    Angry Where Did Destiny's 500 Million Dollar Budget Go?!?!


    Whats up guys, my name is Zach Sharpes and in this video I sit down with CraigheadPro (http://www.youtube.com/CraigheadPro) to talk about Destiny's budget and what it translated into. During this video we talk about the development/marketing split the game might of had, examine our overall first impressions of the game, and my preorder struggles at GameStop!

    Question Of The Video: What are your initial impressions of Destiny? If you haven't played it, will you be picking it up? Leave your thoughts down below!

    Thanks for watching!

    Instead of posting your video with a link to your channel, why not just post a simple topic stating what you are talking about then go from there. We are not simple to where we need a video everytime to understand what you are talking about. Just kinda feel like you are just doing this to get more views.

    OT: Destiny seemed a little over hyped and people say "OMG it's soooooooooooooooo original and new with nothing that hasn't been done before!" And I think that's a little untrue.

    Mostly in advertising. There, didn't even need a 40 minute video.

    pretty sure activision confirmed that the budget was nowhere close to 500 million, and even called that a huge exaggeration

    didn't watch your shitty video btw, because you're already wrong in the title and why waste my time knowing you're probably wrong about everything else you're going to talk about in a 40 minute video?

    In a recent interview with computerandvideogames.com Activisions UK & Ireland GM implied (by never stating franchise) that the whole 500 million dollar budget was spent on the "development, manufacturing, marketing and so forth" of Destiny, not the franchise as a whole.
