Destiny game Cube Destiny set some pretty impressive sales figures when it went on sale. Despite receiving less than stellar reviews, Bungie’s first-person shooter RPG game is a hit with gamers, with around 3 million players logging in everyday to play the game. But that’s not all... The average playtime for each player comes it at around 3 hours a day, 7 days a week, while players run Destiny on their consoles 1.8 times a day.

Here are the exact stats:
  • Destiny averages 3.2 million players each and every day!
  • Average playtime is still right around 3 hours a day, even on weekdays, one month after launch.
  • The average player plays Destiny 1.8 times a day.
  • The average player has played Destiny 20.9 times.
Those figures are off the charts, especially when considering Destiny is not as critically-acclaimed as most expected. Still, an impressive art direction, solid core gameplay elements, and amazing soundtrack help offset its repetitive quests and lack of story.
