Yes, the service required to play games online is required for you to participate in the beta for this game that can only be played online.

The Destiny Beta could actually be played without Gold/Plus you just couldn't do the Strike or the Crucible. On PS3 you could do everything without PS+.

@starvinggamer: Since when is Plus required to play PS3 games online?

That's great! I think I'll still stick it out until the game comes out though.

Can't find any link to download it for PS4 on console or online. Assuming Playstation is just being slow to update it's stuff per usual. Wouldn't be surprised if it's not even up for a few hours.

The Crucible just got a whole lot more crowded.

The Destiny beta is now open to all PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners, Bungie has announced.

In the announcement, Bungie says that the open beta starts at 4 PM PDT. You'll need PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold to play online, naturally. Download advertisements will appear directly on the console once it rolls out.

"We have watched your adventures with great interest, and listened to your feedback. Your missions have provided us with volumes of discoveries we can use to prepare for the launch of Destiny in September," the announcement states. "Our work is not done. There is more we can learn. To make this happen, we need more Guardians to play. This is, above all else, a test."

The beta arrived for PlayStation 4 pre-orders first, then expanded to Xbox One this week. It seems to have generated plenty of interest, seeing as supply of the $150 "Ghost Edition" was running so short that retailers have been forced to cancel preorders. Activision released a statement about it today, saying the company and Bungie intended it to be "truly limited."

IGN: Destiny Beta Now Open to All

IGN says that its open to "all," next-gen only platforms. I don't think its necessarily on open to any PS3 nor 360 people, also you still have to pay the $10 per month subscription, etc.

Awww C'MON! I don't have the new consoles, my 360 controller broke, and now there's no one else I can cry on :(

Alright it's up for PS4 now, but it's not under the game's page or even the Spotlight tab. It's under the Playstation Plus tab.

It's telling me I can't download the beta because I don't own Destiny. buh?

Is this not available in Europe/outside the US? Found it on the US PSN site but can't find it anywhere on the EU PSN. Hearing a few others say the same.
