Bungie bans Destiny players with modded consoles The BanHammer has been 'a-swingin', according to the Bungie website as it fights against players with modified consoles.
Banning players that use modified consoles is a fairly common practice usually justified with concerns about piracy and also modding that can lead to unfair advantages in online gaming. Destiny players that have logged in using modified consoles recently may not be able to do so again.

"We routinely review Banhammer actions to ensure that they are applied accurately and fairly," the official Bungie site reads.

"A review of the bans applied over the last week shows that all of the affected accounts had logged into Destiny on a modified console at some point."

I haven't been keeping up with the console modding scene for a few years now since going back to pc gaming. So the current-gen consoles are already cracked, or is Destiny available on last-gen?

Destiny is on all four consoles. No PC though......likely never.


Modding consoles is a death warrant and those that do so deserve bans. Cheatin' MOFOs!!

Modified consoles doesn't mean cheating, but you'd be stupid not to expect a ban when going online with a modded console.
