Sony Blamed for No Fallout 4 Mod Support on PS4
A blog post yesterday on Bethesda's website revealed that the many months Bethesda's worked to introduce mod support for the PS4 version of Fallout 4 have all been the fault of Sony:
"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.
We will provide an update if and when this situation changes."
For any players waiting to create wacky settlements or turn Paladin Danse into Buzz Lightyear on PS4, this is a huge disappointment. Sony has not commented on the issue as of yet but this is just another in a series of fumbles they've made since revealing the Playstation Pro cannot play 4K Blu Rays. If it was due to a software issue, it would be more understandable if the Xbox One has an easier time implementing the mods since it's using the Windows 10 operating system but if that were the case, Bethesda would have said that in their post.
Meanwhile, Xbox has been using Sony's drawbacks to their advantage:
The vicious cycle continues.
