Destiny's Beta on Xbox One Is 12.63 GB, Almost Twice as Big as the PS4 Alpha

The leak of a couple gameplay videos from the Xbox One version of Destiny‘s beta has also led to the discovery of the hidden marketplace page of the beta on Microsoft’s console.

While of course the download isn’t publicly available, it does show the size of the beta, which is 12.63 gigabytes.

That’s almost twice as much as the alpha build on PS4, which weighed 7.836 Gb on the console’s hard disk and had a download size just north of 6.8 Gb.

Normally PS4 and Xbox One downloads don’t show a large difference in size, which means the PS4 version of the beta is probably going to weigh around 12 Gb as well.

Looks like we’re in for a pretty sizable download on the 17th (for PS4) and on the 23rd (for Xbox One). Of course that also means that the beta contents have also been considerably increased compared to the alpha.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
