Destiny set for Xbox 720, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2014

If you've heard anything about the upcoming "game changer" title set to be produced by Bungie over the next 10 years in installments with Activision, you know that it certainly wouldn't make sense for the whole series to be appearing on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
