, an ongoing review of the online service of a recently launched game.
Friday, September 12 | T-minus 27 days until final verdict
Current State of Service: Good
continues to enjoy a clean launch, with glitches hitting a small number of players.
is holding up well across PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in its first week online, with the most prominent server issue being the Boar error on PS3. Bungie offers a workaround
for the bug: Install Destiny
, create a new PSN account designating the same region as the game, and then launch it and sign into your original PSN account. If that doesn't work, try deleting and reinstalling Destiny
. Inelegant, but effective, apparently.
The Joystiq staff hasn't encountered any connection issues since launch, though Feature Content Director Xav de Matos has received a PS4 UI error noting he's lost connection to the server. Oddly, he hasn't dropped connection to the game itself, even when the notification appears in the middle of matches. Destiny
's first weekend events
kick off today, and Bungie promises that public events will appear more frequently in the game "very soon."
If you encounter any connection problems while playing Destiny
, let us know in the comments, or on the Joystiq Twitter
