Why doesn’t Destiny support gyro aim? (Destiny)

Maybe using the word build is confusing.

It is my understanding that using a mouse versus using a controller literally changes the way the game functions. Recoil and auto aim values are adjusted.

It’s not as simple as just enabling gyro controls on the PS4. Bungie cares immensely about how their games feel to play (as they should, as it’s one of the major selling points of their shooters). How does it feel to compensate for recoil with gyro aim versus using sticks? How much auto aim is appropriate? They have to test every gun in the game for another control scheme and make adjustments (and every gun ever added going forward). They can’t just turn on gyro and call it done. Well, they could maybe, but Bungie would care more about their game than to just do that, I think.

Now how does the game work when your playing with folks that all use different control schemes? I mostly think it shouldn’t matter. Good SBMM makes that a non-issue, but it’s still something they have to consider.
