MP1st - According to the console’s online store, Xbox One users may be able to pre-purchase and pre-download Bungie’s upcoming shooter, Destiny, before its September 9 release.
I am hoping this will be a test for the early update preview users for Octobers update. Is it really only 18GB? Figured it would be twice that.
I'm at 96% used hahahaha. I have 3 choices in a few weeks...... 1) Keep my Destiny PS4 bundle pre order at amazon 2) Order the white 4tb Western Digital external hard drive for my XB1 http://www.amazon.com/Cloud... 3) Erase a few games on my xbox one, in order to make room for Destiny digital. Uggghhhh! I have a week and a half to decide, because I'm selling my PS4 copy of Destiny that's included with the white console.
Buy a 1TB touro pro to get space and hasten load times, due to 7200 rpm.
Hugo, I have one of those cloud drives. They don't have USB cable connections as they plug directly into a router. I just checked yours and it looks to be the same. Be careful with cloud drives if your looking to plug directly in to X1.
Hugo, for external, I went with the Seagate 2TB for 79.99 and it works wonders.
@gamertk421 I could use increased load times. Considering 75% of my games are digital. With the exception of Sniper Elite, Watch Dogs, and sports titles. I've decided to follow your advice, and I'm choosing the gold drive for $69. My gamertag and PSN ID is GOLDFINGER, so I guess that drive will suit me lol. http://www.newegg.com/Produ... @Godz Kastro I was wondering if those cloud drives would be an issue. You may be right, probably best to avoid those drives. @JeffGUNZ I'll look into that now as well. Thanks for the replies everyone.
Wish they would've said something about this awhile back.
Okay so do you get the vanguard armoury if preload the standard edition or do you have to get the digital guardian edition?
It comes with the standard edition, it shows the preorder incentive on the game page.
So glad this has finally come to Xbox One! I was getting tired of waiting until 2am to download a game just to wait another 30mins to 1 hour just to play.
Stay on the side of caution. This was most likely added as a mistake. This happened with Titanfall too and MS then later on the same day said that was added by error. The only way I see this happening is if it's open for xbox update early preview members, which I am apart of. Still no word on when the october preview update will be released, but perhaps destiny will be the trial for their pre-load? http://www.ign.com/articles...
But you can preload madden via xbox.com?
Didn't they just do this with Madden 2015 or was it just to preorder it?
You could preload madden this week, I'm sure they will do the same with destiny then
I stand corrected. I remember at E3 they stated Fifa or Forza would be the first. Surprised they are a month ahead of schedule. You think they would have officially announced this.
Glad to hear, dunno if I'm being stupid or they've temporarily disabled it but can't seem to find how to actually prepurchase it nor can I find the price.
It's usually up to the company like MS or Sony, but sometimes it can be a week before launch, a few days, or even a day before when you can preload it. I guess we just have to keep checking back daily to see. I am mad that it will be 12:01 PST considering I live on the east coast. I am not waiting for 3:01 am to play this game. I'll pre-load it so I can wake up early, already took a personal day, and will wake up to it fully loaded on my Xbox One. Man, I hope this is true and I can't wait!
So for North Americans, standardized time release? Ouch that's pretty rough and a little unfair.
PS4 does it the same way with pre-loads. I looked at Destiny on the PS4 store a couple nights ago and it says the exact same thing. Midnight PST, so 3/4 of the United States could get access to the game faster by buying a physical disc at a midnight launch. I don't understand why Sony and MS aren't trying harder to make digital more appealing. It makes no sense to hold it back like that.
One company in particular tried to make it more appealing, that didn't go over well with some people... Not me though
Bungee said that as long as it's 12:01 somewhere in the world, everyone can play. I don't recall if they said only on playstation, though. It was an article on here. I'll see if I can find it.
^^^ They were referring to those with actual game discs.
Sucks for us in East US. It does not unlock until 3:01AM, oh well I am buying physical.
