Product placement for cheaper version of Destiny.

With today's terrible economy, video games are getting more expensive and less affordable. I think this is sad because less people are going to enjoy the Destiny experience. Well, what if bungie could release a cheaper version of Destiny that has product placement? Instead of paying $60 for Destiny, you would only pay $30. Instead of the typical loading screens, you get short advertisements for various products. The default decals for the armor you wear will all be some sort of advertising logos. (Sort of like having race cars advertise Tide laundry detergant) A scrolling advertising banner would always be at the bottom of the screen, constantly letting you know of all the cool products bungie's associates and sponsors are selling. But it gets even better, you will be able to share your advertisements with nearby players. Let's say for example Player A has the full priced game without advertisements, but player B has the $30 game with advertisements. If player B joins Player A's game or encounters player A on the field, then advertisements will begin to flow across player A's screen as well. I think this would be a great way to let users know of the awesome products that these companies have for sale. Even better, if user B decides they want to upgrade to the full game and get rid of the advertisements, they can fork over another $30 for a DLC upgrade. Thoughts?

        • Pretty sure long face has a vagina. Only a woman craves this much attention. Satire aside, I think it's only a matter of time until this actually happens, to some extent. Then we'll look back on these days and lament what the game industry had become.

              • How about, if you have the 30$ version you get added voice over instead of weapon noise like: Rocket launcher: "That's KABOOM BABY!!!" Golden Gun: "STEP INTO A SLIMJIM!!!" Kill shot with Golden Gun: "Oohh Yyeeaahhh!" Ground Slam Titan special: "Destiny runs on Dunkin'" I think this would add a feel of subliminal messaging to entice the community.

                      • Your in the middle of a crucible game and suddenly... [spoiler] This MP event has been sponsored by EA... It's in the game [/spoiler] [spoiler] This raid is sponsored by Walmart, because we know that when you play games, you always need to do a snack raid prior to playing. Stock up on: Mountain Dew .99 for 2 litres Doritos multipack .50 And especially for you raiders: Red Bull Extreme 4 pack 2.50 Because we know it's gone be a while before you complete it. [/spoiler]

                          • Dude.... It's 60 bucks. If you cant scrounge up $60 during the life of a pre order maybe you should focus on something else other than gaming.

                            • Not a bad idea. See, some of them are ok. Some of your ideas are just plain unrealistic, not thought through or simply...well, dumb. I'd much rather save up more money, but that's just my opinion.
