Today, Bungie added some expensive, unexpected microtransactions to Destiny that will let players level their characters (slightly) faster in exchange for (a lot of) real-world money. In light of that news, I’m curious how much y’all have spent on the game so far.

Back when Destiny’s in-game microtransaction system launched, we polled readers on which emotes they’d purchased. Now that we’ve had a few events like The Festival Of The Lost and the Sparrow Racing League, the number of things players could theoretically spend their money on has greatly expanded. Sounds like a new poll is in order!

Notes: If you want to go back and check your purchase history, that’s great, but you can also just ballpark it. I’ve rounded up, so if you bought a single $4.99 pack, that counts as $5. If you haven’t played Destiny, you could accurately say you’ve spent zero dollars on microtransactions, but let’s keep the voting to actual Destiny players, yeah?

Let’s do this:


I’m curious to see the numbers on this one.
