What PS3 And Xbox 360 'Destiny' Players Will Need Even If You Don't Get Taken King

Destiny (Xbox 360)

When Destiny's The Taken King expansion launches next month, it'll introduce a new capture-the-flag style mode called "Rift." However, the massive update itself could shake a rift in Destiny's community, as some last gen consoles simply won't have the space to install the mandatory patches inside of the expansion

Taken King is such a massive expansion for Destiny, so Bungie is using two patches to deliver it. The first patch will arrive on Sept. 8 and the other will land on Sept. 15, the day The Taken King goes live.

The upcoming expansion will change some fundamental elements of Destiny, which is why Bungie is requiring that every player install regardless of whether or not they've purchased The Taken King.

All of this spells trouble for players on last generation hardware, especially those who play the game on PlayStation 3.

Xbox 360 needs about 10 GB of free space to install the update, while PlayStation 3 needs 20 GB of unused space for it during installation. After the update has been installed on PlayStation 3, it'll only take up 20 GB of space.

The Taken King bumps Destiny's total space requirements up to 30 GB on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which is more room than some models of both consoles offer. It also pushes the space requirements up to 60 GB on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Bungie suggests hard drive upgrades for owners of last generation consoles, but its second suggestion may be a bit hard to swallow for some current generation hold outs.

"Upgrade your console," Bungie suggests. "Your Destiny Characters, gear, and progress will currently transfer if you upgrade either from PS3 to PS4 or from Xbox 360 to Xbox One. Cross family data transfer (e.g. PS3 to Xbox One or Xbox 360 to PS4) is not supported."

News of Destiny massive update and the strain it'll put on old hardware was followed up with more bad news for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Warner Bros. has cancelled the last generation port of Mortal Kombat X, a community manager announced on Friday.

"We were not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned," the community manager said.
Thankfully, you can plug any USB HDD up to 2TB into your 360, now, and install all of your games and game saves to it and play off of that. So, instead of buying a new MS HDD, or buying a new console, you can spend $80 and get a 2TB drive:

I'm looking forward to seeing where Destiny goes when it's no longer held back by last gen. With a strong foundation already laid, lessons learned in the process, and no ports inhibiting development, Destiny 2 should be impressive.
I have 2TB, slowly filling up ... Taken King is taking the biscuit with 60GB

Another 10 gigs of space is ridiculous for what amounts to zero content if you are not getting the expansion. This will push my 360 to its HD limit if I want to casually play the game.

Nice thing about externals, you can never "run out of space" again. And you don't have to worry about deleting and redownloading...
