Writing on their official blog, the stewards of DOOM, Wolfenstein, and The Elder Scrolls wrote that despite months of development and discussions, Sony has refused to allow Fallout 4 mods to work on PlayStation. As a result, mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Remastered are now Xbox One and PC exclusive.
The last couple of weeks has not been great for Sony. Considering the lukewarm response to the feature-incomplete PS4 Pro. The recent price hike for PSN. Their refusal to allow cross-play between Xbox One, PC and PS4, and their past, frankly strange comments about EA Access not offering good value. It's beginning to feel like Sony's sales lead is leading the company down an arrogant path.
Even if you're not a fan of Fallout 4 or Skyrim, Sony's decision sets a disappointing precedent for the future of mods on the PlayStation platform. At least for now, it would seem that mods for Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim Remaster will be exclusive to Xbox One and PC. If enough PlayStation fans voice their concerns, perhaps Sony will (rightfully) reverse their decision, but that of course remains to be seen.
