Bungie Removing Content For Last Gen Destiny Players


Bungie's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, is not coming to last gen Consoles (XBox 360 and PS3). This is not surprising as most developers have stopped developing for those consoles for some time now. However, what has come as a surprise to some is that they are also pulling existing content from legacy systems. They have already stopped selling silver (the in-game $DLC currency) and now, come August, Xur will stop selling items and there will no longer be any in-game events. From Eurogamer.net:

Quote:
Xr will still make the trip to PS3 and Xbox 360 every Friday, but he won't bring with him any guns or armour. Instead, legacy consoles will have to make do with the set stock of an exotic engram.

Multiplayer events such as the monthly Iron Banner and weekly Trials of Osiris will also cease.

There will also be no new live events, such as the past year's Sparrow Racing or Festival of the Lost.

There are games that will make players upgrade to newer hardware. Destiny is NOT that game.

Good! Punish people for buying a system and holding onto it longer than you consider acceptable. Maybe they'll think twice about buying from you all again!

Win win!

Bungie rewards me for buying their game by taking away content. I will reward their efforts at new games by no buying them. Pretty simple. Not like there's a drought of entertainment nowadays.

In addition to the new system, you have to re-buy the entire game all over again as well. No thanks.

I can see not putting out expansions for the old consoles. In fact, I expected that. But removing existing content? Why? Rather than figuring out how to make it work via smart match-making or maybe a second vendor, they are just yanking content from older systems, because screw those guys.

This entire game reeks of being done by amateurs. The network code is atrocious (good luck getting two consoles to work behind the same router). Every time I hit a zone change I get a LOADING message while other people zoom right by. Bringing up inventory can take up to 1 full minute. It's like Bungee hired a small firm fresh out of school to work on it.

I've learned my lesson.

and apparently they made it really freaking hard to make maps for the game. So the content is slow because of their own ineptitude.

Yanking content is shit, but come on. Next year the new consoles will be coming out. Can't wait for people to keep complaining about stuff on the 360 and PS3 even then.

I mean, aren't you guys excited about the new machines? Looking forward to playing Uncharted 4: Remastered in 2018? Super Mario Whatever #87? Legend of Zelda: Cash Cow Edition? Not your kind of games? How about Gone Home: Remastered? Maybe Call of Duty: Space Marine?
