How the tables have turned. Bungie got its household name by making it huge with a little Xbox launch title called Halo, and now it is jumping over to Sony by delivering its game to them first. Destiny will playable first by Sony fans in a beta available on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
To sign up for the beta, all you have to do is pre-order Destiny for either Sony console at any local retailer, and the beta code should come with the pre-order receipt. Enter the code at Bungie’s website, and you will be all set to go.
Fans who pre-ordered before Oct. 1 will automatically qualify. From then on, registration will be a crap shoot.
No telling when the Xbox 360 or Xbox One beta tests will begin, but no doubt they will happen before the game launches.
