Exclusive PlayStation Destiny content has made it to the Xbox One at long last

There’s a point when you know, culturally, that your choice of console meant that you supported the losing side in the ongoing console wars. A dearth of exclusive titles, for example. A general lack of sales information. Anything related to the Sega Saturn. Your platform finally getting exclusive content for another platform for Destiny with Destiny 2 already out and getting played by pretty much everyone. You get the general idea.

Yes, Xbox One owners can finally enjoy some of the PlayStation exclusive content, which was always meant to be time-limited but apparently kept being limited well past the effective end of life for the title. The content getting patched in wasn’t even announced; it was simply discovered by a player and posted on Reddit. But the important thing is that if you missed out on that content before and were hoping to see it on the Xbox One eventually… hey, it finally happened!

Shame 360 users never will get the chance.

But Sony + Activision can suck a big one for what they’re doing with Destiny exclusive DLC.

I see no point in platofrm exclusives other than to pi** people off personally, the whole “them” and”us” mentality is totally counterproductive when they are trying to sell their game on ALL platforms. But at least no XB1 players can enjoy what we had…. as for the Pc folks :(

I like Destiny.

Fuck this thing of theirs in particular. I don’t care what the deal was: this shit is bad for everyone.

Maybe Destiny 2 on PC can get the Sony content sooner than Xbox One since that money goes through Activision’s own Battle.net now :P Won’t hold my breath.

This was primarily a big deal in Destiny 1 because there was so little content in all versions of the game that one Strike every year or so was a sliver of content to be repeated while waiting for the next disappointing content drop.

Supposedly, Destiny 2 has more and better content in general, so maybe it will be even less of a issue.

Forbes has an article today where it declares the game is buggy as hell on PS4 but actually works on Xbox One: https://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2017/09/30/destiny-2-on-xbox-one-has-one-significant-advantage-over-the-ps4-version/#3d5093726717

what i’ve seen and heard of destiny 2 is bungie has come out of the development hell phase of growing pains they went through with moving from ms to activision. certainly not perfect by any means but none of the bungie games i’ve ever played could be said to be perfect games really.

>console wars.

a highschool buddy linked me a meme of xbox one and ps4 owners allegedly having amicable discussion before a horde of evil pc gamers stormed them yelling PCMR! at them.

not only was i transported back to 2010 faster than 88mph i was reminded that for as long as i’ve been aware of video games as a self aware human being that console wars have been a thing.

perpetuated by our favourite branded magazines and argued on playgrounds at recess and in living rooms along side who gets to go next alike. it’s says something about console elitism that they actual practice erasure of their own brand elitism while coining denigrated phrases about pc gamers that they actually 110% believe to be not only be true but themselves innocent of.

reminds me of another fb friend posting a meme about how we’re all gamers trying to have fun playing video games regardless of platform, only to see a rather extended rant from one her friends about how pc gamers are all every last one us scum of the earth who deserve to die. convincing argument really.

anyways these kinds of exclusives are lame. but perhaps somewhat less as bad as whole game exclusives.

2010? We Atari players used to kick Intellivision players in sensitive places just because! It’s a tradition!

Exactly. Each gaming platform has whole game exclusives, I prefer a tiny bit of content instead.

And this is why I refuse to touch Destiny 2.

Yikes.

If one dungeon keeps you from this gem of a game, it is your loss man.
