Bungie Pokes Fun at the Apollo 11's Moon Landing with Destiny's Stats Easter Egg

One of the favorite topics of discussion between conspiracy theorists is the allegation that the Apollo 11 never really landed on the moon, but that the whole affair was staged. Incidentally, the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of the landing were held just a few days ago.

Looks like Bungie was in a satirical mood when they created the infographic for thestatistics of the beta in the latest update blog post.

As you can see below, the infographic mentions that over 851,000 players visited the moon in the game, while 1,969 “claimed to have landed on the moon, but totally faked it.”  The number is an obvious reference to the Apollo 11 mission, which landed on the moon in 1969.

I guess  the folks at Bungie will have to be careful. Someone might decide to punch them in the face for this.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
