Taken from the weekly update 22/8 [quote] ninjadragonkllr What time will the servers be open for the public in North America and worldwide? When it is September 9th somewhere in the world, and you have access to your very own version of Destiny, it will be time for you to create a character that will keep you company for a good, long time. Retailers will stick to time-zones. Our servers won’t know the difference. Retailers will break street date. Our servers won’t. [/quote] So it is confirmed that people who have their copy of Destiny will be able to play on the 9th at 12 am their time-zones. This is spectacular news seeming I am Australian. So happy that I don't have to wait 15-17 hours after I get my copy. Everyone let out your sighs of relief and cheers of joy! Edit 1: it seems that people keep talking about the last 2 sentences in the reply from Deej. I think people don't realise that he is saying that the servers wont be broken on the 9th but the stores will be from the amounts of people coming in to them. [spoiler]it's a play on the fact that lots of games recently have had day 1 server issues[/spoiler] Edit 2: please disregard my first edit. I hadn't heard the term be used like that before. I took a symbolic approach.
