One more quick note: The Iron Banner event is happening again this week - there are three sessions today (the first has already begun!) and three tomorrow. Test yourself!
Apologies for not posting this yesterday; it means if you haven't been paying attention, you may have missed out on an evening of Destiny. Bungie has opened the Beta to everyone - not just people with a code. Simply download the Beta on the console of your choice, and get playing! You have until the end of the weekend... and Bungie has made it clear that if you are online on Saturday, it will be worth your while when the game releases:
Yes - especially on the 26th. You want to be there for that day. Report for Beta testing duty at 2PM Pacific. Your rewards will be handsome and permanent.
