Destiny's PlayStation-Exclusive Content Shown Off In New Trailer

"The ultimate Destiny experience is only on PlayStation."

If you want the "ultimate" Destiny experience, you'll need to play on PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. That's the message Sony is trying to get across with a trailer released today that highlights the range of PlayStation-exclusive content for Bungie's upcoming shooter.

Destiny's PlayStation-exclusive content includes things like an entire multiplayer map (Exodus Blue), a Strike (Dust Palace), and various armor and weapons. You can see a complete breakdown of all the PlayStation-exclusive Destiny content on the PlayStation website.

Though Sony is calling the Destiny content "exclusive," that only really means "timed-exclusive," though the duration is indeed extensive. This content will be exclusive to PlayStation until at least fall 2015, at which point Xbox players will gain access to the items.

Despite Bungie's close alignment with PlayStation for Destiny, the developer has time and again assured fans that it loves all gamers equally. No Xbox-exclusive Destiny content has been announced to date, and with the game now finished, we don't expect that to change. However, players across all platforms can score some additional goodies for preordering the game.

Destiny launches September 9 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

until fall 2015? Honestly the game will be dead on xbox consoles long before fall of 2015. There still may be a few thousand that play (at best) but no where close compared to release day.

If things continue going smoothly for Sony and Bungie they could possibly make Destiny 2 a playstation exclusive.

Another victory for SONY and time exclusivity is a huge factor in console world as it drifts with velocity of light.

Couldn't care less, sure the strike I'd like to have, but I can probably do without it.

Honestly for a game like Destiny you realistically don't need more than a year of exclusivity. Its a game that everyone wants to play right away, but at the same time, one which pretty much everyone will have played by then.

I really hope this game lives up to the hype that has been created around it. I'm saving up to get it and if it gets a low rating then .. i guess i will get another game :P

Hands down this game will win game of the year! Played the beta on the PS3 and nothing but praise and dancing Titans, Warlocks and Hunters.  Love all the hate this game is receiving...pour it on.  Lets get a big block of cheese for this whine these so called gamers display.  White ps4 and destiny and white pulse head phones, HEAR I COME!  The game will get 5/5's, 10's and every perfect rating imaginable.  Marketing campaign hasn't slept a wink.  People who don't even game are talking about this.  This game alone should push another million consoles in Sony's favor.  This is....our DESTINY!

Upgrading my ships will be stimulating. I need to learn how to do two super moves in a row. A couple moments in Dead Sectors, I launched a Nova Bomb and struck an opponent directly and then my special move meter was instantly supercharged. 

The ninth is going to be awesome.

Don't like exclusive content for multi platform games on any system. It just sets a bad precedent for the industry and how it treats its fans (us).

Doesn't matter to me because I cancelled my pre order when I found out they weren't including couch coop :(

Destiny beta was the most boring thing I've played all year.


And I played Assassin's Creed 3 for the first time this year.

The Ultimate Bungie experience is only on Xbox. Time to start and finish the fight again.

There is no such thing as exclusive content because anyone who has the season pass can access all content from all systems and all retail stores

F exclusives.  Just give us all the same game and let us play it on the system of our choice.

sigh.. I am really getting tired of the comments about people cancelling their preorders because apparently destiny beta was not good.


guys, there was like a few missions, one strike mission and a few pvp maps and may I remind you that a lot of areas on earth were closed off meaning we will be getting a lot more places to go on earth alone at launch never mind the other planets. and seriously, this is the smoothest beta I have ever played. if there was a best beta of all time award, destiny would win. every time I loaded it up, it ran as good as I would expect any good released aaa game too and in fact ran much better than some games that have been launched in the past lol. 


From what I saw in the beta they had a solid, smooth fps experience with next to no technical flaws in the game. You all seem to forget that what we actually got in the beta was just a longer demo (still a lot longer than metal gear solid: ground zeroes). We have seen only a fraction of what destiny has to offer, and you all say "oh well I enjoyed some of it, but I didn't like this...". Have you not thought maybe those things will be better at launch, or perhaps as you get further into the game those things may be gone or not be an issue anymore?


from what I played of the moon mission, it looked like the game had only just started to properly kick off, the earth was more of a tutorial\grind to be able to survive the proper missions in the beta. so yeah, all I am saying is have a little faith and don't judge a game based off a couple of missions and a few pvp maps (and I thought the pvp was much better than titanfall and cod btw, its quite challenging and fun when you have your team in party chat with you). You have probably given worse games more of your time in the past, so why not give the game a go?

I canceled my pre-order after that boring beta... parts of the game are great, but the parts that aren't appealing to me don't make up for it.

I know many others that canceled pre-order too... so this exclusive content doesn't buy me in.

Sad to say, I feel this game has the same "Destiny" as Watch Dogs... overhyped

Looking forward to playing it on my Playstation 4 next month. I honestly care less for the exclusive DLC. Its a nice touch but not my deciding factor. Bungie is my only deciding factor to buying this game on day one. I had a blast on the beta and its only going to get better in the full game.

Nothing special here.  The exclusive gear will be worthless once you level up past a certain point and get higher level gear anyway, so really anyone who's not playing on PS4 is not missing out.  Extra maps?  More like meh-xtra maps.

Nothing all that exciting. I'm more interested in the Glacial White console that it will be bundled with, and even then that'll be available separately later.

@xXxIRyanxXx The Ultimate Bungie experience stems back to the original Marathon series on Mac OS 7.1.2, waaay back in the day before they create Halo. By far it's one of the best FPS games of all time. IMHO

@xXxIRyanxXx  Like for your reference. :) On another note the game is awesome on both PS4 and XBO. I actually only played it on my X360 and still it did look pretty good for old-gen.

@Aaronp2k Which is funny because I actually CREATED my pre-order due to the beta being so awesome.

@Aaronp2k The Destiny beta on the PS3 was outstanding. There were many playing and dancing every day it was online. I would like more to get it so we can make the most of the multiplayer experience.

xXxIRyanxXx

@Aaronp2k It was the smoothest beta because it is the exact same game as the one that comes out in a few weeks. The beta was to stress test the servers, it will have very little impact on gameplay.

@Fartman7998 Since you will repeat lots of strikes ( and the raid ) , 1 more strike map is more then meh for me .

Oh I'm sure destiny will be wildly praised as most bungee games...

But they did all this build up anticipation for watch dogs, it still didn't live up to it.. for me anyways.. Kinda seems like the destiny route too...

lushua

@berserks haha I feel the same. Everyone is acting like Xbox will be missing out on a bunch of stuff but in reality its hardly anything. Two weapons that are only decent for a portion of leveling and then will be replaced by weapons we all can acquire on any system and a couple of maps? The pve map isn't even a top level map so the gear isn't going to be stuff you would be trying to do a raid in anyways. When it comes to end game I feel like it makes zero difference.

berserks

@lushua @berserks We disagree actually , i meant to say t it matter to me . So more then meh in that sense .


But ya , at a certain point it won t matter much when you re at the 10 th time you replayed them all . When the time to move on will happen for me .
