Microsoft will hold a special event at their retail store in San Diego on Wednesday to celebrate the start of the four day beta test for Destiny on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles.

The event will be held at 5 pm local time at the Microsoft Store located in the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego. The first 100 people who show up will get keys to download and play the beta test of Bungie's upcoming and long awaited sci-fi shooter, which will last from that date until July 26th. The store itself will have people playing the beta version and live streaming their efforts to Twitch. People who wish to attend can RSVP by going to the official Microsoft Store Facebook page.

After the Destiny event is over, the same Microsoft Store will place host to yet another gathering sponsored by the gaming hardware and accessory maker Razer to help promote their Razer Blade gaming notebook. That event lasts from 6 to 8:30 pm, followed by an after party from 9 to 11 with a DJ, refreshments and raffles all night.

If you will be in San Diego on Wednesday, do you plan to drop by the Microsoft Store for all the festivities?
