If Bungie wanted to drop a bombshell in the next-generation console race, then siding with Sony and the PlayStation was probably the best way to do it. To coincide with the launch of the PlayStation 4 console today, Bungie have confirmed that the Destiny BETA phase will launch on PlayStation consoles before it does on Microsoft ones.
Although the full game will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 all at the same time, the development studio have confirmed that Sony gamers will get to play the BETA phase first. Gamers who have pre-ordered, or will pre-order the game soon, will be rewarded with BETA codes whilst stocks last, and then redeem their nine-digit entry code in order to secure their place in the BETA.
Take that Microsoft – so says a Sony Executive somewhere.
