The Destiny Beta started at 10M Pacific / 1PM Eastern today and since the launch there are a number of Destiny Beta problems that Bungie is aware of.

Here are the most common Destiny Beta problems and possible fixes when possible.

No Destiny Beta Codes

If you don’t have a Destiny beta code that you can redeem online for the Destiny Beta download key or code, you will need to contact the retailer you pre-ordered from.

Best Buy is at the heart of this problem, but there may be other issues. If you pre-order from Amazon or GameStop you should be able to get a new Destiny Beta code instantly.

The Best Buy Destiny Beta code for an order we cancelled arrived at 3PM Eastern from [email protected], so look for that address if you still need your code.

Issues getting the Destiny Beta code are starting to clear up.

If you pre-ordered Destiny from the PlayStation Store you don’t need a code. Just search the PlayStation Store for Destiny Beta and download it.

Destiny Beta Download Code or Key

Bungie is experiencing website issues that prevent players from logging in and getting their Destiny Beta download codes to enter on their console and start the Destiny Beta download.

If you can not log in to Bungie, check your email for the Destiny Beta download codes.

If you can not log in to Bungie, check your email for the Destiny Beta download codes.

This is different than the Destiny Beta code. This Destiny Beta download key is what players need to download the game from the PlayStation Store. The PS3 and PS4 Destiny beta is currently live, but the Xbox Destiny beta does not start until later this month.

If you can not log in to the Bungie website and access your Destiny Beta download codes you should check your email. Bungie announced this afternoon that it is emailing codes out.

One Destiny Beta code delivers three Destiny Beta download keys, so gamers can share with two friends.

Destiny Beta Installation Problems

For gamers that made it through the process of getting a code and download key, there are still possible Destiny Beta problems. Some users report trouble installing the Destiny Beta on PS4 and PS3, with complaints staking up on Twitter.

Other users are able to start the 5GB Destiny beta download, though it’s not clear how fast it will progress and if everything worked. The Playstation Network is Intermittently available according to the PSN status update. The update tells users,

“We will update you with any changes that may occur in regards to this issue. Thank you for your patience.

If you would like to receive a notice when PSN is fully restored, be sure to follow the official PlayStation Twitter accountand our support Twitter account, @AskPlayStation.”

If you can not download the Destiny Beta or have trouble with the Destiny Beta installation process the best thing to do is keep trying. The biggest worry of some gamers is that PSN issues will not fulfill a redemption due to timing out.

With this potential, it is a good idea to hang on to the extra Destiny Beta download codes until you are sure your game is downloaded on the computer.

Bungie will likely use these problems as a to fix list for the Destiny release date in September.

    Only problem I’m having is the length of the final installation. The “Installing Destiny” screen has been on my PS4 for awhile now and seems to not be making any progress.

    The people who actually paid money to preorder games should be the only ones with exclusive access. I’ve preorder through playstation store and I’m sitting here on the internet day three of the beta hearing about how much these people who just randomly received a code via friend, random Facebook comment, or random email. People who didn’t even know what it was until they started to notice all the hype. Clearly that’s what there trying to do is work up all this hype but seriously I’m a respectful consumer and I expect to be given what I was promised just as I promised you my money the day I spent it for this bs exclusive beta access. I mean there already having limited amount of time exclusive events. Most of these people playing may not even decide to buy the game they just most likely figured they’ll just ride this horse till it dies and then when the real game comes along they’ll be wondering why there’s so much less traffic. The least I can honestly take out of this in a positive way is that it’s still cementing the game down and by the time the release rolls around there main key feature of the game is smooth and doesn’t let everyone down. All I’m saying in short I guess is, Bungie figure out who your target audiences area quit wasting resources on people who wouldn’t even think of purchasing this game without having “exclusive” access to this so called beta.
