If you haven't yet gotten sucked into Bungie's wildly addictive online shooter Destiny, there's never been a better time to jump in.

As part of its ongoing "Gold Box Deals" leading up to Christmas, Amazon has been selling a number of bestselling video games — both new-gen and last-gen — for hefty discounts. Destiny is the latest major title to get a big price cut, and it's a doozy.

Today only, Amazon is selling Destiny for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for half price. Let me spell that out: Instead of the usual $59.99 you'd normally pay, today Destiny is on sale for $29.99. Note that this is the original, full game, but it does not include the just-released downloadable expansion pack, The Dark Below.

Destiny has its share of ardent fans and serious detractors, but it remains one of the biggest hits of 2014, and the bestselling new IP of the year. It mixes elements of massively-multiplayer online worlds with the run-and-gun shooter mechanics that Bungie is so adept at building. It's also flat-out gorgeous on new-gen consoles.

If you're ready to find out what the fuss is about, today's the day to do something about it. Need some more convincing? Just take a look at the Destiny official gameplay trailer from Bungie to let the game speak for itself:
