    Give us our money Bungie.
    Where's the money Bungie!
    You told us there'd be f***ing money Bungie, pay us!
    You know the vig is just getting bigger every day you don't pay us our money Bungie, don't make us have to hurt you. Look what we did to that last guy!

    I'm confused by this analogy :confused:

    How so Cormac?

    Bungie went with Activision, who clearly only want money. Money money money. Screw development time - ship it and pay us, hence why I was sort of comparing them to a heavy handed loan shark.

    I think that's a pretty good analogy given how Bungie have basically been turned upside down and shook for spare change by their publishers.

    Why is there even a shred of credibility to the idea that paying for synths might happen? Because Bungie are seriously under the cosh from Activision to JUST MAKE MONEY (!!!) and that is probably the root cause of a lot of what's wrong right now. Don't believe that? Well I guess the now former CEO might disagree - do you really think that firing him was an independent decision or not linked to the knock on effect on activision's revenue stream of having Destiny 2 delayed to 2017? Remember, Activision account to their shareholders too and any delay in one of their banner products hurts them in share price, and their execs in their bonuses - so they sure as hell had to be seen to do something to be able to say "we've fixed this problem"

    So ... I stand by the analogy Cormac. :)

    While it is easy to blame the loan shark, the loanie is just as to blame for getting into bed with them in the first place.

    Jaysus, I hope it also works the other way, cash for synths.
