Destiny 2 And Activision Doing Microtransactions Right

Pliny looks at Destiny 2 and Activisions “dissapointment” at it’s monetization. After inexplicably kind of defending Activision…sort of, he figures out how Bungie can add a sustainable microtransaction system to the game. The key ingredient?

Being honest and not slimy grifting pieces of shit.

The Predatory Monetization of Video Games – How Money Works

Thank you to Morning Brew for being my first ever video sponsor. Anybody who has watched my channel for some time knows that I will only work with brands I personally use myself. It’s completely free so there is no reason not to check it out at –

Morning Brew has been the inspiration for many of my video’s so if you enjoy my content you will love theirs.


Video game developers are companies with a profit motive and in many instances shareholders who they need to keep happy.

Selling a game once is great but it means there is a set amount of money that can be made from a set market of games. Exceptions do exist, somehow I have managed to buy Skyrim for the PS3, PS4 and PC, but I don’t like to talk about it.

The problem here is that some people are only willing to spend $20 a month on video games where other people are happy to spend thousands.

The only way to truly maximise profits is to get every possible gamer to pay the maximum possible amount that they are individually willing to pay for a game.
