Bungie has confirmed to fans that Xbox Live Gold is a requirement to play the Destiny beta on Xbox platforms.
It’s no surprise, but it still stings for some players. However, Sony’s PlayStation Plus service is also needed for some “activities” according to the developer, although it is yet to elaborate further.
Xbox Live Gold is required for the Destiny Beta. PS Plus for some activities. Trial accounts will work in both cases. http://t.co/YAe3ekQXRA
