    You know, that's actually a lot less than I'd have thought. I mean it's released across 4 consoles, that's a colossal market share, and had a huge amount of marketing thrown at it. Not to mention all the people still fawning over Bungie for some reason.

    By way of comparison, Halo 3 grossed $300 million in the first week, on a single console that had only been out for just under 2 years (so add a year to the Xbox One now).

    Impressive for a new IP though.

    Does Destiny have micro transactions?

    The game is really good and is one of those games that would be amazing on the pc but hey Bungie decided it was to difficult to develop it for the pc, at the same time as the consoles.

    I have been playing this since Saturday and I honestly have barely stopped playing it apart from going to work and sleeping.

    As Maki said though I would have thought this would have made alot more than that by now.

    A friend gave me a demo and it reminded me of how I thought Tabula Rasa would be!

    For a new IP it's brilliant, EA must be wanderign what they did wrong with Titanfall.

    Most interesting to me is that the raids are being added without extra charge (for now), just need to wait for that PC version to rear it's ugly slow growing head...

    Well duh... any brand/company/title that uses a descriptive word describing their general quality can not be held accountable for blatantly not following it. So just because they are called TrustedReviews it does not automatically mean you can really trust them.

    They shipped $500m to retailers but the actual sell-through so far is $325m, they're two different figures.
