Destiny’s PlayStation-Exclusive Content Detailed

By Sid Shuman: "During last week’s PlayStation E3 2014 Press Conference, you might remember the illustrious Adam Boyes noting that PlayStation owners were set to receive a ton of exclusive Destiny content — literally too much to detail in the show itself. Now that the E3 hubbub has died down, I asked Bungie and the PlayStation elders to share those details right here on PlayStation.Blog for the first time"

Maybe, but that is quite a lot of content, I was expecting 1 multiplayer map, or the usual "60 mins" of gameplay thing.

ZodTheRipper1589d ago

There's a reason they call it "best place to play"... ;D

tbone5671589d ago

It's timed. Coming to xbox one later.

UltimateMaster1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

I doubt it's timed, I could be wrong.
If it is timed, then other platforms might need to pay for it as DLC.
I'd be a waste of money otherwise.

@UltimateMaster

"At launch, PS4 and PS3 owners will get exclusive access "

It's clearly timed, and with Bungie they like to give things to their fans, so they wont make it paid dlc.

UltraNova1588d ago

Its timed of course. It will be for at least 6 months then the ps4 redeem code for that content will expire. Then it will be available as paid DLC for both consoles.

Something right in line with AC4 and PS's 60 min exclusive gameplay (redeem codes expired April 2014), although I m not sure if its available on Xbox just yet.

BallsEye1588d ago

It's quite a bit of content and of course it's timed. Just like COD and Division stuff on Xbox One. Funny how fanboys downvote anyone who says it's timed.

DonMingos1588d ago

And the game itself is exclusive to playstation platforms in Japan

Kidmyst1588d ago

I didn't get into the Alpha but it makes me want the game more.

Edit: never mind it actually is timed exclusive, my mistake :/

gaffyh1589d ago

But it's free timed exclusive, they might charge for all this stuff on other platforms, you don't know.

Magicite1589d ago

Ive a feeling this game will move even more PS4 units than Watch Dogs did.

ZodTheRipper1589d ago

Yep because it's much more interesting and expansive than Watch Dogs. People will use this as an entry into next gen.

Docknoss1589d ago

I got three friends waiting to get xbox's just for this game. I told them that the PS4 gets timed content, but they want Titanfall too. So this goes both ways.

Infamous2981588d ago

White Ps4 destiny bundle is selling like hotcakes on amazon!!

Dlacy13g1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

Timed exclusive or not ...in a game as big and ambitious as this seemingly is, this kind of content is pretty meaningless. You most likely will have better stuff with in the first few hours of gameplay and you can bet that map will be a paid for map on other versions.

poor_cus_of_games1588d ago

The ships and items maybe but you can't beat the free coop mission and multi player map.

corvusmd1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

They already confirmed that it is..now I admit I don't know if that's ALL of that content, but they did say it was timed.

Honestly this DLC isn't enough to make me get it for PS4 even if it wasn't timed. It's an online game, I'll play it on XBL...esp since I'm out of town and can't play the ALpha, but hearing that there are super long wait times to play a match. (could just be an Alpha issue..)

No matter what, this game in general appears to be the real deal, and I'm sure no matter what system you get it on, it'll be a blast.

IVIEDICATED1589d ago

You're right DLC is subjective value wise but playing the BEST version AND getting the DLC is enough to sway people to buy the PS4 over the X1.

poor_cus_of_games1588d ago

I've been playing the alpha a lot and have never ever had to wait any longer than 20 seconds max for a match.

DonMingos1588d ago

@corvusmod
"this DLC isn't enough to make me get it for PS4"

I believe you would need to have a PS4 to be able to get this game on PS4.

So my guess is that was never an option to you.

showtimefolks1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

good buying a ps4 version anyway so can't complain about free exclusive content. Also some of you xbox fans have no problem when you guys get so much early DLC but have a problem with us playstation fans getting some timed exclusive dlc

stop complaining you will get it in 30 or 60 days. You may have to pay for it(which sucks)

to me it doesn't matter if this content go to xbox after limited time, why should it matter to me if others get to enjoy it. In this invisible war of fanboys people just love the word exclusive

coming out of E3 it was all about exclusive this and exclusive that, when most of the biggest IP's belong to 3rd party publishers.

why should it matter to anyone about timed exclusive stuff going to other gamers whop also paid $60 plus tax.

fanboys have made every site not fun, majority of the comments are trolling, i liked N4G more when there was a open zone for trolls and normal conversations could continue in comments sections

Deadpoolio1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

Doubt that it's timed much like 99% of ALL exclusive PS DLC that NEVER goes anywhere. Sony doesn't pay for timed DLC unlike some other companies

Watch it cost like $10 on Xbone. I really hate these timed or exclusive content crap

If you get disagrees, talk about denial because it is quite apparent in that promo.

coolbeans1589d ago

Yeah, it's a fad that needs to go away. Doubtful that'll happen when crowds still cheer when that news is announced.

Mikelarry1589d ago

you and me both

but from a console maker point i get it that you if its releasing on the competition console you have to make your version sounds more exciting... still HATE IT THO

Phene1589d ago

Either way, how long are u really gonna play with those items before moving on to bigger and better? ...the real content is the map and even then weak. Loving the game so far, got bland once I capped out but that's where the full version comes into play

rdgneoz31589d ago

Yep, those are most likely going to be starting gear / strike, to help you a bit from the start. You can come back and play it (the strike) later, but the gear will probably be only good for alts. Only thing that will be worth it in the long run is the pvp map, and xbone players just have to wait a bit to try it.

And as for bland at cap so far, it's the starting planet... The story mission is level 3 and the strike is lvl 6. Hell, you have only 1 of the 3 subclasses for your class can use (right next to subclass, it has space for 2 others to be switched to). The real game starts at 20 when you'll be focusing on gear instead of leveling.

Phene1588d ago

Hmm I didn't really notice this subclass thing ...I created characters for all 3 classes, guess I wasn't paying attention. Gotta turn on the alpha again and check it out ..what can u switch to exactly for Hunter for example? You just got me excited again for the game

joab7771589d ago

It is either timed or will be offered in a store. There has to be microtransactions in this game...has to be. Its an mmo through and through...minus the chat box which is sorely needed.

But...it is a ton of real content. If I owned both consoles, this would be more than enough to make me buy it for the ps4...though unless xbone had a ton of free content...straight up I would buy it for the ps4 anyway.

For an alpha, hell for a demo or the beginning of a gold game, destiny is impressive and very addictive. I will b playing this at 12am when it drops...and then for a long time.

ats19921589d ago

Its timed exclusive its already confirmed.
