Bungie bans gamers playing Destiny on modded consoles

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Anyone playing Destiny on a modded console risks an immediate and outright ban, Bungie said this week.

While not explicitly saying modded consoles were behind cheating in the sci-fi shooter, it's plainly implied.

"Something else that deserves mention is that the BanHammer has been a-swingin'." the studio wrote in its regular weekly update."Ninja Justice is always swift and final.

"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," Bungie said. "Play nice! And use the boxes that your favorite retailer 'gave' you."

Destiny is available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in addition to the current console generation. YouTube searches easily turn up videos showcasing cheats using modded consoles from the last generation.
