Me too. I hope they improve the AI to be more aggressive than in those videos, though

HexxedAvenger3707d ago

Same here! One of the reasons for me getting my ps4 lol

It IS an mmo. I can understand why they dont want to be branded as such but mmo players are hardcore and fiercely loyal.

It should, at some point cater to mmo enthusiasts. Yeah, many may play this game and realize that they love the mmo genre, they just want some fps action involved too. But no genre is as immersive or addictive as the mmo genre.

Destiny could be the perfect blend. I also love that console players get the game first.

Let's hope so, I was kind of disappointed with Titanfall...

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_Slaughter392d ago

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

LucasRuinedChildhood392d ago (Edited 392d 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-ro392d ago (Edited 392d 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 Russell392d 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

anast392d ago

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

CantThinkOfAUsername392d ago (Edited 392d ago )

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

z2g392d 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.

spicelicka392d 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...

CobraKai543d 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.
