    Don't forget, if you have a PS4, the beta kicks off on 7/17. All you have to do is pre-order it for access.

    I got the beta code from a friend and I downloaded it last night. I have yet to play it but I'll get to it. Unfortunately I won't get to it until next Friday so I'm going to miss the majority of the beta run.

    Thankfully for you, this is a pretty short beta, you can be done in a matter of hours. So far, it's looking like it's going to be a great game.

    I really enjoyed what little bit of it I played Friday night. I played for a couple hours so I didn't get to much time on it but I really enjoyed it.

    Played on the 360. Looks like a keeper.

    In related news the Xbox One dashboard is making me happy I never bought one of those.

    Been playing on a Xbox one and the dashboard is awful. Worse than the 360 in terms of response.

    Anyone have similar problems or does my brother got a lemon?

    If anyone has a spare code for the X1 I'd greatly appreciate it. Trying to get my buddy into the game.

    So is there a way to play this game largely via single player or exclusively MP? I hear it both ways and thanks for any info.

    The PvE stuff you can almost exclusively do alone. You will find other players out in the field if you want to help them and such. The story missions are pretty much solo. Strike missions put you with a three man team because of the difficulty. The crucible (MP) can let you enter as a random or with a clan/fireteam. It just depends on how you want to play really.

    Thanks for the info, I will be picking it up now. I didn't want to find out that it's closer to MAG/Titanfall after booting it up.

    The Moon Mission was absolutely fantastic earlier today. Just some crazy stuff I found after I completed the main parts and went back there before the time ended. This game will just be flat out AMAZING.

    I really enjoyed the beta. I missed some of it due to being out of town, but I spent quite a few hours playing. I'm really excited for this one. PvP and PvE were both entertaining. I experienced a few hiccups along the way, but overall I thought the beta top notch.

    I hope the loading time will decrease a bit, and a voting option for maps, rather than randomly getting stuck with a map like the Moon over and over again.

    PSN is ViolentKaos if anyone wants to play when the game launches. Just shoot me a message stating you are from the forum.

    The multiplayer didn't really look that good to me.

    The story and co-op looks great but I don't care for what I've seen multiplayer wise. Played in one game type where the entire other team was running as a group and they all has great gear.

    It's basically gonna be a situation where the hardcore players group up and acquire enough equipment and weapons to never lose because they'll be matched against random individuals who are clumped together.

    I never got back on the beta. I didn't try the Multiplayer but the story part was so good that I went ahead and pre-ordered it saturday when I paid off my Last of Us that I can't wait to pick up tomorrow.

    I was going to play the beta more this weekend but Battlefield 4 had Double XP going on and I just couldn't pass that up for a beta. :)

    The one thing that you can be happy about is that from what I understand is that you can get your equipment in game and then us it in the Multiplayer. So, unlike CoD or Battlefield or whatever, where you have to level up and get your stuff through multiplayer only in Destiny you can gain the great equipment in the the single player and then use it on your character in the multiplayer. So that will help level some of that out.
