so called 'secret games' now.

Especially when they are just ports of what are already multi format third party games such as Destiny and Watch Dogs.

No links needed buddy, they posted it on neogaf, lol.

John Harker & Ideaman in the Watch_Dogs leaked poster thread.

Just a heads up man but that's simply not going to cut it. And the 'lol' is especially grating.

And frankly I have no idea who those two are. Are they indeed insiders or are they 'insiders'?

Who?



I see. Many signs points to that it is coming :) I just wanted to mention that it isnt officially confirmed yet.

yeah I understand, Ubisoft might be concentrating on the next AssCreed reveal or this thing will be on PS4 tomorrow who knows

it has a better chance on Wii U than Destiny at this point lol

edit: to be clear amazon is listing this as Nintendo Wii :p not Nintendo Wii U
