In a statement released early this morning, game publisher Activision revealed that gamers have spent over one hundred million hours playing the recently released Destiny. This is equivalent to watching the entirety of National Treasure more than forty-five million times, though arguably less interesting. Critics have panned the game, which goes to show just how little quality matters when you can get your entire fan base to preorder the game on inflated promises.
In the same statement, Activision also claimed that they have made over $325 million dollars worldwide in the first week of the game's release. To put that in perspective, you could donate gamer fuel to over sixty-five million nutrient-starved Call of Duty players with that money. While it's hard to tell which would be better for humanity in the long run, you certainly can't eat Destiny.
There's no doubt we'll be seeing more from this game shortly, as Activision isn't one to let such a milestone as "best selling new video game franchise of all time" go unnoticed.
