Bungie.net integrates PSN accounts into new website

Revamped Bungie siteBungie.net integrates PSN accounts into new website photo



In the minds of most gamers, Bungie is still synonymous with Microsoft and the Xbox. But the studio appears to be broadening its audience with the recent update to its website.

Bungie.net now gives players the option to log in through the use of a Facebook, Google, or even PlayStation Network account. The new site is still in beta, but the current services available to players are the forums with revised tag searching and private group threads.

More and more features will come down the line in the coming months, to help prepare for the release of Bungie's next game, Destiny. I love the kind of stat tracking that Halo Waypoint, Battlelog, or Call of Duty Elite offer to players, so hopefully Bungie can implement a similar system into this next title. Still, logging onto Bungie.net with a PlayStation Network account just seems...odd to me.

Activision: Destiny to be 'next billion dollar franchise'

During their Q4 2013 financial results, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick proclaimed that Bungie's Destiny will be the "next billion dollar franchise" for the company. He expects it to be "the best-selling videogame in history," in fact. That's a pretty tall order, Activision. Destiny is going to be great, but best-selling videogame in history? Good luck with that!more

Enjoy these Destiny screens with your morning coffee

While the initial reveal left a bad taste in my mouth, I'd be insane to say I wasn't looking forward at all to Destiny. It's easily one of my most anticipated games of 2014 in fact, I just hope Bungie can deliver on their vision. In the mean time, enjoy some new screens from Destiny. It's probably stupid that I'm overly excited on discovering new cloaks to wear in the game, huh?more

Destiny may require you to group up for end-game missions

Unlike Titanfall, it is possible to play Destiny all by your lonesome, and ignore all the grouping and social features -- to a point. Bungie's Jason Jones explained exactly what they have planned to Game Informer, and it...more

Destiny's box art could have been so much more

I shouldn't let box art bother me like this, but I'm unable to stop wondering what other covers were rejected in favor of this one for Destiny. It's pretty standard, which is what makes it disappointing -- there's so much pot...more

Destiny looks so goddamn gorgeous

I still have a hard time believing Destiny is actually possible given the scope of the entire project. You're going to have multiple worlds to explore, so many guns to play with, tons of enemies to kill, and it all looks gor...more
