Destiny website source code shows Xbox 720 and PS4 pre-order listings

Bungie revealed the first details of its first post-Halo game on Sunday. Destiny, to be published by Activision, is a sci-fi shooter but with some persistent world elements. Officially, Bungie and Activiision have said the game is coming to the Xbox 360 and the PS3, along with unnamed "future consoles."

Bungie is already taking pre-orders for Destiny via the game's official website and the site only shows listing for Xbox 360 and PS3 pre-orders. However, some people have gone through the source code of the website and found pre-order headers for several other platforms, including the "Xbox 720" and the "PS4". The source code was found by a Reddit user and we have confirmed the code is inside the Destiny website.

So does that mean that Microsoft's next Xbox console will be called the "Xbox 720" or is this merely a placeholder put in by Bungie's webmaster to prepare for taking pre-orders for Microsoft's next console? It's most likely the latter but the Xbox 720 name has been used by leaked documents from game developers in the past, so anything is possible.

The headers also show a Wii U listing, a PC listing and even a PS Vita port. Again, all of this code could simply be placeholders and may not actually be used.

Thanks to Jan for the tip!
