When Skyrim comes out for the current gen consoles, I'm definitely getting my hands on a copy! Who else is?

Well, I'm getting it for free, so I guess I am.

Why would you buy a Bethesda game on consoles? You miss out on things like Falskaar and Enderal.

@foxhound_fox: I'm pretty sure there's mods this time, like how they did it with fallout 4

Nah, not worth paying for it again on Console, I'll buy it some day on PC when I have a good rig for mods. There's too many good games I haven't played for me to play games I already have.

Like?

That 2GB limit kind of puts the kibosh on anything worthwhile.

I don't know of any limits but i do know they could download mods for Fallout 4.

There is a 2GB maximum limit on the mods on consoles. Most mods on PC worth downloading are bigger than that. Even some weapon or armour packs are multi-GB affairs.

It's free on PC so I'll definitely get it. I only hope it doesn't leave me disappointed that it's not better than what you can currently get the game to look like with ENB mod's etc.

Why is there a limit though? Is it the harddisk in there or just a limit set by Bethesda?

It's a limit set by Sony. They don't want people overloading their already stressed network.

That isn't correct. It's a 2GB limit on XBox 1; it is even worse on PS4 (900MB)

@foxhound_fox: it's pretty rough - only 900mb is... well, I guess it is moot since they haven't even implemented them yet on PS4, but it's pretty ridiculous

That pretty much means all that's going to be available is single-quests with no added assets and single-item mods (no packs). It's not even worth it.

If Skyrim SE's implementation is anything like Fallout 4, then it will be very limited. Currently, XB1 has a 2GB total cap - my fairly conservative mod package of Unofficial Patches + DynDOLOD + Better Vampires + a bunch of item packs alone would bust that cap easily. PS4's limitations are even worse; 900 MB cap, and certain assets can't be modded because the PS4 uses proprietary formats for them.

Finally, there's SKSE; many mods, such as SkyUI and the aforementioned DynDOLOD and Better Vampires rely on it. Unless XB1 and PS4 has some sort of application extension system for their executables that I don't know about, consoles won't be getting SKSE or the mods that use it.

@mggam3rs908: Well, it depends. If the graphics are basically the same as the PC version, probably not. But for anyone that had never played this game, I would highly recommend it. The game WILL consume your soul. >:)
