What could you do with $500,000,000? Quite a freaking lot. Do you see how many zeroes there are right there? You could forge yourself a fancy-ass new mansion worthy of MTV Cribs, and feature on the show alongside Snoop Dogg and Ice-T and other middle-aged raptastic.

Where we come from, obviously, they call that shit living the dream. But for some, a walk-in closet full of baggy rap-pants and more gold chains than Mr T just won't cut it. So why not blow that kind of cashtacular on making a video game instead? Oh, Activision. You crazy, crazy bastards.

As Kotaku reports, this mighty sum is the actual check that's owing for Destiny. It includes, naturally, ‘combined development and promotion costs,' which makes you wonder just what in the name of balls they've been doing to promote this thing. Whatever the case, this all results in the need for 15 million sales just to break even. We're going to need a Call of Duty-esque act of cash-raking to make this one worthwhile.
