    Sony Not Allowing Mods on PS4 for Fallout 4/Skyrim

    They're becoming the next Nintendo...

    Mods, by the way, have been available in Fallout 4 on the Xbox One since May.

    After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition.

    Like you, we are disappointed by Sony’s decision given the considerable time and effort we have put into this project, and the amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive. We consider this an important initiative and we hope to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience. However, until Sony will allow us to offer proper mod support for PS4, that content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PlayStation 4 will not be available.

    I'm seeing a lot of discussion around the web on this. The flag waving die hard fans who will blow Sony no matter what they do are saying that this decision will not impact the sales of the console this holiday season.

    I'm not sure what delusional planet they live on, but I hope to never share oxygen with them.

    The point, from a consumer, is not console sales. The POINT is giving your consumers a choice. Mods are a hugely popular aspect of PC gaming. The fact that Bethesda figured out how to bring this to consoles is amazing. It's been available in Fallout 4 on the Xbox One since May, and works really well. This is a huge step forward in console gaming; well, until Sony tries to make us all take 2 steps back.

    I just don't get it. I'm waiting for Ashton Kutcher to jump out and tell me I'm on that dumb show Punkd.


    Not allowing mods - our players don't want that choice

    No 4k bluray on the PS4Pro - our players don't watch discs, they only stream

    No form of an "Elite" controller - our players don't want that choice

    Not allowing cross platform play with the Xbox One - our players don't want that choice

    Not allowing EA Access on PS4 - it's not a good value; and our players don't want that choice


    These are all limiting the CHOICE of the consumer. Well Sony, that "other" console allows all of that plus more. But oh yeah, according to you they are not your competition. Your only competition is the PC.

    Nothing against your post HC, your delivery is perfect and punctuation impecable as ever. But for some reason, I just prefer to hear it from Naomi. Maybe its the lack of beard? lol ;)



    *Edit. And yes Sony, the 'Players' would love mods on many titles especially GTAV.

    Just wish she would move her hair slightly to the side, kind of blocking my view.

    I don't get it... what possible reason does Sony have to refuse to do these things?

    Well given what they said about EA Access, I'll go with....

    "it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,"

    I'll read that as ... "it does not bring the kind of profit that Sony shareholders have come to expect".

    This really pisses me off. I was out sick from work all last week and finally started playing Fallout 4 and I absolutely love it. To be honest I am not sure if I would of even spent much time playing the mods as there seems to be a nearly endless amount of things to do in the regular game plus the DLC, but I know I would of at least tried a few and the fact that Sony doesn't even think I should have that option is absurd.

    My hope is that Sony sees this backlash and rethinks this absurd policy or offers some sort of reasonable reason for it, if one even exists. Either way it has for the time being caused me to completely put off getting Skyrim if there are no mods, and if this is going to be their policy going forward it makes the decision to get a Scorpio over a Pro that much easier.

    It really annoys me that they dismiss cross platform play and blame it on the players! How can they just assume people not want someting they never had the opportunity to try? Of course players would welcome cross platform play - it would mean their favorite multiplayer games will have a longer life span, based on a larger group of people playing it, not to mention faster matchmaking. Who wouldn't want that?

    It doesn't just add quests or anything, it adds whatever you can think of to enrich your gaming experience. From new radio stations, to changing voices, to new weapons in Fallout, to new enemies and being able to ride dragons in Skyrim. Mods are pretty much whatever you can think up.
