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:
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.
