Destiny 2 Physical Sales Down 50% Compared To The Original

Adnan Farooqui October 15, 2017


According to a new report, Destiny 2 physical game sales are down more than 50 percent in the United States compared to the original Destiny game in the first month after launch. NPD’s report is based on sell-through data sourced by three Wall Street analyst reports. Analysts say that the launch month of Destiny 2 brought in a lower amount of physical sales compared to the original title by a significant margin.

“The launch month of Destiny 2 was well short of the original iteration by a material amount,” writes Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson in a note to investors.

It seems that Destiny 2 physical sales haven’t just been disappointing in the United States. A recent report suggested that the title’s first-week physical sales in the United Kingdom registered a 58 percent year over year declined compared to the original Destiny game.

Physical sales obviously don’t show the full picture. They don’t take into account digital sales so it’s possible that Destiny 2’s overall sales might be equal to or even better than its predecessor.

The game’s publisher Activision seems to be happy with Destiny 2’s performance so far. It said last month that Destiny 2 sales have “surpassed the original’s records for engagement and digital sales in launch week.” It hasn’t provided a total sales figure for Destiny 2 as yet, though.

Destiny 2 Boasting Over 1.2 Million Concurrent Players Online

Tyler Lee September 11, 2017

Following the success of Destiny, it did not come as a surprise that Bungie would launch a sequel in the form of Destiny 2. So far reviews of the game have been mostly positive, which is why it doesn’t really surprise us to learn that there are many players who are playing the game at the moment.

In a tweet by Destiny 2’s developer, Bungie, they have revealed that the game has managed to hit 1.2 million concurrent players online (via IGN). This means that around the world, there are 1.2 million players who are playing the game at the same time. This is a rather impressive figure given that Destiny 2 was released just not too long ago, and we should also point out the fact that Destiny 2 is also going to be released for the PC on the 24th of October.

Thank you all so much for playing, Guardians! Right now Destiny 2 has over 1.2 Million concurrent players online. We’ll see you in the wild.

— Bungie (@Bungie) September 9, 2017

This means that combined with the number of players on console, we should see those numbers rise even further. However at the same time, excitement over a new game can somewhat artificially boost the player count, similar to what Pokemon GO was like during its initial launch. We would probably have to give it a few months or even a year before those numbers start to settle, but for now it looks like Destiny 2 is off to a pretty good start.

Microtransactions Will Be Returning To Destiny 2

Tyler Lee September 3, 2017

If you’re someone who isn’t a fan of microtransactions inside of a game that you’ve just paid full price for, then you might be disappointed to learn that microtransactions will seemingly be making a return to Bungie’s upcoming Destiny 2. This is according to a recent flyer posted by GameStop in which is appears to confirm that silver will be making its return.

For those unfamiliar, silver is a currency that was introduced midway through the first Destiny game. However for the most part it seemed that the microtransactions were mostly for cosmetics and emotes, meaning that it wasn’t a pay-to-win kind of situation and that it is entirely optional and won’t affect gameplay.

Presumably this will be the same case for Destiny 2, although we guess there are probably gamers who would much rather that they did not have to spend additional real-life money if they can help it. From what we can tell, 1,000 silvers will be sold at $9.99, while 2,000 will be sold at $19.99.

We expect more details will be revealed in the future once the game has been launched, which is currently set for the 6th of September where it will be released on consoles, followed by a launch later on for PC gamers.

Destiny 2 Live Action Trailer Is All Kinds Of Awesome

Tyler Lee September 1, 2017

When it comes to video game trailers, there are many approaches that we have seen over the years, with some developers opting to create trailers based on in-game footage, while others opt for more cinematic-quality trailers with CG, or in the case with Bungie’s Destiny 2, it seems that they have opted to use a live action trailer.

According to its description on YouTube, “Everything you love about Earth is gone. Except for the Last City.  And now a psycho rhino named Ghaul is coming to take that away too. On September 6, it’s time to grab some big guns, unite our scattered heroes, and take back our home.”

The trailer was directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who was also being Kong: Skull Island and will also be directing the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the director expressed how directing this live action trailer for Destiny 2 will help him translate the Metal Gear Solid game into a movie.

“I think for me there is always going to be a little bit of exploration of playing with that translation of active experience to passive experience. And I think that builds into what I’m trying to achieve with Metal Gear and takes the first steps into that world of how these things can translate.” In any case if you have a few minutes to spare, you definitely want to check it out in the video above, even if you have no intention of playing the game.

Destiny 2 Launch Trailer Released

Tyler Lee August 22, 2017

Bungie’s Destiny 2 is expected to be released early next month, and for gamers who can’t wait and would like to sate their appetite, you’ll be pleased to learn that Bungie has since released a new launch trailer for the upcoming game, which as with most trailers, does a pretty good job of hyping up its release.

Destiny 2 will be the second installment in the Destiny franchise and it will also mark the first time that a Destiny game will be arriving on the PC. What’s interesting is also the fact that Destiny 2 will be exclusively available via the Battle.net launcher from Blizzard, which also marks the first time that the launcher has been used for a non-Blizzard game. However given that Destiny 2 is published by Activision, it’s not hard to see how this worked out.

The game is currently scheduled for a release on consoles on the 6th of September, but it is also expected to find its way onto the PC at a later date. Gamers who are interested in the PC version of the game can look forward to taking part in the game’s open beta which is currently scheduled for a release towards the end of August. The PC version is expected to be similar to the console version, but given that PCs can be upgraded to sport better hardware, graphics wise PC gamers with higher-end rigs will get to enjoy a better-looking game.

Destiny 2 PC Open Beta Trailer Shows Off The Game In 4K

Tyler Lee August 16, 2017

Console versus PC gaming is a debate that will pretty keep going as long as either platform exists. One popular argument that can be made in favor of PC gaming is that because PCs are upgradeable and for the most part modular, gamers can always swap out components when needed, versus consoles which are usually fixed.

This also allows PC gamers more flexibility when building their rigs, ranging from low-end affordable gaming PCs, to monstrosities that costs thousands of dollars. Now if you happen to own a PC that falls into the latter category, the folks at Bungie have recently posted a trailer for Destiny 2’s PC open beta in which the game is shown off in glorious 4K footage.

According to Bungie, “Experience Destiny 2 in 4K with uncapped frame rates in the PC Open Beta August 29-31. Pre-purchase Destiny 2 on PC Exclusively at Blizzard Battle.net and get 24 hour early beta access starting on August 28. Begin Destiny 2’s epic cinematic story campaign, fight below the surface of Nessus in the three-player cooperative Strike Inverted Spire, and enter the Crucible to put your competitive multiplayer skills to the test in two 4v4 modes. “

Now that isn’t to say that Destiny 2 for consoles will run at a lower resolution. The game will run at 4K for consoles like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, but it seems that its fps will be capped at 30fps. In any case as Bungie points out, the open beta will be kicking off on the 29th of August, so do check it out if you’re interested.

Destiny 2’s Open Beta For PC Kicks Off August 29

Tyler Lee July 28, 2017

So the open beta access for Destiny 2 on console has pretty much come to an end, and as you might recall, the folks at Bungie did previously state that the PC version of the open beta would be kicking off in August, but no specific dates were mentioned, at least until now where Bungie has announced the dates for PC.

For gamers planning on playing Destiny 2 on the PC and want to check it out first before buying, the open beta will begin on the 29th of August. This means that whether or bought the game or not, you will still be able to take part in it. However if you have pre-purchased the game, then you guys will be given early access which will start on the 28th of August, a day earlier than everyone else.

The beta is expected to come to an end on the 31st of August for everyone else, although given that Bungie did extend the console beta, maybe they might do the same for PC, but don’t count on that happening yet. As for the hardware requirements, Bungie is advising amers have at least an Intel Core i3-3250 processor or an AMD FX-4350, with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or an AMD Radeon HD 7850 GPU or better with at least 2GB of VRAM, and 6GB of RAM.

If you want to take things to the next level, Bungie is recommending at least an Intel Core i5-2400 or an AMD Ryzen R5 1600X processor or better, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or an AMD Radeon R9 390 or better, and at least 8GB of RAM. Destiny 2 for the PC will be officially released on the 24th of October.

Destiny 2 Open Beta Has Been Extended To Tuesday

Tyler Lee July 24, 2017

Last week Bungie announced that the Destiny 2 open beta was open to all console gamers regardless of whether they pre-purchased the game or not. The beta was supposed to run from the 21st of July until the 23rd of July, which is today, but it seems that Bungie has decided that they will be extending the beta.

In a tweet by the Bungie account, the developers have announced that the open beta for Destiny 2 will be extended until this Tuesday (the 25th of July) where it will come to an end at 6PM PDT. According to Bungie, the reason for the extended beta is for additional service testing, presumably to ensure that when the game has been launched that it will go smoothly, or at least smoothly as one can reasonably expect.

The Destiny 2 Open Beta has been extended through Tuesday 7/25 for additional service testing. Expected completion is 6 PM PDT.

So far the open beta for Destiny 2 hasn’t really been well met as many gamers have expressed their frustration that the PvE aspect of the game felt underpowered. Bungie has since responded to the criticisms by claiming that the beta that was tested was an older build, and that the response from gamers pretty much affirms that they thought themselves, and that they have already begun working on improvements.

Whether or not Bungie can deliver remains to be seen as the game is currently set for a release on the PS4 and Xbox One on the 6th of September. The game will also be released for the PC on the 24th of October, where an open beta for the PC will kick off next month.

Bungie Working To Address Player Concerns In Destiny 2 Beta

Tyler Lee July 23, 2017

The thing about betas is that they aren’t the finished product, which means that there are kinks that need to be worked out, and bugs that need to be fixed. However for the most part, betas usually give users an idea of where the developer is headed at with their software, and for players of Destiny 2, they aren’t too thrilled.

It seems that quite a few players who took part in the recent open beta of the game weren’t too happy with the PvE direction of Destiny 2. Many of the complaints were about how gamers felt that in PvE, they felt rather underpowered, which is clearly not a fun experience, but the good news is that Bungie has heard gamers loud and clear and will be working towards fixing that.

In a post on Bungie’s website, the developers were quick to point out that the beta version that gamers were playing was an old one, and that the team has already made some pretty big changes that players will see upon the release of the full game. “The PVE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old. So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting.”

We’re sure that those who pre-purchased the game might be a bit nervous after playing through the beta, and for those who didn’t pre-purchase the game, they might be feeling that they made a good choice, but hopefully Bungie has indeed addressed many of the player concerns and that the final game will be much better.

Tyler Lee July 21, 2017
