Only on 360 version as that consoles got custom firmware etc to allow this sort of thing. You cant go online with ps3 exploit as far as im aware and you certainly cannot hack current gen. So avoid hackers by going xbox one and ps4. But it just shows how secure your gaming is on 360. They all go on about PSN not being secure but this is actual game destroying hacking. Imagine this on PVP maps?? This is not the networks fault this is the actual console that's exploited here.

BillmadeAGate1135d ago

Soooo, Hackers gonna hack, that's like asking a fat ass not to eat.

"So avoid hackers by going xbox one and ps4"

Actually we probably can't even do that. Expect to see exploited levels and maxed out gear that's hard to find (and possibly only event related) to pop up on X1 and PS4 since the game save from last gen is shared accross

Edit: actually looks like bans are already in progress

morganfell1135d ago

Expect to see a lot of people banned. More than any other company, Bungie builds back end server monitoring that tracks even finite actions. Enjoy while you can because your days are limited.

UberKatzchen1131d ago

Just got done with about 20 control matches had a level 1 with exotics in the first one and a infinite heavy ammo in the last one. (pissed me off so i stopped for a while)

"Avoid hackers by going on Xbox One and PS4". Xbone yeah, but PSN just got hacked a couple weeks ago.

XabiDaChosenOne1135d ago

You don't know what hacking is.

badz1491135d ago

@ALLWRONG

DDoS attack is a hack now? LOL you sure live up to your username perfectly!

BG115791135d ago

@Allwrong, you must have heard this a lot of times, you're name really suits you...
DDOS attacks don't allow this kind of hacks.

Oner1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

LMFAO! He actually thinks a DDOS is a hack! HAHAHAHAHA! Talk about being uninformed/misinformed...no wonder you are ALL(ways)WRONG!

BISHOP-BRASIL1134d ago

Do you guys seriously think ALLWRONG don't know DDoS isn't hacking already? After all that went through here on that week? Come on, just look at his post history, he's obviously out to sell some bullcrap and it seen he got all of you to buy it. DON'T FEED THE TROLL.

Whirlwind_Fanfare_081134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

That name suits you very well!

OT:Banning players confirmed.

Revengeance1134d ago

Wow so Xboners don't know what a DDoS attack is. You should look it up. It'll actually make you a bit smarter.

SniperControl1134d ago

* YOU Can't TRADE....soooooooo

Killzoner991134d ago

Well we all know that the 360 was a hackers dream. It was a haven for hackers which made most of the online games unplayable. I've heard the Xbone is having the same problems with some games.

miyamoto1134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

Yup its on Xbax 360
Surprise Surprise!

kevnb1134d ago

yes you can play it online for ps3, but there are less modded ps3 systems.

I just dont get this. Where is the fun/reward in cheating at a video game? Why even play it if you're going to do this?

Magicite1135d ago

they like to feel superior?

PONTIAC08G8GT1135d ago

But who cares? You paid $60 for the game. You bought your system. If you want to run around with infinite ammo, double barrel rocket launchers, what's the big deal? I barely know how to turn on my console so I wouldn't do modding because I don't know how to. But everyone's definition of fun is different. I have a friend who plays all his games on easiest because that's fun to him, as I like to play everything on hardest difficultly.

Different strokes for different folks.

Majors1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

That's totally different tho playing on easy or hard. This hacking crap affects genuine players that don't want to cheat and want to earn their ranks, weapons & currency etc Then you have these idiots who have played for 30 mins are rank 20 have the top end weapons etc it sort of spoils it for everyone who's playing with or against them..
Look what happened to COD... people fly with rocket firing rifles.. What's the point ?
Ban Them forever...

BlackTar1871135d ago

I can't believe you just sided with hackers.

dmeador1135d ago

Haha, so to explain to you why you are wrong, I would have to explain to you the idea of "cheating", and why you suck if you do it. Maybe someone else was the time to do that, or maybe after 14 you will figure it out on your own

Aceman181135d ago

Over these 4 days I've earned my level 22 status, and all the blue(rare) gear that I've gotten.

I don't find hacking a game just got get stuff like this fun, the beauty of this game is teaming up with friend and just having a blast doing missions, strikes and whatnot.

PONTIAC08G8GT1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

Wow, you guys are so sensitive. If you don't hack or cheat, that's fine. If someone wants to run around with modded gear, let em, go find another room. I don't mod/hack or use that gear but I honestly don't give $.02 if someone else does. If they think that's fun then good for them.

Guys need to chill out it's not that serious, it's a game.

@dmeador
Personal attacks are cool bro, hope that makes you feel better

@majors
If the hacking is during MP, thats a different story cause your cheating against others playing legit. But if your running around SP with modded gear, no big deal. But during MP matches, that's stupid.

CorndogBurglar1135d ago

And what happens when these people go into competitive multiplayer matches with hacks and cheats? That is effecting other players by breaking the rules.

Come on man, you can't be seriously acting like there is nothing wrong with this?

But then again, why should anyone take your opinion on anything seriously? You're barely smart enough to turn on your console.

Baka-akaB1134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

"If you don't hack or cheat, that's fine. If someone wants to run around with modded gear"

You live in a dream world . How it's will be addressed and affecting destiny aside ... it's not that simple in persistant online games or mmos .

Even if you dont partake in pvp and thus dont get attacked by gear they should have or access too , there are plenty issues like breaking an in game economy ... and that does affect everyone . It did even in games like Guild Wars that were supposed to not focus on loot and gears .

it can even shift the nature of the game's money , with gold being obsolete now than as*hats decided that because they can dump his cash and is already rich , they dont need to follow market value , dump stuff they didnt work upon on the cheap , and kill the value of the money

They can't win otherwise though... They need this to feel better at gaming.

nitus101134d ago

I have never seen the point either. I actually got an upgrade to a game which gave me all sorts of stuff, however this made the game far to easy and IMHO no challenge. I very quickly restarted the game without the extra features and found the game was so much more fun to play with that added sense of achievement when you completed a difficult task.

This is what bothers me about 'always online' titles.

Ace Killa 081135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

Well it should change to "any game" titles. This can happen to any game online or offline.

KrisButtar1135d ago

That is true but in an offline game it is your choice to cheat and in an online games it is out of your control if cheating is going on. Which is one of the reasons I don't like these always online titles either.

Bladesfist1134d ago

Actually this is not the case. Google "Fully authoritative server". These kinds of cheats are not possible on a server that is controlling everything and only accepting inputs from the players.

Not saying all cheats are impossible though. Client side stuff like wallhacks would still be possible.

DefenderOfDoom21135d ago

Yeah , i hope they ban the hackers !

ramiuk11135d ago

problem is with the hacks they use and the way the console is modded,they just create a new Nand number and go back online with same console.
they cant ban them

hello121135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

I knew a person who had a chipped x box 360 and he never bought a 360 game ever. He told me you could never play multiplayer due to the risks of getting caught.

This is likely just single player and not effecting anyone but you.

[email protected] Its been years since i spoke to that guy, but he told me he stays offline because its easier to not get tracked by Microsoft and you get noticed more if you cheat. If they catch you they can ban the id of your console. Not sure how it works for Destiny playing by yourself.

Gh05t1135d ago

Last time I heard Destiny was an always online game. Is it possible to play destiny "single player"?

I have played it by myself but I was still connected to the server and others were in the tower.

ramiuk11135d ago

not been like that for years.
in old chipping days it was because of the disk flags etc,but since its been full on nand hacked they can just modify all code and unban them selves at will.
dlc free too
