Destiny Sells $500 Million & Tops Records

Destiny, considered to be one of the biggest games to come out in 2014, is finally upon us.  While everyone eagerly plays away, some ask the question:  How well did Destiny sell on its first day?  In response to that, Activision has released a statement on the matter and the results are outstanding.

Destiny has sold more than $500 million in its first day of release, making it the largest new game franchise in history.  It has also taken the reigns for being the highest-selling digital console download and is on track to becoming Activision’s next billion dollar franchise.
