Subject: Bungie Points: Digital currency for Bungie.net downloadable content

concert photography that captures the passion in a moment for artists & fans

I think Bungie should create their own form of digital currency, or Bungie Points if you will. Bungie could charge Bungie Points for content offered on Bungie.net for prices that deceive members into thinking they are getting a good deal. We could buy these Bungie Points using credit cards in increments of 400 Bungie Points for $5, to 4,000 Bungie Points for $50.

We could then redeem these Bungie Points for content sold at odd prices that will leave us with some random amount of Bungie Points that isn't significant enough to purchase anything else. We will then want to add more Bungie Points, but we can't add only the amount of Bungie Points we need, so we have to spend more money and have too many Bungie Points for the content we intend to purchase.

This will leave us with another odd amount of Bungie Points with which we can purchase nothing, and the cycle repeats.

We'll start to see phishing accounts set up to advertise "1600 Bungie Points Can Be Yours Free," and folks will offer to "Boost Your Account to Exalted Mythic for 800 Bungie Points."

I can imagine no better system for currency exchange. I don't know where I got the idea, but any organization that would implement a system like this really cares about quality customer service, and would never be secretly plotting to rip off as many loyal customers as possible.

The profit gained by implementing this deceitful system of trade could certainly help the Bungie crew on their way to world domination, but last I checked they hadn't yet formed an evil corporation the likes of which would go through with such a system.

This thread is serious business.

All our dreams come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity.

Okay.

I get this satire, but is it funny?

I don't think so.

Is it true?

Yes.

Bungie arcade games, avatars, themes for your profile page/groups, wallpapers, videos and other digital content they would normally give away to their fans free of charge,
would now cost Bungie Points.

To access the Bungie Blog, members would have to pay 160BP. They would of course make it 160BP so you'd have an odd number left and have to buy more BP to purchase anything else.

Mythic members are like people with tattoos. Just as soon as you become a Mythic member, you can kick anyone's ass. It really works.

Anyone but Foman. He smells like cheese.

This idea seems to be flawless in its design. Perhaps in time, Bungie Points cards could be sold in your local Best Buy or Gamestop.

Bungie Points would ideally be non-refundable, I assume?

Great idea!
