I have been playing Destiny almost since launch using the disc that came in the package.
Recently, when Taken King was released, I splurged for the legendary edition to get a bit more bonus items along the way. So far so good.
The legendary edition of Taken King contains the full Destiny game so with that I should be able to play without the game disc, but if I try that, it just asks for the disc.
Is there a way, short of reinstalling over the wire, to get Destiny to fix licenses or something or did it perhaps not install everything from the disc, or am I mistaken in that I should be able to play without the disc?
The reason I want to know if there is a way to avoid reinstalling over the internet is that patching Destiny has been a very slow ordeal, often taking the whole evening + night to download the expansions despite my 100/20 internet line so I don't foresee the reinstall being any faster.
Actually, here is what I did, this may change the question.
- Originally I purchased Destiny as a PS4 disc item at my local game store.
- I purchased the expansion pass to get the two other expansions
- Just before Taken King was released I purchased Taken King through the PS4 built-in store, digitally
- After release I purchased the "Upgrade to Taken King legendary edition", also through the PS4 built-in store, digitally
That last item may change things. Perhaps it only gives me access to the in-game bonus items (which was why I bought it in the first place), it might not give me access to the full game, but still, if it does, how do I get rid of the disc requirement?
