“We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta,” said Pete Parsons, COO of Bungie. “We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we’ll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch.”
IRB Gamer is truly floored at the number of players that embarked on a journey alone or with friends as they played the Destiny Beta. I can’t remember the last game that pushed a “Beta” out to 4.6 million players. 4,638,937 to be exact.
If you ever had a game to push you mentally to the next level I can still guarantee you it was nothing like Destiny. I personally embraced the PlayStation 4 beta as GordonFroman played the Xbox One version, both agreeing that at times we almost felt as if Bungie’s beta was amazing, more like a glimpse of the full version and left us wanting Sept 9th to be tomorrow.
But as you wait, get on the wagon and preorder your copy of Destiny today on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.
