Oh, I already know full well why they said they'd have the game first. It's because they'll have a timed exclusive on the beta, not the game itself. The game itself comes out on everything else on the exact, same day. They're just being sly about it, because words.

Plus it exclusively has strike map, pvp map, 3 armor sets, exclusive spaceships and 2 weapons till atleast fall 2015 certainly makes the PS4 version more appealing at launch.

Yes, but I was specifically talking about their wording.

Found a few people on Crunchyroll giving away beta codes, so I picked one up for this. Installing it now on my PS4.

This is the first time I've played an FPS on a PlayStation console and not absolutely fucking hated the controller because of it. Absolutely shit battery life aside, I really like this controller.

Gonna be starting this up on PS3 soon, since I got a beta code when I pre-ordered the PS4 bundle. THREE to be exact, but already gave the other two to friends.

Was able to play the beta for a few hours at my buddy's. Played as a Titan.

I like that using skills upgrades said skills and all the neat little buffs to earn on armor/weapons. I almost went into rep grinding mode for the Vanguard faction from the beacon missions. Auto-Rifles feel really strong at close to a mid range, especially if you're good at headshots. Flashbangs are really good in single player.

Tanks feel really strong without a turret/supercharge on them. I had some horrible lag problems when I tried to use a shotgun that weren't there when using the other guns. I had some horrible lag problems in a few matches in general, mostly isolated lag heavy periods (Supercharge as a Titan on a player only to be (double) melee killed by them and having them die a few seconds later). I had no problems in the single player despite thinking it may have been a bit too easy after I unlocked my Flashbang and got some Discipline gear.

Overall, I enjoyed it. I may pick it up sometime in the future.

Tip: Crouch a lot in multiplayer when approaching or defending a point for great effectiveness. It either:
A. Makes your dot disappear from motion tracker
or
B. Makes your dot blink on the motion tracker.

Couldn't figure out which. Still really good for sneaking up on areas.

Do you happen to know when this beta ends? On PlayStation, anyway.

Buddy said the 29th I think but what I've read has said the 27th so I'm not entirely sure. He knocked out about an hour ago.

Ah, okay. I know it's at least as long as the 26th. Someone at Bungie said that you'd get items in the finished game for playing that day.

My connection is such crap I can't even download the game. I don't know why but I feel like Verizon is throttling our internet or something lately because it never used to be this bad. :( No Destiny Beta for me.

Depends on your area. I don't really have problems with Comcast.

Seriously?

Okay, umm... how would you like it? PM? Skype? Here, since no one else has an Xbox One to steal it and use it on?

Skype will do thanks.

Probably won't work due to regional account but I'll let you know.

Actually, when Bungie.net asked me what version of the beta I wanted, there were multiple region choices for both PlayStation consoles, but both Xbox consoles were just "Global". So the servers don't seem to be regional at all on Xbox 360/Xbox One. You should be good.

I've gotten my hands on two PS4 codes, three XB1 codes and one 360 code and have used or given them all away. I seem to be a beta code magnet.

Nami gave me a beta code. I just played for...three or four hours without realizing it? It plays very well. Pretty damn pretty for a beta. And especially the 360 version. Still figuring things out. I kinda wish I figured out what an emblem was before I spent money on it.

Trying to find me a cool cape scarf. Will write more when I can.

Nuva figured out how to get into PVP.

Nuva figured out Destiny's PVP is hella more fukkin aggressive than Halo. People definitely work as teams or die.

Also got me a yellow scarf.

I got a rocket launcher now and I'm level 7.

Why can't I stop playing this
