We don't have a huge
amount of transparency beyond the actual reveal here, but it turns out Destiny will be accessing local servers here in Australia.
“The seamless matchmaking experience in Destiny is designed so it doesn’t require locally-hosted servers for most players, but depending on where you are and if it is required to have an optimal experience, there are locally-hosted servers all over the world, including in Australia.”
Again, we have no idea where they're being hosted, or what the phrase "doesn't require locally-hosted servers" actually means. But it's a win for the geographically-challenged, regardless.
Destiny unlocks for last and current-gen consoles in Australia tonight close to midnight. Will we see you there, and if so, on what platform?
