Edited by riki1kenobi: 8/15/2019 3:46:47 PMWHY do you need MTX in a game that is considered a Triple A FULL PRICE release? Surely you have people at Bungie who are financially competent enough to do a basic cost analysis/breakdown of resources required for both the pre and post production of the product. I don’t know what’s worse, the fact you are blatantly pushing this fallacy by insistence of trying to convince everyone (read palm off) that the inclusion of MTX via Eververse IN A FULL PRICE TRIPLE A TITLE is not only required but that your customers should just accept this as a viable business model, or the fact that you think we should find it acceptable that the Whisper Ornament paid for the development of Zero Hour? Where did the money you earned from the sales of the game, plus all the DLC go? Dedicated Servers? Oh wait, it’s hybrid P2P which basically puts the majority of the overheads on the players internet. [spoiler] This kind of smoke and mirrors BS reminds me of that Nigerian Prince that keeps calling with a promise of riches IF we just hand over our credit card/bank account details beforehand 🤔 [/spoiler] IF you have to rely on MTX to create content for a Triple A FULL PRICE RELEASE which has PAID DLC then your business model is fundamentally flawed! Basic business sense dictates that those running the company have a high level of Financial Acumen. If you lack this you will continually make decisions that will lead to bad choices, wasted resources, missed opportunities and ultimately a disastrous outcome for your company and its employees/customers. This sounds all too familiar when reading about Bungie tbh. However, the whole forced justification of the “MTX pays for content” section when taken into context with the “developing content is hard” modus operandi actually says more about the behind the scenes at Bungie. Would you go to a restaurant that asked you to pay in advance for your meal, not knowing what was on the menu other than “food” and when you get there they ask you to stump up extra money for the electricity or the chef won’t be able to reheat the meals that was in the fridge from a few days ago. Oh and if you want a nice plate and the best cutlery you need to pay extra to the maitre d otherwise it’s paper plates and a plastic spork!? It stinks of a cash grab, and the whole facetious and disingenuous dangling of the “Zero Hour was paid for by said MTX ergo it’s fine carrot” is a joke, sadly being played on all of us who have financially supported this game. Let me clarify something: There is NO justification for MTX in a PREMIUM PAID PRODUCT with PAID for dlc, end of. Been with Destiny from the start and this is the first time I have NOT blindly pre ordered content. Sorry Luke, I’ve thrown enough money at the screen.
