Delay In Fallout 4 PS4 Mod Support Issues is Sony’s Fault?
Fallout 4 mod support for Xbox One was released back in late May, and Bethesda promised that mod support for PS4 will be available in June. However, Bethesda did release the Fallout 4 PS4 mod support, but it had a size limit of 900 MB, which was way low compared to Xbox One’s 2 GB limit.
Bethesda announced that it will fix the issue with Fallout 4 PS4 mod support as soon as possible, as they needed the help of Sony itself to fix the issue. PlayStation 4 users are growing restless as PC and Xbox One users are enjoying mods.
However, there might be a possibility that problem is not from Bethesda’s end, but Sony’s. In a recent Twitter question answer session, a fan asked Bethesda’s Peter Hines about the Fallout 4 PS4 mod support. Peter Was not very direct about it, but he did leave a hint that the reason they could not fix PS4 issues is Sony.

All of the statements lead to one conclusion that Fallout 4 PS4 mod support issue needs to be resolved by Sony, but the company is not responding to Bethesda’s requests. So Sony could be the main problem that is preventing PlayStation 4 users from enjoying mods (there could be other parties involved too, but which ones?).
Peter Hines did assure that Bethesda is trying its best to give fans an update about Fallout 4 PS4 mod support. On the other hand Sony has not issued any statement, and their silence could mean that they are not interested in fixing the issue.
In related news, it seems that Bethesda stole an idea of a Fallout New Vegas mod and used it in their Fallout 4 DLC, Far Harbor. A side quest available in Fallout 4 Far harbor DLC, dubbed Brain Dead, not only has locations that look exactly similar to the mod but also the premise of the quest and even the character archetypes. However, the dlc and side quest similarity has been claimed to be a coincidence by the officials.
Fallout 4 is a post apocalyptic open world RPG developed by Bethesda for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
