Destiny PS4 Beta Already Available for Pre-Load for Some: 13.2 GB Download, 14.3 GB on Hard Disk

Apparently quite a few user are reporting on Reddit and NeoGAF that the PS4 beta of Bungie's Destiny is already available for pre-load for them.
Apparently, that's true for those that pre-ordered digitally on the PSN, and only in some regions so far. (Destiny, PS4)

I received an email from Bungie that links me to the Destiny site asking me what region I'm from and what platform i want my code for, but when i select both of those things it says something along the lines of "codes aren't available at this time, check back on July 17th".

that happens for PS4/Europe. They said they'll solve before the 17th.

For other regions you still have to wait for the 17th to get the actual download code. Apparently only digital preorders on the PSN get to pre-download.

Just checked there, I have a ps4 digital pre-order and I'm based in Ireland, couldnt pre-downlaod the beta. Will keep people informed if and when this changes.

The pre-load is (of course) only for the full version.

these codes aren't for beta, they only give you cards.
fei-hung  +   420d ago
The codes came from limited edition trading cards, but what they do and how they will work with the game,that info has not been released.

If you go to the redeem codes section under your Bungie profile, it tells you further information will be released at a later date next to each code you have entered.

Thanks fei

Whelp...looks like I won't be trying the demo any time soon. With my paltry 100GB of data per month, this would very likely destroy my bank account with overages. That's a bummer

data limits? In this day and age?! That's insane man, sorry to hear that. I've been with my ISP for over ten years now and they've never had a data limit on any of their packages thankfully. And they love themselves a free upgrade, when I joined I was on 2mb connection, their basic package at the time. Now I'm on 100mbps, which is now their standard package :D Thanks UPC, thanks for not being nazis like Eircom.
Crazay  +   420d ago
Data caps run rampant in canada and I'm a rural customer so we get doubly pumped. High cost, low data caps and low speed.

What I love is that I got disagrees that I won't be downloading the demo because of my internet...it's not speculation that's fact. Some people who frequent this site need to be sterilized to curb stupidity.

Fine and well if you're in a UPC territory. Can't get it in wexford and like you said eircom are a disgrace so I'm stuck with WiMAX of all things
christian hour  +   420d ago
@monkey602 Ah yes, I hear wiMax is spreading across the nation, though I have been lied to through song before so I take that with a grain of salt :P I was living in an eircom zone for 6 months bout 3 years ago, worst 6 months of my life haha. Tell Wexico I said hello!

Some people just disagree for the hell of it on this site. I was trying to point out once or twice that I don't get charged for digital psn pre-orders, even posted a screencap for proof, still got a good amount of disagrees :) Fully agree on the sterilization. You should have to add a reason for agreeing-disagreeing like you do when approving articles, stop people from mass spamming it (to an extent)
Lukas_Japonicus  +   420d ago
Lmao, 7 disagrees for simply saying you have download limits. N4G...you crazy.
Crazay  +   420d ago
My guess is they don't know if their uncle is their brother or father.
Rob_Ko  +   420d ago
doesn't work for me, and I pre ordered on EU PSN
CRASHBASHUK  +   420d ago
try now I am downloading it now
Kal853  +   420d ago
I have an unused code. First come first served.

moodymofo  +   420d ago
yea i just did mine its a little bit of a process by linking your psn to bungie.net to your email but its not too bad but if you got preorder codes you might want to do it now and not wait till the day of the beta cause it says some verification could take up to 24 hours
Salooh  +   420d ago
Waiting for 17 july :) . Hope this game is as good as hype. Will be expecting a normal game. Would be awesome if it's more then a normal game ...
kingmushroom  +   420d ago
I need to pre load this too, hopefully they do this for the physical copy buyers cus I bought the limited Edition.
CRASHBASHUK  +   420d ago
mine is pre-loading now ready for next week I pre-ordered from ps store if I don't like the game I cancel it using transaction history if I like it I keep the pre-order
and this can be done to any ps store pre-order game in EU

That's good to know about canceling in transaction history I didn't know that. Now do you get a full refund or just store credit?
Rob_Ko  +   420d ago
they won't refund you because they take money just before game launches, not when you preorder
BiPolarBear  +   420d ago
When did i have to preorder a game to play its beta? Betas should be open to everyone so they can have a decision on buying it or not. I'm most likely going to hold off on this game until i get some personal experience with it.
zerog  +   420d ago
Just go to gamestop or whatever your countries store is and put the minimum $5 or so down on it to get the beta code. That'll give you a little over a month to try it and oif you don't like it just change your money to something else or get a refund.
BiPolarBear  +   420d ago
Not a bad idea. Thanks
dragon82  +   420d ago
Preorder it on Amazon and just cancel after they sent you the beta code. No money exchanges hands and you don't even need to leave your house.
Elwenil  +   420d ago
Methinks you are confused about the difference between a beta test and a demo.
solidsheep  +   420d ago
I pre-order Destiny from best buy, but I have yet to received my beta code. Should I be worried its been only 2day?
CannonB8  +   420d ago
In case anyone is checking on the PS Store on PC. If you click your "Pre-Ordered" Destiny package, it'll take you to the retail game page and where the price should be, it'll have "Download to your PS4". This will add the Beta to your Download Queue.
Just did it myself and it's downloading now.
leemo19  +   420d ago
Bungie should give out the codes a day early, I'm sure no one wants to wait for the beta to dl the day we get to play it.
monkey602  +   420d ago
Absolutely. The way it should be
