Five ways Destiny flat out rips off Halo
Unless your home is an impressive network of underground caves without access to the web (which would make reading this article difficult), you’ve probably heard of Bungie’s next game. After playing the beta, I can safely say that Destiny has all the makings of a truly great title worthy of the praise it has received so far. That having been said, you don’t have to look very deep in order to see Bungie’s previous work in this new adventure.

Despite a number of recent updates, this will be the first time that Sony has added new functionality to the console since its firmware revision back in April. That was the update that brought ShareFactory to the console, among other bits and pieces.
The news comes just days after Microsoft announced 3D Blu-Ray support for Xbox One. Slated to arrive in the console’s August update, those in the current dashboard preview programme already have access to the feature.

The Wii U, at more than 18 months old, has also been largely unaffected, though YouTube channel MrBean35000vr claims to have streamed and now uploaded footage of it utilising a browser-based exploit to modify and change code in Mario Kart 8, and to also tweak fonts in the main Wii U operating system.
Beginning with claims that they’re fully in control of a Wii U, the Mario Kart 8 demonstrations involve mixing up music files to play quickly from the beginning and fall to silence; we’re then shown track names getting changed. After that the fonts on the Wii U system menu and the WaraWara Plaza are changed.
