Activision has a lot of successful franchises. Destiny will be a nice addition.

Parents need to quit buying these games! This business model was created simply to nickel and dime you, and doesn't have nearly the same value as the traditional pay-to-play model.

Sadly true. Peer pressure meant I bought this for my son and I regret every second it's cost a fortune for onerous tat.

now if only nintendo start using the same tactic and introduce pokemon toy with games.. there are more than 150+ pokemon.. it will be huge revenue for nintendo. given that nfc technology is included with the wii u console, i would expect wii u to introduce this in the near future, it will be another craze like wii. and every kid will want to have wii u to play pokemon.
