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.
