I'm not very happy that the collector edition is 1) GS exclusive and 2) comes with all the stuff I already have. May have to pass it up.

If this dlc is like the others, it's already on disc. The season pass is just a small download. I haven't heard about this dlc though. I'm sure there will be plenty of ways to chip away at the price tag. This is CAG and it ain't our first rodeo.


If you look at Bungie's site for the DLC, it says you need 40 GB free space for PS4/XB1 and 20 GB for 360/PS3, so as much as that may have been the case with DLC 1 and 2, I don't think it will be this time.

Preorders on Best Buy for the standard edition.  It's still the game, + season pass plus the new DLC for $60-GCU right?

 

That's really not bad, even with the destiny hate I spewed.

 

I downloaded the Destiny demo today and it let me play crucible/earth with my level 30s haha.

 

I'm not going to preoder, but I could see myself playing.

Wow.. I totally misread the title and thought this was about the next "tekken" getting a CE.

I went in and preordered it yesterday. I bought the Ghost Edition and loved it despite my constant regret I have whenever I buy collector's editions. I didn't feel it with the GE, I was happy with what I got, especially since I'm still playing and loving the game to this day. So I figured I HAVE to get this one. I'm now a sucker for everything Destiny. Gotta figure out what to do with the extra game and expansions. Sucks there's no Year 1 collector's edition. That would've been awesome.

 

Yeah. They charge once it ships. If you don't have enough on the card, they should suspend your transaction around release date and ask for another method of payment.

Ha, see, I knew it! The gamestop guy was extremely confident that they charge immediately. I had heard about them charging when they ship on this site, so I was extremely hesitant because the card I was using expires in august. So I just bought a gift card and used that. He was like ooooooooooook, you don't have to do that but if you want to... I would've been pisssssssssed if I had to change payment and didn't have the funds come release day.

If it was an online order they won't charge until it ships. If it was an in store web order, they will charge in full upfront.

The next 2 pieces of dlc that are coming out in Year 2 of Destiny are not included in the Taken King Legendary Edition right?

Does anyone know if the dlc will be all on the disc or if they will be codes for each one?

The trend is base game + codes. The game disc would have a high value if it was all on the disc, but I doubt Bungie would go that route

Separate codes works for me as I can sell the first 2 dlc since I don't need them.

This is what I am wondering. So if you buy the $80 version, you get the Taken King plus expansion 3 and 4?

Taken king is expansion 3 and I don't think you get the fourth one after that.

Mmm so unless you don't have the original + expansions the bundled version is not really worth it (imo). I might just wait until Destiny 2 comes out then

Dlc is $40 by itself so if you have credit to use then it is worth it. I paid $41 out of pocket so I'm happy with my purchase. And if the codes are all separate then you can probably get $15-20 back by selling the first two dlc.

Thanks for the info OP. I have Destiny on the PS3 and haven't bought the DLCs yet. I have waited to get the game on the PS4. I didn't want to pay $80 at gamestop for the legendary edition. Now I can pay $48 at Best Buy with GCU for everything.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I trusted he knew what he was talking about, but all I knew was it charges when shipped.

Yeah, this is garbage. There needs to be a real discount for existing customers/expansion pass owners. Those jumping in now can twice the game for half the cost with this bundle. *more grumbles about being suckered into the hype*

I'm shocked no on actually addressed this dum dum yet. None of the DLC was already in disc for the first two expansions. Areas wee accessible if you glitched into them, but they were incomplete. And also, they're just recycled spots from original missions with one or two new sections added. Everything else, all assets and in game items were provided via patches. For example, House of Wolves, which just launched last month, had three patches prior to release. These patches loaded the DLC into the game world so that when HoW was unlocked, you could play right away. You preloaded 2-3 GB worth of patches before the release date of the DLC. Did you just think that was for the hell of it? Then on release date, they pushed one small update that unlocked everything.

Please stop spreading misinformation when you have no idea what you're talking about.

So if taken king is like the base game, they will sell digital deluxe edition download cards at best buy. Does GCU apply to those?

i wonder if the legendary edition comes with vouchers or if it's on disc. If it's on disc i may purchase if it's a voucher then probably not

Taken King is not expansion 3. There was a leaked screenshot of the destiny schedule back in January. Taken King was called Comet, and it was going to be a physical release because it was supposed to be big. Ep. 3 & 4 are scheduled to be released afterwards

Well, idk lol it is actually going to be Destiny's first "expansion"...The Dark Below was pathetic and The House of Wolves was a better attempt. These 2 packs just re-used the world to add new missions. Taken King will hopefully be an actual expansion

Lol @ Destiny being rare. While it is a great price, there are far too many shooters coming out around the same time. This would have been better if you could get access to the base game, along with the 2 expansions now and then get the other when it is released.
