Previously it was reported that Activision had managed to sell-in to retailers an impressive $500 million worth of SKUs (stock keeping units), breaking even on their supposed $500 million dollar investment into the Destiny brand. Today, Activision has announced that the actual sell-through revenue of Destiny is only $325 million.
It's often debated that a game's brand worth and the development studio behind it are determined by the Metacritic score – an aggregate of reviews from a collection of websites. This hotly contentious subject has become a topic of discussion recently due to all the middling and less-than-enthusiastic reviews that have poured out for Destiny.
One of the best games that helped define the Xbox 360's era is now available for free. Anyone who has a penchant to get some backstory on the Halo universe before the upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection launches this fall, will likely want to learn how it all began with Halo: Reach.
Everybody has Destiny fever this week, and Bungie is celebrating with the first round of special events hosted within the game…Oh, and they’re starting today, so read up us quickly as possible and jump back into the fight, Guardian.
Activision was quick to send out word that they've sold-in to retailers $500 million worth of Destiny copies. This means that retailers bought enough copies from Activsion to make back the entire cost of the game in a single day. That's not too surprising given the amount of hype surrounding Bungie's latest sci-fi, MMO shooter.
It's been years in the making, part of a $500 million dollar brand expansion under Activision's publishing label, and the next step for the original Halo developers to prove that they have more to offer than a Spartan in Mjolnor armor fighting off over-sized lizards with chrome armor who can talk. Destiny is Bungie's chance to show the world that they're not a one-trick-franchise pony.
Bungie made it known in a recent update that the development on the game is done and finished and the gold master disc is off to get pressed for a production run so that Destiny will be ready for purchase come September 9th.
A new trailer has surfaced for Bungie's first-person shooter, Destiny. The latest piece of promotional media contains textual accolades from the media praising the game for its various features. One quote even goes as far as to say that it's “more than a game”.
The Destiny beta has come and gone, and I’m guessing there are more than a few people out there who, like me, are still suffering from withdrawals while waiting for the Sept. 9 launch of the actual game. The majority of folks sounding off about their time with the beta seem to have had a very positive experience, but there’s always room for improvement. Here are five things I’d like to see added to the final game.
Marty O'Donnell is no longer working with the company that helped put his name on the map due to undisclosed reasons. All we know is that the top executives of Bungie fired O'Donnell and he's not coming back. Well, the composer filed a lawsuit and actually won a recent settlement.
I open my eyes and stare into the soft blue glow of a Ghost. At least, that’s what the flying, spinning contraption called itself; a Ghost. Truth be told, I think I’m more of a ghost than this yammering machine. I was supposed to be dead.
There have been a lot of talk about whether or not Bungie would be able to hit native 1920 x 1080p for the Xbox One with Destiny, the first-person sci-fi shooter due out this September. The beta will be relegated to 900p for the Xbox One, but Bungie wanted to prove that they can, in fact, get the game to manage at 1080p for the final release, as indicated with the footage above.
Bungie recently opened up the game's beta for those who pre-ordered the game, and have allowed them to get in some play time with the first-person shooter on the PS3 and PS4. This week the beta for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 will get underway and there's no better time to learn about the character classes than right now.
Destiny's beta test on PS4 and PS3 is going to expand today with some new content. Bungie plans to launch a special competitive event called the Iron Banner.
