Help finding a Ghost Edition (PS4) for my brother with autism.

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.

  • Bungie needs to send this kid a Ghost! Sadly almost no one was lucky enough to get the ghost edition. In Australia there were 2 to every store, which went to the owners and employees.

    • Assuming you can not get a ghost edition, I am sure you can try to contact Bungie's Deej via twitter.

        • Sign up for email notifications through Amazon and try nowinstock.net. If I can't find one that way I'll try GameStop on 9/11. They only guarantee reservations for 48 hrs. Last resort is Ebay or Amazon Marketplace. I'll have my cake and eat it too

            • I'm sure this game will catch on and eventually they will sell the ghosts as a toy at walmart. If all else fails I suppose I could make one but it wouldn't talk. + I think I would need Bungie to give me the green light on it (I dont want to get sued).

            • For all you buying into this, he sure didn't rush out to get him one when It was announced. But I bet you ten bucks that when HE played it HE wanted one. Nice story. Terrible person

              • I'm not sure about them actually being sold out. I already paid mine off, I was with a friend the other day and we went to gamestop where he was able to preorder his.

                  • From what I have seen with many CEs, after they have released the individual items inside will be auctioned off. You won't get it in the day it's released but it should sell for less than the price of the full Ghost edition ($150). However this is based off of other CEs that were not limited like the Ghost edition is.

                      • Send me a Pic with your brother, holding some Paper with "I love you Shing Xian and please send me your Ghost" and you can get my Ghost from my Pre-Order for free. No offence please, but i need some proofs. :)

                        • Hey Brian try checking into Best buy at the customer service counter.I went today and finally found a score on a ghost edition after going to gamestop. And actually I understand what you're going through and know how tough it is. My little brother also has autism and all he can think of doing is play video games. He's 17 now and is a lot better with controlling his emotions and sorts. It will take time but braving those tough times will go a long way. So be strong and vigilant. - Zachary

                          • I would like to thank all of you for the support and love! It really makes my Brother Kris feel very loved. My brother has had a great time playing the beta with all of you destiny player and like all of us, he is really sad that the beta is over. I really hope to find a Ghost edition soon for my brother and my family really hope to make some progress on him controlling his emotions and there would be no bigger prize for him and his progress and patience than meeting his best friend again in his favorite and in real life. Thank you all again.
