As Sony and MS continue to make this console gen the “why haven’t we just moved to PC already, oh right, paid exclusives” generation.
Nintendo, for me, gets kind of a pass for just doing their own thing, despite the shrieks of others, and the mockery over whatever gimmick that they’re playing with at the time. (gimmicks that will then be copied by Sony and/or Microsoft in the most ass way possible, then praised by the same people panning them when Nintendo messed with them)

I think this all settles down to is two companies made an initial deal, that is to bring the availability of mods to the PS4. But as time wore on the both Bethesda and Sony became less inclined on compromising on the details of how the service would operate. It hit a roadblock. Bethesda wanted more support and a larger data cap for modders to upload. Sony wanted a QA for mods (if this is true). It all fell through. Whether or not Sony if the most obstinate of the two, it is clear that they’ve been exasperatingly silent on… Read more »

Well you DO have to do some work to run mods, beth should open up mod order to modders so they can run a simple script to sort mods, its not perfect but at least its something.

Suddenly that 50% off Xbox One at Hastings’ going out of business sale is looking mighty attractive…

Sony probably wants a million a GB on the bandwidth, that and they they are control freaks….

Having never bought a ‘new gen’ console, I’m feeling more and more justified for believing it was a con the whole time.
Enhanced graphics? Nope.
New gameplay mechanics? Nope.
4k? Nope.
New IPs? HA! Nope, its all remakes!

It was a con guys! And gamers fell for the okey doke! We never needed a new console, and everyone is spending $400+ on the exact same Skyrim as last gen with no new features.

Yeah… Sony has been really close handed with the PS4. Besides the mod situation, they’re the only ones in the way of cross play for fighting games between the PS4 and XBOX ONE. Microsoft already said they were down but Sony refused. Considering how relatively small the FGC is, having cross play would help a lot with the survivability of the online scene of many games. I mean, mainstream stuff like MKX and SFV will live for a while, but then you get stuff like Guilty Gear and King of Fighters which aren’t AS mainstream, With time, the online base… Read more »

I’ll admit, I actually do prefer playing on consoles over PC. Most of my friends are there, it’s useful to watch Netflix as a family, I can’t build anything, especially a computer (which why is that something people who always go, “buy a PC” miss? That is really important information because not everyone has the time or now how to build them and don’t want to spend tons on pre-made ones which really needs to improve), feel more comfortable playing on them and I just find it less toxic, with far less elitism, threat and just awful and stupid things… Read more »

So, to recap:
– The new PS4 controller’s “wired” option disables the headset function
– No user-created content via game mods
– No 4K Blu-ray playback on the PS4 Pro
– Likely not true 4K resolution on the PS4 Pro

Did I miss anything? Because Sony’s really making an effort to look dumb.

Hmm No mods on 2 games ill never play again I think ill live Skyrim isnt really a paragon of anything Its gameplay and writing were sub par even the touted dark brotherhood and thief guild lines It only acceled in world design but with less buggy games that shine in 2 or all 3 of those areas i couldn’t stand going back to a bethesda game of all places on console Fallout 4 admittedly rocked writing wise with great side characters like nick and the other sinth guy whos name escapes me But again that too is another game… Read more »

Dang it, Sony! You couldn’t even wait until a real next generation started to act like you think your shit doesn’t stink!
Please just let Bethesda give us the mods!

I think The Last Guardian just got delayed. Bad news avalanche. Next week, Sony will announce a new firmware update that means you can only start applications after listening fully to Barber’s Adagio For Strings.

I mean, I’ve been really upset with Sony this past year. They have made multiple decisions that have been really frustrating. And I can’t help but feel so frustrated with the direction their company is going (or seems to be going). So, my instant reaction was that Sony was being a major asshole with this. But from what I have read, supposedly Bethesda also shares blame in this. It’s not like their company hasn’t also been riddled with terrible behavior and bs tactics. And it sounds to me like, they failed to meet Sony’s criteria. Now, you can say Sony… Read more »

If consoles want to be PC’s, they need to start offering the same types of features PC’s do. If consoles want to keep a tight ship and a meddle-free environment, then they need to keep focusing on the old console strengths, like ease of use, not being shitty PCs.

Console makers can’t have their cake and eat it too, that’ll just result in an inferior product to PCs, maybe kept alive by a sprinkling of great exclusives (like Bloodborne).

Reminds me of something a person on Kotaku said. Back last Gen, Sony was in second place to the XBox and they were willing to do whatever to make things work. The PS3 was largely a pretty open system as far as consoles go (barring the whole linux being removed thing) while the 360 was a VERY closed environment. Heck, the PS3 totally supported modding, as it was a major feature in Unreal Tournament 3, but few companies went through with it. Sony did whatever they could to paint themselves as the “good guys” and did very little to create… Read more »

I would like to point out that as much as everyone loves Skyrim and Fallout, Bethesda has never been a developer with a lot of technical finesse in the programming department (IMHO). They usually brute force their way through problems and bugs (And it’s very understandable considering the size of their games and the overall world mechanics). In this case, I assume they knew one way of doing it which aligned perfectly with Microsoft platforms and formats, but decided to push this idea on the PS4 without trying to adapt to Sony’s policies. I can understand Sony not moving since… Read more »

Sony’s terrified of cracking. Which is weird, because that’s what everyone loved most about the PSP.
