GamesRadar: "More power could give current-gen's most ambitious game new life."
Can't we just install the PC version of game on PS4?
Yes* given the fact that the PS4 runs on a modified version of FreeBSD and the X1 similar to Win8 all you have to do is pop in the skyrim disc and wait a few mins, install and wolah Skyrim on next gen consoles. *Do note I am lying
What the hell is wolah?! Do u mean voila?!
Wolah is the new shout you get as a bonus after installing it like zeal0us said :)
@die...lmao that made me spit out coffee....bubs OT I'd rather have next gen Oblivion.
Yeah, you can install EVERY disc based game you've ever owned on the PS4. PS1/PS2/PS3/Xbox/Xbox 360/Dreamcast/Wii/WiiU, you name it, it can play it. Except for Xbox One games. /s
How about a new game altogether?
I was going to say; why port Skyrim when you can just have a brand new iteration?
or fallout 4 :P
I'd be down for fallout 4. ES is really good but FO is great IMO.
Elder Scrolls Online is a new game all together. So now can we ask for Skyrim again?
As for me, I'm not hyped for it at all. I need a proper TES game, not some sh*tty MMO.
@cool...I was inclined to be in the skeptical camp but there are rumors, deep in the internet that those who are beta testing it are losing their minds. Due to non disclosures nothing is being said except for some tidbits like "Jesus this is nothing like I thought. Holy fuck its awesome"
Either one better not be multi.. Stick to what works
games with character customisation... personally i like to play on pcs due to the fact that there are thousands of mods available...
I'm definately getting elder scrolls online when it comes to next gen.
How about the thousands of fantastic mods...oh wait...its still only a console so it only gets vanilla. I'm tired of "restricted" consoles.
I remember an article on N4g about a small mod for the 360 version IDK if it was true or not though.
Then don't play "restricted" consoles and you won't be tired of them. Thought that might have been an obvious enough solution. Don't want Skyrim. At all. Until Bethesda proves to me they can make a game that isn't full of bugs and relies on their fans to make it actually worth playing... yeah, I'll pass.
It's impossible to make a game this big with so many variables as Skyrim completely bugfree. They had to test for years to find all the bugs... If you want the best experience with these kinda games you have to play on PC anyway. Elders Scrolls games are PC games at heart and always will be. This is the future of gaming imho, very open games with unlimited possibilities through mods. Look at the Elder Scrolls series on PC, Minecraft, Just Cause 2, even GTA. They are all very much alive on PC because of mods. Then look at Star Citizen. It's a game that completely embraces that concept of every player being able to add to the game world. It's amazing.
@cloud. I call shenanigans. If the multitude of choice a player makes is what is being cited as the reason for bugs and glitches then how come the old mans head was spinning at THE BEGINNING OF MY GAME? I was not even 5 minutes into the game, had made zero choices and this guys head is spinning like a washing machine. 10 minutes later when I was outside the game froze. Its called poor programming and zero QA. Don't get me wrong, I love me some fallout but damn Bethesda just send their games out to a monkey for bug testing.
Yeah, I gotta say Hicken, you're missing out. Skyrim on my PS3 (yes, my PS3) was by far one of my favorite games this gen. It's certainly in my top 10. My gaming time is limited and I've got a low tolerance for buggy games that waste my time, but I experienced next to no issues with Skyrim. It crashed on me. Once. In over 100 hours of play. And in the distance I once saw a mammoth pop in. That's it. I agree with the majority of critics on this one. Skyrim was a masterpiece. It was one of the most ambitious games I've ever played and it absolutely delivered in my opinion. If you choose to skip out on this title, it's your loss.
To each his own. I got bored with Oblivion, too: just too much openness far too early. I suppose I'm used to how they scale such things in JRPGs, rather than essentially opening up the whole world to you right at the start.
Ok, you're right to skip it then. If you didn't like Oblivion, this is certainly more of the same. For me, I love the openness of the world. I spend most of the time with the game ignoring whatever I'm supposed to be doing and exploring. Often I'm trying to get from point a to point b and suddenly it's "Oh, what's that over there?" If the exploration aspect doesn't appeal to you I can understand you skipping it.
How about daggerfall on next gen systems. or oblivion. or morrowind. even those multiplayer ES games from the late 90s everyone hated. not that garbage game xD.
i would rather have fallout 4
Ok I loved Skyrim. Best game of this gen in my opinion. Still i'm happy playing it on my ps3 and would prefer them to put effort into a new game.
I played it on the nextgen console when it came out...on my PC. Plus the PS4 can't run Skyrim at 1440p with 60 fps like my PC can. And then of course there are the lack of mods which bring the experience down even more. In short, there are games that can be enhanced by nextgen consoles. Skyrim is not one of those. The PC version simply can't be beat.
I won't lie, I've been thinking how it would be pretty sick to see Bethseda/Sony to make a Skyrim port on PS4, almost as a huge apology for all the tech issues that Skyrim had. " This is just wishful thinking of course on my side
I saw "cloud" instead of "could" MINI HEART ATTACK
It will probably come out as a Gaikai/Azure version on next gen consoles. It might even run better because of the fact that it is streamed and not dependant on the PS360 hardware. That means they can put in an texture pack and other enhancements for the next gen cloud version. I'm pretty confident we'll see Skyrim next gen, along with a lot of other current gen titles.
I am so anxious and excited to see if the new Indie platform will show us small companies that want to interact with customers to create a high quality and ever changing game. A game envisioned and created by developers and players working together, that is a sight I would like to see. It is possible.
What the hell has that got to do with Skyrim?
why we need elder scrolls VI on next gen
I would rebuy the game of the year edition if released on PS4. I would love to play it with little or no loading times.
No we do not. Fallout 4 we need. Why do we insist on bringing everything in current gen to next gen? Why are we so obsessed with rebooting titles for the next gen?
Well there will eventually be an Elder Scrolls 6 which would be on next gen which I want more than fallout 4. I enjoyed fallout 3 but the full brown color scheme of the game really hurt my enjoyment too. Every elder scrolls game I've been able to admire a view, fallout I can. Either way can't wait for both.
I see what you're saying. I would love to see the engine used by Skyrim on Fallout. Cause I can't lie and say that Fallout was a great looking game. It was more mood and feel of the environment. But yes, both will be in my collection as well.
i want Fallout 4 on PS4!
I'd much rather have a Demons Soul. Skyrim is over rated.
Yeah even though I enjoy the Elder Scroll games, I'll take the Souls games over them any day. If they start doing next gen versions of past ES games, give me Arena, which lets you roam all of Tamriel. Elder Scrolls Online does that too, but I'd rather play solo or at most with 1-3 friends. That way the world will still have the detail ES games are known for, but you can still explore it with a friend.
I hope next TES has better quests or at least more variety. Even Oblivion had more variety.
Skyrim on PS4... with mod support. Drool.
I'm really interested to see what they can do with the TES series on next-gen consoles. WAY more power at their disposal. More quests, better graphics, just MORE! :) I know that Elder Scrolls Online is coming to next-gen consoles, but I'm talking about a proper TES games, not a MMO. *Don't take this to mean that I don't like the MMO concept, I do and will be playing it heavily. *Also, Fallout 4. Enough said.
Skyrim on pc with fxaa injector and enb at 1080p and 60 fps is literally like night and day with the console version. Not even comparable.
I'd rather play the new Elder Scrolls/Fall out on PC anyway. PC allows games and gamers more freedom to do whatever they want with the game. PC Mods WILL make whatever new game (Elder Scrolls or Fall out) outshine the console versions. I think today's new standard gaming computers ($600~$1000 price range) can easily out perform the PS4 and Xbone. Today's Skyrim mods does make the game look amazing. "PS4 graphics on a last generation game?! What magic is this?!" It's the magic of Mods....
If they do an upgrade vertion of skyrim on the Xbox One with all the add on I'll definitely buy it.
Or, maybe you should just play this on the pc? I mean, the mods are like small packs of free dlc and it just works better. I'll just wait for The Elder Scrolls VI. Im keeping an eye out for The Elder Scrolls Online, but cant say im too excited
