Well I'm glad I didn't buy this. I saw on sale in a store for 8 bucks. Dodged a bullet there lol.

The issue I have is that the DLC costs a shit ton, and I ain't buying that shit. If the seasons pass is 10 bucks I'll get it. But we all know that won't happen

I don't know where you live but the season pass is like £15 in the UK.

My account in on the UAE PSN. And prices are inflated on the store for majority of content. So I wait on deals.

A few weeks back year one expansions we're $15 on Playstation and Xbox so I could see the price going that low for the next major sales.

That's still a bit pricey because it doesn't include future expansions. I don't want to keep buying every new piece of DLC they keep churning out. I can literally buy full new games for those prices. I know I'm sounding like a bit of a cheap ass, but Activision and bungie are really suckie with DLC and want to milk their customer base. I'd rather just play the base game than be sucked into their endless loop of paying them huge amounts of cash



What an amazing month this is for PS+! Both games for PS4 are big AAA games, can't complain about this!

Not sounding like a cheap ass at all. People shouldn't have to invest near 250 euro, if the first one is any indication or near 400 if you want the upper teir editions over of the life time of a game that starts off bare bones as hell, if they want to stay in the current content. It ridiculous, I've paid less on Final Fantasy 14's subscription ober the course of over two years and that game has more content per time than there is hours in a year. 

yeah its just too much. Destiny 1's expansions cost 20, 20, 40, 30 at launch. thats a total of 170$ with the base game. its just absurd. and the issue is that the DLC's just dont have the content to justify the price. 

i dont mind buying dlc as long as its worth the content. the witcher 3's DLC for example, or bloodbornes. 



I wasn't going to buy D2, but my friends did when it was on sale for $25 for a short period, and bought me a copy since I refused to buy one based on the valid negativity towards it. They all pretty much immediately regretted it and did not feel it was worth the money. Things in the game have changed some since then, but hasn't changed my perspective. D1 was good and got better, D2 was just disappointing. The other day the Forsaken update popped up and required 45GB to be removed in order to download it. Not happening. I should have uninstalled D2 already. We'll see if they can claw their way back like they did with The Taken King from D1, but the hole they have dug this time around is well beyond Dark Below deep.

Get a second account in a cheaper region?

I have PSN accounts for all the major regions. You just have to buy pre-paid PSN wallet top-ups rather than pay for things directly with your card, but it works fine.



Got burnt with the monetization of the first one. The tireless expansions that cost nearly as much as the base game (if not the same) and rejig the whole thing that makes your previous toon useless. See, with WoW you pay for a massive expansion every two years and it's a true MMO. Destiny is trying to be a AAA pseudo MMO and have quick expansions that cost a lot. I even got the season pass for the first Destiny only to be forced to buy further content to keep parity. Got sick of throwing money at essentially an online shooter that just wanted to keep grabbing my money. So why would I come into Destiny 2 with a nerfed toon to begin with knowing I have to spend big bucks.

So in the AU store (I'm an Aussie) the first two Expansions will cost me $26.95AU (which is now redundant anyway) or I go for the Forsaken for $100AU. So this is just a trojan to make people who don't understand Destiny 2 fork out another 100AU. Umm, no thanks. I can get the physical copy for $80AU but the point is every new expansion is a the price of a new game and they can get stuffed.

Same here.

Glad I didn't buy this trash.

Tbh Destimy has nothing on WoW.



hows the platinum possibility? I recall reading that it became really difficult with Destiny 1 because of the DLC.
