So I thought of a fun contest to play. Now that it seems that Bungie may have decided on the release date for Destiny, let's try and guess when Destiny is going to be released!

Here are the rules: Guess one day in 2014 that you think will be the release date for Destiny. You cannot pick the same date as another person. No changing your initial guess after you've guessed. Entries must be entered by October 1st at midnight (meaning the night of September 31st). I will give out a prize based on whoever is the closest. If there is a tie the value of the prize will be split into two lesser prizes (we can only have a two person tie based on people not being able to pick the same date). There will only be one prize given out to the person who is the closest (or two if there is a tie), and the closer you are to the final release date the better prize will be. If on the off-chance Bungie reveals the release date before October 1st the contest is null and void. And obviously if you have inside information you do not qualify. That means you Bungie people! Although feel free to announce exclusively here when Destiny will be released on October 1st! :)

List of prizes:
Guess the actual release date: Next-gen console of your choice with Destiny (special edition if one exists) to be given on the release date of Destiny
Within 1 week: Copy of Destiny on platform of your choice with a year of XBox Live/Playstation Plus (or whatever the Playstation online service ends up being called) to be given on the release date of Destiny
Within 2 weeks: Copy of Destiny on platform of your choice to be given on the release date of Destiny
Within 1 month: A Destiny t-shirt and a Destiny poster both of your choice

If no one can get within a month I'll figure something else out as a prize. Please if you are participating make your guess the subject of your reply for my sake.

In my defense, I tried to pick a Tuesday before even seeing your choice but failed quite badly. (The 24th of this year is a Tuesday…)

Are these crimes going to be transparent like some sort of invisible man out for revenge? Or transparent, as in the opposite of an opaque thing, which while hard to see through is much easier to spot from a distance. Or transparent like in transparent aluminum, a strong useful material which hasn't been invented yet?

If by some chance I do end up winning this, I'll take the 'within 1 month' prize. There's no way I can wait for shipping to play this and I do plan on getting the special edition if there is one announced.

Personally I think based on how long they have waited after announcing the last 3 games it'll be Q3 at the latest. But it's also a much bigger game so who knows. I would also be sad if it was Q4.

If the trailer hadn't already technically been released, I would allow it, but the trailer was posted even on the forum just before you guessed, sorry.
