Ha! Lucky. I still need to pre-order mine and obtain a beta code. Don't even know if it's possible at this point.
Crazyglues  +   408d ago
@ randomass171

yeah it's still possible, I got it from Amazon and they are still giving codes when you pre-order it.

How you get your beta code if they don't start sending them out till the summer time?
Muadiib  +   408d ago
Just a warning, Bungie's games never look as good as their earlier videos, ever. I like them as much as the next guy but they can be seriously deceptive with bullshots and misleading videos.
Ittoryu  +   408d ago
@trd4l1fe I preordered at game stop and got my code in my receipt.
Crazyglues  +   408d ago
@ TRD4L1fe

For Amazon.com they send you the code by email after you pre-order and then you go to the Bungie.net site and put it in to get in the beta..

You enter it in the code redemption portal --> and you get a message saying code redeemed successfully

And then when the beta can be downloaded you will get an email from bungie with a code to download it... I did mine in Feb.. it shows the date too of when you entered your code.

@ above

right you get a code that put you into the beta, but nobody will get the actually code till they send out invites tru email so technically we dont have beta codes yet

september 9th hurry up!!!
randomass171  +   408d ago
Curse you Bungie and your need to have long development cycles to ensure an excellent product! Why can't you work miracles?! D:<
OmegaShen  +   408d ago
Hurry up beta!!!
Blackleg-sanji  +   408d ago
forgot about that!!! yes!!!
OmegaShen  +   407d ago
Good thing I got a PS4, plus the extra stuff.
S2Killinit  +   407d ago
don't forget the exclusive content on PS4
Massacred  +   408d ago
The Star Wars Influence is strong in this game.
Abriael  +   408d ago
I don't think Star Wars invented jet bikes
Massacred  +   408d ago
Neither do I
Gamer666  +   407d ago
Outside of the bike screen shot shown the Halo influence is way more than star wars. everytime I have seen gameplay I think this is more a next gen halo then a new bungie game.
Scatpants  +   407d ago
Why, because they shoot guns? The character designs and much of the gameplay look very different. What would it take for you to think its not like Halo? would they have to do a visual novel or a soccer management sim?
Gamer666  +   407d ago

Have you seen any gameplay from the game? It's physics and mechanics are almost exactly Halo. The size and openness of the environments feel like Halo as well.

The art direction is different and the weapons are different, but they have many of the same characteristics as Halo.

By the way.... That is not a bad thing... If you have solid gameplay, mechanics and general environment designs that are top notch then re-using them is good.

It reminds me of Marathon a bit. The uniforms and enemies have a classical look.

Bonkerz  +   408d ago
I know people are gonna disagree with me but this game for some reason just doesnt excite me. I like Halo for the scifi style FPS and for the realistic type FPS i go with Battle field.
Also cannot wait for the new Gears, that is going to be epic.

ShowGun901  +   408d ago
I don't disagree with you, but IMO i always look at the developer, not the franchise. look at naughty dog.


each epic, all different, but by the same people. thats what i look at when dropping $60 on something ive never played. would you say 343's halo is as good as halo 2? or gears judgement as good as gears 3? or Black ops as good as modern warefare 1? its the dev, not the licence.
Shadonic  +   407d ago
Exactly what Showgun said, I would at least try out the beta and cancel the preorder if you dont like it.
mediate-this  +   407d ago
To be honest though, naughty dog was never the pinnacle of anything in ps2 era, they had the ps3 made uncharted, was good, number 2 was amazing three was good. Tlou in my opinion is not good, im in the minority i know that, but i could not play that game through, ill buy it again ps4 give it another run, so im open to that, i buy almost every game at release so the money is nothing.

Naughty dog blew up ps3 era and were mediocre ps2 era.
Scatpants  +   407d ago
I liked Halo 4 the best. The faster paced gameplay really did the trick for me.
elhebbo16  +   408d ago
Battlefield isn't realistic, Hell Arma 3 might be a simulator but even that isn't %100 realistic.
Shadonic  +   407d ago
omg the physics in that game :(
AceBlazer13  +   408d ago
those bikes, i want those bikes.

Daaamn Bungie, you getting closer to that world domination. Looks amazing!
GentlemenRUs  +   408d ago
Now I wait for the BETA to start, I already did my code to be entitled to a key when it starts :P

It's going to be a fun Summer!
Scatpants  +   407d ago
I preordered on xbox one and PS4 so I could try both. I'll most likely cancel the XB1 version because the PS4 will probably be higher res.
RebelWAC  +   408d ago
Soo hyped for this one.
D3ATH_DRIV3R_777  +   408d ago
September 9th? hell yeah!
Godz Kastro  +   408d ago
I wonder how many people here used to loathe bungie as an xbox developer are now stoked for their game. Just wondering...
cyphertech  +   407d ago
Kennytaur  +   407d ago
I wouldn't be surprised if this technique ends up looking as good if not better than real-time rendered AO, which tends to be a bit flickering. Destiny looking brilliant as always.
Pandamobile  +   407d ago
Baked AO has historically looked better than real-time approximations.

Real-time AO can support dynamic environments.
Baked AO can look better.

Real-time AO eats up GPU cycles.
Baked AO takes up a lot of memory.

It's interesting that they're making a big deal about their new offline AO technique when everyone and their mothers are switching to real-time approximations.
timotim  +   407d ago
Destiny and Halo 5 will be my FPSs for 2014...dont need any others.
bitboi  +   407d ago
sweet! I've been dying to see their Advanced Ambient Occlusion!....yeaaahhh!!!!
HeavenlySnipes  +   407d ago
Those look like the hover bikes from Jak 3
Asuka  +   407d ago
so apparently each planet/location in Destiny is going to be about the size of the entire game of Halo: Reach

beatled  +   407d ago
cannot wait for this game

here's hoping for 1080p 60 on ps4, or at least 1080p 30
gobluesamg  +   407d ago
So can this game be played as mostly single player with limited multiplayer elements or are you with others at all times? Looks amazing.
Paul0035  +   407d ago
I'm glad its on PS3!!!
Ch1d0r1  +   407d ago
This will be the system seller for me.
D3ATH_DRIV3R_777  +   407d ago
I'll be getting this.
shysun  +   407d ago
This game will sell like hot cakes! Day one for me!
Skate-AK  +   407d ago
Looks fun. Wonder if there is racing in the game or just for transportation.
AlexFili  +   407d ago
Wonder why there's no thought of a PC version (or even Wii U)
Pandamobile  +   407d ago
Because Activision are dumb.
anesthesique  +   407d ago
This game is gonna be golden.
cfc83  +   407d ago
They look more like air craft vechiles than bikes
chronoforce  +   407d ago
This game has sold me a PS4.
Gunstar75  +   407d ago
This game has to be amazing
Having been a gamer for over 30 years, this Has to the most hyped game ever.

It seems like Bungee can't take a dunmp without telling us about it.
Jedislayer  +   407d ago
Really Can't wait for this game to come out. But I can't decide Which console to play it on!
