I mean, it's a Sony exclusive. Who else would have been to blame?

Marketing yes, but sucks for content that one must wait a year only to have send content get nerfed once all new content is released.

But whatevs, I’ve never played a call of duty on console or destiny...

Most of the blame still goes to publishers who make these kinds of deals. Sony has no reason to look out for Xbox or PC owners. Activision (at the time) does.

What cheeses me off is if this were MS, the drama level would be cranked up to 11/10 and it would dominate gaming news.

Since it is Sony, it is just like, "Meh, what are you going to do"

Outside of the Destiny community who's directly impacted by this, there's almost nothing.

I thought the pc community would be more out spoken of/against Sony’s practices.

To be honest, I have not seen this story other than here and on the Destiny reddit. Heck it even fell off the Destiny reddit pretty quickly (and it isn't like there's much else going on in the game right now).

This double standard is what bugs me. If it were EA or Xbox it would be an internet sh**storm of articles.

Well, looks like PCgamer just picked up the story (of course it is buried way down).
