Hines says he's been playing the game on the PS4 everyday for weeks.
Right when I was sure to get this game for PC I hear that there might be mods for PS4. This is going to be a tough decision...
Keep in mind that these console mods are going to be regulated, so don't expect to see every PC mod on consoles.
Yeah I highly doubt consoles will get texture mods besides character skins
id honestly get it on pc, like what zawarudo said, youll have more freedom on pc. PLUS run it at a higher res/fps if you have the pc for it.
Cant get 1440P on PS4. PC it is for me
If mods is what you're looking for then I'd say go for PCs version. You want have as much on console as you will on pc. You'll also be able to push the looks of the game better on pc than you would console.
Also keep in mind many of the best mods change fundamental gameplay aspects of the game, many with scripts that can't be used on consoles. So still, PC will most certainly be the best place to mod the game. Though it will be nice to see what options they provide on consoles.
Consoles will not get mods that require a script extender. There's no way for that to happen. So really big mods that alter/change/extend the scripts won't be available on consoles. Don't get me wrong I'm happy that consoles are starting to get some of the benefits that we PC players have had. But PC is still going to be the place if your really looking forward to any mod coming out. Especially the really big mods that drastically change things.
Actually, they said that there WILL be mods on PS4 since they announced the mod tools. The only reason it wasn't mention on stage was because it was during MS conference.
Good to hear that the PS4 development is going smoothly, the last thing i want is another Skyrim PS3 mess.
I think all the problems the Bethesda GS games had on PS3 were due to the hard to code architecture of PS3. Now that the PS4 is more PC-like there should be no problems, except for those Bethesda trademark bugs.
Just what I would said, but you beat me to it. As for the mods thing. Why the hell not? It's not as if Sony don't support mods for their games. Anybody here owns Unreal Tournament 3 for Ps3? Mad mod support!!!
If they f-up the PS4 version and the Xbox one version runs smoothly they obviously did it on purpose. I truly doubt any of that will happen and both version will be good.
I don't understand that way of thinking. Why the heck would a developer want to go though the trouble of building or porting a game to a console then screw it up on purpose? Does that really seem sensible to you? What is there to gain from that? If they hated Sony and it fans so much, would it be easier and cheaper to just not do the port?
@bigpappy When did I say they would? Did you read what I wrote? "I truly doubt any of that will happen and both version will be good" I can understand peoples concern with Sony versions of Bethesda games from last generations. (fallout, oblivion, skyrim etc) I don't think it will be a problem this gen with the ps4 pc architecture. Anyways I think you jumped the gun on my comment. Lol! Save your anger for someone else.
@Bigpappy Well they could be aiming for total parity to keep MS happy and then miss the mark like what happened with Mad Max. MM actually runs better on the xbone even though the GPU is weaker. The same thing could happen here if their target platform is xbone.
There will be DLC and a seson pass and thats fine. This is in such stark contrast to the idea that ND would do an Uncharted 4 DLC... where everyone acts like its the end of the world. But hypocrisy aside, I think this game will be just fine on PC with modestly decent specs.
Could you please define modestly decent specs? I have an i7 860 @ 2.83 Ghz and a GTX 750 SC, I hope to be able to run it as I have always enjoyed Fallout and ES games so much more on PC when I have had the chance to mod it.
this just makes me more excited and calm knowing the PS4 version is going along great. really happy with the mod confirmation.
Makes sense since Sony is no stranger to mod support on their consoles
Another GOTH contender. Can't wait to play this
Game of the hour
Lol game of the hour lol
Good to hear about the PS4 version. Skyrim was ruined for me on the PS3. I got it for PS3 as it was my chosen platform for single player games last gen. I was not much of a PC gamer back in 2011 and didn't have the power in my PC to run Skyrim. I was really into Skyrim for about 3 solid weeks. Until I started to hear issues with saves. Once the save file go to a certain amount of MB the game would crash/break. So I decided to hold of playing it until it was fixed and went back to playing Dark Souls. Then once that was finally fixed I decided to wait until the DLC was released. So I waited and waited and waited. Then the DLC came out and I bought them all. Only to find one of the DLC packs made the game crash. So again I quit it. Then by the time that was fixed I just couldn't be bothered to play it. Then I built a new PC and Skyrim was one of my first games I bought for my newly built PC. But I was still feeling the same about the game that I simply could not be bothered with it. So yer PS3 sort of ruined Skyrim for me.
Buy on windows free on xbox?
No, but if you buy on X1 you get Fallout 3 for free
Got all the parts for my rig now except maybe swapping the budget 8GB RAM for 2X8GB HyperX RAM(It has heat sinks built around it): Cooler Master 690III Mid Tower MSi R9 390 8GB Intel i5-4590 Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 motherboard Seasonic G Series 750W power supply 1TB HDD drive (will get SSD later for OS and high load time games (fallout 4) On top of that got a BenQ GL2460 monitor with low blue light mode I normally would've gone for a cheaper setup but the store I bought it from was shutting down so everything was cheaper than you would get them on Amazon for, and I can bring them back to the other store if they have issues :D
