One Hardcore Dude Has Managed to Beat Crota's End Without Firing Off a Single Shot

Anybody who has attempted Destiny's raids alone will know the pain and tear inducing difficulty that leads to rage quitting and throwing the controller across the room, so it's all the more impressive that one chap has managed to go through the hardest raid in the game (so far) all on his lonesome.

The sad part is that people actually pay/donate money to streamers.

I mean...why?

Good for them I guess.

plut0nash3272d ago

I meant the fact that it was beaten with Melee :) Streamers can be good, because they can be fun to watch :P

BC_Master_Haze3272d ago

Don't really see why it's sad, it's their passion and someone is generous enough to let them attempt to do it for a living

Yardragon3272d ago (Edited 3272d ago )

this is just the last check point.
to add, "that's a little sad" agreed.

RocknRolla3272d ago

Hahahah what a sad title and even sadder this site is doing a kotaku now. Only site that keeps posting this stuff is kotaku so dualshockers definitely struggling for hits and this is the last checkpoint. So better to update the title and not mislead readers. He beat it from the last checkpoint. People might think he beat the whole thing with out firing. Sensational headline.

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_Slaughter270d ago

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

LucasRuinedChildhood270d ago (Edited 270d 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.

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

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

anast270d ago

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

CantThinkOfAUsername270d ago (Edited 270d ago )

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

z2g270d 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.

spicelicka270d 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
