Definitely no way this could possibly backfire

If the guy made it a box game and gamestop issues a statement saying they aren't going to sell the game would peoples still be shouting censorship?

A company has the right to say they are not going to sell a product in their place of business.

If there was something like the developers were arrested or their website they owned were selling the game was taken down then I'd be with some people saying it's disgusting censorship. But a company choosing not to support a product is not the same thing.

This pepsi machine doesn't carry coke! Fuck censorship!

if this is sarcasm or a joke then disregard what i say.that imo isnt the same thing as what we are talking about.coke not selling pepsi in there machine isnt because pepsi is offensive or because of content,its because of business.therefore that isnt censorship,however if the reason coke wouldnt sell pepsi is because they thought it was offensive(which is such a dumb thing to begin with)then i would consider that censorship.

But google is a business....so it is because of business....wait, are you trolling me?

I really wish I had explored the moon more, but I had to get to a housewarming party at 6 and could only mess around for so long. I would love to form a pike gang with some lincoln force duders once the game is out and roll hard. Bomb Squad MC anyone?

so what was the reward we were supposed to get?

I had a spare 1000 glimmer (worst name for a currency in a video game?) so I bought a iron banner armor color thing, and then found out you have to be level 20 to use it. What's the point of even putting that stuff in the beta?

Apparently at least legendary items should carry over to the final game. And Bungie keep going on about "special rewards" (or whatever the wording was) for people who play the beta on the 26th that are supposed to be permanent.

Why not just make everything permanent at that point? I've started getting drops that are above level 8 so I've been saving them in the vault hoping all that shit carries over. Not that it would be a huge struggle to start again, but I have some pretty boss level 8 stuff for my character and would like to keep it.

@karkarov: True, but trust me you didn't miss much. It's also weird they were like "2 hour only event!!" and then opened it up again at least 3 other times over the weekend. Why not just leave it open? All it's doing is frustrating people like you who won't get to experience it after already paying for the game.

Man, I never got any gear from the iron banner stuff. I was also hoping it would be something different than just the "control" mode. Oh well!

I don't know if they are adding stuff to the beta, or if I am only now seeing stuff I never have before, but I just saw some area called "the grottos" that have level 20 enemies, and I saw enemies on speeder bikes that I was able to defeat and then ride around on their bikes (which can shoot, and are pretty fun/OP)
