Destiny Xbox 360 and PS3 Players Will Still Have Access To Xur- But With A Limited Inventory
Time to upgrade, guys.
Activision and Bungie really are slowly phasing out support for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Destiny– hot on the heels of the announcement that the upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron, will be coming to only Xbox One and PlayStation 4, comes the announcement that Xbox 360 and PS3 players will no longer be getting access to multiple weekly events.
These include the Trial of the Osiris Crucible event, which will not be available on last gen consoles starting August of this year, as well as Live events, which will simply not be generated on Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game from the same date.
In more crippling news to most Destiny loot hoarders perhaps. Xur will also be greatly culled- he will still show up, but Xbox 360 and PS3 players can expect him to amount to far less. The full list of changes pertaining to him and his inventory are:
- Individual Exotic Weapons and Armor pieces will no longer be sold by Xûr.
- Encrypted Exotic Engrams will be sold. These will decrypt into Year 2 Exotics.
- Encrypted Legacy Engrams will continue to be sold. These will decrypt into Year 1 Exotics.
- Heavy Ammo Synthesis, Three of Coins, Vehicle Upgrades, Motes of Light, and Glass Needles will continue to be sold.
So, basically, if you really like playing Destiny, and you still only have a 360 or PS3- maybe now’s the time to upgrade? Especially since Call of Duty has (finally) ditched previous generation consoles this year, too.
Just a thought.
