BestBuy emailed me mine when I pre-ordered online. I think mine was sent within a week. But that was a month ago. At some point before launch I will cancel both of the pre-orders since I will be getting them digitally. I've actually already payed for the Digital Guardian version from PSN for my PS4. But they never sent me another beta code.

With PSN you can pre load it before the release day. But you can also buy the digital version on Amazon. I am just not sure how that works. Will the code only work for the release day or can you preload it like PSN.

Don't think so. I heard an article that the beta client is available on the EU PSN (?), but haven't confirmed. The beta I THINK won't be available to install probably until midnight on the 17th or whenever we get our codes, similar to alpha.

Hopefully we can download the client before the 17

As long as they have the bandwidth, I have no problem if I can't download until the 17th. I just don't want it downloading at a snails pace.

Curious to see how this is. Was there a lvl cap?

Also was it the standard loot drops from mobs like mmos? Money?

It was alpha. Loot and glimmer (money) was random but I doubt fully reflective of final release. In other words I occasionally got semi rare items.if you play in the crucible or online events, you get more opportunity for rare stuff.

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

Hmm not sure if I can start a poll, but I'm curious what class everyone plans to play/start with for beta and beyond. Coming out of the alpha I felt the warlock was borderline OP and felt like the best solo class, though hard to say what the end game will be be like.

If the class make up stays the same (and I opt to buy into the full game) I'd likely pick warlock to start, then titan, then scout if I am not burned out.

Everyone else?

Oh and it sorta treads on the PSN ID thread, but we should get a first page post of what time zone everyone is in to get some fire teams organized. I'm PST so all you west coasters lets link up.

Bungie has released a video for the new Destiny companion app for iOS and Android phones. According to the vid, they plan for us to start using the app for the Beta--all the features they describe in the video should be accessible through the Beta. Here's the original story (with the vid at the end.):

Quote:

DESTINY / 14 JUL 2014
DESTINY’S COMPANION APP IS ACTUALLY USEFUL — IGN FIRST

A few reasons why you’ll want to use Bungie’s second screen.
BY MARTY SLIVA
When the Destiny beta launches, your experience in Bungie’s massive universe is also going to exist outside the confines of your television in the form of Destiny’s companion app. What’s even more surprising is that the iOS, Android, and web application is actually useful.

One of the focuses of the companion app is to highlight your character and progression throughout the game, and really celebrate the growth of your Guardian. The app features fully-realized 3D models of each one of your characters, which will change in real time as you equip them with new weapons and armor. What’s even more interesting is that the changes you make to your character in the app are instantly reflected on your character in the actual game itself.

Given the RPG nature of Destiny, the app is there to help you keep track of all of the statistics, progression, missions, and bounties of your characters. You can thumb through your inventory, check out which vendors are currently occupying the Tower, and explore Destiny’s lore through the Grimoire. Throughout Destiny, you’ll unlock cards that delve a bit deeper into characters, locations, and events from Bungie’s universe. The Grimoire is your gateway into fully unraveling Destiny’s world and story.

The free app is going to be available on iOS, Android, and web when the beta hits, and you’ll be able to use it the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One versions of the game. One thing to note is that during the beta, the iOS version of the app will only be available on iPhones. By launch, players will be able to use a larger iPad version of the companion. Bungie says that a Windows Phone version is not planned.

Definitely interested in trying out this beta. Never been a Halo fan, but I do like loot, and I did spend a lot of time with the Borderlands games because they are just great co-op fun.

I am fully digital on PS4, so I guess I can try and do the pre-order and eventually cancel thing on Amazon.ca... hopefully the code arrives in time.

I CAN edit and reorganize the 1st post of this thread as an AVS "Destiny Meet-up" Thread if you guys want it (the advantage of being the threadstarter), but I CAN'T moderate it. It takes too much time. School starts for me in two weeks and I'll be doing a lot of classroom prep. (in addition to actually PLAYING the Beta ).

If someone wants to take on the responsibility of compiling the information into a nice, easy format then I can cut & paste it into the 1st post on a weekly basis on Tuesdays when I update the PS Store Thread.

Here is the info. we'll need for someone to be willing make sure members provide and then format in a nice easy table: AVS Name, PSN ID, (preferred) Destiny Class, and Timezone (& probably what Modes you play most--for example, I can see myself being a Strike Mode person, with a little PvP thrown in).

Any takers?

While I respect the amount of work and polish that has gone into this app. I don't see myself ever using it.

I got to test out the App when the Alpha was live. It's neat, but I also don't really see my self using it all that often as well.

I suppose that, if I forgot to turn in some bounty, I could do it from the App. But all the other stuff seems like it's great to show off your stuff. I don't really see a need to change gears when I'm not actually playing.

So I guess Beta is now live?

Edit: Sigh, it is not yet. As of 2 AM CST at least. I got excited when the Destiny facebook page said "Beta launches in just a few short hours". That was pver 9 hours ago.

Guess my definition of "few" and "short" may not be the same as Bungie's :P

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

Pulled this from a Time magazine article:

When does it go live?

July 17, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. PT, though that’s only for PlayStation 3 and 4 owners, who have until a July 21 maintenance break to play.

So looks like 1pm eastern.
