Destiny releases today across all platforms: free strategy guide, free next-gen upgrades, more


The highly anticipated release of Destiny is finally upon us, and we are seeing a number of solid discounts as well as an interesting new promo for last gen gamers. Head below for a free Prima Destiny strategy guide, some deeply discounted Xbox Destiny bundles and free next-gen upgrade details: 

Bungie’s MMO-style shooter hit store shelves today across all platforms. Activision, the game’s publisher, and Bungie recently announced an interesting upgrade promo for those purchasing the game for PS3 or Xbox 360. For a limited time, those who purchase Destiny on last gen consoles can upgrade to the PS4 or Xbox One version for free. Any of the content (including DLC and season passes), achievements and progress you’ve made, will all be delivered to your new console free of charge.

At this point, it looks as though the free upgrade promo is only redeemable until January 15th, 2015. There are a few other caveats to consider, so review the promo FAQ to be sure which is best for you.

We’ve also spotted the strategy guide for Destiny for free today via Prima Games. It is unclear whether or not this one time use password will continue to work, but as of right now (9/9 11:15am ET) if you head over to this link and enter the code hmnr-nqd9-d8u8-ftav you will get free access to the official digital Destiny strategy guide. When asked for a retailer and date, simply fill in the field with a major retailer like Best Buy or Amazon and use a date similar to 09/08/14.

Target is offering the Destiny Ghost Edition for $149.99. Using code TGLPTPHF drops the total to $144.99 shipped. That’s as much as $204 off some retailers, $5 off the next best price we can find and the best we’ve seen. It comes with everything you see above which includes a replica Ghost motion sensor, a weapons guide, SteelBook, and expansion pass to access additional story missions etc. and an antique star chart among other things.

For those looking to grab Destiny bundled with a new console, we have a number of solid options to look at right now including this Xbox One console w/ Kinect, Forza 5, Destiny, and 12-month Xbox Live subscription for $499.99 shipped ($680 value). That’s easily the best value we’ve seen on any Xbox One console bundle. If you aren’t interested in the Kinect Xbox One bundle we have a number of other options on the $400 bundle that includes Destiny or any other game of your choice as well. Newegg has a great option right now with the Xbox One Console with Destiny and an Xbox LIVE 12 month gold membership for $399.99 shipped.
