Celebrate the Destiny Beta on Xbox this Wednesday

Are you ready for the Destiny Beta on Xbox? This coming Wednesday, we invite you to join us to help celebrate the launch of the beta everyone will be playing this week. Since we’ll be in San Diego for Comic-con, we’re inviting locals to join us at the San Diego Microsoft Store at Fashion Valley Mall.

Destiny Beta

We’ll be broadcasting the Destiny beta on Xbox One over Twitch from the store, before raffling off some great prizes to those in attendance. Bonus: the first 100 attendees will receive a code for the Destiny beta for Xbox, redeemable on Bungie.net.

Here’s everything you need to know:

When: Wednesday, July 23rd at 5:00 PM

Where: Fashion Valley Microsoft retail store in San Diego

Who: everyone is welcome

Once the broadcast is concluded, we’ll be sticking around with our friends at Razer for their event, which continues at the Microsoft Store until 11pm. They’ve got a lot planned, so be sure to find all the details here.

If you’re planning on attending, please let us know by RSVPing on this event’s page on Facebook. This event is free, and you don’t need Comic-con passes to attend. See you there!

If you miss us on Wednesday, make sure to swing by the Microsoft Store outside of the Xbox Lounge at the Manchester Hyatt.  They’ll be running Comic-con-only Xbox offers on-site, including console and pre-order game offers.

    Hi! Do you know when the beta will start? The facebook event says 23. Juli at 17:00 PDT. But this would be 2AM on Thursday in Germany/Europe. When will it start here?

    • pulseimpact

      It will probably start 10 AM PDT because I think that’s when the original alpha started. Honestly, I don’t know, but it will take us a few hours to download it for sure depending on the file size. The exact time will likely be tweeted by the official destiny or bungie twitter.

  • aka del72

    i won a beta key for ps3 yesterday but couldnt play anymore than 5 mins of the game before the ps3 would freeze cant wait to try it xb1

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      your ps3 must be defective.

      • aka del72

        maybe but only happened with the beta

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          seriously though your ps3 should not be freezing every 5 minutes even with this beta. you might have too much stuff on your ps3 or something.

          • aka del72

            nothing else on it even formated the hard drive ,only thing i can think of is it a day 1 phat ps3 ,and think i read somewhere that it has slighty different amount of ram or something like that

          • aka del72

            only freezes with the beta ,throw in another game it works fine

          • evilfangs .

            It’s what happens when you take it apart to clean some dust lol.

          • aka del72

            dont explain why it only happens with the beta like i said every other game i try works fine,

          • Bush

            sounds like the beta might be pushing your ps3 to the limits. if it’s a phat day 1 edition you will need to re-paste the cpu. you will start getting the yellow light soon enough.

            the Halo3 beta killed 2 xboxes on me back in the day.

  • Guest

    Hope it doesn’t have the bad frame pacing of the PS3 and PS4 versions. I’d rather have the 900p and a rock steady framerate than the 1080p30 they’re trying to pull.

    • ElektroDragon

      The PS4 version was super smooth and looked fantastic, so I don’t know what you’re talking about. There were only a few moments of stutter during cutscenes, but its a BETA.

      • Guest

        Then read the DF articles on it. Definitely not “super smooth”. 30fps with uneven distribution is bad and once you notice it, you can’t unnotice it. Look at it more closely and you’ll see it.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          read your little articles while i actually play it.

          • Senses Failed

            Sick burn!

        • usrev

          um, yea the ps3 version has hiccups, the ps4 version doesn’t. no game runs 100% the same frame rate 100% of the time.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      liar plain and simple. there was no hiccups in the ps4 version. try again.

    • pulseimpact

      All tests have shown the game appears to have zero drops in frames. It’s stable and locked at 31. No version has frame pacing issues.

    • evilfangs .

      Having played the PS4 beta and getting two characters max beta level,
      there is no such thing as frame issues. It has also been noted that
      although X1 is 900p that is for the beta only and the full game will
      ship same as PS4 at 1080p 30fps

    • Ross Kemp

      Hahaha , your Internet connection must be from 1998 – Destiny runs crazy smooth on PS4 .
      Get a job and in return buy better Internet , you tramp .

    • ABP

      Destiny beta runs fine on ps4, pretty much a stable 30.
      And a stable 30fps at a beta around 1 and a half months before release is excellent on bungie.

    • KrisXX

      Become a gamer and get a PS4. Its a great thing being a gamer and
      playing all games across all consoles and not being some fanboy who acts
      like a child and bashes another console for no reason. BECOME A GAME
      AND NOT A FAN BOY, YOU WILL ENJOY LIFE MUCH MORE!!!!!

  • Echelon dog

    Can i have a code for destiny beta please? Thank You Sir.
    Twitter: Echelon_dog follow me Massage me private a code for the beta!

    • Technobeatdown

      “Massage me private”…….

      Like a pirate asking for a special favor……

    • Digiadam

      I am guessing spelling or grammar was not your strongest subject in school.

      However, such errors are hilarious!!!!!!

  • KDUMX

    Aqui no Brasil não tem pré venda …Que Fase! Vamos esperar setembro vlw. vamos mexer o doce e começar de uma vez por todas a pré venda no XBOX ONE

    • Rodrigo DeAraujo

      Faça uma pré order no Amazon que eles te enviar o código em meia hora. Recebeu o código vc vai e cancela o pedido pronto. Amazon só cobra na fatura quando o jogo é fisicamente enviado a você.

      • KDUMX

        Rapaz a ideia e boa, mais de fato o que dá raiva e estes negócios pela metade, mal acabado. A microsoft foi a primeira a levantar a bandeira do mundo on line, jogos on demand bla bla bla e já estamos no meio do ano e nada…. nem o COMANDO DE VOZ pra ligar o video game funciona…mais tudo bem, segue o jogo.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i am going to try the beta on the x1 as well just because i freaking can.

  • ambuckle

    What games are going on sale tomorrow? Deals with gold changes every Tuesday and we usually find out what to on Mondays.

    • Professor Oak

      They usually don’t show them here on Monday. Try XBLDB in 4.5 ish hours

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    I’ve been playing the beta on my ps4 for the past few days and I’ve gotta say… the game is worth the hype. It’s super fun, graphics are gorgeous, so much attention to the smallest details in the environment, no screen tearing whatsoever.. and huge! The beta is just a tiny chunk of the full game yet it’s still massive! I’m very impressed.

    All in all this game feels like borderlands meets halo to me… and that is a pretty aqesome combination ! I’ve been playing as a warlock and loving it. Probably going to stick with that character when the game launches.

    Speaking of the game launching… as long as the Xbox one version really does end up being 1080p then that’s the version I’m going to buy even tho Sony has some exclusive stuff..just because that’s where most my friends will be playing it. Can’t wait

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    game is okay, nothing to be hyped about imo. i like the story elements of the game though. liked the fact you can jump into a mission with other people in the game with you. but the multiplayer was a big disappointment for me. im just gonna wait till this game goes on sale during black friday somewhere.

  • Technobeatdown

    So anybody got the download code email from Bungie yet?

    • Catalyst

      Code comes with your preorder receipt or an email from the retailer. I don’t think Bungie has the codes.

      • Technobeatdown

        No no no……. Thats to redeem your beta status…. I’m talking about the DOWNLOAD codes they are sending out. Look on their site. You’ll see

        • Andres Leal

          there are going to be on 23 so you can download the game the same day thats go out.

  • Digiadam

    This game is way overhyped….not worth the hype at all.

    • deadbox102

      Games always are hyped too much.

  • scumbagculloch

    Really wanted to join the beta but I’ll be buying digitally. Bummer. Counting the days til release!

    • evilfangs .

      Microsoft like Sony should send you a beta code via email for pre-ordering the game digitally.

  • Kane7845

    Why should we, as Xbox gamers, celebrate being screwed over by bungie? We are are paying the same amount that the Playstation gamers are paying for the same game, but for less content. Is that fair? If Major Nelson decides to interview Bungie in the future about this game (which he will) then he should bring this up, (which he won’t) instead of totally ignoring the issue and acting totally blind about the inequities of the game itself…

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      Well because that’s how it works… just like xbox gamers will get more content for a game like evolve. It swings both ways.

      • Kane7845

        We’ll get content a few weeks EARLIER on the Xbox, not more content itself, which is different…

        • ZenFranklin

          They’ve (Bungie) already announced that the content exclusive to PS4 will come to Xbox One eventually for Destiny. Sure they got more time for the Beta, but Betas are bugged! The exclusive content isn’t game changing or anything. I’m sorry, but if you’re that upset about how you say Bungie “Screwed over Xbox”, you need to get over yourself. I guarantee you Sony threw buckets of money at Bungie for an exclusive content deal (to include the Beta). I fault no developer for making deals like that because nothing is guaranteed in this business.

          • Kane7845

            Perhaps you weren’t paying attention, but Bungie announced that the PS4 content will come to the Xbox IN A YEAR, by which time the content will be irrelevant, so perhaps it is YOU who needs to “get over himself” and read with understanding…

          • ZenFranklin

            But it’s still not exclusive. I knew it was a year later, but as you point out it will be irrelevant. So why complain about something you know won’t matter in a year, even if we got it first?

          • Kane7845

            Because WE ARE PAYING THE SAME AMOUNT FOR LESS CONTENT. Understand now?

          • ZenFranklin

            Content that you pointed out is irrelevant. Are you that upset when certain retailers get preorder bonuses? Same rule would apply, no? I’m simply pointing out that this has been a business model for years, and to fault Bungie who’s clearly shown they’re willing to support Xbox just the same makes your argument that Xbox fans are getting screwed by Bungie kind of Mute.

          • Kane7845

            Releasing content a year later is NOT supporting the Xbox “just the same”…

          • Catalyst

            Exclusive content comes with the territory of having two (three if you count Nintendo) corporations who have a console and are vying for your money. Just as people couldn’t play Halo on a PS3, Uncharted on an Xbox 360, or Zelda on either is because these companies want exclusive titles to help make their console more appealing. Microsoft pays a ton of money to get exclusive early content from EA and Call of Duty (Activision), while Sony has payed a lot to get exclusive early content for Destiny (also Activision). It’s not the developer you should be mad at, but either the publisher (again Activision) or the console owner (MS, Sony, Ninty), since they are the ones who have a say in the matter. In the end, as others have said, this has been a practice that has gone on for years, and it’s usually not the developers’ fault.

          • ZenFranklin

            Couldn’t have said it better! :D

          • Kane7845

            I understand about console exclusives, such as Halo, Uncharted, and Super Mario, since that, as you say is always how it’s been, and I understand a console getting the content a few weeks, or a month early (like Battlefield and Call of Duty) but what I DON’T understand is holding back content for an ENTIRE YEAR and then expecting this to be ok with the people who purchased the game for the SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY that it was sold to the the other console players getting the content. There is NO EXCUSE for that, and it shows a BLATANT disregard for those who will have to wait for this content. THAT is unprecedented and inexcusable, no matter HOW anyone tries to paper it over…

          • Catalyst

            Fair enough, but don’t get mad at Bungie. They really have no say when it comes to who gets exclusive what. They are paid to make a video game by the publisher, and it is up to the publisher to decide what content goes where; and it’s usually to whoever is willing to pay for it.

          • Kane7845

            I’m pretty sure that had a strong say in the matter when they went to Activision in the first place, so I’m pretty sure it is ok with them as well, if not their idea to do so in the first place…

          • beardyman3218

            They have no say in it, they make the game, the publisher decides were the content goes and it goes to the highest bidder. Same thing that happens with COD, Microsoft pay to get dlc early.

          • Catalyst

            If people aren’t still playing a largely multiplayer based game in a year, then it is Bungie who failed…

    • KrisXX

      Become a gamer and get a PS4. Its a great thing being a gamer and playing all games across all consoles and not being some fanboy who acts like a child and bashes another console for no reason. BECOME A GAME AND NOT A FAN BOY, YOU WILL ENJOY LIFE MUCH MORE!!

      • Kane7845

        So, by telling me to get a PS4, you ADMIT that the game won’t be worth buying on a Microsoft console, which is what I’ve been saying all along…

      • Digiadam

        No fanboys allowed here. Both systems are great.

      • deadbox102

        You’re an idiot. You became a fanboy in your first sentence.

      • Massamo

        what are you talking about and i have both consoles and both are great

    • http://raptr.com/unscleric/about UNSCleric

      Agreed 100%. This beta better be amazing if they want me to keep my pre-order.

    • Dylan

      If anything, Bungie got screwed by Microsoft. They wouldn’t publish any Bungie game that wasn’t Halo. So they had to go to Activision.

      Sony helped brunt some of the costs for Activision, so they get exclusive content. Get over it.

      • Kane7845

        If you like getting screwed by Bungie, then that is YOUR preference, not mine, so you “get over it” yourself…

        • Dylan

          I didn’t get screwed by Bungie. I researched which developers preferred which platform and purchased accordingly. Bungie had announced their partnership well ahead of time.

          I have a PS4 and a 360. Have been enjoying the beta.

          • Kane7845

            Then you also admit that the game is NOT WORTH PURCHASING on the Xbox console, which is what I’ve been saying ALL ALONG…

      • beardyman3218

        Is it timed exclusive content?

        • Dylan

          Yes, a year.

  • Lucas Sanches Cestari

    you will be able to download the beta for free or i will have to buy something? if yes, where i can buy the game?

    • evilfangs .

      You will need a beta code which you can get from pre-ordering Destiny.

    • Catalyst

      You can get the code by pre-ordering, but most places have been out of codes for over a week.

  • FiveMagic5

    Does anybody have any extra beta codes for X1 or X360?

    • Shomberlon

      The give each person 3 codes so I’m sure there will be a few knocking about. I’m still waiting to see if a friend wants mine (X1), if not you can have it.

      • FiveMagic5

        Yeah of they don’t want it I will gladly take it

  • Charles

    Shouldn’t the beta be available to those that don’t preorder the game in order to attract new players? What about those that are going to do digital download instead of preordering a disc? Oh well. It’s no that big a deal. I’m still deciding if I want to get this game or not.

  • VegaDD

    I pre ordered from amazon about a month ago and signed up on the bunjie site with the 9 digit code that they emailed me to get my beta code but it says that code has been used…so im not hapoy has anybody else had this problem?

    • evilfangs .

      Did you select your platform and region on the Bungie site? Just entering the pre-order code doesn’t entitle you to enter into the beta.

      • VegaDD

        Yes I selected platform and region.

        • evilfangs .

          When you go back to the Bungie website and select redeemed codes on your profile what does it say? Doesn’t it show your three beta codes?

          • VegaDD

            It doesn’t say anything,it’s just blank.

          • evilfangs .

            You’ve signed in and linked the correct console yea?

  • Charles

    To those that say it’s just business that Bungie went with the Sony deal then I would say that a company shouldn’t choose a money making deal over their fans. Without customers to buy the product there will be no game. Exclusive deals or no exclusive deals. It’s one thing for a game to give a month or two early release for dlc preference toward one particular console. But a year?? That seems a bit much. I mean a year. That’s a long time. To me Bungie shouldn’t punish one side of their fan base to make extra money. They might lose customers like that.
    These exclusive deals mostly hurt gamers. As an Xbox gamer I wouldn’t want Playstation gamers to have to wait a year for content either. Especially if we both pay the same price for a game. The same price but wait a year. Ha.
    Unless there is an angle that I don’t see.

    • Kane7845

      Agreed, and there is no other angle, aside from the one that Bungie is using as they screw over the Xbox gamers for an entire year…

    • Some guy

      Bungie isn’t filled with bright people so I’d say they just stayed true to their old self.
      I mean, those are the guys that left MS because they were tired of making only Halo and MS being too rough… so they went to Activision who is famous for not paying their employes and made a lifelong contract to make a halo clone.
      What could go wrong, I mean, things went so well with Bizarre Creation after they did the same thing.

      • Michael Burden

        Theres is a BIG difference between Bungie’s deal with Activision and what went dooen with Bizarre Creations. Bizarre Creations was bought by Activision, Bungie only has a publishing deal with Activision for 10 years on Destiny. Activision does not own Bungie or the Destiny IP, they are still technically an independent developer.

        I’m not saying I agree with them signing with Activision for the publishing of Destiny, but Bungie isn’t stupid and went into this with open eyes. They weren’t going to lose another IP to a publisher like they did with Halo.

        • Some guy

          Didn’t know that, it’s a bit better.
          I guess we’ll have to wait and see, Free Radical got killed by a contract like that.(As in, you have to deliver a produit to get paid but the publisher refuse to publish it for 5 years)

  • Peter

    Hope theres a good sale coming up. The last 5 day sale was damn near lackluster to say the least. But being ms the bar is set low expectation wise. Looking forward to more repeat sale items and more stuff being sold at or more likely above hardcopy current price =/

    • Some guy

      last 5 days? I’d say the last 5 months.
      And considering the ultimate sale just ended, I doubt it’s going to get any better until they “recover” from the sale.

      • Peter

        Agreed its pretty pathetic that with ms’s position of owning the marketplace that these are the supposedly the best they can come up with.

  • splashpaint

    please put state of decay dlc on sale please.

    • Peter

      Again? Seriously out of all the things never on sale

      • Praytoseedeath

        They have had a few sale on the first dlc but not the second, that I’ve seen anyway…

  • Chumis

    Requires gold for play the beta, isn’t?

    • Professor Oak

      Requires gold to play any online games, so I would assume so. If you have an Xbox with out gold, you might as well switch to PS

      • Sknots

        mmmmm, im pretty sure you need PS+ to play online now

        • Professor Oak

          Not on PS3

        • Massamo

          on ps4 don’t need to to play game need to do the pvp and raid stuff

      • VegaDD

        Troll

  • Rick

    I will receive a couple of extra codes tomorrow, I’ll be more than happy to give them away :)

    • FiveMagic5

      Can I have one?

    • http://ilferreira.tumblr.com/ Jorge Ferreira

      Hey I want one too!

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      i want negative one please.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        that means i have to give you one then doesn’t it? and i thought i was being clever. ha!

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          i really don’t need one btw in case you are confused.

    • AgentLead

      I would love one please

  • Andres Leal

    About people who are asking codes are going to be on 23 thats what bungie page says.

  • Professor Oak

    That’s odd, XBLDB hasn’t got a hold of the deals yet

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I was just coming here to say the same thing. So nothing has been reduced in price yet. Maybe MS is getting smart and waiting till later to lower the prices. Don’t make sense though because if there is something I see tonight I buy it early. I work a 10 hour shift tomorrow so something new to try tonight would be awesome.

      • Dave Breadner

        I just assumed they started at 0:00 GMT.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          That would make sense.

          • Professor Oak

            Picked up Doom 1 & 2 and Quake Arena the other night, already had Wolfenstien 3D from previous sale. I like to play the oldies now and then

          • ImTheMetalLord

            I picked up Both Dooms as well and Wolfenstien 3D too. I had the older version (which I think is all the same just no cover art anymore) since it was only a few bucks. I also broke down and bout 1 and 2 Bioshock. 3 games less than $20.oo. I couldn’t pass on it.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            playing wolf 3d now, to me, is like getting a tooth pulled without Novocaine. i literally got a headache because everything looked the same and i couldn’t jump. i loved that sequence in the new wolfenstein where you could jump and look around in the old game. that was sweet for a minute.

          • Some guy

            I have to same problem, that said I don’t see why you should be able to jump or look around as everything is flat.

      • Ross Kemp

        MS ” getting smart ” , this generation ??????……..hahaha .

        • ImTheMetalLord

          I guess your mom never taught you that if you don’t have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all since everything you have to say isn’t nice whatsoever. You get to wear the Troll Crown until someone else takes it away from you.

          • FiveMagic5

            Finally somebody says it

          • Ross Kemp

            Because you were not man enough ????

          • FiveMagic5

            You do know there are girls on this right? For example my boyfriend and I use this account, just because somebody doesn’t want to comment on how immature and rude you are because they have better things to do than make you happy about entering a fight on the internet does not mean we “aren’t man” enough.

      Too short. Only a few days. :(

      • Gazmaster3D

        Oh well I guess I will have to give my codes away once I get them seeing as I’m thousands of miles away from my One for the next few weeks.

        • aka del72

          love a code for xb1 if you wouldnt mind sharing

    • maxy

    • FiveMagic5

      I’m considering Injustice and The Raven

  • Jared

    the raven episode are up to 5GB For all the eps make room for it.

  • Guest

    MEH! Played the beta on the PS4 and it’s a game that doesn’t deliver on its hype AT ALL. Plus no splitscreen will make this game never be as great as Halo was and still is.

  • Praytoseedeath

    Picked up darksiders, arkham asylum and all the raven episodes… And my backlog grows ever longer :)

  • maxy

    And guys be aware, today a new arcade game for Kinect is releasing for free. The game is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Training Lair. In my country is available now and im downloading.

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      we don’t have it here in the u.s maxy, not yet any way.

      • maxy

        You will get it soon.

        • MURD3R HE WROTE

          yeah probably not on x1. thanks for the heads up though. If you need a destiny code and don’t find one let me know maxy. I’d be happy to give ya one when i get it.

          • maxy

            Yes please?

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            you do have an x1 right? If you do add me on xbl, and i’ll send it to you as soon as i have it.

          • maxy

            Wow, I have 360 only, won’t work for 360?

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            i have my code redeemed for x1. it depends on the person with the original code what system they redeemed it for. you need to find someone with 360 codes. sorry.

          • maxy

            Oh okay, :((

          • maxy

            Whatever I pre- ordered for my local store they will have a code for me tomorrow.

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            cool. glad you will get to play it.

          • maxy

            Thank you, me too! :)))

          • maxy

            Oh and I forgot, thank you so much for your offer.

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            anytime.

          • maxy

            :))

          • Ross Kemp

            360 only ?
            Get a job , tramp .

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s sublime .

          • maxy

            Its for 360 unfortunately.

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s great .

        • Ross Kemp

          That’s fabulous .

    • Ross Kemp

      That’s fascinating .

      • maxy

        Yes I agree, your moms twats are fascinating.

        • Ross Kemp

          That’s wonderful .

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      what the freck? if it is anything like the last 3 then count me out.

      • maxy

        Okay.

    • Some guy

      Just saying, there’s a reason it’s free.
      swinging virtual TMNT weapons with terrible detection is only fun for 5 minutes.

      • maxy

        No not at all, its pretty funny game, I like it so far.

  • 0rtep

    any word yet on what game is on sale for XBO ?

    • Gazmaster3D

      Have a guess…or just scroll down a page or 2 ;)

      • 0rtep

        oh i saw it ha i see what you did there thanks

  • AgentLead

    Why can I not preorder the digital version on xbl for Xbox 1? I do not want discs…I want the dam beta code…how is this not available on this system? Xbox is totally dropping the ball here..seriously

    • Michael Burden

      It is coming in the very near future, patience grasshopper as there sin’t anything of value being released yet to fret over.

    • Nick Peck

      Seriously, you should read around before posting a comment like this lol. If you had looked around you would already know that digital preordering is coming very soon, though it’s not known if it will be in time for Destiny. It’s said to start with Sunset Overdrive, but anything can happen at this point.

      For now, just buy the game when it’s on the XBL store, download it and play when it’s ready. Pretty easy if you ask me, you won’t die if you don’t play it the second the servers are live (although I know waiting sucks!!).

      As for the beta code, go to the store (one that participates), pre order it to get the code and there you go. If you don’t like it, go back to said store and cancel said pre order.

      • AgentLead

        I don’t care about sunshit overdrive. I’m talking about the big hooplah around the destiny beta…and that if I want to play it I have to order the game on disc. This is totally backwards Xbox. I do not want discs..I want a digital version of everything. I wouldn’t care about preordering if it didn’t come with the beta code. But since it does..and Xbox does not offer me a way of receiving one with a digital preorder I’m a little upset.

        • MURD3R HE WROTE

          you WILL NOT speak to us in that tone of typing young man/lady.

          • AgentLead

            I do apologize..I’m just frustrated…I have been a xbl member since the beta.since xbl came on a disc and the only games were NFL fever and moto gp…over 10 years…I expect them to make this work as it should.

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            I was just poking fun. all good. I understand, everyone wants it. It is coming though.

        • Michael Burden

          You do realize you can pre-order from Amazon, they will send you a Beta code minutes after, then you can cancel the pre-order if you choose – and it costs you nothing.

          • AgentLead

            That is a retarded workaround. Just make it work on xbl..I don’t get it…microsoft touted this system as the end all media box for your living room. At one point considered releasing it without a discdrive. But yet they drop the ball on their biggest release and not offer their customers a digital preorder option so they can participate in the beta too…PlayStation uses have a digital preorder option…this is extremely frustrating

          • Michael Burden

            Seems to me you are just looking for something to whine about, as this is nothing to get your panties in a bunch over, I presented you a way to get into the Beta easily and free, whether you choose to use it or do nothing and continue to cry over it is your call.

          • Nick Peck

            The PS4′s digital preordering was just implemented not that long ago so they didn’t always have that option either. I think destiny is the first game with preloading available. Again, this is how it is until they say more.

          • closingracer

            Digital pre-ordering has been available on the PS4 for a while now… the ability to pre-load it was implemented recently

          • maxy

            Its not free, since you need a credit card. Last I checked not everybody own a credit card.

          • Ross Kemp

            Only kids and tramps don’t have a credit card .

          • closingracer

            Debit cards can be used , Paypal if you don’t want to use your debit card directly onto the Xbox…. You also can buy $70 in Xbox cash Gift cards to buy it and I say $70 to include Taxes.

          • maxy

            I don’t need the whole game, I just need the Beta and check if its good. By the way I got it pre ordered

          • closingracer

            You still said “Last I check not everybody own a credit Card” … There is ways to buy stuff digitally on Xbox or PS4 without a Credit card

          • maxy

            Yeah I know, but not in Amazon. and still paypal is worser.

        • Nick Peck

          Well you can keep complaing like everyone else I laugh and yawn at or just accept that’s JUST HOW IT IS at the moment. So either do what was suggested or shut up :p

          Seriously, I agree that digital preordering should have been ready to go a long time ago, but sadly it isn’t. Nothing you can do about it until they do it.

          Just pre order it, cancel it and then buy it on the XBL store as that’s about all you can do at the moment. Hopefully they will have an update sometime soon about digital preordering and when it will go live. Maybe they will even put up a list of games that will be on it as well when it starts.

        • closingracer

          Then Buy a Ps4 :p

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      I asked microsoft about this, and they said there’s no plans at the moment. Also I believe the devs of sunset overdrive have said pre-ordering will be available for their game in october. Now, that could possibly mean it’ll be available when the actual game destiny drops, but not now. Just have to wait a bit longer. This is just for a beta anyways.

  • MURD3R HE WROTE

    I’ll Have 1 Extra Code for X1 when they give them out if someone needs it. The first person to message me on xbl with “King Koopa” will get it. I’ll add you and give it to you as soon as I have it. My GT is the same as my name on here.

    • aka del72

      me please

    • AgentLead

      Sent….hope I made it in time!

  • Derek D

    Does anyone else have issues with their XBO? I’m on my third one and this is where I’m getting off…. at least for a couple of years. My day one edition had an issue where the controller would randomly disconnect while playing. My second box would not launch games and constantly crash and this third box also has issues starting up games and looses sound randomly, forcing me to have to restart the system.
    I just wonder, how did they go from such a stable platform on the 360 to this. Now… forgive me if I’m wrong, for all I know the 360 was also a mess at launch also. I only switched to a 360 in the last three years, but I never had any issues with it.

    • Foster Brian

      I’m on my second with the first being the titanfall bundle had the same issue as your first but also affected my Wi-Fi. Turned out my unit shipped with a bad antenna. Got my second one in April and so far no problems. Just keep in mind anytime there is neww technology the first year has its bugs, as long as the warranty period is active don’t sweat it.

      • Foster Brian

        New*

      • Four Chan² / Side B

        My brothers caught on fire inside the fan when he got his Day One console.

    • Gazmaster3D

      The 360 had the RROD fiasco on a much larger scale at launch than the XBO issues you unfortunately have. You are just really unlucky by all accounts.

      • Derek D

        Yeah, I didn’t really think about then RROD. I guess because that’s more or a hardware issue, where these are more software related.

    • closingracer

      My Xbox one that I bought at launch and PS4 I bought about 5 Months ago both work Fine…. I know some people who have had issues with both consoles so it really depends on the actual device you have… All Electronics will have some that are defective and your just very unlucky to have 3 of them. I would suggest going to a Microsoft Store directly since they can see whats wrong and give you a new one on the spot I believe.

    • Four Chan² / Side B

      Had my Xbox One since launch, works great. Are you in the beta Program? if so that could have problems, I mean mine when I was in the last Beta had issues starting up and shutting down but once full release came it worked perfect.

      Oh and on a note: I owned 12 Xbox 360s, 8 of them which were defective.

    • Nick Peck

      I have two XBO’s and haven’t had anything like that other than when BF4 would constantly crash (but it was the games fault). Do you have your audio options correctly setup? Did you ever consider that maybe you have a defective controller and that it’s not the system?

      I also had 12 360′s (with 2 launch systems, I always traded up over the years for the LE systems) and never had an issue with any of them either so maybe I’m just lucky? Though I do take good care of all of my stuff as well.

      I’m not sure what to tell you, though I don’t know what your setup is like as there are many variables in your situation. Getting 3 “broken” systems is very unlikely, so it could be something you or someone else is doing. Or something just isn’t setup correctly (audio wise) or you have a buggy game that might need to be re downloaded.

      It’s also normal to need to reset the system every once and awhile.

  • closingracer

    Been playing it on my PS4 and so far Still find the game boring … Overhyped imo

    • Derek D

      I don’t think its overhyped, but I do think that expectations are extremely high. They did create the Halo universe after all. And that’s where I feel like Destiny lacks… story. Destiny tries to tell a story, but because it plays like an MMO, it gets lost in translation. It could just be because its a beta, but I have a feeling the story won’t stick put much.

      • closingracer

        I have played the Alpha and Beta and it is overhyped … Feels like just another shooter with no story

        • Four Chan² / Side B

          Destiny is Halo with missions instead of chapters. No story, no substance, just a failure waiting to happen. I hope they didn’t spend $500,000 on this game as the rumors say because it’s not worth that much to be spent on.

          • Nick Peck

            You are missing three more 0′s. Plus, it’s obvious you know nothing about that game from this last comment lol. Did you ever think they are keeping the story hush hush until launch? I know, what a concept!!! It must be a sin to not know the whole game before it actually comes out.

            There is a story for it but they didn’t really include any of it in the alpha/beta for obvious reasons (well they should be obvious lol, but I suppose not). There is just a little to do so you can see what the game is like and that’s it. It is a beta, so are you expecting the full story reveal?

          • closingracer

            Spoken like a true fanboy of an unproven game believing the hype…..

          • Nick Peck

            Spoken like a true bandwagon humping fantard that know’s nothing about the game and hasn’t bothered to watch / read what’s available out there. If you bother to look at any media you will see how many different places there are, how many different characters ect.

          • closingracer

            Your hopping on the bandwagon not me…. I’ve read about it and played it and I say MEH

          • Nick Peck

            Good, then you won’t annoy anyone in the game. If you don’t like it you don’t like it, but don’t sit here and spit out garbage posts when you don’t know much about the game.

            Playing a beta for a short bit when there is no story included isn’t exactly a good way to “review” a game in it’s entirety. But hey, whatever floats your boat :) Enjoy it, don’t enjoy it, I don’t really care.

          • Billsnap

            So if you both only played the beta what makes you think you know more about the game then he does?

          • closingracer

            Lmao garbage posts? I’ve read about it and played enough to have an opinion (ever heard of those? I don’t think so) the game has enough of the story to base an opinion of it. Unless you have a ps4 you have no clue what’s even in the beta

        • Nick Peck

          It has a lot of story but you don’t do ANY of it in the Alpha, and not really any in the beta lol. So how can you say that when you have no idea? The game is massive and there is a lot more to it than you know.

          • closingracer

            Sure and pigs fly. Please fanboy… I don’t read much in the hype.. Specially when there is more and better games coming out in the same time frame

          • Nick Peck

            And people are stupid, so thanks for proving that.

          • closingracer

            Like you?

          • Nick Peck

            Wow, that was a good one, thanks for proving it yet again bud :D Keep it up!

          • closingracer

            I am stupid because I don’t like a game? Lmao

        • Some guy

          I didn’t play the game but some games are still incredible without story, like painkiller, serious sam, doom, quake.
          That said I’m almost sure Destiny won’t play like that and that’s a shame.

  • Hollywood Rick

    do you need gold to play?

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      yeah you do.

  • Four Chan² / Side B

    Destiny is Halo with a new paint job, even though I am getting the game because nothing else good is really coming out until October, i’ll be playing it. Though if something good had came out I wouldn’t have even picked it up. If Bungie had its way Destiny would of been a Halo for the PS4, which what it basically is.

    • Michael Burden

      That is as ignorant as saying Halo is nothing but Marathon with a new paint job.

      • Nick Peck

        Yah, four chan seems like another winner around here :(

    • Four Chan² / Side B

      It’s nice on how my other comment was deleted detailing the similarities between Destiny and Halo.

  • Steve

    Anyone get there Xbox code from the Bungie website yet?

    • Four Chan² / Side B

      • Burnt Offering
