Seriously, how much did Bungie pay Paul McCartney to write this song for ‘Destiny’?

In August, the New York Times reported that Paul McCartney, the lead singer of Wings, had written and recorded a song for Destiny, the spiritual follow-up to the Halo series, developed by Bungie and published by Activision. In fact, the musician has a talent for turning contractual obligations into catchy tunes, like Live and Let Die and Wonderful Christmas Time. The Beatles only performance in Kansas City happened on a scheduled off day because the band couldnt refuse the ridiculous amount of money thrown at them by Charles Finley, the owner of the Kansas City Athletics, who went from an offer of $60,000 to $150,000 — at the time, the single highest payment for a single performance. The bands song Kansas City would later appear, fittingly, on Beatles for Sale.
