im still on the fence about it tbh not to keen on rpg's 

But it's so much more than an rpg! Do what I did. Put $10 down on a preorder, get your code and get a refund if you don't like the beta.

 

 

Yea thats what I did... I'm still 50/50 on it.. Beta is a great way to test it out before you plonk the remaining cash on it.

 

That sounds like a clever idea really to give it a crack. I'm also on the fence so may do this.

Looks interesting, but I could never get into borderlands, and this seems like the same type of game play, although the main thing I didn't like about borderlands was the grinding

Few packs announced today, in the Digital Guardian Edition:

Anyone understand what the difference with

 

"Reservation for two upcoming Destiny Expansions, “The Dark Below” and “House of Wolves,” featuring:"

 


&& 
 

"Includes the Destiny Expansion Pass"

 

 

 

To me they're the same thing...

Bloody typical that the beta weekend for us is on the same weekend that I'm going down to Wellington to watch the phoenix and sydney get beaten by West Ham and Newcastle. Grrrrr.

 

I'm also pissed that we get half as long on it than PS4. Why are you doing this to us Bungie?!

 

Launches 5am, 24th of July our time.

yeah a little pissed about timing they've allocated too, they're doing nothing to make me want to follow through with that pre-order. If they're going to play favourites then there's the possibility they will do the same with expansion pack release dates in which case I say F'em they can P off and i'll spend my money on the huge number of other great games coming out. This kind of exclusivity on cross platform titles really irritates me.

They're trying too hard to get Sony fans to like them. So much so that they're pissing off fans they already have.

Hmmm just realised this is also releasing on the old consoles too. Not a  bad thing but as we know it does tend to dumb things down a bit...

Yea, hopefully that's not the case for this one. Bungie have said that it will be 1080p so hopefully that is an indication that it won't be too dumbed down.

Yes make it at least 7 days, 14 is better, us people that work Don't / cant find time between working to sit down for a good couple of hours at least to play it. At least if its 7 days or more theres a bigger chance it falls on a day off or 2.

The latest Podcast Unlocked episode from the IGN guys, first topic up is Destiny, discussing the exclusivity on PS4 Vs the short end of the stick XB1 are getting. Most interesting point that was discussed that I wasn't aware of is that the PS4 season pass gets exclusive content, yet XB1 SP is set to cost the same. Effectively paying the same and not getting the same value...

If I'm correct, if you have a beta code, you will be able to download the Beta to up to three consoles (of the same type), so if you have a friend considering this title, you may be able to pass them a "marketplace code" so they can play too and they don't need their own "Beta" code.

 

I'll be playing on XB1 and might have one or two spare code available for the beta.

Probably not worth trying to take the Monday off, I think its all over by then.

7pm Monday they've said.

Awesome about possibly getting codes for mates! That would be so good!

Edit: Just read an article that confirms the extra codes and that we get them as soon as the beta starts.
