Destiny's Eververse Trading Company brings microtransactions to the game
Bungie's sci-fi shooter Destiny is set to offer microtransactions through a storefront called Eververse Trading Company. The game will receive an update on October 13 that will re-introduce Tess Everis, who will return to the Tower to run the storefront.
You'll be able to trade "silver," the new in-game currency, for emotes. The currency itself has to be purchased from the console's marketplace (Xbox Live or PlayStation Network), with Bungie mentioning that pricing information will be revealed next week. All players will receive free silver once the patch hits, allowing them to test out the microtransactions.

Why do microtransactions even exist?
Maybe it's proof that all of the corporations on earth want everyone on the planet to be driven into poverty and homelessness...
If you're paying full price for a game, why does it ask for more money? For more content? So, they took your full price game worth of money to give you half a game and are now asking for more? Sounds like a shady business practice.
Microtransactions make sense on free to play games. But this is ridiculous.
But I'll buy these emotes, and probably the other stuff they release after these emotes too, if it's any good. Edit: Opps. See your saying future dlc, not past. My bad. But I don't see that happening. Although I'll wish for it too.
