In light if the recent announcement and subsequent arguments over the exclusive Destiny content for PS4, there is a silver lining for those of us on Xbox. Destiny is, among many things, about creating a Guardian. What this exclusive content effectively does is make the vast majority of people on PS4 start their journeys the same way. They've simply hand-picked some weapons and armor from the game to give to PS4 players at the start. This hurts the individuality of the game in a way because instead of fufilling the idea of seeing a Guardian's achievements by just looking at them, you'll see a lot of players (originally) sporting the "exclusive" content. You might be saying, "Well once you level up people will wear better armor and use better weapons", but the thing is Xbox players don't have to deal with any of that. Our experience will be as authentic, vanilla, and realistic to lore as it can possibly be, and to me that's just as valuable as having exclusives that most PS4 players will be eager to take off after a few hours of gameplay, especially considering how ideological and devoted we are to Bungie here on their forums. This is definately an optimistic, glass half-full view, but to all Xbox players, just forget about the exclusive content and only worry about Xbox. You won't notice it's gone because it was never there in the first place. And to all the PS4 players, rub the exclusives in our face, you've earned the right. I genuinely hope you enjoy Destiny and the exclusives you receive, and I welcome you to the Bungie family. It's been a long time coming. This argument over exclusive content it exactly as if the Xbox players are the older sibling who is being "ignored" by their parents for a newborn sibling. In reality, the parents are only trying to nurture the baby and establish a relationship. I hope Xbox players can take a step back and understand why Bungie is doing what they're doing; after ten years of unaccomodation for the Playstation, they throw themselves with arms wide open at them to welcome them. We're better than this. Or at least we used to be. Can we end this argument and get ready for the Beta? Its less than a month away and we cannot have a house divided, for Bungie's sake.
