Bungie teases Destiny preorder bonuses

...

by

Bungie Studios has teased that not only will there be preorder bonuses for shared-world shooter Destiny, but they could be unveiled shortly.

Asked in the latest (and potentially final) Mail Sack if there will be different preorder bonuses for Destiny, the studio said, "There most certainly will be. We'll tell you all about them before you even have the chance to ask again."

"You may want to turn your gaze to the stars. We've been busy. Stay tuned."

Destiny--which requires an Internet connection--is currently in development for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. The game will be released in 2014 published by Activision Publishing.

Last week, Bungie Studios design director Joseph Staten--who co-created the Destiny universe--left the company after 15 years.

Bungie Studios will release a new gameplay trailer for Destiny tomorrow, October 1. The trailer will be set in a destination that fans have been asking to see for the first time, community manager "Deej" said.

"We'll also have some exciting announcements if you're looking to suit up and explore our new frontier. Stay tuned!"

I don't understand why the PC is getting the shaft here. If Destiny is an always online game, piracy will be far less if not null. Activision have almost always published games that were on PC, so I don't think they're pulling any strings here either. I have no problem with consoles. But it is really depressing to invest so much time and money into a particular device, only to have some of your favorite games not to be released on it when there's clearly a market for it. 

Consoles experience this too with exclusive titles. But we're not even talking about an exclusive here, we are talking about a big-business-multiplat. Sure I want to boldy go into the stars Per Auduacia ad Astra style, but I don't know if it's worth paying $460+ just to play it at launch.

Could preorder bonuses please be declared by the pope to be satanical sins? CAuse they deserve to be in  lowest abyss of hell. This preorder exploitation based on many times lies bullshots and fake promises is EVIL

"Of course there'll be pre-order bonuses. We really, really want people to buy our game really, really bad and we'd just love to incentivise and reward saps who don't wait for reviews!"

One of the many games on my radar right now. I just wish it wasn't so far away. This seems like it's going to be a lot of fun to play with friends.

I just hope the preorder bonuses won't be retailer-exclusives. I hate those.

Does anybody know if you'll be able to transfer your destiny character from like the 360 to the XB1?

I can't imagine they would announce pre-order bonuses more than 6 months before release.  So if bonus announcements are coming soon, could we be getting destiny in Spring 2014?

Can you just give me the game? I want to play. Don't care about bonuses for MMOs. I like building from the ground up so just put the game in front of me and back away

Pre-orders are dumb! and you can get games digitally now I don't want to go to freaking Gamestop that place sucks. It takes 30 mins to get anything in that store.

@Noonewarrior it will likely be possible since you can transfer all your data anyway right now if you get a new 360, just have to download your stuff from their fancy cloud.

@DramacydalN3D the statement in the article that said you need an internet connection to play this is false, you can play it solo if you want too.

@RELeon @Noonewarrior @kidflash2000 Your luck sucks, I've had 2 XBOX's also, however buying both consoles didn't even amount to $1000 since 360 was released in 2005 that was 8 years worth of playing and its still going strong, MY PC however Iv'e spent upwards of $5k plus on the PC and upgrades for performance and graphics. since I bought it HDD,Motherboard shat itself and Graphics card had to be upgraded.

@Noonewarrior @RELeon @kidflash2000 I have been upgrading my PC for about 12 years now and have not spent $5000 on it, so I dunno about that. And I have had 2 Xbox's that have red ring'd and a 360 that just stopped working one day. So reliable, not so much.

@RELeon @kidflash2000 Problem with PC's is that to get 8-10 years out of one you need to buy a $5000+PC, Not to mention how long it takes to load a game onto one! Yea I agree Performance and Graphics can be significantly better than consoles I AGREE THAT, however reliability Is where the console market excels.

@kidflash2000 The difference is once you buy a console, thats it. A PC CAN be upgraded and improved upon to always run better than a console can. Consoles are cost effective, PC's are performance effective. Its all based on preference.

@blacksheperd i bet you are playing on Medium quality at best, and that you probably spent upwards of a grand when you did upgrade it, the price is unjustified when you look at it like that

@feared4power Only if your dumb youd upgrade every month. I havent spent a dime for the past 4-6 years. My PC can still run games better than any console out there. Possibly better than the next gen consoles as well...they I might need to buy and upgrade soon....we'll see. So yea this is a weird and ignorant statement.

@RELeon @feared4power Im all for playing games on my PC but dude, i couldnt play crap on an 8 year old PC and im still playing great games on my 8 year old PS3. GTA V looks pretty dang good too.

I recently had to buy a new PC because my 3 year old machine couldnt run anything new. I could upgrade my video card anymore and it was just obsolete.

So, maybe PC's are more powerful when new but they dont last nearly as long as a game console.....not to mention, my PC cost 3 times what my PS3 cost.

I think you are being a bit myopic.

@feared4power Better than upgrading every couple of years to another console that only sucks slightly less than the previous version.

Yeah upgrading every month on perfection makes sense.
