We’ve been sat waiting for our Destiny beta code to appear all day, so it’s not exactly surprising that the PlayStation Network has collapsed mere moments after the first batch have gone out. Sony’s online status page notes that it’s “currently experiencing high volume and users may experience issues when connecting to the service”. Yeah, like the fact that we can’t redeem our blasted code.

In all reality, we’re sure that things will settle down over the coming hour or so. Alas, while we appreciate that these scenarios are almost impossible to predict, the platform holder’s going to have to get much better at cutting them to a minimum, because we feel like this happens far too often – especially where big games are concerned.
