Rewards are nice. I cant wait for The Taken King.

Think I will avoid Bungie's trojan horse after the first one that masqueraded itself as a deep engaging story, with vast different worlds and enemies and instead gave me a hollow game with no story!

It was everything it wasn't supposed to be. Never again and NO I DO NOT THROW MONEY AT THE SCREEN, Bungie!!!

Taken King is freaking amazing, started playing the new story missions shortly after it came out early this morning and I was getting goosebumps. It feels VERY much like a true Bungie/halo game now in regards to how they are telling the story and in the cinematics. Plus the missions play out very much like Halo used to. It's definitely a completely different Destiny, much different than I expected.

Also Nathan Fillion is really taking on a strong role with the new story which = awesome. Very firefly-esc, as he pretty much is the same kind of character. Absolutely cannot wait to play again after work!!

From what I've seen it's definitely an improvement on the year one content, but I think many people can't bear shelling out almost the price of a new game just to make Destiny what it should have been a year ago. Not with what has came out recently and is coming out in the next couple of months.

@donthate - "Dont Hate" then. lol. Alright sorry man. I had to. But I have to agree with the other replies. This is an amazing gaming experience. Bungie has taken the shackles off of their story now. The gameplay is even better. The loots is even better. It's no longer a grind to level up. Dude, this is the time to get back into Destiny. I'm guessing you played Destiny based on you comment.

Pretty pathetic reward if u ask me...

hiredhelp3092d ago

I havent played destiny for long time tbh. But why is rewarding there actual players of the game pathetic? More devs should do same.

Nothing pathetic about a 160 speeder, unique shader and emblem that nobody can get that didn't play during year one.

donthate3091d ago

Yes, and have it the Bungie way you wouldn't be able to get special DLC if you didn't rebuy the entire game. After all, Bungie thinks their customers just throws money at the screen.

So far i think I liked him better than Nolan. Maybe it's just because i got used to it...

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_Slaughter279d ago

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

LucasRuinedChildhood279d ago (Edited 279d 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 Russell278d 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.

buffig278d ago

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.
