Top Games, PSN currently taxed due to Destiny beta, codes being e-mailed

Posted on July 17, 2014 AT 11:33am

If you need any indication as to how Destiny will fare come this fall, look no further than Bungie’s website and PSN this morning, both of which are so heavily trafficked they can barely stay up.

Because of’s current predicament—and because the Destiny beta codes are accessed through players’ profiles—the Destiny developer announced on Twitter earlier this morning they’ll be e-mailing participants their beta codes. So for those of you unable to login to the website, keep an eye on your e-mail account. Might save you frustration.

Of course, even if you do obtain your code one way or the other—which I did—you might find it impossible to redeem said code. For the better part of an hour now, PSN’s been so taxed that the PlayStation store routinely boots users out due to “maintenance,” or fails to load properly altogether. In an hour’s effort, I’ve personally been unable to get further than the “confirm” screen after plugging in the beta code.

Destiny’s beta begins today (hopefully) on PS3 and PS4, July 23 for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
