Prices for Destiny are already dropping for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases of Destiny at several retailers.
Wow! a $0.99 savings on the PS4 Destiny bundle!
i should have waited damnit
Yeah, cause it's crap and they know it, that's why they don't want websites to review it. They figure if people don't know it's crap yet, they can at least cash in at launch. I hope this backfires on their ass.
IDK im having a lot of fun. Its a great game with a lot of potential for future content
Mr bubbles. Are you seriously that negative? So you're saying bungie doesn't want people to know it's a bad game yet they had one of the largest open betas in console history. I respect your opinion but at least try to compose it intelligently.
@Mr Bubbles If you don't stop being so negative, soon you'll be Mr Bubble. XD It's a good game whether you like it or not.
@mr. Bubbles How can you say that knowing nothing about it? And don't tell me because you played the beta. I've personally never played a game that blends multiplayer and campaign together so well, I find myself jumping back and forth constantly. I can understand you hating Activision but dont hate the game.
@ the people replying to Mr Bubbles Come on, don't feed obvious trolls. Destiny is a social game and I am pretty sure anyone who has actually played it can understand why they wanted to wait for a sizable amount of people to be on. I mean, you figure there would be what, 200 - 400 reviewers playing this game tops? Imagine how hard it would be to find 3 people looking to raid, especially a high level one like the vanguard playlist (the 18+ ones).
Say it isn't so!!!
lol... I will check back when its more than dollar value menu savings.
^^^ What an unsatisfied and ungrateful bad person you are! What one whole dollar aint enough for you?? Shame on you!
Destiny and a candy bar.
BUT Spicy mcchicken!
LMAO, it's not bad, but they had a Jalapeno McChicken for a limited time in California that had a Jalapeno Relish on it, and Oooooo it was so good :D
It looks messy, but mmmm it was sooooooo good http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-b...
The King rules...
the game wont survive long. play the shit outta it for the first 2 months, then move on.
2 months gameplay out of a single non subscription based game? that sounds like incredible value to me.
They will add on content as well, paid and maybe( big maybe) free content. It's not a bad first entry imo, and I'm not a big shooter guy to say the least.
I've been really enjoying it, but I don't expect to still be playing it after October, too many other games coming out. I may get the DLC if I'm bored one day.
That's it, returning game and burning PS4. I'm mad about that 99c.
God dam it I got mine for 98 cent off the bundle. If I had of waiting I might still be rich.
This game is so much fun... played the Alpha and Beta... and the final product is so much better... the Story mode gets really interesting once you get to the moon and beyond... so glad this game is out... perfect mix of shooter and rpg/mmo goodness... can't expect a true review of this for a month or so... great so far with my level 12 hunter 8)
Whatever it takes to get hits on their crappy website.
Is this even news worthy? its how they get you when its through shipping, they charge you extra... nothing new.
would love to see someone price match hahaha
Its cheaper than most games in store right now. Its also in stock, which is weird as Diablo 3 has been sold out most places for ages. I guess they just ordered in wayyyyy too many Destinys and not enough Diablos.
Not that i don't love Diablo 3, because i do. But its not sold out anywhere in my town.
I live in Southampton, UK and it was literally sold out everywhere except one supermarket. During my shopping yesterday I noticed it was still sold out in my local. They must of just really underestimated the sales. Often the less hyped games are out of stock here. Wolfenstein was for weeks.
I was trying to get my cousin to get it, and he went to 5 different stores and kept saying they were sold out. I thought he was lying until he sent me pictures and then ended up getting the last copy at another store. Honestly, I just think retailers underestimated the sales for Diablo.
They probably got a handful of copies each in your area. Same shit happened for dragons dogma dark arisen. each store in my area got 1 copy only.
Just bought mine here in UK tescos fir £40 Game wanted £50 PSN £55 great saving
Was that game online? because I went in the store and it was 54.99 what a absolute joke. trusty amazon to the rescue when I get back of hols me thinks
No was in store but that could been £55 as my girlfreind ran in for me.
I can't believe the price is dropping already. Not enough demand? I think I'm going to tell my girl that I don't want the game anymore. Sounds like a sort of flop if the price drops this fast if you ask me
It's a great game well worth the $59.99 retail, wait till the numbers come and you will see that it has broken some sales records, as it should have. Unless your a fanboy that is mad because his or her console was not the main focus even though the company (Microsoft) has made many deals like this in the past. Not saying you are but this game is getting a lot of negative reaction just because of it's deal with Sony. There was a beta with a lot of people playing , liking and purchasing the game. They probably put it on sale so that the sales numbers are extremely high giving it a good foothold to become a regular series of games or expansions.
Man the game is selling like crazy, biggest new IP launch. It's definitely not a flop.
I played the beta, it wasn't bad. There's so many games coming out I don't know what I want to play first! And then when I do, there will probably only be 2 or so that keep my interest. That's why I'm debating on this one. I bought a lot of games that weren't worth the price last gen. Just being more cautious this time around
The 50 and 55 price tags are just because the consoles are still new, the release day prices should drop to the regular £40 in time. 55 for the digital versions is just insane though. Someone must be paying those prices though otherwise they would never price them so high.
Was going to pikc it up earlier today, £54 at Game, no chance man. Guess I'll wait a while to get a copy, times like these make me wish I had Steam.
But Destiny isn't on steam...?
In the future my friend, in the future. Games are FAR to expensive these days, used to be a problem spending £40 on a brand new game, £54 is just ridiculous.. working class man here.
There was a steam leak implying it was coming. Bungie also said they wanted it on pc too but had too much to handle at the time. I'd say 3-6 months and it'll be on steam.
Download on psn? Xblive?
Amazon was 40 yesterday not sure today not checked
Digital Distribution sucks
You could buy it from Tesco Direct for £40 less £5 using code TDX-HQ9T This was the pre-order price a few days ago so I guess it's still the same (PS4 & X1)
Gameseek has it at 41.50 if that helpful.
25% pre-paid card at Target! I don't have a Target even near me, but a friend of mine picked up 3 $50 PSN cards for $112!
I bought mine in sainsburys for £45!! I dont understand why on psn is £55 when there is less cost to them!! They need to bring the digital prizes down or will still be cheaper buying a hard copy!
Yeah, i never understood it. People always saying digital is the future of gaming, yet on both xbox live and PSN, thw games are so expensive. The only time you get a deal is if the game u want judt happens to be on sale at the same time you get it. Otherwise, its expensive. Most times a lot more expensive than just going to Gamestop.
Because publishers know that many people will still pay full price for it. This is why I want playstation now to succeed
Try out game sharing with a VERY trustworthy friend all games cost us £20 each,gotta exchange gamertags and ms sign in password but now i got 10 more games to play free of charge,obviously if u fall out it could get tricky,hence why they gotta be trustworthy.
While it's true that digital games have no disc manufacturing or shipping costs associated with them, someone has to pay for the bandwidth that is used when downloading the game. That bandwidth might be used multiple times over the course of the console generation too because of redownloading.
I bought it from Tescos for £35 on PS4. I wouldn't of paid anymore for it. They should be ashamed of the current digital price!
You overpaid 30 quid son. This game is not worth 35gbp.
From the looks of it, the game is not what it was advertised to be and has been getting bad user reviews left and right. I called this as soon as I heard feed back from the beta. Damn shame, this game has a lot of potential. It will more than likely reach some of that potential but not until Destiny 2 releases.
Stay off the internet and enjoy the game. You'll have a blast.
Never will there be a game everybody likes, but making a judgement based on internet judgements or statements seems silly. I am enjoying the game but I never really read to many previews , played beta etc so maybe my expectations were based in reality. Make your own decision would be my advice.
I base games off of how I feel personally after playing of course. I have yet to play Destiny. I'm not saying the game is bad from my own experience but I am relating what I have been seeing and reading...I will have to play it first in order to make a final judgement. I still confidently stick by what I wrote before on this site and above - Destiny is not going to reach the expectations or it's potential until a few DLC's/expansions release or worst case scenario, Destiny 2. You could blame hype and crazy built up expectations sure, then again at the end of the day a lot of gamers feel the game is not what it was advertized to be from the door. This is the reason I will wait at least 6 months to check the game out. Hopefully by then some of the kinks are worked out via patches and there will be a few dlcs out/more content, hell I may wait til the inevitable GOTY/Ultimate edition releases...Seems the safe route to take with this one IMO.
*ETA* $20 per DLC is one way of milking the shit out of Destiny and sadly is looking like the only way gamers will get the content they originally thought they were getting on release. I think it is pretty obvious with Activision at the helm this is exactly what is going to happen/happened. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if I were to find out down the road that they stripped content to sell later as DLC. Damn shame. No thanks, I'll wait til it's on sale with most or all the DLC at a fair price.
Price dropp already? Is it that gamers are telling other gamers dont buy it, not as good as thiy said it was???
It's not dropping!!! Just buy.com is all, I'm sure they bought a truck that's been wreak or something like that for them to sell game this cheap so soon
Got it for 60 plus 40 back in store credit at Kmart.
I didn't know Kmart still existed. They've been out of business for some time near me.
49.99$ for destiny on day1 isnt bad.
Has the author ever heard of proof reading? Probably not because he's a games journalist.
