The Destiny Ghost Edition is the premier collector's edition of Destiny which costs $149.99 USD (£149.99 GBP). The set is the second-tier physical limited edition version of Destiny and was released on September 9, 2014 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Bungie has stated that the bundle had a "truly ... limited production run and availability," leading it to sell out quickly and become very rare and expensive on the secondhand market.

The Destiny Ghost Edition also includes the Destiny Expansion Pass.

As an added incentive to pre-order, players gained early access to the Vanguard Armory which included nine weapons, three helmets and an emblem. According to the Bungie, these items are attainable through gameplay for those that chose not to pre-order.
The Destiny Ghost Edition became a highly sought after product from the moment it was announced and quickly sold out across nearly all available retailers. Due to a large quantity of pre-orders, multiple retailers began experiencing supply shortages and as a result, some pre-orders were cancelled; Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart are among some of those retailers.
Shortly after, pre-ordered copies of the Destiny Ghost Edition began selling on auction websites, such as eBay, with bids starting at $300 and exceeding $400. Some completed auctions have gone for $650 and even as high as $1,025 USD.
