You've gotta be kidding, ordered this off amazon for £35 the other day! (Brilliant price, heat added.)

Not quite sure what you're trying to say to me but I'm supposed to get the game tomorrow so if amazon price match tonight I might ask if they would refund me the difference

anyone know what the vanilla experience is like these days ? google says it's basically a contentless wasteland, but i'd at least like to pick up an used copy for a fiver to try the game and play through the first campaign before buying the full package which i can't return/resell if i don't like it (DLC ftw). will there be peopleplaying the campaign, and if not do you need them around ?

theres a lot of people playing this game at all time and at all levels, I started a new char and replayed all the first games few weeks back, still brilliant. when I was trying to download the dlc that came out recently I was put in place 284000 to wait for the download.. so there no shortage of players at any one time. Its a truly awesome game, highly recommend.

​Well.. I though you buy it last week and open it already. But if not then ask them for price match or just return it and buy from Shopto

Woah, nice price drop

It's not to bad for the base game. You get the base story which is not all that good. You have the base map packs and game modes which are ok and plenty of people to play against. Base Strikes and raids as well. It's decent if you can get it for around £5. Easily find 15 hours of content in the base game. Also max rank in base game is 38. So you can't use exotic weapons I believe.

But the 4 DLC packs do add a lot more to the game.

Think about the poor people who paid £40 for the base game (which was very empty at launch). Then £25 for the season pass. Only to find out the 3rd DLC pack was not apart of the season pass so that was another £25. Then £25 for the latest taken king.

£35 still a decent price. Considering you also get a level 40 booster out of it which costs £25 alone on the PSN store.

Honestly, if you're interested in this game I'd just go ahead and buy the collection. You won't be able to access all the good stuff; including exotic weapons as your level cap won't allow you to equip them.

EDIT: Heat added, shame the price isn't the same for the Xbox.

I know that the DLC is overpriced for Destiny veterans, I'm happy that I got it for £35 (still a bargain). It's just that it dropped £6 before I've even got it, and every penny helps right?

Just Sold Fifa for 30 so this is perfect! Thanks OP.

Completely agree I was not trying to make you out as being tight or anything. £35 is very good price. Considering it's £50 on the PSN store and places like game want £50 for it.

​I paid £49.99 then £35, then bought taken king for £40 and got it refunded, I played 1800hrs so I got my monies worth, but a lot of the play time was grinding for stuff.

Great deal. I would drop on that price for the X1 version, only played vanilla so would be a good time to drop back in

They are available, but earlier raids would be pointless in terms of gear. There are 4 strike playlists dependant on light level. I paid full price for this content as it was released on Xbox One and PS4 and still feel it was value for money.
Destiny has easily become my favourite game of all time.

Not really, although it's all the DLC's the problem is Bungie effectively invalidate all the previous content when they release a new DLC so it means all you get in reality from the the base game and previous DLC's are a few story missions and base level strikes which I'd say are the worst part of Destiny. The story missions are largely dull and lack any interesting design and the story in general with Destiny is terrible. Where the game really shines is in the six person raids and unfortunately Bungie have left the older raids to gather dust, they haven't been updated in any way so the equipment from the first two raids (Vault of Glass and Crota's End) and Prison of Elders ( the three person horde mode in House of Wolves) is useless for current content. Plus because you can use much higher level armour and weapons, they're much easier than they used to be. Since there's no reward for doing the older raids, few people do them now and the raids are complex, it takes time to learn the mechanics and they're fun so it's something you want to do repeatedly - you need six people in total (I know less for the first two but not with beginners) and at this point in the game that's going to be difficult to find.

Also specific events which occurred during the DLC have all stopped since that DLC finished - during the Dark Beyond you'd get Hive spawns attacking in patrol, house of wolves you'd get wolf packs attacking etc.

What you're really getting here is Rise of Iron with some extra back content if you're bored but don't think you're getting a huge amount of content like you would with a normal game of the year edition where there's tons of gameplay time in the DLC. It's frustrating as Vault of Glass and King's Fall are fantastic gameplay experiences and it seems completely crazy not to bring them forward with Rise of Iron to give people a much wider choice of activities.

As a long time Destiny player, you are wrong. It was around £40 at launch (depending on where you buy games from), £35 for the season pass. The Taken King was then £40 and the new one £25.. Oh, I guess I proved your point more. Say £140 I've paid for what is in the package. Not worth it if I'm honest but at this price it is fantastic, just hope you lot are into grinding for hours on end

Great price. I cannot believe they are charging £24.99 for the Rise of Iron DLC, complete rip off, deffo not paying that. Especially as its getting mediocre reviews.

Rise of the Iron is worth it in my opinion. I only paid £19 for the upgrade from Taken King on XO. The main story is short but the plaguelands are the first patrol missions i have enjoyed without it feeling like a grind.

All in all this collection is the most value you will get for money over any game. I still play Borderlands 2 and it has been 4 years since that released but it doesn't have the offerings that this does.

Destiny is different though - if you played from vanilla, you'd have got far more content than this collection offers because of the way Bungie pretty much invalidate each previous piece of content when they release a new one. In particular you don't get to play Vault of Glass properly nor enjoy all the superb Y1 weapons either which are either no longer usable because they didn't get upgraded, they got nerfed (RIP Vex Mythoclast) their class got heavily nerfed (RIP Fatebringer). You also don't get the activities associated with each DLC either, stuff like the Hive Knight spawns and the wolf pack spawns on patrol stopped when their DLC finished. I bought the content as I went along but I've had over 1500 hours out of it so although I've complained about the price, it's not bad value for money particularly compared to games I've paid £40 and got little playtime from.

That said, I haven't bought Rise of Iron as I don't think it's worth getting back into Destiny for such pitifully short content and there's nothing coming for almost a year now aside from some micro events. I'm not at all envious of people getting this collection for less than I paid as they're not getting much for it and have missed out on the best of Destiny.

John

is all the DLC codes? Be nice if it was on disc, with it being the collection and all.

Easily worth it in my opinion. Punted a fiver on it two months ago, ended up becoming a solid player and getting all the recent dlc. Great game

I'll always defend this game. I played vanilla and got bored. I repurchased on PS4 last xmas and joined the psn communities to link me to players. It's a GREAT social game. If you're playing it alone, you're missing out. It's definitely made to team up on. Plenty of nice players out there!

Does the collection actually include Rise of Iron or is this another **** way for them to make money?

It includes Rise of Iron - this is the base game and all the DLC (the Dark Beyond, House of Wolves, The Taken King and Rise of Iron). The older content is pretty much worthless now hence the low price for all the previous content.

How do you actually clock up 1800 hours in a game? I was proud when we did 100 in FFVII lol

Says out of stock for me

I loved destiny. Had vanilla and the dark below then my crew dropped out. struggled to keep going with raiding so traded in. they've now picked this up so ive been waiting for a good drop in price to be able to get back on. heat.

Any reason why this is so much cheaper on PS4 than it is on the X1?

There is a lot of speculation that the next free update will be for all the old raids. Halloween event this month and SRL (sparrow racing) in December. All free so not too bad. They actually updated a lot of the old strikes for rise of iron to the new light level too..

It may still be there but much of it is useless - none of the Y1 legendaries can be upgraded to be usable for anything Y2 onwards and while some weapons were eventually carried forward (had to be unlocked again) none of the great weapons were. Similarly while the older raids and PoE are still there, most of their rewards are now useless and few people will play them never mind sherpa new players through them.
