Destiny Offering Microtransactions




 

     On Oct. 13 Bungie will add "The Eververse" a new storefront including 18 emotes, all being completely optional. The currency you will buy these emotes with will be called "Silver" which will be able for purchase through your consoles associated store. Bungie will give you some free Silver to buy a few new emotes, and other than that they plan to "bolster the service our live team is offering
for another full year". AKA Microtransactions, though they are optional, it still sucks to see another game fall into this trend.


Addition: The fact that some of us have paid $140 for this game and they expect to charge us more for content is obscene. This seems like a gateway for something much, much worse. Like exclusives guns, armor, game modes, etc.

    1. Many people feel the same way, as do I, but Bungie definitely doesn't think so

  2. They aren't gonna sell armor or weapons or anything that will make you stronger. It's all customization.

    1. Hope that is the case, Bungie said they want to make quests free and have the players pay for cosmetic items, which could mean no more expansions, just more cosmetics

    This came from the article, the person who wrote it is making wild "what-if" scenarios, immediately destroying any credit he may have had in my mind.

    Also he's uniformed, as these OPTIONAL transactions will be so that we can get free content, Bungie knows how mad we can get as a fan-base, Id say they will be very careful about this. But I forgot you can see into the future.

    League of Legends uses this model to great success, same with guild wars...
