Todd Howard told Newsweek that there are still issues like storage and licensing preventing the release of PS4 console mods.
Well, they're working great on Xbox, especially with the update, so I'm sure they'll work out the kinks eventually. Kinda sucks that they're forcing a schedule on themselves though.
How the tables have turned. Xbox One seems to be more open than Playstation now.
Comes with the territory and the deal they made with Beth a year ago.
please tell me more i keep seeing ppl talk about this but i dont remember any deal between the 2 (not saying it didnt happen just dont remember it
They partnered up from the start, I don't remember if FO4 or DLCs came early to xbone but they announced mods coming to xbone first, from the start at e3 2015 xbox conference.
In one aspect...
Have you even read the article? MS and Bethesda have been working together to release the mods since Fallout 4 and the whole Windows platform that made it a bit easier. Not like Sony is closing them off. Sony would still be considered more open than MS, hence why indie games release on PS4 and not XBOX and the fact that finally after a long time, MS finally allowed cross platform play.
"hence why indie games release on PS4 and not XBOX." Is that why there are more than a 1000 indie games coming to xbox? At least Microsoft is making sure we're not getting stupid Mario clones.
ms had cross platform play many years ago in a game called shadowrun. so now what is the hold up with games like rocket league allowing ps4 and xbox one players together?
Playstion was the first console to support mods with the ps3 and unreal tournament...historically Bethesda also has a history of shafting sony with support every step of the way
This is probably the realest comment on n4g lol
Bethesda has been in Microsoft's pocket since last generation. Everything on Playstation is "complicated" for them -despite the PS4 being fully open and easier to develop for.
i love their games but im pretty sure todd howard and bill gates have a lemon party every other week.
Its funny how they managed to ''monetize'' mods anyway , by integrating them into all game versions they got free game upgrade in value
"We were the first to release expansions on consoles" Sonic and Knuckles, Grand theft auto London, and FF11 suddenly vanished from existence?
Also, if you ask him, he'd say Fallout 4 was the 2015 goty and he is the director of 4 consecutive gotys.
hurdles kinda rhymes with turtles. I love those guys 🐢
Thanks for your input xD
Come on Todd you were most definitely not the first to do expansions and dlc on consoles. You may have been the first to release an incredibly buggy game and get lauded for it though.
Lol if he is referring to Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion ... maybe they are who knows someone would need to look it up and fact check it
Mods would be great on consoles. Mods are way better than DLC that is for sure
I cannot wait to try them out, hope they are as good as PC.
yes this would be great to see mods on my PS4, if or when Skywind (morrowind mod) gets released it will be worth buying Skyrim on PS4
