E3 2015: With Fallout 4 Mods, Xbox Horns In on PC-Exclusive Abilities

Fallout 4I try not to get into the whole console vs. PC arguments, because they’re a waste of my time. Most of my gaming is done on my PC, but that’s not because I think PCs are better; it’s because I can only afford one $500+ purchase every five years, and I have to get the one that lets me do the most things. Like work.

However, there’s one thing that PCs consistently have over consoles, and that thing is mods. As you may know, I love mods.

Apparently, Microsoft realized that mods are just a thing gamers want, so they’ve decided to let PC-developed mods for Fallout 4 to work on the Xbox One.

I don’t know who sucked what dick to make this happen, but it’s absolutely amazing that this is even a thing. I don’t know how the hell this is supposed to work. I can’t even begin to comprehend how they’re going to put that shit together.

So first Microsoft managed to make people care about Halo 5 by hiring Keith Davids. They managed to make people care about Xbox One by finally getting their shit together with backward compatibility. And they managed to make Xbox One a more desirable console by allowing Fallout 4 mods.

Three things to care about, each breathing new life into something old…OH MY FUCK, HALF-LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!
