    Remember about a month ago, when Bethesda said Sony denied mods for Fallout 4 and the upcoming re-release Remaster of Skyrim on the PS4? Turns out, as I predicted, there's been a change of plans and now mods will indeed be coming to Skyrim and Fallout 4 for the PS4, along with "native 4k" support. Mods will be released for Skyrim first, with Fallout 4 being updated sometime in the future.

    As noted, mods won't be able to use outside resources (sorry, no Thomas the Tank Engine dragons), but it's still an important first step for game mods on game consoles.

    Well, tbh, if you buy Skyrim on Xbox or PS4, you're not going to get the best mods anyway, as 90% of them require Skyrim Script Extender anyway. But ya, if you wanna enjoy TES games and Fallout games in all their modded to hell glory, buying them on console isn't exactly the best idea.

    Also, no loli rape mods alone should be a sign that you need Skyrim on PC!

    This mod business with Bethesda games is the main reason I've decided to get Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on PC.

    Now hoping sega will upload genesis games on psn and then allow you to mod it like on steam. :creep:
    Of course we won't see awesome ones like sonic mega mix or streets of rage remake, but you will be require to sign up for sega.net like when you had dreamcast and then use thier SDK which looks basically like Super mario maker built in the retro engine by christan whitehead. :P

    Well, better than nothing. I guess that's all that Sony would let BethSoft do. Way to murder your sales for two AAA titles, Sony. Now, if only you were allowed more mod storage on Xbox One... Guess PC is still the way to go!

    Vanilla Mods are not really mods.

    More like cheats,less likely they are really mods,unless there becomes someway to bypass the limit by tricking Sony somehow.

    What a smart business move ! Tricking people into thinking that they approved the mods , People will read the headlines like always and fall for it, Sales will go up again , But what do you know , No external assets (like what ?) , And what they're basically offering are custom settings ,Not mods. Nice move Bathesda , Nice move.

    It's Sony who has their panties in a wad over external assets, not BethSoft. And while no external assets is a punch in the dick, there's still other things that can be done within the current system of assets, such as script-based mods (unless they're disallowing even that). But at this point if I had to pick a console to play Skyrim Remastered on, it would be the Xbox One (good thing I have a nice PC, lol).

    Sony is on the wrong , we got that already , but bathesda is a manipulative gaming company as well , first for promising the mods without even reaching some sort of a deal with Sony or making sure it was even possible and two , for playing with words and headlines.
    And mods with no external assets are bullshit and you know it.

    I'll just have to agree to disagree with you and leave it there.
    Well, that is a damned shame. Strictly vanilla asset mods will still be better than nothing, but it's a big letdown.

    So glad I won't have this version of the game, PC port for the win :P Screw Sony's anti-modding cowardice.

    Sony lost touch with the consumer.

    PS4 store looks like a shovelware dump nowdays. They don't seem to even care if the games are decent or worthy of a PS4 release. It's ok for an almost open environment like steam but not what I'd expect from an overpriced walled garden like PS store.

    Sony is all about making a quick buck nowdays, no man's sky and ps pro being the most recent examples.

    They only went back on this because Bethesda went ape nuts and Sony had to do some damage control.

    It would be more accurate to have them as 'Cheat Mode' than mod because you can't really do much with it. I guess it's better than nothing like Inafune said.
