Sony has been stumbling a fair bit of late – the PS+ price rise, the underwhelming reveal of the PS4 Pro, as well as its disappointing feature set, and now, the lack of mods for Bethesda’s games on PlayStation – and Microsoft have been having some good fun with Sony’s missteps. Nothing they have done comes close to the savagery of the game sharing video for PS4 that Sony made after E3 2013 had concluded, but it’s still been fun to see them take some shots.
Their newest line of attack? The lack of mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Remastered on the PS4. Microsoft’s Xbox UK account posted a hilarious new tweet listing all the features that the Xbox One S has, including backwards compatibility, UHD Blu Ray support, and now, support for mods in Bethesda’s games. It’s a continuation of the checklist style of tweets they’ve been posting since the PlayStation meeting a couple of days ago.
Even Major Nelson got in on the fun with a short tweet about mod support on Xbox One. Looks like Microsoft are gonna milk this for all it’s worth. And I’d say it’s well earned- have at it, guys, and maybe the outrage can make Sony change their tune.
