  • As usual everyone in EU and Aus has to wait for the Americans to be awake for us to play it.... typical bull shit as usual why not start it at 12 for each country just stupid, more like how it will be when it launches.

            [url]http://www.destinythegame.com/beta[/url] So the time clock. Its taunting me. It is currently 11:15 am EST for me. The timer is for PDT; but its a global timer either way. That's how time works. If this is set for PDT (Bungie central time :D ) then we KNOW (Because this is how time zones work) that the timer is accurate for all time zones. If they had given a particular time then we would all have to do conversions like everyone is doing below this post. Bungie gave us a timer though. I think it should be pretty accurate, no? It will be available for all PS users when that hits 0. Im seeing a lot of 10am PDT threads (Which is 1pm EST for me in FLorida). If I take this clock and follow it precisely though, then for me (EST) it will be 3AM on the 17th of July. Lets say this is JUST PDT....3 hours behind me. That means 6AM my time. Am I missing something?

                      • What does this mean for bungie's timer? [url=http://www.destinythegame.com/beta]This[/url] timer and the one above are off by 10 hours. If I was being optimistic, I would say Bungie's timer was how long until we can download it and the 10am PDT is the time we can play.
