I'm really sad that it's gone :(

See you in the Cosmodrome on September 9th!

Magnus7011731d ago

Not unless you have an Xbone

JoeIsMad1731d ago

Sure, I won't see YOU. I just meant the community in general. You know I'll be trolling those Bungie forums, and the Destiny app until then.

Chris_GTR11731d ago

technodrome, lets kick shell!

die_fiend1730d ago

Yeah thankfully I don't have an Xbone so won't be playing with the idiots who bought one.


andibandit1730d ago (Edited 1730d ago )

yeah you're making PS community look real good.

See you then! The beta literary ended right when I started figuring out whats so good about the game. There were somethings i wasn't so impressed by, but it was understandable, seeing as it is a mMMO(mini Massive Multiplayer Online), and it‘s not easy to accomplish in that genre.

Prime1571730d ago

That's how I felt too. It solidified my purchase, though. I'm picking up TLOU:RE for dirt cheap in the meanwhile to hold me off.

Metallox1731d ago

In my birthday, haha. Bungie is going to gift me something without wanting lol

JoeIsMad1731d ago

Halo: Reach released on my birthday. The title "Remember Reach" means something else to me. LOL.

Magicite1731d ago

Now what? Now we enjoy the summer! (and wait for Destiny launch I guess)

Chris_GTR11731d ago

now we play TLOU on ps4 :)

GordonKnight1730d ago (Edited 1730d ago )

Until then I'll be playing my Wii U.

Wii U>PS4>X1

I have all three and that's my opinion.


Exactly lol... The Last of Us will bring more than enough joy until Destiny hits shelves... That's easily a good enough game to kill a months time with... But the real question is how will I keep myself sane enough to go back and play in the mediocraty that is BF4 and UFC until the 30th... That's the real question.... Will I make it??? Tune in next week kids !

ThatOneGuyThere1730d ago

oh man, i played UFC twice...ugh. why did i go against my better judgement and buy that game? FML.

JsonHenry1730d ago

Glad I played the beta. I won't be buying this game after all. Too repetitive just like every other MMO. Makes me worry I will feel the same way about Division.

ThatOneGuyThere1730d ago

destiny isnt an MMO. its borderlands, without the annoying pointless walking bits and stronger multiplayer. Sure, its got RPG elements, but that doesnt make it an MMO.

JsonHenry1730d ago

Then I guess games where the only high population is in town centers like Neverwinter are not MMOs... /sarcasm.

Kidmyst1730d ago

I had fun with the BETA, I didn't do a whole lot of exploring since I'll wait for the retail version. had fun with the battles. Destiny felt like Borderlands had a 3 way with Skyrim and the Last of Us. I was hoping the ship had more usefulness and we could fly it or get into combat, but maybe that'll be a DLC later on.

MrChicagoWind1730d ago

Last of Us?! I could see Mass Effect tho.

BallsEye1730d ago (Edited 1730d ago )

No blown away by the game (it's just not that massive as they make it up to be...and where did the 500 million go?), but still had tons of fun with friends in the beta so getting it day one anyway. It is it's own thing. Definately something to keep me busy till MC Collection comes out!

ITPython1730d ago

I'll be finishing up Watch Dogs, only about half-way done with it and can probably stretch that out for a few weeks. Then I still have some things to do in MGS5, may pick up TLOU:RE if I can find it for $40 or so. Then I could replay some games like Knack, and of course there is the Infamous:SS DLC coming soon. Heck I even have games like Resogun, which I still have yet to play even though it's been ready and waiting for me since the day I got my PS4.

With these other games plus a summer vacation trip, I should be able to hold off until Sept 9th. But man when Destiny does come out, I will likely be tied up for quite a while, easily long enough for the next AC game and FC4 to get a major price drop.

I still can't believe it is over... the Destiny beta has been to kind to me. I have never played a beta that had only 5 hours of content, yet could hold my attention for over 80+ hours. Thank you Bungie.

JoeIsMad1731d ago

I don't think that I played 80 hours, but it was close.

OK, not so close. 40 hours, but it's a ton of hours over such a short time.

Sevir1731d ago

I clocked in at 47 hours... Absoluetely insane for a beta. I enjoyed it so much. I'll be all over this game come launch.

GamingSinceThe80s1731d ago

I put at least 40 into the titanfall beta.But when I bought the game maybe another 20 a back to GameStop it went.But I don't think that is going to happen with Destiny because there is way more to do in it.

I think it's the MP, it's been a while since I've played good multiplayer. Reminds me of Halo 2 days.

Jacktrauma1731d ago

Sucks that its over with for sure :( Cant wait to see whats in store for us at launch and beyond! So much packed into such a little beta, the game is gonna be every bit the definition of epic!

Nicominoru1731d ago

Was so salty they gave me a Legendary Hand Cannon that I couldn't equip till lvl 20 was my first time seeing a purple weapon class. Pre-ordered digitally for PS4, if I got work Sept 9 they can forget about it I'm calling off.

Now that it's over I've gone back to Mario Kart 8 lol.

Snookies121731d ago

How did you get something like that? The best thing I ever got playing was a blue level 10 shotgun. Even that seemed like an abnormality.

leemo191731d ago

The Iron Banner would give you a legendary hand cannon or a legendary ship if you were lucky enough to get it after the match.

KidBroSweets21731d ago

I got the same as nicominoru and so did my friend. I got it as a reward from completing a match in the crucible. Definitely threw all my stuff into the vault though just like in the alpha, in hopes that it would someway, somehow carry over even though I knew it wouldn't lol. Always worth the shot of trying though :P

Sevir1731d ago

Yep,The Iron Banner rewarded you with it. I've got one myself. But I absolutely hate hand cannons.

Snookies121731d ago (Edited 1731d ago )

Ah okay, I'm not big into PvP stuff, so that's why. I thought it was gotten as a drop or in a chest, lol.

@KidBroSweets2 - Haha, my friend and I did the same thing. We put all our stuff into the vault in some vain hope that it would carry over... XD

Nicominoru1731d ago

I got it as a reward in an Iron Banner match. I probably should have put it in the vault though just in case, but I didn't. Rest in Peace Legendary Hand Cannon you will be missed.

BionicRogue211731d ago

Really? I probably had 10-15 blue items in my vault when the Beta ended!

I've got a paid week off from work saved up and I'm taking 9 days off starting September 9th, stoked on this game!

HacSawJimThugin1731d ago

I got two of ship but damn it felt great getting them. Destiny has firmly placed it's hooks in me and I can't wait to take my Warlock into the unknown in September.

ShaqSoda1731d ago

For real, I don't know what to play now...

pwnsause_returns1731d ago

it was a load of fun. the multiplayer aspect of this game grabbed my attention for sure. better than most multiplayer games i've played so far this past year. its bungie after all, they know their stuff.

fenome1731d ago

I didn't even touch the Crucible, but I was hooked.
