Any other dads buying 2 games and an extra console?

Just want to know if I'm the only dad buying 2 games and an extra console? This game is just that incredible. Got the limited edition for my son and downloaded the beta for him. He played it for 12 hours straight. So naturally I was curious about it. (I haven't played or been excited about a game since halo 2.) So I starting playing the beta and got hooked. Went out and preordered another copy of Destiny and bought another console the next day.

  • Im a 52 year old Dad with PS4. Ordered the limited edition Destiny. Both my sons aged 25 and 28 also PS4 owners and game mad. I have been online gaming with both my sons for many years. I was clan leader for (TGBM)509 a multi country CoD and Medal of Honor gaming group. Always had great fun with my sons wether it being just clan games or league games. Plus when they are in the house playing games with you they aint getting into trouble lol. It will be sad day when I hang up my game pad , but theres many years left in this old dog yet ;)

      • My brother and I were super pumped to play so we each bought our own consoles/copies and then convinced our twin friends who live in the same dorm together to do the same. We will see you on the fields of justice sir.

            • I have two ps4's and multiplayer games I buy digitally so my boy and I can each game in the living room. He has a 46" LCD on one end of the living room and I play on a 60" (last year's family xmas present!) and the seating is on opposite walls. So I can look diagonally across the gaming room and talk to him. We are running duel Sony gold headsets for when mom wants to surf the net and has noise fatigue. Happy wife happy life.

              Didn't buy the console but got two copies one for my PS4 and one for my son's XBone. Both limited editions so we are $200 invested in the game.

              • My son is only two so he isn't ready for it. Neither am I. I really wanted Destiny to be the game that ushers me into the so-called "next gen" consoles, but I've yet to get an X1. It's so tempting to just get a copy for the 360. So tempting...

                        • My friends house has 3 TV's, all 55 inches or bigger, and 3 xbox 360s. we generally play games together there every day, but I went ahead and bought an xbox One and a second copy of destiny (for xbox ONE) so I can keep that at home to play when i'm not with them, since characters cross over between xbox 360/xbox One. I also bought a Destiny Playstation 4 for the white console. I'm selling the game to my friend though. I don't really have a reason to have two accounts.

                            Your son is so lucky to have a parent like you. I wish I could have a gamer dad. Mine is strict about m rated games and he won't let me play many shooters. I don't have anyone to enjoy it with. I hope your son knows how lucky he is

                              I gonna have two copies of Destiny too... I've also ordered my second console as well. But it's the white PS4 while my other copy of Destiny will be for my Xbox One. I've got friends on both you see... and I kind of splurged out because of this game (better headphones, new 55" TV etc). Destiny really is addictive. To be honest I'm wondering if the beta has subliminal suggestions ingame lol.

                              • I'll probably get it for the ps3 for the boys to play. I already preordered it for the ps4 from the ps store. I plan on getting another. Ps4 so when I do I'll 're download it to the new console.

                                • My two sons already have their XB1's, my wife on the other hand does not have hers yet. So we are getting her one, just for this game. total, four XB1's, six copies of Destiny. LOL (she will start on her 360, which means I will be on both systems to start) Family that games together....stays together!
