I may have to upgrade my limited edition to the Ghost Edition.
No love for Xbox owners:(
I'm actually cool with the Xbox beta running 4 days. Gives us a small taste of the full game. I wouldn't want to play the beta longer and leveling up my character knowing full well I'm gonna have to do it all over again with the full game.
So Xbox players get 4 days? So unless you play A LOT over the course of that Thursday to Sunday, it doesn't seem like you would get a good feel for the game...I'll give it a whirl but that does not seem very engaging to me
While I am saddened that the Beta timeframe for Xbox users has been cut down to a sliver, I am happy to see that Bungie/Activision has found another way to bleed my wallet dry.
..I'm going to have to try and get upgraded to the limited edition..
I cannot wait for this game!
I'm an Xbox guy. I have both new consoles. If a game multi platform, then I prefer to play on Xbox. HOWEVER, between the fact that my closest friends are getting it for PS4, and the fact that the PS4 will have some exclusive content for the 1st year, I have finally made my mind up.
I'll be getting the Digital Guardian Edition for the PS4.!
Now FFW to Sept. 9th !!!!
