    That is true, but that isn't a deciding factor for me, lol. Unless Flagz really is a WIZARD! :O

    I suppose it depends on which platform your more social with. Destiny seems to hinge on the social aspect of gaming. Especially with the knowledge that some of the high raids require you to partner up.

    Where are you more active with friends/potential friends - PSN or XBL? That to me would be the deciding factor. Who cares about an extra mission or so... :)

    More friends on XBL, a lot more. That exclusive content, just wish Bungie talked about that more, so I could decide.

    I am a Wizard, from the moon actually. Also, I checked Gamescom announcement and nothing too ear catching to note in term of PS4 exclusives.

    They just did, some PVP content and like one strike mission. The actual paid DLCs (the first one) will be "available to eveyone in december"

    Was the only timed exclusive stuff for PS4 in Destiny just Crucible stuff? The streaming feed was glitching out on me during that time (doesn't that make people so excited to stream games on the PS4)

    A lot of it does seem legit, but not enough to sway me from a platform of friends. If the past timed exclusives for any games shine any light on specs, these will all be low level based weapons that will be irrelevant within the first few hours of gameplay. The real powerful weapons are gonna be universal guaranteed, but that assault rifle almost had me at first glance =)

    Why would you need new ships though? Isn't the only thing you doing going from one area to another?

    It seems to be just a loading screen thing, really, but it's a loading screen thing that other players will see. So it's kind of a vanity/status token and if you have some really cool/rare/expensive ship, other people will see that and go like "zomg, this dude is a wizard, he came from the moon!"

    So that, one mission, one map, and a few weapons that you said aren't really good? If that's true, that will be my decision maker.

    Trying to look at it objectively, if I was in your situation I'd just ignore those "exclusives" cos they arn't good enough at all to base the platform pick on that. That one Strike I'd like on Xbox One, but I sppose it comes later and definitely not a deal breaker. If most of my friends were on Xbox like you seemed to have described, I wouldn't even consider getting Destiny for PS4 just for this meh exclusives.

    What is this content though?

    To my knowledge that is just the PVP content in general. One of those maps may be timed exclusive to PS4, but not the game modes to my understanding. As far as I understood most of that is just the basic game, but since Destiny was only talked about on Sony's show, it might come off as if it had something to actually do with PS4 specifically :P

    Okay, thanks so much for all your and Flagz's feedback. I made my mind, and I'm getting the Wii U version! Oh wait, I meant the PC version. Wait, they don't make either? I guess I'll get the Xbox One version. ;)

    Still deciding whether to get it for my PS4 or Xbox One. Exclusive content or better controller (I prefer the X1's controller)? Hmm...
    I choose X1. Prefer the controller, more friends and I hate console exclusive items- ill buy the other version if only to show my lack of interest in exclusive stuff. Sony pulled the same crap with Diablo 3. These "exclusives" are low level stuff that you'll forget about after they become out classed by higher level equipment and loot.

    To be fair, Xbox has that too. BF4, Call of Duty, making Tomb Raider an exclusive, etc.

    Coreldan and I were talking during the Sony conference yesterday and we both noticed how the Bungie guys kept trying to 'circumvent' the language of exclusivity with Sony.

    I think there was a point where they said, "We've got a whole bunch of timed exclusive stuff come your way.... here's stuff that EVERYONE is getting..."

    As long as Destiny doesn't turn into the craziness that Watch_Dogs is/was than it'll be fine. I could care less about one strike mission that may last 20 minutes or a couple of potentially low-level gear being exclusive to Sony consoles.

    Watchdogs just got those side missions, right? The CTRL, ALT, DEL, etc missions?

    Yep literally towards the end it was so confusing he said "And out timed exclusives doesn't end there, we have two expansions in the works. Each introducing brand new competitive and cooperative adventures and weapons and armor and player gear. Today I have the privilege to announce that Expansion one will launch for everyone in December!"

    I was so confused man, so lost.

    Exactly lol, I went like "WTF did that dude just say?" to ncxcstud on Facebook. With the start of that sentence about timed exclusives and the expansions I was like "oh dear, so it's true, we get screwed out of the DLC" and then he says "...to everyone" :D

    Guess that's just Sony trying to hard to show off and bad teleprompter skills or text. Lol yeah seriously, and I thought maybe he was wrong (maybe it was timed exclusive) so I checked news stories right after and it does indeed come out for all.

    The dude was pretty bad at the presentation anyways, constantly reading from the teleprompter, but I dunno what explains that weird sentence.

    Hey guys! I know I am a little late to the thread (relatively new to WPCentral) but I am here to add my gamertag to the mix. My gamertag is HarbingerOfAres ADD ME!

    I played the beta (all of the paltry 4 days Xbox One was allowed), and while Bungie has not exactly endeared themselves to me with all of the preferential PS4 treatment (I know, I know...it's just business) I must say that I have not had so much fun playing a game since Halo. So... I am getting it on launch day! I hope to see many of you there.
