The lights are on
Today is Destiny day, with Bungie revealing all kinds of information on
its formerly mysterious project. Turns out today also marks the day that you can
begin pre-ordering the game.
Retailers like Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy all have skus on their websites where you can go ahead and plop a few bucks down to get in line for Bungie's next project. Amazon lists the game being available in December, and although GameStop doesn't have a release date listed on its website, a quick call to a retail location says that the game has a January 2014 release date.
Neither of these release windows have been confirmed by Bungie, and are likely just placeholder dates in order to allow reserves to be taken.

I was a little wary of Activision's involvement with this but I want to think they're smart enough to let Bungie have complete reign over the game
I happened to be at GameStop minutes after preorders were announced and put my money down right away.
Good idea by Bungie to announce this before next gen consoles arrive! I will be preordering this today so i can finally retire by Boondock Saints 2 poster and replace it with Destiny!
Way too early for pre-ordering. More than likely the game will get pushed back. Just look at Bungies history. Hell, Halo 2 was pushed back like five times. Still, the game looks interesting. I'll definitely keep an eye on this.
Too far off for me. I would like to get more information about it first. But it looks very promising.
I'm going to hold off pre-ordering this game. This is gutsy of Bungie, because this is smack dab in the middle of next-gen console season. There won't be too much hard earned cash left to burn for current gen games.
Can't wait for this game. Probably going to pre-order when I pick up the new Gears of War.
I pretty much refuse to pre-order a game that I have no prior experience with, so this will have to wait. I do love that screenshot, though.
I'm a little confused by all the talk over this being a next-gen title. It was clearly announced for this generation. Just because it's pushing the end of a generation, doesn't mean it'll get ported. I'm not saying it won't, either. I wouldn't get your hopes up though, because even if it's ported, it's going to be an early launch title, so I wouldn't count on it being optimized any better than the current generation versions.
That concept art reminds me of the original Halo 2 Demo from way back.
I am gonna pre order it when I get the chance. Bungie hasn't let me down with any of the halos. ( my favorite series ) and I don't think that they will now.
