Destiny Beta Platform Selection Now Available: Each Code Grants 3 Download Keys; Where Will You Play?

by on July 10, 2014 3:09 PM 104

Bungie just made the platform selection for the beta of Destiny available on thee official portal. And the sweetest thing is that each code will grant you not one, but three download keys to fill a full fireteam with your friends, as you can see in the picture at the bottom of the post.

All you have to do is to access your account,  go on to the “redeemed codes” page and select your platform and region (the region is can be selected only for PlayStation platforms, as Xbox One codes are global).

The system will then ask you for confirmation, and you better be sure when you click on “yes,” because your choice cannot be undone.

Whichever your choice, you won’t get your codes immediately. Those will appear on the same page on the day of the beginning of the beta: July 17th for PlayStation Platforms and July 23rd for Xbox consoles.

Which console did you choose as your beta platform? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.

Update: According to Bungie, the selection for PS4 beta codes for the European region will become available “before the Destiny Beta begins on 7/17.” At the moment that particular combination can’t be selected, so if you’re European and want to play on PS4, you will have to wait a bit longer.

    Already redeemed and already preordered the guardian edition digitally too. My briefs are dry for now but when the time comes, I WILL SQUIRT!

  • Kubr1ck

    If you select Playstation 4 (Europe) this message appears – “Codes are not available for this platform and region at this time. Please come back on July 17th to make this selection again and acquire your Destiny Beta code.”

    • Cpt Ahab Spampurse

      Yeah, I got the same message, I’ll try again tomorrow.

      • Giuseppe Nelva

        Bungie just responded. They say it’ll be available “before the 17th” and to stand by for updates :(

        • Delsin Rowe

          mr nelva i’ve done this. but they told me come back here on july 17 to get your access code. is this normal?

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            Yes. “Whichever your choice, you won’t get your codes immediately. Those will appear on the same page on the day of the beginning of the beta: July 17th for PlayStation Platforms and July 23rd for Xbox consoles.”

            The choice is registered, but you’ll find the download code there on the 17th.

          • Delsin Rowe

            thank you very much. XD

          • steve

            nothing there were it says my beta codes put me beta code in weeks ago

  • oGMo

    Anyone know if you need a new code if you were in the alpha? Or do you get one automatically?

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      You need a new code. Only those that preordered or got one through a giveaway have access to the beta.

      Otherwise, you just need to have a friend in the beta, as each codes give 3 keys, and ask him for one.

      • Jacques Onterio Thomas

        Giuseppe Nelva Thank you very much for posting this article I’ve been wondering when we were going to select our platform for hours! Thanks again and I hope to play you in destiny soon! :D

  • ASSASSYN

    Xbox one.

    • Guest

      Xbox One for me also..the platform most of my friends chose.

  • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

    I preordered a while ago so hopefully I know where all my information is.

    I will be playing the definitive console version which is the PS4.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Classy gamer is classy.

      • Guest

        Exactly.

        You could even argue the PS4 version will

        1 Have better graphics
        2 Larger group of people to play with
        3 More content
        4 Better DLC
        5. Launch with a white console

        And yet, none of that matters because guess what mate, people play on what console they own/prefer/friends

        All of that, for a MULTIPLATFORM games means nothing, and it is only marketed that way for the casuals, but us core gamers know it makes a negligible difference in choosing what platform we play Destiny on.

        • DLConspiracy//

          OH what I said was sarcasm haha. It doesn’t translate online well. I think people who say “definitive” when they post. Are just getting off on trying to rub the DLC in peoples faces. Probably because they get off on that sort of thing. Me, well I will gladly give up all that DLC to play with my group of friends. A worthy sacrifice.

          • Sucka Free

            Yeah the sarcasm came through but I think that “Guest” was agreeing by saying that there is no real “definitive version”, that gamers will choose whichever platform their friends are on and any exclusives or advantages one has over the other wont matter at all

          • DLConspiracy//

            It was hard to tell the post took me on an emotional journey. haha

          • Hates bad writers.

            I love when people circle jerk the useless DLC. It’ll be as useful as the vault hunter guns from Borderlands 2. pre-order gear is ALWAYS replaced within minutes of playing, why bother gloating about it?

        • AlexH

          Better graphics?
          Both have versions have been confirmed to run at 1080p/30fps.
          google it.

          • Zac Lee Martin

            Resolution and framerate aren’t all there are to graphics.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            That’s not the only difference. There were differences in all 360/PS3 Multiplatform games. This will be no different.

        • Zac Lee Martin

          None of it matters? At all? If someone is looking to buy a next gen console with Destiny it’s not going to matter that there is a Destiny console bundle and Destiny has better performance and more features than the competing consoles? Ohhhh.

          • Sucka Free

            yeah, but wouldn’t a person’s friend list, trophies/achievements/etc. all factor into that decision too? I know that right now, my system of choice is in the lead, but even if the situation were reversed and the Xbox had all the technical advantages, I would still buy a Playstation. I’m sure its the same with any gamer on any platform.

          • Zac Lee Martin

            Yes, that’s an obvious reason. But, that reasoning and the superior version along with exclusive themed console is a whole other reason for standalone buyers or groups of friends looking for which console to get it on.

        • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

          Not really that’s your personal opinion. Some people like the $400 value system to play Destiny. It’s a good price to performance ratio.

        • Sage

          don’t forget the actual PS4 controller was designed partly by Bungie with Destiny in mind.

        • Adam Rios

          Well said!

    • Hates bad writers.

      A console version, not definitive. It practically does nothing different, thus making the word “definitive” irrelevant. Off with you, pony.

      • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

        Haha X1 camp or PC elitist. The fact it’s a better version for a $400 value system. So it’s a good price to performance investment.

        • Hates bad writers.

          It’s a horrible price/performance investment for either console as a comparable PC would outclass it for the same price. Then again, you’re comparing two games with admittedly identical specs, how stupid could you be? Well, you are from N4G, being a moron goes without saying, just like it does for pretty much everyone on that site.

        • Adam Rios

          You can buy a steam machine for $500 like the Alienware Alpha and get much better performance and bang for your buck. I myself am playing the beta on PS4 because that’s where my friends are playing, but would much rather play on my PC. Also, you might want to no defend yourself when called a Pony, by calling the other person a fanboy as well. That doesnt make you less of a fan boy, you’re simply saying “Yea! Well you are too!”

    • Will Brenes

      Hey man can you send me a beta code if you have any left over?

  • Johnny Flores

    The alpha was a blast and so will this. If you’re on the fence preorder off amazon and get your code if you don’t like it cancel it. You won’t be charged till it ships

  • Jacques Onterio Thomas

    I’ve also noticed that they will give us 3 download keys does that mean that we will be able to give it to multiple friends?

    • Somebodyissilent

      I’m gonna say yes. Pick your friends wisely. Maybe get some favors for later.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Yes :D

  • heitiki

    i’m one of the ps4-eu’s :) really looking forward to it.
    ah btw basically all of my friends have the game preordered also,so if anyone needs an extra code don’t hesitate contacting me.

    • Jacques Onterio Thomas

      I want an extra code to give to my friend. Also I have a ps4 too I would love to play with cha. :D

      • heitiki

        once the codes become available i will send them. just add me on psn. my id is pipesmokerKPD. ;)

        • Jacques Onterio Thomas

          Cool. Also what class will you be playing as? I’ll be playing as hunter. I love my flame gun. :D

        • Jamesb0ndjr

          If you by chance have any more codes I would be down to play and it would be appreciated. I’ll send you a friend request as well.

    • mestrerothdsq

      Hey, any chance to still get one code?

      It is a day one to me, but if I preorder the game in my country, taxes make me pay double and still wait for a month until the game arrives…

      PSN mestreroth (the american one)…

  • Raymond Ebanks

    Before clicking the article. The title image looked like teenage mutant ninja turtles and shredder. lol.

  • Nicholas

    Looks like i’ll have to wait a bit longer to register (uk), as long s I still get the beta on the 17th then I’m happy

  • DLConspiracy//

    I will be playing on the “definitive” console version which is the Xbox one. :p. I even have a PS4. I love how people try to jab old school Bungie fans online. Classy.

  • Matt Berial

    PS4 with friends is where i’ll be playing. Going to destroy some enemies. :D

  • Bobby Jenssin

    do u get three more beta codes after u put in your own code is that what this article is trying to say????

    • disqus_TCr2DiTW3m

      you get 3 codes including yours but they wont be sent out until the 17th for ps4 and 23rd for xbox

      • Bobby Jenssin

        i got it!! thanks i appreciate that!!

      • Bobby Jenssin

        u play on ps4??

        • disqus_TCr2DiTW3m

          I’m getting the beta for both but the full game on xbox i think. most of my friends play on there

  • DLConspiracy//

    Actually I just thought of a way that could help people with both systems. If you have a friend who owns both. You can play the beta on both the Xbox One and PS4 or last gen. Since you get 3 code keys for each selection just have your friend sign up for the opposite one and you can enjoy the beta on both.

  • Shawn

    i think what the article meant to say was if you pre-ordered the collectors edition you get additional codes not for a standard edition, and if you want enter the codes at the redeem codes screen to unlock stuff in game when the game launches thank me later http://destiny.gamepedia.com/Trading_Cards

    • disqus_TCr2DiTW3m

      you still get the additional codes with the standard edition

    • DLConspiracy//

      Yeah they can’t separate the two. They are offering it across the board.

      • Shawn

        very interesting i entered my two and didn’t receive no extra maybe they will email them i dunno

        • DLConspiracy//

          Yeah they said they will on the date of the platform you choose.

          • Shawn

            Ok nice well if anybody needs codes let me know

          • DLConspiracy//

            Super awesome of you. I may have 1 code I can give up too. Trying to work it out with a friend to get codes on PS4 and Xbox One. So we get the best of both worlds.

          • Shawn

            i have redeemed a code for ps4 and xb1 and all my friends have codes aswell so let me know xb1 IK IR Y IP T ps4 IKIRYIPT

          • DLConspiracy//

            Well if you are offering I will gladly take one. My gamer tag is

            DekonReighn on both xbox one and PS4.

            Add me anyway. If your friends need a code I can give one too.

    • Sucka Free

      Nice, thanks.

  • AlexH

    XboxOne all the way baby, where true multiplayer gaming was born

    • L3AK3D

      really ??

    • DLConspiracy//

      I will say that it was surprisingly smooth on PS4. The chat I mean. I normally hate PS4 chat, but Destiny Alpha was the first time I didn’t have a negative experience with it. Still.. I am getting it for Xbox One because of my friends.

    • Robert

      where true multiplayer gaming was born? are you 12?

    • Warren Morris

      I would love to know what you have been smoking, What a completely stupid statement

    • TheRunning King
  • AAA

    well…i guess i’ll have to wait…

  • Nordu

    From what i’ve heard about the alpha the beta should be a blast whatever the system.

  • Alucai Vivorvel

    So, question: if I select my platform, will both of my codes’ platforms be selected? I have two beta keys. Or will I be able to select another platform with the second code?

  • http://www.xboxonedaily.com/ TheRedButterfly

    Playing on Xbox. <3

    • Sucka Free

      didn’t see that coming :p

      • http://www.xboxonedaily.com/ TheRedButterfly

  • Nyx

    I’d appreciate it if someone could give me a download key? I really want to try the beta out. I can’t pre-order the game because of where I live. Any help is really appreciated.

  • Tyler Davis

    Definitely playing this on my One. I have a couple of friends picking up the One specifically for Destiny and then for the drop in the fall with the Master Chief collection :)

  • Vious

    on my X1

  • superkarma

    I’ll be happily playing it on my PS4 with the rest of my buddies. I’m hoping the servers don’t actually go offline completely on those 2 outlined days, but rather just have sporadic connections.

    6 more days. Can’t wait :)

  • Plant Terz

    someone plz email me a code at adrian_yearwood@yahoo.com
    and add Plantgeta on PSN….lets kill sum “airliens”

  • Black Heaven

    I hope Destiny develops a strong online community, especially on PS4 where I am planning to play this. Strong enough that I can still see many people online even by 2015.

  • Sean

    Hey I’ve got a question. Is the beta also later for PS3 in Europe? I tried to enter PS3 Europe a moment ago and it said “Codes are not available for this platform and region at this time. Please come back on July 17th to make this selection again and acquire your Destiny Beta code.” Just want to make sure I will be able to play the béta :)

    • Kingdom17

      You can. You selected it, its just saying the codes aren’t in yet.

      • Sean

        Ok thanks a lot :D Just got scareed for a sec.

  • Jan Compaf

  • Gary Downey

  • Sage

  • William Eder

    It says no results but i have preorder it on the ps4!!!! What do i do!!!!!!

  • War Daddy

    I have a question: I live in the U.S. and have pre-ordered Destiny on the PS4. When I was selecting my platform/region, there were only two PS4 region options; I can’t remember what the second one was but it obviously wasn’t North America, so I chose the first option: PS4(Americas). Does this mean it includes North America? I didn’t have any doubts when I selected it at the time, but then I came on this site and saw the picture with the option of PS4(USA) and became unsure. If somebody could please answer this question it would be much appreciated.

  • Nathan

    I am 100% sure that I typed in my codes because I’ve gotten multiple emails verifying that I did. What’s wrong?

    • Nathan
