Why it matters: Bungie now accepts pre-orders for a Destiny series-based toaster, which should be perfect with Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox Series X mini-fridge. It’s a bit pricey at $ 49.99, but dedicated Destiny fans probably won’t care too much.
Back in June 2020, Bungie participated in the Gaming Community Expo 2020 Charity Marathon. The developer said at the time that if they managed to raise at least $ 777,777.77, they would look into offering an official Destiny toaster.
With the help of the Destiny community, they were able to raise $ 800,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Mission accomplished.
Bungie kept its promise and now accepts pre-orders for the Destiny toaster, a two-slice unit priced at $ 84.99.
To sweeten the deal, Bungie throws in a free sandwich holder with every purchase. You also get a free Destiny 2 emblem in the game when you pre-order. In addition, Bungie will donate 10 percent of the profits from the sale of the Destiny toaster to St. Jude.
We have seen an influx of gaming-themed devices in recent memory.
Earlier this month, Microsoft said it would launch the Xbox Mini X refrigerator in time for the holidays. In 2019, Razer confirmed that it was moving forward with Project Breadwinner. The Razer toaster was originally an April Fool’s hoax, but as many people were interested, the company said they would look into developing the real thing. That was more than two years ago, and we have not heard a single thing about the project since.
The Destiny toaster is expected to be launched at the end of the year or early 2022.
