GameStop Upgraded Red Sparrow

For those of you who remember that GameStop poster we saw yesterday, it turns out GameStop has released a commercial for the promotion. Showcasing brand new footage, the video states that if you preorder Destiny from GameStop you will receive the Upgraded Red Sparrow (Otherwise known as the Shrike).

I have a feeling many people will not like this “exclusive bonus” because it gives more away than just a cosmetic benefit.

Bungie Weekly Update 4.25.14

This week at Bungie, we played some Destiny. “You always say that!” Guilty as charged, friends.  The path that leads to a great day-one Destiny experience – one that vaults our bar and yours – is cleared by many playtests. If it makes you feel any better, many of the early runs feel a bit like hacking our way through dense brush. It’s dark, but still sweltering. We’re wildly swinging the machete, carving a new path. And the bugs! This week was different. We played in a more hospitable environment: Our own game rooms. Almost as if all the trailblazing

Everyone’s tired all the time and you forget what it’s like to drive home while the sun is still up. But it’s always worth it. This week at Bungie, our inboxes were flaring up with status emails about every facet of the experience. According to the big green font at the top of each page, we are ON TRACK. Those two simple words in repetition are packed with emotion, and even a tiny bit of

There are times when I get to feel like a mentor in the Tower. When we meet new allies that will help us bring Destiny to the world, the pleasure of teaching them the ways of the Guardian falls to me. They receive a flash lesson in equipping some weapons and gear. I show them how to harness their Light to power fantastic talents of destruction. Once they know how to take their first steps, we
