Can't see what you posted but I presume they're just new characters, which are exactly that, SKINS. They don't rock the boat like actual game-changing mods do.

[QUOTE="Kinthalis"]

Not gonna happen, outside of a very limited number of games via an extremely limited toolset. Just like the Halo forge, just like little big planet.

 

Actual mods always have the ability to increase instability into a game. You take the good and you take the bad with mods, thankfully the good usually outwieghs the bad.

You're crazy if you think a console developer is going to allow some random people to create mods that could potentially break the game in some way, or introduce instability. Not going to happen.

This. I imagine if this comes to fruition, it'll be harnessed in a very controlled manner. Still a pretty cool step forward however. Whenever people are given toolsets to mess with on consoles, they come up with some pretty impressive things. see: LBP, Trials, Minecraft.

UT 3 on PS3 allowed PC mods to be played.

Several mods done here,most apparent one master shief,and 3rd person UT is FP.

This is on PS3 :lol:

Last gen and next gen systems are not the same, however. Sure they won't be able to completely change the games like PC, but additional content and tweaks are achievable.

The article says "We're still doubtful we'll ever see mods on the X1, but this is the closest ever". Doubtful means "not going to happen"

Thats actually pretty cool

 

But I see two things from this.

Sony will try to take a cue, and do this (more than likely) if MS is actually going to.   (who would blame them, its a good idea)

Secondly I only expect this in infancy for either console.  I suspect a handful of titles on either system will have mods.  (I highly doubt they will have them within the first year of either console's life)

However, if there do end up being a lot of Mods on consoles now, that is good, a step in the right direction imo.

Maybe limited mods implemented in to the game, but defiantly not full messing with resources, it would make DLC vulnerable to be cracked

IF they did mods, they wouldn't be free, if they did that... Then there would be even less incentive to get DLC.

So I think the mods will end up costing, and thats if they even show up on consoles.

It is a PC confirmed. All you need now is upgradable components,bbkkristian

Why the hell would you want that? Why not just buy a PC then?

I thought the whole point was to be cheap and easy.

Mods wont look as good since modders wont have access to the full hardware/features on normal X1s. But enabling them will allow anyone with a devkit to create some good things!

But between the features that have been available to the pc (so far) i would rather have cross platform online play.

Had nothing to do with PC mods. I know they're awesome. Point was on consoles the devs won't care and the community won't care.

Following news that Xbox One can be used as a dev kit, it looks like mod support could be incoming too.

Published on Jul 25, 2013

In a first for Xbox, it looks likely that Xbox One will support mods.

Following news that any Xbox One can be used as a dev kit, it was asked on Reddit if this means the console would support mods.

"It's up to developers to support that," answered Microsoft's Major Nelson. "These are two very different things."

His answer suggests that the capacity for modding is there, if developers create games in a way that will support it.tormentos

I think it's a great idea. I don't see any reason why Sony wouldn't follow suit.

Sony did it with PS3. Problem is devs don't utilize it at all.

MS might win the next gen if this news is true. Mods is one of the biggest reasons why games are superior on PC (imo).rjdofu
I would love to see mods be supported on consoles, but I am a little pessimistic about the quality of the tools developers would provide to console gamers and UI of such tools. Regardless, this is something to be excited about if true. However, I wouldn't say its one of the biggest reasons games are so much better on PC.

To work on a console a dev would have to provide pretty extensive modding tools. Not sure how this would work ....blue_hazy_basic

especially if the console can't hand the mod...or number of mods.  Hello system crashes.  "bu-bu, only PC has teh problems!"

This will make game developers lazy and force the game community to complete the development of the game. Look at Bethesda for example, they released so many incomplete games.
