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).
