A game like Destiny is basically begging for microtransactions, so no big surprise.

The game keeps evolving.

As long as it's just for emote or other none game changing things it should be ok, once they start making it to upgrade your gear quicker, or to just buy gear the game will totally go down hill. I know Social Media is out to string Bugige up about this, but no big surprise there.

Normal corse of action for any mmo. The money supliments the cost of a live team. Totally fine with this.

We're supposedly getting future quests for free, based on these emote sales alone. It has my seal of approval and I might even buy some emotes.

Agreed.  In fact the more emotes sold the better for all gamers.  Live teams are incredibly expensive and without a monthly sub cost like most MMOs they are probably going to need to sell a lot of silly emotes.  It works great for games like GW2 and SWTOR so I'm sure it will be fairly successful.

my only issue is destiny is not as good as other MMO's, I think for the moment its all rainbows and sunshine, the moment they start charging for guns and other stuff like missions and things like that, im out. Id much rather have an expansion to pay for in lumps then 47 million small pieces of a game. 

we shall see how it goes i guess

I am fine with this as long as the "silver" is not required for advancing in normal game play.  Bungie said as much in their news blurb. We shall see.  Besides, I like the idea of all those Timmies out there subsdizing the game -- "but Mom I need some more Silver so I can flip this guy off."
