So, I, like you, have been trying to download the Destiny beta for the past 2 hours. The PSN is buckling under the amount of people trying to access it at one time and blah blah, how do you get in?


Well, it’s actually pretty simple and I just did this workaround myself moments ago and it worked out very well.

Basically, all you need to do is follow the instructions just below to start out.

To redeem a code through the Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) website:

  1. Go to
  2. Click “Manage Account” and sign in with your Sign-In ID(E-mail Address) and Password.
  3. Click on “Redeem Prepaid Card”.
  4. Enter the code printed on the voucher or PlayStation Network Card and click “Continue”.
  5. If the code is valid, you will be presented with a description of what the code will deliver to your account. Press the “Redeem…” button to add the item or funds to your account.

Once you do that, restart the Playstation Store on your system so your download page updates. It took a few tries for me because my download list wouldn’t load.

Finally it did, and when I tried to download the beta, I also had to click in and out of the product listing to get it to update and add the download button. After a few tries it worked and the beta was downloaded.

The main problem I was having getting into the beta was not the store itself, but just trying to activate the code. So if you can’t activate the code, but can access everything else, I’d advise you try this method.

Be on the lookout for a ton of gameplay footage and hands on impressions of the game as we play through the beta. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest on Destiny as we play it as a single player title.

  1. I plugged my keyboard into my PS4. typied and copied the beta code. I constantly spammed the PSN Store, scrolled down and double tapped enter on Redeem code… Ctrl+V then enter… A lot of times it kicked me before I could confirm, yet it only took one time for me to catch it. Im in.
