Activision and Bungie today released Destiny: The Taken King, the first major follow up – Version 2.0 (or Year 2), for Destiny. The sci-fi FPS Destiny is one of my go favorite games of this generation. I am excited to see what The Taken King offers firsthand, having successfully avoided all teasers, spoilers and Twitchy live stream previews.
For the fans, here are unboxing pictures from the awesome new PlayStation 4 Destiny Limited Edition (available for purchase here):

About Destiny: The Taken King, from Activision:
“With a new storyline introducing Oryx, Crota’s vengeful father, an all-new destination, three new Guardian subclasses, a massive arsenal of new armor, weapons and exotics, new Strikes and Crucible maps, and the new ‘King’s Fall’ Raid that will put players to the ultimate test, there has never been a better time to jump in to “Become Legend,” particularly for new players beginning their journey as a Guardian. The Taken King major expansion takes players deep into the chambers of a new destination, the ‘Dreadnaught’ ship, to defeat Oryx, and his Taken Army.”

Want to get an early taste of Star Wars Battlefront? Of course you do! Help stress test the game in what sounds like an awesome multiplayer battle in Hoth.
Here are the details from EA:
“Coming early October to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta* is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars™ universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.”
Keep a scout out in October for the Star Wars Battlefront Beta!
Obsessive Darth Vader fans (ahem, Kylo Ren!), get ready to feel the dark side of the PlayStation 4 soon! Sony and Electronic Arts have announced the upcoming release of the Darth Vader-inspired PS4 system. This PS4 is dominated by an illustration of the villain’s signature black dome-head and a controller with a color pattern inspired by Darth’s panel. Etched along the PlayStation 4’s side is a repeated “Star Wars” logo as well – so this is no sticker.
Of course, this Limited Edition PlayStation 4 will be released alongside the November 17th release of Star Wars Battlefront. Also another Walmart exclusive bundle will be released on November 17th as a Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. Besides those two bundle options with their respective title games, a voucher also includes downloadable games from Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter. Yeah, it will be awesome to experience the retro Super Star Wars again from the SNES 16-bit era. If you missed out on that, or have foggy memories, this will be a fun way to experience it.
Looking to pre-order the Star Wars PS4 bundle? All we know at this point is that pre-orders are “coming soon”, but you can more than likely expect for pre-orders to be available during the Star Wars merchandising assault on September Force Friday (that’s September 4th).
And for those of you who aren’t too thrilled to be supporting this dark-sided Darth Vader design, you can always opt for some cool PS4 skins out there.
