Two Destinies For The Price Of One!

2013-destiny-game

I haven’t had much time with Destiny yet, but I have a couple of amusing things to point out.  If you buy the Xbox 360 version of Destiny you get the Xbox One version free, likewise if you buy the PS3 version you get the PS4 version free, so of course I had to fire up the 360 version to see how it looks, and after playing the Xbox One version it is hard to look at.

It has jagged edges all over the place, the textures show seams, it is hard to go back.  Still it is nice to have another place to play Destiny if I need to, and the characters move back and forth between the versions flawlessly.  It is just impressive with all the flack that we give the Xbox One for not being “truly” next gen just how much better it looks than the 360, at least in Destiny’s case.

What is also fun, is that if you play between the versions you get the achievements twice with no extra effort.  All I had to do was log in to the 360 version and I got all the achievements I had earned in the Xbox One version.  I don’t know if they are going to close that loophole, but besides just being a better deal to buy the 360 version it is also super easy to pad your Gamer Score.

Other than that this game is very similar to the beta, but it seems to look and play a little better.  I will do a proper review later, but I thought I would share my current double console experiences.
