Would it be right to say Bungie now favors Playstation over Microsoft?

Will XB1 users get any kinds of perks out of this game?

Sony gave Activision a ton of money for all the Destiny goodies, Bungie had little to zero say in the matter. To answer your question, no. The Sony deal with activision lasts for the life of Destiny.

No, they favor $$$$

Bungie has even said themselves Sony received a very tiny amount of exclusives. Just cause they got a few extra ship and skins and a couple missions doesn't mean they favor it, it means they were paid some bucks.

Sony would've loved nothing more than to get some exclusive rights to the expansions or bigger things, but I guarantee you Bungie wouldn't have gone that far.

It's not as bad as Insomniac creating Sunset Overdrive only for the X1.

Very inaccurate. Bungie simply loves the dollars.

Sony was approached first for the exclusivity, so no, it is not like that situation at all.

In bungie's defense, they were Microsoft's ***** for nearly a decade. I can't blame them for it. This coming from a Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One owner.

Whenever people say they just love money, that's assuming that MS wasn't willing to pay for exclusives. Given MS' track record for buying exclusivity, I'd be willing to bet MS offered to buy exclusive content for Destiny as well.
In other words, both MS and Sony offered Bungie/Activision the deal, but Sony was given it because Bungie doesn't less than 3 MS.

Let's face it, Bungie has a grudge against MS and wanted to stick it to them by making exclusives for Sony. It IS all about the cha-Ching when it comes to Bungie cause if it weren't, they would've made an effort to express their gratitude to Xbox owners who've supported their only source of income for a DECADE! (I'm talking about Halo) The success of Halo was a make or break for Bungie and the Xbox owners helped them make it! Bungie gave us Halo fans the finger. So I personally feel offended by them. And I really don't care what any ignorant and blind internet know-it-alls have to argue with my claim since you'll suck up to Bungie's crap any day of the week whether they physically slapped you in the face and robbed you!
When Halo: MCC was shown at E3, minutes became hours, hours became days, days became months and months felt like years.
