To all of you "I cancelled my pre-order" morons...

Destiny has around 2.6Million pre-orders. Gaining about 100k weekly. The 100k will most likely jump to around 500k for the last week of pre-ordering. So figure around 4million sales day 1. This game will be on the list of best selling games day one. Your cancelled pre-order means nothing. You will account for a 0.000025% drop in sales. No one cares.

    • I miss the good old days when people just complained. Now days it's people complaining, people complaining about people complaining, and people complaining about people not complaining. Now I'm complaining about the way in which people complain. Where does this madness end?

      • This thread sounds a lot like a thread me and a friend started about a week before Defiance came out. Now, seriously, I want to know where you got these sales(or rather presale) figures.

      • I think you aren't perceptive enough to understand what canceling a preorder means to some of those "morons." Some of these folks will play Destiny eventually, they just aren't going to plunge in $60 bucks feet first. They may gamefly the game, play it at a friend's house, read the reviews and watch the board comments. Some of them may wait till one or both DLC'S drop and the servers stabilize. Some of them are primarily PVE players who may want to see just how grindy the game is and how fast you can do it all. Voting with your wallet and canceling a preorder is not a once and forever Destiny be damned decision. And whether or not it makes a difference to Bungie is a moronic statement. Of course a sure purchase moving to noncommittal or no purchase is important to Bungie. Whether or not it is a statistically significant number remains to be seen. I don't fault people for thinking twice about where to put their entertainment budget; sometimes I take a flier and sometimes I wait. I'm in the same boat with shadow of mordor-- do I wait or preorder?

                • I pre-ordered this in March2013 & upgraded it to the white PS4 bundle when that was announced, & just pre-ordered the two expansions at gamestop, but found the beta boring, & quit after a week, whereas I've been playing GTAonline daily since mid November2013. I know its a beta, & was using the current-gen PS3 & not a next-gen, but it looked like crap, the speeders are just star wars rip-offs, even sound the same, & if there is controllable ship travel, TBH, I think I'll just get No Man's Sky instead, & upgrade my GTA5 to next-gen in november.

                  • And a lot of people dropping their pre-order adds up to a lot more than that. You're just butthurt because some people don't like what you're head-over-heels in love with.

                      Let them cancel preorders. Maybe some of them will be Limited or Ghost Editions, and someone else can upgrade. :)
