Destiny experienced the biggest console beta ever for a new IP, Activision said today.
I was one of them...enjoyed every minute
Millisecond this. Have I understood this comment game correctly?
And I think I speak for most of us when I say; this was the best beta we ever played. Can't wait for September 9th.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Beta, I wonder how long I would have replayed the same 5 missions over and over and over again before I got bored. I know I would still be playing it now if it was available, and I can't remember the lat game beta/demo that I enjoyed so much when given so 'little'. Now, I'm going to upgrade my Destiny pre-oreder to the Limited Edition, for the extra DLC.
4.6 million Beta = 6-7 Million Actual sales once game is released. I'm definitely getting this, but didn't play the Beta.
And i was not one of them.
Lol... Such a silly PR thing to say "Console" beta for a "new" IP... Soooo... Its competition is what? Lol Still cool of them to do.. I think its ballsy to give people access before they pay a cent.. Shows confidence in their work
Titanfall would be one.
Lol.. Good call, but the destiny beta was on way more platforms no?
1 more platform.
Ya fair enough.. Destiny got PS3 and 4 but titanfall got PC..
Excited for sept 9th now!
I really enjoyed the alpha and beta but I'm not so sure if I will fork out £45 on release. Some of the recent news regarding the planets confined to a single location is off-putting. It seems as if they're holding additional locations for DLC. I hope they prove me wrong though.
Eh, don't worry man. Bungie already said the beta was about 10% the content and at Level 8 we barely scratched the surface of the game. They also said every area to explores is at least the size of the entire campaign of Halo Reach. It was just a beta, not a demo. Also, a lot of this news we are hearing is simply coming from a few people data mining the beta build. I think we will find out more from Bungie in the coming weeks of it's actual amount of content. Also, I am curious of the final download size of the game. That will really tell the story of what we can expect.
To be precise,what you have played in the beta is 25-30% of what will release with retail not including dlc.There's been a uproar at the size of the game online over the last few days after bungie released the mission structure.Unfortunately it really is not that big a game excluding multiplayer.
I hope you're right. Best to just wait and see what else they reveal.
To be really precise if you go only by the number of locations and Story missions you would have seen 20% of the locations (moon with only 1 mission I don't count as having really seen that location) and based on the rumour of 32 story missions that wpuld equate to roughly 19%. That doesn't factor in that we only have seen loot for maximum lvl10, had only access to one strike and didn't even get close to fully upgrading the sub class not to mention the sub class that unlocks at 15 and 3 different classes. Also you can't exclude the MP since it's part of the game. And the uproar is rather small there aren't that many people complaining. And some of that uproar comes from people who Love Titanfall, a game they payed full price for that has no story mode and very limited content.
Awesome,,,can't wait for the full game.
Wasn't really into Destiny from the start but the Beta changed my entire perception. Immediately put in a pre order after the beta was over. The guardians shall unite come September the 9th.
September 9-th can't come soon enough. I need this game so badly.
4.6 millions on all console! but not together :| anyway I was one of them and still can wait for 9th!
At anyone time there where only 16 players together in the worold instance. I really hope Bungie increase the player cap to like 64 or something for the full release.
yeah i dont think i ever had so much fun with a beta, or ever had so much fun playing the missions over and over and never got bored.
I can't wait.. I was among the 90% or so who loved the beta and will play this game upon launch. Sep 9th can't come soon enough.
Them are some good fake statistics. Let's just make up facts because that is what you believe.
just 41 more days till Bungie drops this awesome GOTY on us
across 4 consoles!?? it better!!!
Playing the beta solidified my intention to buy Destiny on day one! I had a TON of fun...and can't understand a lot of the criticism that others are heaping on the game! I thought Dinklage did a great job as the voice of the "Ghost" (better in the beta than the alpha!) and I enjoyed the gameplay and the mechanics. I also liked how you would randomly come across other players. If you didn't want to interact with them, you didn't have to, but the extra help is DEFINITELY welcome on a few of those missions! Anyway, the beta left me wanting more...and more I will have, at 12:01am on Sept. 9th! BTW, wasn't EA's "Battlefield 4" the largest console beta? Sure they CALLED it a retail release...but it was pretty much beta until the last few updates! :)
I wonder how many of those will transfer to sales? And will they release a breakdown of users per console? Just interested.
