They promised they would never add non-cosmetic items for sale of real money, so if they did I would be very disappointed in them.

They've already blurred the line of non-cosmetic micro transactions.


http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/...ng-to-charge-real-money-for-destiny-ammo.aspx Bungie already denied this report, which came from an unnamed source btw. Honestly I would feel bad for anyone that would pay money for heavy ammo synthesis, there's no point. I still have over 500 heavy so I wouldn't mind if they let me sell them :tongue:

Kind of. The things they have added (at this point) are basically cosmetic only.

This would be more of a rip off than a competitive advantage. Selling instant level 25s, class items with quicker XP gains and the best racing sparrow are more relevant IMO. Heavy synthesis isn't needed as much as it used to be anyway, but they probably could have made some money in the crota or skolas days. Regardless, this doesn't appear to be true.

I think they should do exactly as Riot Games. No competitive edge, no real money for stats (runes.) But you can purchase any and all cosmetic changes with real money. They'd have to do some recoding to add maybe helmet covers or something along that line with 0 combat stats. That way they can hire more people and give us some ****ing DLC.

The worst part about it is if they did add the option to buy them is that people would actually buy them.
Its like you don't realize how much time it takes to rank factions up to rank 25 for the exotic class items, OF COARSE people would buy them, it would save them hours upon hours of faction ranking

It would also save them time if they quit the game. Even if it helped them they have no reason to buy them.

Pay money for heavy synthesis for faction rank increase for exotic class items for increased faction rank reputations? Doubt many people would actually pay money to do that. If they did pay money for that, they would be getting ripped off...

paying money to get ahead in any game is a rip off imo, but most people want the class items for looks not for the rep bonus they provide

Doesn't matter, both Activision and Bungie put a stop to this story less than 24 hours after it was published. That flat out stated it was false.
