Destiny’s Defunct Design – Can Bungie REALLY “Vault” Your Stuff? (VL559)

Like it or not, the Destiny Content Vault (DCV) is back and badder than ever. Did you enjoy playing Forsaken, hunting barons, and winding your way through the Tangled Shore? Well too bad, Bungie’s got new stuff to sell you.

But as we look at questions of contract law, business models, good faith and more, one thing remains true – it’s certainly a bold maneuver for the long time video game maker.

Vault of Glass? More like vault of…in Virtual Legality.
