So how did it look on the 360? I wasn't impressed with how the game looks on X1 or PS4, so I would guess that the last-gen versions hold up pretty well.

I had fun with the beta, and I'm definitely looking forward to the final version. My only concern is with the mission structure. All story missions in the beta followed a similar pattern (find a couple of checkpoints, finish off with a semi-challenging battle). I'm hoping there is more variety in the final cut.

I played as Hunter on the PS4 and Titan on the XBOne. I think playing as a Titan was part of the reason I liked it better on the XBOne.

It looked like ass to me on the 360. The PS4 was the best looking and the XBOne had a slightlly lower resolution which was noticeable to me. But when I tried it on my 360, woof. There seemed to be a huge downgrade in resolution. Everything looked blurry to me.

So, my final thoughts of the BETA experience.

- The more I played the more fun I had. Missions and enemies continued to become more interesting and challenging. Finding new wrinkles in game design and presentation was impressive.
- I liked the challenge. It wasn't super easy and yet not impossible either.
- Loot drops increased the more I played. Still not on par with Borderlands. I hated the loot system at first, now I consider it decent but still not to my liking.
- The persistent world is cool. I liked seeing another player get surrounded and helping him/her out by sniping enemies across the map.
- Still not impressed with the graphics. Good but not great.
- The Tower needs to be improved to avoid being nothing more than a glorified Citadel from ME1. Feels very dated in design and purpose.

All in all, still a day 1 purchase. Part of that is because I am really looking forward to exploring all of the content. Part of that is because there is still such a lousy catalogue on the ONE and I need something new to play.

Agree 100%. PS4 looked best, XB1 slightly behind, 360 was a major downgrade. Blurry, tons of pop-in when sprinting, especially if your in your speeder. Crucible seemed to be about the same as far as gameplay, but the graphics hurt the eyes. My buddy who only has 360 and is too cheap to jump in says it didnt look that bad to him though. I think we are just spoiled by next-gen-ness.

That was brought up in our interview/play-through with Bungie Community Staff member Deej. One of the questions was if the character could transfer between platforms, and the answer was no, but he did say that transfer was available within ecosystems...(A la' 360/One and PS3/4).

Video, here: (He was very gracious, and spent much longer than anticipated...kinda long and is in two parts., but very informative, and much fun.) http://www.twitch.tv/2old2play/c/4754804 and here: http://www.twitch.tv/2old2play/c/4754821

I noticed on the beta, when i loaded Destiny on my 360 that it had my level 8 character, from my XBOne, there for me to use.

Definitely enjoyed the couple missions I played on the beta and will be downloading this game when its available. Just installed my portable HD so I’m all in on the XBONE.

This one has major potential, maybe not realized at first, not unlike the Mass Effect series.
If unsure, simply don't go digital only.
This will be in high demand for awhile.

Is it mostly co-op or multiplayer? I was impressed w/ the beta, but if there's a ton of co-op DLC I'm in. Just have to decide on the 360 or One version...

Can you lock out co-op? I only played it for an hour, but I hear that it can throw randoms in with you.

I know the final mission of the beta joined me with a couple of other people. It would have been impossible to get through by myself and very difficult with just two people. With three people it was still work but doable.

Anyone interested in starting a new AVS clan for this game? With the announcement that raids will be pre-made groups only, may be nice to have a way to join up with other AVSers to play in these. Any ideas on a good clan name?

Gotta love trading in 3 games and paying off Destiny and the Expansion Pass entirely. Went with a buddy of mine to trade in some stuff toward Destiny at GameStop, with his 10% extra and a 50% more deal, got $41.25 for GTA V, $33 for Dead Rising 3, and $24.75 for Ryse. Considering I got GTA for free, and DR3 and Ryse for $20 each from GameFly, think I came out pretty good. Especially since all 3 of those are hitting PC in the next couple months and I'll snag them there.

Now just have to kill 3 weeks until Destiny, thank god for Planetside 2


NOTE: the 50% extra is supposed to run from the 25th to the 31st, but the guy did it for us last night anyway, just a heads up

Heckuva deal there, always a good feeling. Now hopefully I can pre-order the digital versions for both the One/360!

Any digital loving for this game yet? I keep checking but do not see any bundles or anyone selling this yet. Pretty disappointed this is not one of the game being pushed on Digital format.

All Xbox One games will have a download version (unless they require a peripheral sold with the game), including Destiny (as per the Xbox One DD FAQ). There are no DD pre-orders yet; they're supposedly working on it. They do have sell-by-code working for a limited set of games, so there's hope.

No DD pre-orders yet? I hope they get it working before Forza Horizon 2 comes out. For Destiny I pre-ordered on the PS4. I was considering getting it for the XBOne too but there are alot of games coming out during the next few months I want to get so time will be limited. But I still might get Destiny on the XBOne if it's one of those games I really love. The potential is there since I really liked the beta, but I won't know until I play the final game next month.

I'm pretty sure that digital pre-orders (w/pre-order bonuses) and sales of download codes by third party e-tailers were implemented by Sony for PS3 over a year ago. It's just stupid that MS doesn't have them yet (well they do have DD code sales going for a few titles).

That was only because it released on 360 significantly before on Xbox One, to get people to buy immediately instead of waiting for the Xbox One version. I don't think that anyone's done that since.

I think you're right. Too bad, though. Even at an extra $30 or so I'd probably still bite. Too many friends w/ different consoles LOL.
