I have a gold account and can't connect. I believe it is because my account auto-signs in at another xbox which I haven't downloaded the beta to. Keep restarting but I can't get access to bungies servers. My gold subscription renews on Aug. 8th so its active, was playing last night and now it wont work.
i will say this again everyone for xbox one users unplug all or your cords and then start up destiny then if that doesnt work which i highly doubt it wont then put in a game then start up destiny. if it still doesnt work then it is definitly your xbox live gold ran out just renew it if you are out. I hope this helped enjoy the beta :)
