Hi guys two questions....

Is the Digital Guardian Edition up for pre-order on UK psn store yet?
Whats the cost on PSN for it?

I may go digital for this and TLOU.
Nothing in the French store. It seems Bungie, Activision and Sony don't really care about Europe. The Limited and Ghost Editions aren't even available in French stores (yet?)

Soo, here's the thing. Preordering it from PSN, download the Beta and then cancel your preorder sounds great, however this is in the ToS:



So technically they can still make you pay for playing the Beta.
on EU server you will be charged few days before dayone

yea there is no destiny beta for me on the store or in the library. there is the destiny pre-ordered with the 2 month countdown.

Edited to add that i have no code on the bungie site either since i never got a code from psn

Yea, I know that just cancelling it is fine. However it still states that by using the promotional materials you are given. ( In this case the Beta ), you'll still be charged for the game. Also, this is taken from the EU ToS.

Don't hate! Here's my connection (I've never even had a better one):



I can't stream games even if I wanted to.

It's for the Standard edition. The Digital Guardian Edition isn't avaialble in Europe.

Ok, so basically, pre-order it on EU store, preload the beta, cancel pre-order.

Let's do this.
I really should do this as well. I still don't understand anything about this game but the GAF hype is interesting.

It's an always-online, story-based FPS with loot and MMORPG-levels of customization. You can play it solo or in co-op. Like MMORPGs, it also has raids. If you're into competitive shooters there is a PvP mode called the Crucible (with Team Deathmatch, Domination, etc.)

Has anyone worked out what day/time of day the beta should be open for Europeans? Does it open at midnight in a certain US time zone or is it later in the day? Trying to work out if I need to be thinking of ways to waste away the final hours.

off topic: has anyone in the UK receive their alpha moon wizard t-shirt yet?

OK, I just preordered the EU PSN Digital Version, so that I could get the Beta downloaded but after a minute or two the download changes from 13GB to 175MB. So, it isn't downloading the whole Beta.

Plus, I can't see anywhere to cancel! Looks like I might end up with a digital version AND the Ghost Edition! Woops!

It has an X on the download button for me...
Delete that and go to the store and re download the beta.

To cancel your pre-order, log in your PSN account from a web browser, then go to your Purchase History menu. You'll find your Destiny pre-order and there will be a Cancel button.

It downloading in the background.

Go to the destiny beta tile, press options, then go to information.

Cancelling a PS4 Preorder, got to settings, then 'PSN', then wallet information, then click on the transaction itself and finally cancel preorder.

I pre-ordered the game (amazon) > got the code > redeemed it > waiting for the EU download codes



I'll get 3 download codes I can share them with my friends right?

If anyone manages to preload the beta on their US account, I would greatly appreciate a heads up via PM. Thanks.

Oh and is it possible for a non europe resident to add funds to an EU account by purchasing the top up cards through Amazon?

I don't think this applies to Destiny, I have it preordered too and there is no cancel button for it. I've cancelled preorders before so I know that it should be possible...

I'm just praying that when the digital edition becomes available in the UK we can upgrade like the US...

I have the ability to cancel it (I'm in the UK too).

That's weird.

Should I be able to get download codes already? I selected PS4 Americas and it is telling me to come back on the 17ths.
