During the PlayStation All Access event on Spike, Bungie COO Pete Parsons presented an exclusive trailer for Destiny. But more importantly, after the trailer, Parsons announced the beta would be coming first to PlayStation.
"We're going to give first access to the PlayStation nation, PS4 and PS3 owners," he said. The Destiny beta is scheduled for early next year for folks who pre-order.
In celebration of the launch of the PlayStation 4, Bungie is pleased to announce that the Destiny beta will be available first on the PS4 and PS3!
Here's a video from the team:
Fans who pre-order Destiny at participating retailers worldwide will receive their Beta redemption code while supplies last.
