I don't see an Xbox One digital download option on Amazon either. Weird.

You can play parts of the game by yourself, but its really meant to be played with a group of people.

The most stupid thing, is they limit the group to 3 people, unless that has changed for 2.

to counter the statement (without reason) that it is stupid limiting certain activities such as campaign/story/patrols to 3 participants I would easily counter that limiting to no more than 3 keeps the difficulty of these activities on a fair level and also keep the player more personally engaged in the game

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

4 friends want to play... 1 is left out.

So maybe not stupid, if that offends you for some reason on this game... but the sucky part in my experience compared to other games.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

I guess you have so many friends music it must be difficult to be able to balance all your play time amongst them

again, I think 3 player co-op for some of these activities is a good balance .... someone will always want more, others less

I have multiple people I play with regularly and we have few issues with the 3 person limit on said activities .... we break up into multiple groups, run the activities multiple times, run on multiple characters, etc

Sure it would be great if they scaled all the activities in the game, but instead they gave us multiple activity types.

Got three, play some patrol or a mission.
Got four, play some PVP
Got six, run the raid.

Personally, I found that with Destiny 1, no matter how may of my friends were online playing, we could find some kind of activity that worked for all of us.

With the PC open beta starting, a lot of positive articles out there on how well it looks and plays. Really looking forward to getting to play this with a keyboard/mouse

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)

I'm going to agree the player limits are annoying. Never found them great in D1, and now it's worse in D2. Even if you weren't set for a raid you could do single MP team with 6 people. Now with 4 that's out the window.

I'm sure we'll be able to figure out activities, but I do wish more of them would scale for players; including options for more than 6.

Do you think all of the commercials for mobile games are in game footage as well? If so, they are doing a hell of a job on Arnold & that one hot chick.
