What Destiny Weapon Shaders Could Look Like

Gamespresso writes: Since launch, Destiny players have asked for a great deal of features in Bungie’s space-roaming epic. From in-game voice chat, to more content, these requests have varied in scope and importance; but they are no more than suggestions, with no visual guide to reference. Now there’s at least one requested feature that we can visualise – weapon shaders.

Destiny has so many aspects to ot that are amazing. Simply put, if it had taken a yr., released only for the next gen, and went all in on the WoW template, ot would now be set up to be one of the most successful franchises of all time.

Even if they had simply included last gen, but built the foundation that would shift to next gen and PC in the future. They could have used the GWs model or the DCUO model, and made a ton of money.

I realize that something of that scope was beyond their timeframe, that they scaled back, they skirted the mmo moniker. But I really think that had they taken the time, and went all in, damn!!! It could still happen, but Im not so sure.

Still fun, but hold ppl like it could have.

Such simple ideas, it blows my mind this stuff was not put into the game. They have 2 DLC's announced prior to launch of the game, all with their own sets of weapons and gear, yet the make such a limited vault. I just don't know what the heck happened over there. The game is SO fun to play, but they could make it unbelievable if they just went deeper.

And it would have taken a year, 1 year :/ I blame Activision

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_Slaughter278d ago

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

LucasRuinedChildhood278d ago (Edited 278d 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-ro278d ago (Edited 278d 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 Russell277d 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

anast278d ago

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

CantThinkOfAUsername278d ago (Edited 278d ago )

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

z2g278d 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.

spicelicka278d 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...

CobraKai429d 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.

jeromeface428d ago

prob because 2 is a grindfest slog

spoonard426d ago

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