Destiny make hurt Activision's bottom line (Criticism)

I'm not a fan of microtransactions, but when they're purely cosmetic, are they really that bad?

I would argue that yes, they are. Even if it’s not really that different in practice, it still makes me feel like I’m not getting the full experience without paying even more money.

Destiny strikes a decent balance with earning Bright Engrams, but it still feels worse than having all those items spread throughout the game. I try to play the game and see Bright Engrams as neat bonus things I get occasionally, but when so many of the truly cool and unique cosmetic items are locked in the ecosystem, it does become a little difficult.

Fortunately that seems to be one of the things Bungie is looking at changing with ships and ghosts and such being put into regular loot tables. I’m optimistic.
