PowerUp! - "The new Iron Banner emote in Destiny 2 is available for purchase from the Eververse. Guardians are able to pay 1100 Silver, which equates to about $10 USD and $14.95 AUD."
What an absolutely awful deal. I play Destiny 2 but refuse to spend money on this predatory garbage.
I think bungie can put this emote where the sun doesnt shine. Right UP there.
Not surprised Bungie has sold its soul.
Bungie never fails to amaze me. It's like every time they do something stupid I say to myself "This has to be the last time.. right?"
Call me backwards, but I've never been about microtransactions for items you're able to earn in game, but never had an issue for exclusive items you can only buy as long as it's not pay to win.
i guess it's just about making people more aware that these practices should not exist in games. Since these products are praying on the weak. I don't care for it myself, but i don't want this to be a common practice since it is literally ruining the gaming industry imo. I wish we could go back where everything was included and when dlc was really adding something to do the game without it being pre-planned. I guess those days are pretty much numbered though.
How is a limited edition emote item "praying on the week"? It's not a "chance" or "gambling" it's hey here is an emote we are only selling during this period. It cost $10 if you want it. That is just offering something for sale for a limited time. Loot boxes I can understand but this is the equivalent of just shopping. My only complaint with this garbage is it's F2P practices in a P2P game.
I agree with Backwards. If it's not giving the sucker who paid for an emote in a video game any advantage, who cares? Let them have it.
What in the ever living f*k!?
On one hand this is better than 10 for a chance to receive aka loot boxes. On the other hand, it sucks because you only see these type of items in free to play games for prices like this. If bungie put more effort into making their game fun than these crazy practices, their community would not look so deserted.
Can’t defend this garbage. Thankfully it’s an emote I wouldn’t use but how do you justify $13 for an anination. Had it been $2 I bet you they’d make more money.
I've got a good idea, let's single out EA for their micro-transactions and kick up a giant fuss about it ,then lets just allow everyone else to do what they want.
The game is still in such a bad state in many ways and Bungie have the audacity to charge $10 for an emote? How about they actually fix their damn game before trying to pull this sort of crap? Within the first two days of launch, it was pretty obvious the game's matchmaking wasn't fit for purpose with solo players (cruicible) always getting the short end of the stick, never have I played a game which was so punishing for playing solo before. Now over eight months and two expansions later, the exact same issues still plague the game.. but don't worry, we got $10 emotes! Bungie, the once top tier developer.. how the mighty have fallen.
