Hey Guys.

Just in case you didn't no, if you pre order this (360,PS3,Xbox One, PS4) and order from a selected retailer you can play the BETA sometime next year.

I got an email from Game earlier & preordered. If I don't like the beta, I'll just cancel my preorder.

54.99 is a tad steep. Also there's no idea of knowing the differences between PS3/4 at this stage. I'll wait.

Game don't charge for preorders until they're dispatched.

I wasn't charged anything but it did ask if I wanted to use reward points towards my purchase & I clicked yes so maybe the pound came off them but I can't see it

No wasn't charge anything and it does say the card will be charged prior to dispatch.

Just waiting on my beta code!

Amazon also doing the pre order BETA entry to, and they definitely don't charge you until they dispatch.

They will have allocated only a certain number of codes because the Beta will only use a certain number of servers, I guess.

Incidentally once you get the code you then have to register with Bungie's website, link your PSN/XBL account with them, enter the code, then you'll be on the list.

Don't get the code and just wait til the spring!

I contacted Game and they have said the codes will be sent out near the time of Beta testing.

"Customers who have previously preordered Destiny on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 will also receive the beta access. Your beta access code and redemption instructions will be emailed nearer the time of the beta launch, scheduled for early 2014"

Not ideal when its limited numbers and Amazon are sending theirs out already. Should be ok though, so will just wait.

Mine is for X1 but presume PS4 is just the same

Game just say the code will be sent nearer the time of the beta launch, so it could be months!


Edit: just seen the post above

Yup, i got my code a few weeks ago from Amazon, but only remembered to do it today.

You just enter your code to reserve your spot, and choose your platform next year.

I really do like the look of this game on PS4.

Destiny has been given a release date of 9th September 2014.

Still no preorder code! Going to cancel & preorder again to see if that triggers it.

ShopTo also give out codes and you get it instantly. I'm sort of scared though - you have to click "Click Here to Activate" or something, so I'm anxious about it making your preorder uncancelable. Anyone had any experience with this?

I'll probably change my preorder if anyone offers any cool preorder bonuses
