I think the PS4 already has the xbox one needs to show it can and Destiny looks good but more needs to be shown.

No Xbox controller looks like that, with the Sony dpad style.

MS had already failed when they showed the Xbox one on the public with matching laughable policy like mandatory online every 24 hours.

Tatsuya 4031d ago (Edited 4031d ago )

I'm putting my money on PS4, there's not a fukin thing Microsoft can do that can pull me to their side. Even if they do announce better games or a lot of games for their kinect mandatory pos. My allegiance lies with SONY.

Xbox One- No
PS4- Yes
Destiny- Maybe

Destiny Made Over $160 Million In Microtransaction Revenue In Less Than 2 Years

Destiny has made over $160 million in MTX revenue, and these numbers only account the data from late 2017 to early 2019.

Sgt_Slaughter387d ago

That's extremely low for microtransactions, especially for a game that's essentially designed around it

LucasRuinedChildhood387d ago (Edited 387d ago )

This was back when the game wasn't free to play.

The figures are from November 2017 to February 2019 (1 year and 4 months).

Based on that projection, the MTX revenue for Destiny 2 likely would have been closer to ~$240m for 2 years.

Not sure if premium expansions are included in that figure either although ... I'd hope that they are though and that most of the revenue was for actual content like Forsaken.

People spend way too much money on cosmetics.

Rude-ro387d ago (Edited 387d ago )

Seasons($10 and just got bumped to $12) and dungeon keys($10 each, two a year) are through the eververse(micro transaction) store.
So for those two years, in order to play a season, you would pay through micro transactions.

Bungie Marathon will be worse since it's designed around it as well

Kurt Russell386d ago

It makes me sad to agree... but at the same time I am looking forward to giving it a go. Destiny 2 is so far in, I find it difficult to figure out what I am meant to do first.

I think FIFA alone makes over $1bn a year from mtx

anast387d ago

FIFA promotes a worldwide sport. It should make more money than destiny.

CantThinkOfAUsername387d ago (Edited 387d ago )

Let's compare something similar. Apex Legends and its ridiculous $18/$40 skins make EA a billion each year.

z2g387d ago

For as much as ppl complain how much they hate microtransactions, they sure don’t act like it. No wonder they aren’t going anywhere.

spicelicka387d ago

By "people" you're referring to millions and millions of people. Obviously the ones complaining aren't necessarily the same as the ones spending all that money.

There's millions that purchase MTX and there's nothing we can do about it

I've been thinking about playing through D1 again before it goes away...

CobraKai538d ago

That’s the sad reality of a game like this. I bought it, invested lots of money, and it can go away at anytime. I still think this was more fun than 2.

jeromeface537d ago

prob because 2 is a grindfest slog

spoonard535d ago

That's the bummer of 'games as a service'.
