One of the most important features a MMORPG needs to have will be disabled at launch for Bungie’s Destiny. The developer doesn’t want players to trade items between them at launch, but you’ll still be able to trade between characters bound to the same account.
When asked why they made this decision, Bungie replied with: “As for swapping irons in the Tower? Nope. We want you to earn ‘em. You should be able to tell a badass story for every sweet jewel in your arsenal.”
By disabling this feature, the developer will ensure that players won’t spend real money to acquire in-game items from others (which is a common thing in MMOs). So, you’ll need to work hard for every item you earn… which also should be the whole point of a MMO.
