How to Sign Up & Download the PS3 & PS4 Destiny Beta



The PS3 & PS4 Destiny beta starts today and this guide will show you how to sign up for the early access and how to get the PS3 and PS4 Destiny beta download.

Update: You can play the Destiny beta without a pre-order. You just need to download it and start playing.

You need to pre-order Destiny for the PS3 & PS4 Destiny beta access. After you do that you’ll get a Destiny Beta key or code that you’ll enter online, which will unlock your PS43 and PS4 Destiny beta download codes for the console you pre-ordered on. Tis includes Destiny Special editions.

One pre-order unlocks three  download codes, so you can share with a friend who wants to get in on the action without pre-ordering the game. If you own multiple consoles you’ll need to pre-order on each since the PS4 Destiny download codes will only work on the PlayStation consoles.

We shared where to pre-order Destiny for access to the PS4 Destiny beta, but this will go into the registration and download process so you know what to expect when the Destiny beta starts, or when you get home from work and want to play without wasting time on any technical issues or hangups.

      Same happened for me. when i looked for info on why is because there was a high volume of users trying to get online at the same time. but i just kept refreshing until it finally went through.

    Ok guys whoever is having trouble with this i figured it out. I kept clicking the link to sign it and it wouldnt let me of course but you have to keep exiting the page and re-clicking. My guess is that its crashing for so many people trying to go on it. Keep trying until you successfully sign in and get your code. It took me a good 10-15 min but it was worth it. Destiny here I come :)

    PS4 code *works* on PS3’s PS Store for redemption…but you cannot download a PS3 version of the beta by redeeming a PS4 beta code.

    Once again, I hate to say this, but a PS3 beta doesn’t become accessible by redeeming a PS4 beta key.

    I really wanted to test out both versions and compare the differences to my friends’ faces to convince them to buy a PS4 finally.

    I bought my pre-ordered version of destiny, and got a beta code, but I’m being denied access to the beta.
    The following message appeared when i attempted to input my code (The Prepaid Card code you entered is incorrect or is no longer valid). (this is my redeem code for the playstation store btw)
    I am not happy.

    I’ve gotten several Destiny Beta codes, ALL 12 FREAKING DIGITS

    I’m looking at a freaking e-mail that is inviting me with a 12 digit freaking code but the stupid site keeps saying 9 digit and won’t accept the 12 digit at all.

    Great freaking customer service at bungie. Not 1 contact for them

      When you get a twelve digit code you need to redeem it on your PlayStation store. My friend had the same problem until i looked at it and told him that would work for PlayStation and now he is on the beta.
