Destiny players worried the ongoing PlayStation Network problems would rob them of a chance to visit the game's weekend-only Strange Coin vendor should worry no more — Bungie's gooing to let him keep his shop open until Monday.
Xûr, as previously documented, shows up in Destiny's Tower Friday through Saturday to give players a chance to trade the Strange Coins they've collected while adventuring for exotic gear. Since his inventory changes every week, the though of missing him due to PlayStation Network downtime had some players fretting.
Well no worries. As Rockstar extended Grand Theft Auto V's holiday festivities for players unable to connect, Bungie is allowing Xûr to stick around until at least Monday night.
We understand that Xur has been hard to reach for a lot of you this weekend, so we're going to extend his stay. Our current plan is to allow him to remain in the Tower with his current inventory until Monday night at 10pm PST, just before the weekly reset.
The developer will keep an eye on the connection situation, and will extend the vendor's stay further should the situation warrant it.
