Skyrim Remaster And Fallout 4 PS4 Mod File Size Limit Is Unacceptable

Two of the best games on the PS4 don’t even have ‘full’ mod support.

Skyrim Remastered Edition

As this generation has progressed, Sony are showing signs that they may be moving back away from their #4ThePlayers mantra, and back into a trap that characterized the later years of the PS2, and the early ones of the PS3.

There have been lots of smaller examples of Sony’s missteps, but the one that stands out for me the most is the tantrum that they threw over the mods in Fallout 4 and Skyrim‘s remaster on their console. They are actively blocking and obstructing content from their players, and they are actively hindering one of their most valuable development partners, and all for what?

Having fewer restrictions on mods does not seem to have compromised the integrity of the Xbox One as a system in any way, and in fact, has probably made gamers more receptive to Microsoft’s offerings, and Bethesda likelier to favor Microsoft (even more than usual) going forward. What did Sony gain from this?

In the meanwhile, PS4 owners are left with a stripped down mods experience- owing to all the restrictions that mods on PS4 have, not many people are willing to go to the effort of making their mods work with the system to begin with, and the few mods that are available are pretty tame. A recent reports claims there are six times more mods on Xbox One than on PS4– and all because of Sony’s restrictions. This stems due to the fact that the mod file sizes on PS4 is just restricted to 1GB compared to 5GB on Xbox One.

The restrictions on mods on PS4 are unacceptable, Sony- you need to fix this.

    • Dotcum22

      so in your words 4 months ago Sony was destroying MS for months and months in UK and USA??? or does it only count when MS wins NDP???

    • Riggybro

      Aside from your campaign narrative on behalf of Microsoft I do wonder why you keep comparing Xbox sales to PS4?
      The closest competition Xbox has in worldwide sales is Wii U and Vita not PS4.

      It’s like saying your little league team is winning the World Series.

    • Hvd

      could care less about sales in japan im in the usa thats all i care about and the xbox one is destroying the ps4 in the

    • Riggybro

      Oh well, that’s convenient. I guess it may be of interest for some of the 95.6% of the rest of the world not in the USA though.

      Xbox always does well in the USA. Seriously no one is surprised. What was surprising was that they were doing so badly for 3 years there. Now they are back to normal.

      Question: If you “could care less about sales in Japan” as you say, how much less could you care? Lots or not much? You left it hanging there…

    It also has to be improved on the Xbone too.

    Console modding in general is pretty pathetic, but I guess Bethesda would rather not fix its own games.

  • Ryan John Davies

    I get where you are coming from but I can understand why Sony restricted mods, they have had a few hacking problems in the past and they are worried that people might exploit an open system, hopefully this will change in the future. The mod size I don’t really know why it’s so small but the mods aren’t that big anyway so it doesn’t matter too much

  • Did you even look at the source your linking to? It was published Oct 26 when Skyrim first launched and the number of mods have increased exponentially. 1502 XB1 to 970 PS4 which is hardly 6 times more mods. Mod size isnt even the issue here since 90% of mods are 50KB to 50MB. Its the linking externally seems to be the only real drawback.

    I see my comment was deleted. Im sorry if you are such special snowflakes that you can’t take criticism for your terrible reporting.

  • Jesse Griffin

    Hey sony. YOU SUCK any your making it easier for a hack simply because you are stealing money from your own players and investors by bieng a spoild brat child with hacking abilities which obviously you have access because your a company either way its considered hacking because we the people did not say it was ok to change what we paid for and own.I paid for it and ill do what i want with my console thanks to computers. Sony may end up like Sega
