Halo 4 brought in $220 million in one day.

It says "billion-dollar." Not billion copies.

Mario doesn't have Micro transactions, cha-ching.

Really dunno how it'll make over a billion dollars.

Bungie's last go netted them a cool 3 billion+ dollars, so I don't see why they couldn't do it again.

Plus this time they can sell on more than one console.

I had no idea Halo (while under Bungie) had those kinda of numbers! Crazy.

@Battletorn

How could you not know. From 2001 - 2007/8 Halo was the biggest thing in gaming. It wasn't until Modern Warfare was released that the COD series became the force that it is now

Not really - I don't think.

Basically, what they're trying to say is, Destiny has the potential to replace Call of Duty. (or Halo)

fermcr1783d ago

Star Wars: The Old Republic also had the potential to be a billion-dollar series... and look what happened.

die_fiend1783d ago

Due to poor mechanics. Can you see bungie making a game with poor shooting mechanics?

dark-hollow1783d ago

I liked what they showed at E3 and look forward to hearing more about it.

Destiny could be the next cash cow for Activision

Here's my reasons
1)Bungie
2)Halo creators first game on PS brand hardware
3)fresh style of shooter on consoles

2) being made for Xbone as well so constrained

Martywren1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

Activision+ Destiny x dlc = money pit. I still looking forward too this game

LogicStomper1783d ago

Woah, so Bungie weren't kidding when they mention world domination years ago.
