People are paying too much for Destiny’s Ghost Edition

2 min read


The biggest problem with Limited or collector’s editions of games these days is that they’re not especially limited. So what happens when something like Destiny’s genuinely limited Ghost Edition sells out? It goes up on eBay, of course. People have started putting up their yet-to-be-released Destiny Ghost Edition pre-orders for sale on eBay…and unsurprisingly, people are buying them.

Destiny’s Ghost Edition is reportedly in rather short supply, with large retailers like Walmart having had to cancel pre-orders, as they just couldn’t keep up with demand.

While most of them seem to have hovered around the $300 price, as stock for the Ghost edition becomes even more scarce, prices have started hovering. Take a look at this one, for the Xbox One, which has just closed at just over $1000 – or nearly R11 000.


That is a heck of a lot of money for a game and a bauble that talks, if you ask me. This is a new sort of madness, and proves just how popular Destiny already is, and how popular its likely to be. Activision’s half a billion dollar (words!) Destiny gamble may well pay off.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Not my cup of tea at all!! Didn’t want it when it was available, also didn’t want it when it got removed and now that it is back I still don’t want it….
    I am wantless!!

      I am with you on being wantless! Can that work?! 0-O

    I hope they subcontracted Nokia to build that machine. It’s gonna take a pounding that rivals the like of Sasha Grey. I bet she stars in the porno remake of Fifty Shades. Wait……. what was this article about? Fappy Brid?

  • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

    Are you FINALLY reviewing that piece of filth kardashian game?

  • Kensei Seraph

    If I wanted to play Flappy Bird I’ll play the Warframe version with my Zephyr.

    • hairyknees

      You have a Zephyr? I only need like 450 more Oxium – the most annoying thing to farm EVER! *cry*

      I’m very jealous 🙁

      • Admiral Chief Dovahkiin

        Go farm some cabbages then!

      • Kensei Seraph

        Argon crystals are worse.
        I’ve got a Zephyr, and a Dragon Nikana and I need about 80 Oxium for my Helios.

        I remember when Rubedo used to drop in 1s and 2s and EVERYTHING seemed to cost 1000+ Rubedo, and of course it was a super rare resource that makes Oxium seem common.

        Also earthquake!!!

    • Hammersteyn

      Fly away on my Zephyr
      I feel it more then ever
      And in this perfect weather
      We’ll find a place together
      Fly on my wing

      *Ducks multiple backhands

      • Kensei Seraph

        Red Hot Chilli Peppers?

        • Hammersteyn

          Yes sir

          • Kensei Seraph

            Upvoted just for that.

  • Rince

    NO. Never saw the point in this to be honest.

    • Wait, you’re staff?

    I mean I loved tetris because it felt like there was a learning element in the background. Like flexing the ol logic muscle. This just makes me want to flex a crowbar into the makers face….

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I’ve never had the slightest inclination to play this game.

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

    still have the original on my tablet hehe
