Bungie might formally announce a collector's edition for its upcoming shared-world shooter Destiny next week, the developer teased on its website as part of the latest Bungie Weekly Update.

"Ask us again next week," Bungie wrote in response to a question regarding a collector's edition for Destiny.

If there is indeed a Destiny Collector's Edition, it wouldn't be much of a surprise, as Bungie has a long-established tradition of supporting its marquee titles from the Halo series with premium bundles.

It's unclear what Bungie might include with a Destiny Collector's Edition, though if the past serves as precedent, you can likely expect a mix of physical and digital goodies. Bungie even showed off some beautiful Destiny concept art last year that could be included in the pack.

Destiny launches September 9 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Bungie will hold a beta for the game beginning this summer first on PS3 and PS4.

What would you like to see in a Destiny Collector's Edition?

Everyone wants a permanent perk that gives them an edge over other gamers. I'm not taking about guns or slight of hand, I'm taking about a few extra slots for items or something passive. Something that is maybe purchasable for other gamers but you get it for free with an art book and maybe a wearable peace of clothing that shows you bought the collectors edition.


If Destiny is like any other MMORPG on the market right now inventory slots (much like defiance) can be expanded with micro transactions. Hopefully micro transactions will be apart of destiny, I like many other gamers use micro transactions because for us its worth it to load up on inventory slots rather than going back and forth from battle to town every time your inventory fills.

Yes! Extra inventory slots or bigger gun magazine size would be nice!

I hope Activision doesn't force Bungie to charge $180 for the Collector's Edition.....

I don't mind what comes in a collector's edition as long as the game lives up to all the hype. Having said that I do like metal cases with some cool artwork on them.

Behind-the-scenes making-of videos. We get so much of that cool stuff with movies now, I don't understand why it isn't done for games as well. I eat that stuff up. An artbook wouldn't be bad either. If you really want to stretch, maybe a special edition controller?


I'm not a huge fan of statues (the only SE statue I have is from Halo: Reach) but I'd also love to see a model of the Last City with the Traveler suspended above it. Someone suggested to me that they could use magnets to make the Traveler float by itself. Add some LEDs into it, and you've got a pretty kick-ass collector's piece.

<< LINK REMOVED >> totally digging the floating traveler model! I'd pay extra for it! XD


Wouldn't buy if it were just behind the scenes crap or artbooks. Sorry. But that kind of stuff is neat to look at BEFORE the game is released. Once it's out, I'm either playing it or done with it. Don't care about stuff behind the curtain then.

I guess it will contain a proper game manual...like the ones from the SNes/Mega Drive era(a standard back then)

Including the actual game would be preferable.

I love Bethesda, but that's gotta be the most retarded idea I've heard from the video game industry.

Orrrrr we could go out of bounds. Exclusive controllers that only work on PC...oh wait....the "master race" isn't getting this game?!....awww....lol!

Forgot about the controller...that would be cool. I remember Zelda: skyward sword came with one and the special edition was cheaper than buying the game and controller seperate. AND it came with a soundtrack. These are some things that make me purchase special edition games, lol

Is this a pay per month to play game? If so they should include one month free with the CE. Also can we get actual hand signed stuff instead of stamped on garbage in CEs?

<< LINK REMOVED >> It is not a pay per month game. That said, typically, those sort of games inherently come with one free month.

Hard to say what we want since there is still so much we don't know. However included season pass should be a given for any premium version of any game. If it ends up saving me money or makes me spend the same amount of money yet adds on other cool stuff, I'll probably buy it. However, if the season pass isn't included, probably a no-buy for me. Idk though, Bungie may surprise me. I've actually got high hopes for this game.

No more useless BS like artbooks and action figures, and just a boat load of in game content who agrees with that?

95% of "bonus" in-game content that was "exclusive" to special editions always get sold later on online therefore you end up paying extra for what??? Timed-exclusivity??? Ummm no thanks. I'd rather have a tangible item like a cool statue.

First things first is to play the Beta and if this game is spot-on, then we'll talk about the collectors edition.

Ugh, not everything needs a collector's edition. This is getting as bad as DVDs with their special extended limited editions with 5 minutes of unseen footage and behind the scences footage noone watches.

With your logic, I should just say:

"Ugh, not everyone or no one at all should buy the regular edition of this game day 1. Just wait 1 year & you can save $40 when the game drops to $20."
