If you own both Xbox and PlayStation platforms and have been scratching your head as to which version of Bungie's hugely anticipated Destiny to pick up, this video might help make your mind up.

As has been loudly promoted every time Sony mentions Destiny, the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 offerings will feature some exclusive content that won't be available for Xbox players at launch, including weapons, gear and some complete multiplayer maps. Check out the video below to deduce whether they're worth signing your platform alleigance.

Destiny is due to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 worldwide on September 9th 2014.

The latest Weekly Update on Bungie's official blog confirms that the game has "gone gold", the industry term for when a game completes its initial development and manufacturing of retail game discs commences.
Now, we’re very close to launch – the final weeks. This next milestone carries a heavier weight of finality. Destiny is Gold. Discs are being pressed and packed into crates. Destiny is done, in some respects. Even now, so close to the end, it still feels like we’re just getting started.

Have we said that before, too? As the saying goes: This is not even our final form. Though Destiny may be basking in the gold light of release, we’re already looking ahead to the next milestone, and the next one after that
Destiny is due to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 worldwide on September 9th 2014, but one hotly requested feature that apparently won't be making it to launch is loot trading, as the developer confirms toward the end of its weekly update that although players will be able to swap gear around between characters on the same account, there won't be a facility to share your spoils will fellow players:
Only with your enemies. Trade your ammo for their loot. You know the best way to deliver ammo to a Cabal Centurian? You’ll figure it out, and it’s tons of fun.

As for swapping irons in the Tower? Nope. We want you to earn ‘em. You should be able to tell a badass story for every sweet jewel in your arsenal.
An odd omission for such an MMO-inspired social online multiplayer game, but perhaps they need more time to consider and refine the economic machinations of trading or similar.

The much anticipated release date for Destiny creeps ever closer, and publisher Activision has now let loose the obligatory launch trailer.

It's not quite as interesting as most previous videos for the game, but it ought to still get you in the mood for defending the solar system and humanity from the galactic threat.
There are enemies out here you would not believe, but they’ve never seen anything like you. It doesn’t matter who you are, only what you will become.

As we edge ever close to Destiny's much anticipated launch date, Activision and Bungie have released another new promotional trailer, this time offering a look at the game's environments set on the planet Venus.

Much like the game's post-alien invasion Earth, Bungie's depiction of Venus looks quite a bit different than if you were to visit there today, terraformed vegetation and all. A brief description explains that in the game's lore, the planet was "once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost".

The incredibly popular beta test for Destiny took players to Bungie's sci-fi vision of an alien invaded Earth, but the full game will be venturing much farther from home than that. The latest trailer takes a peek at Mars, touring some of the expectedly red-hued environments that will be on offer.
What little we know of Mars may as well be a myth. We built a massive metropolis in the red dust. No one knows what remains of our lost age, now buried beneath the dunes.

Destiny is, by now, a house-hold name. With more than 4 million participants in the game's beta test, it's safe to assume Destiny is destined for big things.

Today at Gamescom Bungie and Activision pulled the curtain back a bit on the competitive multiplayer side of things, revealing a few new locations as well as new game modes, and didn't once mention the Traveler or the encroaching Darkness. Chatoic and lush, explosive and with vehicles, this trailer shows just a glimpse of what the competitive MP side of the game is going to look like. Watch it embedded below.

Destiny is due to launch on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 this September.

While we already know that Bungie's recent Destiny beta saw an astounding 4.6 million players take the sci-fi shooter on a joyride, Bungie's recent beta infographic has revealed that 853,235 of them did so concurrently.

Alongside the player count, it also seems Destiny's beta players couldn't quite figure out which class to play, with 6.5 million Guardians created over the two-week period. The community's kill-to-death ratio in the cooperative story, strike and exploration missions was 22.53, thanks to a grand total of 3.7 billion kills during those quests. What's more, Bungie's Saturday field trip to the moon resulted in 853,235 concurrent players.

You can check out the entirety of the infographic over here. Destiny will be launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 come September 9th. While you wait, why not check out the beta's streamable soundtrack below to relive the testing phase.

Activision Blizzard has announced over 4.6 million Guardians took part in the recent Destiny beta.

The exact figure came in at 4,638,937, which is pretty astonishing considering how short a period it was available for. The beta kicked off on Sony platforms on July 17, before coming to Xbox owners the following week.

Bungie COO Pete Parsons said, "We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta. 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.”

Destiny will be launching on September 9th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Those wishing they had the chance to try out Destiny's beta but were having trouble securing a code need not worry, as developer Bungie has today revealed that the entire beta is now open to all those aspiring to be a Guardian.

A new blog post notes that the servers should now be open to anyone with a PlayStation or Xbox console, however, you'll require at the very least a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live subscription to participate. The beta has been running since late last week, where initially PlayStation platforms were able to access the testing grounds before the beta was opened up to Xbox platforms earlier this week.

The beta allows testers the chance to taste the sci-fi universe that Bungie is creating, but only up until level eight (though you can roll three classes) so savour every moment. Players can access a variety of story missions, the very first strike mission (think dungeons in MMOs) and The Crucible, a PvP-centered zone for those who want to flex their competitive muscles. You'll find all required information directly through your console.

Bungie has sent word that the previously presumed two day maintenance for their sci-fi FPS MMO Destiny has resolved ahead of schedule, bringing the beta back online a day earlier than expected.

With the beta now back online, both PlayStation and Xbox platform owners can now access the testing grounds, previously only available exclusively to PlayStation consoles. The beta offers up a more polished look at the first few hours of Destiny, including Old Russia and The Crucible PvP zone. Earth's Moon is hinted at once reaching level 6 (the beta is capped at level 8), however sadly Bungie is keeping that one locked away until launch.

Destiny will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come September 9th. How are you fairing in the beta? Found any epic loot worth sharing? Let us know in the comments!
