Hello everyone, my name is Brian, I am 17, and as the title above says, my brother Kris is 11 and he has autism and until a week ago his conditions were worsening and my family and I knew of no way on how to help him calm down and control his emotions or even get him to talk to us. That was until he played destiny and fell in love with his companion ghost. He loved walking around with his ghost in his hand and it didn't to him if he walked slower if it meant he could talk to and see his ghost. He loved talking to it as if it were his best friend. Whenever ghost spoke, my brother smiled and spoke back to him. I gave up my play time for my brother to have as much time to play as possible and be with his ghost. I didn't find out until earlier today about the Ghost edition and it including a ghost toy that spoke back to anyone around it and I was so heartbroken when I found out that no one had it online or in stores. I've started looking for a job to pay for the package when I find it, if I ever do, but I am willing to look everywhere and I want to ask for help me find one that I can preorder and reserve for my brother Kris so he can meet his best friend again and be able to talk to him when he can't play video games. Thanks everyone and a special thank you to Bungie for this amazing game, Destiny.

He's extremely intelligent and plays a very high level of hockey for his age. Why hockey ? Doctors told us to get him involved in the sport when he was 5. NHL guys all have crazy OCD things and think things way ahead.. Sure enough they are right. He plays AAA on a birth year team 2 ages ahead of him. He just sees the game before it happens. I can understand the stuff about the ghost as I could see him gravitate towards it. Point being, best of luck to your family, I know some autistic kids. It's a tuff situation. I pre- ordered digital guardian in edition for myself and the ghost edition for my son (ps4). He doesn't know he's getting the ghost edition, if you can prove to me in private this is not bullshit, I will send the ghost edition (paid for already) and just buy my son a regular version. I can totally understand the thing with the ghost, if no one has helped you my offer is here.
