No, you can thank Robert "the packaged goods" Kotick that sacrificed fun at the altar of profit.
That's what I said. He's into milking. Make as much money as possible. Hell, he's the main reason why Xbone and PS4 games in Canada cost $70 rather than $60.
Welp, since there's no PC version of Destiny.....me and mine won't be playing it.
Well, there's a lot of talk about it. And if there's money to be made releasing it for PC, you can bet it'll come out. Even if it's a completely crappy port and they charge $70 for it (ever notice how PC games cost as much as console games nowadays?), if they can make a buck, they'll do it.
Though, given the middling reviews, I'm glad I decided to hold off the purchase.
they're not waiting long: DLCs will be about before the end of the year. Extra-cost DLCs.
3 months is ages for DLC. I'm guessing it's to build up the audience - don't scare 'em away too much by presenting them with $40 of DLCs they may "need" to get. After 3 months, you'll get the Christmas rush and then you can generate post-Christmas buzz with the DLC and slap newcomers with plenty of extra-cost catch-up DLC.
Remember, this is the era of day-1 DLC.
