The Ghost Edition of Bungie’s upcoming shooter Destiny sold out shortly after it was announced yet such is the demand from fans keen to get their hands on this special box of goodies that prices on eBay have rocketed.
Prices range upwards from £230 (original retail price £149.99) on the popular auction site, though some people are clearly willing to pay a lot more. A winning bid in the U.S. today saw the Ghost Edition snapped up for a whopping $1,025.
The Ghost Edition of Destiny was available only at GAME and includes the following:
• Limited Edition SteelBook Case and Game Disc
• Early access to the Vanguard Armoury weapons and gear, and an exclusive Vanguard player emblem.
• Ghost Replica: This is your motion-sensing Ghost, featuring lights and audio from the game. May it lead you through the Darkness.
• Letter of Introduction: These worlds were once ours. If you accept your destiny, you will be asked to do the impossible.
• Guardian Folio, containing:
- “Arms and Armament” Field Guide: Many believe the weapons and armor featured in this record are a myth. You will learn the truth.
- Postcards from the Golden Age: Our worlds have been claimed by our enemies. Now, it’s time to take them back.
- Antique Star Chart: Explore the wild frontiers of our solar system. Discover all that we have lost.
• Collector’s Edition Digital Content: The City has also provided you with a cache of items to start you on your journey, including:
- A Unique Ghost Skin
- An Exclusive Player Emblem
- An Exclusive Player Ship Skin
• The Destiny expansion Pass: Expand your Destiny adventure with brand new story missions, cooperative and competitive multiplayer arenas, and all wealth of all new weapons, armor, and gear to earn.
At launch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 owners will get exclusive access to the following:
• The Dust Palace Strike – An exclusive three-player cooperative Strike that can be played with friends or match made. You’ll track a Cabal extraction team through the husks of an ancient human skyscraper, the Dust Palace, buried in the shifting dunes of Mars and face a new enemy, the Psion Flayers.
• The Exodus Blue Competitive Multiplayer Map – A mid-sized Crucible arena that pairs perfectly with Control and Skirmish game modes. The Exodus Blue, a long-dead vessel, once brought hope and humanity to worlds beyond Earth. Here, Guardians challenge one another, forging a new hope and future in the fires of the Crucible.
• Plus 2 exclusive weapons, 3 sets of armour and 3 ships.
So, unless you’re willing to fork out some serious cash, it looks like you’ll have to settle with one of the more modestly-priced versions.
