Many of us were giddy like school girls to get our keys and jump right into the action. After an initial download of around six to seven gigabytes, it was time to jump into the online world of Bungie’s new shooter, and see what it’s made of. Just keep in mind that this is the very game that Activision is reportedly spending $500 million on all inclusive, and it needs to sell around 15-16 million units to just break even, which prompted a big discussion among us back in early May. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that there is a hell of a lot riding on Destiny, and all of it will depend on its ability to attract players for a long term investment."
