Anyone happen to have an extra beta code they are willing to part with? I've been resisting the urge to preorder as I plan to buy the digital version of this game.

You should be able to get a download code from someone when they are handed out. Since everyone will be given multiple download codes once the beta starts.

Yes. I just started downloading. At 2% it said it was ready to start. So I just launched it.

EDIT: So now it's on a screen with changing backgrounds saying it's installing. And it's downloading slow. At only around 5Mb/s.

Well at least the download speeded up. It's maxing out my internet download speed at 85Mb/s. I really wish I still had the 150Mb/s tier on FiOS. I could really use it at times like this when I need to download to multiple game systems.

Thanks all for the advanced notice...

I should have plenty of extra codes if needed after switching from PS4 and doubling up my preorder on X1.

Fyi - I'm at least 1 hour in on the X1 beta download and it's only at 52%. Sucks to try this at prime time but still grateful for the early release. Thanks Bungie! Nice way to show some love for how you got here.

I got up to level three. But then I went to check on the other XBOne and it logged me in which logged me out of my main XBOne. SO then a message came up on Destiny about something being changed. So I logged back in and then it kept saying something about stabilizing the party where you select the destination. I tried it on both machines several times over 1.5 hours and the same results. It would not let me go further because it kept show that stabilizing message. SO I'll check it again tomorrow.

Thanks as well for the early heads up. Wonder if Xbox wanted to avoid the problems PSN experienced last week. Or if Bungie was being nice to MS this week...
Played to level 2. I was able to get my ship and fly to the city. Decided to stop there after the hour and a half DL. Hope to level up and get in on some multiplayer.

Have fun

Made it to level 4 last night. I had about 20 hrs on the PS4 beta last week and I can honestly say the two play exactly the same. Load times seemed equal.The PS4 look slightly better, but I believe that is due to the XB1 beta being 720p vs PS4 being 1080p. That is supposed to be leveled out by release time. In the PS4 thread, they are commenting about how the PS3 vs PS4 graphics are very similar, so we have to remember that the visuals are turned down to accomodate the lowest common denominator, which is the last gen systems. I dont think we should be expecting major differences between versions, a la COD/BF4. I think if anything you should be choosing the platform where your friends are and the place with the most stable online component.

Since I had a buddy playing with me, we decided to do the Hard mission for Level 3 story. Big mistake unless you have some shotguns, we both had snipers. The Wizard part was killing us. Switched to Normal and breezed right through. Hoping to get to L6 to open up Crucible tonight and really see how XBL matchmaking factors into better opponents, faster times between rounds, etc. I was getting destroyed by good players on the PS4 side.

It loaded faster on my XBOnes. But I'm using SSDs on those while my PS4 has a 7200 rpm drive. But there was a very noticeable reduction in the load times. I also noticed the less detail on the XBOne. But that is expected since the XBOne beta is running at 900P.

Do you mean loaded as in the initial install? That definitely was faster, about 30 mins on the XB1 compared to 3+ hrs on the PS4, but that is about the norm for all PSN vs XBL downloads going back to last generation. (Im ethernet on all 4 systems, no wifi for me, 50/50 Fios)

For load times between levels (ship scenes) those seemed the same. I will try to test that out. Thanks for the correction about 900p, I knew it wasnt running at 1080p.

Load times between levels were faster. But I guess should time it on the XBOne and PS4.

Played for about an hour last night, got to the ship after the "training" level. made it to the tower then went to orbit to do the first mission in old russia. Seems ok so far, I assume the further in you get the more of an open world you get to explore, becuase so far its just linear missions.

One thing that was pretty annoying was the first mission after the tower there are 3 groups of Fallen in the outside area where you first land and they endlessly respawn if you travel a small distance away from them. I would literlly walk over to the crashed spacehsip, kill the 3 guys there, then walk back to the middle area not 20 yards away and three new guys would respawn there, rinse and repeat....I guess it's good for level grinding your character.... but its still rather frustrating.
