If Destiny is supposed to be our legend our story how come we can't name our character. It seems so weird to make this game so customizable then take away our greatest choice. To take away what we want the universe to call us takes away our immersion to the game we will play for years.
This question was addressed in a Bungie Weekly Update a little bit ago: [quote][b]Q: Will we be able to name our characters in Destiny?[/b] You are your character in Destiny. In your case, your Guardian will be named F12. If you want your name to be more colorful or personal (i.e. NinjaSniper420, Titan Nick, Robert Paulson) you need to change your identity at the source. Our hope is that you have an identity in the game that’s meaningful to you, and that new friends can track you from your favorite Destiny forum to a rendezvous in orbit over your favorite destination.[/quote] [url]http://www.bungie.net/7_Bungie-Weekly-Update---07042014/en/News/News?aid=11623[/url]
Bungie's Eric "urk" Osborne had this to say, "The team thought a lot about how best to have players identify themselves in the world. Ultimately, we’ve landed on PSN ID and Xbox LIVE Gamertag, so other people don’t have to manage a third list of identities (real name, platform tag, Destiny character name)."
