Destiny pops up on the Steam Database but is likely a mistake

Destiny pops up on the Steam Database but is likely a mistake

Moreover, the button "Purchase on Steam" was working to buy the currency for the Steam version of Destiny you can have right now.

Weird, right? Cue arch comments about publisher greed for letting you buy microtransactions in a game that doesn't exist, even if they're only charging a cent.

When Destiny launched on consoles in 2014, PC gamers were left disappointed after Bungie decided not to release the game on PC. The question is though, why? A few users were even able to buy Destiny Silver through Steam.

The first conclusion someone might come to is that Destiny 1 may be making its way onto Steam shortly.

What's more, there are actually two links you can use to purchase Silver, one for $0.01, and another for $20, the latter gets you 2000 Silver.

Japan deploys missile defence over N Korea threat to Guam
Japan has in the past vowed to shoot down North Korean missiles or rockets that threaten to hit its territory. The annual exercises, called Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, are expected to run from August 21 to 31.

We have repeatedly heard about Destiny 2 addressing the issue of scarcity of single-player content that plagued the original installment in the franchise.

Bungie recently ended support for the first Destiny, so it's doubly freaky this is showing up now, considering Destiny 2 won't even be on Steam.

In the network leaked information that the Studio Bungie with the support Activision plans to release the first part of Destiny on Steam.

Another NeoGAF user, JaseC, suggested that it may have been an indie developer who borrowed Destiny's Silver microtransactions for testing. While the app is listed as unknown, the description mentions Destiny Silver.

We'll update the story if we ever find out the real reason.
