Video games are a huge business. The worldwide market was worth over $80 billion last year, and it’s growing every passing day. People are willing to pay a hefty price for one-of-a-kind releases.

Video game makers are aware that there is a lot of potential to earn big bucks.

To cash in on the growing market, Destiny, the most expensive video game ever made, has gone on sale. Destiny was released in London last fall, where fans queued overnight to get their hands on a copy of this highly anticipated release.

Over the course of their adventures, the players reclaim the treasures and secrets lost after the collapse of humanity.
