Destiny PS4 Alpha Glitch Trolls Players Into Believing they Got the Full Game for Free

Games in their alpha testing phase have glitches. At times they’re frustrating, at times they’re funny, and at times they make you think you found some special loophole that doesn’t exist. This is the case with one surfaced on Destiny‘s public alpha, that made many believe they somehow received the full game for free.

you can pre order the game "for free" , Its like a trick , if you have a ps4 you can pre order destiny at anytime, then they WILL deduct 69.99$ 1 day before release. The trick is you get to play the beta on july 17 because you " Pre-Ordered" the game :P . I know this is wrong but im actually going to buy the game ^^ this is for the people who didnt get a chance to play the alpha . "Amazing alpha btw , loved the gameplay and it was extremely polished! You will have a blast"

I have to say the game is fantastic, It's a borderlands kind of game with halo mechanics and its amazing !

Too bad the Alfa is capped at lvl 8.

mattgdrums3390d ago

Perfect analogy of the game halo and borderlands combined, at first I thought this game wasn't special but you have to play it to see how good it is

serratos273390d ago (Edited 3390d ago )

That is exactly how I've been describing the game. It's taking both those games, built on top of an open world, and we get an amazing experience. I'm in love with even the Alpha, but I can't wait for the full game :D.

ABizzel13390d ago

I've been saying it looks like Halo meets Borderlands for the longest, and people were acting like that wasn't a good thing. Now that I'm playing it, it's exactly what I expected which is a good thing -_-

ShinMaster3390d ago

Some of the bosses have WAY TOO MUCH health.


It caps out at lvl 8? I found weapons and equipment at lvl 10 & 11 I was hoping to try out :(, even ran into lvl 20+ Fallen, who kicked my @$$ pretty hard. It was kind of funny, I was exploring one of the underground areas saw about 4-5 of them (lvl ???). Now, even catching them by surprise, throwing in grenades, and my special power, they all just turned around and lit me up like they were a firing squad.

And its those RPG elements that are exactly why I am loving it.

cyclindk3390d ago

I agree with the analogy, but never cared for the borderlands style enemy spawn mechanics.

Marcushazard3390d ago

Have we figured out I all our characters/levels/items will be transferred to the beta and full game? I've tried to find the answer, but to no avail.

White VITA1000, White PSPGO, White PS4 :-), I guess I'll buy the white Sony headset to differentiate it from my XB1 XO7 Turtle Beaches. Trust me, I've tried using my them playing Destiny Alpha yesterday, and they did not work :-(

mr2333390d ago

I can't speak for other stores, but iv'e cancelled preorders from Best Buy and Amazon with no problem. And they don't bill you for the game until its about to ship.

Debaitable3390d ago

Is it safe to say it's what I imagined Borderlands should have been? If so, Day 1!

ShinMaster3390d ago

How so? I like Borderlands' skill trees.

arkard3389d ago

I wouldn't count on it, I haven't been in a beta yet that transferred to the full version. It's not fair to give that advantage over people that's don't play till launch.

iiorestesii3389d ago

Its not that much like borderlands. More like mass effect. It takes elements from just about every FPS out there. It is aws.

GREAT games for free AWAITS.

Looking forward to Destiny.

blackout3390d ago

NOT A PS4 FAN AT ALL. But i bought the system cause this gen i will not mis out on any game coming that grabs my attention. So happy i woke up this morning and the alpha was there for the download. Have to say can't wait to play this on my x1, this game is going to be massive. Online, co-op. Xbox One & P4 forever. Enjoy gaming.

Rhezin3390d ago

LOL the mentality of some people. YOU'RE A FAN NOW since you bought a $400 system.

SpinalRemains1383390d ago (Edited 3390d ago )


He's saying he hadn't thought about owning one because he's not a fan. Destiny happens to be a system seller for him. If Destiny didn't attract him, he still wouldn't own a PS4. No?

He's a fan of Destiny and not so much PS4.

What's wrong with that?

Clown_Syndr0me3390d ago

Not really, Im not a huge fan of the PS4 but I own one and play it far more than my Xbox. Why? Because all my friends have one, and Im not going to miss out on playing with them.
I like the console, and the games just prefer my Xbox.

Gohadouken3390d ago (Edited 3390d ago )

But if he owns now , that makes him a fan , whatever the degree and the reasons .

You dont need to be a fanboy or specifically pro any camp to be a fan .

If true , he bought it for titles he can't miss ... isnt that the same than many people ?

Antnee5343390d ago

You know your a respectable X box fan u stated u didn't like ps4 in a civil manner. That's quite rare amongst the X box community, so thanks for being civil :)

Gohadouken3390d ago

You could have done without the "rare amongst the x box community" part . Those feuds start but assuming one camp of fan , is worse or better than the other

Boody-Bandit3390d ago

Personally I do feel one side is worse than the other.

StealthPandemic3390d ago

You're bad too. You're accusing someone. That can be said for anyone.

Blacksand13390d ago (Edited 3390d ago )

You could've waited for the X1 version. If you not a PS4 fan.

joab7773390d ago

The level 6 strike team mission is insane for a low level dungeon of sorts. If this is any indication of the full product, which it is, I am sold.

Now giv us a chat box so we can atleast shout to others.
